We lucked out with some beautiful weather this weekend. Since Andrew arrived home mid-week, and we were both exhausted and in quite a funk on Thursday and Friday, we decided to have a very low-key weekend. Plus, Oliver’s third birthday is tomorrow (!) and my mom sent this awesome joint b-day present for all three of the boys– a play house!
It took Andrew the better part of a morning to put together, but he was determined. We didn’t time it quite right to completely surprise the boys, but man were they excited to watch this thing go up.
We also walked to Winslow’s Home for dinner on Friday and went for a nice long walk in Forest Park yesterday. But that’s it! Here are some photos from the weekend.
These guys have eaten every single meal inside their house since it went up on Saturday afternoon. They are completely obsessed.
Lunch on a stump.
All in all I consider it a success. I have a few projects going on around here (trying to figure out how to turn a few stumps into side tables, if you have any suggestions– and not the old cracked one above! and trying out a few new recipes– including -gasp- homemade cheddar pie crust which I am deathly afraid of messing up). But Andrew’s making the planet cake that Oliver asked for, and I’m sure it will be delicious!
Thanks, Grandma, for the awesome house! The boys love it!
