Good days start with french toast

Saturday, May 31, 2014
It has been an awesome Saturday. Perry is continuing his sleeping in trend so I had to wake him up at 8:10 so we could get to family breakfast on time. Andrew says he is already turning into a teenager because he sleeps in until 9 and ate a slice and a half of pizza for dinner the other night.

We met up with Daddy, Aunt T, and Aunt Kay for breakfast at Cracker Barrel. It was great to get caught up on life with them. And Cracker Barrel makes the best breakfast. Perry and I shared some french toast, eggs, and sausage.

This afternoon we went over to Travis and Gina's house so I could help Travis sand and stain our new pantry shelves while Perry napped soundly in his pack and play inside. We are in the process of a total overhaul of our pantry. Goodbye wire shelving and hello wood shelves and cabinets. I am really glad that it worked out that I could go help with some of the labor this afternoon and learn how to stain wood. It is actually really quite fun. Operation pantry renovation is officially underway. I can't wait to see the finished product. And we are so so thankful for good friends who are super handy and talented at stuff like this and are willing to spend their weekends helping us with this project.

Our day finished off with Kate's spring dance recital. Andrew got off at 6 and was able to meet us there to watch her dance. Kate did great and looked super cute in her costume. Fortunately her class danced third so we didn't have to keep a wiggly toddler sitting in an auditorium for too long, but Perry really loved the music and watching the dancers. And clapped happily along.

The other excitement around our house today was the arrival of Perry's new bedding for his big boy room. It has been quite the saga getting the bedding that I had my heart set on. Unsolicited advice: be careful about falling in love with something you see on Pinterest and know that not all companies are allowed to ship to the US. I was able to get creative and with some help of a friend we met on a cruise last year who lives in the UK, the bedding is arrived here today safe and sound and it is perfect (thank you Clare). And I feel like superwoman. The things moms do for their kids. : )
