Weekend in Review. Alternately Titled: Relaxation and I Could Kill My Dog.

We have had a relatively relaxing weekend. I didn't touch my big girl camera the entire weekend, which means not many fun pictures of the boys, unfortunately for you. I do have a few good stories to share, so I'll write the post anyways :)

Friday morning we went to a little playdate with some of our friends who just recently moved back to the area. It was really fun catching up and watching the littles play. Brayden may or may not have played dress up with his friend Ella. I am banned from sharing those pictures, but I assure you, they are hilarious ;) My morning quickly went downhill when I was leaving my friends house. Brayden decided that he didn't want to leave, so he started running from me. Sprinting might be a better term. At first I thought he'd come back after getting across the street and a house down. I was wrong. So by the time I was able to get Connor in the car, he was already across the street and 3 houses down the road. I got C in the car, and started sprinting towards my runaway child. He sprinted faster. So I sprinted faster. And started screaming. Because 3 houses away from Brayden was the entrance to their street. All I could envision was my child running away from me and getting slaughtered by an oncoming car. I finally caught up with Brayden. I was infuriated. He was mad I caught him. And most of the way home (after I wrangled him into the car seat) he screamed at the top of his lungs, nearly busting out the car window and desperately trying to kick a hole in the car seat. I felt like a failure as a mom. Still do kind of. I mean, how do you handle these awful, awful tantrums?! We're out of ideas. Moving on....

Friday night we had some friends over for a little barbeque. The night was so fun, and I'm so mad I didn't take any pictures. Somehow Toby got out of the fence behind the house (it backs up to dead space that is full of tall weed grass) while our friends were here. Drew and I had no idea, so when he came to the door at 9pm we didn't think anything of it. So imagine our surprise when we decided to head to bed at 11pm and saw our dog covered in grassy burrs. This was the second time he had done this this week, but this time it was so bad there was no way we were going to brush them out. So I sadly had to shave all of his fur off. I was so sad, because honestly, Cairn Terriers look like small rats when they don't have their fur. Toby wasn't too keen on the idea either. Poor baby was a trooper. And Drew and I weren't very thrilled with having to shave a dog until 12:30am on a Friday night.

this picture doesn't even do it justice. Bur city in Toby's fur.
not too happy about getting his furs cut off :(
I think he's embarrassed. Can't say I don't blame him. Poor guy!

Saturday Drew helped some friends move. I spent the morning running errands and then the afternoon was spent doing yard work and swimming together as a family... rough life :)

This morning we served in the nursery at church, and then came home for naps. Drew left for a short bike ride while we napped, and then we all met up at the splash park in the afternoon. We made it fun by getting Sonic drinks, but unfortunately our fun ended pretty quickly when a rain storm came through. Brayden was not very happy about leaving early, but we made ammends by letting the boys play in the rain when we got home :)

We have a pretty busy week ahead of us, which I'm looking forward to since it will keep our minds off the fact that the summer heat is back again :/ Hope yall have a great week!
