Hi friends, happy Monday! I wish employers gave everyone the summer off so that Tyler could stay home with us when the weather’s nice. There’s so much to do! Ok, recapping the last few days:
Friday: I took Wes to the mall to get a few more short-sleeve sleepers. I ended up finding a SKIRT (insert gasp here) and flip flops for myself as well. I attempted to take Wes for a walk when we got home, but the sun was pretty hot. I managed to walk a route that was mostly shaded (almost 3 miles?) and made sure he got some of the breeze through the blanket I used to cover him from the sun. He actually slept through the walk, which allowed me to enjoy a beer on the patio while he finished off his nap! And then Tyler and I enjoyed a DELICIOUS steak dinner (made with my new favorite potato salad recipe) and watched Chappie once Wes went to sleep.
Saturday: We drove out to Canmore to have lunch at The Grizzly Paw. This was one of our favorite places to go to for a meal and definitely for beer because both are so delicious. BUT, this time was different. Not only did they put us at the most awkwardly-positioned table (for Wes’s carseat to fit) but the food was terrible, and the prices were raised! We were so disappointed that our go-to spot is now off the list. 😦 At least it was a beautiful day out so the trip wasn’t a complete waste.
We spent the rest of the afternoon hanging around the house (ummm YES to A/C!). Tyler made dirt dog sauce for dinner and we watched some PVR’d episodes of Jimmy Fallon and SNL. I think the heat and the drive wiped us out because we both went to bed early!
Sunday: GUYS–> Wes slept for 12 hours. That’s insane. Sure, it makes him stay awake for most of the day, but I’d prefer that over a crap night! I mowed the lawn and worked out before it got too hot out, then Tyler went to football practice (dumb idea- he’s a lobster now!) I was able to escape to the patio for a few minutes for some sun, but only lasted 20 minutes…if that. WOOF it was hot. The dogs wouldn’t even go out there! The rest of the day was spent doing chores and entertaining the wee one. We were in bed by 9:30 and that’s that.
What in the world is dirt dog sauce?!
There’s a restaurant in my hometown in NY that serves hot dogs with a special sauce on it and everyone calls them dirt dogs (even though that’s not what the restaurant is called or the item on the menu!) My uncle got the recipe to the secret sauce so we make it at home and it’s soooooo good!
Mmm steak! I am definitely having some of that for the 4th. Great photos!
What a bummer about Grizzly Paw – that was one of my favourites too.
The sun totally wiped me this weekend, but I’m not complaining, especially since it’s clouded over today.
so jealous of your sunny, hot weekend! the weather in Boston has been absolute crap and any bit of a tan I previously had is now goneeee.
That’s too bad you had a bad experience in Canmore! I’ve never been to that restaurant but have heard good things!! YAY for long baby sleep stretches!!!
Those hot dogs look amazing!! Perfect weekend! I tried to tan while D played in her pool and it was SO hot. I appreciated her dumping water on me instead of cursing! 🙂 YAY for 12 hours of sleep!!
I WANT THAT HOT DOG. I should come over some day so you & me can sunbathe and drink beer/wine on your deck while Tyler BBQs food for us. Yes??
Tyler needs to become a teacher so he can have the summer off 😉 I’m looking forward to having Brian home for the afternoons in July (he’s teaching summer school in the morning in July)
Now I want a hot dog!
Wes slept for 12 hours straight?! That is amazing 🙂
