Zach was gone most of the weekend for All-Region, so the kids and I had a lot of alone time. I picked them up Friday from school and told Ava we could have Chick-fil-a or pancakes for dinner. She chose pancakes!
We had a quiet evening Friday night. Ava and I hung out on the couch watching movies until it was time for her to go to bed. Zach got home around 9:30 and I crashed shortly thereafter. I was exhausted.
We got some lovely looks from a “perfect mom” – you know, the kind whose kids are angels ALL the time. Yeah, that one. Her poor kid looked like she would rather be with us b/c our kids were obviously having more fun! ha!
It was a really nice weekend weather wise and I told Ava if she took a nap, we would go to the park after. She and Reed had so much fun running around and climbing! Reed thought he was as big as Ava and could do all she did!
Ava had wanted to take her bike to the park but I talked her out of it. She asked again to ride on our way home, so we got out of the car, loaded up the bike stroller and took off! She went the entire way around our block, which is quite long! I was proud of her!
Saturday night after the kids were settled, Zach and I watched Trouble with the Curve. It was a good movie…. until about 20 minutes from the end when the DVD stopped playing. Ugh! Thanks, netflix! I didn’t want to miss the ending b/c it stopped working right before the climax so we will have to finish when the replacement disk arrives!
We went to early morning church and after we got home, we had work to do. Zach headed to the grocery store with the kids while I started some major deep cleaning. I worked most of the day and managed to get three rooms done. Sadly, they were the smallest and easiest and there are too many too go, but at least I’ve started.
Zach and Ava get the day off tomorrow. I’m so jealous. I’d love another three day weekend, but all in time I guess. Zach has another busy week and I have several things I need to get done at work, so hopefully we’ll have a good week! I know it will be the weekend again before we know it! have a lovely week!
