This weekend has been wonderfully busy as only a late summer weekend can be. Saturday was the Great Latch On, we were one of over a hundred mama/baby pairs there. I even won a door prize! That is something that doesn’t happen often, I am miserable at raffles.
From there, we went to PaperSource to pick up envelopes that would fit the pictures I wanted to send out with the thank you notes. So that task can actually get done. They’re all put together and mostly addressed at this point, I only have a couple more return addresses to add to them.
After a long nap in our driveway, we went to the Maryland Science Center with friends. We will be going more often as we just got a family membership. It was a little crazy there with all the kids, but we had fun, The Baby Dragon is apparently perfectly capable of climbing up and down a 5 foot tall ships ladder with only minimal hovering by his parents.
Today we woke up at a leisurely nine am, had eggs and guacamole for breakfast, and proceeded to get some housework done. Papa tested some wire brushes on the rusty porch railing and decided that we really do need the dremel tool to get into the corners before priming and repainting it. So he went to Home Depot while I watched the Dragon and attempted to coordinate picking up a slide from a friend.
When he got home, I stepped out to return library books and pick up the slide. Which had to be strapped to the outside of the hood of the car. Thank goodness for bungee cords. When I got that home, everyone helped assemble it, and by help, I mean climbed all over it and used the slide while I attempted to tighten screws. Then weeding, more weeding, and yet more weeding, dinner, and nursing the Dragon to sleep while papa started diaper laundry.
All in all, a wonderful weekend. Sunny and full.
Todo this week: Actually mail the thank you notes, packages of returns, and a sold wrap.
Todo this week: More weeding.
