…wouldn’t you agree?
Having Cody home yesterday was such a treat!
Let’s back up to Friday – my dad’s birthday! We headed over to my parents’ house after Cody got off work to celebrate my dad’s birthday.
It was the big 5-5 … double nickles as we called it.
My sister bought some stick-on mustaches from the party store to help celebrate. It made for lots of good laughs and some pretty hilarious photos.
Hunter, however, was not a fan! He took one look at me and looked SO frightened. Ha!
My parents grilled steaks that we ate alongside asparagus, rice, and salad. My dad’s favorite, blueberry torte, was for dessert!
My dad is a huge blueberry lover, so I baked him some Blueberry Boy Bait to eat for breakfast/dessert/snack over the weekend. He loved it!
Moving right along to Saturday…
…the morning started with a Body Pump class and getting some stuff down around the house.
Then, we left Hunter with Cody’s parents and headed out to the lake for some boating with friends. Boating and water sports are probably one of my top favorite things EVER. Needless to say, I was so stoked when our friends invited us to come hang out with them on the lake.
This thing – it’s a tube called The Revolution (yes, it has a name), and it’s INSANE. The rope is connected underneath to the center of the tube, which causes the tube to spin as the boat starts moving. It feels like you’re on a merry-go-round on the water – SO fun but so crazy.
Some drinks were also enjoyed. Ever tried one of these? One of my new favorites. Yum.
We had a blast! It was so fun to catch up and hang out with good friends while enjoying a beautiful day on the lake.
I don’t have too much to show for Sunday. We tried out a new church that we think is a keeper, so we were excited about that! Another perk: it’s only five minutes away from our house. A HUGE deal considering our church in SLC was a thirty-five minute drive from our house. We are looking forward to getting plugged into a church family, so we’re hoping this one works out.
The rest of Sunday was spent over at Cody’s brother’s house with that side of the family to celebrate Cody’s step-brother’s birthday. (Told ya we have a TON of family out here. Ha!) We spent the afternoon swimming, playing with the babies in the grass, hitting around the volleyball, and eating good food. It was a fun day!
We agreed Monday was going to be more of a chill day since the rest of the weekend was so insanely busy. We did some more house stuff (it’s a constant thing these days ) in the morning, and then enjoyed some pool time in the afternoon. Hunter is already a little fish! I’m excited to take him swimming a lot this summer.
I convinced Cody to go look at some furniture later in the day, and we ended up with two end tables and a couple new lamps! Yay!
The day ended with grilled veggie pizza – the best!
I look back on the weekend and feel refreshed, content, and exhausted all at the same time. It was a busy and fun weekend, that’s for sure!
