We’ve done two fun things recently: I took the kids swimming and we went to a local chocolate shop as a family!
Sarris Candies is a famous candy shop in Washington, PA and their chocolate really is amazing. It’s definitely Jimmy’s weakness in life (mine is peanut butter, in case you’re wondering 😉).
We browsed around the store, picked out some chocolates, and even hit up the store’s ice cream parlor!
We last visited Sarris in February last year and also went went Sadie was a baby in 2019. Memories ❤️
My mom and I took Sadie and Mordecai to my local YMCA to swim one afternoon and it was such a great little outing for us all!
I’m thankful my mom tagged along because it would have been difficult to manage both kids in the pool for open swim.
I was able to bring both Sadie and Mordecai in the water and pass Mordecai to my mom when Sadie wanted to swim in the deep end(!).
Mordecai looks concerned in the photo above, but he actually did really well in the water! I kind of expected to dip his toes in and hear him cry, but he didn’t cry once!
We sat in the water, swam around, and Sadie and Mordecai “chased” each other. We were all smiling! I was really glad Sadie enjoyed being in the water. One of my goals for 2023 is for her to learn to swim.
I’m hoping to put Sader Tot in group swim lessons very soon, but it was nice to get her acclimated to the pool again since her swim lessons disaster last year, lol.
I don’t care if she never does a sport, I just want her to know how to swim for safety’s sake, you know? It’s so important!
After I passed Mordecai to my mom to swim with Sadie in the deep end, he fell asleep on her chest. All the splashing around must have tuckered him out.
That caps off some of the recent fun we’ve been up to! We’re headed to a birthday party today and yours truly got to make the cake. I’ll be sure to post pictures soon. Bye until next time!
