Happy Monday friends! I spent some time this weekend planning out when and how I am going to share some updates with you guys so I am excited to hopefully be back on track in this space. Something I am still adjusting to is how my weekends are officially my own again. For the last 2.5 years I always had something I needed to be doing on the weekend like studying. Well, that’s all behind me now and I can officially relax when I leave the clinic on Friday afternoons. I am still getting used to it but I have to say it feels pretty flipping awesome!
This past weekend was seriously perfect. Saturday morning Chris and I divided and conquered; he took Bryn to the vet for Bailey (more on that later) and Em and I did the grocery shopping. I couldn’t resist these stunning tulips to light up our kitchen table.
Later that day our amazing friends came over for a BBQ and the kids had a blast. It was perfect weather so we set up the bounce house and other toys outside and the kids went at it. It felt so good to be reunited with some of our very best friends and to have our kids playing together outside. Once they left and the house was cleaned up the girls decided they wanted to snuggle in for the night on the floor with Chris. Be still my heart.
Sunday morning we got up bright and early for a family workout in the garage. The girls played on their trampoline and drew with chalk which Chris and I broke a sweat. Bryn saw me doing ring rows and wanted to get it on the action. We need to get this girl into gymnastics!
After a quick shower we headed to church. I think we are going to really like our new church home! It’s a sweet little parish and our friends go there too. The only downside is that there isn’t a nursery so the kiddos are with us for mass. If you have any good suggestions for quiet activities to keep a two year old entertained please send them my way!
It was another beautiful day yesterday so we took the dogs to the dog park and let the girls burn some energy on the playground. Emmie found a friend right away and played her heart out while Bryn climbed everything in sight.
I love this next photo because it captures Bailey’s personality so clearly. While you only see her ears you get the sense that she is very in tune with what is happening on the playground. She is our protector and seriously the best dog ever (along with Trigger).
I hope your weekend was as beautiful as ours! I am excited to be back in the clinic this week. I am starting to get my bearings a bit and can’t wait to share more with you about my first week as a real PA! Happy Monday 🙂
