We had a fun filled weekend this weekend. I'm pretty sure that it met every one of Brayden's dreams. He was one happy boy when I put him to bed on Sunday night.
Friday was the annual toy land that Walmart puts on in November. We've been the past two years. I think this is a relatively new event, and each year it gets a little more crazy as more people learn about it. The lines were out. of. control. this year. We waited in line for 10 minutes for Santa. Brayden told Santa he wanted chewing gum for Christmas. Good to know expectations are low this year ;)
Friday night after toyland Drew took Brayden for coffee and some hot chocolate. Brayden had been asking for Drew to take him to a coffee shop on a "date". He was very specific about which coffee shop he wanted to go to (a local one that we pass a lot when we're out and about), and what he wanted ("warm" chocolate, because hot chocolate is too hot). After the coffee shop Drew ended up stopping by the local high school football game. Drew sent me this picture of Brayden in the end zone. I love that he loves football :) Maybe we'll be watching him on this field in 13 years?
Saturday was pretty laid back. Drew took the boys hiking while I went grocery shopping. Saturday evening Drew built a fire in the backyard and we roasted hotdogs and marshmallows with our neighbor, Al. The boys absolutely adore Al, and were so excited to enjoy an outdoor fire with him.
Today was laid back as well. It included church (which we were late for, even though we had an extra hour thanks to Daylight Savings Time) and not much else. The boys played outside for most of the afternoon, which was a perfect ending to a perfect weekend.
Hope everyone has a good week!
