Hey friends! It’s a dark, rainy Monday morning over here…literally hailing on my car in the parking lot as we speak…but we had a beautiful, sunny weekend!
I’m linking up with Katie to tell you all about the marvelousness that went down.
This poor guy was still recovering from his virus (going on SIX days), but managed to find plenty of energy to play with his new T-ball set.
His preferred batting technique is the overhead chop:
On Saturday, we headed to a Big Rig Show, aka Mason’s dream. There were tractors, snowplows, garbage trucks, diggers, ride-on lawnmowers, a firetruck, and even a giant SWAT car.
The kids could climb up and sit in the vehicles (and honk the horns…SOO many honking horns…) but the lines were a little insane, so we crossed our fingers that he’d be satisfied with the window peek trick.
Judging by that look: fail.
The most popular vehicle by FAR was the firetruck.
The event planners were mischievous enough to plant a giant kids’ toy garage sale RIGHT NEXT TO the big rig show–real thoughtful of them. We were lucky to get out of there with just a 25 cent matchbox car.
That night, I was treated to an early Mother’s Day gift, courtesy of the husband.
Flowers and DQ blizzards! He got two “so I could pick which flavor I wanted.” Hahaha.
I tried SO hard to get a mother/son pic for Mother’s Day, but thanks to the squirmiest kid alive (and the lack of cute, easily accessible Mother’s Day scenery), this ended up being the best we could do:
That might look like a loving hug, but there was actually a serious amount of muscle involved.
I got to celebrate Mother’s Day with a little shopping and toddler-free running-around-town–aka the most freeing feeling in the world. I finally found the brown crossover purse I’ve been wanting, at Kohl’s–where, by the way, they have a HUGELY unfair ratio of baby girl clothes to boy clothes. Like, we’re talking 5 boy sleepers to every 10 RACKS of girl clothes.
And is it too much to ask for to get a few things that don’t say “little slugger” or some other sports/vehicle-related slogan on them? Just a few. #boymomproblems
My idea of spoiling myself on Mother’s Day is to load up on new reading material.
(via the library)
And something fun…
$5.98 for two novels in one at Barnes & Noble! If I have to think for even a millisecond while reading that, it’s considered a fail. And an awkward pre-romance encounter should happen by about page 15, at the latest.
We ended the day with some take-out Chinese and an episode of House of Cards (our new obsession). Couldn’t be happier with the weekend!
Hope all my fellow mamas had an equally relaxing time–Happy Mother’s Day!
