Looks like Tuesday is the new Monday! Jerry has been traveling for work and I’m just keeping my head above water at this point, so I ask for a little leeway. It actually hasn’t been tooo bad. He was home on Saturday before taking off again (he’s in Palm Springs…can we get a collective Whhhaaaaaa) and comes home tonight. We all miss Daddy at our house!
So let’s jump in with some pictures from last week since I flaked and forgot to post those. There were some pretty cute ones and I’m sure you don’t want to miss them!
The warm weather returned and that meant story time outside! The only thing that makes books better is reading them out in the fresh air!
My little Sunshine. She’s a fan of the playground, clearly.
Ball. Ball. Ball. Ball. Ba...you get it. He’s a fan of balls, clearly.
Fynnlee is too. We’re going through a big bouncy ball phase at the moment.
Throwing or riding. They don’t care.
Other fun included felt stars.
Sitting on top of the climber.
And making some art.
And as Easter is right around the corner, no better time for plastic grass! This is at the beginning of playtime…you should have seen the aftermath.
Fynnlee is absent from the picture above because she spiked a fever on Thursday and spent the day at Grandmas. She spent the day cuddling and napping and was fine the next day. Three cheers for quick recoveries. And for Grandmas (and Grandpas)!
Jerry came home from Trip #1 on Friday night and it was so nice out, we decided to take the kids to the playground.
Followed by a walk around the neighborhood.
The holding hands…I can’t.
Of course we have sibling squabbles, but oh my goodness…I love that they are best buds. And I love matching PJs. They will be doing this till they move out of our house. When they’re 30.
Jerry let me sleep in on Saturday and go to morning yoga (best husband award, right there). Mama needs a pedi, stat.
He took the kids to Grandma & Papa’s while I was getting my Zen on. And when he got home, we noticed the kids eyes were all gross and goopy. Greyson has trouble with his right eye watering a lot and it often gets gunky when he has a cold. Well gunky doesn’t begin to describe it…it was funk-y. So I called the doctor and got them both in at 10:45.
No pinkeye, just a symptom of their colds. We left with a prescription for warm compresses, nose wiping and lots of hand washing. They don’t have their 2 year checkups until 5/13 but Fynnlee weighed in at 29.15 and Greyson at 27.10. Why am I worried about what they’re eating???
It was a beautiful day so we grabbed some DiBella’s and decided to hit North Park. We found the most perfect little playground, tucked away from the main area and it was empty! (For you locals, it’s by the cannon, across from the gas station/ice cream shop. There is an entrance to North Park Mansions there too). The kids ran around and played for a good 2 hours.
Not to worry…we emptied out the soda from these cups and filled them with water.
Wawa is better through a straw!
The rest of Saturday was filled with long nap, grocery shopping, buffalo chicken chili and catching up on the DVR.
Jerry had to catch a flight bright and early on Sunday so we were up at 3:45. I never really fell back to sleep because I know the kids wake up early…so I hopped out of bed at 4:15, made some coffee and watched the news. That relaxation lasted until 4:35 when Fynn woke up and Greyson was up around 4:45 #sleepwhenyouredead.
I knew I was going to have some cranky babes at swim class if I didn’t let them catch a quick snooze. So we left an hour early and I drove through Starbucks while they caught a 45 minute car nap. It worked like a charm and we had happy babes when we got to Goldfish.
Papa volunteered to help out this week and Jarrad may have lost his swim coach job forever.
That blur you see is her jumping into the water, which she did 800 times. No fear in that child!
Swim class was a success and I headed home with the kids for lunch and a nap. It was a beautiful morning and we spent the rest of it hanging out on the deck.
We are all happy Spring is here!
The kids took a killer nap and I finally fixed my toes, while watching The Challenge.
After naptime, I dropped the kids off at Grandma & Papa’s, went to Costco and then joined them for dinner. Greyson’s eyes were getting worse and so was his mood. So after an amazing dinner of chicken, sausage and tortellini (which Fynnlee actually ate…food always tastes better at Grandma’s), we went home & wrapped up the weekend.
Jerry comes home tonight and we’re so excited to see him! Hope you have a fabulous week!
