Weekend Recap

We had a great {and busy} weekend that was pretty much nonstop.  Since we were out sick the past two weekends we basically attempted to cram a few weeks of fun into one weekend.  Mission accomplished. 

FRIDAY

After work Jack and I met Jason at Chuy's for some yummy Mexican food.  So good!  My son loves him some chips...just like his momma!



SATURDAY

We were up bright and early to get to the Houston Zoo.  I was so excited for Jack's first zoo trip.  We were invited to attend for my step-mom's company picnic.  I knew it was going to be extremely crowded since it was a Saturday, gorgeous weather and during Zoo Boo.  We took the advice of friends and arrived right when the park opened - great idea since the parking lot was almost full when we arrived. 

I was determined to take some pumpkin pictures and then we walked around and enjoyed the park for a few hours before lunch.

Jack was able to pet some goats at the petting zoo and then during lunch we had an up close and personal show with a python, baby alligator, lizard and chinchilla.  Jack was brave and touched the python and lizard!


After the zoo we went home for a couple of hours for a nap for Jack and a quick costume change.  We headed to a kiddo Halloween party at Erin & Chase's.  They did such an amazing job with the decor, food and crafts.  I should have taken more pictures, but I was exhausted by party time and just ready to kick back.  Jack looked adorable in his fisherman Halloween costume, but was way too excited to pose for pictures.




 
After a zoo day and Halloween party, we were spent.  We did a quick drive-thru at Chick-fil-a for dinner and got Jack bathed and to bed.  Around 8pm I was so exhausted and excited to get in bed, catchup on blogs and watch TV.  Stupid girl.
 
I walked to our master bathroom to change clothes and was immediately taken aback by the smell...we had a sewage leak and it was all over our bathroom and coming out of all drains...toilet, shower, bathtub.  Hello Amityville Horror.
 
Our plumber is amazing and answered the phone on a Saturday night, dropped what he was doing and came over.  Two hours later everything was fixed enough for the night and Jason and I went into major cleaning mode.  Bleach, bleach and lots of bleach.  The commercial for "life's bleachable moments" kept replaying in my head.  We finally hit the hay around 1am utterly exhausted...and frustrated with our house.

SUNDAY

We decided to sleep in and opt for the later church service at 11:15.  This actually worked out great.  Afterwards we grabbed some lunch and headed out to the local pumpkin patch to buy one to carve for Halloween...and take more pictures!



 
 
I hope you have a great week and a Happy Halloween!!!

    1. Oh I so would have done that Meagan if Jack wasn't already passed out by the time this happened. I didn't want to wake his little peaceful self up! I can't believe he slept through all of the craziness.

  5. Loved Jack's fisherman costume and you were so smart to bring the Radio Flyer Wagon to the zoo. I love that idea. Brody didn't want to be stuck in his stroller when we went to the zoo last time!

    1. Yes, the wagon was perfect! I got some advice from other moms and it was perfect. Jack does not like to be stroller bound lately. He wants to be up and looking at all the action! Plus the wagon could carry all of out stuff...bonus!

    2. Chels, your very first trip to the zoo was also in your red flyer wagon that Grammy and Vic gave you....you may have remembered that on some primitive level....

  9. It looks like you had a fun weekend! Jack must have had loads of fun! What's not fun at all is that sewage leak. Good thing you had a plumber who was able to come at any moment for such emergencies. Hopefully this didn't dampen the rest of your weekend, with Jack hauling all of those pumpkins. Take care!
