We’ve had all kinds of fun things keeping us busy around these parts. My baby girl turned 3 years old last week (tear)!
Which meant donuts for breakfast of course!
She finally got that swing we’ve been promising since we moved. Our last house had a ground level deck so we couldn’t hang a swing from it. It’s so nice that we have the option with our new house, cause the girl loves to swing and it’s nice not to have to go to the playground every night for her to get her fix. Her actual birthday was on Wednesday and Saturday we had a princess theme party to celebrate.
We’re so fortunate to have awesome family and friends that were willing to travel to come to the party. We had a house full, and it was awesome to have our first real opportunity to entertain in our new house.
I have yet to tackle thank you notes, but I know it is going to be quite the challenge. Reagan made it a little hard on me by ripping through her mountain of gifts so fast I had no chance to keep track of who brought what. It is amazing how much things change from one year to the next. Last year I had to keep her on track the whole time and keep coaxing her onto the next gift cause she just wanted to focus on and play with the last one she had opened. This year it was open one, toss it aside, and onto the next. Clearly we have a little learning to do in the gift opening etiquette department :) My apologies to anyone who gets a completely generic thank you note. I guarantee we love the gift, I’m just not sure which one you brought :)
Monday night we headed out for a super fun outing. Minnesota Vikings training camp!
We’re huge Vikings fans and are super spoiled now that we live in the same town where the team holdings training camp each year. Last year was our first time attending. Funny that we had no idea at the time that a year later we would be living here and have the opportunity to attend every year now.
We hung out near the field entrance to watch the coaches and players come out for practice. It wasn’t a designated autograph signing session, but some of the players and even coaches were nice enough to stop for fans.
Norv Turner, new Offensive Coordinator
Cordarrelle Patterson, Wide Receiver – I remember seeing him come out last year as a rookie and spending a good amount of time signing autographs. It was cool to see that he was still so accommodating this year too.
We hung out for a couple of hours watching their practice before we had to head out to get the little one to bed. Great way to kick off our week! The rest of the week has been pretty uneventful. No big plans on tap for this weekend and I kinda love it that way. We’ll probably head to the lake tomorrow afternoon but hopefully we can get some cleaning, grocery shopping and meal planning done on Sunday. I’d love to be able to go into the week feeling organized for once.
Happy Friday and I hope you have a fun and safe weekend! Our summer weekends are numbered!
