Weekend Fun

Time for a weekend fun recap!

The weather this past weekend in STL was AMAZING. Like we didn’t wear coats outside. And it’s February. Of course it’s supposed to snow this week so there’s that.

We started off our Friday with story time at the library, where Jude had a blast with the rhythm sticks!

BTR had a HUGE order come through this weekend (YAY) but it also meant he had to work in the shop a bunch. We had some playtime on Friday right when he got home from work because I wanted to see Jude with his new t-ball set. He was given a few gift cards to Target for Christmas and I couldn’t decide what to get with them, until I saw this and was sold! Plus when I priced it out on Amazon it was way cheaper at Target. I know I’m deal crazy!

To say Jude loved it would be an understatement. And really, I think BTR loved it even more. It’s like all his dreams about having a boy were coming true!

Oh and of course Addie loved chasing the ball too. So now I need to go buy more balls because I just know she’s going to eat them! #badaddie

And I quickly learned not to stand in front of them and take pictures. #thathurt

Saturday morning we were all up bright and early and Jude actually spent the morning at my mom’s house so BTR and I could both get some work done! Plus she loves watching him and makes him this ridiculous breakfast spread of pancakes, sausage, eggs, and anything else you could imagine! Maybe I should start eating breakfast there too?

I cranked out some work on my computer with lots of coffee.

And BTR worked in the shop making sample stands to FedEx to a client.

We had a super low key evening and since the weather was SO nice we grilled pork steaks and Brussels sprouts outside. I totally can’t wait to eat dinner on the patio every night this summer!

Sunday we went to a birthday party at my mom’s cousins house. My mom made these wrapped asparagus as an appetizer and I think I ate about 20 of them they were so good!

And since it was so nice again we took Jude’s t-ball set to play some more!

We also got to play with my cousin’s puppy they got for Christmas. She was the cutest thing ever! Her and Jude ran around the yard chasing each other!

It was such a nice weekend! I wish the weather would stay like this, but it looks like I’ll be wearing boots again this week! I hope you all had a fabulous weekend!

    OMG Jude’s face while hitting the ball is just too precious! So handsome!

    I have learned the hard way not to stand in front of the tee! I actually now have to stand behind a net so I don’t get drilled with the ball when I pitch to Mac. That kid’s got a hell of a swing! I love the photos of Jude and BTR. Dad’s dream come true!

    • I seriously almost died, and then I fell over because I was crouched down and fell and am so pregnant and couldn’t get up. It was ridiculous and so hilarious.
