Another weekend, went by in a flash! Friday was our best day with our fun night at Highballs and Hydrangeas. My hives went away just in time but they came back that night while I was sleeping. I'll be so glad when they go away again. So itchy! Saturday, Evie woke up first and we snuggled on the couch for a bit and then made these Banana Blueberry muffins while the boys slept late. I thought the muffins were delicious and Henry seemed to agree. Evie decided that she does not like blueberries and Carl thought they tasted too healthy because oatmeal was one of the main ingredients. Carl took Evie to run a few errands and included a stop at Krispy Kreme. YUMMY! Henry napped while I did a few things around the house. It's so much easier to get things accomplished with only one child. Not sure, why I ever complained about having one kid because looking back that was so easy. Although, it's so much more fun having two kids, our house is in a constant state of disaster. Evie decided to skip her nap so Carl took her to the pool. They had a blast! Henry and I made homemade pizza for dinner and it turned out much better this time. Evie was exhausted and went to bed super early. She was so tired that she fell asleep sitting up in bed! At 5:00 this morning, I woke up to Evie crying because she had fallen out of the bed. We dozed together for a bit and then decided to start our day started bright and early. Henry slept late again this morning. Two mornings in a row of sleeping until after 8. That's something that I could get used to for sure! We went to Einstein bagels for brunch and then ran in the grocery store quickly. Carl took the kids outside while I did some laundry. Both kids were ready for nap time. Evie rested quietly in her room for about an hour and then popped out dressed like Cinderella. I need to work on adjusting my attitude to her new napping schedule. Nap time is such a blissful time. Too bad, it does not last longer. On the other hand, it's fabulous to have both children tucked in bed and asleep by 7.
Carl worked in the yard and I played with Evie while Henry slept then we all went outside to help Carl. Henry loves to be outside just like Evie. Carl grilled chicken for dinner and then it was bedtime.
That pretty much sums our weekend up, this is our last week of summer vacation before Evie goes back to school. Evie is looking forward to meeting her teacher on Tuesday and so excited that Molly is in her class again this year. I'm not sure that she ever realized that Molly might not be in her class!
I have been married for 10 adventurous and amazing years to the greatest husband ever. I am mommy to a beautiful daughter, Evie and an adorable little boy, Henry. I love quiet time, milk chocolate, fun books, rainy days, glass bottled coke, cooking and all things pink! I loathe cell phones at the table and being late. Follow along with a snippet of our life.
