But that wasn't the case this past weekend, and I was so grateful for that! Friday night, Jake had a baseball game...I forgot to get pictures but GG and Pappy were able to come and the boys did a great job on the field!
Saturday morning was a divide and conquer kind of morning....Jake and Brian had baseball pictures followed by a practice starting at 8:15am; Liam had t-ball at 10.
We met back at home and all had lunch together, then headed back out for the Steelers Fan Blitz, which I posted about here. That night, we pretty much all crashed by the time we came back home and threw something together for dinner...but it was so nice to spend the whole afternoon together. No other work, no distractions.
Sunday morning, we headed to church and it was nice and warm out already when we came out of Sunday School, so the kids hit the playground there for a little bit before we headed home:
We headed home and started to tackle the giant pile of mulch that had been delivered on Saturday. Remember my post from last week about how Liam refuses to change out of whatever clothes he started in for the day? That was the case again on Sunday....who wouldn't want to spread mulch in their church clothes??
We didn't get all of the mulch done, but we put a really good dent in the pile. We grilled dinner, ate outside on the patio, and enjoyed some homemade milkshakes for dessert. Everyone was disgustingly dirty and incredibly exhausted by the end of the day (my arms are still sore!), so I would say those are signs of a fun and productive day.
