a REAL weekend!

Her first every pony tail had to be documented!
"Daddy, daddy, DADDY!" was the word of the day... for Sunday AND Monday! That's right people, we finally had our first real weekend since moving to Arizona! I can't even describe how amazing it was to finally have Eric all to ourselves for two days in a row! Work has been crazy for Eric as he's been gone 14 hours a day, 6 days a week, but things are finally slowing down and 3 day weekends will be the norm for us before we know it! YAY! But until then, these 2 day weekends are kind of heavenly :)
Eric actually came home from work early Saturday evening (he even got in a workout at the gym before coming home early!) and he got to come to the park with us where we attended a Pi party! I admit that I've never celebrated Pi day before, but I don't turn down the opportunity to make new friends! Mia dragged Eric all over the park while I got to sit, eat and mingle in peace! I forgot how convenient it us to have two of us around to keep an eye on Mia ;) ha ha!
Sunday was a perfect day of relaxing! Eric made German Pancakes for breakfast, we watched a movie with Mia then went to church! After church we went to our new friend's home for dinner and seriously had the best time! You know how sometimes you find another couple who are basically the same people as you and you know there are a lot of good times to be had ahead? Yeah, we are super excited about this new friendship! I can't say it enough- the people here are so kind and inviting! Aside from missing our family and friends in Utah, we feel right at home and we only moved to Arizona a month and a half ago!
We had such a productive day around the house on Monday, all while cramming in as much fun as possible! We finally went to our first spring training baseball game! We watched the Reds VS the Giants... Eric wanted both teams to lose. Yeah. But the field is so close to home and we couldn't stay away! Of course it was 90 degrees and we went during Mia's nap time so you can imagine how much of the game we actually got to watch.... but we indulged in crappy ball park food, ice cream and sweet family time! After sweating our guts out at the game we went straight to the pool and Mia was in heaven "swimmin'" with daddy! She seriously wanted nothing to do with me the whole time Eric was around, and I didn't blame her! It was such a treat to soak up that family time and it feels so good knowing that we can look forward to this every weekend now! All hail the weekend (which in our case happened to be Sunday and Monday :))

Yay! I'm glad you had a great weekend, but I'm from Cincinnati, so I can't support Eric hating on my Reds! ;) GO REDLEGS! I'm super jealous you can go to the spring training games! So cool! Also, pi day is the perfect excuse to indulge. I went with coconut cream pie on Saturday. :)

That lil mini ponytail DEFINITELY needed documented! ;) And I know I tell you all the time, but your hair is seriously fabulous! :) I can't wait for mine to be longer again so I can do more buns/updos in general! hehe

Leslie said...

Yay for a fun family weekend! I love Mia's mini ponytail. And let's talk about how jealous I am of YOUR hair! It looks so thick and long and amazing. While I have the WORST hair on the planet (and I'm pretty sure little Mila has inherited my super fine/thin hair as well).

oooh that is so nice that you got a weekend! A real one. When Chris was transitioning to the job he has now he was doing the 6 days a week bit with long hours. It felt like a holiday every time he had two days off for the weekend. It is super nice to have two sets of eyes on the kiddo. That is more like an actual holiday =)
