We spent a lot of time outside this past weekend, and it all started on Friday night when we went to get plants for the back porch. I wasn't going to pot anything this year because I was afraid that I would kill it all again. However, we've been outside almost every night, so I decided to go ahead spruce up the space.
We went to a greenhouse down the road and stocked up on flowers, strawberries, and a few plants for the garden. Eric planted his stuff in the garden, and I started working on the back porch before baths and bedtime. After Ellie fell asleep we did the magical summer thing and let Eli chase lightening bugs before bed.
Saturday morning we went to Eli's ball game and then meet Eric's parents for lunch. They were kind enough to drive Eric's new truck back from the dealership which saved us a ton of time and gas money. We grabbed a quick lunch with them at Cheddar's, then I took the kids back home to swim while Eric ran to Home Depot to get some stuff for a project he's doing.
The kids stayed in the pool all day long which more than made up for all the botched plans last year. Ha! We went in the house just in time to eat left overs and do our bedtime ritual. After the kiddos went to sleep, I started tackling my insanely dirty house and the piles of laundry.
Yesterday both kids slept in until 9:00 which was glorious!! We went to church and ate at a new Mexican place for lunch. We rarely eat out with the kids, but it was actually a pleasant experience. After lunch it was another trip to Home Depot, and afternoon of swimming, a trip to the grocery, spaghetti for dinner, and more cleaning.
This is how Eli feels about it being Monday. Ha! It really was a great weekend!
