{Weekend Recap} Friday Night Park Dates & Watching Airplanes

I'm not sure about you ladies, but this weekend flew by like a whirlwind. When I look back over the last few days, I'm not really sure what we did with all of our time to make it go by so quickly. 

Kevin was off Friday so as soon as my kiddos had left school, I was out the door and heading home to get in a few minutes of uninterrupted time with the hubby before we headed out to get our favorite little girl. After picking her up from daycare, we headed to a local park for a fundraiser for one of the student's at our school who will be having a liver transplant in the near future. The fundraiser consisted of a hot dog dinner and fun at the park. Both of which Harper indulged in to the fullest.

Saturday Kevin had to head back into work leaving Harper and I to ourselves for the day. We spent most of the morning laying around in our pajamas watching episodes of Paw Patrol and Mickey Mouse... per Harper's request of course. Around lunch we got ourselves up and dressed and made a quick visit to see Kevin and his dad at work. As we were leaving Kevin's work, Harper requested we stop and get "cheeseburgers, fries, and tea". Since we were coming up on McDonald's I swung by the drive thru to grant her request. We weren't in the line two minutes between the time I ordered and paid but in that time, Harper fell asleep. For real. I turned around to hand her the meal she requested to see her snoozing soundly. I had to take a picture to prove it. 

After Harper snoozed away for an hour and a half, we headed to Danville with my friend Brittni to do a little fall shopping. I was on the hunt for some more fall decor and the deals at Marshalls, Hobby Lobby, and Target did not disappoint. I can't wait to share my finds with you all in my fall decor post that'll be coming up in a few weeks. And while we're on the topic of deals, I also scored some super great deals at Target for our little guy. Thanks to the end of summer clearance sale and a Cartwheel coupon for 30% off all infant and kids clothing, I picked up Boston seven pairs of shorts for next year and an outfit for the beach for less than $15! I just couldn't pass that up my friends. 

After our shopping trip, Harper, Brittni and I headed to my parents house where we had left B's car. Since it was nearing supper time we hung around their house until Kevin got off and could meet us there. While we waited on Mom and Dad to finish running errands before dinner, Harper and Kevin spent time playing soccer in the yard and watching airplanes fly by overhead. The sight melted this mama's heart. 

Yesterday, Kevin was working yet another twelve-hour long shift so it was just Harper and I again for the day. We spent our Sundays as we usually do. We headed to my brother's church with my mother-in-law and had an amazing worship service that involved dancing and the wave. Yes. I said that right. One of the youth in our church was baptized and after gathering around him in prayer, we all sang "Washed in the Water" concert style and danced the service away. I know to some this sounds odd but it felt amazing and didn't seem odd at all when you think in reality, those in heaven are dancing and shouting for joy at another life dedicated to serve our savior! 

After an amazing worship service, we headed to my parents' house for lunch with the family. After lunch, while Harper played with some of her new goodies my brother-in-law purchased for her over the weekend, I looked through all the outfits Mom has started collecting for our little guy. I can't begin to tell you how many adorable smocked outfits she's bought for Boston but I can tell you he's already got a nice start to his wardrobe. Next time I'm over, I'll try to remember to grab a picture of all of his adorable new duds he'll be sporting when he gets here. 

The rest of our Sunday evening was spent being lazy. Kevin picked us up a pizza on his way home from work. Not long after arriving home and eating, he was back out the door to play basketball at church with some of the guys. And just a few minutes later, my mother-in-law arrived to spend some time playing with Harper which allowed me a little down time to catch up on blogging as well as to watch a Hallmark movie I'd dvred. And as I'm talking Hallmark ladies, don't forget, this past weekend marked the beginning of all new Hallmark movies every weekend from now until Valentine's day. You're welcome. 

Happy Monday, friends!

  1. You will have to take Harper to the Winston Salem Air Show next year if she loves planes. It's an awesome event!

  2. Isn't that how it always is? Children falling asleep at the worst moments? Sophie will fall asleep in the stroller right as we're 2 minutes away from home. I'm glad you got some time with Kevin albeit brief.

    I do love some Hallmark movies :)
