Saturday morning came early, as M was working, so that meant despite getting home late, I was getting up early with Noah, which we stretched to 8 AM, so it really wasn't too bad!! The weather this weekend was fantastic and most of it was spent outside!!
I got laundry going right away so I could get it out on the line to dry! Noah was acting tired and I think he actually needed a morning nap, which I can see the potential for on the weekend because we are busier, but because I had just implemented this one nap routine, I wanted to stick it out, but later decided that was a bad call!
I distracted him outside with blowing bubbles and playing on the deck
We also took the stroller apart and washed it so it could air dry too! It came out pretty clean, but we will have to stain treat a few areas. While we were in St. Martin we didn't have a high chair and Noah ate in his stroller often, so we have a few little spots to get out, but for the most part it came clean! I also installed the seat protector this weekend too!
Noah ended up having lunch early so he could have a nap earlier... This whole plan backfired huge when he only napped for an hour! Lesson learned, when he needs a nap, he gets one! But it is good to know he can go without the morning nap if we need to!
When M got home from work we were back outside, I cut the lawn while M played with Noah and brought out some more patio furniture! Next thing we knew it was 4:00 and we needed to be at the farm for 4:30 and both still had to shower! We made it to the farm just before 5!
It was Ron's birthday, so we had dinner there and of course we had to take a birthday pic with Grandpa:
Notice anything different? He shaved his moustache!! Noah made strange a bit, but he is also going through that phase now!
We made it home by 9, which Noah was way past his prime since he wouldn't sleep there but we took the scenic route home and he was asleep!
Sunday I was finally able to sleep in! It was amazing too! Yup see why this post is titled amazing weekend?
Sunday we put out junk to the street as it is junk pick up around here and this mama was in purging mood! We moved the play set, which Noah figured out how to climb on! He is such a big boy!! He also learned how to ride and move his firetruck on his own:
No he isn't sweaty, but rather freshly coated in sunscreen because the weather was that nice!
The dogs were bathed, the patio furniture is all out, laundry was done, it was just a productive, yet fun day spent as a family! It was just what we needed!!
We skipped our traditional family meal on Sunday and decided M could pick up pizza!! Noah loved it!! We did too!! After dinner we went out for nice long walk around the village! Noah enjoyed walking Gracie for the first time!! We got back home just in time for our bedtime routine!!
Today we are sticking around home, we went to play group this morning and now Noah is napping!!
