My wife went out of town for 4 days this last weekend, and I was tweeting/instagramming all about it. She went on a mini vacation with 4 of her Pharmacy school friends:
Dressed up for a night out. (Yes, the friend on the far right IS about to give birth...)
FRIDAY: A smirk from this guy as we wait for his brother to finish his speech therapy.
One of our 2 big weekend splurges was a trip to Blue Sun Soda.
See lots more pics in this post on my "root beer blog."
Two great ideas at Blue Sun Soda: free pinball (the boys' first play!), and free popcorn.
A Friday night bedtime photo sent to Mama.
So the next morning (SATURDAY), we went to watch the demolition for 20 minutes:
There were a few "bundles" of rebar piled up. The excavator in the middle was squishing
piles of rebar. The excavator to the far left was actively jack-hammering up the bridge deck.
A quilt hung over my bedroom window to help deaden the construction noise for Saturday night.
Heading to cheer at the "Get in Gear 10K."
Cheering the 12 min pace runners through (after the masses of runners have been by).
My wife thought we were going to "sit around in our underwear scratching our
butts while eating beef jerky all weekend." So I sent her this pic.
When Mama's home, he loves it when she takes a nap with him. We call it a
"slumber party." I promised Henry that if he was good, we could have a slumber party
and he could sleep in Mama's spot for the night. Here he is tucked in before bed.
SUNDAY was more low-key. We sent Mama a pic of all of the dandelions the boys picked from the backyard laid out in a heart:
And then a little grubby hand destroyed the heart.
Our second trip to the compost site over the weekend. We needed more wood chips.
Charlie picks the oddest ways to get cozy.
