Seth has off every other Friday and this past Friday just happened to be his Friday off. I can take pretty much any day off that I want (within reason) and so I decided to take Friday off as well. After we dropped Mason off at school, we decided to go out to breakfast at one of our very favorite breakfast places, The Original Pancake House. Seriously, I LOVE this place. I got my very favorite item there, the bacon waffle, and finished every last piece.
Seth and I ran tons of errands during the day and then picked Mason up at 4pm. I had made an appointment for him to get his hair cut at 5pm, so we headed straight to the hair cutting place as soon as we picked him up. He was so excited to see the lady who cuts his hair. She had him pick out a movie and he headed straight to a big boy chair. Say what?? BIG BOY CHAIR? Normally he sits in the train or the car but this time, he went straight for the regular chair. All he needed was a little booster seat and he was good to go. Someone please tell me when he became old enough for this as I go cry a little in the corner. #timeslowdown
The stud got his hair cut and got a lolli pop for the road and we were on our way home to have dinner.
Saturday morning we were back to our normal routine. Seth and I dropped Mason off at his ABA school and were off to run some more errands. I feel like all we did was errands all weekend but I guess that's what happens when you lose a weekend to working.
We picked Mason up later in the afternoon, he refused to nap, and we decided to go have a picnic by the airport. We stopped by Chick-fil-a on our way and then headed to our secret spot close to the airport to watch the planes come in. We're not totally close enough to actually see the planes land, but they make their final descent RIGHT next to where we are and Mason always gets SO excited when they fly by.
Sunday morning we had a lazy morning, quickly followed up by heading to the grocery store for food for the week. We came back home quickly, had a small lunch, and then were off for a playdate with Desiree and Erin and families! This was our first playdate as a party of 3, including the kids AND the husbands! Seth had met Scott before, but neither one of us had met Mike. It was funny because I told Seth in the car that I would totally recognize Mike if I saw him, though I'd never met him, and when we all got together, Erin said the same thing about Seth! #bloggerproblems
Monday morning came too quickly. Mason and I stopped by the post office as a part of our Monday morning routine and then we were off to school and work. The day went by pretty quickly and before I knew it, we were all back home getting ready to head to the Angels game.
The Angels were playing the Royals and we had made plans to go to the game with Desiree and her family. They are huge Kansas City Royals fans and we're huge Angels fans and since they were playing each other in an attainable location (Angels stadium is obviously a lot closer than Kansas City), we had made plans to go together. Unfortunately, her kids came down with a sickness that morning and they weren't able to go after all. We ended up going anyway, but we missed them terribly!
We learned the hard way the last time we went to the Angels game that Mason LOVES hot dogs. He ate his hot dog and then grabbed my hot dog (literally out of my hands) and ate it too. So we knew we would need to get the kid two hot dogs of his own this time. He not only ate both hot dogs, but ate some pretzels, some carrots, and pretty much this whole ice cream cone. Seth and I were able to sneak in a couple licks, but barely without getting yelled at!
Overall, Mason had an great time at the game! He ate tons, he got to see various home runs (and he clapped and jumped up and down in excitement) and even got to see some fireworks. We don't normally go to games on weeknights since they start at 7:05pm and Mason's bed time is 8pm, but this game was special and we made an exception. We did end up leaving around 8:30pm though and finished watching the game at home on TV.
Last weekend was a good one and left me hoping that next weekend would come just a little sooner! Happy Wednesday!
