Weekend Recap

Whew -- What a busy weekend we had! 

Friday afternoon, some of my husband's family came down to stay the night {or part of it!} at our place, so they all could leave bright and early {Read: 3am} to head to the beach for a chartered fishing trip. 

Since they were gone all day Saturday, I planned out a fun day for the kids and I. Not only to keep us busy and away from boredom, but also to wear them out so they would REALLY sleep good all night! 

We started off running a few errands around town, and then headed to the indoor play place for a little bit to get out any energy they had! We came home for a quick lunch and naps, and then headed off to a birthday party at our friends. They had a great time ... and got to enjoy their dessert first -- because as soon as the party was over, we headed to Cracker Barrel to enjoy a nice supper out, just the three of us! When we finally got home and got some baths, they were practically begging for sleep! 

Sunday was a bittersweet day. We got up and around like we usually do for church, but took the day to go visit family, as well. My Mother In Law is in from Seattle while her Mother is going through the last bit of her hospice care. So we went to see her, and say our goodbyes to Grandma. We're going to miss her -- but we know she's going to a better place; her real home! 

Safe to say -- it was a very long and exhausting weekend! 

And because it was so long and busy, and because today is a holiday, I've decided: NO GOALS THIS WEEK! 

We're going to use this week to try and get into a routine for the fall -- including our biweekly MOPS meetings, at-home preschool work, gym routines, and other activities. It will be nice to get back in the swing of things! 

Hope you all had a nice, relaxing holiday weekend -- and are looking forward to the start of FALL! 


  1. Days with just the little ones are the best sometimes! Looks like a fun and eventful weekend! Happy Labor Day!

  2. What is MOPS? I always see moms posting about it, but I have yet to figure out what it means... LOL
    Glad you had a nice weekend!! I wish we had an indoor play place. The closest thing we have us McDonald's... LOL Hawaii can't come soon enough!!
    Prayers for your family/grandma!!

  3. So glad you had a nice weekend. Sending lots of prayers to you and your family. Hugs!
