Weekending.

Wednesday, April 27, 2016

So, well, I know it's Wednesday and we're already halfway to the next weekend, but why not do a little weekend recap, shall we? I FINALLY had a weekend free of traveling and free of work and let me tell you, it was a good one! Let's start on Friday.

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!

  1. What an awesome weekend! I love that you got together with Erin and Desiree's families. So fun. Bummer Desiree's fam had to miss the game, but it looks like you guys had a blast. That ice cream looks so good.

  4. The hair, the playdate, the baseball food! Great weekend. Too bad Desiree and her family had to miss the game with you.

  5. Haha, we all "know" the families through the blogs but that's so fun to actually get together! I feel that way sometimes with FB friends of people I'm not super close with anyway. I sometimes feel like I know too much about their daily life for not talking ;)

  6. Sounds like a fun weekend to me! I love the airplane watching spot! The Angels really killed the Royals this series, waah.

  7. So neat that he gets every other Friday off and that you are able to take off randomly too. That’s awesome! Nate is off every Friday (works 4-10 hour days), but always goes in for over-time on Friday. He goes in super early though and comes home around 10am-12pm. I love it since I work at home!! Anyhow, yay for time together. Mason’s haircut looks so cute! And doesn’t it just break your mama-heart when you catch little glimpses of him growing up? So bittersweet! So could that you were all able to get together. This community is awesome. Looks like you guys had a super amazing weekend. PS – I went to the post office this morning (for the first time in forever) and it made me think about you guys!

  10. Your weekend wins!!!
    It was so fun hanging with everyone! We need more family get togethers like that. Everyone got along so well, and the kids seemed to have a blast together.
    I'm still bummed about missing that game - the tickets are still sitting right here on my computer desk, staring at me as I type this. We're totally making a weekend game together.

  13. Jeff gets every other Friday off at this base. I'm going to miss that SO much when we move. It's fabulous to have a week day with him off. When we get to CA yall can come visit the base and Mason can see the stealth planes!
