This weekend was very busy and filled with lots of fun!
Our friends from Oregon are still in town so we decided to go bowling. Annie met us out and it was just a crazy evening of the kids running all over. First they wanted to bowl, then then didn’t and only wanted to pretend to play the games they have there, then suddenly they wanted to bowl again. All of this while trying to order and eat dinner. It was chaos and FUN! I love watch our kids play and have fun together.
I had sweat circuit in the morning and when I got home I started to clean the house a little bit and decided it was time to get rid of the high chair and switch to a booster seat. Oh my goodness doesn’t he look so big?
It was a very abnormal temperature day for early January so we decided to go play outside. I put Owen in the swing for a little bit and then we walked out to our frozen pond and let the kids run around. It was so great to be outside and feeling the sunshine on our faces.
Then we went back inside for early lunch and early nap times due to an afternoon birthday party.
We got the boys up and headed to Alena’s 2nd birthday party at the Centre. We started in the bounce house. Owen went right in but Liam wasn’t too sure. Eventually he came around and the kids (and maybe the parent’s too) had a blast jumping and wrestling.
After a fun time jumping we moved to a new party room for pizza and cake. Alena is so sweet.
Then it was time to head home and relax the rest of the evening because we were all exhausted! Both boys ended up going to bed before 7pm because they were so tired.
I got up with both boys while Joe got a little extra sleep. We snuggled on the couch until Owen decided it was time to play (which was shortly after the snuggles).
When Joe got up Liam wanted to use the cordless vacuum to clean a little so he did that and then he wanted a fake tattoo and I needed to have one too. He wanted us to match but my tattoo needed to go on my muscle (according to him).
Then we got ready and headed to church. It was a great service and both boys actually wanted to play in the nursery this time so that was great too.
After church it was nap time for the boys and time for me to get some cleaning done. I didn’t actually get as much done as I wanted but I got the remaining Christmas items put away and some small things cleaned up.
Joe went hunting before Liam woke up from nap and just as Owen was waking up. Owen got some one on one play time before Liam woke up which he enjoyed.
When both boys were up we had snacks and waited for Joe to get home.
Once Joe was home we had a bubble party in the toy room, dinner, and then an evening of playing “chase” (where we run around the couch) and ring-around-the-rosie.
We had a great first weekend of the New Year. I hope you have a wonderful week ahead!
