Weekend Things

Why does June have to get so hot so fast?? We were outside for a few hours on Saturday and I think it took me the rest of the weekend to recover. I guess that’s why I took all of four photos? Oops!

Up and at em on Friday to take Dempsey to the dentist! This was his second visit and I think it was less traumatizing than the first πŸ˜‚ He left with the dentist’s seal of approval and a bouncy ball that he’s been very excited about ever since. Teeth brushing time at home remains an absolute horror, but those of you with older children, please tell me it gets easier! Afterward, he was off to Grandma’s and I was off on my BTS cloud because their anthology album, Proof, dropped the night before and yes, I’ve heard all of those songs before, but they hit different when placed in the very thoughtful order they’re in. Waiting for my physical copy to arrive tomorrow, so I can listen to the third part, which is CD only?! I didn’t even know CD players still existed, but anything for you, BTS!

Adam joined us for dinner and it was hot but thankfully not too hot to sit outside. Dempsey was having too much fun throwing his bouncy ball over the netting around our garden and having Uncle Adam roll it back to him. He was not thrilled when I made him go inside for bath and bedtime πŸ˜‹

We had our normal morning pancakes on Saturday then got ourselves ready and headed to Elitch’s for our company picnic. We got there around 10:45 and Dempsey rode A SINGLE RIDE and just wanted to watch the others. He was also very interested in the Ferris wheel! It was so hot already, so I was fine with heading over to the covered party area anyway. We visited, Dempsey wandered, we all ate and then I headed out, so I could get him down for a late nap. He was so tired and maybe laid like that at the top of the stairs when we got home πŸ˜‚ Joey came back around 4 and we made dinner and hid inside for the rest of the day.

Sunday morning and this is the state of our house most of the time. How does he make a mess so quickly?? Truly impressive πŸ˜‹ We got outside early before it got hot and Dempsey managed to spray himself in the face with the hose while I was watering our plants πŸ˜‚ Later on, I headed out to get my hair cut and 45-minutes is just really not long enough to gab with my hairdresser, you know? She’s going on a handful of trips this summer and I am so jealous! We need to get our vacation plans in order earlier. Spent the rest of the day lounging and that was pretty nice. I hope you had a good weekend too!

Weekend Things

Just an update: Dempsey has a little boot! Last Tuesday he started limping, so we took him to our pediatrician who had us take him to the ER for x-rays and though they found nothing, the orthopedic specialist we saw the next day wanted us to just cover all our bases and have him in a boot for two weeks. I’ll be honest, I wasn’t expecting that! But he’s been a trooper in it and it hasn’t slowed him down a bit. Also, the boot is just so small and cute πŸ˜πŸ˜‚

So all of that happened earlier in the week, but by Friday, we were ready to have some fun. We headed over to Hannah and Josh’s for pot pie dinner (so good!) and the boys ran around like crazy. Mason is about to start tee-ball so he got some practice in and now, at home, Dempsey has been swinging his Rockies bat all over the place πŸ˜‚ He maybe didn’t want to share any bubbles with Henry but hopefully he’ll get better at that 😊

Started Saturday with a walk to Downpours for coffee and breakfast burritos and Dempsey sure liked mine! Afterward, we made our way to Betsy and Jory’s gender reveal and how confusing is the picture above?! It’s a girl but they both managed to twist their confetti the wrong direction πŸ˜‚ Very excited for the four of them to add another girl to the mix! And it was fun to hang out and watch Dempsey run around with all the other kids and maybe try to eat the chips off of everyone’s plates!

We didn’t get home till 2ish, so we let him nap a little later and then once he was up, we hung out outside, made dinner and walked to get ice cream. This child was straight giddy eating his πŸ˜‚ We had the place to ourselves, which was for the best since Dempsey was dragging around the wet floor signs, turning off the fridge of to-go ice cream and playing with a random remote he found. After we put him to bed, we turned on Fire Island and I thought it was very fun. It’s a Pride & Prejudice adaptation and can you believe I’ve never read the original text?? Joey and I were singing Britney Spears’ “Sometimes” for the rest of the weekend!

Please accept these three pictures Dempsey took while I give you a Sunday recap. We headed into Broomfield to have breakfast with my family and what a nice way to start a Sunday. I got to hear about my sister’s new job and sit next to my mama πŸ₯° Afterward, we headed back home and did our usual Sunday chores and relaxed a bit. Joey built a legit cage around our veggie garden, so take that, squirrels! I hope your weekend was nice as well!
