Our weekend & My Favorite Things Prize Packs!

I have never been so excited to welcome in a Monday!
Of course I am recapping our weekend, but I am also opening the giveaway up to you all!
If you are new to X-tremely V,
thanks for stopping by!
You can read a bit more about me here to catch up :)

On to our weekend!

Linking up with
Dateless in Dallas

Our dinner plans for Friday evening got cancelled,
so we were able to just cook up some wings and hang out at home :)

Saturday it was too nice out to sit at home!
After the super cold temps we have been seeing this winter,
we had a high of 45 degrees and sunshine!
It felt like Spring!

We decided to take a drive, but had no idea where we wanted to go. So we hopped on 30 and headed east!
We decided to head to Akron and visit Quaker Square.
Unfortunately, there aren't many shops or restaurants there but they do have a lot of things trains!
X loved seeing the old train car restaurant and the train cars located outside :) An actual train went by on the tracks as we were checking it out and it was wonderful for him!


 






Afterwards we decided to swing in the Summit Mall so we could grab some Starbucks and X could stretch his legs a bit more before the hour+ drive home. We have never really taken X to the mall or anywhere that there are crowds of people. He was wonderful! He held our hands and loved walking all around! The best part is that the mall has a little train that drives around inside :)
Once X saw it we were literally running to catch up to it!
He couldn't wait to ride it!
Seriously, the highlight of the day!









Sunday we ran a few errands and stopped at Sam's Club for a couple of things. X had so much fun riding in the cart (under our supervision)!

    1. Our mall is so tiny here (similar to Midway in Elyria) that they don't ever have anything fun :( It was a great change of pace!
      The weather was simply amazing this weekend! It does stink that it won't last, but Spring WILL get here :)

  4. It's been nice to discover your blog. I miss Quaker Square. We used to go there when I was a kid, and if I remember there were a lot more shops and things like that. If you ever want to meet at the mall and take the kids for a walk let me know. I love to take the little one there and she loves riding around in her stroller looking up at the lights. It's been so helpful to get out and walk there this Winter!

    1. It is nice to discover you blog and meet you as well! I went to Quaker Square as a kid as well, but it definitely has changed since then :( I actually did a modeling shoot there many years ago! lol!
      That was the first time I had been to Summit Mall and it was pretty nice. I will keep you posted next time I head back that way :)
