Today was the perfect way to spend the day. My family celebrated Easter a little early this year, so this Sunday was kind of scheduled to be a normal Sunday. But we took a different direction. Our background music was the “Pitch Perfect” soundtrack, our game of choice with Dekker was waving with both hands, and his new discovery was the sunroof 🙂
Instead of getting up for church in the morning, we slept in. I know, heathens, right? Nope, just jokes. I genuinely think that God rested on the seventh day, and that while church is a significant part of my life, once in a while, resting my body on a Sunday in this way feels amazing and not guilting at all. So we slept in and had breakfast in bed. When we got up, we gathered up all out ingredients for our baked chicken spaghetti and headed to my parents place for lunch. We had SUCH a casual afternoon with my parents. We had spaghetti and cold veggies for lunch, and played some SkipBo afterwards. Usually Brady and I stay the whole day, but this time, we headed to Saskatoon for the rest of the afternoon. We played a little at Value Village, since we can’t seem to go to Saskatoon without making an appearance there. I found two great tank tops to fill with my ever-growing belly, a bigger and fancier-looking trifle bowl, some short and super comfy little white heels that I’ll be able to walk in while being pregnant, and a cute zipper bunnyhug for Deks. 30% off for us! It was a good haul.
We had a bit of time left to kill after that so we took to our old tradition and drove around the beautiful crescents along the river. We also checked out a sweet looking house in a newer area of town that Brady is working in. We made it to the airport just in time for a pee break and found some toys for Dekker to play with while we waited for my sister’s flight to get in, exactly on time!
We brought Caity to Dalmeny and headed home. Dekker went down for night pretty much right on schedule, which almost never happens on a weekend. We had a great little cuddle first. I sang him song after song, before I realized that I had never sung him “Twinkle Twinkle Little Star,” so I tried it out and he lay unmoving on me, just staying at me and smiling, and when it was over he clapped and clapped. My little sweetheart just makes me melt.
Yes, I look tired, in my jammies, and theres paper towel on my floor. Life will go on. But my abs are sooo tired of working to hold in quite this much bloat on a daily basis, so the belly will soon be free!
A very good day. Happy Easter.
