So, this happy family had a great weekend! No really, I'm serious! We worked together, played together, worshiped together, and enjoyed each other. Any weekend those things happen is a great weekend!
My weekend actually started a little earlier when the hubby and I went on an impromptu date Thursday night. We left the boys with their aunt, and sneaked off to the dollar movies. I really enjoy going to the movies, and we used to do it fairly often, if there was anything decent out. But recently (since the arrival of children) we haven't done it as much lately. It's not cheap to go to the regular movies, and when you factor in the hassle of finding a sitter, it was just easier not to go. But now that the boys are getting older and more self-sufficient, we've gotten to go more often. The dollar movies are great, since I'm not all that concerned with seeing something bad enough to pay eight bucks for it. So, off we went to see the first half of Harry Potter 7. I've read all the books, and have seen all the movies a couple of times. They have a great plot, even though they are geared for younger audiences, and are just fun to read. They've done a great job with the movie versions too, although they have "grown up" with the characters, so the later ones are more intense than the early ones. It was a great way to start the weekend! Thanks, honey!
Friday the little boys and I just hung out at the house all day. Some Wii bowling and boxing (it's entertainment in itself to watch a 4 year old box!), and having fun. Then Daddy wanted to take the family out for supper, so we headed off to Cracker Barrel. The boys love going there! Besides the fact that they get to play with toys while we are waiting, they know they can have pancakes for supper! They also like to play "I Spy" with all the things hanging on the walls. Then it was off to Lowes to buy the supplies for the projects we had to tackle on Saturday.
Saturday started off slow, with some French toast for daddy and the boys. (Mommy is not a fan of French toast, so she had cereal with strawberries!) Then we sat around and built Legos for probably longer than we should have! But the boys had fun, and Daddy built them a neat lawn mower. Mommy put together some of the sets from the instructions. Then it was time to get busy. So, while the boys played outside and enjoyed the great weather (yay for spring!), Mommy and Daddy put in an electrical and water hook-up for when the grandparents come to stay. Hubby's parents have retired and gotten an RV, so they are visiting more often, and this will enable them to stay for longer time periods. We are excited to see them soon!
Sunday was a little tough, with time change and all, but we had a great Sunday learning and growing in the Lord! Our pastor preached a great message about all the things going on in the world, and how we shouldn't be discouraged because it means the Lord is getting ready to return! So thankful for our church family!
I hope you enjoyed reading about our fun weekend, and that you enjoyed your weekend too! Remember to look for the little things that make life great! :)
