Linking up with Meghan from Clean Eats, Fast Feets for another Week in Review!
I ended up not doing a week in review last Monday since it was a holiday and I had the day off and usually don’t blog on those days. So… that means this week in review has double the fun! Honestly, though, it’s been a nice mix of productive, restful, and fun. I think I’m trying to fit in as much as possible while it’s so nice out.
Starting things, out we had a busy, but fun Labor Day weekend. I talked Josh and the kids into dressing up and going to the Ren Fest and we had a great time. Every year gets a little bit easier with the kids as they are able to walk more and enjoy exploring and people watching. More on that later…
Then the kids and I had a play date with a friend and three of her boys. The kids had a good time hanging out while Josh and some friends hung out at our house playing video games. We were able to hit up a splash pad and I am so happy that swim lessons has given them more confidence and there were no tears when water got in their eyes!
The guys continued game play well into the wee hours of the night, so I had some hang out time by myself once the kids went to sleep. Can’t argue with that too much.
My shadow joined me as she usually does.
This past week we have finally gotten a few things put away and rearranged. It really is never ending. We also filled a few bags with stuff to donate, which is always a good feeling. Somehow Enzo still had size 2T pants in the back of his drawer. Whoops! Thankfully Phoebe was more than happy to claim some of Enzo’s hand me downs, but with how fast they’re growing, I had to make use of some Labor Day sales to start stocking their closets for cooler weather. Someone is just as excited as her mama about unicorns.
I had every intention of spending all of this weekend being super productive, but amazing weather on Saturday was calling me and I dragged everyone on a nature walk, which ended up being a fantastic idea. Aside from some bug bites, it was a great day and we will absolutely be hitting up these trails again. There were these fun floating boardwalks that the kids loved and some flora that was completely new to me.
Now, to make this week more productive and I’m going to start my evening off right by hitting the gym later!
Have a fabulous week everyone!
I understand wanting to take advantage of the outdoors while we still have nice weather. I’m partially excited for Fall because recharging (does that even happen as a parent?) and dreading it because holy shit what are we gonna do trapped inside?!
I’m glad you had a great couple weeks. It looks fabulous and fun and fraught with unicorns. Go Pheobe!
Haha, I’ve heard of this whole “recharging” thing, but I too am uncertain as to whether or not it is a myth. I absolutely agree, though… the whole stuck inside thing is my least favorite part of winter. The kids don’t expel nearly enough energy, and quite frankly? I hate being outside and cold.
