Almost Free Weekend Fun With Daddy

This weekend Jessica was out of town throwing her cousin a baby shower. This meant that Aiden and I had a guys weekend at home.

We started the weekend by going to Aiden’s soccer game. He is getting better with every game. We then grabbed some lunch and headed over to the RC/Hobby shop. This store has a giant slot car racetrack that will make any little boy’s eyes light up. We looked around the store at all the wonderfully expensive RC gadgets but I eventually ended up at the “cheapo toy rack”. I found these foam/plastic planes that you use a stick & rubberband to shoot them with. They were only $1.99 each. We bought 2. It’s like buying almost free weekend fun!

When we got home we took them out front and started having contests to see who could shoot them further. Aiden quickly got the hang of it and played with his for over an hour. The next day we went on a bike ride through Vasona and Aiden managed to ride 12 miles with me and didn’t complain once. Very proud of the lad.

He was happy when Mom came home, but we had a fun guys weekend together.

Pomeranian Puppy named Lily!

We have a new addition to the family, a Pomeranian puppy! I picked her up from her breeder today after visiting her several times after she was born. She’s the most adorable Pomeranian Puppy and her name is Lily. Right now she only weighs 1lb 2oz, but she will grow to be around 5 or 6 lbs. She’s so fluffy and furry and basically can’t do anything that isn’t cute.

On the way home I had to stop by the store to pick up some extra supplies. I wasn’t sure if I was going to bring her home today or not. I just kept her in her carrier to keep her away from people and other dogs. I feel like you can’t ever be too careful! I have to arrange her new vet visits and get her up to date on everything.

I snapped some pics real quick of her but she moves pretty fast for being only 6 weeks old. She’s bringing you the rain of Pomeranian pain! She’s super adorable and teeny-tiny! Finally, I have another girl in our house (the cat doesn’t count, ha!).

Aiden loves her and is afraid that she’s too fragile. I think his confidence will grow as she gets older and he gets more used to her. Yoda the pug doesn’t quite know what to think of her yet, but I’m sure he will come around. The cat doesn’t care about anything but herself, so I’m sure she will be fine too.

Aiden’s First Soccer Game

Well… of his second season. Aiden’s first soccer game of the season was a couple of weeks ago and I feel like he’s more confident this time around than he was last time. I love to see him make progress and learn things. Kids are like a sponge, they absorb everything around them and I enjoy showing him new things.

We both agreed that he would play this season and if at some point he didn’t like it we’d discuss it again. I feel like it’s important that kids don’t feel like they are just shuffled from one even or activity to the next without any real choice in the matter. My mom always gave us a choice growing up, and though I chose to partake in a lot of activities as a child, I acknowledge that my child may not.

Either way, I’m so glad that Aiden has decided to try another season, and he’s already looking more active so I’m very excited to see where this goes. He also enjoys any snacks that turn his tongue colors, ha!
