Our Weekend.

Saturday sink bath with dad.

Swinging on the wooden swings at the flea market.

Looking at all the cheap crap at the flea market.

If you ever need a bra for a dollar (about fifteen colors to choose from), a stun gun, a spray painted Michel Jackson t-shirt, or a Samurai sword- our flea market is your place.

Our real reason for visiting though was to look at the puppies. Garrison likes to daydream about getting one soon and I think he was running out of daydream material. Henry loved sticking his hands through the cages and letting the dogs lick his hands and he'd laugh like a crazy kid every time. Someday, Henry. Someday, Garrison.

On the go diaper changes in the car have become much trickier these days. I remember when his little body fit perfectly on that seat. What happened?
On Sunday, we had barbecued in our front lawn. It was 80 degrees and all of the neighbors were sitting outside too,listening to the radio and singing "My Girl" by the Temptations at the top of their lungs. The whole thing felt like summer, only it's almost the end of October. Southern weather is weird and completely backwards sometimes.

Eating dinner on the porch.

Sears is running a special right now, a free 10 x 13 photo with any background of your choice for FREE. We randomly picked up a coupon at the store while we were waiting for our car's oil to be changed and had some photos taken of him in front of this super cheesy moon scene. They look awesome and you totally can't beat free.

We went to a pumpkin patch with the kids I work with and they kept piling pumpkins in his stroller. The lady kept looking at me like I was trying to sneak a bunch of them out with me. In Washington, pumpkin patches are actual farms where you go and actually pick your pumpkin right from the vine. In the south, a pumpkin patch is any designated spot where pre-picked pumpkins have been neatly placed across the ground. Don't worry, they totally put hay bales and scarecrows around them so it feels more legit.

Of course we had a ton of moments like this throughout the weekend, but there were also a bunch like this:

Garrison and I also got to go out (minus baby!) and I had an entire Saturday morning to myself. My nanny boss took me to the spa and out to lunch and I seriously feel like a whole new person. This deserves an entire post of its own though, because getting away for a date with my husband and out of the house without Henry is like, the hugest deal now. It's really pathetic.

Hope you all had a great weekend as well! I can't wait to catch up on all of your lovely blogs!

So jealous of your lovely weather. I have been wearing my winter coat and experiencing near-freezing temperatures for the last month! And January-February are typically the coldest winter months here. I may never survive! :)
