Birthday-Adjacent Weekend

Birthday-Adjacent Weekend

The weekend surrounding Remi’s birthday was just so much fun.

Saturday morning, I gave Remi an early birthday present.  Her sweet friend Connor sent her a birthday present (I work with his momma…and it was his birthday weekend, too!) and she was SO EXCITED about her new outfit.  She tried to put the pants on right away!

We were just going to hang at home, but Tyler saw a post on Facebook about our town’s Fall Festival getting set up- so we got changed and headed to town.  The park was transformed with fun booths, food trucks, inflatables, hay rides and more fun.

Remi was finally big enough to climb the inflatable by herself! She loved it!  And her little friend Lyla was there, too and they enjoyed playing together.

We went on a hayride around the park and Remi loved it.  We laughed though- the hay was poking her, and she figured out to sit on her paper fan.  (And don’t worry, we got LOTS of feedback about her. *insert eye roll*  On the hayride, she said she had to potty, and we were telling her to hold it and we would find a bathroom when we finished.  A lady commented “Isn’t she a little young for that?” Ugh. #mindyourown)

We got some snacks and food- mini donuts, shaved ice and egg rolls.  Yum.  Remi was a big fan of the donuts.

After her birthday we went back to Mimi’s house to swim. It was warm enough and my mom has a heater for the pool.  I didn’t get in, but Remi enjoyed swimming with the family.  The view out there is gorgeous.

Sunday morning, I set up all her birthday gifts. It was like Christmas.  She went between all the presents and was loving it.  She started with her princess shoes and gloves, then played basketball and built with her magnatiles.  Well rounded.

Sunday morning, we had a bit of a birthday hangover and she was SHOWING her two-year-old-ed-ness.  But she looked precious.  And after her nap she was much better.

I got some snuggles which are always great.  And it was my last Sunday afternoon snuggles with my one year old (she turned two the next morning).

The weather was beautiful, so Sunday night, she got to play in her water table.  And she happily dumped water on her head.  Silly goose.

A super fun weekend for all!

  1. Look, I don’t have kids, but like …. why in the world would a person ever feel comfortable talking to another parent about the right age for potty training? It doesn’t make sense. MIND YOUR OWN BUSINESS. IT DOES NOT AFFECT YOU. I do not get this.

    ANYWAY. Happy birthday, Remi! You look so big. And I love every bow on your head. Someday I will get to meet you and tell you in person how much I love you!

    • Right? It’s oddly enough been the thing the most people have commented on (which is strange, since it’s sort of private….) But I’ll ask her if she needs to potty before we leave Target and some random lady will make a comment. WHAT THE HECK? She will LOVE Auntie Georgie! And she’ll totally share her bows with you. 🙂
