A weekend in review
We had a really nice and enjoyable long weekend. It is always great to have Matt home for an extra day, and we had a couple of opportunities to hang out with friends which was nice.
Tuesday afternoon my friend L called and said her church group had a couple of extra tickets to see our local Minor League baseball team in action on Thursday night if we were interested in going with them. Little enjoys watching “throw-ball,” as she calls it, so we jumped at the chance. After Matt got home from work Thursday we loaded up the kids and headed downtown to the ballpark. We really enjoyed the game, there just isn’t anything like the atmosphere of a professional sporting event. The kids did well, and we enjoyed spending time with friends. We even left saying that we would like to go again sometime; although, it would be nice to go when it is cooler than 95 degrees.
Friday we just hung out around the house and enjoyed being together. We made a couple of trips to Target and Best Buy to get accessories for Matt’s new toy – an XBox 360 – but otherwise it was a pretty low-key holiday.
Saturday evening a couple of families from church came over to cookout. The kids loved playing Wii, and the adults enjoyed some time to chat and catch up. It was pretty crazy around here, with seven kids 10 years old and under, and quite noisy, but I think everyone had fun.
It was a pretty busy weekend (by our standards), but a good one. And best of all? Boo has given up his second nighttime feeding – one down, one to go!
