My Weekend Recap
Surprise 40th birthday party for my brother in law. It was a happy celebration. However, eating a veggie burger at a BBQ joint was a slight bummer. We made up for it with ice cream cake.
I actually had time to clean my house. I mean really clean, not just tidy up. First, I took my son out for a walk. I have to tell you all that I love my go-to, no-fail nap trick! It works every time. Bonus: I get to have a great workout. I "wear" him while I walk so I have a 20 lb "weighted" walk. We bond. He falls asleep. I get a great workout + fresh air + sunshine. Win-win. After our walk I asked my husband to lie down beside him since he naps much longer that way. I wasn't too surprised to find that hubby ended up napping also. I should have taken a photo. As they napped I had a full 2 hours of uninterrupted cleaning time.Yay! The Shocker: I want to do more!
Church with my 2 guys. We are there every Sunday but this was our son's first Palm Sunday Mass. To see him raise his palm frond along with the entire congregation was heartwarming. He blew flying kisses to the people near us during the Rite of Peace - they couldn't help but come up to him. He kept waving to them after. He is such a charmer. Just like his daddy.
Later...off to a spa day with my 2 sister in laws (hubby's side). We had massages in the afternoon followed by lunch with the whole family. While the mommies were "spa-ing" the daddies had all 6 boys! No injuries. Woo-hoo. Imagine that: 6 (very active) boys with 3 dads in charge. 3 boys still in diapers...
Your turn! What did you all do this weekend?
