This weekend was a good one! The weather was perfect, we got a lot done, we had lots of family time, and we had some time to just relax.
We kicked off the weekend with the first of my birthday celebrations on Friday evening. My father-in-law, sis-in-law, bro-in-law, and nephews met us at Olive Garden for dinner, and then we headed back to my FIL’s house for presents and cake. Olivia helped me blow out my candles and, y’all, look at the expression on her face when my FIL was lighting the candles. #Classic I had no idea that she was even making those faces until I saw the pictures, but she was extremely concerned about the fire and she was talking about how she doesn’t like it. Lol.
Saturday the weather was ideal. The high was in the mid-seventies, there was a cool breeze, and the sky was as blue as I’ve ever seen it… not a single cloud in the sky. We cranked up some music (Ed Sheeran’s newest album… can’t get enough!) and set out clean off the porch and get it ready for the summer. We moved everything off the porch and I hosed the furniture and pillows down while B cleaned off the porch.
B had to play tennis around lunchtime, so we finished up the cleaning, and then it was time to get the kids some lunch. Afterward, I painted Olivia’s little fingers and toes, and then I put her down for her nap, and then I rewarded myself with some relaxation out in the sun. I put on my swimsuit, grabbed some sunscreen and my book, and I laid out in the sun for a little over an hour. Pure heaven.
Saturday evening we went to church, and it was finally warm enough to bust out the spring dresses and sandals. I had gotten just the right amount of sun, so I was on a Vitamin D high for the rest of the evening and it felt amazing. The kids looked so stinking cute in their spring colors, so I had to snap a few pictures of them… impossible these days, I tell ya! Jacob is always running off and Olivia never looks at the camera, so we’ll call these a win!
We met my parents and my uncle and his girlfriend at one of our favorite local pubs for brewskies and dinner, and then we headed home to binge watch GG.
Sunday was lunch at my mother-in-law’s and then the kids played in the garden forever. Olivia had refused to wear shorts and tennis shoes, and had decided instead to wear one of her “pretty dresses” and then she got it all dirty playing in the muddy water. Sigh. #JustWearYourJunkClothesForOnce
After dinner we took a walk down by the lake to soak up just a little more outdoor time. It was perfection.
