our week by iPhone - week 79

remember all that talk about slowing down & enjoying moments?  i really honestly tried to do that this week.  there was lots of time in the sun & time with friends & good moments to enjoy... but you know what that leads to?  catching up on everything else later on!

yeah, turns out when you spend your day playing in the sun, nobody does your laundry, dishes or grocery shopping for you.  so much for slowing down!  i still feel like this whole week was catch up.

here's what it looked like in iPics.

monday hit 80 degrees & meant stroller strides out in the warm sun.  we came home & had friends over for sprinklers & popsicles... pretty much perfect.

tuesday.  another sunny day, another workout in short sleeves.  parker was into the big slides & sidewalk chalk afterwards but even more into our dinner picnic on the back porch that night.

wednesday was my day in the office this week so i drove a cute little boy to his sitter's & slapped on another shirt + cardi combo.  it's my maternity go-to.  a post-work pedicure made the day a little better but picking up this happy little boy from "the cider mill" with his sitter made the day awesome.

parker was equally happy to see sam back at home & equally adorable as a sprawled out sleepy little boy. 

thursday.  drove home a cute giggly little boy from some time at his friend's & watched him scribble on his toy-box-blackboard back at home with sam.  yup, that definitely says "parker {hearts} mommy."  and then my heart melted into a big fat puddle.

speaking of big fat things, i topped off the night with some of my homemade cream cheese frosting slopped over one of sam's homemade cinnamon rolls.  so that was cool.

friday.  parker had a lunch date with lots & lots of giggling & plate biting.  it's their thing... i don't ask questions.  also?  dinner at costco.  because we're classssy.  where else can you feed your whole family on four dollars with drinks & dessert included?

saturday we made up for our awesomely healthy friday-night dinner at costco by going for a five mile walkabout at a local wildlife refuge.  parker loved the birds & the bugs & the endless boardwalk that made for a pretty awesome place to run.  and then we undid all the good of walking with dinner at red robin.  ah well.

  2. Aww! Great pictures Amy! Love them all, as per usual :)

  3. oh my gosh..that cinnamon roll is making drool all over my laptop!!!

  4. Um, homemade cinnamon roll + cream cheese frosting? Yes, please! Probably way better than the canned ones we do. Recipe?!

  5. It looks like you had a very, very good week for sure : ) Lots of fun and happy moments! The ever day ones are the best, aren't they?

  6. Ummm...can we trade weeks please?? I want to do all that fun stuff, mostly the popsicles and playdates. Andrew's done with MDO starting this week so I'm going to schedule some good, fun down time. :)

  7. It seems like your pregnancy is just flying by!

  8. Your boys are so adorable and so sweet. What a cute message - I swooned when i saw it on instagram. I really do wish that someone came over and did all your chores when you took a day off.

  9. Parker's smile keeps getting bigger & bigger! And now I want a cinnamon roll with cream cheese. mmmm

  10. Where is that wildlife refuge? It looks like you are in Montana!

  11. Dude. We are all over the Costco dinner too. Seriously, I have THREE SONS. They eat a boat load of food. And also? I'm classy too:)
