No weekend is really truly quiet for us. “Quiet” has taken on a new meaning for me now that I’m a parent of two energetic boys. Although I shouldn’t blame Johannes and Magnus I suppose. I myself don’t love quiet time, I tend to get anxious and irritable, and so I look for ways to keep busy with cooking or baking or re-arranging rooms around our home.
So this weekend was quiet for us. Hockey Saturday morning meant Magnus and I got to spend a few hours alone, while Johannes and Michael were at the arena. I dusted off my DSLR and snapped a few photos of Magnus playing in the crib after his nap. It’s a rare occasion when Magnus wakes up from a nap in anything but a crabby mood, so it had to be documented.

We all reconvened for lunch after which the boys napped and I ran out to finalize plans for our new custom dining table that Jay from Junction Wood and Metal is making for us. We realized over the holidays that we desperately need a family table in the dining room. It has to be a specific size in order to fit our little space so Jay is making us a walnut table with beautiful pin needle legs.
A fun birthday celebrating baby Avery capped off our Saturday in the best way possible and Sunday we all headed out to Mississauga and Milton for family time with my mom and dad, and Johannes’ first snowboard lesson of the season. It’s been almost a year since he last hit the slopes and this time he gets to do it with his best friend which is equal parts cute and hilarious to watch. Side note, our kids decided they needed matching Burton x Marvel jackets in order to actually snowboard (insert small eye roll) and we as suckers obliged only to end up calling over 20 stores across Canada respectively before we found the one piece and jacket in remote stores. The things we do for these kids!
What did you guys get up to?! And did anyone try making my granola recipe yet?
