How is it already Monday, not to mention April this week? I thought last year flew by but this year is going even faster so far. Here is what we were up to this busy weekend, note I barely took out the camera this weekend!
Is it bad that I barely remember Friday? HA. We obviously did not do much… I had a busy work day, then we snuck out early to attend a open house for a company we work with and are friends with the owner. Before we knew it, it was 5:15pm and time to get Avery!
Avery had her last swimming lesson! Chad took her so i could run errands and get groceries since we had to head out to town right after. She passed lessons, of course (I am sure every kid does!) but had a bit of a rough swim that day Chad said.
We came home to have a snack, pack up and head out. The funeral was about 2.5 hours away where Chad’s grandparents and some other family live. The drive went ok, Avery had one meltdown but I had coffee so that semi made up for it Oh and Timbits, every road trip needs them.
Avery did okay for about 10 minutes into the service but luckily there was a side room we could sneak into where she could run around and I could still listen in, we managed to take a seat for the video tribute and last few minutes of the service. The day went as good as it could, it was nice to see everyone, even under the circumstances. There were a few laughs during the service which I knew Grandpa would have wanted.
It was a long day, after the service and luncheon we headed to his Grandma’s for a get together and supper. It was one full house, probably 50 people in their little house! We stayed till 8pm before making the drive back home.
Such beautiful views on our drive home!
Avery was up just before 7am, so we got up, had our coffee and baked this chocolate chip bread before working out. Every week I say I am taking my Sunday run outside and then I don’t. As much as I hate the treadmill, it is so easy and fast to run on it!
After our workouts I made blueberry pancakes for brunch, and took blurry photos of them…oops. But they tasted great, Avery ate two!!
Our afternoon was spent at Costco, seeing Chad’s Dad before he headed back south, having both of my brothers over to help with with school stuff, then my Mom came over to watch Avery so me and Chad could have a date night (much needed!) out.
Avery was a tad tired after not getting in her usual naps Saturday, this was taken less than a hour after her morning nap and she was attempting to go back to sleep at the back door:

Our date night was a delicious supper at Heritage Ranch with the most perfect little table and view:
I am happy to say I have a short work week this week and next now! I am ready for an extra long weekend
