I don't know what it is with 3 year olds but I tell you what...they are moody! Austin was the sweetest thing last week and this week he has been anything but sweet. He has been moody, irritable, and disobedient. We have gone round and round with his behavior and it is about to do me in. A little prayer on my behalf would be much appreciated!
On Saturday we had breakfast at another bakery in town. If you haven't guessed already, my family likes bakeries. My husband loves bakeries so we have made it our mission to find all the good ones in town. We enjoyed this one but think we have been spoiled by the one we had a little over a month ago.
The oldest didn't want his picture taken...see what I mean...moody!
After the bakery we headed back to Walden Pond to redeem ourselves. We went prepared this time. I wore Miller in the Ergo carrier and David wore Austin in our new (new to us-I bought it at a Consignment store in Boston) Kelty Backpack Carrier.
I had very high expectations for our hike and unfortunately they weren't completely met. Austin kept wanting to go everywhere besides the path we were supposed to stay on.
Miller was a little uncomfortable in the Ergo so I had to turn him around.
Looking back though it was nice.
Saturday evening David and I went on a nice date to the Northend. It was so great to be alone with my husband and enjoy a quiet dinner together.
Sunday we attended church and heard an amazing testimony of Libby Little who along with her husband Tom served as missionaries in Afghanistan. A year ago August Tom along with 9 others were killed by gunmen in Badakhshan, a remote northeastern region of the country. Her testimony was incredible. You can read more about them in this CNN article.
Monday the boys and I met up with friends at a new park near the Charles River. It has been beautiful the last few days so we are taking full advantage of it.
Tuesday night David had a work event so we hired a babysitter, dressed up nice, and went out on the town. It was really nice and such a treat to go out 2 times in one week.
