I mean, Saturday was a beautiful 75 degree, sun shining kind've day.
Sunday decided to be drastically different.
We headed out to church that morning in blaaaaaah weather.
It was cloudy, 30 something degrees, and pouring (freezing) rain.
Definitely didn't help my blah attitude.
That evening, while we sat in the playroom watching James play, I turned to Michael and said,
"I'm bored. Let's do something."
I could tell James was bored, too, as he had spent (almost) the entire day cooped up inside (oh, it's going to be a loooong winter if we get lots of snow).
Michael and I spent approximately 30 minutes going back and forth about what we could do, and ended with no decision.
Finally, he chimed in with,
"I'm going to write down some ideas on paper, throw it in a bowl, and you choose one out. Whatever it says, we're doing it."
I thought that sounded quite entertaining, so I happily obliged.
James and I kept busy while dad wrote down his grand ideas.
We played ball...
I attempted to coax James into cleaning up his play room, but was unsuccessful with that...
Time to grab from the
I chose the one that said
"head to an all you can eat Chinese buffet."
But then we decided that might not be the best decision, because it would be hard to find something for James to eat.
So I took out another one...
and another one...
and another one.
Until I had pulled out every single one.
We finally decided to drive to a nearby town and pick out a restaurant there...
until James lost it.
We drove for approximately 1 minute before deciding to head to the local grocery store where we would let James walk around, pick up some cheese for Fried Egg Sandwiches, and grab a Red Box.
And you know what?
It turned out to be quite the adventure.
Sure, it didn't go as planned, but I loved that my husband was up for something new and different and got creative with it (the drawing from a pumpkin).
James enjoyed his walk around the grocery store.
Probably much more than sitting in a car for an extended period of time.
And we were home in time to make a quick dinner,
get the teething grump to bed (I LOVE YOU, JAMES!),
and soak in the remaining hours of our Sunday evening.
