Weekend Shenannies

We were busy, busy bees this weekend...our last weekend in Birmingham.

Between the packing and cleaning, we met our cousins for dinner Saturday night. Charlie sat in a high chair for the first time. I tried to feed him store bought baby food, so we could use when we're moving and traveling. He was less than impressed. Glad to know he appreciates my hard work making baby food.

This is a pile of junk we've drug down to the street for garbage pick up. It also included a grill with a ton of rust, and a patio table and chairs that were in pieces. Then we sat inside and watched people pick through our junk. I knew someone would take the table and grill. Classic!

It's amazing how much junk you accumulate in just a year and half! Nice to not have to haul this stuff back with us.

(Sidenote: I've had this terrible pain on my side, near my rib. Feels like a bruised rib, but I have no recollection of injurying it. My working theory is that the hubs punched me in my sleep. His wrist hurts. That's all the evidence I need. There's no way it could be from all the hauling and moving we're doing. No. Way.)

Sunday, my first official Mother's Day, was lots of fun. Charlie and Josh made me a scrapbook of pics of Charlie and I. This is my favorite picture from the gift giving. The greatest gift!

We did our weekly grocery shopping, then Josh surprised me with tickets to a Baron's game. They got a new stadium this year, and I've really wanted to go before we move. I thought that ship had sailed, so it was a nice surprise!

Beer in the stroller.

 Such a great break from the moving madness. Unfortunately, this kid seems to have some intense allergies. He looks like he's crying when we are outside for any extended amount of time. He loved the game though. After the game, he fell asleep before we were even out of the parking lot.

We also tried out the mesh feeder this weekend. That thing is a hot mess!

So fun to celebrate my first mother's day. Love this card from daycare! Can't wait for all of these things I'm going to receive over the years!

Happy Mother's Day!


  1. Oh how cute is that card?! I am so excited for daycare gifts too - they seem so thoughtful!
    Those darn garbage diggers eh? Haha! We had a 'giveaway' weekend here that just passed - everyone puts stuff on the curb and people take it! Some of the stuff people take blows me away...most of it is garbage. Just silly.
    Sweet little family picture at the game, and so great that he seemed to love it!

    1. LOVED all your comments! Cracking me up!

  2. Happy Mother's Day! The photo of Charlie in the gift bag is precious!

    1. Thanks lady! Happy Mother's Day to you, too!
