Mother’s Day Weekend Things

Hello! Long time, no talk. I did not mean to take a break from posting last week, but that is how it happened. I am back and it is May! I hope you had wonderful weather and got to celebrate the mother and mother-figures in your life. I saw lots of friends with older kids post cute things their children made them and man, I cannot wait to get one of those some day!

Friday mood! This boy has a renewed love of his tunnel and I think it’s the cutest! Lori brought him back home since she had to come this direction anyway and then we had a chill night at home.

Up and at em with ricotta pancakes! We relaxed on the couch afterward and someone retrieved the empty milk carton from the recycling?? Who knows! The rest of the day was a frenzy of chores because we knew we’d be too busy on Sunday. Joey got to clean up outside though, so I think he was happy. We did absolutely nothing with our flower garden over the winter and everything is back in bloom. I love that! Feels like we haven’t watched a movie in so long aaaaand we didn’t end that on Saturday either ๐Ÿ˜‚ Instead we started watching PEN15 and then I had to listen to Joey tell me it’s “not really for him” because it’s about girls. Let’s not go there, buddy ๐Ÿ˜‹

Happy Mother’s Day! I brought Dempsey into our bed for a morning snuggle but he would rather stand up and walk on my head so he can turn my bedside lamp on ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚ Spoiled by Joey and Dempsey with cards, tulips and another flower delivery subscription โคโค Then my parents, my sis and Wayne and Lori all came over. We phoned it in with breakfast this year and had Snooze deliver. The food showed up right on time, yay! I love how Dempsey is at his easel in that group photo. While little man was down for his nap, we saw a literal swarm of bees in our backyard!!!! They’re chilling on the back of our garage right now, but someone has volunteered to come relocate them later today (if they haven’t already moved on). Truly both freaky and interesting at the same time. We spent the rest of the afternoon at Steve and Lorna’s and it was a very relaxed time. Dempsey was having too much fun pounding Cathy’s cane on the ground ๐Ÿ˜‚

Lastly, I just want to say to those for whom Mother’s Day is a hard day, I see you, I hear you and I am sending my love to you. I hope you are able to make it through this day the best you can โค

Weekend Things

Just realized most of my weekend pictures are of Dempsey. That seems about right ๐Ÿ™‚ This is our one weekend home between two weekends in Vegas, so we tried to take advantage by seeing our friends, doing some home projects and soaking up lots of time with our little man. Oh and we felt bad asking anyone to babysit, so we each saw the same movie but by ourselves at different times ๐Ÿ˜‚

Just chillin at the water cooler with a cup of coffee, ya know? Had our normal Friday morning with Dempsey before Grandma Lori came to get him to go to the zoo! Couldn’t have been nicer weather.

Lori sent this photo of him looking at a giant fish. Sounded like they had a fun time! We picked him up at the end of the day and made our way home and then Hannah, Josh, Mason and Henry came over and we had BBQ for dinner and watched the boys run around like crazy. Joey and I are trying to take Dempsey out to more restaurants but sometimes it’s just so nice to be able to sit and chat at the table while the kids entertain themselves for a couple of hours. Totally forgot to take any pictures but they all had fun in the bumper car and Dempsey decided Hannah was his new mom and wouldn’t leave her side. It was the cutest ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜

Pancakes and wall sits. I went simple and just made our standard honey sesame pancakes and they hit the spot.

Played a bit afterward and then tackled the bins of clothes Hannah passed down to us on Friday. Dempsey has a full closet of new clothes and I’m so happy about it! Then Joey headed out for his viewing of Everything Everywhere All At Once. He got back around 2 and would give me NOTHING. Not even an “I liked it,” so I guess he’s good at keeping a spoiler. My viewing started at 3 and even though it was weird sharing a table at the Alamo with a stranger, it was still a good time. THIS MOVIE IS INSANE. Totally lives up to its name. I laughed, I cried, I loved it. My theater was pretty full and everyone was losing their minds over the funny parts. Some of it goes past my level of humor, but, for the most part, I found it hysterical. Check it out, if you have time! Michelle Yeoh is a goddess. Also, it was fun seeing a movie solo but I prefer going with Joey!

There is a whole bit about an everything bagel in Everything Everywhere All At Once and it made me really want one! Joey and Dempsey headed out to a brewery that recently started serving coffee and bagel sandwiches to grab one for each of us. They were really good and just the right size!

Who knows what we did all afternoon except that Dempsey’s new thing is to get out this bunny pillow and blanket and lay down with both and it’s the cutest thing. Joey also changed him into some “capris” (aka he rolled up his pants ๐Ÿ˜‚) and I loved the look! Joey installed a new closet organization unit upstairs and a bookcase/shelving unit downstairs where we keep all of Dempsey’s toys and hopefully both help us out. Oh and I went and got a facial during nap time then came home and read for a bit. Gotta finish my book before tomorrow’s book club meeting!

Made wings for dinner and that Jamaican Jerk sauce my sis and Wayne got Joey for his birthday was tasting extra firey, but in a good way. Dempsey is getting so good at eating wings too! Mid-dinner we tried to practice winking with him and he was making thee funniest faces. We were laughing so hard. Hope you had a good weekend too!
