We have been SICK around here. A virus has made its way through all of us. Fevers, gooky eyes, runny noses, hacking coughs, for days and days on end. On Friday night, I could not stop coughing for hours, and the Mister made a midnight journey for cough suppressant. I woke the next morning to find that he had fed both boys and taken them on a run, letting me sleep late. He'd also left me a note.
I love holiday weekends. Especially when it turns out that the Mister doesn't have to work! We spent our weekend recuperating, recreating, relaxing, and knocking out a few household projects.
A spur-of-the-moment decision to catch a baseball game.
Monday, we had a babysitter for the day and got several projects done. It's AMAZING how much you can do when the munchkins are occupied! My favorite? We hung these canvas prints, which I ordered using a combination of birthday money from my parents and a LivingSocial deal, on the wall of the den. I'm kind of in love and plan on growing the collection.
And then...we took the boys, all jammied up, to the fireworks show on the Mall. We were so thankful that we could leave our apartment 20 minutes before the show, walk down to the Mall to find a spot, and then just walk home. People camp out on the Mall for hours beforehand and spend hours getting home by packed Metro trains, just to see these fireworks.
