When everyone has Monday off, the weekend is just that much brighter. We consumed ourselves with family, cooking out, pushing back bed times, the zoo, and a little DQ to top the final day off. It was a fantastic weekend. Now our sweet boys are lounging on the couch, feeling the aftermath of being completely thrown out of their routine, but I don’t think anyone is complaining!
Brody’s “smile” when he is asked to take a picture lately, is hysterical. It makes my face hurt watching him give the biggest grin possible. And Owen, well, this 2 year old will turn any object into a completely new toy. Corn hole and a slide all in one!
Dan and I actually found a moment to snap a picture of ourselves. In between Owen having a complete meltdown at Dan’s parent’s house for a few hours. I think we were both ready to have a meltdown as well. Oh, the joys of parenting.
Their love for meerkats is growing a little stranger by the day. First it kicked off with them picking out a meerkat birthday card for their GiGi (my mom) for her birthday. Nothing like opening up what you expect to be a sweet poem filled card and all you see is meerkats staring back at you. Once they saw these two holes to stick their faces in, there was no stopping them.
They sat and watched the lions while they ate lunch, and I tried my best not to have a panic attack. Mind you, the ledge they are sitting on is no more than a foot or two off the ground, and it is the first of many barriers from the lions. However, in my twisted fearful mothers mind, I pictured the lions smelling their chicken nuggets and bolting it over all the barriers to consume my children for lunch. Dan laughed. And had to tell me multiple times to chill out. So I did, thankful now, because this picture is too cute.
Oh well! A lovely few days of fun with my family. This week we are cooking up a few new recipes that we’ll be sharing with you (if they turn out of course). But, most of our time will be dedicated to setting up for our open house this weekend. Whoop Whoop! SO excited!
