Wow – what a beautiful weekend we had outside. We didn’t do a whole lot this weekend, but we still had some fun and got to relax as well.
My view on my drive to work on Friday. The pink sky was so pretty. Of course, after the time change, I now have blazing, blinding sun in my eyes all down this road. :-/
I took Trent to the park and after he played on the playground for a little bit, we walked over to the baseball field since no one was there (a rarity) and he just ran around and around – I think he enjoyed having all that open space. He also waved…a lot. He likes to wave. But the freaky thing is that after he waved at me once, he kept waving to the sky. Probably aliens.
On Saturday, we went to my niece’s Pirate Princess Party. They had some pirate themed foods (like Peg Legs = corndogs on a stick) and a bouncy house that was a pirate ship. Of course, Trent was shy, but when all the kids went to hit the piñata, we seized the opportunity to play in the empty bounce house. Trent loved it!
Oh yeah, and we dressed up a little…Trent with his pirate bandana (from his Pirate costume last year – can’t believe the hat still fit) and his hook. Brett wore his
Johnny Depp Captain Jack hat from Disney and I wore my bandana from my costume last year. We may have been the only adults that participated in the Pirate theme, but I didn’t mind one bit. Trent seemed to like it too. We are gonna be the coolest parents ever for a few years, and then we’ll be the most embarrassing parents ever.
He wasn’t too thrilled with our first attempt down the slide. Perhaps I shouldn’t have made him lay down to do it.
Everything’s better when mommy does it too.
“Oh no! The big kids are coming…time to get out!”
There was also a plank to walk. I just love this…such concentration (including the Svenson trait: concentration tongue) and him holding his hook.
Trent got a tattoo at the tattoo station. He’s a real pirate now.
That night, we enjoyed some barbecue and buffalo chicken skewers while watching the FSU vs. Miami game (Go Noles!).
I used to not care so much about our University football team (I worked and went to school there too), but lately I’ve been getting more excited about it and have been watching the games. It’s probably because for the first time since I moved down here we are doing really well…so yes, I jumped on the bandwagon. I think it would be fun to take Trent to a game…not a crazy one like last night and maybe in a couple of years.
Someone also got into the chocolate chip bag (not naming names) after someone else opened the bag for him (not naming names…ok it was me).
Sunday was so nice, I opened most of the windows in the house and enjoyed the fresh air, which also prompted some cleaning spells around the house. Am I the only one that cleans on a nice day? Sheesh.
Sunday night was for catching up on some DVR and then the new episode of The Walking Dead…which is what I’ll feel like this week since it’s gonna be super crazy at work. Wish me luck!
I also wanted to show you something that we found at WDW when we were there the other week. We saw it at our resort’s shop and thought “Oh this would be nice for Halloween.” But when we went back to buy it, they were gone. So we asked a Cast Member and she said either Magic Kingdom, Pop Century or World of Disney would have some left. Since we were going to eat at T-Rex at Downtown Disney, we pit-stopped into World of Disney and they were gone there too. We asked the Information Desk and were told either Magic Kingdom or Pop Century. We weren’t about to deal with Magic Kingdom, as we were headed out of WDW at that point, so since I wanted a King Cupcake from Pop Century anyway, we went there. I waited in the car with Trent (he was sleeping) while Brett went inside. He returned a few minutes later with just the cupcake. Sad face. So we went online and not even the Disney Store had them…but Amazon did, and it was Prime shipping, so we got one. Funny how Amazon had so many available…I wonder if someone local came by and snatched them all up to make some money online. Either way, it arrived 2 days later and we think it’s just the cutest thing. What is it that we went through all that trouble for? A plastic Mickey pumpkin that glows different colors for trick-or-treating. #Disneynerds
Hope you had a wonderful weekend as well!
