This weekend was full of fun, friends, and family, complete with celebrations for our favorite Dads and very short naps all around. We celebrated my Dad’s birthday on Friday night, and our boy is still talking about Gramps’ birthday cake and “the best ice cream he ever had”. That kid loves dessert. My sweet husband got to spend his first Father’s Day as a daddy of two at home with us, which is a rare treat this time of year. We took the kids out to a late lunch, and finished the day with an afternoon swim with friends.
I’m not going to share our menu every single week, because I am no chef and I’m pretty sure I can hear you all yawning from wherever you are. But I will be continuing to meal plan. I will get organized this year if it kills me…and at this point I think it might. I am planning on making these Disneyland Dole Whips. They look amazing! Other meals for this week include these Creole Salmon Cakes and the Pioneer Woman’s chicken mozzarella pasta.
Bedtime is a disaster at our house these days. After dinner and baths, I wrestle the baby to sleep (literally wrestle…the girl does not like to sleep), I spend the next hour or two trying to convince our boy that he is in fact tired, and then reading books and laying in his bed while he clutches my arm and begs me not to go downstairs. He is such a little night owl, but a 9:30 pm bedtime for a two-year-old is ridiculous. You’d think I’d have this bedtime thing figured out almost three years in, right? Nope.
I started watching “The Americans” this week on Amazon Prime and I love it. Summer TV is the usually terrible, and it’s so nice to find new-to-me shows that are good. Are there any other shows I need to add to my summer watch list? I would love suggestions!
