Our Weekend

This past weekend was nothing short of glorious. Robby took Saturday off, which was much needed after 2.5 months of not having one whole day together. We decided it would be a perfect time for Violet to have an over night stay with her Pop and Poppie. We dropped her off Friday evening around six. It was my first time to sleep away from her. I knew she would have a blast and wouldn't mind one bit to spend a whole 24 hours with Pop and Poppie, so that made it much easier to leave. However, when she blew us kisses as she rode away up the field in her wagon, I shed many a tear. That evening we went out to dinner to one of our favorite places, Sweet Basil, for some amazing Thai food. It is our go to date night spot. We also got real crazy, rented a movie, and stayed up to watch the whole entire thing! We didn't really know what to do with ourselves without a bedtime routine or a little human pitter pattering all over the place. I must say, it was quite nice not to be continually locking the kitchen cabinets behind us. 

The next day we slept in until 10:00 am! We got nine whole hours of sleep! That hasn't happened in 13.5 months, people. We rolled out of bed, I grabbed a latte and a scone and Rob treated his skinny self to a big breakfast at Mickey D's. All afternoon I kept looking at V's toys all stacked and neatly put away loving the fact that I hadn't cleaned up after her in a whole day. On the inside though, I was pretty excited for her to come home and make a big mess. Saturday afternoon we finally went to see The Hunger Games at the Warren. What do you do before going to the movies? The movie was quite disappointing, but it was nice to just sit, watch a movie, and eat good food in a dark theater. We love us some balcony time.

We picked up the little munchkin around six that evening. We couldn't get there fast enough. I missed my little tatonka so very much. When we got there she had to show us her new tricks of walking up the stairs and saying "up" as she climbed. She was very proud. She had so much fun and was not too happy with us for making her come home. I, however, was beyond excited. So much so, that I grabbed her out of her crib and put her in bed with us for a while after she had fallen asleep.

Sunday we topped off the weekend eating and coloring eggs with friends and their babies. Violet had a good ole time getting messy with the finger paint, but I think her favorite was getting to wash off in the water outside. I'm pretty sure she makes messes on purpose so that we have no choice but to wash her off. 

Twas a lovely weekend.
