It was an eventful yet uneventful weekend. We tried to spend as much time as possible outside (bugs willing) and soak up the last of summer.
We spent a little bit of time outside. Joe found a grasshopper. Liam was not a fan but Owen had no fear and was very curious about it.
We then spent the rest of the evening inside relaxing.
Liam had woke up in the middle of the night with a wet bed. So I got up with him, changed his clothes, changed his sheets, and put them in the wash. When Owen woke up for the morning and I went into his room his bed was covered in poop! This never happened with Liam and never before with Owen. It was awful. His sheets went straight into the wash and Owen went straight into the bath. Poor kid!
After things settled down at home I was off to the gym to teach Sweat Circuit class. I then hustled home to get ready for family pictures.
We had Signe come over to do our family pictures again. She does great work. This time we were doing Owen’s 1 year pictures and smash cake, family pictures, and Liam’s 3 year pictures. Well, Owen did great but Liam was stubborn and unwilling to participate. We tried everything without success. Oh well! Owen loved his frosting on his cake.
After pictures it was lunch time and nap time for the boys. After nap we took the boys to my parents house for a sleepover so Joe and I could go on a date to celebrate our anniversary (a little early).
We took a quick picture before we left and then left our phones in the vehicle for our entire date. We went to Pier 500 in Hudson and then walked the pier. It was quiet and super relaxing. Then we went home to no kids and binged on some Netflix before calling it a night. Seriously, perfect.
I slept in and Joe got up early (why? lol). We were both able to get a lot done without the kids there. I cleaned up both boys rooms and put their clothes away and cleaned up the living room.
Then we went to get an oil change in my vehicle before heading to my parents to see the boys and stay for the Packer/Viking game.
We had lunch and went swimming before nap time. My parent’s had the game set up to watch out by the pool and it was amazing and so much fun. The boys went to nap shortly after the game started which was perfect for me to relax and watch the game.
Joe left during halftime to get ready to go hunting. It was Bow Opener on Saturday.
Liam woke up just before the game ended and was clearly still tired. He didn’t want to talk to anyone or do anything.
The game ended in a tie (ugh) and we stayed for a little while after but both my boys were having major meltdowns so we packed up and headed for home.
On the way home Joe called and said his dad was almost home from his elk hunt and was wondering if we wanted to meet over there to see the elk. So, we headed to his parents. Liam had so many questions but overall was happy to see the elk.
Then it was home for dinner. Both boys were still a little moody. I gave them both a bath and the put Owen to bed. Liam and I snuggled and watched a movie. Then he had his meltdown until Joe came home to help put him to bed.
Joe ended up shooting a doe which is great because we love the meat and needed more.
It was a super hot weekend and I’m glad we got to enjoy it outside! Have a great week!
