We had a super low-key weekend. Saturday afternoon, we headed out to Dragon Park, to play and enjoy the gorgeous weather. It was a great surprise to arrive at the park and there was a huge free festival filled with lots of fun things to do. Evie had a blast - pumpkin painting, eating apples, jumping on the bouncy houses, having her face painted and seeing all the dogs. Henry and I enjoyed eating oatmeal chocolate chip cookies that were delicious! That's a perk to living in Music City, there is always tons to do and much of it is free or at least family friendly.
Carl and Evie played lots of soccer because Evie wanted some lessons. It was so funny because Evie uses her own terminlogy for pretty much everything. She kept shouting, "Watch out Daddy, I am going to soccer it over to you." Or, my personal favorite, "Let's go soccering."
We enjoyed lots of time outside, ate some yummy food - pan seared pork tenderloin and chicken corn chowder. Long walks around the neighborhood, lots of time together with a few time-outs sprinkled in for good measure.
I went to an alumi event for my sorority on Sunday night and it was good to see a girl that I went to college with many years ago. It's still hard to believe that I have been out of college for 10 years! I met some new people and enjoyed a night off from Mommy Duty. Some of these women have devoted so much time to the sorority even decades later which I find admirable. Although, I have no idea where they find the time to write hundreds of rec letters, serve as advisers to local chapters or attend conventions.
Weekends are always fun but it's time to catch up on laundry and housework. Hope your week is off to a terrific start.
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.
