We’re only halfway to the next weekend, so we’re making some progress on these weekend updates y’all!
Friday was super fun – we took a late late lunch and went to Back Forty for some cheeseburgers and purple hull pea hummus. It was so delicious. Back Forty is definitely my favorite place in the Ham for cheeseburgers, and in my opinion have the most family friendly atmosphere, with plenty of green space for the kids to run around, and trains passing by frequently. After that, we checked out the new Ghost Train Brewing location, and it was so nice. In addition to their beers, they also had a really nice cocktail menu, and a really cool outside space. B was going out with some friends, so I took Sheff to his school’s field to practice some fielding. He did so good, so of course he got some time playing on the playground after. We made some oven pizza and settled in for Shrek Ever After. We were sleepy, so it was off to bed for us pretty early.
Saturday, we got a bye week from baseball since Sheff’s team is the #1 seed. We got up early and went to breakfast and then went to the batting cages. Sheff loves it – we go to D-bat over in Homewood. The slowest the balls can go is 37 mph, so it’s really cool to see Sheff get a piece of some of them. After that, it was lounging outside and in the pool for the rest of the afternoon. The Y had parents night out, so we dropped Sheff off, while we did our new date night tradition of sushi and The Casual Pint. It was a really fun time, and Sheffield had a blast at the Y getting to do crafts and swimming.
Sunday was a nice lazy day – we did our mile walk down to the little free library at Sheff’s school to swap out some books. Sheff did have a 90 minute baseball practice Sunday afternoon, since they moved the playoff game up to Monday, but after that, it was just a bunch of doing nothing. I made some friendship bracelet bobby pins, and to say I’m in love with them is an understatement. I love the boho look of them, and I can make them in any color combo I want. Such a fun and relaxing little hobby.
We’ve got the championship baseball game on Saturday this weekend, and a party to celebrate the kids win or lose after. No real big plans for Father’s Day – we’ll leave that up to B, but hopefully will be fun for him regardless.
