Weekend Recap

I love holiday weekends. Especially the ones where my husband is actually off work and we get to spend time together. Because with his work schedule, those are hard to come by. His one day off a week is often filled with catching up on things that we need to get done because he doesn't have time any other days. So when he gets four days off and I actually get to spend them with him... priceless.

Saturday; Our one day of getting things done this weekend. We tossed around ideas for what we wanted to do with our day. I wanted to head to the park for a picnic. Adam wanted to go to the drive-in movie theater. Somehow we ended up hitting up Home Depot for paint and Adam painted Baby's room. I am absolutely in love with the color we chose and I can't wait to start putting the room together.

Sunday; We spent our day with my in-laws. First we headed a few towns over to the Kirkland 4th of July Festival, walking around, eating fair foods and playing bingo. Then we went back to my in-law's house for pizza, fireworks and a bonfire. We learned that Izzy is terrified of bonfires, though she isn't bothered by fireworks like normal dogs.

Monday; Izzy had gotten sick the two previous mornings (she was perfectly fine afterwords both times) and since I wasn't sure why, I wanted to keep an eye on her to make sure she wasn't eating anything outside that was making her sick. So I drank my coffee on the deck and watched her. She was fine, but I think she was eating the weeds that are growing next to our garage. After that, I got up and got ready for the day and desperately wanted a doughnut. So Adam and I headed out, took my weekly bumpdate picture and ran to the grocery store for some doughnuts. We came back home and spent the afternoon lazing around - Adam played video games. I edited the bump picture & did some blog stuff. Around 6:00, we went to my parents house. They live right across from a park where weekly water-ski shows are put on. So my family gathered to watch the ski show and the fireworks put on by the country club that is across the river from the park. We had the perfect view for the fireworks & I loved my little nephew telling us "that's my favorite color! That's daddy's favorite color! That's your favorite color!" - cutest thing ever.
Today, Adam has one last day off work. We have no set plans, so it's another winging it kind of day and I am perfectly alright with that.

I hope you had a great 4th of July!
