What a lovely, lovely weekend.
Friday I left work early and headed east to the compound. I stopped in Des Moines (tacos, duh), and got to Nick's around 7pm. It was just him and Cooper at home for the weekend, since Hannah and Chandler came to Omaha for her brother's baby shower.
Everyone knows Chandler and I are kindred spirits, but I was actually pretty excited to have some quality time with Coop this weekend. And Nick, of course. We ate dinner, and Cooper went to bed since it was pretty late (after downloading a ton of new games on my ipad, of course), and then Nick and I watched a scary movie that kept me up all night long.
Saturday we got up, and I took Cooper to soccer while Nick went to work. Being a soccer mom probably is not in my future, but I think I did a pretty decent job of making friends and yelling. After that, we met Nick for lunch at Subway, where Coop tried his first Subway sandwich and realized they are amazing. Then Nick went back to work for the graduation ceremony, and Cooper and I ran home, changed, and then went to the ceremony ourselves.
After that we went to HyVee to get him and Chandler fidget spinners, and then we finally went home and my single-mom life was done. I think I did a pretty good job of keeping him alive all day.
Cooper and Nick went fishing for awhile, and I got a little workout in. Then, we all went to this place, River Rock Cafe, for dinner. It was really busy, but totally worth the wait. The pork tenderloin was bomb, the cheeseballs were bomb, the steak fries were bomb.
After dinner, we walked a little bit around the river, and then went home to have a fire pit and roast marshmallows and make s'mores. Sitting around a firepit is my favorite thing in the world to do.
Sunday I got up early and headed home to have a birthday lunch with my sister, and then went to bingo with Gram, of course. I feel a little unorganized and like I need to get my life together, but it was a perfect weekend so I wouldn't change a thing.
