Weekend Recap

We enjoyed a low key, relaxed weekend. It was our last weekend for awhile that we had completely open. We have a couple of little things planned for the upcoming weekends, and then we have some visitors (Greg's parents, followed by my friend, Brandi) coming in March, so we're very excited about that. It was sunny and not too cold, so we tried to take advantage with some outdoor time this weekend.

Greg was supposed to have Friday off, but ended up working a half day. I still consider our weekend starting on Thursday when he got off. The weather was gorgeous, so we took the boys in the back yard to push them on the swings. It was the first time we got to use our new patio. I'm so glad to have it done, I think we're going to get a lot of use out of it. Next on our project list is getting a fence, which we hope to have in the next couple of weeks.

So cute!

The boys love swinging!

A look at our new patio under the deck. They tore up our yard while laying the concrete, so that's why there's straw everywhere. I can't wait to get some toys and furniture to put on it so it doesn't look so bare. Greg also has some plans to paint some of the deck, so I'm excited for that.

After pushing the boys on the swings, we took them for a quick walk around the neighborhood in the wagon. They really seemed to enjoy getting outside.

Friday, we got caught up on some stuff around the house.It ended up looking like it could rain in the afternoon, so we went by the mall and let the boys burn off some energy in the play area and then ran a few errands. That night we rented Paranormal Activity 3, which I really enjoyed. We haven't been to the movie theater in forever, so there's a lot of movies out on DVD that we want to see.

The boys are definitely best buds now. They are totally monkey see, monkey do--to the extreme! I love it when I catch them sitting next to each other or playing really nice together. Melts my heart.

Saturday, Greg got a door from Lowes and installed it. We had a cat door installed in one of our doors and we needed to replace it. I ran to Target during the boys nap and did a little shopping. We went to the gym, played with the boys and then watched "Contagion" after the boys went to bed. Contagion was super scary and totally freaked me out.

This was the only picture I took Saturday.

Sunday, we slept late and then took the boys to the park followed by lunch at Taco Bell. We haven't been to this park in a long time and it's been awhile since Greg's been to the park with the boys, so it was fun to see what all they could do now. They seem to be so much older now than they were in the fall when we brought them here. I'm so glad the weather was nice enough to get outside. It was a little chilly, but clear and sunny, so we just bundled up and had a great time.

We bundled the boys up in fleece lined jeans and hoodies.

This picture of Carter cracks me up. They worked up an appetite at the park, we had to give them Cheerios until the food came, they were hungry!
