Memorial Day Weekend + Summer Fun List

Wow!  It’s so crazy to think this is the last day of May.  We had a great weekend, but it admittedly did not go exactly according to plans due to the rainy weather from a tropical storm off the coast.  Saturday was a great, sunny day.  We enjoyed a very brief visit to the beach.

I also got a manicure/pedicure, but I was pretty unexcited about it.  The weather was so nice.  I would have rather stayed at the beach!


I got to finish a really good book on Saturday…


Sunday was slightly eventful to say the least!  Everything started off nice and easy.  I decided to stay home from church since we would be having a visit from Poppy and Moochie soon.  I was out on the deck doing a little HIIT workout when the Mr. brought me Little H with no explanation!  Just take the baby!  When we went back inside, I realized that Holden was throwing up.  😦   Apparently, he threw up in his bed, and the Mr. was trying to get him cleaned up and…yeah, he threw up some more.  This continued for quite some time.  Eventually, he was able to sleep for a bit.  Moochie and Poppy were already on their way over for the baseball fun, so they kept on coming!  Holden perked up when they got here.  After the grown-ups had some lunch, he said he felt up to going to the game.  Off we went!  Then, the sprinkles started and became big fat raindrops once we were in the stadium.


I was super excited to be out with these guys!  Unfortunately, it was short-lived.  The game was officially cancelled a little over a half-hour from the original start time.  We’ll have to try again!

Since the weather was officially cramping our Sunday plans, my mom and I hunted (literally, we had to hunt!) down a coffeehouse open on a rainy Sunday afternoon.  We ended up at Bad Ass Coffee.


P.S. My mother is always on-point with her attire.  Please notice her patriotic themed outfit.  She also had a match purse.  I will never be that grown-up.

She said her coffee was good.  I had the decaf which was good, but it did taste like it had been made for quite some time.  The hazard of drinking decaf!

We enjoyed hot dogs, baked beans, corn on the cob, salad, and berry trifle for dessert.  It’s always so nice to have my mommy and daddy visit.  🙂

Monday was rainy!  Again!  We did get a walk in with all children – furry paws, big boy feet, and baby toes.  A Trader Joe’s trip also happened as well as a gym/Wal-Mart visit for me.  Holden watched a ton of TV this weekend with the classics, Jungle Book and Dumbo, to round out his viewing pleasure.  Even though it was rainy, it is always nice to hang out with my favorite people.  Seriously though….the sun!  Come out and stay out why don’t you!?!?

Last Wednesday, I went on a field trip with Big H’s class to a farm/strawberry patch.  So much fun!  However, also so much NOISE on the bus with all those kids!

Although it isn’t particularly sunny today, I do have summer on my mind.  Here’s our list from last summer…

  • Sprinkler time
  • Sidewalk Chalk
  • Visiting all the Eastern Shore family
  • Color Me Pottery {paint your own!}
  • Children’s Museum in Portsmouth, VA
  • Brickheadz {Lego Play Center}
  • Norfolk Zoo
  • Farmer’s Market
  • Jamestown Visit
  • Visiting Granny (& Auntie Brookie and Uncle Michael)
  • Fishing Trip for Daddy, Big H, and Poppy
  • Baseball Game – Try, try, try again at this one!
  • Beach – Hopefully, we may even try some quick trips with me and the two H’s.
  • 4th of July Parade – Holden loved being in the parade last year.  We’re looking forward to doing it again!
  • Swimming Lessons
  • Library Visits
  • Little H’s Baptism
  • 1 night getaway for me and the Mr. in July – It will be the first night away from kids since Little H’s arrival!
  • Play Dates with new and old friends
  • Ziplining Date with the Mr. at The Adventure Park

I’m so excited about all these things!  My personal goals for June include

  • Put together easel and little table for Holden to use this summer
  • Develop a little summer schedule for Big H’s days at home {He will be attending summer camp starting in July MWF for half days.} with some fun activities
  • Read 3 books!
  • Take Holden on a Mommy – Son date
  • Run outside once a week

I’m going to be busy!  Hopefully, half this gets done.  We’re going to have a great summer with our newest addition.  🙂  Hope you are having a great Tuesday!
