Weekend Recap :: Colin's First Trip to the Zoo

What a busy weekend we had, but it was full of great things so I'm not complaining about being a little extra tired this Monday!  Nothing a little coffee can't fix.

On Friday Jason was craving a meal out since we've been really disciplined lately during the week and cooking so the boys and I met him at our favorite Mexican food restaurant after work.  We were both still semi-good with our meals even though we were out.  After dinner we did the now-mandatory stroll to Ben & Jerry's so Jack could get some ice cream - his reward for being good during the meal.  No ice cream for me or Jason, but I didn't even care because it was too fun watching Jack eat his and then listen to some live music.  Colin slept!

Saturday morning we slept a little later than I had planned but got our butts in action for the zoo.  It was a beautiful day and we wanted to take Jack and Colin before it gets too hot in the coming months.  It was a great day to go.  It wasn't too crowded and the temperature was pleasant.  We were there from about 10:45-3:00.  Jack had a blast seeing all of the animals and running around.  We carted him around in his wagon for when we needed to walk longer stretches and when he got tired.  Colin was a champ too.  He did great and we did a mix of stroller and baby carrier with him so he could see everything.  He slept some and nursed great in public while we were out.  Both boys passed out in the car on our way home! 

I made a healthy dinner at home Saturday night to make up for our indulgences of the day.  After the kids were asleep Jason and I watched The Forest in bed before calling it a night.

On Sunday our church had a celebration day to mark the end of a fundraising campaign.  The students from the preschool sang with the choir {Jack included} and everyone wore red for the annual Parrish picture.  We did lunch afterwards and then came home during a big rainstorm.  The rest of the day was just typical Sunday items like grocery store and laundry.

This week I'm looking forward to jumping in headfirst with my Rodan & Fields business.  I'll be mailing out lots of mini-facial kits so leave your email below if you want one.  

I'm also looking forward to attending Bloom this Thursday, an event hosted by Houston Moms Blog for new and expecting moms.  I will be working check-in so please say hello if you will be there!
