It was so nice to be home with little plans this weekend, but that didn’t stop me from filling it up with lots of stuff! Here’s what we were up to this weekend… I did not take very many pictures this weekend as I was busy living life. You know how it goes.
Friday night Michael requested that we get out of the house for dinner, so we ventured out to our nearest fine dining establishment, Cracker Barrel. It’s close to our house and toddler friendly, so I’ll take it. Afterwards we headed to Lowe’s. I wanted to get Logan some play sand and look at options for our front landscaping. Michael decided to get a fire pit (yay!) and I also picked up an adirondack chair for Logan which he loves and is so cute! After Logan’s bedtime, Michael got the fire pit going and we spent some time outside.
On Saturday we had a lazy morning (Logan slept in late!) and then headed out to my company picnic for lunch. It started pouring down rain the moment we got there, so it wasn’t too pleasant. We stayed for the obligatory hour and then headed back home where we had a pretty lazy afternoon. My parents came up to visit that afternoon and we went out to dinner with them at our local Mexican restaurant. Logan ate his weight in chicken from our various Mexican dishes. We stopped at our city park to burn off some energy and Logan wanted to play in all the puddles. We stopped for ice cream on the way home and my parents introduced Logan to ice cream which he loved and probably ate way too much of. After bed time, Michael put on The Bachelorette and we started watching the latest season. I might be sucked in already!
Sunday morning Logan woke up really early, so Michael and I took turns with him while the other one of us slept a little longer. We met our friends for brunch and I decided that we may have to do brunch at home from now on. I barely get to catch up with them while trying to tame the monster that is a toddler at a restaurant. Oof. After all that he was asleep in the car the second we strapped him in, so we headed to Buy Buy Baby to get a baby gate and a couple other things to do more baby proofing. The kid is into everything and creates a path of destruction in every room he’s in! We came home and made a successful transfer to the crib and he continued to sleep for a long time. I think he may have had close to a 3 hour nap all together. Glorious!
So, while he napped, Michael and I got to work on our front landscaping. We ripped out the existing ugly shrubs in the front of our house, tilled up the ground, mixed in organic soil and expanded the edge. Once Logan woke up we all headed back to Lowe’s to purchase plants and more supplies. It was a lot more expensive than I expected, but it’s looking so much better. After a short break for bath and bedtime for Logan, I was back at it digging holes and planting boxwoods, hostas and hydrangeas. I am so scared I’m gong to kill the hydrangeas! Our soil is not the best so say a little prayer for me that they survive! I still have more to do, but I finally went inside to scrub off the layers of sweat and dirt and get ready for bed at 9 pm. So tired! But such a productive day! With that the weekend was over. Hoping to make some more progress on the yard this week!
