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.
