Favorite: Dinner (take-out from Chuy's) and watching the A&M game with our pals, the Cruikshanks
Least favorite: yard work… lots of lots of yard work; We received a code violation notice from the city of Sugar Land last week informing us that our tree branches were not trimmed high enough off the street. And while it was tempting to mail them a bag full of dog poop in return, we want to start off on the right foot in our new city of residence, so Brian went ahead and trimmed them (for the second time).
Favorite: Easy- eating. This always tops Colby's list of preferred activities. Most notable meal for him would probably be breakfast on Saturday, wherein he consumed a banana, pancakes, and scrambled eggs.
Least favorite: Being forced to attempt afternoon naps on both Saturday and Sunday. Thanks to this stubborn guy and his passionate hatred of The Second Nap of the Day, we're officially going to attempt the two-to-one nap transition next weekend.
Favorite: Running errands on Saturday, and her reasons are twofold:
(1) she and Colby were sporting matching Aggie attire, and therefore received lots of extra attention while we were out and about (she likes attention… not sure where she got that?!;)
(2) we took them into Petco for the first time and she went crazy over all of the "DAH! DAH! OOOO! DAH!" (dogs).
Least favorite: Being expected to behave like a normal human being when the Cruikshanks came over. She was in rare form and would not stop whining, hitting, and generally making her mommy insane/embarrassed.
Favorite: Well besides hanging out with the Cruikshanks (Brian stole that one), I'd have to say running on Saturday morning. I have a weekend tradition of waking up before everyone else and going for a (brief) run and I really enjoy it. I don't enjoy the heat, humidity, and swarm of mosquitoes, but those will soon be a thing of the past… temporarily.
Least favorite: Allison has been dealing with some stress associated with the move and it seemed to peak this weekend. It was driving me crazy that there was nothing I could do to help or fix it, and as is often the case, I found myself absorbing the stress and being on edge myself. Hopefully everything will be smooth sailing from here on out!
And two pictures I just felt like including…
We busted out the crayons for the first time, and I can't say I was too shocked that Colby was the first one that attempted to eat them.
