The Kind You Just Want More of.... {Weekend Recap}

I know we all have those weekends we wish would never end.

This was truly one of those weekends.
Hubs and I took some time out for just the two of us, then spent hours in the sun with our boys and the rest of our weekend was surrounded with as much family and friends we could fit in the backyard.

That time for just the two of us? yea that was spent downtown Richmond in a crowd of 32,000+. We had no wrist bands, no haute outfits, instead we wore race bibs and running shoes. Up bright and early we got our youngest to the sitter and said goodbye to our sleepy tween. After waiting WAY TOO LONG in line for parking, shuttle bussing, and porta-pottying we finally joined the wave one behind what we'd signed up for. All was well and Afrojack began my soundtrack for a 6.2 mile race along side the best running buddy a girl could ask for. High fives, a quick dry heave, and Florida Georgia Line Remix concluded those 62 minutes.
(more on those 2 minutes and all that fun later!)

Lance is already showing signs of the dreaded teenage years. He'll be 13 this summer (yes, I know CRAZY!!) and the typical sleeping late, "I know more than you", and this is what the cool kids wear issues are slowly creeping in. We got home from the race around 12ish and walked right in to him passed out on the couch. Rough night of partying kid? When did he grow up so fast? We reeled him back into reality with lunch cooked on the grill and playtime outside in the summer like weather. There was so much to get done in prep for Landon's bday that his help watching and playing with Landon was hugely appreciated!!

Getting a 2 year old to sit pretty in an attempt to recreate last years birthday pic was a dream I had to let go. While I'm thinking I may get him in agreement with this idea later in the week, this just wasn't on his list of things to do on his birthday!!! Couldn't blame him, there were trucks, balls, friends, grandma's, grandpa's and chocolate cake to worry about. Oh and lawn mowers. Little Landon is still my barefoot baby and he's still so in love with anything daddy can when gifted with a kid style lawn mower crank sound effects in all, he lost sight of everything else. It went down as his proudest moment ever to start up that mower and cut grass. My BFF long time caught in him playing in the balls and collaged it against last years pic.....

uh, how awesome is that?! Look at all the changes in one year! I'm forever grateful that she caught these pics and love looking at them together!! Naturally I'd be the first to like it and if allowed by IG I'd keep liking it 100 times over! Landon was such a good boy at his party, he loved each and every present and more than that, he loved up on everyone. He got uber bashful during the Happy Birthday song, something we'd practiced all week and wouldn't tell a soul how old he was but I think he knew this was a day all about him.
I know he loved every minute of it :)

Once I crack through all 300 thousand pics from Saturdays race and Sundays birthday party, you can bet I'll post more. And hopefully, fingers crossed I'll get the perfect pic with those letters T.W.O.

Happy Monday ALL!!! 
Hope your weekend was filled with love and happiness!
We've got Lance's first track meet today, so excited for this!!!

Congrats on your race! And i love the side by side pictures of your little one! After my youngest nephew's 2nd birthday I found a picture of my sister's older boy at his 2nd birthday party and it was so sweet to compare the two pictures of the boys in the same high chair with cake all over their chubby cheeks!

Alex[andra] said...

What a perfect weekend, friend! You are amazing for all you do--and you've inspired me to start training for a 5K with my dad :D we're hoping to enter one in the fall!!
