Happy Monday & Thanksgiving Week! Today feels a little bit like a Friday (minus all of the house cleaning & laundry I spent all morning doing) because after today, Nic has the rest of the week off with us!! It made the weekend blowing by in a fury a little less painful because man it went fast.
Our weekend was the perfect mix of productive and fun! We spent most of the day on Saturday working on the bed frame we are building for Liam's big boy room. Nic did all of the cutting and began the assembly process while I did all of the sanding. Five hours later and I could feel muscles on fire in my forearms and shoulders that I never even knew I had! haha Can't wait to share more pictures when it is all finished but here is a sneak peak for now ...
Liam happily played in the sandbox all bundled up while we worked. If he had it his way, no season would be inappropriate for playing in a sandbox, he loves it so much!
Saturday evening we took Liam to Lava Hot Springs for the first time. At his two year wellness visit a few weeks ago our pediatrician told us it was okay for him to try hot tubbing so we felt like with these brisk evenings we've been having, it would be the perfect time. Not only did the hot springs feel incredible on those sore muscles I mentioned earlier but it was so much fun watching Liam's face light up as we dipped his toes in the warm water for the first time! When he wasn't begging to be held on his stomach while he practiced swimming, he was waving his arms around and splashing the water everywhere. The bottom of the hot springs pools were covered in pebble gravel and I would scoop up handfuls for him and he would try to squeeze every last pebble in his palm before throwing them in the air like confetti! No pictures from our time there (it was too dark and we left my camera and Nic's phone in the car) but those memories we made together are some that I will never forget.
Hope you all had a wonderful weekend! XO
