Meet the Sullivans: Weekending: Donuts, Superheros and Lizards

Weekending: Donuts, Superheros and Lizards

The hardest thing about Monday is undoubtedly re-rentry from the weekend! If we've had a fun-filled weekend I'm usually exhausted come Monday morning. This weekend was no different! We had so much going on and had a ton of fun!

Saturday we got up bright and early to get donuts and meet Keith's family at the park to celebrate my MIL's birthday. I picked up donuts from Apple Fritter -- the line was super long and it took me 40 minutes to get our donuts, but it was worth it.

We all had a nice time catching up and chatting over coffee and donuts and bagels, playing football and lizard hunting!

Owen caught at least three baby lizards! He's getting really great at catching them, which is hard, because they are fast. I'm amazed by how brave he is with them because I definitely don't feel like I would hold one at all. Let's not even talk about last weekend when he caught one in the backyard and brought it in the house...

Saturday afternoon after lunch we dropped the boys off at my SILs so we could go sign our contracts! We also got to see some of the progress they've been making on our home. The framing of the bottom floor and garage are up! Keith and I are busy on Pinterest trying to make some of the final decisions on the finishes for our home because our choices are due at the end of October. I'm glad I don't have too many choices to make because I'm already struggling to stick with something!

Afterward we took the boys out for dinner at Armadillo Willy's, which was much more successful and less stressful than it usually is. Lukey did really well with his dinner and LOVED having some of my brisket and corn bread.

Before dinner we did a quick walk through of the Halloween store. Last year Owen was all about the scary stuff in the store and couldn't get enough of it, but this year he was covering his eyes and ended up wanting to leave. He even said he doesn't ever want to go back. It's interesting how much young children change in a year. I think he is quite a bit more cautious, sensitive to his feelings and aware than he was a year ago. Poor guy!

We spent Sunday morning hanging around in our pj's and drinking coffee and playing.

In the afternoon we went to our friends' superhero birthday party! All the kids dressed up as super hero and even some of the adults! It was a pretty hot day, so I'm glad Owen wasn't wearing a full superhero costume because he would have been dripping in sweat. He was thrilled to have his Captain America shield and mask. How happy does he look?! He had just woken up from a 10 minute car nap.

We were the "no fun" parents who didn't dress up.  There aren't many costumes out there for nursing moms!

We dressed Lukey up as Superman and it was the cutest thing ever to see him crawling around wearing a little cape! 

After the party we swung by Best Buy to check out some refrigerators and surround sound systems, and then Costco for some groceries. I love that I can get at least three dinners checked off my list when we go to Costco! We picked up a pizza, their stuffed peppers, spaghetti squash, broccoli and some other things. 

How was your weekend?
