We had a fun weekend. And it started on Friday! We went to a trampoline park with one of my good friends and her daughter. Beckham jumped till he was worn out. On our way home, we headed by Sonic to grab an ice cream cone and myself a drink. I’m trying a new cleaning method. I’m kind of a binge cleaner and like to do it all on one day (the major stuff like bathrooms and such). So, I’ve decided to do something super fun with Beckham (and Maddox, although he’s kind of along for the ride right now) every Friday after Maddox’s morning nap. Then come home in time for Maddox to take his afternoon nap. Once he’s down, I pop a movie in for Beckham (his choice) and clean for as long as Maddox is asleep (usually 2 hours)! I open the blinds, let the sun come in and clean, clean, clean. I plan on writing a post about how I keep things clean (well at least try to). I’m a clean freak, so even if I’m really busy, I WILL clean!
We ate Mexican Friday night! I love eating out so a clean house and someone serving ME…I was a happy girl! I love this picture because I’m pretty sure any parent with young kids can appreciate this photo. You know you’re dining out with a baby when half of the table looks like this. Can you tell where the baby was sitting?
Saturday morning, Ryan took B to Home Depot to try their Kid’s Workshop! This was his first time and it was great! It’s FREE, so if you have a Home Depot near you, you should try it. It was a special day for Easter so they had the Easter bunny (he refused to get a picture with him…no surprise), cotton candy (he didn’t like it…big surprise), and a bounce house. They built a bird feeder with a chalkboard sign. He got to paint it and everything! Maddox went down for his nap shortly after they left, so I was able to get some things done at the house.
Afterwards, Beckham and I decided to go see a movie…Paddington. We were going to see Big Hero 6, but I showed him the two previews beforehand and he chose Paddington. We went to the dollar theater just in case he didn’t like the movie…no way I’m spending $16.00-20.00 on tickets if he didn’t like it. We used our refillable tub (and drink) so he was super excited to have popcorn! We go to the movies a lot and bought this tub and drink cup and can refill it for $3.50 each throughout 2015. We always get popcorn and a drink so this was a great deal. I cannot resist the smell of that popcorn when you walk in 🙂
Well, it’s a good thing we were at the dollar theater…10 minutes in and he wanted to leave. I made him stay longer to see if he would like it. After about 45 minutes, he was still asking to leave, so we headed out. I didn’t feel bad because we only wasted $2.50…he demolished the popcorn so no money wasted there.
We had our Easter service on Saturday night so we got dressed up and headed to church. We forgot to have someone take our picture inside church so I snapped these before we left. Maddox was super cute and the workers said he was so much fun in “class”…this was a big deal since it was his bed time.
Afterwards, we headed to my side of the family for more Easter and 3 birthday celebrations! The kids did a hunt indoors since it was a little chilly and rainy. We were celebrating my older sister’s 33rd birthday, my niece’s 16th birthday, and my sister-in-law’s 28th birthday.
It was a great weekend and I’m ready to start the week! We have so many things on our to-do list to get our backyard rolling for the great weather we’ve been having! And we need to make a decision on a car…such a tough choice. Hope you had a great weekend as well!
