Noah and I like to do fun things together on the weekends. We do fun things everyday but those are more around our home. This past weekend we went to a Pioneer place. They were having a BBQ competition. Now we weren’t really in to the whole food aspect of it. We did however have a lot of fun. We went on a hayride. It was Noah’s first one. We always talked about going to the pumpkin patch but that never happened. So, Noah was unsure about a hay ride. He told me he didn’t want to do it. He wouldn’t like it, but tough cookies kiddo. We were going. Well, the moment he saw the tractor pulling the wagon, he was so excited. He loved every moment, minus the screaming kids, without supervision. We also fed some chickens. We grounded the corn ourselves, and I realized that I needed to work out. It was so tough trying to turn the wheel, but I figured it out. No starving chickens on my watch. After the hayride and feeding the chickens, who had laid an egg, we went to do other things. We made candles. I used to love to make candles so it was extra exciting for me. I admit I was nervous about Noah and hot wax. He did a great job though. His candle is awesome. I had so much fun. We also made homemade butter. It is so easy to do. It was the best butter I had ever tried. I had used a butter churn at Conner Prairie before but this was so much more fun. I will be posting articles how to make both very soon.
We also enjoyed hot dogs and sno-cones. We came home and later went to the beach. It was a beautiful day and the water was fun. There were some waves but not the wipe out variety. I was so nervous because my boy had no fear. I was so worried that he would wipe out, like I used to do. No one wiped out. We also made a tidal pool. It started out as my foot spa, and then Noah took over. I told him we should dig to China. He told me that is not possible. So I changed it to digging for buried treasure. I didn’t find anything though. I also had a chance to be in the water all by myself. Sometimes you need that break in something absolutely beautiful to recharge. I spent a lot of time thinking about things and relaxing. We had a great day. It was almost perfect.
What do you have planned for this weekend?
