Well, not really, but we had an awesome Saturday last weekend. I know, I know, this weekend is around the corner. But, I'm bad at this blogging thing. And I have never stated otherwise.
Can I just tell you how awesome it is to have Tim home every Saturday and Sunday? Well, I will. You knew I would anyway. I LOVE IT.
It's so perfect. Last weekend we did a little boat "shopping"...we are thinking about buying a boat when we get the RV paid off. I know, we could possibly be super crazy. Or super on to something awesome. See, we have planned a few vacations for this summer and everywhere we are going, we are like, "man...a boat would be awesome there." Seriously, those were our exact words.
But we will see, and I wasn't talking about 2 weekends ago, I started this post off talking about last weekend. I completely understand if you have already left and don't want to continue reading. I swear I
talk write in circles.
Sooooo...back to the topic at hand. Last Saturday was family day.
We started off with pancakes. And eggs. And bacon. And our friend (the dinosaur - Madi's words) Aunt Jemima. And I don't know why Madi thinks she is a dinosaur. But my kids make whatever they are eating into play things. Drives me crazy. We don't play with our food like Wednesday from the Adams Family.
I was going to take pictures of the pancakes cooking on the griddle. Because I love pictures of food on my griddle. But I didn't, because I had to act fast and get everyone's food ready like a crazy person.
So I give you this...
My empty plate. You get the gist. It was good.
After breakfast, we headed to a furniture store (I know what you are thinking, who starts off family day at the furniture store, well, I do. Deal with it) where I found the same exact same sectional that we did at Jerome's. For $700.00 less. What? Yeah, you heard me. But, it's not down filled, pshhh...who cares? I'm on a budget baby! And it's comfortable as heck. So there Jerome's. That wasn't nice. If only I had a delete button, I'd delete that sentence.
So, now, we are only about 400 bucks short. It is my birthday coming up. And I do think I deserve it. I'll let you know what happens.
After the furniture store, we took the girls to the park. They had such a good time. Partly because their Daddy is the ultimate good time. He is.
And I have a million pictures to prove it. But I don't want you to think that this blog is all about him. It's about these pretty ladies...
By the way, I know what you are thinking, from the lighting in the pictures. What time did they start their family day? It was late.
Because we enjoy our pj filled mornings. It's what we do. And if our pj filled mornings last until the afternoon, who cares? Right?
Just one of the hubs, being all that he can be...jumping off the swing. I love him.
Good form right?
And, you can't see it, but he's going down this tube chasing after the girls. You can tell by Madi's face!
A moment of silence really quick. I broke my new 50 mm 1.4 lens. I know. It's sad. I really shouldn't be allowed to carry expensive equipment around. Riley had a play date at the park after preschool a few weeks ago and I was running late. Put my camera on top of the truck. Strapped Madi in her seat and drove away.
With my camera on top of the car. I know. I'm stupid. But the camera is okay. Just my new lens is broken. And I love that lens. It's magical. Or was magical. I mean I could still use it, if I was awesome at manually focusing a jammed lens. But I'm not. And I am not going to take away from my sectional money to buy another one. That extra money from the cakes is really being missed right now. I'm not going to lie.
Enough sadness and back to the great Saturday that we had. After the park...we headed to Little Caesar's.
Nothing beats a hot and ready. I mean for 5 bucks. You can't go wrong. And (don't tell my brother because he swore I'd let the kids start eating up in the bonus room when we got the craft table and I assured him I wouldn't) we ate our pizzas up in the bonus room. While watching TV. It was fun. So much fun!
The girls loved it. And see those chairs that came with the table? They won't be staying. The only way to buy the table (Craigslist) was to buy the chairs too. So, I offered 20 bucks total for all 4 chairs. And I will paint them the same color (aqua) as the legs of the table. Because I'm thinking in another house, it might be the perfect breakfast table...for an aqua and gray kitchen. Hey, I can dream right? Any who...my plan is to store them in the garage and get seating that fits underneath the table to save room. Plus I don't want it to look like a kitchen table upstairs. It's a craft table.
After dinner...we recreated Golden Spoon. With
our the girls' favorite toppings.
And watched Bedtime Stories.
In our pjs. The movie was a little too old for some of us (Madi)...but it was still fun. And I think we will be making this a Saturday tradition.
But not this Saturday, and this is when I ask for your prayers.
Tim left this morning via plane to Oregon to go see his family. His Dad is having open heart surgery tomorrow morning and we thought it would be the best if he went up there. It is a routine procedure, but it's still scary. And it's open heart, not open chest surgery, which I found out tonight that there is a difference.
Please pray for him and the family. And on a selfish note, for me. This is the first time I will be sleeping alone in 6 years. And it freaks me out. But I might go spend the rest of the weekend with the kids at my Mom and Dad's.
Please pray for Dave. We are anxious, nervous, and everything else in between.
Love to you all. And thank you.
