Weekend Update: 1/20/13

It was such a great weekend here. We didn’t have any specific plans, no places to go. .. we kept busy, but it was the perfect weekend to re-charge, have lots of play time and lots of laughs!

Luke got to hang out in Child Watch at the YMCA while I co-taught my 2nd BODYPUMP class. Yeah! It went really well and is so much fun! Smile 


It was 44 degrees here on Friday afternoon, so I had to take advantage and take Luke for a run. He promptly fell asleep for the whole time! It was still crazy windy – as it always is here in Mankato – but still you can’t complain about running in shorts in January in MN!


He was sleeping so hard that he didn’t even wake up when I took him out of the stroller, carried him into the house, took off my shoes, and carried him to the nursery. He slept like that for another 2 hours!


And then we had Luke’s 9 month check up. He is doing great! Really liked the paper covering the exam table!


Errands on Saturday – Menards, Target, the Mall, Sam’s Club. . . IMG_3145IMG_3146

First yogurt at Sam’s club – thanks to sample day!


Then, lunch at the new BBQ place in town – Dickey’s. IMG_3151IMG_3153
Someone had his first ice cream cone.
He loved putting his hands in it.  ..

but not so much in his mouth. . . IMG_3160IMG_3161

he was much happier with just the cone – no ice cream! IMG_3162IMG_3163IMG_3166IMG_3167

And on Sunday morning, we had lots of fun playing. . . just an idea of how busy he is!


And his new favorite toy. .. an empty toothpaste tube – seriously, it is like all he has played with this weekend! Winking smile

Other happenings this weekend: Taught water aerobics Saturday morning, 9 mile run this morning (half marathon next weekend!), lots of body pump practicing, made a yummy cheesecake, and we booked a trip to Jackson Hole, WY with some friends in March.

And finally a random picture from a few weeks ago when we were at Scott’s brother’s house – his girlfriend, Ashley, got an inverter for Christmas to help with her back. And of course, I had to try it out. . . and Scott had to take a picture! And he told me that it needs to go on the blog. . . so here we go! You basically hang upside down and it is supposed to take the stress off your back. . . It was a weird feeling! But obviously fun, based on my expression! Smile 


Did you have a good weekend? What were you up to?

  1. Your family is so busy, but it all looks really fun 🙂 Yay for a healthy 9 month check-up, but something must be wrong if Luke doesn’t like ice cream?! This has me concerned!

      There totally must be something wrong with him! LOL. He really liked eating some bites of my cheesecake last night so maybe he will turn out ok. 😉

  2. Oh my goodness! What a great weekend and what amazing pictures! It is obvious that he goes a mile a minute 🙂

  3. Luke’s face eating that ice-cream is priceless! We used to give my nephew a lemon to suck on and then snap a photo. His facial expression was similar to Luke’s and it was hilarious!

    And 44 degrees in Florida would mean everyone was running in pants, long sleeves and a jacket (if they even wanted to ‘brave the cold’)! Too funny that you ran in shorts! I think 44 degrees is chilly, but still good running weather!

  4. How cute is your little dude! You’re brave running in shorts in 44 degrees…that would still warrant pants for me;-) I ran my first marathon in Mankato in ’12; very windy, but a great experience!

      oh thanks! it is always windy in mankato. I haven’t run the marathon here yet – it does run right past my house though!
