Weekend Recap | Is that a duck on our lawn?

Monday, April 20, 2015

Hello there!

Our weekend was hands-down the best.  Our sweet little boy was dedicated at church and the rest of the weekend was full of family fun in the sun.  But why am I yapping?  Let me show you in pictures:

Ready for dedication!
Ryan had the sweetest outfit on that his great-grandmother (our Nannie) mailed him.  It was perfect and he looked like a little angel.

You are fearfully and wonderfully made.
The ceremony was wonderful and I got a little choked up.  Ryan was a character though.  He was yelling "yay" and clapping hands after other families did their dedications.  And then when it was his turn and we were on the stage, he wanted to be Mr. Showman and walk all around the stage.  What am I getting myself into with this one?

After church on Sunday, we did our Costco run and Ryan took his trusty dino backpack with him.  This Skip Hop dino backpack has seriously been the best.  I use it now as his diaper bag so that I don't have to lug the large bulky bag around.  It holds his toys, a few diapers, and a few other essentials (his books).  Ryan loves his little bag.  

When we pulled into our driveway from Costco, we had some guests that surprised us with a visit.  Mr. and Mrs. Duck came by.  Ryan was ECSTATIC but I am still trying to figure out, why our lawn?  There is no water, we have not dropped bread out there, and I certainly did not tell Russell we needed another pet.  

I snapped a few pics and let Ryan get semi-close, but as soon as we were going to let Buddy play with them (hehehe), they decided to fly away.  Darn, I was looking forward to a duck chase.  I am not trying to be mean, and I love ducks, but Buddy needed a little exercise and I wanted a good laugh :)

Then my toddler, who thinks he is grown, tried to escape the house.

caught ya!

So to settle the toddler rage that followed when I moved him from the door, we went on a wagon ride.  FYI, my child is OBSESSED with his wagon.  This was his 1st birthday gift from us and he walks right over to it every night requesting a ride.

Since Buddy didn't get to exercise with the ducks, we took him with us on our stroll.

Buddy looks like he is being choked here...he isn't, he is just being dramatic.

When we got back from our stroll, daddy was planting flowers so Ryan joined in for a lesson.  Russell is on a three week break from his MBA program so we got daddy all to ourselves ALL WEEKEND!

Life lessons from daddy

Can I help?



I am going to end my recap with this instant heart melt....

I can't get enough of this photo and my Schwartz boys.  I love them so much.  It was so nice to have a weekend with BOTH of my boys.



Anything exciting happen on your weekend?

Looking forward to anything in particular this week?
