Another weekend gone

Again, I am not a good weekend blogger! I can't believe we are another week closer to August. This month is flying by. Friday for some reason, we ended up going out to eat. I really didn't feel like cooking, but lately that's been the normal. So anyway, we went to a local Mexican restaurant. I have been craving Mexican food for a while now. And still want more, haha! I was a little worried how Ethan was going to act. Last time we went out to eat, he was horrible. The high chair strap was broken, and wouldn't latch. He quickly figured out that he could stand up and get out if he wanted to. And of course, he wanted to. We asked for a new one and it too was broke. Anyway, it was a bad experience. So I had no idea what we were going to get from him this time, but I was a little worried. I was a little prepared for this one though. I grabbed an extra strap that we had here and took it with us. Sure enough the high chair we got had a broken clip, so it wouldn't latch. So I quickly pulled out the strap I brought and strapped him down. So I guess now, I have to provide my own safety strap when we go out to eat. Has anyone else noticed a problem with high chairs in restaurants? Why is there an issue? The meal was good, Ethan was good. It was a decent experience. We had a nice waitress. She was so good. Very friendly and kept my drink refilled. It was such a nice change from other service we've seemed to get recently.
Saturday we stayed around here. I got a few things done in the morning and in the evening we had a bunch of friends over for dinner. Ryan put a whole bunch of chicken legs in the smoker along with 2 racks of baby back ribs. Dinner was a big success, everyone enjoyed themselves and the kids played well together. I tried putting Ethan to bed at his normal time, but he wouldn't give in. He stood back there in his crib just whining. We finally got tired of it and just brought him back out here. I think he knew that everyone was still here and didn't want to miss anything. So he stayed up way past bedtime. But he was good. Thankfully. We were so exhausted that night.
Sunday Ryan had somethings to do in the morning, and I had to get the house back to normal and cleaned up. Once he got home and I got everyone fed, I went shopping for shorts. Did you know that until now, I haven't had any? Yeah. So now maybe I can get a tan on my legs and not be so hot when I am outside. It was nice being out by myself too. I don't always enjoy being out by myself, but this time I did. I think it is just what I needed. I felt so refreshed when I got back! We don't have any big plans for the week. Ethan has his check-up on Wednesday. Other than that, nothing going on. I don't think we have any plans for the weekend either. It is just supposed to be very very hot out this week. It was nasty this morning that's for sure. Its an oven out there. And supposed to get worse mid week. Yuck.


  1. I hate restaurant high chairs! They're either dirty or have broken straps.

  2. Oh my gosh- I had a diffident idea for dinner- but now I am thinking I need Mexican food- that sounds so good.
