Weekend recap

We had an AWESOME weekend. It was one of those weekends where everything just clicked, we were super productive, and managed to squeeze in some family fun each day as well. My favorite kind of weekend!

Thursday after work (I work a shorter 7-8 hour shift on Thursdays) I picked up Marshall and took him to the Children's museum until it closed. We ended up getting a 3 month membership and have been going 1-3 times a week. He loves it and knows where everything is now.

Jerad has been trying to work 4 ten hour shifts (like I do) so that we can have Friday's off as a family. For the last few weeks he's ended up having to go in the office for a few hours but has pretty much been home the whole day. It's great! Friday morning I left the boys home and went and hung out with Beth for some girl time. Later Jerad, Marshall and I spent some time at the park, then managed to put a bunch of finishing touches on the nursery (pictures to follow eventually). Besides a few odds and ends all it really needs is a little baby Miller to fill it up! Marshall is obsessed with the crib. He hasn't been in a crib since he was 8 months old and we moved him to a floor bed so he thinks its some sort of toy. I put him inside it and he holds onto the rails and jumps up and down. Hilarious.

Saturday we went to the Pioneer Day Parade. Last year Marshall was little and wasn't totally into it. This year he was fascinated with all of the tractors, horses, bands, and heavy equipment.

I just went to find the blog of last year's parade and it looks like last year we spent the weekend doing basically the exact same thing we did this weekend. Park, Pioneer Parade, house projects, and pumpkin patch. How funny. 

Sunday we went to the San Marcos Pumpkin Farm. It was so much fun! There was a bounce house:


And the whole place just looked like a park. This is exactly the kind of place Jerad and I wanted to get married in and couldn't find, however I still don't think it beats Yosemite:)

Besides basically finishing the nursery, we also finished the covered dog area in the back yard, came up with a plan of how to renovate and revamp the upstairs kid's bathroom, organized our closet, planned a housewarming party, walked the dogs every day, cleaned almost all the blinds and went to bed Sunday night on clean sheets with all the bathrooms shining, kitchen cleaned, and floors vacuumed and mopped. The Perfect Way to start a new week!

Oh, and the best part; I put away all the laundry and have kept the fireplace laundry free for the last 4 days:)
