I love weekends.
I love lazy mornings filled with lots of coffee and sunshine.
This weekend was far from slow and relaxing, but it was good.
Sleeping in. For him, sleeping in means 7ish.
Up earlier than I really wanted to be. Looking for running gear in the dark.
Waiting. Running with my friend Haley this a.m.
Running buddies. Miss Haley ran her fastest 5K with me this weekend. You go, girl.
Came home to find them on the porch reading And to Think That I Saw it on Mulberry Street, another favorite.
Receiving a package from the mailman.
Delivering the package to his daddy.
What’s left of his breakfast. (I wasn’t around for breakfast this morning.)
Wondering — how I can arrange my space to make it work more efficiently for me. The answer might be in simplifying.
Morning snack. Devouring sweet mango. Can’t get it in his mouth fast enough.
Needing a nap — but refusing too.
Packing for an overnight trip to my mom’s.
Preparing lunch for the road with one hand. I love that he still wants to be held.
On the way to ba ngoai’s.
Hello ba ngoai.
Showing ba ngoai how to open his snack container.
Enjoying each other. She cooks outside — in the garage — and he enjoys watching her.
She makes awesome desserts.
Off to dinner.
Taking a break from dinner to do a little shopping at Trader Joe’s.
Hanging out with ba ngoai + Auntie Mimi.
Jim + I get a few hours to ourselves. We went to see an amazing theatrical dance recital.
Wrapping up the evening.
