What are the signs of a damn good weekend? When Liam and I come home sun kissed and exhausted on Sunday evening.
Liam’s dad ended up being home early and picked him up from the day home, so I was forced to abandon my plans to take Liam on an ice-cream-for-dinner date and to City Hall Park. Instead, I ran home and changed into my yoga gear for my third yoga in the park for the week. It was H-O-T and everyone had filled the shady spots before I got there. I just embraced the weather and set up in the full sun for one sweaty practice. It was glorious.
Afterwards, I took advantage of the kid free time to run some errands: finding varnish to refinish my kitchen chairs, a barbell set from Costco to go with Les Mills Pump that I just got in the mail, and finishing up with some take out and beer.
Don’t worry, I only drank one beer while watching Suits before calling it a night and going to bed.
I was so excited for the opportunity to finally SLEEP IN! Do you think it happened? Nope. I woke up every half hour starting at 5:30 until I finally gave in and got up at 8 to get ready for a hot trip to the market.
Keeping with the theme of non-produce market purchases:
A succulent to go in the cute little cup Cassandra brought back from her last vacation, and floral harem pants that fit me more like leggings with giant pockets, but I don’t care because they’re super soft and comfy and adorable.
After there market I made a quick grocery store trip to stock up on the weekly goods because going home to get gussied up for a co-workers wedding. It was an intimate backyard wedding and they couldn’t have chosen a more beautiful afternoon to hold it.
After the ceremony I went to lay in front of a fan in bed for a couple hours until heading to some another co-workers house for a BBQ before we all headed down to the reception. I didn’t stay out too late since I knew I wanted to be up and ready fairly early for a day at the lake with my family.
I actually managed to sleep in a little bit better, waking up every hour at 6. I think I could have continued dozing for a few hours but dragged my butt up around 8 to get ready for the day and wait for Liam to come home.
As soon as Liam was home, we headed straight to the lake and spent the entire day outside having far too much fun. Liam’s come a long way there, going from being afraid of the water, to running right in to splash and swim. We spent the day digging in the sand, visiting puppies, splashing each other, swimming, riding in the tube and even paddle boarding. Liam was so great on the paddle board. He just sat right at my feet the whole time and loved every minute of it. It was the perfect day and I can’t wait to do it all over again.
We both came home more than a little sun-kissed (me more than Liam) and extremely exhausted (Liam more than me), but my heart is so ridiculously full of love and memories from such a fun day with Liam.
Tell me the highlight of your weekend?
Ever try SUP?
