This weekend was a good one. A little basketball, a little bike riding, and a whole lot of relaxing and good food.
Friday afternoon I picked JJ up from school and on the way to get Teddy I was like, “lets use that year pass we have and hit up the museum!” So we left the pick up line at Teddy’s school and headed over to the Museum of Life and Science. You guys, it was the best.idea.ever. There was hardly anyone there, in fact we had a lot of the spaces totally to ourselves. The girls ran around the treehouse for about as long as I could handle being in the cold, then we went back inside to explore some of our favorite places. I savored the latte I grabbed on the way in and the girls built some impressive structures with the giant foam blocks.
We left the museum about 5 minutes before they closed and met Corey for dinner at Dashi, a ramen bar in downtown Durham. The only thing I was craving all week was noodle-y, broth-y ramen and as usual Dashi did not disappoint. It really did do my body good.
Saturday afternoon was a first for us. JJ started basketball this winter and had her first game this weekend. We have officially jumped into the world of kid sports, and I’m telling you, I think I’ve found my people. The first time they put jovia in, I was screaming and yelling encouragement from the sideline. I looked at Corey when I realized no one else was being quite so vocal and said “oh, are we not supposed to yell?” Ha! A lot of the other parents soon got in the spirit and the kids all looked like they were having a great time. I’m telling you–there might not be much cuter in the world than little inexperienced kids playing basketball. I almost couldn’t handle how adorable everyone was being!
We took the girls around the corner to baby Scratch after the game and had some delicious pie and an Americano (for mommy ;)).
And this girl decided to start looking like a teenager. Geez. You let a kid play one game of basketball and all of the sudden she’s all grown up! 😉
At least she still lets me hug her 😉
I don’t have one single picture of our day Sunday because I basically didn’t get out of my jammies all day long. We read books, took naps, baked cookies, and Corey made us an incredible dinner of Coq Au Vin. It was the perfect end to the weekend. We woke up Monday morning ready to get back at it!
