What a weekend!
The weekend is over and I’m not going to lie, I’m a little bit sad about it. We had so much fun and did SO much this past weekend, I knew a weekend recap was a must. So be prepared for minor details and lots of photos. I always think the best way to recap is with plenty of photos.
Friday was co-op, a quick lunch and an “official” first for the girls, roller skating. Cue all of the laugh/crying emojis friends it was hysterical.
First off let me say I should have taken Marissa YEARS ago. Secondly when you think going skating for the first time with friends will be a fun group activity, think again. Next we need to invest in some roller blades (so much easier than skates). Lastly it took about 2 minutes to get the above group photos before we (and they) gave up.
So we took this one instead.
It may not have been the fun hang out time we imagined and it might have been MUCH harder but boy those kids had a blast, bruises to prove it and all.
After skating it was packet pick up with Marissa then home where we made pizza and vegged out for the remainder of the evening.
Saturday was Marissa’s very first 5K. For all of the details on that be sure to check back tomorrow! For now lets just say she may or may not have gotten second place in her age division :D!
Next we headed to Home Depot to make some butterfly houses.
We also tested out some patio furniture while waiting on daddy. I think this chair is a winner if you ask Emily.
Back home is was time for laundry, cleaning, making messes while I was trying to clean and doing some work on the car.
Early in the evening we headed to Carthage MO (home of the Jasper County Courthouse) for a car show then stopped at Freddy’s for our favorite greasy burgers before heading home. With the girls in bed Russ and I wrapped up the evening by watching ‘No Escape’ That was the most stressful 1 hour and 45 minutes of movie watching ever. Just not cool.
Sunday was church.
Emily’s shirt is fantastic, right?!
Consignment sale prep.
A trip to the shooting range.
And LOTS of time spent playing outside.
A solo run to JoAnn where I had a record-breaking wait in line. It was PAINFUL friends. A huge line and only one register open. I am the worst at waiting in lines.
We had a quick dinner and a long talk about obedience with the girls. Oh those dinners are just as hard as a parent as they were when I was a kid. We cleaned things up, spent some time on the porch and tucked our girls into bed thankful for such a great weekend together.
The week ahead is busy. Earlier schedules, Dr appts, errands and achievement testing. Weekends like this give us just what we need to take on the next week with a smile, even on a Monday.Our weekend recap: #skating, #shooting & #secondplace. Come take a peek. Click To Tweet
