So let's get started. The biggest thing that happened this weekend?! My parents decided to move closer to us! They came down to visit to look at the apartment they're going to rent one last time and they decided to take the plunge! We're so excited to have them closer to us. I think Baby Fox is the most excited because he'll be getting more of these:
Yep that's his own little personal ice cream. We don't typically give him ice cream, only when my parents are around or when we're visiting people that have ice cream. We want it to be a special treat, and not an everyday occurrence.
Saturday morning I asked Baby Fox what he wanted for breakfast and he said pancakes. Who am I to deny the request? Especially this is practically the only true carb he'll eat. Grandpa AKA "ampa" makes the best pancakes (he used to do the pancake breakfast at church), so I asked my dad to make pancakes. He happily agreed. Baby Fox wanted to watch.
Ampa and Nana left around nap time and when Baby Fox woke up we decided to just get our weekend shopping out of the way. Went to Costco, and the grocery store. While there I decided that I wanted baked potato bar for dinner...we've never done it before, just made that our meal, but it was such a good idea, and this will definitely be part of the rotation!
This is how I made the baked potato.
Wash potato, poke holes and put in microwave for 6 minutes, flip and cook until done. For our it took another 10 minutes or so. Once cooked completely, I put canola oil, garlic powder and kosher salt and put in the toaster oven at 425°F, I put them in there probably for 20-30 minutes. There isn't really a time limit, just until your desired crispy'ness. I did flip them about 10-15 minutes later.
|Mr. wanted cheese, but was too lazy to get out the shredder, so he ended up cutting it up and then put his whole potato in the microwave to melt the cheese.|
Sunday was another swim lesson.
We ran into my good friend from junior high. Actually I made our swim lesson for the same time so we would run into them :)
Swim Baby Fox swim!
This past swim lesson, Baby Fox has really been holding his breathe really well. He decided it was funny, when we did under water, to just lay there in a dead man's pose. Like face down, legs and arms dangling...he thought it was hilarious! Silly kid. At one point Mr. and Baby Fox were just fooling around, and I had to walk to the other side of the pool to tell them to pay attention and that they were missing the instructions. Gotta love my boys!
Sunday night was relaxing, watching movies and hanging out.
You know cause everyone "cheers" with their pizza slices
Fun, short weekend. Thankfully this week is my Friday off, so I get an extra day with Baby Fox, woo hoo! Here's to hoping this week goes by fast!
