Friday was the day that Fall dreams are made of, well at least my dreams.
It was cool without being cold.
It was an overcast day without being rainy and dreary.
We wore long sleeves and pants and it was perfect.
Fridays are probably my most favorite day of the week. I love to cook a good meal and dessert on Fridays and enjoy the evening with my family. Bonus points if we don't have plans the next day and get to go to sleep knowing that the next day is full of nothing.
This Friday was a little different though, Luke and I had a wedding to go to, which essentially meant we had a date night.
Any night just the two of is with uninterrupted convo is a date night. I'll be honest and say that we aren't good about "date nights". So actually going out and getting a babysitter was a bit out of the norm for us, but very much anticipated. Even Eli was excited to have a babysitter for the night!
I was afraid Annie would cry a lot as she has been rather attached to me lately but she did fine after we left.
The wedding was beautiful and we enjoyed a dinner together. It was perfect.
On Saturday we lounged around most of the day. Luke and Eli have a tradition of making pancakes most Saturday mornings so they did that while I fed Annie.
We played outside most of the morning and went to the park before naptime for Eli and Annie.
I used naptime to read Gone Girl which turned out to be an incredibly creepy book. Creepy, but kept my full attention.
For dinner we went to a restaurant and ate outside. Eli was able to run around which is always perfect for a 3 year old.
It was a gorgeous night and we all enjoyed being outside.
Sunday after church we went to a work party that Luke's company holds every year. I get excited to go cause I know Eli will love it. And he did. He got his face painted and jumped on several inflatables and looked at (but didn't touch) various "extreme animals" (snakes, a baby kangaroo, a porcupine). It was a fun event and a changeup from our normal quiet Sundays.
The weekend was a great one....even though it started out feeling like Fall but Sunday afternoon it was downright hot. It still felt very fall-like
Hopefully Fall weather will be here to stay soon!
