Good morning! How are you guys today? This blog post might be a bit of a flyby post because I want to check in and share a bit about our weekend with you but I’m also anxious to get back to my mom and sister and soak up all the time I can with them before Leslie leaves this afternoon. (My mom is staying through next weekend!)
We’ve had such a good time together and one thing is quite clear… Chase absolutely adores his grandma and Aunt Leslie!
Here’s a peek into our weekend:
- Gymboree Fun
My mom and sister were dying to check out Gymboree with Chase after hearing me rave about it and we all attended an afternoon class on Friday. As always, it was an absolute riot! They got a kick out of seeing the babies play and squeal and we laughed a lot at the goofy songs and Chase’s oh-so-serious concentration faces.
- Sister Workout
One thing I love about my sister is her willingness to try any kind of workout with me! She’s always up for doing something active and jumped at the chance to take a Saturday morning Burn Boot Camp class. We went through a full-body circuit and she loved it which made me happy since I am clearly a BBC super fan. After our workout, we met back up with my mom and Chase and spent the rest of the morning outside, walking around the neighborhood and enjoying the gorgeous Charlotte sunshine.
- Chase’s New Wardrobe Additions
My mom always comes to visit with some little surprises for Chase up her sleeve. When Leslie and I arrived home from our workout on Saturday, my mom had Chase sporting the cutest little bowtie! It was so adorable and we couldn’t stop laughing at our dapper little man. She also gave him the sweetest little footie outfit and came with a bunch of new books to read from their local library. Grandmas are the best!
- Vanilla Sugar Lattes
After church on Sunday, my mom, Leslie, Chase and I drove into the city to walk around and stop by Not Just Coffee at the 7th Street Public Market for vanilla sugar lattes. Not Just Coffee knows how to make vanilla sugar lattes perfectly… Not too sweet with just the perfect punch of vanilla flavor. They’re the best!
- Hilarious Bath Time Adventures with Angry Chase
I texted Ryan this picture of “Angry Chase” immediately after we took it because it made me laugh so hard and he said he thinks he showed it to at least 30 people during his time in Las Vegas. (Apparently that is what inebriated dads do in Vegas? Haha!) Chase is always such a character during his baths and runs through a million difference facial expressions but this angry baby face was a new one that absolutely cracked us up!
- Lots of Sadie Love
Sadie has been soaking up a ton of extra love from my mom and sister this weekend and loving every second of it. We’ve spent a decent amount of time playing with her outside, cuddling her on the couch and giving her lots of attention. I don’t think her tail has stopped wagging since my mom and sister arrived!
Aaand now I’m off to enjoy every last second I have with my sister before she heads home to Florida. I hope you guys have a wonderful Monday!!
