*Sidenote- we've had to get him 3 times in the past month for diaper rash issues, this is a whole ranty post on it's own but let's just say I was NOT happy to have to leave work early to get him for what in my opinion was really not a problem.
We did make the best of our extra time together and after he woke up from his nap (which actually gave me time to get some work done from home) we headed to Target with daddy to stock up on some much needed (and some not needed) items.
Kristian learned a valuable lesson, you can't just "browse" the toy aisle WITH the child unless you plan to go home with a really annoying new toy. See above.
Saturday morning we headed out for some yard sailing and scored an awesome bike trailer for Hunter to ride in when Kristian goes on his bike rides. He's been wanting one for awhile so that he could actually ride his bike more often in the afternoons but they are pretty pricey. We scored one in great condition for $45! We then headed to the store to get Hunter a helmet. My big headed/big brained child needed one for ages 8+! The others were just a bit too small and this one fits more comfortably with room to grow. **It also fits me!
He actually hates wearing the helmet and freaked out when we put it on him at home to put him in the bike trailer. Hopefully he'll get used to it soon.
Later in the day since it was so beautiful out we took Hunter to the pool. About 30 minutes after we got there our neighbors showed up with their little boy Zachary who is 2 1/2. Hunter and Zachary are BFF's and love playing together out in front of the houses. Hunter was SO excited to see his buddy, he immediately put down the snack he was eating and got back in the water on his own to go play.
Zachary was splashing Hunter and making him crack up. Look at the smile on Hunters face.
One thing I didn't mention last week was that this past Saturday was the 5 year anniversary of Kristian and my first date! We went to our favorite sushi restaurant to celebrate and brought the best thing we've done in the past 5 years with us to dinner.
Hunter does NOT like sushi, however he loved the Miso soup and rice.
We then headed home to watch the rest of the Redskins game, which they won! Hope they keep this up during the real season.

Sunday was a lot of laying around. I went to the pool alone during naptime (it was blissful) and we just hung out and did stuff around the house. Kristian wasn't feeling well but a few Hunter kisses helped make things better.
So even though our plans changed we had a very nice weekend together as a family. Hopefully the weather holds up and we can make it down to the beach house this weekend for Labor Day.
