Last Wednesday morning I joined a group of moms from our neighborhood for a walk on a nearby trail. My friend Megan introduced me to Meetup.com and I have joined 3 groups that are geared towards moms with young children. There are various activities and meet-ups posted each day and you just RSVP if you will come or not. The moms on the walk were really nice and all had babies at least a year younger than Lane, but it was still fun and nice to meet people. We made the Wednesday morning walk a reoccurring meet-up, so Lane and I go again tomorrow.
On Wednesday nights Lane has Little Gym. We had been going to the one in Arlington since Lane was little tiny, so I knew I wanted to keep him enrolled after we moved. The location is great, only minutes from our house, and the class is full of other rambunctious 2 year olds!
We tried out story time at the local library on Friday and it was fantastic! They offer 2 different times each Tuesday and Friday for toddlers his age, which is nice for us to be able to choose a time that is best for us. The story reader was really nice and fun and had puppets, songs, and books. Lane enjoyed it and we will definitely go back!
Friday night Kyle, Lane, and I went downtown for dinner. We tried to go to a place Kyle had eaten with work, but the wait was over an hour. We walked next door to Lambert's BBQ and ate on the patio. It felt so nice and was almost chilly! After dinner we headed home and my mom and Kori arrived soon after for a short weekend stay. Lane was pretty excited to see them and show them his room and toys. They got here close to Lane's bedtime so we didn't do much that night.
Lane had his second of ten soccer practices on Saturday, and he was NOT as enthusiastic about it as he was the first time. He was grumpy, refused to do some of the skills, and kept saying he wanted to go home. Mums and Kori were there to watch, so we were disappointed that he wasn't into it! For some reason he acts up any time guests come to watch him. He did the same thing at Little Gym back in Arlington when family would come watch. Such a stinker! Hopefully he will be ready and willing by this Saturday's lesson!
We spent the rest of the weekend hanging out with Kori and my mom. After soccer we all went to a luncheon at Lane's preschool. They were celebrating their 35th anniversary and had a food truck lunch and activities for the kids. Lane enjoyed playing on the playground after lunch and we headed home for his nap. The ladies did a little bit of shopping while Lane slept and we went to dinner Saturday night at a Mexican restaurant down the street. It was POURING rain all day Sunday, but we managed to make it out for brunch at Kerbey Lane before mom and Kori headed home to Mansfield. I am so happy they were able to come. I miss them like crazy, and know Lane does too!
