This weekend was our most productive and fun weekend that we've had in a long time. We had the guy to our house to dig the hole for Nora's tree, and also do some grading in the backyard in prep for the swing set. He arrived at 6 AM on Saturday, and I was so excited for Cam to wake up and see the digger... when he did wake up and I showed him? He was shaking he was so nervous about it.
Sigh. I hate that. When you are SO SURE your kid is going to love something and it freaks him out? After a while he was having a good time, though.
We had friends over for brunch, and I made a really tasty stuffed french toast. These are 'newish' friends - from our daycare. Their son is turning 2 in about a week, and there other son is just about to be 4 months old. We kept commenting the whole morning that we HAVE to be friends, because there aren't many people that could have a sit down meal with us and not be annoyed!
After they left, both Cam AND Maggie took naps in their cribs (this is a first for Maggie) and they slept for a good 3 hours! Aaron and I were able to transplant some bushes, I was able to plant some day lilies (I'm a bit obsessed with day lilies and want to have one whole side yard of ours filled with them) and even stack some wood. So, our yard is really shaping up - once we get the back yard growing grass and the play set up - it's going to be a lot of fun to finally be able to spend time in our yard.
THEN, we had the next door neighbor girls babysit while we went to see Ironman 2! That was all just Saturday! Sunday was also great, going over and getting the playset, going to the town beach and playing in the sand, flying a kite....
Just a perfect weekend. Perfect weather, perfect fun... pretty perfect kids and husband too (but don't tell them I said that!).
