Happy Monday, friends! The weekends always seem to fly right by, don't they? We had beautiful weather after a few days of rain, and it was so nice to get outside and enjoy the sunshine.


+ It was rainy and dreary most of the day, and we had contractors here working on the never-ending master bathroom renovation, so the boys and I had a low-key day at home. They especially loved playing and reading books in their tent

+ Once Brandon got home {and the sun started to peek out}, we had dinner at a new-to-us restaurant, Dallas Craft Co. The boys really enjoyed playing with their giant Connect Four set on the patio, and Brandon and I enjoyed a drink and dinner on the patio. The boys were too busy to take more than a few bites of their mini corndogs. ;) 

+ On our way home, we stopped by Brandon's high school and football field to let the boys take a gander at where their dad played. Football is a big deal here in Texas {#TexasForever} and Brandon loved taking a walk down memory lane. 


+ I was supposed to go get my hair cut while Brandon took the boys to LegoLand, but Knox woke up with a low-grade fever and was very lethargic and refusing to eat or drink, so I rescheduled my appointment, sent Brandon to LEGOLAND with Walker, and Knox and I stayed home for lots of cuddles all day. 

I'm not sure what Knox had, but it was pitiful. He was only awake for about 30-45 minutes all day and instead just slept and slept. His fever broke around 10 a.m. Saturday morning, and I finally got him to eat a Popsicle and drink some Pedialyte around dinnertime. He got a bath and immediately went to bed. 

But meanwhile, Walker and Brandon had a ball at LEGOLAND and I heard "it was so cool!" all day long from Walker. 

+ Brandon and I watched "Molly's Game" and had this delicious meal after the boys were in bed. 


+ Thankfully, Knox woke up much more himself, but we stayed home from trying out another new church just in case. We had a very lazy morning and then had a little picnic on the patio before Walker and Brandon got in the pool. {Knox can't get his cast wet, so he and I hung out on the patio while the two other guys swam.} 

+ We all took afternoon naps {glorious!} and then had a very productive afternoon crossing things off of our insanely long new-house-to-do list. 

+ The guys played while I got supper ready. This game has been a recent favorite of the boys' ever since my sister-in-law sent it to Knox last week. 

+ Brandon grilled chicken and I made this little side for supper, and we all hung out together as a family before getting ready to start another week. 

Have a great week! 

Linking up with Biana
