This weekend, although seemed short, was a good one. We managed to pack in a number of activities into our 2 short days together as a family that were fun.
Friday I worked until 3:30. After supper, Mitch headed to the gym and Palmer and I were off to the library to find some new books and movies. Palmer loves going to the library to find new books and play on their computers.
When we were leaving the library, she had to stop and run through a big pile of leaves! Fall is definitely here!
Friday also marked 35 weeks of this pregnancy. There won't be long now before this little one is here. But, of course I had to try to sneak in a bump pic
Saturday morning, we woke up, had a semi-slow morning cooking breakfast. After our delicious bacon and eggs meal, we got the slow cookers going. We had 2 pots full of homemade beef barley soup! So yummy!
While the soup was cooking, we headed to the YMCA for Parent and Tot while Mitch worked out. Palmer loves going to the gym to play around. We were going every Saturday until they stopped the program for the summer. This was the first weekend back at it and she loved every second of it. They have a giant bouncy castle they set up, along with gymnastic stuff, balls, blocks, bowling, hockey. You name it, they've got it. Palmer wanted me to go in the bouncy castle with her, but if I got in there, there would be no way I was getting out!
We headed to a local Farm/Cafe after that for their annual Pig and Pumpkin Festival where Palmer played all kinds of games, rode on a giant slide, pet some piglets, and we picked strawberries and raspberries.
When we got home, we got the slow cooker going again with some chili. We want to be stocked up for when this baby makes their appearance.
This morning we had some friends and their girls over for breakfast. It was nice to have them over and not have to try to entertain the 3 kids in a restaurant. We were able to just relax and talk while the girls played with toys and outside with the dog. Much better than hauling everyone out to eat!
This afternoon, we did a few things around the house and baked some banana chocolate chip muffins. Palmer loves to be my little helper, and even though there is often a giant mess to clean up after, the joy she gets from helping is all worth it!
It was crazy windy all day today, but around 7:45 is died off, just enough to head out for a quick walk with the dog. Mitch had to head out of town for work again tonight, but Grandma and Grandpa will be here tomorrow. Then I have my last 4 days of work before my Maternity leave starts! I'm sure this week is going to fly by just as quickly as the last 35 have!
Hope you all had a good weekend.
