Everyone loves long weekends, but I was especially excited for this one since Conor has had two separate work trips over the last two weeks. And I'm a real baby about business travel. But currently, I'm in a good groove with the boys, and I actually kept my whining to a minimum. High fives all around. So the weekend...
I had a big case of the grumps/blues and was having a hard time shaking it when we first kicked off our weekend. Thank goodness for friends & a husband who somehow knows just what to do. After some college football lounging, I was able to cheer up and still have a particularly wonderful weekend with my boys. One of the highlights being a trip up the mountains to Oktoberfest at Snowbird with friends & neighbors. We filled our mugs, listened to live music (Finn danced, Liam rolled down the hill), and had some uninterrupted adult conversation while the kids stayed in a bounce house for over an hour! Funny thing is, that bounce house ticket we purchased... It's for 5 minutes (ridiculous)! But we've learned that often the workers don't care how long the kids stay in if there is no line. So we waited 'til later in the afternoon and let our kids have at it. Seriously for 1 hour and 15 minutes we did not seem them. Sweet sweet victory.
Sunday brought a trip to the Farmer's Market which happens to be at an actual farm. Finn baa'd for all the sheep and the goats (I'm certain he can't tell the difference between them), and we stocked up on fresh fruit. My boys literally toss raspberries back like it's candy!
Monday the temperatures finally hit the 70s (which we haven't seen since April!) so we kissed summer goodbye with one last game at the ballpark! The Salt Lake City Bees got absolutely slaughtered, and the boys were a particular kind of crazy, but the sunshine felt good. There was a breeze, and I could practically feel Fall slowly creeping into the city.
Unfortunately, my crazy boys turned into grumpy boys quickly after the game. So it was early to bed for them (both down before 7:30pm, boom!), and Old Fashioneds and The Night Of (our newest obsession) for Conor & I. Cheers to the 4 day week ahead!
