I hope everyone had a great weekend! Ours was busy like it always is!
Again, Joe and I both worked on Friday. When we got home we decided to have a relaxing evening. Joe grilled burgers while I played with Liam. Then after Liam was down we watched How I Met Your Mother before calling it a night. We are almost done with the series!
Liam decided to get up pretty early Saturday morning so I brought him into bed with me thinking we would just hang and then eventually get up. Well he ended up falling back asleep! So me and him snuck in an extra hour of sleep.
Then we went to my aunt’s to pick up the blankets she sewed for Liam. Liam loves his Aden and Anais swaddle blankets and sucks on them to fall asleep. They are quite large and now that Liam rolls all over I am not as comfortable putting him to bed with that big blanket. She cut the blanket into 4 and now they are the perfect size for Liam to sleep with.
In the afternoon we celebrated Joe’s birthday. We will be in Seattle for his birthday so we celebrated early. My grandma made banana cream pie (Joe’s favorite) and Joe’s sister Erin made an apple pie. My mom also made cupcakes for the kids. All of it was so yummy! And if you read my sweet tooth post you know it was a cheat day for me and I went hard! I ate so much pie my tummy hurt. Back to no sweets again and not sad about it.
It was fun to spend time with both of our families. It’s always fun to get both sides together and usually comes with lots of laughter.
Joe had a “boys night” so I decided to binge watch Fuller House.
Liam was up and ready to play by 6am so me and him spent some time together while Joe slept in (boys night was tough on him). When Joe got up him and Liam hung out on the couch together and watch some hockey highlights. They are adorable!
I decided after all the pie I ate that I needed to exercise in the morning. I thought I would try running. I haven’t ran since before I was pregnant so I knew it would be tough but good. I didn’t run far or fast but I ran and it felt good!
I had a return to make and Joe and I wanted new sunglasses so we went shopping. First we went to Olive Garden for lunch and then Victoria secret for my return and then sunglass hut for our new shades.
Joe’s parents invited us over for dinner. It was super yummy! It is always nice to spend quality time with them and Liam gets lots of love and attention too. His Grandpa is pretty funny but Liam isn’t always so sure.
Again, we had a wonderful weekend and are looking forward to our next weekend in Seattle!
