Summer weekend

18 Jun

Braxtyn and I were on our own pretty much all weekend. The husband has a friend in town so he was gone the whole day Saturday and Sunday he was golfing all day, but we had fun nonetheless.

Saturday there was a thunderstorm in the afternoon, which Braxtyn slept through. When he woke up I told him he had to eat dinner and then we could go get ice cream. Of course, he inhaled his food and off we went.

He was excited because the chocolate ice cream I ordered for him had candy “eyes” and I also bought us popcorn so we could hop on over to the beach after we ate our treat to watch the sunset.

Date night with my little guy! We sat on a bench and watched the sun setting over lake Michigan as we ate our popcorn. Braxtyn kept saying, “Night night sun.”

As we drove back home, we passed the cemetery where my dads ashes are buried. Even though he’s been gone for a year, my sister and I finally had his remains buried on Wednesday. I told Braxtyn, “Say goodnight to Grandpa John, he’s in there sleeping.” And he said, “Night night Grandpa John.” It was so sweet.

        Can’t wait to see you guys again too! We will have to take our little guys to the beach, although we probably wouldn’t last that long if it’s super hot 🙂

Say something!
