Weekend Happenings

We had one of those super busy/amazing weekends. The ones that make you really really dread Monday morning. 

Saturday morning we went to one of our favorite brunch places Snooze to meet Drews brother and his fiancé. Then we drove around for a little while looking at possible neighborhoods to move into eventually. I think we added another one to our list! Which is good because our number one preferred neighborhood is almost impossible to get into!

Saturday evening we went to Boulder for a friends Swedish Midsummer celebration. Good food, amazing back yard with views of the foothills, Aquavit (and the singing that goes along with that!) and dancing around the flower pole made for such a fun evening. I could Almost pretend we were back in Sweden celebrating (as we were last year!) minus the fact that it go dark at 9 PM instead of the sun staying up all  night. 

Sunday morning we woke Drew up with coffee and presents. The man is So hard to buy for! The kids and I did a little photo shoot for him for pictures for his office and I think he loved them, so thats a big win. Next we got donuts, played in the yard with the kiddos and then went to see Inside Out since it was 97 degrees out. SUCH a cute movie. And the 5 minute mini movie before hand? I about cried. I didn't think I'd ever feel so bad for a volcano (if you see the movie in the theater you will know what I'm talking about.)

In the evening Drew's brother and fiancé came over to babysit for us (THANK YOU WILL AND BRITT!) so Drew and I (and Soren) could go see Ingrid Michaelson and Ben Folds at Red Rocks. If you are ever in Denver/Colorado during concert season you HAVE to go see a show at Red Rocks. I don't care who it is. There's really nothing like seeing a show there. And this was no exception, amazing shows by both of them. Doesn't hurt that they were both playing with the Colorado Symphony. Just amazing. My only complaint- Ingrid and Ben only sang one song together. They sang The Luckiest and not going to lie, I was basically in tears it was so beautiful. 

Soren is one lucky little guy to have that be his first show! We got some looks and comments and I definitely got a side eye from the girls sitting next to me when we sat down with Soren. After the show she told me she couldn't believe how good and quiet S was the whole time. The same can Not be said for her drunk and loud friend. He seriously did so good though. As I knew he would. As long as he's being held and fed- he's the most perfect and content baby. He slept some of it, but mostly he just sat there watching, taking it all in. We were far enough back that it wasn't too loud. Pretty sure the movie we went to in the morning was louder than the concert. And luckily he can sleep through some loud noises, I mean he does have two very loud siblings..

And that was our weekend! Hope yours was as good!
