Our Weekend: Playdates, Appliances and Remembering our Veterans

Where in the world have I been? Yikes! We close on two houses this week, I had parent-teacher conferences last week and Chad got a crazy promotion at work...we have been quite busy!! :)


Friday night was date night with Grandpa (my dad), as always! This week, we decided on Red Robin. There's nothing better than a huge burger on a blistery night. Well, there are lots of better things, but that's what fit our fancy that night. 

Saturday morning, we headed out to stop for appliances. I have a feeling that you will be seeing lots of weekends like this until our house is finished (in ten months). Cameron was a trooper, as always, and even got a lollipop from one of the guys who worked at Agren Appliance. Do you know how expensive appliances are? Holy smokes...the only saving grace is that we will get a free dishwasher with our range. 

Saturday afternoon, we relaxed and let Cam run wild in the house. I always feel badly when we cart him around from store to store! We were invited to some friends' house for a pizza and beer playdate on Saturday night - my favorite kind of playdate! 

Robyn and Alex have Oscar, who's just 3 months older than Cameron. They are about to get Oscar's brother, Waylon, in just a week or two. They adopted Oscar then stayed in contact with his parents. When Robyn and Alex decided that they wanted another, they asked his parents to make a sibling for Oscar. They obliged, and he will be here before we know it!

Oscar and Cam wanted to take a bath together, so they splashed, played and drank each other's bath water. Ick. Whatever works, boys! When they were done, there was some "nakey-time" then play time again. These boys couldn't get enough of each other! (And Oscar has the best toys, so Cam was in heaven!)

On Sunday morning, we did another appliance run, but this time to New Hampshire. On our way, we stopped at Liz and Jay's house to meet baby Luca. Sofia is about 5 months older than Cam, so she controls that relationship. ;)

They weren't very thrilled about having their picture taken together!

How in the world did I not get a picture of sweet Luca? I got to hold him for almost an hour and he just slept and looked at me the entire time...talk about baby fever!! 

Anyways, the rest of Sunday was spent running errands, per usual, while Chad worked then we treated ourselves to Otto pizza (the best in Portland, hands down) and a relaxing evening.

Monday was Veterans' Day, of course, so Cam and I got the spend the entire day together. We went to Open Gym at Tumble Tikes, and he had such a great time...until he stepped right off a block and got a bloody nose and mouth. It really didn't faze him, and he was quite PO'ed when I wouldn't let him keep playing...BOYS! 

Sunday night, we wanted to take my dad out for Veterans' Day, but we chose Olive Garden who gave him a free meal! What a nice tribute to our Veterans. We still got to spend time with my dad and thank him for his services, even if we couldn't pay for his dinner.

We had a crazy busy weekend, but a fun one! Cameron is at SUCH a fun age, so anything we do is entertaining. He tests us sometimes, but all-in-all, he's an amazingly sweet child who listens very well. 

I hope you all had a great weekend and stay warm this week!!



  1. Sounds like so much fun :) Cute pictures of the your little guy and his friends! I agree appliances are sooo expensive :(

  2. We love Red Robin! Mostly because the atmosphere is great for loud toddlers. ;-) Maddy loves getting the balloons too so mom and dad can have some adult beverages and enjoy dinner. It's a win-win for everyone!
