Weekending. . . Luke turns 4 + Ladies Alive

Happy Monday! I’m off to work this morning after a great weekend. . . I don’t think I could have squeezed anything more into the past few days.

Luke celebrated his 4th birthday at school on Friday.


And after school we hit the road for my Mom’s house. And I am SO happy that it’s finally warm enough for iced coffee season!


We celebrated a little early on Friday night because we had such a busy day on Saturday. Luke didn’t mind. Winking smile 


Making a wish. .  . and blowing out the candles.


And I love that my sister shared this on facebook. . . I don’t think I ever saw this post when Luke was born. Love.


On Saturday, I drove down to Rochester for an AdvoCare event – Ladies Alive


It was a fun day hearing inspiring AdvoCare stories and hanging with some lovely ladies.


Another highlight was this cute bag + all the goodies inside!


And then back in the car to join my husband at the wedding of a good friend from high school.

of course. . . cupcakes. Smile 


After the wedding, I drove back to Mom’s house and packed Luke up in the car to head home.

When Luke woke up, he came and snuggled with me and I asked him how it felt to be 4 and was it any different from being 3? “Yup, Mom. My arms are longer now that I’m 4!” Seriously, that kid. Winking smile 

We spent the day with no agenda. . .

we worked on our Lego building skills. .  .


Soaked in some 70 degree sunshine with a 4 mile run + silly faces.


Post-run smoothies.


Haircut! I swear that he grows up by 10 year every time he gets a haircut!


More sunshine = park time. I told Scott (who was spending the day working at the Lake place on staining the new dock), that I would bet money based on what I saw from Luke playing at the park that he will have a broken bone and/or stiches before the summer is out. Kid is fearless. I can’t count the number of times I heard “No Mom! Don’t help me. I got it.” Which was fine. . . until we got to the monkey bars, sorry Luke, I don’t think you “got it” yet. #fourgoingonfourteen


The rest of the night was spent doing laundry (because it never ends), getting ready for the week and playing play d’oh.

Hope you had a great one. . . what were you up to?

I am linking up with Katie (and Erin) for Marvelous in my Monday!

  1. Love Luke’s new haircut! Your weekend sounds like it was pretty awesome. I spent most of mine doing some heavy duty spring cleaning and gardening. I feel so accomplished right now!
