Weekending

As with most weekends, this one went by too fast.

We kicked it off right the Husband leaving work early, a rarity, a meeting us over at the pool for a pre-dinner swim.  We came home, chowed down on some chicken fingers (that Ashlynn actually ate!) and then lit a fire in our under used fire pit.  I had done a Target run that morning getting all the necessities - chocolate, marshmallows, and extendable s'mores skewers (similar), we already have a lifetime supply of graham crackers.

Sidenote, I also grabbed the dual Anna and Elsa (and Olaf) toddler doll set and plan on saving it for Santa Claus.  Our store was stocked with Frozen toys!


Anyway, it was Ashlynn's first marshmallow toasting/ s'mores eating experience and while I didn't get any pictures, her joker face of chocolate tells me she had a blast.  That night was pretty rough, with details I won't bore you with, I sent the toddler and husband to swim lessons solo and ate a left over Hershey bar from our s'mores stash for  breakfast.  At some point I did sneak a nap in and to be honest I can't even remember what happened the rest of the day other than getting a hair cut, cooking dinner, and going for a family walk with popsicles in the wagon and that leading to "Elsa hands".  You figure that one out.


Sunday, the Husband played an early round of golf and we got some crazy good naps out of Kenley before heading to my In Laws for dinner.  We took a much needed family picture since we don't have one of all of us since Kenley was born, but of course, none where we were all actually smiling at the camera at the same time.  Then A went to the pool with her dad and Pop Pop and came back for a delicious dinner of grilled salmon and homemade blueberry pie... and lollipops.  Girl always gets herself a tootsie pop at Nany and Pops house.

And back to Monday, here we are...  I'm hoping this week we stay busy and that it flies on by.  Hope everyone had a great weekend!

    Can't believe your target is stocked full of Frozen paraphenelia!!! I looked on Friday and our's didn't have a single item. I was highly annoyed. Guess I'll look online. I think your family picture turned out perfect even if everyone isn't looking at the camera. It has character :) have a fabulous Monday!!

  7. So true, I definitely have a few I like. It's just funny I'm always amazed when people have "perfect" photos with young kids where everyone looks great. They must know how to superimpose images in PS haha

  8. Aw, she'll love them. I probably would have given them to her right away, but with the potty training she got a lot of "little" things and I don't want her getting to being too spoiled ;) Plus her big present is going to see Frozen on Ice so it goes

  9. This was the first time there was a bunch of different options, so far I've only lucked out on finding the rare item here or there. This was great because I've only seen that set of dolls for like $80!!! on amazon.

  13. Sounds like a fabulous weekend! We celebrated Mason's birthday a little early and (like you mentioned below) could not get a picture of Mason and Addison (my niece who's bday we celebrated also) both smiling at the camera to save our lives. Real life right there :) I love that it shows their personalities!
