We had all of the essential elements this past weekend.
TWO parents not working (yay!)
(Note: I had a babysitter come for 2.5 hours on Sunday while Josh did notes & I went to a workout class)
Parenting book club! (We collectively were not huge fans of the book we discussed, but hey — that just made for better discourse.)
A family pool play date w/ friends (this tired everyone out, big time)
Last piano lesson of the season!
A long (for me) run of 5 miles with the stroller, and a solid Ultimate class.
2 meals out (one at Le Pain Quotidien and one at Shorty’s BBQ – you can guess which one I picked and which one Josh picked).
We finished the weekend off with a completely casual anniversary “celebration” which still felt fun and lovely. Our kids finally watched our wedding video! Parts of it, anyway.
Seriously, can we get more of these rare bird 3-day situations with NO parent working?! Cameron reminded that that day was for
“those who served . . . food?” and we gently explained the true origins of Memorial Day weekend.
(He also asked Josh to throw him up to do a “cotton ball” (cannonball) while in the pool. HA!!)
Back to work today and I feel moderately refreshed and ready to return to routine. We do have a PACKED summer calendar (every weekend it seems like we are either working or doing something big!) so it was really nice to have a chill family long weekend at home.
Summer goals coming later in the week!
