Oh hi! How was your weekend?
Ours was pretty killer.
(Mason advertising for Food Should Taste Good, aka “Chip! Chip!”)
I was totally going to blog on Friday (let the record show it), but we ended up not having working WiFi at the hotel we stayed at over the weekend.
It was a blessing in disguise…I was forced to sit on the balcony and read instead.
But let me back up: Thursday night, we took the kiddo to his first fireworks show.
He looooved it–and was deeply confused about why he was awake so late. (He ran around with a mischievous “I think I’m getting away with something” face.)
The show didn’t start until 9:30 PM, so we decided to put him down at his usual time and then wake him up an hour and a half later. This ended up working like a charm–we carried him straight from bed to stroller and headed down the block to our little neighborhood park, where we had a pretty good view of the nearby fireworks.
The next day, we packed up the car and headed to a waterpark resort a few hours away for a little 2-night getaway. I’d originally wanted to rent a cabin and do the whole rustic thing (short of ACTUAL tent camping, which we’re kind of terrified of with a 2-year-old), but hotel rooms were the only options left when we booked.
The weather was ok–not as hot as I was hoping (I need 80+ for waterparks) but it didn’t rain either.
This guy didn’t seem to care as long as there were shovels and buckets involved.
The resort also had a large indoor waterpark, which is where we ended up spending most of our time.
We were suuuper bummed to find out that we weren’t allowed to take Mase down waterslides (which we did at the waterpark we went to a few months ago and he went nuts for it). Even the smaller slides were for single riders only, and kids had to be at least 42 inches tall.
Ugh! The resort definitely lost some huge points from us on that.
Other than that, it was a nice, relaxing trip.
(Loving the awkward selfie arm reflected in my sunglasses, haha.)
Mase picked up the phrase “oh goodness” and it was cracking me up all weekend. At one point, he decided to poop in the swim diaper I’d just put on him (backwards, apparently–my bad)…let’s just say the hotel floor took the fall for my mistake. And so did Mase’s feet, went he went running through it. Then, as we were frantically cleaning the whole mess up (Brent freaking out/me laughing hysterically), he just kept saying, “ohhh, goodness. Ohhh, goodness. Ohhh goodness.”
Dear hotel room maid: I’m really, really sorry.
We spent the evenings in the hotel room watching our newest TV series pick, Orange is the New Black. I think we’re hooked!
The trip ended Sunday morning with a stop at Perkins on the way out of town. Banana french toast for this girl, and OJ for Mase (we could NOT convince him that he didn’t have to tip the cup up when drinking out of a straw…result: OJ shorts).
Exhausting weekend–but so much fun!
How was your weekend?
US-ers, how did you celebrate the 4th?
