I started out Friday super excited. Why you may ask? Well, I learned that my favorite lunch spot downtown reopened, and I couldn’t wait to get down there to eat. They have the most amazing corn soup on the planet. It’s going to take every ounce of will power in my bones to keep myself from going there every single day. Plus their salad has pickled onions on it, and their homemade dill ranch is the stuff of dreams. I am not lying to you – Brick & Tin lunch is where it’s at.
We had a pizza and movie night to round out the day.
Saturday, we met up with friends for a day of fun at Alabama Adventure. One side of this park is amusement park rides, and the other side is a water park. We did a few rides, but a lot of them were too much for the kiddos, so we didn’t spend too much time over there. Plus it was blazing hot. We did all the kid-friendly water rides – they have this one section that’s about six water slides perfect for the little kids. We spent a lot of the time there, but also checked out the lazy river, the wave pool, and another splash area, with bigger slides, but still ok for the kiddos. Luckily, the other mom took care of the kids and let me check out some of the bigger slides. Only downfall is that most of them require partners to ride in double tubes – I really want to go back when Sheff’s a little older to see if I can get him on them.
As a thank-you for taking the kid pretty much all day, B made me a steak and potato dinner and got an amazing bottle of wine. Sheff and I were exhausted, so no staying up late for us!
Sunday was one of the most relaxing weekend days we’ve had in a bit. We got up, had breakfast, bummed around the house for a bit, and then went out for a pool day. Which turned into just a few hours, since we had some rain and thunderstorms roll in. And if I’m being 100% transparent here, the rest of the afternoon was spent in front of the television. Sometimes rainy weekend days just calls for it, you know? Bennett made a delicious shrimp boil for dinner, and we ended the weekend by watching The First 48 in bed.
And just like that, the weekend was over. We’ve got parent’s night tomorrow night, and like the nerd I am, I am really looking forward to it. It’ll be our first ever, so really excited to see what Sheff’s year is going to look like.
I hope you all had an amazing weekend!
