Our Easter Weekend part 1

Happy Monday everyone! This past weekend was so much fun, I'm sad it's over. But luckily the weather is still nice, and so far I have stuck to my to-do list, so things are looking good! Here's what we were up to this weekend:

On Saturday morning our church had an Easter brunch, so I cut up a watermelon (using this watermelon slicer which is seriously a game changer) and sliced up some strawberries, and we drove on over to the park! The weather was seriously idyllic. With spring weather in the 70s, I would spend all day outside if I could. They had a little Easter Egg Hunt after the brunch, and I wasn't sure how Nathan would respond to it, but once he got the idea he was pretty excited about it! After the egg hunt we took a short walk. Then when it was clear Nathan was really ready for a nap, we went home and put him down. After which, I got to spend the afternoon shopping with my cute friend Whitney for a belated birthday celebration! It has been SO LONG since I've been shopping with a friend, it was really nice. That evening we decided to have a picnic for dinner and it was really super windy, so it wasn't extremely fun, just semi-fun. All in all, a very productive yet relaxing Saturday.

^^ This is Nathan's face when he doesn't understand why we are standing in a large field instead of playing at the park.^^

^^ This is his look of acceptance. He has a hard life.^^

^^ Really getting the hang of things.^^

Nathan's new favorite words to say to me are, "Mom! Go! Walk!" He always wants to be walking. But sometimes his little legs get tired and he wants me to carry him. He's getting really heavy.

Also he started saying small sentences this past weekend as well! I was talking to a neighbor I hadn't met before and Nathan was highly suspicious of her (she was SO NICE), so he was clinging to my legs and he said, "Mom. I wanna go back." Clear as day. It was a little unnerving to be honest.

And then yesterday I said, "Do you want a drink?" And he said, "No. I want Dada." And he ran over to Alex and cuddled in his lap.

If that's not a heart melter, I don't know what is!

And now I've realized that this post is long, so we'll do an Easter part two sometime later this week.

How was your weekend?
