Weekend Snapshots 2

Another Monday!  We had a pretty great weekend over here.  Last week it was pretty rainy here in Missouri so I was thrilled that the sun was shining all weekend long.  I am totally digging these family-filled weekends and when it’s beautiful weather it’s an added bonus.


Saturday we got up and headed to the gym as a family.  One of the gyms we frequent doesn’t have child care but does have “kids in sight” with a special room for exercising parents.  The girls played while Chris and I broke a sweat!  We hit the grocery store on our way home and officially knocked out the chores for the day.  Bryn decided she was too cool for school and lounged on my bed wearing my shades.




Chris and I had a date night lined up to try out our new babysitter.  We headed a bit out of town to Public House Brewing Company to try out their craft beer before heading to dinner.  It was SUCH a fun place!  The weather was perfect for a beer flight outside and some corn hole.  They also had bocci ball and a giant chess set.  I foresee many more trips out there this summer.  We headed to a local restaurant after and it was absolutely delicious with probably the best spinach artichoke dip we’ve ever had.

Sunday morning was beautiful and called for coffee on our back deck.  We have a wooded area behind our house and I really love the peacefulness of the greenery.  One of the benefits for living in the middle of the woods I guess!  We packed up and headed to church mid-morning and I am happy to say that both girls were wonderful.  It’s been a change not having a nursery but the girls are adapting nicely!

The rest of the day was spent gearing up for another week!  I am starting to do a little homeschooling at night for Emmalyne until she starts a private school this fall.  I got our notebook ready for the week and she is pretty pumped for her “homework”.  We also spent awhile at the park where Bryn attempted to give me no less than 1000 heart attacks.  She’s quite the tiny ninja!


Before signing off for the day I had to share Emmie’s “friends” with you.  Em came and got me after her quiet time and said she had to show me something.  She preceded to tell me how she tucked all of her friends in for THEIR nap.  I can’t get enough of this kid!

I hope you have a fabulous start to the week and that your weekend was enjoyable.  What was one thing you did this weekend?
