Friday night, my Mom, my Sister & I went out to celebrate my sister's Birthday. We drove downtown, got Dinner at this amazing restaurent on the pier. And then after that, we went to the Josh Groban concert (as I mentioned in Friday's post. And the best thing is that this concert wasn't cancelled, yay!)
And then Saturday, my Husband and I made spur of the moment plans to go see Gravity with some friends. Only problem? We needed a babysitter. I'm not lying when I say that there has been only one time, ever, that anyone besides family has watched the kids. We have pretty much never "hired" a babysitter before. I guess I've been putting it off because it always made my mommy nerves all kinds of shaky. There are three reasons I have hesitated hiring a babysitter. 1) I'm scared of how the kids will react the first time we leave them with a complete (but trusted) stranger. 2) I always feel like no one can take care of them better than me. And I always want them to have the best care. 3) I don't want to spend the money. Pretty understandable, right?
But seriously, it was time. So... I lined up a super responsible teenager that came highly recommended to come watch the boys while we went out. She came in and immediately started reading a book to Easton. We said goodbye and the kids didn't even blink (or notice) that we were leaving. I suppose all of that worry was for nothing because the babysitter said they were fantastic and went down for bed with no issues at all. So there's that. lol.
Anyway, here are some scenes from the weekend:
The view from the pier where we ate dinner. Y'all, I'm telling you, if you haven't been to Seattle, GET HERE NOW. It's incredible. But come in the Summer when it's not raining.
Josh Gorban concert. This guy is seriously hilarious and has incredible talent. He's legit.
Me and my Sister!! (Crappy iPhone photo. I hate using flash)
We saw Gravity in IMAX 3D. I usually don't like 3D that much, but considering this movie's visual effects, and the fact that it took place in space -- it totally added to the experience. If you enjoy being completely tense and stressed out for an hour and a half, go see this movie. It was stressful, crazy & awesome all at the same time.
That's my weekend in a nutshell. Also from the weekend, not seen in this post was a failed attempt at Easton's 18 month photos, and an amazing rustic family shoot. Kinda wish my family would get photos done at this location because it was awesome!
What did you guys do this weekend?
