Our weekend started with a household stroll across the neighborhood after a giant pancake breakfast. Chase needed to drive his Energy Wheels Jeep so he had a blast steering it round whereas all of us adopted our little speedy driver. We didn’t have an excessive amount of time to kill within the morning after our stroll earlier than our plans for the day took us to Mooresville to have fun Tommy’s second birthday!
The get together passed off at my good friend Carrie’s mother and father’ home on Lake Norman and the situation was excellent for a summertime celebration. The youngsters splashed within the lake and had a blast leaping off the dock again and again. The one method we managed to persuade them to take a break was with the lure of birthday cake!
As soon as everybody had lunch and cake of their bellies, we headed again to the water for extra swimming.
Additionally, this can be a gross little aspect notice, however I believe I formally have a toddler on my palms who enjoys pooping in swim diapers. I imply simply have a look at this little smirky smile…

We spent most of Saturday on the lake and made it dwelling round four p.m. Ryder slept the entire method dwelling (he additionally took a brief nap earlier than the get together within the morning) and didn’t depart the home for the remainder of the night.
We frolicked in our pajamas, grilled out within the yard for dinner and made selfmade chocolate chip cookies to pair with vanilla ice cream for dessert. Not a foul approach to spherical out the day!
Oh and I have to share this image of Ryder with you guys from Saturday night time as a result of it made me chuckle out loud. As Ryan and I had been within the kitchen making ready the meals for dinner, Chase proceeded to place nearly all of my outdated race medals on his little brother. Ryder clink-clink-clinked into the kitchen and we burst out laughing!
The primary half of our Sunday was somewhat go-go-go. Each boys slept in till 7:30 a.m. (victory!) after which we took them to the morning siblings class at MyGym the place they practiced their gymnastics expertise and ran everywhere.
After MyGym, we popped into Goal to seize some storage bins and humanities and crafts provides for a couple of artful issues I hope to do with the boys this week after which made our approach to Birkdale Village for lunch.
We grabbed meals from Cava and introduced it outdoors for just a little picnic.
Ryan and I each agreed that picnic-style is the easiest way to eat with our boys proper now. Ryder simply desires to maneuver and be free and Chase has by no means beloved hanging out at eating places for a very long time. Fortunately the summer season climate was excellent for just a little outdoors eating! After we had been performed consuming, we made our approach to the splash pad.
The entire lunch/Birkdale journey wasn’t on our authentic plans for the morning so we didn’t have bathing fits for the boys however we made due.
Diaper Child nonetheless had a blast!
We grabbed smoothies from Clear Juice for the boys earlier than heading dwelling and placing them each down for a nap.
Since Chase is simply actually napping two(ish) days per week currently, we weren’t certain if he’d truly sleep however I believe a number of no-nap days in a row caught as much as him and each Chase and Ryder napped for almost two and a half hours. It was beautiful and Ryan used their nap time to take Sadie on a stroll whereas I labored on the pc.
By the point the boys had been up, we had been all feeling just a little extra energetic and able to play!
We spent the remainder of the afternoon at a close-by park the place Chase might drive his Jeep in “turbo mode” whereas we performed fetch with Sadie and Ryder kicked a soccer ball round. (And sure, I actually do imply Ryder “kicked” a soccer ball… I have to seize his teeny soccer dribble on video as a result of it blows our thoughts!)
Clearly Sadie’s affinity for selecting the most important stick she will probably discover lives on!
Once we arrived again dwelling, we gave the boys baths, ordered pizza and cinnamon twists for dinner and known as it an early night time.
Plans for the week forward embrace persevering with with ISR and absorbing the ultimate few weeks of summer season with the boys! Chase doesn’t start preschool till September so I’m seeing all of those kiddos return to highschool already and we’re positively not in that mode over right here simply but. Hope you all have an excellent Monday and I hope to see you again right here quickly!
