What a week! We’ve had gorgeous sunny weather and fun, busy days. Thanks to Meghan from Clean Eats Fast Feets for hosting another Week in Review! Here’s how it all went down:
It was Katie’s 12th birthday on Wednesday but we celebrated it on Monday. I picked her up from her dad’s and we drove out to Langley, dropped Callum off at my friend Kristen’s house and then Katie and I went out for lunch to Moxie’s.
After we picked up Callum from Kristen’s (he loves it there, loves her and her daughter), we picked up my niece and my mom and brought them back home. Katie chose spaghetti for her birthday meal so I made that with meatballs, ceasar salad and garlic bread and we had Dairy Queen ice cream cake for dessert. Jake and his girlfriend came for dinner too, so that was awesome!
I kept my phone recording after the cake and managed to capture Callum yelling “boobies” and “pajina” at the table. Everyone got the giggles which made Callum say it even more. Preschool is going to be interesting this Fall.
On Katie’s actual birthday, I brought her home a sprinkles donut and stuck a candle in it. Here’s a photo of the two of us at a wedding a few days/weeks after she was born twelve years ago!
Katie and Freddy went to Jason’s on Wednesday and they left for their annual Oroville, WA trip with his whole family. I won’t see them for nearly two weeks! It’s always really hard to say goodbye but I know they’re having lots of fun.
I met Lora for a 9 mile run and we geeked out as usual while trying to take a selfie.
I got up early on Friday and went for an 8 mile run and then worked for a few hours on Andrew’s mail-outs. It was on my list of things to do before the baby comes. Oh! I also put together the baby swing and rock ‘n play and packed my hospital bags. Then Friday night, my sister Tracey told me that her boyfriend Jim is racing his Mustang at the race track so Andrew and I took Callum over there to watch some car races! I had never been, and it was SO much fun!
Andrew had two open houses on the weekend so I took Callum to my parent’s pool. For some reason he’s so nervous of the water but he’s getting better! I’ll have to keep going with him to get him used to it.
Sunday was a super productive day. I ran again in the morning and then crossed off a bunch of things on my to-do-before-baby arrives list. Then Andrew’s parents babysat Callum while we went on a date!
Did you ever get to choose a special dinner for your birthday?
I’d always choose spaghetti just because I knew most kids liked it–I never really cared much for food. If I could choose chocolate and Doritos, I would have, but I don’t think my mom would have went for it.
Have you ever been to car races?
