This weekend we had one of the biggest rain storms I've seen since I was a little girl. It was craaaaazy. Cars were going all over the roads, trees were falling down all over the place & it was pure chaos. I love a good rain storm but this one was pretty wild! During a mini break in the storm the boys & I headed to a friends house so that our kids could entertain each other, cause kids on rainy days are probably the hardest to deal with. Any one else have this feeling? It's like they know you can't do anything & that you're willing to cave at any of their requests just so they don't have a melt down... or maybe that's just my kid, either way, it's better when they have friends to entertain them & when the adults have a friend they can talk to, too! We went over there in the morning & stayed probably longer than we were welcome because of the crazy storm, I didn't want to brave driving in the rain.
By night the storm lightened up & after the boys were in bed Austin & I went out for a dessert date while my mama watched over the boys for us. It was so nice to have a little bit of time just the two of us, plus we went to 31 Flavors which I had been craving SO badly the last couple of weeks. They have the absolute best mint chocolate chip shake, no questions asked.
Saturday Austin took the boys in the morning for our usual Saturday donut run & let me sleep in which was juuuust what I needed. I've been feeling a bad head cold coming on so I was craving some extra sleep. Later in the morning I went to Barre while the boys played at the little daycare they have there, it makes me laugh because Cedar really loves my Barre daycare. Anytime we drive pass it he asks: "can I go to class again with you & miLo & I can play while you exercise?" It's the funniest & for some reason I'm always surprised that he remembers where the studio is..
While I was at my class my sister messaged saying she & her family were going to Olvera street & we figured why not? Neither Austin or I had ever been & we had nothing else going on, so we got ready quick & headed down to LA & met up with them. If you've never been let me tell ya, it's a street full of Mexican goodies: shirts, dresses, shoes, food, toys, bags, etc. & amazing smelling restaurants. There were bands playing, carts with churros & people dancing, it was pretty fun to see.
After Olvera street we decided to go to the Griffith Observatory, which I have been wanting to do for such a long time but just never have. The last time I went I think I was in elementary school, so it's been a while. Tip for anyone out there: DO NOT GO ON SATURDAY! It was insane! So crowded, it was wild. We drove up right at sunset & it was gorgeous, but we missed the sunset because of how crowded it was on the road & the parking was crrraaaaaazy but, we got a spot & it was all good. The observatory itself is such a cool building & then the views are breathtaking. The night view is really cool because you can see all of LA lit up & twinkling, I really loved it & am definitely planning to go back in the morning soon.
From then on the weekend was pretty mellow, my mom was babysitting my nephew who is Cedar's age, so they played with each other all weekend, Austin & I caught up on Girls, watched a documentary & watched Big Little Lies which is SO good if you were wondering. If you have HBO you really should watch it, I'm antsy waiting a whole week for the next episode.
What did you do this weekend?
