That’s how Adrian described this last weekend.
It was the end of the day on Sunday, we were having dinner and he said: Mami, this was the best weekend ever! We agreed but we still asked: Oh yeah? Why?
It’s so so nice when the kids express their feelings with words without us poking and asking so much, so hearing great things like this is music to our ears.
He went on and explained why… I got to play with Matias on Friday night, then I went to his birthday party on the beach, then I went on a boat then I played with Nathan and then I went in the pool!
It was a busy weekend, we had a birthday party and a fun outing, maybe just 2 things but for Adrian it was the best because first he had a friend over to play on Friday night, then on Saturday that same friend had his birthday party and it was on the beach.
We’ve never been to a kid’s birthday party at the beach and let me tell you, it was awesome! It was simple really, sand toys, balls, long balloons that flew and had to be followed, good food and a small fire to make S’mores at night, adults and kids had a great time. We stayed until the end! Too bad both of our kids have birthdays in the winter and it would be too cold to celebrate it at the beach because I would love to.
On Sunday we had the opportunity to take a cruise all around the San Diego Bay with the Flagship Cruises. It was such a nice day, perfect for the outing. First time ever that kids were on a boat, Adrian liked it and even though Maya was not too excited about I think the experience was great for both. I will tell you later with all the details of this specific outing! *Update: here is the post with all the cruise details!
Right after the cruise we dropped off Adrian at another friend’s house to play for a while, then when he came back home, we did some chores, relaxed and Derek took the kids to the pool and jacuzzi for a little bit.
We have had weekends like this before, were the activities are fun for all of us but never has Adrian said it was the best weekend ever. I think that even if there are lots of fun activities in our day we might not be enjoying them 100% sometimes, and it really depends on us, how much fun are we willing to have. That’s what I saw in Adrian this weekend, and that made me think and learn.
I learned that we can always have the best weekend, the best day or the best night if we leave the door open for the moment! What has been the best time you’ve had lately?
¡El mejor fín de semana del mundo!
Así fue como Adrian describió este fin de semana pasado.
El domingo, al final del día, estábamos cenando y me dijo suspirando: Mami, este fue ¡el mejor fin de semana de mi vida! Nosotros estuvimos de acuerdo, pero de todas maneras le preguntamos: Ah, sí? ¿Y por qué?
Es tan tan chévere cuando los niños solitos nos expresan sus sentimientos con palabras sin andar uno preguntando mucho, así que escuchar este tipo de cosas es música para mis oídos.
