We spent a lot of time outside this weekend, although it rained off and on. On Saturday, Chloe and I went to the Farmer’s Market and David took the day to go fishing. This time we stopped to enjoy a marimba and drum performance, which brought back memories of high school, playing marimba in the drum corp. We also munchedÂ on a lot of freshly popped kettle corn. Afterwards, despite the cool weather, I let Chloe gleefully play in the park fountains along with some other adventuresome kids. She seems to have caught a little cold, though, so maybe that wasn’t the best idea.
Other highlights from our weekend include working in the garden/playing in the dirt, blowing lots of bubbles, a little last minute baby shopping and going with Chloe and David to the pool on Sunday. I don’t know that I’ve ever seen Chloe so excited to be somewhere, but she LOVES the pool. It was so good to see her laughing and splashing with such confidence. The smile hardly left her face for a moment. Luckily it is something that she and her daddy can do together, because once the baby comes I’m thinking I won’t be able to join them for a while.
Besides all the good stuff, I also had two noteable not-so-pleasant moments. One included this surprise crawling up my leg in the car, the day after David went fishing. While I know that stoneflies are harmless, they are ugly and very big. Not something you want to look down and see while you are driving. The second included someone’s poor parking job next to my car at Babies R Us. Even if I wasn’t hugely pregnant I wouldn’t have been able to fit between the cars to get to the driver’s door. Instead I had to awkwardly lumber in through the passenger door. Either this person was simply oblivious, or downright thoughtless, neither things I appreciate.
What about you? Did you have a nice weekend?
