Weekend Randomness

Hello, again. How was everyone's weekend?  Ours was fun and relaxing. It seems like some weekends are so packed full that they don't feel much like a break or a weekend, but this one was just what we needed after the first week of school. This week was hard on M since J was gone most of the day. It will be really good to get her in preschool so that she doesn't feel like she just has to sit and wait around for J and all of their neighbor friends to get home.

On summer nights we like to mix things up by eating outside. My back yard is one of my favorite things about our house. We grilled some hamburgers and had some fruit.

Friday started out with a 5.5-mile run and the rest of the day was a lot of playing with M (and V). I'll admit that it was kind of exhausting.  First, we played squinkies. I don't know if any of you have seen these, but we got them second hand from someone who was just throwing a whole bunch of toys away. They ended up being M's favorite thing. There are only a few things that are bad about that.

1. you can't really find these anymore except on Ebay.
2. V likes to put them in his mouth.

But she loves them and so we play them a lot.

After playing with just about every toy she has, and reading just about every book we have to V, it was lunch time and then they wanted to go to the park. So we spent a few minutes over there, but it was too hot to play on any of the slides or swings. One of the downsides to the park next to us is that there is NO shade. So we didn't stay long before waiting in the shade at the bus stop for J to get home. She did all of her homework and was off again, this time with her grandma to go birthday shopping. M was ok with that as long as we played some more. So we watched a movie and had a special treat (a milkshake).

When Trevon got home from work, we went on a walk and V wanted to hold my hand the whole way. Anytime little buddy. 

I saw this little test online over the weekend. If you want to see how much sleep you've lost being a parent, you can go HERE. 14 months guys.  I need some sleep! If only you could get that back, right?

So hows that for a whole lot of weekend randomness? 

What is something random from your weekend?

What was your favorite toy as a kid?
