Weekend Recap

Take me back!  Initially the weekend called for tons of rain, so we made a super long to-do list and planned to finish off a bunch of projects.  Well, turns out there was no rain, and our to-do list didn't see much action.  Instead the days somehow disappeared without us even having a moment to stop & rest.  Regardless, it was a pretty stellar weekend with my boys!



Saturday, I planned a little day date for Liam & I.  We went to the Children's Theater again and saw Amelia Bedelia!  Those were some of my favorite books growing up, so I was pumped for the show.  I knew there would be lots of physical humor, which seemed perfect for Liam too.  I had big plans to read him some of the books this past week, but we never made it the library, womp womp.  So it was all brand new to him, but he was into it!  He snuggled up on my lap for the whole first act, which was simply the best!  I still love that closeness and will be devastated when his growing body barely fits on top of mine anymore.  We snacked on the bag of suckers I brought and took in the silly atmosphere.  During intermission, we popped in the soda fountain for some coconut macaroons!  Really this date was all about some of my favorite things apparently!


The weekend was full of beautiful sunsets, so we made sure to take an evening walk to enjoy the blossoming cherry trees.  I want them to stay in bloom all Spring, but I know their days are limited.  I'm been blowing up the 'gram with a ridiculous amount of cherry tree shots.  And don't even think that I'm done yet!  Can't stop, won't stop!



Sunday we had to make the big decision between skiing or a baseball game...  Baseball (minor leagues: Salt Lake City Bees) won out since the mountains haven't had any new fresh powder.  We were joined by friends, so Liam stayed busy the whole time running around & playing catch.  We also sat in the grass where beer drinking, relaxing, & kid watching is easiest.  Finn was just happy to be outside and scavenged for peanut shells.




 So our to-do list sits for another week.  I'm not sure if it's just the current stage that both boys are in right now, but I really feel like there is not enough time for everything.  Not even close.  I'm having to adjust my priorities and just enjoy where we are and what we can do.

  8. To-do list? Psh. That can wait. Your weekend sounds like it was 110% more fun!
    Amelia Bedelia?! Fan favorite when I was growing up, too. And the snuggles from the oldest little? I can never get enough. It will be a sad, sad day when that all stops (because Julia is not at all for cuddling).
    Baseball and beer, while the kids run out all of their energy? Yes, I'll have that every weekend, please and thank you.

  12. Those trees are gorg! I didn't know they had them in Utah too! I thought only on the East Coast? I saw them at the tail end of their peak in April a couple years ago in Washington DC and they were SO pretty. I'm jealous you get to look at that beauty everyday!

  14. Sounds like a great weekend! I used to love Amelia Bedelia as a kid too, how fun that you two got to see it in person!

  15. Yay for a beautiful weekend!! Amelia Bedelia were some of my favorite books growing up, too. A play sounds fun! I am trying to soak up the last fleeting moments of Mason fitting on my lap. He’s getting so big, but we’re not letting that stop us just yet. I will be devastated when that happens too, Mama. Beautiful photos and those cherry trees just make the prettiest backdrop! I adore the baseball pictures too. Those raglan tops will forever be my favorite. I am wanting to buy one in every color for Mason. Hope your week is off to a great start, friend.

  17. Oh my goodness gracious!!!! That picture of Liam in the ball cap with his hair poking through is just to die! Love it! Those cherry blossoms, your weekend, the fact that ya'll snacked on a BAG of suckers, & saw Amelia Bedelia- endless memories! I chuckled at Finn scavenging for peanut shells because that is such a Ben activity!
    Also, is Conor behind the lens when you are in front? How does that work? Do you preset the camera for him or is he just as brilliant at taking photos as you? I would love to have more pictures of me and the kids together!

  21. The boys in their baseball tees...love! Minor league games are just so much fun--and way easier with kiddos. And our to do list has been on hold for way too long. Even weekends where we have "nothing going on" seem to get away from us. How do they fill up so fast?!?
