Weekend Recap

This weekend was busy one minute and slow the next. Our busy, jam packed weekends are numbered though so I didn't really mind.

Friday night we visited with Danny's dad and stepmom for a bit. Well, Danny and I did. Tucker slept in one of the chairs the whole time, and also the entire way to grab Taco Bell and back. It only pushed bedtime back by about an hour so I didn't mind. I actually fell asleep in bed with him.

Saturday was the busy day! We took off at 7:30 to pick up my sister-in-law and her girls so we could all head to the circus in Fort Wayne! Danny's grandpa treated the family to tickets. I had never been to the circus so I was pretty excited. I mean, I spent the first half messing with Tucker's $5 sno-cone and praying he didn't see the vendors with the light up swords. We got there early so we could take the kids to see the animals. Tucker told his aunt he wanted to ride a camel while I was in the bathroom. He quickly changed his mind once he saw how big they were, but then wanted to ride the elephant. The cost $5 more, so I talked him into the pony and it worked. He doesn't look like he enjoyed it, but he did say he had fun.

I knew I would shell out the money for the elephant ride and we'd get to the top of the steps and he'd change his mind. Plus I don't think my 8 months pregnant self needed to be sitting on an elephant.

The circus was pretty cool. A little long for Tucker's attention span and mine even. He was asking if it was time to go yet before intermission even started. He enjoyed certain parts though and almost fell asleep towards the end while the lights were mostly off. We both had a great time at our first circus!

When we got home, we relaxed for a few and then painted a little bit. He found some things from my stash of fun stuff I've been buying to keep him busy after Charlee arrives. 

Shortly after getting cleaned up, we took off to visit Danny at work and go have dinner with my mom, brother and other sister-in-law. Thankfully Tucker slept the entire way home and through the transition from car to bed. I went to bed to watch Gilmore Girls as soon as we got home.

Sunday was the slow day. Danny got home from work late and Tucker and I were lazy all morning. I made a meal plan, ordered groceries and got laundry going while he played and watched TV. Once Danny got home, I worked on Charlee's room a bit, got dinner going, straightened the house some and then laid down in bed for a bit. I couldn't sleep due to the screaming toddler and bladder punching baby, but it was nice to lay in bed for an hour. After I got up we headed to pick up groceries so Tucker would nap. He was insane and that usually happens around nap time. The late nap bit us in the ass though so I almost wish we could have just suffered through it. I tried to relax as much as I could when we got home since I had probably done more than I should have this weekend.

Now its Monday and I have my first NST this afternoon. It should provide the opportunity to get close to finishing a book I've been reading since the end of August!
