Weekending


Monday, June 6, 2016

So it's Monday, I'm exhausted and patiently (not) waiting to get ahold of the girls' pediatrician. Sutton's cough has gotten worse and my mother-in-law said she was super wheezy this weekend, so we are going to take her in this afternoon (hopefully) to make sure her cold isn't bronchitis, pneumonia or something like that.

Last night was the best sleep I have gotten in almost a week. Their coughs weren't as bad last night, but today they still sound awful. Thursday night Sutton coughed so hard, she threw up her dinner and milk all over her bed right after Rory left to softball. And she had just had a bath. So I had to clean her bed, give her another bath and use my hands to get all the throw up chunks off her sheets, blanket and sleep sack. Such is the life of a mom. I had a large glass of wine that night.

Friday, we worked all day long and it wasn't as bad as I thought it would be (spoiled). I took the girls to Target to return the sunshade and shop around a bit. I almost bought a dress that Evelina mentioned but it fit way too tight across my chest in the XS and the Small was too big in the waist even with the ties cinched. Bummer.

After our outing, we went home to meet up with Rory and take the girls to dinner. They did so well for about 3/4 of it and then Avery had a fit and we had to finish quickly and head home. We did some packing for our trip after putting the girls to bed and relaxed.

Saturday we got up bright and early to drive to Walnut Creek/Orinda, CA for a family gathering. We stopped at our favorite coffee shop for breakfast in Truckee and made it to Orinda about 15 minutes before the event started. We celebrated my sister-in-law and her upcoming arrival of baby Mayer. We also celebrated Rory's great aunts passing. There was lots of food, mimosas and fun with all the kids. My girls had a blast even with their colds.

After the party, we grabbed some milk at the store and headed to our hotel. We checked in, fed the girls some dinner, grabbed some happy hour free drinks downstairs and put the girls to bed around 6:45 since they were exhausted from the day. My in-laws including my sister-in-law and brother-in-law came to our hotel (it's across the street from their apartment) with dinner. We watched the Sharks game and enjoyed some quiet family time. 

Sunday we slept in a bit and had breakfast downstairs. It was chaos and a mistake, but everywhere in the city was packed with brunching people. We met up with my in-laws again, grabbed coffee and then headed over to Rory's grandfather's assisted care home to finally meet the infamous Walter. Rory and his sister haven't seen their grandfather in years and I have never met him, so it was the perfect time to go visit. My girls got to meet their great grandfather, I got to meet my grandfather and everyone reconnected. There were tears, hugs and amazing moments. One too funny and obscene to mention here. Let's just say, I know where Rory gets his naughty mouth from now. We took too many pictures to count on our real camera and I haven't gone through them yet. So I will save those for another post.

After that, we headed to lunch at this Italian deli and it was soooo good. Then we said our goodbyes and headed home. Next time I see my sister-in-law, she will have a beautiful baby. I can't wait. 

We drove home only making two stops and got home around 5 pm. We fed the girls, cooked some stuff for daycare and went on a long walk. Then it was bath time for the girls and off to bed for them. We order delivery pizza and it was heavenly. We caught up on some shows and went to bed early. 

It was a pretty good weekend even though I don't have many pictures to show. Emotional weekend, but a great one nonetheless.

How was your weekend?

I am linking up with Biana today.

    1. Me too. It sounds so bad and nasty when she does it. I am the same way. And I eventually fall asleep at 2 or 3 am and have to be up at 5 am. So rough. I hope your little guys are feeling better.
