This Should be Every Weekend

I have decided that every weekend should be a 3 day weekend like this one. That extra day gives everyone in the family enough time to get what they need to get done (like for me work and chores) and still have plenty of time for family togetherness and fun.

Friday we took the kids down to Palm Desert's Civic Center Park. This is the place where they have the pond with ducks and turtles that I have frequently photographed. This time however, we brought the kids bikes and let them ride around the numerous hilly paths and they had a great time. The idea was to wear them out so we could run some errands afterwards but apparently endless energy abounds because they ended up running around the sporting good store and even when contained in a cart at Kohls and Sam's Club, they were laughing and carrying on with each other like nothing. It was a very nice family evening (pictures to come)

Saturday night we had Scottie and Ali over for dinner and then Sunday we took the kids bowling. We have been bowling a couple times for play dates and birthday parties but this is the first time we went bowling as a family. It was fun. I only wish I could bowl as good in real life as I can on Wii Sports. Now we still have all day Monday at home to relax and get some stuff done around the house. I love 3 day weekends!

Now you may be wondering what happened with our trip to Phoenix to meet up with LauraC. Well lets just say that it was unfortunately not in the cards for us to make the drive out there and I would be SO disappointed if it were not for the fact that I will have a second chance to meet up with her again in 2 weeks so stay tuned for that adventure.

And I really wasn't planning on making this a magoomba post but it seems that mother nature didn't like me bragging about our warm sunny weather last week because now we are due for several storm systems in a row that will not only bring lots of rain but wind as well. Good thing it was nice out for my 10 mile walk Saturday.

Whether you have today off or not, I hope you find a way to enjoy your Monday!

I wish I had today off, Cooper's preschool was closed, I had taken last Friday off to spend w/my mom while she was visiting for the weekend and it was an overall super stressful work day. Yuck.

I totally wish my Wii bowling could substitute for real bowling, I would do so much better!

I'm all for the 3 day weekend thing. I didn't have off, and it stinks. Boo hoo...

I'm sorry that you didn't get to meet up with Laura, but dude, YOU WALKED 10 FREAKING MILES!
