We started off our weekend by celebrating Ryan's 26th birthday! And it was a great celebration too. Both sides of our family got together at Ryan's parents' house and we had delicious food. After dinner we did the whole present thing, and let me tell you, my husband is one spoiled man! He got nearly everything on his birthday list and then some. He has enough snacks to stock his office for a few months if not longer! But we were all happy to get things for him, because he rarely spends any money on himself these days. After presents came the dessert! I made a strawberry-rhubarb crumble courtesy of weelicious.com. (I was really worried about how it would come out, but it was absolutely scrumptious!
Saturday was a pretty low key day for us. Our little family of three went and spent the early afternoon with my folks at the mall (because the darn heat wave made outdoor plans impossible). Sarah was spoiled by Grandma, who bought her some new clothes for next fall and summer. After our mall trip and lunch, we headed home for naps (which only lasted about a half hour) and then got ready for another birthday party. This time we were celebrating Sarah's friend Bo's 2nd birthday! His mom did a great job with decorations and planning. The theme was cookie monster and everything was absolutely perfect. And the heat wave made the pool party that much better! Nothing nicer than a dip in the pool when the thermometer is pushing 112 and you have to double (or triple) check it to make sure you aren't seeing things. Sarah passed out on the way home and tricked Ryan and I into thinking we would have a pretty restful night. Turns out she was up all night due to teeth, heat, stubbornness, or something else. It was exhausting. Needless to say we were ready to sleep in on Sunday.
And sleep we did until 9:40. Sarah woke up then and we had to get ready for church pretty quickly. Luckily we made it on time and then we were able to come home and nap for a good two hours. And then we spent the rest of the day being lazy. We headed to my parents;' house to score some free BBQ pork for dinner and then came back home to get ready for bed. And Sarah decided to bless us with a night free of waking up every hour or so! I was happy to get some uninterrupted sleep once I finally got there. (This third trimester insomnia is starting to kick my butt.) How was everyone else's weekend? Busy or slow?
