Milkshakes, Playing Outdoors, Packing, and my feelings on March: Our Weekend

Hope everyone had a great weekend!  We had a pretty busy weekend and luckily were able to get a lot done packing-wise.  
Friday afternoon it was in the 40's. You know what 40's mean-busting out jackets and getting ourselves outside!

Layla was not impressed

They could seriously do this for hours.  Not sure what is so magical about those little cars but they sure do love them!

Brian was flying all day Friday (5am-8pm) so the kids and I had a movie and pizza picnic night. 

And we may have picked up shamrock shakes too. Such a good day for my diet.

Saturday morning the kids woke up bright and early and we had a ton to do so I threw let them outside to run some energy off. It was another nice day so they had some fun enjoying our backyard.

We've taken all of the pictures off the wall (sniff, sniff!) and have a lot packed up.

I went through the pantry and the fridge to make a "let's eat what we have" menu. Shucks we have a lot of muffin and cookie mixes, guess I better do some baking.

And this was me being creative. Peanut butter cookie mix with some leftover M&M's. Call me Martha Stewart.

Naptime came and as I was moving things from our bedroom to the garage I heard some commotion in Brady's room. He doesn't really nap all that much anymore but I expect him to be quiet until I come get him. I peeked in and caught this little nudist dude standing in his window butt naked. I happened to have the camera around my neck (taking pictures of our household goods) so I snapped some pictures because I didn't think Brian would believe me.  He's (Brady, not Brian) recently learned how to completely undress and dress himself so I think he was practicing that and got distracted by our neighbors doing yardwork out front.

Yeah bud, caught you. So neighbors, I apologize if you saw a naked little boy in our window. We had a niiice long talk about it.  

Then this little gal woke up and demanded we have a dance party.

And eat crackers and have a staredown. She won.

And then there's this guy. Can I just say now how loong of a month March is?  That mustache just makes him look like such a creeper.  Between him and the naked child in our window it's a wonder no one's called CPS.

Saturday night my friend Jessica and I got together to plan our roadtrip to Montgomery. 15 Hours. Yikes.

Sunday was another beautiful day. It got to 74!!  Annie and I went on a walk through the neighborhood. We almost got blown with the crazy winds but that's beside the point. 

We got a lot more done around the house so after naptime we took the kids to a local park.  We played on the playground for awhile and then walked over to the pinewood derby course.

Layla crossing the finish line!

And then we took the kids out for ice cream cones. I think Layla had forgotten what a cone was all about because she was beside herself excited.

So was Brady.

And then there was this guy who keeps tagging along. Why does he keep following us??? ;)

Have a great week! :)

I always love trying to be creative with what is left in the pantry, oh the joys of moving! haha.

I offered my husband tuna sandwiches for dinner for two weeks trying to use up the 10 cans we had somehow accumulated in the pantry before our last move!

Becky Dougherty said...

Haha! This post made me laugh! :) Glad you had a nice weekend!

Jenn said...

Haha! The mustache!!! Love the creeper look he was giving you. Girl, you're hilarious. And God bless you on the 15 hour road trip. Sending up so many prayers of plentiful juice boxes, long naps, and endless cheezits. Amen.

You were busy this weekend!! I love the "heart sticker" you put over Brady's butt. That made me laugh!

Shamrock shakes, peanut butter cookies with M&Ms, and ice cream cones? Girlfriend, you are making me hungry! And now I am seriously craving some cookies!

Janelle Vannice said...

Your weekend sounds fun! I wish it would warm up here so we could have some ice cream cones! ;) And Brady naked in the window.... hahahahaha! That sounds like something I would have done.

I just laughed out loud at the CPS comment which led me to another coughing attack and cullen came downstairs to make sure i was okay haha.

Jamie said...

I would be all over that cake :)
