What We’ve Been Up To (Catch-up)


Just some stuff we’ve been up to lately that I want to remember.

A couple weekends ago . . .

We attempted a picnic, but we got rained out.  So we just ended up driving up to our picnic spot and sitting in the car.

Wyatt practiced his driving (not really, but you know):



Derek bought me a homemade peanut butter cup (excuse my crazy hair in these pictures):


And we decided to go out for Chinese food.  Of course it was beautiful in town.  Figures.



In the restaurant:


And we ate while Wyatt chewed on my wallet (teething).


The weekend after that we bought our new car and did nothing else too exciting.  It was actually very relaxing.

Last week was my birthday, and we didn’t get a chance to do much on my actual birthday because of work and stuff.  Though Derek gave me an early present the night before my birthday.


He bought us a movie to watch and some candy!  It was a nice evening.

So we celebrated my birthday together on Saturday!  We dropped Wyatt off at my sister’s and went to see “What To Expect When You’re Expecting”.  I wish it wasn’t so crude, but I must say that Derek and I did think many of the jokes were funny.  Then we walked around a few shops, got ice cream, grabbed a pizza, and ate at home.  It was a very nice birthday!

Me and my boy:



He just looked so cute, I had to take a picture:


Walking around after the movie (though we didn’t go on any of the rides):




And I’m afraid we didn’t do very much on Father’s Day for Derek this year (just the way everything played out), so this upcoming weekend is reserved for Derek to do whatever he wants to do – which he’s mentioned wanting to work on the landscaping around here.  Doesn’t sound relaxing to me, but to Derek it is!  Wyatt did give Derek his Father’s Day present though.

It’s hard to see, but Wyatt drew all over the front of that card for Derek:


A Sawyer Brown CD:


And a picture mug!  Maybe it’s a bit cliché, but I got Derek a picture mug from Wyatt last year, and he requested an updated one this year!



And that catches us up to today!  I was obviously way behind on documenting . . .

P.S. The next installment of the friendship Link-Up will be up tomorrow - I'll be writing about making conversation this week, so kind of continuing on the making friends theme from last week. If you have anything to say on the topic of friendship, write it down and link-up! Check out the link-up details post for more ideas on what to write about.

We are going on a date night to see What to Expect on Friday and I can't wait - I don't think we've been to a movie since before Thatcher was born (yikes!)
