Hi, guys! A very HAPPY Monday to you!
How was your weekend? (I seriously can’t believe it’s already the 2nd week of August. WHERE has summer gone!?) Overall, our weekend was really great with lots of highs and plenty of fun stuff in the mix, but it included a few lows too, which, of course, makes for the perfect High Low High post as a way to recap. If you’re unfamiliar with this blog post series, I recap the high and low points of the weekend. It’s fun. Ok, here we go!
HIGH: Finally buying a new patio umbrella. Hooray! Ours was damaged during a wind storm this spring, so it looked ridiculous with a rip in the fabric and bent spoke, but we just never got around to replacing it until this past weekend. I swear, our patio looks a zillion times better now!
LOW: Murphy being SO TIRED that he wasn’t able to fully enjoy our Friday afternoon happy hour. His life = so hard.
HIGH: Planting flowers with Quinn!
He was soooo into it and wanted to do everything himself. “Me! Me! Meeeee!”
LOW: Waking up too sore on Saturday morning for CrossFit. Boo. I hate missing Saturday WODs. They’re always so fun.
HIGH: Going out to breakfast with my favorite guys instead!
LOW: Mal’s Western omelet. It didn’t have an appropriate “ham to onion ratio.” Haha! Poor Mal.
HIGH: Attending the Byrne Family Reunion! Our family hadn’t had one since 2008 (it was actually right after Mal and I got back from our honeymoon), so we were really looking forward to catching up with everyone.
LOW: Attempting to wrangle a cranky/strong-willed/maniac toddler for 2.5 hours and then just calling it quits. Plus, after changing an especially messy swim diaper, Mal and I decided it was time for the three of us to go home.
HIGH: Cracking up over the whole “poop soup” situation. It was so gross and so funny at the same time. All we could do was laugh!
LOW: Not having a chance to eat very much at the family reunion.
HIGH: Getting take-out from Not Your Average Joe’s on our way home!
LOW: Eating a sub-par chicken sandwich for dinner. It wasn’t terrible, but I’ve definitely had better. And, honestly, I was so hungry, I didn’t really care. Feed me.
HIGH: Turning Quinn’s car seat around!
LOW: Visiting the new playground near our house, but Quinn not being super into it. Whomp whomp.
HIGH: Having an impromptu “beach” day instead!
LOW: Not discovering this wonderful little watering hole sooner!
HIGH: Qman’s face now that he’s front-facing in his car seat. It’s a whole new world for him!
