What a weekend! Friday was a bit rough for me - Etta had a well visit at her doctor--a good 40 minutes from our house--at 8:40. I told Jon on Thursday night about the 8:40 visit. I stayed home from work to take her (so I can nurse her if the appointment inevitably runs late). I pulled out of our driveway at 7:45 and looked at the reminder on my phone for her 8:00 appointment. As it happens, I had confused her well visit with Elden's ENT visit (which was today) so I totally missed the appointment. In a stressful flurry of phone calls I was able to get her in at 10:30. That meant I had to rush to work (35 minutes each way) to get my laptop and some folders for a few meetings I had in order to work from home. On my way into work a truck kicked up a rock and dinged my windshield. I was none too pleased with Friday. But! Etta is healthy, insurance is paying for my windshield repair and Jon and I ended the night with a backyard fire and wine date.
it was a day, that's for sure.

On Saturday we had Edith's dance class and ran errands in the morning. 
warm temps means i can nurse in the car!
After the kids had nap/quiet time, we headed to Jon's parents to celebrate his mom's birthday. They catered P.F. Changs and it was SO delicious. This isn't my best work, but I made her this sign (and added more photos of the kids) as a gift:

On Sunday, Jon had to lead worship at church but Elden's nose was a faucet so I kept the kids home. Jon's parents came by to drop off some old aquarium lights for our seedlings (speaking of - have you entered my Baker Creek heirloom seed giveaway!?) so we got that set up. Did you know you can use aquarium lights to grow plants!? I had no idea and by reusing spares that Jon's dad had lying around we are saving a ton of money on the initial lamp investment. We got our little greenhouse on special buy from Aldi this week for $20 and for the price I am happy with the quality.

After the kids woke up from naps my parents stopped by for a visit. Our kids love their grandparents (on both sides)! It was a great weekend spent with lots of family.
