Weekend Recap

We had a great weekend. On Friday I decided to take Ethan to a local library to do something different. He had a great time. He loved all the toys and games they had and we read some books too. I think we'll definitely back this Winter.

Friday night we just relaxed and hung out at home. On Saturday we didn't really do a whole lot. We ran a bunch of errands and played at home with Ethan. We did get a nice walk in since it was above freezing. Ethan was so happy to walk around for a while.

For dinner we fired up the grill and made homemade grilled pizza. It was really good. I'm ready for Summer and grilling every night!

On Sunday we got up and headed to the Shedd Aquarium for a fun family outing. Ethan had a great time last time we went and this time was no different. He was running up to all of the tanks saying, "fishies, fishies." I'm so glad we got a membership there, it's a really fun way to spend a few hours and perfect for his age.

After the aquarium we came home, made some lunch and then we all took naps. Sunday night Michael had the idea to make breakfast for Sunday dinner. He made pancakes from scratch using a recipe I found on Pinterest. It was delicious!

I hope all of you had a great weekend and have a good week ahead!

Our week in pictures: 2.16

1. More snow this week, ugh.
2. It was a soup in a bread bowl kind of night.
3. Love these Disney outfits I got on Etsy for Ethan for our upcoming trip!
4. Fun at the library!
5. Ethan had tons of fun with his cousins at Grandma and Grandpa's!
6. Speaking of Disney, we showed Ethan a short video about fun things at Disney World and he was mesmerized and kept saying wow!
7. We actually got to go for a couple walks this week since it was above freezing!
8. Are you using ebates? If you shop online and like free money, I highly recommend it. I just got my quarterly check for $100 and will have at least another $100 coming next quarter thanks to Christmas shopping!
9. Grilled pizza night, yum!

Weekend Recap

We had a great weekend! On Friday we celebrated Valentine's Day and I am so lucky to have 2 Valentine's! Ethan came downstairs to his bucket with some fun surprises! He is obsessed with Daniel Tiger right now so that was the theme.

After opening presents and some breakfast we headed out to have a fun family day at the Children's Museum. Michael had never been before so he wanted to check it out with us. He had so much fun watching Ethan run around like a wild man exploring the museum. We had a lot of fun.

Friday night we decided to make our Valentine's dinner at home. We made one of our favorites, sesame chicken and fried rice. It was so yummy and the perfect way to cap off our Valentine's Day.

Saturday we didn't do a whole lot. We hung out at home most of the day and then met up with Rich, Tif, Jacob and Makayla for dinner. We hadn't seen them in a long time since they were in Florida so it was nice to see the kids and give them their Valentine's gifts and catch up.

On Sunday we had breakfast and played in the morning and then my sister Arla, Teddy and Lily came over. Ethan was so excited to see Lily. They have so much fun playing together. They had a ball running around and playing for a long time. Then we went to lunch. 

Love this picture of them on the horse and Lily holding on to Ethan!

After lunch we headed home and Arla, Teddy and Lily headed home because it was nap time for both kids. The rest of Sunday Michael worked some and I did some things around the house. Michael made us bacon wrapped pork tenderloin and potatoes for dinner, it was really yummy! 

I hope all of you had a great weekend and a speedy week ahead!
