Happy Monday! (wait, is there even really such a thing?)
I hope you all had a fabulous weekend. We sure did. Friday started out with some playdate fun at the local park district that has the carousel inside plus a jungle gym area. The kids had a freaking blast... except towards the end when Brayden came up to me and told me his one friend no longer liked him anymore because he was playing with other classmates. I reassured him they were still friends and by the end of the playdate all was well in preschool friend land, but jeez that broke this Mama's heart for a second! That is the first time he has ever said someone didn't like him and was super sad about it. I can't believe this stuff starts this early, I am so not ready for all of this!
Brayden loves getting a brain freeze :)
Saturday it was pouring rain all day so we hung around inside and did a whole lot of nothing. Later in the day I met up with my sister for drinks and girl chat, it was nice to get out for a little!
For dinner I made one of my all time favorite recipes - chicken and cheese taquitos by Baked Bree. If you have not seen her site, check it out now! There are so many delicious recipes
Sunday was family day - we spent the morning playing outside since it was gorgeous out!
Brayden insisted his sister push him on the swing :)
Then we headed to lunch at a train restaurant where it is physically located right by a train and also your food comes out to you on a little train. The kids were so excited!
Again, I ate a greasy cheesburger, fries, and a chocolate milk shake (and I didn't feel bad about it one bit!)
Me and my girl!
The boys :)
Attempt at a girls shot, this was the best one out of 10 :)
They had this little pony you could ride so of course Ella was all about that and the hubs gave Brayden quarters to buy several bounce balls out of a machine.
We then did a little shopping and walking around and later at night went over by my in laws for dinner which was a cheesy beef and fries. I only ate half of the beef because I had to use some self control this weekend :)
Now it's back to working out and eating right (oh how fun) :) Hope it's a great start to the week for everyone!
