Darn near perfect weekend...

We had yet another great weekend! Friday started off great with Dan coming home early and the family going for a bike ride together. These bike rides have started to be so much fun. Dan got me the bike trailer for my birthday. We loaded the twins in it, hooked it up to his bike and with me on my bike and Harrison on his, we rode for about 2.5 miles. This is about as long as Harrison can go right now.

Saturday was beautiful. I got up and ran my 8 miles and by the time I was done, everyone else was getting up. We did a little house-cleaning (I did the inside, Dan did the outside), went out to lunch, came home, put the twins down for naps and I laid on the hammock for a nice nap myself. A neighbor made us some mango juleps for the Kentucky Derby-which were quite tasty! We went out for dinner to a local seafood place, came home and hung out with some neighbors for a little bit! I also made some homemade ice cream in my new ice cream maker-vanilla with peanut butter chips-AMAZING!

Sunday we went to church. The twins are doing so well in the nursery and Harrison was in Sunday school, so Dan and I were able to sit in the sanctuary by ourselves. It was nice, but felt odd being without the boys! After church, we made lunch, put the boys down, and laid on the hammock some more! When the boys woke up, we loaded up and headed to the beach for a little while. I wish I would have taken the camera. Brady and Jack loved it! On the way home, we picked up some burgers (made with shredded cheddar and bacon-YUM!) and sides from a local market and threw them on the grill. It couldn't have been a nicer weekend! Only 5 more days until the next one. Here is a picture of Brady and Jack wanting to come outside sooooo bad-too funny!

Sounds FANTASTIC! I love the pictures of the boys...A does the same thing when someone goes out without her. Her favorite word is currently "Ah-dide!" which she says over and over and over until we finally let her go out.

What a wonderful weekend! Isn't the bike trailer great?? I love it and have been trying to use it more for short little errands and such.

Hammock + Beach = Amazing weekend

Congrats on another great run.

Which ice cream maker did you end up getting? And did you use a fancier recipe than "basic no-cook vanilla"?
