Our Weekend Rewind

Little Moments Like This


Hey everyone! I hope y'all had a nice weekend. I'm so excited for this first edition of Weekend Rewind. I love posting about what we did during the weekend because it's so much fun to look back and see how we spent our time as a family. I can't wait to read all about everyone else's weekend too.

I do have to be honest though- we didn't do a single exciting thing this weekend. :) That's okay, though. I'll still share, even if it bores you to death.

We kicked off the weekend with a little playdate at the park. Emerson and her little friend had so much fun running around and climbing. Of course, they had to stop for a few snacks along the way.
While we were there a huge bus full of preschoolers arrived. They, along with their teachers, surrounded us to get a closer look at the little blonde babies. Then one of them whipped out her cell phone to take a picture and I finally had the courage to say no. I mean, I know E's picture is plastered all over my blog for anyone to see, but I just think it's weird that a stranger wants to take her picture. Up until recently it was so hard for me to tell people no, but I've gotten better about it and had no problem this time. We actually ended up moving to another area of the park so the girls could play in peace. I think it's sweet that everyone here loves babies so much but sometimes it can be a bit overwhelming.

Unfortunately the rest of the weekend was spent with a sick little munchkin. Her nose started running on Thursday night and then she started coughing and ran a low-grade fever. I could tell that she wasn't feeling well because she just wasn't her usual self. We gave her a little bit of Tylenol and did the only thing there is to do at a time like that. We hung out in our jammies for most of the weekend.
 We played, we read books, and we did lots of sleeping and cuddling.
By Friday night she seemed to be feeling a little bit better. Jesse went to play night golf with one of his buddies and I had a little Grey's Anatomy marathon. I'm still not caught up but I'm getting there.

We really didn't do anything on Saturday except for hang out. Even though it was pretty hot we thought it was best to keep Emerson out of the pool until she is well. We did spend some time outside though and the fresh air seemed to perk her up. She played outside on our patio for a little bit and we took several walks around the compound.
It's still surreal to see her walking right next to me. I just love it. She is getting more and more steady each day but that definitely doesn't stop her from falling. She took a few pretty good falls this weekend and has a nice little scrape on her forehead and her nose. Poor thing!

The highlight of our weekend was purchasing our tickets for our trip home this summer. I've been trying to decide forever when we should go and what airline we should use. I'm so glad to have that taken care of and I am SO looking forward to the trip. I can't wait to see these two (and everyone else too!)
And I can't forget our big splurge. Baskin Robbins! Jesse had some extra cash so he decided to run to BR. This is what he came back with.
Yes, I know. Incredibly healthy. It was our one last splurge before going on a healthy diet this week :)

And that, folks, is the extent of our exciting weekend. Luckily Emerson seems to be on the mend and we are looking forward to another fun-filled week. Hopefully we won't melt in this crazy heat!

What a good, low key weekend! I'm sorry Emerson was sick, that's not fun, but it's nice sometimes to make it a quiet, family filled weekend. And, yay for purchasing your flight tickets! I'm sure you will have an amazing summer!

Lyndsey said...

That's so exciting that you purchased your tickets home! I bet everyone can't wait to see E! I'm glad she is starting to feel better. And I think it's funny you took a picture of y'alls feet because I have a similar picture on my blog today too! :)

KellyDiane said...

I'm so sorry to hear Emerson wasn't feeling well! I'm glad ya'll still had a fun weekend!

Emily Powell said...

love her cute sun hat! we have one very similar. Have to keep the blonde babies covered!

Mallorie said...

We are a lot alike...I would have a really hard time telling people no too! But good for you for saying no pictures!!! I'm sorry sweet girl was sick :-( I totally know what you mean about plane tickets. Mine aren't as expensive as yours but it's still a large expense and I feel so much better after they are purchased!!! Loved linking up for the first time! This is totally going to be a hit, you are so clever to think of this!!!

Beth Ann said...

Sorry little Miss E was sick! Poor baby. Looks like you managed to have a nice weekend anyway.

Andrea @ Life in Dawleywood said...

I love her little sunhat so cute! I can't believe people were trying to take her picture, how weird! I would totally be creeped out. So glad miss E is feeling better, sick babies make me so sad. I bet your family can't wait to see y'all!

Kate @ Daffodils said...

We got our tickets home this weekend too. The boys and I are going for a whole month. Im so excited! Looks like a nice, relaxing weekend. Glad E is on the mend!

Natalie said...

Ooo yeah I think I would have had to say no to pictures too....though I'm not sure I would have had enough courage to actually say anything, but that is kind of weird-I guess they don't see lots of blonde babies! good for you :)
Sorry E was sick this weekend :(

Joeylee said...

I would have said no to pictures too, kinda weird. I hope E is feeling better. Loving her little lady bug jammies, too cute.

Allison said...

Your photographs are just amazing! I'm hoping to better my photography skills here really soon! So excited to be linking up with you on my brand new blog!

J and A said...

Kelli Kegley said...

Yay for plane tickets!!!! I know you are counting down the days. I love that picture of Emerson walking amongst the pink petals. Precious! Glad she is feeling better!

the workaholic momma said...

I love this idea and will totally join in next week!!! I hope E is feeling better...but sometimes snuggle weekends when not much is going on are the best!!! And that ice cream....oh my, its a good thing there isnt an ice cream place close to me right now - I would totally be there;)

Hope you guys are having a great Monday:)

Lindsay said...

Those jammies are too stinking cute!

Ashley said...

Hey! Linking up for the first time and I screwed up! #19 has the wrong blog address, so I added another link! Sorry for the mix up!

THE COOK'S said...

New follower!!! Such a great idea for a link-up! Your daughter is precious! :))

Katy said...

I found your blog from someone else's through your link up. The photo of your little girl with the flower petals is adorable!

Rachel and John said...

I could totally go for some BR right now. That looks so good! I hope E is feeling better soon. And I'm proud of you for telling the stranger not to take her picture. That would creep me out too.

Natalie said...

I would be weirded by that too...strangers just wanted a picture? Anyhow, they are so much fun when they learn how to walk better and love to investigate everything. It's like a whole new world for them! I am glad she's doing better and BR is always a great decision :)
