{week + end rewind}

 Happy Tuesday! It seems like last Monday was a long time ago, we've been busy! Rewinding back....I took Monday off because I knew coming home from Vegas and having my long week would kill me with having no time with the kids. Delainey still had preschool but it gave us time to hangout in the morning and all afternoon - much needed. When I picked her up from preschool we headed south because I HAD to get some puppy snuggles from this sweet face. Dust & Whit added this little beauty to their family the day we left for Vegas and I didn't want to miss Willa's puppy breath! She is beyond adorable!

We had lunch and the kids did crafts and played while Whit and I visited and snuggled/played with Willa {and of course some Huck slobbery cuddles too}.

Ryder and Willa are best buds.

That night I snuck out for dinner with some of the Blog Squad ladies to say goodbye to Leslie who is moving to Texas! :(

My parents gave the kids these new mitts for Valentine's Day and they are awesome {they are super long with elastic in 2 places and can be worn under or over the coat}! So we had to try them out on our walk and then make a snow family {who melted the next day}.

 The kids had a cupcake after dinner for Valentine's. Clearly Ryder enjoyed his.

We had some incredible weather days and this kid LOVES stomping in puddles. Our walks took forever but they were so happy. Delainey is so cute always cheering Ryder on.

Thursday morning Delainey started back at gymnastics. Poor Ry is 2 months too young to do the parented class with me just yet and it pretty much broke his heart that D ran off to her class and he had to head upstairs with me. Thankfully his sadness was short lived and he enjoyed watching Delainey.
She did so well following directions and staying on task, I was super impressed. The best part was at the end of class when she realized her coaches weren't giving out stamps so she went and plopped herself on to another coaches lap who WAS giving out stamps!

After class we got our workout in doing the stairs over and over!

That afternoon was incredible! So we enjoyed an extra long walk. Ryder does so well on our walks, he walks the whole time.

Thursday night my parents and Jeff & Jolie came to my Surfset class! It was so awesome {& nerve wracking} having them all there but I so appreciate them coming and seeing why I love it so much.

Friday morning D didn't have preschool as it was Teachers Convention so we met up with Brie, Sully & Emmy for some play time at Flip Factory. Ryder was in heaven and didn't stop running and trying to keep up with Delainey who was just fluttering off doing her own thing.

She was SO excited to see Sully and meet up with him and then hardly said a word to him or stuck with him to play! Toddlers.

It was pretty darn busy and I felt like I needed an extra set of eyes and arms but everyone had fun and it was nice to chat with Brie as much as we could while running after children!
Another beautiful afternoon walk. Delainey "walked her dog" for most of the walk until Ryder had enough, ;)

I love that Ryder wants to hold hands for walks now {after about 5 minutes of running}. 

That night we went to Jeff and Jolie's for a delicious dinner {steak & crab! yum} to celebrate my Dad's 60th birthday. It seems like a long time since we had a family dinner so it was great to be together.

Saturday we took a trip to the mall as we needed to look for a few gifts. We had no luck other than for Justin. We popped into Banana Republic as it was 50% off the entire store and he has been looking for a plain black dress shirt. Well he also found nice pair of dress pants, a black dress shirt AND a wool pea coat all for $100. The jacket was originally $240 and marked down to $60 and 50% off plus I had a 15% off coupon in an email. Start the car!!! ha

Sunday morning skittle fun! And Ryder did not think this was fun. He just wanted to eat the skittles, not watch the damn rainbow. :)

We got the kids down for an early nap as we had a birthday party that afternoon for Audrey & Leo.The theme was Unicorns and Dinos so I was pretty excited their tops from Portage and Main were perfect!

The kids had a great time - crafts, treats, snacks and friends! They also had a mini broom that Ryder thought was the best thing ever. Nicole threw a great party as always.

On our way home from the party we picked Lily up for a sleepover. Delainey & Lil had fun dressing up & coloring together.

We had a  had a low key family day as it was pretty chilly and couldn't make a decision on what to do plus Lily and Delainey just wanted to "chill". So after Lily left and the kids napped we headed out to grab a few groceries and for Froyo. Always a good idea.

It was nice to be home and have lots of family time this weekend, plus I only work 1 day this week!

I can't get over how much Ryder has turned into a little boy!
Little adventurers on the ravine walks!

Thanks again for coming to the party! Glad everyone had fun! Ryder can clean up my house any day with the broom!

That's nice that your family came to your surf set class! I can see how that would be nerve wracking for you but I am sure you did an amazing job. I wish I could come to a class! My newest obsession is barre classes. I signed up for a 3-month bride-to-be special! Hopefully I'll have toned arms by May!!

Your kids are so adorable. I love the picture of Ryder w/ his tongue sticking out! And that skittles thing looked cool, too!

So funny about the stamps! Do they not give them out once they are in unparented classes?! Omg Whit's new puppy is soooo cute! Thanks again for meeting us on Friday! Jim always does so well at Banana Republic too! It's like the entire store was designed for his body type lol. Not fair. ;)

Whit's puppy is so cute! Seeing the pictures of the kids without coats on and without snow on the ground is making me sad :( haha
