What Happens On The Weekends

I'm sure that most of you have noticed that I don't really post on the weekends. My husband is off and I have declared weekends as our "family time". If we're just sitting around the house, I might pop on to check emails and things, but I usually don't post.

I've decided that I'll write about our weekends on Mondays so that I can document things we do and you get a little more insight to our little family.

We spent all of Friday at the fair. It was BEAUTIFUL with the exception of the 20 minutes that it drizzled rain on us. We didn't go last year so this was the first time that Evan really got to experience it. We rode rides for HOURS and he had a blast.

He LOVED this huge slide, but I quickly got tired of having to carry him up those steps OVER AND OVER again.

Here is my brother and sister...

I was brave enough to let Evan ride this over the fair. He kept saying "WHOA"!

This train was the only ride that he did all by himself and he was a little unsure about not having me ride with him.

We walked around the fair and visited the animals.

We didn't leave until 9:30 or so because my sister danced at 8:00 and we didn't want to miss that. Here we are after a LONG but fun day at the fair.

Isabella did AMAZINGLY well and loved being carried around in her Baby Bjorn Original Spirit Carrier. As I told you in my Aloha Friday post, I was worried about feeding her in public. I used my nursing cover and would duck into corners to feed her. One older gentleman made a big deal out of it once and I got mad that he didn't "approve", but I didn't back down and I fed my baby! I was completely covered and I was usually out of sight somewhere. I did have one mom come up to me and say that she wished she would have had a nursing cover when she was feeding her babies. I saw several moms who were just feeding their babies as they walked around the fair-I'm WAY too modest for that but applaud them for being able to.

Saturday we mostly drove around looking for a new truck. We sold my husband's and he's been looking for another one for about a month now. That night we went to my parent's house to eat wings and watch the game.

Sunday we didn't make it to church and spent a lazy morning at home drinking coffee and reading the paper. My mom and I went out to do a little shopping and to run a few errands after lunch. After we got back, we all sat around playing with Evan and Isabella. My favorite part of every weekend is being lazy and spending time with my family.

Pin It!

Sounds like the perfect weekend! (sans the grumpy old man!)

Sounds like a fun weekend! I can't believe someone said something to you about breastfeeding. I would probably fly off the handle which wouldn't help anything. Did your hubby yell at him?

Emily said...

I can't believe someone got mad at you for nursing. Things like that just tick me off. Half the time I didn't even use a nursing cover...as long as your being descret (which you obv were) I say get over it people!! Ok, off my soapbox! ;)
Looks like y'all had a fun weekend at the fair and that slide looks huge and fast!!

The fair looked like it had a little bit of everything! Your weekend sounds like it was really nice!

Those slides are so fun - but I wouldn't want to do it more than a couple times! ;-)

What a fun weekend! Great pictures too. Festivals/fairs are pretty much done around here which makes me sad.

Thanks for visiting my blog. I love yours, am now following and looking forward to reading more.

Sounds like a great weekend, a little drizzle is not bad, it poured here in NH on Saturday! Looking forward to reading about your weekends on Mondays!

Good for you for giving yourself some family time away from the blog. I've recently cut back on weekend posting too.

The fair looks like such fun!

Sounds like an awesome weekend!

Great photo's...I wanted to start screaming cuss words though when you mentioned the older man with a problem with nursing. My husbands aunt was disgusted that I decided to nurse my first child (8 yrs ago) and to this day I want to slap people who frown on it.

Lisa Anne said...

Looks like you had a blast. I love the petting zoo, probably the best part of fairs for me!! Besides the rides of course!

Sherri @ Luv a Bargain said...

Great pictures! Especially the slide pic! That's my idea of a perfect weekend too.

I can't believe this day and age someone said something to your about feeding your baby. I think that older man is stuck in the past.

Nichol said...

So jealous!!! Here we are in the cold and your at the fair (boohoo) Sounds like your weekend was great! Love the photos.

Erica said...

Sounds like great fun! Nice to read a bit about your life! I'm really enjoying our 'fall' weather here in Florida!

Looks like a great time!
So frustrating hearing about the older man upset about you nursing Isabella. Good grief, you were covered even! Good for you for holding your ground!

Alexis AKA MOM said...
