Weekending: Road Warrior Style

Happy President's Day! Unfortunately, Brandon doesn't get this holiday off, so it's back to Monday business as usual for the boys and me. (Boo!) 

This weekend was a bit of a crazy (but so fun) one. It was my best friend, Lindsey's, son's birthday in The Woodlands, so Walker and I went by ourselves since we were only staying one night and that's a hard four-hour drive one way on a little guy like Knox. 

Anyway, I dropped Knox off with my mother-in-law on Friday morning and hit the road with Walker to my hometown. Walker did great in the car and we enjoyed some special one-on-one time together. (Brandon picked Knox up from his mom's house after work on Friday.) We had a little put stop at Buc-cees, and when we got into town, Walker and I made a quick stop to my mom's store; went out to visit with my grandparents; and then went to my parents' house to have dinner and spend the night with them. 

Saturday morning, we left bright and early to head to The Woodlands Children's Museum for the party! Again, Walker was a champ in the car and we had a ball at the birthday party. It was such a cute little place and it was so good getting to celebrate sweet Austin. After the party, Walker and I loaded up and drove straight home to Dallas. We drove 540 miles in 36-ish hours (shew!), but it was so much fun and I'd do it all over again tomorrow. 

It was so good to get home to Brandon and Knox, and we all went out to eat Mexican food because I most certainly wasn't cooking! 

Sunday was rainy, yucky and gross. Brandon let me sleep in until 8:30 a.m. (heavenly!) to recover from a long last few days. We had a day full of cleaning the house, running errands and laying low around the house. I made these delicious stuffed sweet potatoes (along with balsamic-glazed Brussels sprouts) for supper and it was a huge hit. 

I hope y'all have a great day!

Linking up with Biana

  6. What a fun weekend! I can't wait to start taking my little guy on fun adventures--hopefully this warm weather we are having is going to get the germs out of here!

  7. I bet that one on one time was so nice. He looks so cute in that fireman's uniform!

  8. What a fun little trip and some one on one time with Walker! I bet it would feel so weird to have just one kiddo! Lol.
