This Monday has actually been a pretty good one. No complaints here. We painted leaves in class and then I made a cheesy fall bulletin board. Pretty solid start to the week, if I say so myself.
This weekend, though, was a mix of awful and awesome. We headed to Boone, NC right after work on Friday. Maddux had a meltdown in the car on the way, but we didn’t think too much of it. By the time we got ready for bed, we could tell something was up. He ended up having a fever of 102 degrees. We gave him some Motrin, let him sleep with us, and wished for the best. We woke up the next morning and he was perfectly fine. Apparently mountain air is the cure for everything. I hate that he felt so terrible but I’m stoked it lasted less than 24 hours. Silver lining, folks.
Now that you’re all filled in on stuff you don’t care about, let’s talk about more stuff you don’t care about. As usual, I’m going to do this weekend recap “two sentences per picture” style.
We had a decent view, I guess. I know I said I love the beach, but this is pretty close to perfect.
We let our toddler pick anything he wanted in the entire general store, and he only spent 10 dollars and got one piece of candy. Not my kid.
I always have to find my “vacation buffalo shrimp”. This amazingness was found at Canyons in Blowing Rock.
I wish I had ordered three times that number of shrimp, because my toddler and husband stole 80 percent of them. I’m planning my revenge as we speak.
I decided I wanted a serene photo of us looking down from the mountain top. He decided to have a panic attack because I wouldn’t let him walk down to the bottom.
Running down a mountain is hard work. Running back up a mountain is much, much worse.
I’m too embarrassed to admit how long it took to get a semi-decent picture. Toddlers just don’t care about your plans to hang a canvas on the wall.
You know what everyone cares about? S’mores.
That’s about it. We didn’t push it too much considering we were 90% sure everyone in the house was going to come down with a fever and grouchiness. It was a nice, relaxing weekend and it was exactly what we needed before the madness of Halloween.
Question: If someone allowed you to go nuts in a the candy section of the general store, what would you grab? They had all the old school stuff, but they also had white chocolate Reese’s. DILEMMA, y’all.
