Weekend Wrap Up

I had this weekend off and Mike had to work. Every other weekend one of us works and the other has off to watch the boys – that is just how it goes! I try to get Sunday off so we at least have one day off together during the week.

Despite the fact Mike had to work, we had a great weekend! I worked in the garden, the boys and I made handmade sidewalk chalk (I’ll be sharing later in the week!), I got some Easter crafts done, and we got out in the sun at a local air show. I’ve been saving the least fun activities for tonight – I have a midterm in my Journalism class and I have to write my own obituary!?!? I think I’ll die a happy old woman whose life was filled with family. Cause of death? I’m not sure yet.

Wyatt was absolutely thrilled when he got to sit in the helicopter at the air show.

Moments like these just melt my heart. Brothers embracing in a hug. I hope they will always hug tight like this and be best friends.

We couldn’t have asked for a more beautiful day. It was in the high eighties with a breeze. I will admit I forgot all about sunscreen since we haven’t had to use it yet this year, and we all have red cheeks.

Mason was hot and tired by the end of the afternoon. As soon as we got in the car he was out like a light.

Wyatt had so much fun making sidewalk chalk. This was a great project for him – there were no fears of a big mess – everything was washable and we were outside.

Easter decorations are out! One month until the bunny comes!

My tomato plants are flowering! That means we will have some tomatoes very soon.

OUR MENU THIS WEEK-

If you are like me, you hate going to the grocery store. I try to make one trip a week by planning a weeks worth of meals in advance. Not only does it keep me out of the grocery store, it keeps me from buying a bunch of stuff I don’t need.

  • Monday – Chicken Pot Pie
  • Tuesday – Taco Salad
  • Wednesday – Brats with potato and pasta salads
  • Thursday - Lasagna
  • Friday – Chicken Gyros
  • Saturday  - Cheeseburger Pie
  • Sunday – Eating out for Sister-in-laws Birthday Dinner

Enjoy – I hope everyone had a great weekend!
