Usually our weekends involve a Friday of hanging out with the kids, then we spend Saturday or Sunday out with friends or family. This time, we somehow managed to make plans for the whole thing.
It began with a simple invitation to go see a bike race. It was Friday night and we figured it wouldn’t hurt to let the boys have a bit of fun.
The boys almost immediately grew bored with the bike race, especially once they spotted a toy store nearby.
We had a bit of dinner, then hung out around the square a bit longer.
The next day we spent the morning picking up groceries and hanging around the house, which usually means the boys do at least a few amusing things. This one came at the end of our morning routine. We were in the master bathroom and Christy was drying her hair while I brushed my teeth. We heard a noise coming from the bedroom so I went to investigate.
After naptime, we came to day two of our out-of-the-house plans, which involved driving out to see some old friends.
We hung out some more, had some pizza, then got the kids home and in bed far too late for their own good. When we awoke, the cycle began anew.
We came out to celebrate Mimi and Pappaw’s 25th anniversary, which meant arriving a little early to assemble a surprise gift for them. The boys were happy to tag along because it meant they got to spend some time with Tanner.
Tanner explained to me that he built the fort all by himself, and that he was, and I’m quoting here, “A genius!” Well done, I say.
After a while Mimi and Pappaw arrived and we brought everyone back in.
The boys were pretty much all over the place, bouncing between activities faster than we could keep up with them. At one point, I noticed that Owen was in the other room with a toy gun, and was using it as a hammer to demolish some sort of Lego creation. Turns out it was a house Tanner had built, so I gave the appropriate amount of scolding and set about rebuilding things.
We had a meal, hung out for a while, and let the kids do a little more building with Pappaw. He had been diligently constructing things for a while on the floor.
As these things go, we said our goodbyes and loaded the kids back up in the car to get them home for some much needed sleep. The kids probably needed it too.
