It’s April, can you believe it?! We are diving right into a busy month, starting with Joey’s birthday yesterday, Rockies Opening Day this Friday, TWO trips to Vegas, with Easter sandwiched in between, and my sis’s 30th birthday. Whew! This weekend was a good one that involved lots of birthday celebrating and some down time for just the three of us too. Let me show you 😊
Dempsey got to take a field trip to the family fish store on Friday. They opened up early, just for him ❤ Also, I snapped a picture of our tulips on our way out the door to pick Demps back up at the end of the day. I’m so happy they came up! You just never know, you know? Later, we walked over to Ginger Pig with Steve and Lorna and maybe ordered three giant Korean corndogs. Dempsey’s first time eating a hot dog and he was a BIG FAN! It was a fun dinner and I’m so happy to have this good restaurant so close to us. Can’t wait to start our weekly walks there in the summer again 😋
Woke up with a latte craving on Saturday, so Dempsey and Joey went out to grab me one and look who came back with a vanilla steamer that he straight chugged 😂 I made us whole wheat buttermilk pancakes and Dempsey helped by sprinkling on the chocolate chips! He had a fried egg instead of his usual scramble and he liked it that way too.
Mid-morning adventure to the library to get some books and more importantly, to get Dempsey his very own library card!!! 🥰🥰🥰 It’s just a little library but they actually have a very good selection of children’s books. I’m hoping to make this a weekly trip! He picked out three books — Burger Boy, Hats Off to Mr. Pockles and Triceratops Stomp — and played a game of peekaboo with a boy and his mom, who definitely didn’t know they were playing a game of peekaboo 😂 While Dempsey was down for his nap, Joey participated in a very serious fantasy baseball draft and I had some alone time, reading outside and taking a trip to Target.
We spent the rest of the afternoon/evening hanging outside — Dempsey was very into blowing bubbles! — and it felt so nice!!! Then we ate dinner, Demps got a bath and went to bed and Joey and I fired up Cabaret, which neither of us had ever seen. It is definitely strange and unique but Liza is an undeniable star! I only found out she was Judy Garland’s daughter a few years ago (HOW DID I NOT KNOW??) but once you know, you can’t un-see it in her every move!
Happy Birthday, Joey!!! Dempsey “helped” me wrap presents the day before and was very into Dad’s new golf club! We keep having to hid it from him 😂 We had breakfast with my mom and dad (my sis and Wayne sadly had to bail because my sis is sick 😢) and Dempsey was very into his breakfast sausage! We hung out at my parents’ for a bit afterward and tried to get Dempsey to use a magnifying glass. I had a 10:30 haircut, so Demps and Joey headed home and I headed out. Joey sent me that box picture and said Dempsey did NOT like it. Can’t imagine why! 🤣
Back to Los Arcos for the first time in two years!!!! It was Dempsey’s first time there! Felt really nice 😊 He sat on Great Grandpa’s lap, clearly said “Grandma” for the first time 😍😍😍 and devoured a cheese enchilada. We had them sing “Happy Birthday” to Joey and Dempsey seemed very confused 😂 He was NOT into wearing the sombrero but he WAS into eating Dad’s ice cream sundae. Back at home, we watching fifteen minutes of the Grammys, then put Dempsey to bed and watched the rest. I actually thought it was a very good show! And it made the Oscars seem like even more of a mess than they already did, if that’s even possible. The performances were good, the speeches were nice and the In Memoriam segment was very classy. Take note, Academy! I’m sad BTS didn’t win but their performance had my jaw on the floor. I saw a picture of Lady Gaga and Kim Taehyung later on and I honestly still haven’t recovered. Oh and Dempsey and I have been listing to Jon Batiste all morning!
Hope you had a good weekend!
