We had no major plans this weekend. Which means we all just get to hang out together, and do normal family things. Like go grocery shopping and to Home Depot. (Yes. Totally normal. For 60 year olds. But we dig it.)
It is also extra special because we are a one car family for a while. Fancy the 4Runner is still being repaired, which means I am still being woken at the unhuman hour of 6:15am and expected to be out of the door by 7:00am. (Let's all be honest. This is not happening. And because this is not happening, Tanner and I are a bit at odds every morning.)
So Friday after school, we all go to the barber shop for the boys to get a haircut. Fisher has gone to Mr. Ben since his haircutting life began. And he loves him. This is also the same barber shop Tanner has gone to as long as I have known him. Which dates back to the '90's so basically forever.
Unfortunately, Tanner's haircuts do not excite me as much as Fisher's... So no picture to document his big day.
Then we took the babe for a pizza dinner. We have also recently discovered (thanks to conversations with him about an assortment of things that in no way pertain to what we were actually talking about) that Fisher likes "broccoli trees". Along with his pizza, we ordered him a side of broccoli. And with not even trying to hide our shock, we watched him eat nearly the entire side of it. Kid loves it. Mind blown.
To show our gratitude for him eating something outside of his normal fruit, chicken, pizza, and snacks - we took him for ice cream. This is one of those ice cream places where you serve your own ice cream, and then pick and serve your own toppings. Fisherman was in heaven. He ended up with chocolate and vanilla (because why choose just one?) topped with gummy bears, marshmallows, m&m's and sprinkles.
He clearly has a signature move when eating.
Then we made a quick Trader Joe's stop for some necessities. Honestly. What is cuter than a little person pushing a cart?
I love grocery shopping early on Saturday mornings. The Publix I go to is normally so busy that it just makes me angry. But on Saturday mornings, its heavenly. I think people start singing when I walk in and navigate the aisles with ease. Unfortunately, we are in one car. Which means we didn't get there until about 11:00am and people have started arriving by then. Still wasn't as busy as normal, but definitely slowed me down a bit. (We did stop for breakfast at Cracker Barrel, which is a easy way to my heart.) And sheer grocery manufacturer's association genius, Publix also has the mini carts. This is sheer brilliance for keeping littles occupied.
(Please forgive the fact that this is on the beer aisle.)
And what family weekend is complete without a trip to Home Depot?
Fisher is diligently looking through the greens for the perfect orange to paint his bedroom.
