squeezing out the last bit of summer

I know I said last weekend was the last weekend of summer, but this past weekend REALLY was.  Last week I had teacher meetings, so it was back to work, but this week the kiddos come, so summer is officially over.  William and I were squeezing out the last bit of summer over the weekend and enjoying every moment of it.  We kicked off the weekend with a quick dinner to Chipotle with my friend Julie and her son Wolf.

tacos and tank tops – really, it’s burrito bowls, but tacos and tank tops has a much better ring to it, agree?

Wolf came over for a play date, but both the boys were getting restless at the house, so we knew it was now or never for dinner.  William was exhausted from going to camp all day while I was at school.  Straight from the fastest dinner ever, he went into the tub and in bed.

Saturday morning included a trip to the pool.  William had fun wading in the baby pool and splashing around.  In the afternoon, I went on an 18 mile bike ride.  It was overcast and gorgeous out, perfect riding weather.  Oh, and I signed up for another sprint triathlon.  This one is in a couple of weeks, so I’m hoping for a few more training sessions.  It will be even more difficult now that school is starting, but that’s alright.  It’ll be fun to race!

After a busy day, I plopped William in the bath tub and took one of my classic black and white tub photos.

Soon after, William went to sleep, a babysitter came over, and I had a girls night.


Caitlin and I met another one of our friends out.  It’s always so good to have girl time and talk!

On Sunday, I took William to an event at Ballpark Village.  It was his first time downtown and he made sure to take in the most important site.

Cardinal Nation, baby!

And a close up of his crazy curly hair:

The humidity makes it even wilder than usual!  I love it!  I’ve actually been using Ava Anderson Non Toxic anti-frizz serum on it which helps with the frizz.  But when he’s outside running around and sweating, there’s really no hope in taming those curls.

He especially loved the bubble bus!


He was so funny to watch chasing the bubbles everywhere!

Linking up with Katie & Erin.

After Ballpark Village, we went to check out a new juice place that we heard about.


St. Louis Juice Press shares space with Hot Yoga St. Louis.  I’ve never taken yoga there before, but I do love hot yoga, so I should try that next.  Their juices are cold pressed and immediately bottled (never heated or oxidized), so their juices provide the highest level of enzymes and nutrients you can find in a juice! Not to mention, they tasted fantastic.

  • Green: apple, celery, cucumber, spinach – this was a classic green juice
  • Watermelon: the sweetest and favorite of the bunch, William even approved
  • Carrot, Apple, Ginger: the ginger gave this one a good kick
  • Green: celery, spinach, apple, ginger – green juice + ginger to make it a bit spicy

We tried one other juice – Pineapple, Cucumber, Jalapeno.  It was refreshing and not nearly as spicy as I anticipated.

And just to round out the weekend with the same way we began, William and I picked up a bowl from Chipotle to share for Sunday night dinner.  (I really need to start some sort of meal prep when school begins!)  Have you ever seen a baby so happy to have a gigantic Chipotle bowl in front of him?

After I took the photo, William immediately began digging in with his hands.  Usually I put a few pieces at a time on his tray, but it was too cute to stop.  I literally pulled my stool in front of him and we ate the Chipotle together from his high chair haha.

How are you squeezing out the last little bit of summer?

  1. You are so lucky to have such a handsome dinner date! I love his curls! Matilda’s hair has a lot of natural curl too. I never thought about using anti frizz serum on it. I will have to give that a try.
    I hope your school year started off well with the kiddos!
