Another weekend in the books, and another weekend of no sleep. Our baby girls are going through a bit of a growth spurt coupled with teething which means little to no sleep in the Butler household. Brutal. It started Saturday night and we are still going strong. The girls usually sleep until 3:30 am and then Avery will wake up up to three times after that until 5:30 am. That is doable. This waking up from 11:30 pm every hour or so is killing us. Sleep babies, sleep.

But other than that, we had a pretty good weekend. Friday I got a ton of errands done. I even managed to donate old clothes that have been sitting in a bag for months. Friday night we took the girls to Granite Street Eatery for a dinner outside. The girls were oh'd and awe'd over and we got to soak in a nice summer fall evening in.

Saturday was game day. We went to brunch, I hit the grocery story and we got ready to go to the game. Sans girls! We were able to tailgate and enjoy adult conversation. So amazing having a babysitter. Plus it was really hot. And we got cute updates of the girls the entire time. See.
Miss B (my not so little flower girl) and her grandma stopped over to see the girls and our babysitter

The Pack won (such a change from last week), it was a gorgeous day and we got to catch up with some great friends.

Sunday we wanted a change of pace, so we headed to Lake Tahoe for the day. Tahoe City specifically. It was warm, but not warm enough to go to the beach with the girls. So we just walked the bike path in Tahoe City, took the girls to the park for their very first swing experience, had a late lunch while watching football at the local brewery and headed back home in time for the Niners game. 

My family was even dressed for the occassion.

Avery was a super happy baby here. Loving the swing!
Look how gorgeous Tahoe was on Sunday

Sunday evening was spent watching the Niners lose, making a late dinner (after the girls went to bed) and going to bed early.

How was your weekend? Please send some positive sleep juju our way since our little ladies seem to be protesting sleeping. Thanks!


  1. Wow looks like a gorgeous weekend! Glad you guys had fun. Hope the sleep gets better!

    1. Yes me too! I feel like I am on a coffee IV to get through the day.

  2. The twins are getting so big! I can't believe it!
