Our Weekend

Monday, August 18, 2014
It's Monday again, which means it's time for our routine weekend recap! The past few days were filled with visits from friends and family, chalk, cheese plates, wine and a hike with my favorites. Friday evening we worked on building up Parker's dog walking skills. Oatmeal isn't the most obedient dog when it comes to walking on a leash, but she was so patient with Parker until she got the hang of it. 

I don't typically take both Parker and Oatmeal on walks together since the pup can be a little tough to manage however I decided to give it a go on Saturday morning and hoped for the best. Well, let's just say it didn't go as planned. Parker wanted nothing to do with sitting in her stroller and insisted on 'walking' Oatmeal, until of course she was over it. Which then left me trying to maneuver a dog, an empty stroller and an independent toddler through the streets. With so many moving parts (going in all different directions) I definitely just needed to keep Parker in her stroller, screaming and all, for the rest of the ride home. Unfortunately, my hands were too full to get any pictures, but I have a feeling the neighbors may have once they saw me trying to push Oatmeal in the stroller. Questionable at best.

Sunday morning, we woke up early to take Parker on a hike. We took her along with us last year but she wasn't old enough to really understand where we were. Having her on the hike with us when she can observe and take it all in was so much fun!

My favorite part was after the hike when Parker got out of her carrier for a quick granola bar. We taught her a few hamstring stretches and she gladly displayed her split (work in progress) for the spectators walking by. 

This week I hope to get together all the details for our bathroom remodel and brainstorm for Parker's 2nd (crazy) birthday party. Hope your week is off to a beautiful start, friends! xx
