Weekend Recap: St. Paddy's Day Parade

Happy Monday! This post is coming a little late in the day because it was a busy first day! New job started today and it went awesome!

But more about that later. This post is all about what went down this weekend.

I got off work early on Friday and K and I got to work on setting up L's big boy bed! The bed was fairly easy to put together and we had everything ready to go in time to pick little man up from daycare. We ran a couple of errands and then headed home to show our little guy his new room. His reaction: mixed. He seemed fairly excited about the bed, but not overly so and he didn't seem scared at all, which I'll take as a win! The first couple nights of him sleeping in his bed have gone well too. I'll cross my fingers this keeps up!

Saturday we woke up and got ready for the St. Paddy's Day parade! BUT not before whipping up an amazingly delicious (and super sweet) batch of Cinnamon Streusal Pancakes via Two Peas and Their Pod. They were crazy good, but definitely special occasion pancakes.

It was L's first parade and I definitely think he was a fan! He's really into animals right now, so seeing the dogs, horses and even llamas had him super excited! The fact that they threw candy into the crowd was the icing on the top! It was cold and rainy so we didn't stay for the entire parade, but for the 45 minutes or so we were there, it was a definite success!

Prior to the parade we took L to see the Easter Bunny. It went about as well as the visit to Santa this past Christmas. There was no way he was sitting on that guy's lap even with his cousin O there, so I got in the photo with him and let him sit on my lap while we got pictures taken.

We made sure to get all of our errands done on Saturday so we could have a low key Sunday! It paid off. Sunday we were able to relax as well as get in a little Sunday Funday by heading over to our favorite local brewery for a few beers and playtime.

Sunday evening was spent at home, cuddled up on the couch with my two favorite guys! The best way to end a fun weekend.

And now we're off and running with a new week!
