and this is why I love weekends.

Apr 29, 2013

This working mom thing really blows sometimes.
 
But then I do things like take a vacation day and we get a 3-day weekend together and all stress is forgotten.
 
Friday, we took V to her first Fiesta event - Mexican dress and all. I can't even handle the cuteness. The dress was huge on her but it was just so . damn. darling.
 
The parentals got to enjoy some beer (ok, one each.), bratwurst and good conversation while V took in the scenery and did some roaming around. Then the crowd and the freaking humidity showed up so we were out. I'm just glad we finally made it to something for Fiesta!
Saturday was spent lounging around together and then taking V to the park. We stopped at the large park near our house where we had her birthday party, but it was crowded and there were too many unsafe areas for a newbie walker. And for the newbie walker's parents' nerves.
So we headed to the rec center at a nearby neighborhood, pretended like we lived there and had at their playground. (It's not like they asked for proof or anything and hey, it was empty ;) There was a huge open space, a basketball court and a playground so V just had the best flipping time walking around wherever she wanted. Per usual, the swings were a hit :)
Yesterday was the day we finally cleaned house, which I had been neglecting all weekend.

But to be quite honest, I'll sacrifice a clean house any day to have more time with these faces :)
How was your weekend?

I love those kind of weekends! She is too cute! I've been sacrificing a clean house for like 8 days now. I didn't have time all week and this weekend I was too lazy.

Adorable dress! it's ok that it's big, it'll last longer. ALL of Mackenzie's clothes are big....at least I try to buy them big.
I love 'lazy' out door weekends.

Cole said...

She gets cuter every single day. How is that even possible?! :-)

I totally agree - family time is way more important than a really clean house.

Sarah said...
