Spring Fever + Laid-off Adventures

Hey, everyone! It's been a little while since I last checked in. I believe this tends to happen to me every Spring when the weather begins to turn. We have been spending a lot of time outside lately and so I haven't had as much time to sit down and write. However, I have very much missed our little check-in's here, so let me catch you up on some of our recent adventures!

My husband has been laid off from work (seasonally) for the past couple weeks and so we've been soaking up all the extra family time while also trying to balance checking off some things on our to-do list.

One of the very first days my husband was home from his seasonal lay-off he woke up early with the girls, let me sleep in and brought home my favorited iced vanilla coffee in bed. That was a great way to start the day!

We had a fun time celebrating St. Patrick's Day at home with the girls! We ordered the best take-away Reubens and now that I'm writing about it, I'm craving them all over again.

We have taken so many family walks over these past few weeks! Watching my big kid ride her scooter while I push my baby in the stroller has got to be in my top 10 most favorite sights to see. This season is so incredibly sweet! We all love spending time outside together! Delaney especially loves the outdoors, as it's a whole new world for her to explore and take in.

My husband and I had a "date night" (still with the girls) where we went out, ordered pizza and drank a beer. We must have timed everything really well because even with the kids there, our little date was so relaxing and exactly what we needed. Everyone was so happy!

I don't believe we've had a true date night out, just the two of us, since November (4 months)! Having a baby during a pandemic has made date nights out even more challenging but, I know we'll get them back eventually. Until then, we are really enjoying this sweet season we're in!

On Monday this week, we took our first zoo trip as a family of 4! It was so much fun and very sentimental to finally be back at the zoo, as a complete family of 4. 

I remember dreaming of how these days might look last summer while I was pregnant with Delaney. The trip was even better than I imagined it would be. I did take some video during our zoo trip and I hope to make a vlog out of that footage someday soon.

Today is Friday. It is a little chilly, rainy and very windy. I am about to get started on remote schooling with Piper soon, and then I have plans to go grocery shopping {alone} later this afternoon. I'll probably end my Friday folding piles of laundry with my husband while catching up on some shows once the kids are asleep.

Hope you all have a great weekend and I hope to share even more updates next week!
