The older Peanut gets, the more fun things we do on the weekends. Not only because he’s old enough to enjoy it, and because his one afternoon nap is so easy to work around, but also because he goes nuts if he’s cooped up inside for two days straight.
Here’s a little recap of our weekend fun.
1-3. Peanut loves playing in the water with his shovel and bucket. So with the spigot outside our house, he splashed and played for over an hour while Philip and I sat on our shady porch. We’ll be doing this a lot more this summer, I’m sure.
4. I’m working on a larger than life painting of Peanut, and that big floating head cracks me up every time I walk past it. Peanut also runs out to the front room to check it out every so often, saying, “I need to go look at the painting.” Hilarious.
5. While the boys took an afternoon nap, I went out and did a little shopping, all by myself. Heaven. Also, I bought three new bras. Double heaven.
6-8. With all the raving about Nat The Fat Rat’s winning cookie recipe, I had to make them. They were AMAZING. Perfectly crispy around the edges and gooey on the inside. Plus, the sea salt was a delicious little touch. Peanut mostly liked picking out all the chocolate chips.
9. On Sunday, we attended a baby blessing for our very good friends. Peanut spent the entire time in their basement driving around in this little red car. With both of their older boys too old for the car, and with their upcoming move in two weeks, they generously gave it to Peanut. He was in heaven. And, as you can imagine, a major meltdown ensued when it was time to put it away at bedtime.
Hope you all had a happy weekend too!
