We had a lovely holiday weekend. The McHusband and I were both home on Friday and Connor spent about half the day at daycare so that we grown-ups could, well, enjoy a vacation day. I made sure not to be too productive and it was just what this working mom needed.
The Y was closed on Saturday so I took Connor and Monte on a walk then did a strength workout in the bonus room before showering, eating lunch, and making a Harris Teeter run with Connor. Later that afternoon, he took a wonderful afternoon nap then we headed to my friend Erika’s house for a Fourth of July party. She made sure there was something for everyone: adult Jenga, both a water AND a sand table for the kids, plus delicious food. We arrived fashionably late thanks to the aforementioned nap so it’s a good thing I brought dessert (those amazing chocolate chip cookies and some brownie-peanut butter bars) and not the appetizers.
Connor didn’t sleep in quite as late as he needed Sunday morning so he took a short nap before we headed to the Mason Jar Tavern to have lunch with Rick, Sabrina, and Owen who were out our way completing a craigslist deal. From there, it was home for naps for the boys and laundry and a movie for me. Just a nice chill afternoon (the theme of the weekend) for me. I had dinner in the crockpot and it was very easy to throw together and it turned out to be a good meal. The meat cooked a little long but the flavor was good.
Hope everyone else also enjoyed the weekend and the holiday. Back to the real world today!
