Weekend Snapshots 20



Welcome to this edition of Weekend Snapshots link-up brought to you by Jack conquering the bounce house obstacle course like a boss at the Houston Zoo's Zoobilee.  Zoobilee is an annual party thrown for all zoo members and is totally awesome!  We went last year and had a blast so there was no way we were missing it this year (threat of rain or not!).  The rest of the weekend was kinda meh, but at least Zoobilee was awesome.

Thursday:  Jack and I got to the zoo early to make sure we didn't miss any part of the Zoobilee festivities.  Even though it's a members only party it can still get pretty crowded and crazy and I'm just not that good at dealing with crowds.  I'll definitely show up early next year, too - Jack got to enjoy the bounce houses without too much of a line and we didn't have to wait at all for the free ice cream or carousel ride.  Jack and I got matching green tiger airbrush tattoos (and Dennis got one, too, after he got off work).  The bounce house obstacle course was the big winner of the night - Jack must've done it about 1000 times, then decided the cornhole game volunteer needed his help.  Thankfully, she was a sweet and understanding grandma who was 100% okay with Jack gathering all the beanbags after they were thrown.  I promise I didn't dress Jack up in the volunteer colors on purpose.

Friday:  My MIL got back from being out of town for a week and wanted to see Jack, so I dropped him off at her house for the afternoon.  I did some stuff around the house that is impossible to do with a toddler and he helped her in the garden.  Win-win!  His hair is finally starting to really grow and was just too cute sticking out of the back of his hat when I went to pick him up.

Saturday:  Saturday was a huge flop.  It was a lazy pajama day, but not in the planned let's laze around and watch TV kinda way and more of the my ADD is overwhelming me and I feel lost and am not sure where to start or what to do kind of way.  I didn't accomplish much of anything and am pretty sure I spent most of the day distractedly wandering around the house trying to figure out what housework to do while checking my phone too much.  I did manage to make Jack and I some really yummy smoothies, though.  When Den got home that evening, I needed to make sure to hack a portal (that's Ingress talk, yo), so I got some much needed alone time for the 15 minutes I was out playing.  Things were awfully quiet when I got home - I figured the boys were up to something and left them to their evil plans.  After a while, Jack came running out of the bathroom babbling about something excitedly.  He dragged me into the bathroom where poor Dennis was sitting on the floor with shaving cream all over him #lifewithatoddler  We decided that since the day had been so blah, we needed to camp in the living room to have a little fun.

Sunday:  Sunday was another lazy pajama day, but this time a little more deliberately so.  Both times we've camped in the living room, Jack insisted in wearing one of my t-shirts for pajamas and this morning kept pretending he was a turtle by pulling his arms, legs, and head inside my shirt - so funny!  I fixed a really great Whole30 breakfast and Jack insisted on having his picture taken with my plate - he seems to be getting used to my new habit of taking pics of my food before I eat it, lol.  Jack also helped me blow dry my hair and then spent some time on his hair, too.  It took forever to get out of the house to go grocery shopping and as soon as we got to the store, he fell asleep in my lap (he rides in a car seat, just so you know, but was throwing a fit and fell asleep in my lap after we parked and I got him out of his seat to calm him down #safetyfirst).  He was "super hungry" when he woke up and my picky eater actually ate some steak they were sampling at the store.

How was your weekend?  We'd love to know all about it, so make sure to link up your snapshots and recaps with me and Ariana!  The link-up is open until Friday!  Have a great week, ya'll!
