Long weekends are always a great time to do some extra fun activities. This past weekend was no different.
Melissa used to work one or two Saturdays a month, so I took the opportunity to start a tradition with the kids, which I lovingly called "Dadurday." Typically, this tradition involved getting donuts and just getting out of the house so I would not go crazy. Melissa does not work Saturdays anymore, but I can't give up the tradition so we went out to Strange Donuts on Sunday this past weekend to have some fun together and give Mommy some time off. We had a great time, despite the usual mess that comes with donuts (something I am getting better at putting up with for the kids' sake).
In an extra bit of fun we had a special field trip for Harrison's preschool to BounceU, a local inflatable indoor fun park. Eva took a while to warm up to playing because of all the noise, but once she did she had a great time. Harrison jumped in right away!
The beginning of the year in the Tiearney household is birthday season. Starting right away in the month of January, half of our household has a birthday. So far, Harrison and I have had some great celebrations.
-Harrison got a great 5 year old birthday party with Star Wars decor and a lot of fun active new toys to play with. His joy and wonder at all new experiences fills my heart with joy and gratitude.
-I got a trip to the symphony to see Star Wars: A New Hope live in concert and delicious BBQ at the local restaurant Salt+Smoke. Basically, my favorite movie, with my favorite person, and eating my favorite food.
I love my family and this is the place to find all of the adventures we experience.
