FINALLY: a real spring weekend!
We saw temps *almost* hit 60 yesterday, and it was pure heaven. (I mean, in a still-kinda-chilly way…it’s a beggars v. choosers thing right now.)
I kicked off the weekend with a fresh (much needed) cut & color. I tried to take a picture of it in the car afterwards, but I ended up just looking creepy…and you can’t even see the color that well…
You’ll have to take my word for it I guess.
That afternoon, while Mason was napping, I headed to a coffee shop to work on some freelance writing stuff. That’s where I learned what a coffee frappe was (blended coffee with milk)–and also that I like them, a lot.
It was still in the 30’s to low-40’s that day, but crazy sunny, so the park was the only place for our cabin fevered kid.
All of a sudden, he’s comfortable going down the big slide by himself. When did that happen?
That nasty yellow stuff on the ground behind him is what we Midwesterners call “progress.”
Next, Brent got a random itch to do some bowling (he’s trying to break his goal of 200), so we walked the quarter mile or so over to the bowling alley.
Mason was really confused about why he couldn’t pick the balls up.
An unexpected highlight of the trip: watching the racecar promo reel in the arcade, over and over.
Kid LOVES his cars.
Saturday night, we watched my alma mater make it to the Final Four. (Go Badgers!! But my brackets are a MESS!)
Sunday morning started with church, then I headed downtown during Mason’s nap to meet up with my friend Kyla for lunch.
We both got the same ginormous salads from Cosi. Just look at this beauty:
And a raspberry mojito lemonade on the side! I wish I could do that whole meal over right now.
Afterwards, we strolled down State Street (aka my old college stomping grounds), window shopping and talking about how young all the college kids looked. Seriously, you should have heard some of the Old Lady Talk coming out of my mouth. Along the lines of “can you believe what kids are wearing right now? The high-waisted shorts and mega-cropped flowy tops and dresses from the 1800’s?”
I’m mortified just thinking about how I sounded to those kids. Haha.
As soon as I got home, it was time to turn around for another adventure: the zoo!
We met up with some friends whose son is right around Mason’s age (and they’re expecting #2 shortly before us!).
The boys loooved it. Mason was literally running laps around exhibits, totally crazed by sun and warmth.
Huge perk of spring: I can FINALLY take decent pictures with my phone again! Oh natural light, I love you.
We had to drag him out of there literally kicking and screaming when they closed at 5. Can’t blame him.
I’m not sure who slept the hardest in our house last night. I haven’t been that active on a weekend in–geez–MONTHS.
Does anyone else feel 90 around college kids?
What’s something you did over the weekend?
Favorite coffee beverage?
Have a great week!
P.S. I’m linking up with Katie for MIMM!
P.P.S. The new blog design is officially DONE and ready for its big reveal this week…!
