Weekend Recap

Strawberry and sweet pea picking

Ah, what a lovely weekend.  It was quiet, and we had no social plans with the exception of a birthday party on Saturday that Nathan attended.  That's a good thing sometimes.  We got some things done around the house, and we spent time together as a family.  While Nathan and I attended the party, Kevin and Aaron got some quality time.  They went to hit balls at a golf course and then out to lunch.  

We also checked several things off our list!  Saturday was a beautiful day, so we decided it was a good night to try out our new tent.  Backyard family campout was a success!  We made s'mores, which is of course required before you can sleep in a tent.  We put the boys to bed and had them try to go to sleep on their own, and we joined them later.  It took them a while, but they eventually did get to sleep.  As camping goes, I didn't have the greatest night's sleep; but the boys slept pretty well and didn't wake until 7:15, which is pretty good given how light it is at 6AM!  

On Sunday, we ate the traditional pancake breakfast, and then we ventured out to a local farm to pick strawberries and sweet peas.  It was a fun way to spend Father's Day morning.  We puttered around the house and yard for most of the afternoon, and we made fish tacos for dinner.

Goals for this week:
1.  Quality time with Nathan.  He's done with school, but his big brother has one more week.
2.  Exercise.  I think it's going to be harder with both boys around every morning, so I gotta keep the rhythm going.
3.  Check out all the local swimming ponds/lakes and figure out which one the boys and I should go to.
4.  Order the cake and buy favors for Nathan's birthday party (soon!  my baby is going to be 4!)
5.  Lots of water and a good night's sleep
