Long Weekend

It's official, Austin and I survived our first weekend without Juan- and it just so happened to be three days long. Unless you count the cashiers at Target and the commissary, FaceTime with the grandmas, or chatting over the phone, we interacted with no one both Saturday and Sunday. It was a pretty chill weekend, and we enjoyed every second of it.  Our windows stayed open, and the new curtains were just barely giving in to the breeze, just enough to let us know that Spring is almost here! And then the Monday blues hit. It was so nasty outside yesterday, you would have never guessed that we had just had two gorgeous days of sunshine. We checked out an indoor play center and it ended up being exactly what we needed to get through the day. I even made my first mommy friend! We exchanged numbers ;)
It's like dating all over again.

Juan sent the most beautiful arrangement of tulips to take his place on Valentine's Day, and they've been doing a pretty good job. I have to admit, I'm not big on flowers, but tulips are always my exception.

Thanks to the beautiful weather we went exploring around our neighborhood both Saturday and Sunday. We found three different parks and of course played at all of them. Not only do we have a few parks within walking distance from our house, but we also have a little convenience store. Three ninety nine for a half gallon of milk sounds mighty fine if it means I can ride my bike to get it. 

The babe is back in school today. It feels great to have a little break again, but I know by Friday I'll be ready to have him home and all to myself for the weekend. Isn't that how it always goes? Full of the devil during the day, but as soon as they fall asleep for the night you're just dying to go in and snuggle those baby cheeks. (And bottle them up and keep them young forever.)

Have a great week and stay warm Texas!
