David was gone working from Tuesday through Saturday night, so I’ve been grateful for the phenomenal weather we’ve been having since we spent 99% of that time outside with friends.
We are fortunate to live near some really cool parks and know some really cool people that played with us until late in the day, leaving me only to scrub both the girls clean before calling it a night.
I decided to try and give Kaitlyn a good crib nap (which she refused) and bake breakfast at home on Saturday morning. I even busted out my first can of pumpkin for the occasion. Hailey sampled all the ingredients before deciding she loved flour the most and licked the measuring cups clean.
Whatever floats your boat kid!
She also helped me try to take decent pictures of our pumpkin cinnamon rolls to share with you soon. However, snapping pictures with a baby, a 3 year old and curious pup is no simple task. I’ll spare you the picture of spilled coffee, icing on the dog’s nose and a 5 month old that wanted to be in the shot, not bound to her exersaucer.
I had this great idea to fill the afternoon with a fall festival, so I dressed up the girls and attempted a family picture.
Swing and miss. Take two…
Eh, a career in family photography is clearly not in my future.
We headed out to a festival that ended up not existing, so we detoured to ‘downtown’ Davidson.
We hopped from playground to playground before deciding to grab dinner at The Pickled Peach, a new to me spot that I quickly fell in love with.
…and that wasn’t just the wine talking. Their kale caesar salad is incredible.
The girls were both so excited that daddy was home to play with on Sunday.
So was I because I totally kicked my feet up and took advantage of our unfinished back porch and David’s portable hammock for a legendary afternoon siesta.
After raving about our afternoon in Davidson the day before, we decided to try and recreate it, so after all our naps we headed back to Davidson for more playground fun and a walk around town.
We even returned to The Pickled Peach because I just needed David to try it. Plus, the had an amazing swing we took advantage of while waiting for our meal.
And just like that, the weekend was over.
Oh fall, I simply adore you.
Have you done anything fall-ish lately?
