I can hardly believe it, but we actually had a weekend where nobody was sick and we were all able to ENJOY ourselves. It’s a miraclllllle!
And Sunday’s weather was absolutely gorgeous, so we opened up a couple of windows to get some fresh air circulating through, and we got outside to play. It was incredible.
Our front yard has a small hill that’s pretty much perfect for Lucas so sled down, so he had a grand ol’ time doing that a hundred times.
Which was a-okay by me…get him nice and tired out for a nap. ; )
This little guy was content to just be out in his sled and getting some fresh air. I’m pretty sure I can count on one hand how many times he’s been outside since this past summer.
It was so nice, we even went for a walk…it was actually the first one without him being in his carseat, and he loved it!
Oh, and umm, those shades?? <3
I also ended up making two batches of cookies this weekend and Lucas was the best helper – I loved having him in the kitchen with me!
We made some cut-out sugar cookies (which we were going to do for Valentine’s day but ended up holding off since the whole sickness thing) and then I also made a batch of Heath Bar Crunch Cookie Bars (which ended up cooking a little longer than they should have…).
The cookie bars were actually to bring over to our neighbors’ house for a little get-together on Sunday evening. Can I just say how awesome it is to have such great neighbors?!?
We had snacks, and some of our favorite pizza…
And they also had this alcoholic root beer which was INSANELY delicious. Have any of you tried it before?
Apparently they also make a cream soda so I need to get my hands on that ASAP!
Overall, it was just a really great weekend. I managed to get not one, but TWO workouts in, I got grocery shopping done, the sun was shining, the kids were (fairly) well behaved…it was just the first weekend in a while where everyone was in good spirits. And I swear, the nicer weather had a HUGE impact on my mood…I’m just meant to be in a warm climate!
I hope all of you had a great weekend and have a wonderful week ahead! I’m off work today with the boys for the holiday so who knows what our day will bring. <3
