Weekend Recap

…on Wednesday!  Better late than never :)

On Saturday morning, I went to a baby shower for my friend Lindsey.  I met Lindsey through blogging, and I couldn’t be more excited for her to welcome baby Jack  this summer!  The shower was absolutely prefect and adorable.  She has some great pictures posted on her blog.  It was so much fun and I could have hung around all day chatting with everyone.  Although I don’t think the hostess would have appreciated that :)

The boys spent their morning playing trains

57 You can kind of tell in this picture that there is a couch and chair in his playroom.  That’s because our new furniture arrived a couple of weeks ago!!!  We are obsessed with how comfortable the new couch is.  I hope to post that soon.

Saturday afternoon, I did some baking, and as usual, Cooper wanted to “hewwwp”.  I let him sit on the counter, and then I gave him the beaters.  Yes I did.  It took him a few minutes to figure out what to do, but soon he was in heaven!

Please excuse the Gary Busey hair.  We had been playing with his water table outside just before this.

On Sunday, Lee played golf for most of the day, so Cooper and I got to have some quality time together.  We went to the grocery store (where he shockingly behaved), and played outside after his nap.  We attempted the park but he didn’t have much interest ( who is this child?) so we ended up taking a very slow walk around the neighborhood getting sidetracked by dogs and running into strangers’ garages all while I carried his trike that he just had to take.

We also played in the backyard for a while, where Cooper stared at a fly on “his” broom for a good 10 minutes.  He was mesmerized.


Eventually the fly left and I put him to work sweeping the patio.  Just kidding.  He did that all by himself.  This boy loves to sweep…think that will still be the case in 10 years or so?


After Lee got home we decided to work on one of many a project that’s been partially finished for a while.

This project consisted of 6 boards that we were attaching to make 3 groups of 2.  All 6 boards were by the kitchen table, and I carried the first 2 over to where we were going to work.  When I looked up, Cooper was carrying a board over to me!  Clearly he is a genius.  Then he proceeded to carry each of the remaining boards over to me.  So helpful.  Lee was getting his drill ready, and the next thing I knew, Cooper had brought over his toy tool box, and he got out his drill.  I, obviously, thought it was about the cutest thing ever.  Every time Lee drilled, so did Cooper :)


Please don’t ask if this project is finished now.  You should know the answer to that.  We like to drag things out as long as possible, as well as starting new things before we finish old ones.
