Weekend Recap

We had a really good weekend!  Right before I left work on Friday, my sister called and wanted to meet us for lunch.  Since we had no deadlines, we decided to take her up on it!  If was really nice to just sit and chat awhile!  Then we went home grabbed our bags and the kids stuff, dropped Jocelyn off at my wonderful sister-in-law’s and chatted there for awhile!  It was equally nice!  Then off to Ft. Wayne we went!  First we went thru the Botanical Gardens.  It was neat.  There was a lot that wasn’t in bloom but there was still quite a bit that was blooming.  Very refreshing to see color and life! J After that we were hungry for ice cream so we headed to Stone Cold Creamery.  OMG!!!!!!  That stuff is awesome and I am sure so bad for you!  But we just sat there and talked.  Might I add that we did a lot of that this weekend and it was wonderful?  While I love my children dearly, it is so nice to be able to finish my sentence with out pausing to correct someone or getting interrupted, etc…  After ice cream we went to Family Christian Bookstore!  Hubby and I could live in that store!  We love it!  We got each of us a book and the children each a book plus a couple other items.  Then we headed to Wal-Mart to grab some snacks and drinks for the room.  Finally we were on our way to the room!  It was so nice!  We ended up getting a whirlpool suite and it was beautiful!  They had chocolates in champagne flutes and sparkling apple cider in the fridge waiting on us!  It was so peaceful!  Also we didn’t grab dinner before because the room service for our hotel was Applebee’s so we just ordered room service, a first for me!!!!!!  And we relaxed!!!!!!!  Wonderful!!!!  Something I think every married couple needs to do once in awhile, especially if you have children!  It is almost like recharging a battery!!!!!!  Anyway, we slept in the next morning and then went down to the lobby for our “free” breakfast that was included in our package.  They had a little restaurant and we ordered omelets and had biscuits and gravy, yogurt, pastries, oatmeal bar, etc….  It was really nice, especially being free!  Then we went back to the room, finished getting ready and packed up and headed out.  From there we stopped by Goodwill and I got some pants and shorts to make 4 toddler skirts out of for Jocelyn and her friends at camp.  I will post pics to let you know how I do it.  Then we headed to Burlington’s where we got the kids new church clothes and hubby new shoes and shirts.  Then we were off to the Home and Garden show!  It was really cool.  I remember going when I was a kid but haven’t been there since.  The only complaint I had was they have now started walking around with beer carts!  L  We don’t drink or go to places that serve it so it was quite a surprise to us!  I was really disappointed.  I guess since I don’t drink, I just don’t understand why you need to have beer at a home and garden show?  Especially for the price they were selling it at?  I don’t know, I guess it was just a big turn off but we both still had fun looking at all the cool things that we could do, both inside and outside our home!  Lots of dreaming!!!!!!! LOL!  After that we went to Don Hall’s Prime Rib House.  Yummmmm!!!!!!  It had been a long time since I had Prime Rib.  It was very good.  And then it was off to get the kiddos!  (Whom I missed very much!)

Needless to say, it was a much needed restful weekend!  Hope everyone else enjoyed theirs as well!  This week hubby is getting a “new” old truck to fix up and tinker with!  He is so pumped and excited!  Corbyn is equally excited.  So that will be our weekend but it should be enjoyable!
