After completely overhauling our backyard for the month or so before Waverly’s party, we decided that we needed a break from house projects (um, for the most part) for a little while. It feels so good to have my husband back for the weekends again, I’m starting to realize that during my summers, if it wasn’t for that, I might not realize that the weekend had even arrived!
We recently took Waverly to the boardwalk for some random weekend fun with my side of the family. We honestly don’t go down there a lot during the summer since there are so many tourists, we try to stick to the bay or other areas where there isn’t so much craziness. Yet it was actually a ton of fun, Waverly of course loved that craziness & even surprised us all when she actually sat in her stroller the entire way down there. We took her to a little carnival & ate ice cream, total toddler heaven!
Of course, it was all fun & games (literally), until Waverly wanted to go on the giant ride with a major height restriction, one she didn’t even come close to hitting. And probably won’t until she is five.
Total toddler tantrum. 😉
I mentioned that we had family & friends over for my husbands birthday last weekend, our birthdays are actually pretty close & mine is a few weeks away. We tossed around the idea of celebrating both our birthday with friends by actually doing something not kid-friendly, possibly past the little ones bedtimes, with lots of alcohol. Then we realized that there was just too much going on (& that our lives revolve around our kids, plus we can’t hold our alcohol anymore), so now, we have decided to still celebrate together, just the two of us! We are going out of town next weekend, only 45 minutes away, but my parents are keeping Waverly Maye overnight for the very first time. We haven’t both ever left her so it’s a pretty big deal for us, we are excited & looking forward to it (especially the sleeping-in part). I know it will be good for all of us but something tells me she will be all we talk about the entire time. And that we will miss her so.
Happy, happy Monday to you all! Wishing you a wonderful week!
