I took a blogging break out of laziness last week, and being in a general funk with not keeping up on the housework. Over the weekend, I did not hit the internet much at all because hubby had a rare work-free weekend. Saturday he took the boys to the park to enjoy the unusually cool and non-humid weather we were experiencing. While they played, I cleaned the house. That night, we had an AWESOME time going out with another couple to a winery and then to dinner. It was sooo nice to get out of the house without the kids and leave them with a reliable babysitter while we enjoyed adult conversation with some really fun and easygoing people. The kids were great with the babysitter and she had them all in bed by the time we got home.
Sunday, we rather randomly decided to make the 2 hour trek to the zoo. The boys had so much fun, and were so worn out by the end of the day. we probably only saw about half of the zoo partly because of the ages of our kids, partly because the entire state decided to take advantage of the unusually cool weather and go to the zoo and finally because we did not even arrive until after lunchtime. Still, it was plenty long for the kids for sure!
We are back to normal around here again and I am actually trying to keep the boys at home a couple days this week, as they all seem to be getting a little over-tired with all the summertime activities. So I’m hoping for lots of excuses to stay put for the next few days.
