Since going back to work in July, the arrangement that my husband and I have with our daughter is that he will stay with her during the week, and I’ll have her on the weekends while he’s working. For the most part, our weekends have consisted of grocery shopping (if you follow me on Instagram, I post the weekly haul in Insta-stories, along with our menu for the week), going for long walks and runs (David and I are training for the Ramblefest Half Marathon in October!), or visiting with the grandparents.
This past weekend was a fun one; it consisted of a musical, a long run, and time with both my parents and David’s parents (No groceries this week since we already have so much in the fridge 🙂).
On Saturday, my mom and I went to the North Shore Music Theater to see Young Frankenstein: The Musical. I absolutely love the classic Mel Brooks/Gene Wilder movie, so I was intrigued to see how they would make it into a musical.
The verdict? It was pretty hilarious. The gentlemen who played Frederick and Igor were quite spot on, and I enjoyed Inga and Elizabeth. Of course, no one can compete with Gene Wilder, Marty Feldman, and Madeline Kahn, but they all did an awesome job. Ah, who am I kidding, the woman who played Frau Blucher (*horse neighs*) was hilarious too! Not as much as Cloris Leachman, but overall, I very much enjoyed it.
Before the show, my mom and I enjoyed some chicken quesadilla’s and a beverage in their Garden Cafe.
During the afternoon, since David was at work, his parents watched her and they had a blast! And I love the fact that they take pictures of their afternoon; I love seeing her little smiling face.
I think my daughter looks like Curly from the Three Stooges. Ha!
After the show, I had dinner at their house, and then it was back home for her bedtime.
Sunday was my long run day! The plan had 6 miles, and we ended up doing 6.5 with run/walk intervals. I have to say, it’s a lot of fun running with the stroller. I feel like it actually pulls me along on the road. And for the most part, Eleanor enjoys the runs too.
In the afternoon, we met up with my parents to have lunch and check out their new house under construction. That night, when we got back home, I watched Young Frankenstein (of course!) and gave Eleanor a bath.
Overall, a very enjoyable and activity-packed weekend. 🙂
How was your weekend? Doing anything fun as a wind-down to summer?
