weekday recap - {in iPhone pics} w.34

whoa.  where the heck did this week go?  it's all a fuzzy blur of holiday-summery-goodness.  let's relive it, shall we?

spoil alert:  something major happens on friday.

monday was the fourth of july & we celebrated in true parent style.  sam wanted to do some yard work {go crazy!} so parker & i went for a run.  don't feel bad for him, i cleaned the inside of the house beforehand.  we're all about equal opportunity around here.

after the our house was all ship-shaped, we headed to a fourth of july festivus where we picnicked in the grass to eat bbq & frozen bananas.  we found ourselves on an impromtu hike when we chose to take a "shortcut" back to the car so we could make it in time to our fro-yo place before they closed.  we made it & it was delicious.

then parker slept through the sounds of WWIII while sam & i watched fireworks displays on tv.  turns out watching fireworks on tv is actually awesome because you can rewind the finale & relive it.  can't do that live, suckas.

tuesday started with a mini-hike & playdate with some of our besties.  the weather was amazing & we had to be outside in it.  then we headed to costco for some essentials {ie: razors, otter pops, & string cheese.  you know, the staples.}

it was an all around good day.  my little guy is so much fun to be around lately & i truly enjoy everyday we get to just hang out together.  and side note on that last picture: i'm not that skinny.  i promise there is more belly hiding behind parker's juicy thigh.

wednesday.  if you follow me on instagram {which, if you have an iPhone you totally should... amy_agoodlife. find me & say hi!} you saw a similar picture posted, only it included abs.  you guys?  i'm feeling good.  i'm feeling like i'm finally back on track in my health & fitness stuffs.  look forward to some future wellness posts.

and bonus points if you noticed p-ray's cute little face poking up above the counter.

it was a gorgeous day.  we spent lots of time out in the sun & even hit up some more fro-yo.  yeah, we may have a slight addiction.  once parker was in his pj's & ready for bed i took off for a girl's night.  nothing like talk of diapers & boob size fluctuations over some half price apps to make you realize you're not alone in this crazy thing called motherhood.

i was stuck in some construction on the way to work & decided to commemorate a good-hair-day by waving "good morning" to my instagram friends {seriously, are you on instagram yet?  you should be, it's pretty much my favorite ap.}  we had a picnic potluck at work & i provided the green salad.  i'm telling you guys, i'm being super healthy.

back at home parker played all day with the babysitter & did cute things like get gobs of food in his hair while signing "all-done!"  it's so cute i don't even care about the sticky hairs.

thursday night consisted of a campfire, s'mores, & a ridiculously cute sleeping baby.  'nuff said.

friday morning parker had plenty of time to hang out in his pj's & get into mischief before stroller strides since he was up at like 7:00.  that's early for us!  ick.  we hit up some target after stroller strides where parker nommed on some squeezy pouches & half my pretzel.  he's definitely his mother's son... the kid can put away some serious pretzel.

i couldn't resist this shirt, "Everything I know I learned on The Street."  ummm, cute right?  i thought so.

we had another campfire friday night where i hit up round two on the s'mores.  and here's the crazy part... parker WALKED all over the place.  i can't reveal too much, this is obviously a post in itself.  so there's the teaser.

some late night skyping with blogger friends wrapped up a pretty amazing week.  and now i'm ready for an even amazing-er weekend!
