a gift from the stork
Hi buddies! Happy Monday! I’m hoping your week is off to a nice get started.
Guess what?! Baby August is right here!
The climate on Friday was once cloudy and funky; I informed my mother it was once the very best day to have a child, now not in reality considering it might be “the day” that August was once born. I used to be SO excited after I were given the textual content with a image of him whilst we had been out rock mountain climbing with buddies. Kyle and Meg had been handiest at the health facility for 2 hours sooner than he arrived! I spent the remainder of the afternoon with the hugest smile on my face, figuring out that he was once in the end right here and that everybody was once secure. I couldn’t wait to satisfy him (!) however I had promised the ladies that we’d pass to a pageant at Liv’s faculty sooner than hightailing it to the health facility.
We performed video games, were given their faces painted, and loved the pageant for a couple of hours,
after which the Pilot took them house for mattress whilst I picked up sushi and occasional for Kyle and Meg, and headed to the health facility.
It was once so great to hang around with Kyle and Meg for a bit, pay attention about the superb beginning tale (Meg is a champion) and snuggle with August. He seems JUST like EJ, and is the sweetest little man. I really like him such a lot already and will’t wait to spend extra time with him. The ladies are going to move loopy for him! I headed house simply in time to observe a little Queer Eye – I’ve been savoring the closing episode for a few weeks, handiest looking at five mins right here and there – and crash out.
Saturday morning, we had been up brilliant and early, so we had breakfast in combination and headed to the dance studio. After dance, we were given some extra provides for the yard lawn. The Pilot reseeded the grass whilst the ladies and I planted plants, together with a lawn mattress stuffed with tomatoes, basil, cucumber, rosemary, carrots, zucchini, and mint. We’ll see what finally ends up surviving. 😉 I additionally took a 45-minute reside DJ Peloton trip that was once liiiiiiife.
Saturday night time, madre came to visit to hang around with the ladies for a bit whilst the Pilot and I went out for a little date.
We ordered beverages and a huge cheese board + the well-known goat cheese tart (should you ever pass to Commoner, it’s important to get this tart)
and made a run to Target. It’s the final dad or mum date when a Target prevent is integrated. 😉 It was once so great to get Easter basket provides firstly was once utterly picked over. After Target, we made a prevent at Cashew Cow for vegan ice cream and dropped some off to Kyle and Meg sooner than making it again house in time to place the nuggets to mattress.
Sunday morning, we slept in (YAS) after which went on a circle of relatives stroll in Sabino Canyon. It was once completely very best out of doors (in the 70s) and such a lot of of the vegetation and cacti are blooming!
We spent about 40 mins strolling one among the shorter trails. The ladies sprinted out and backs in between getting piggyback rides, and it felt so nice to get some sunshine and recent air.
After our nature day out, I took the staff to peer The Missing Link whilst the Pilot were given in some airline finding out. I want I may just let you know it was once a riveting, captivating and relaxing film, however P fell asleep about 15 mins into it, and it misplaced my consideration round that time. I finished up studying a guide on my telephone the complete time. (No one was once round us, so I grew to become the brightness method down and tucked my telephone into my backpack to learn.) It is going to turn that Hugh Jackman can’t all the time save the day, however Liv cherished it, so there ya pass.
The Pilot took the ladies on the weekly grocery run whilst I typed up maximum of this weblog submit + a couple of upcoming WebMD weblog posts, after which we made massive chopped salads for dinner together with Instant Pot candy potatoes.
(I really like how Caro is smiling on this image! The salad had romaine, spinach, grilled rooster, cucumber, pink bell peppers, blackberries, blueberries, dates, Primal Kitchen ranch and was once combined up in a massive blending bowl.)
This is one among my all-time favourite easy dinners, and the ladies like selecting their salad parts. I took my salad with me to move since I used to be selecting Nana as much as be my date for the traveling manufacturing of Fiddler On the Roof. Fiddler is a kind of vintage musicals that can all the time have a particular position in my middle. I fell in love with musical theatre round after I noticed the film model for the first time, and it was once one among the first displays we did in center faculty. This manufacturing was once particularly glorious and I really like how the actor who performed Tevye in reality made the function his personal. The dancing BLEW ME AWAY; it felt very conventional with little shoulder shakes and wrist motion, however had some fashionable parts in there, too. It was once so, so excellent. The voices, the performing, the set, the costumes… the entirety.
