This week has been rough... between trying to get back into the swing of things and overdoing it, I am exhausted. Thankfully it's Friday and that means the beginning of the weekend. More importantly, it's the last weekend of Ian's busy season! We don't have any plans this weekend and I hope to conjure up enough energy to do something fun with the family.
Today Stephanie and Connor came over to play. I figured the kids could play outside, burn some energy and then we'd have lunch. Bella and Connor played outside at the sand and water table and chased each other in the grass. The weather was warm so the kids were pretty hot and rosy cheeked after about an hour. We decided it was time to come inside and head to lunch. We went to a local Mexican restaurant called Luna's, which has some pretty yummy food! We finished lunch and headed home just in time for nap time, which I definitely participated in. Bella took a fantastic nap and so did I. I guess we both needed the extra rest.
We decided to eat out for dinner and went to Beef O'Brady's. It's a family-friendly restaurant and the food is pretty good. Plus, there are always coupons for $5 off so it's a cheap place to eat, too. We discovered that Bella LOVES ranch dressing and dipped EVERYTHING in ranch at dinner. It was really cute! She refused to sit in the high chair so she sat alongside her daddy and ate at the table like a big girl.
After dinner we went home for our nightly bath, book and bed routine. Everyone in our household is exhausted and so after Bella was tucked into bed, Ian and I caught up on some DVR'ed shows and I also caught up on blogging. It's an early night for us, but that's okay. We work and play hard so we deserve the extra rest.
