weekend review


I admit that I got jealous for a split second as I scrolled through Instagram and saw so many fun photos of friends camping or playing at the beach, wishing we could escape our neck of the woods for some fun as well... but only for a split second because I quickly realized how grateful I am to spend time with my little family, no matter where we are or what we are doing! Eric surprised me by staying home on Monday so we had another day to just relax and hangout together, it was the best!!
On Saturday we took a drive up the mountain and braved the *chilly* 38 degrees to explore Cedar Breaks National Monument. Luckily the hiking warmed our bodies, Mia is obsessed with being outside no matter how cold the temps are, and the scenery was breath taking!
We took it easy the rest of the weekend since Mia came down with some kind of bug. The poor girl had a rough time fighting her fever and just wasn't herself. BUT the cuddles were out of this world! Gotta soak those up while we still can ;) We were able to enjoy a BBQ, late night ice cream/movie dates and donuts for breakfast! We figured we'd go all out since it was a lazy weekend, HA! I suspect this summer is going to be a crazy one so even though I hate seeing Mia sick, it was the perfect excuse to take it easy and relax together. I hope everyone had a beautiful Memorial Day weekend! I am so thankful for the service of our military... Land of the free because of the brave!
