Guys, I’m not gonna lie, it was an intense weekend! We barely did anything, but there’s so much going on in our family, in my head and with Jay’s work that it felt like a really pivotal weekend despite the lack of evidence I have via pictures to show you. But, we did a few things and I will share them with you. You’ll just have to imagine a bunch of out-of-control heady stuff in between. Winking smile


There was a food festival in our town on Saturday. The green space near the library and community center was transformed into a kids’ paradise with bounce structures, games and a long row of local food vendors.

Dylan had so much fun bouncing and trying out new games.

I couldn’t believe he was old enough to go on this trampoline/bungee thingy, but he was and he was pumped to give it a try.

He’s such a thrill seeker. He had fun jumping as high as his little legs could get him for a while.

But then the guy running the ride decided to give Dylan a thrill and send him way up into the air. Dylan was so happy!

Another really cool experience for Dylan was riding inside a giant plastic bubble on a pool of water. There were kids older than him too nervous to try it but Dylan couldn’t get in a bubble fast enough!

He would’ve had more fun if he realized he could make the ball spin around by standing up and moving around in it. But still, he was all smiles.

We also had a bite to eat and sat with some friends for a bit.

We had to leave earlier than Dylan liked because Jay had some pressing matters to attend to at work and we wanted to stay together. Dylan and Jude, Jay’s co-worker’s son, hung out at the office together. Here they are watching Cars.

Dylan had a major flip out when it was time to give Jude back his hat. It was pretty monumental and I think he must have been very tired or something because it wasn’t normal. Anyway, we worked it out and then I took him to the grocery store while Jay finished up at work.

Dylan also had a weird night when it came to going to bed. He’s so obsessed with tools and has so many in his room that when I leave him to go to bed he stays up forever playing with his tools. We ended up having to move them out of his room to get him to go to sleep Sunday night.


One thing totally out of control in our house is the mess. I tried so hard to make a dent in it Sunday morning, but everything I accomplished got demolished again by the end of the day and it looks even worse now. Dylan is a tornado. But anyway, we eventually went out for some lunch. After some aimless driving around we ended up at The Cheesecake Factory.

The restaurant was outside a mall so we let Dylan run around the mall after we ate.

He also played in the kids’ area. I must say, I think three years old is the sweet spot for these play structures. He had the more fun climbing around on them than ever before. Nothing was too hard or too easy.

Here he is, climbing and having fun!

Jay took Dylan fishing for, like, five minutes when we got back home. I think it was too hot but I never did get the scoop on why they were back so fast.

Jay’s brother, Justin, stopped by later in the afternoon. It was nice to see him and hear about his latest shenanigans. He has the best stories.

So that’s about it! I think we’ll be having more fun in the weekends to come. Its hard to get out and enjoy life in the crisp Fall weather. Now the crisp Fall weather just needs to find us in Georgia!

Hope you all had great weekends!
