Last weekend- what a great long weekend of celebrations! I felt like we went from full-on school mode to summer time & relax mode in a matter seconds. And I’m not complaining! And it took me until today to actually get it together. But here it is– our Memorial Day Weekend Wrap Up.
Matt’s last day of school with students was on Thursday, but Friday was still a workday for him. So Friday night was still a relief that the weekend was here! We took a family trip to Home Depot to do one more trip researching floors. We have decided to go with engineered bamboo floors for our living room and kitchen areas. Matt is planning on starting next weekend- ripping up carpets, removing the moulding, and laying down new floors! A few weeks away from my due date…. it’s fine, we will be fine. I won’t have a baby in a construction zone.
Rain was being called for later on Saturday, so we took advantage of the nice weather in the morning and took a hike! We went back to Raven Run and did a family hike with some friends. It was nice to get out and see Jude interacting with other kids- it’s so much fun to see!
After lunch and a long hike, Jude was ready to be sleep! He was awake the whole 25 minute ride home reading his Winnie the Pooh book. Then he hit the hay around 2pm and slept two hours! Little guy was tired. AND SO WAS I. I took a little snooze too and it felt good. But man alive, that hike wore me out to pieces.
Sunday morning we met one of my old coworkers and her family at North Lime Coffee & Donuts — if you are local you NEED to go there. Delicious at any time of day. She moved to Louisville a little over a year ago, and so now her little girl is over one and her and Jude played and talked while we ate donuts and talked. Then we rounded out our visit with a trip to a nearby park.
SARAH- how in the world did we not get any photos of us together, let alone our sweet kiddos?! We need to get better at this. Just let it be known, we had a good time catching up.
That afternoon I was still feeling the effects of our hike the day before, and when Jude went for a nap around noon, so did I. I slept for TWO HOURS folks, and Jude went a little longer. Thanks to the hubs for getting stuff done around the house while I snoozed.
Church rounded out our Sunday, with a late dinner afterward of crockpot chicken tacos. They were delicious and I slammed two of those bad boys before we put Jude to bed and snuggled up on the couch to watch the newest James Bond film, Spectre. We are James Bond fans, but this was the first one that didn’t really impress us. We felt like there could have been a little more build up between Bond and his nemesis, but whatever. I guess they can’t all hit it out of the park.
Our city pools are wonderful and opened up this past weekend. We bought passes and visited the one that’s really close to our house right when it opened at 10am. It was delightful! Jude was a little hesitant at first, which surprised me, but once he warmed up to the idea he was all about it. The pool we go to has a huge kid area with shallow water, but also a beach-access area in the big pool, so Jude could easily walk and splash in that spot too. I can’t wait for more family pool outings!
I guess we better get those in before this next little guy comes at the end of the month! Matt and Jude left me at the pool to relax for an extra 20 minutes or so while they swung by chick-fil-a and grabbed some lunch. Then we took it back to our house to eat and put Jude for his nap. Sweet guy slept for 2 1/2 hours! I think the pool really did him in. Then we finished up things around the house- mowing the lawn, prepping our living room for installing new bamboo floors, dishes, laundry– you know, grown up stuff.
We had a cookout planned, but Jude woke up so late from his nap and wasn’t really feeling another outing, so we stayed in… BUT we are rescheduling our cookout with those friends soon.
Tuesday was our 8th year wedding anniversary! It’s going to need a post all on it’s own- but just know we had a great little trip and had a blast as a family. Really, it was a perfect day from start to finish.
