However... On weekends when I'm not planning to do a recap I feel a sense of relief. I'm not always trying to take a decent photo of whatever we're doing. Or worse, I'm not always thinking that we should be doing something fun so that I can write about it. Is just this the paradox of blogging about my everyday life? That sometimes it distracts you from actually living my everyday life?
One of my favorite sections of the river trail
On Saturday afternoon we went out to a casual dinner at Grassburger. It's an upscale fast food place. It was delicious but Abel aka Mr Wiggles / Mr Grabby-Hands makes it hard to eat. Lately I've been thinking I just need to embrace these years (which I am henceforth calling "the baby years") for what they are and accept that there will be plenty of time to go out to dinner later on.
Sharing is caring! So how about you give me some of your hamburger?
We started the day on Sunday with celebratory donuts. I don't actually like sprinkled donuts better than a classic raised glazed but sometimes they are so pretty I can't resist! I also wanted to be "sprinkle buddies" with Swede.
After church, Swede and I visited my parents to check out the new kiddie pool on their back deck. It was HOT this weekend!
Then I attempted to take some photos of Jonathan and the kids in honor of Father's Day.
Jonathan took the kids to visit his parents after nap time and I watched The Intern. I haven't watched a new movie (by which I mean a movie I haven't seen before) in ages! It was cute.
This week... I am hoping will be less hectic than last week. I was in Denver for work on Monday and Tuesday then had the dreaded root canal on Wednesday. I couldn't seem to get caught up after that. Do you ever feel like you're waiting for things to settle down? And maybe you should just accept that there is no such thing? [Although on second thought how can I be so busy when I have time to watch an entire movie on a Sunday afternoon? This is all my head, Isn't it?]
Love live the Baby Years!
