Happy Monday, my friends. How was your weekend? Our was good, especially after a tough week last week (more on that tomorrow), we needed a few days to relax.
So relax, we did. Starting with a family movie and pizza night Friday. We watched Alvin and the Chipmunks, Chipwrecked, and picked up a $6 large pizza from Little Cesar's, made a picnic on the living room floor and enjoyed the night together.
Saturday morning, we lazed around, did a little grocery shopping, went for run, put some boys down for nap, then in the afternoon headed to Carmel Valley for some sunshine.
Future heart-breakers of America. Honestly. How much trouble are those blues going to give me in the future?
We opted for Georis Happy Hour: $5 glasses of wine, free apps, lots of room for the kids to run, sunshine? Perfection.
This is Bennett's poop face. And a meatball on a stick.
Things you needed to see, right?
An older lady came up to us during the course of the evening and told us it was so good to see well- behaved children. This is the nicest thing you can tell a parent, but of course we had to question her judgement as later we put the boys 'in jail'.
And then Cullen started eating his toys.
Maybe it was their sweetness that convinced the lady that they are well behaved?
Or the mullet. The mullet is pretty distracting.
Hm. Well behaved? Or hilarious peanut butter mustache?
Either way, I appreciated her kind words and the sunshine in Carmel Valley.
We ended our Saturday with cocktails with the neighbors and Saturday football highlights.
Sunday morning started bright and early with this little man and me:
And then continued at Gizdich Ranch for a little fall celebration.
The sun was out when we woke up (a rarity around here) so we opted to skip Mass and have a Creation Appreciation Day.
Fresh Apple Pie? Don't mind if I do.
We went here last year too, can you believe how big the boys have gotten?
Some naps, a dinner dropped off to friends who recently had a baby, an 8 mile run by Kev, bath, dinner and Once Upon a Time, then the weekend was over.
Just what we needed.
