Happy Weekend All! These past few days flew right on by! We started the weekend off right at our house- with lots and lots of time outside. Although it may be Fall, the desert decided to break out another round of 95 degree days. So naturally we hit the park in the early morning. The two mile trip with Raymond(The Toddler) on his bike, and Em and I on my bike and trailer goes by quickly. We play at the park until one of the kids ask to go OR I know there will be a need for a potty-break soon- we are now full-time in underwear during the day(CUE HAPPIEST DANCE EVER).
Afternoon playtime in the backyard called for chalk, sand turtle fun, AND sprinklers! Both of them giggled for an entire hour as we lived up what I am hoping is the last week in the 90s. The fence is wet in the background below because from time to time I rinse off their masterpieces(graffiti) for them to have a new blank canvas.
I love this age of sharing, caring about each other, and watching them play together.
Saturday morning we hit the park bright and early before I had to get ready to go to my first Creative Meet Ups by Crest + Bloom. I loved meeting all of the lovely ladies! All of the details were fabulous of this event; the food, the favors, and the fantastic surprises. There are so many wonderful women here in Phoenix and it was great to finally put a face to the name of people that I have followed(forever) on social media.
I truly cannot wait for the next event! If you are local you should check out Jennifer from Henry & Coco and Jenn from Sincerely Jenn– they’ve partnered up to create Crest + Bloom. I can’t wait to connect with the women I met in the next couple of weeks.
Saturday night I was extremely blessed to be invited to the Zinburger Pre-Opening in Gilbert. I was able to bring one of my best friends with and we dined on some of the best food I have had in a long, long time. Getting out without the babies and being able to share our mom problems is so nice. Being a mom is sometimes a very lonely struggle and I am happy that one of my college best friends has kids so close in age with mine. The Chuck Norris burger is one of their weekly burgers and it was the best burger I have ever eaten- and I am Queen of BBQ. Their weekly happy hour menu looks divine and I will be visiting again very soon.
We are carving pumpkins tonight and both toddlers are super excited! It remains to be seen if I’m the only one that cleans out the gunk…
Did you do anything fun this weekend?
Attend any Fall Festivals(MY FAV)?
Would love to hear from you!
