Favorite Weekend Highlights

I am just sitting down for the first time today. The weekend flew by and we had a blast enjoying the 70 degree weather. Caroline's nap time is fleeting as she is fighting her second nap of the day now. So I wanted to pop in and quickly share some of my favorite highlights from the weekend.

The weather was gorgeous on Saturday. We spent the morning at Pullen Park with friends. This is the second weekend in the row we had went to Pullen Park and I see us going there all the time during the summer. It is not your typical park and has several different amusement rides including kiddie boats, paddle boats, a carousel and train along with multiple playgrounds and sand activities for different ages. Caroline is not quite walking yet but we still had a blast on the swings, carousel and train.

Joe had the great idea to grill out one night for dinner. I just love veggies on the grill and devoured some corn on the cob and grilled onion. I also rediscovered these chicken sausages which are amazing on the grill.

While this may not seem like a big deal for most, we finally installed a baby gate! We have been on edge since Caroline started crawling toward the stairs with purpose. We always try to keep her corralled upstairs with the sectional sofa and away from the landing. She finally had figured us out and became frustrated with our barriers. After much research, we installed this retract a gate using a banister kit. It's so easy to install and use. It's not a complete eyesore either which is great! 

The rest of the weekend was spent enjoying long walks as a family and enjoying ice cream on the couch. 

How was your weekend? What were some of the highlights?

  1. We installed baby gates at the top of our staircases a couple months ago but I'm thinking we're going to have to put them at the bottom now too. Madeline is also crawling with purpose towards all things dangerous. I like that that gate isn't an eyesore.

  2. Awesome weekend! So jealous of your weather. It snowed here on Saturday!

  3. I love those chicken sausages too! That park sounds so fun!
