Last week was Jon's spring
break and we spent the entire week doing nothing but adjusting to the
new routine of taking care of two boys and it was wonderful. I
got a nap most of the days, we ran a few errands, Jon and I had a date
night with our tiny third wheel and the week went by so fast that I
honestly am having trouble remembering everything we did!
spent Friday at the zoo. We hadn't been in forever and so when we told
Nathan on Thursday night that we were planning on going there in the
morning, he was SO EXCITED that he could barely stand it and by 7:15 the
next morning, he had dressed himself to go:
Backpack and all! Ha!
finally got there and he was just beside himself with joy. I've never
seen him so excited to be there - the weeks of being cooped up in the
house with Baby Parker's birth have taken a toll on my active boy, I
Parker spent most of the zoo like this. :)
This kept Jon and I in stitches the whole day - he had packed a tiny, keychain
pretend camera that was a stocking stuffer this last year in his
backpack and he pulled it out at every exhibit to take pictures and then
he'd stuff it back in his pocket. SO funny - I was dying.
This little smiley boy finally woke up for about twenty minutes. ;)
did it up right since it had been so long since we were there, so Jon
and Nathan got ice cream and then we went on a train ride. :)
Then it was Easter! We went to the sunrise service, I cried
through most of it, we packed up baskets and everything Easter-related
and headed to Gammy and Pops' house. One of my boys was VERY excited
about his basket.
The other wasn't too impressed.
hunting. :) That's all I've heard about for the last few days since.
"Remember when we went egg hunting Mama? That was REALLY FUN."
week has been all about figuring out our new routine, finding out how
long it takes to go places (we have yet to break the 2 hours and 15
minutes mark when it's just me and the boys from when we start getting
ready) and learning how to live on very little sleep and still function
during the day. I feel like I'm in survival mode a lot of the days and I
hate that feeling so I'm very ready to get back into a schedule!!
