Weekend Recap

Joe was on call this weekend, so it forced us to make no real plans, which was just what we needed.  Friday, the kids and I enjoyed our last real day of summer break with haircuts for the girls and lunch at Applebee’s.

Saturday, I had to meet with a client in the morning and then Joe got called into work for the day/night so the kids and I hung out and did projects around the house.  I got the swingset stained, which was long overdue!

While I was staining the swingset, the kids were creating a play inside, so I got to watch that when I was done.

We spent the evening outside since the weather was perfect – we went for a walk, played basketball and volleyball, and the kids made an obstacle course in the driveway for their bikes.

Sunday, Danika and I went on a morning “date” to the grocery store, and I surprised her with McDonald’s hot cakes:)  It’s not often we get time alone, and I enjoyed it….even if it was only to get groceries!

Joe cashed in his birthday coupon for a free Ranger wash from the girls, and then we went on a Ranger ride down to the river Sunday afternoon.

It was a little cool on the ride home and I looked back and saw this…

We celebrated the end of summer with strawberry malts after supper!

I’d say we’re ready to tackle 4th grade, 2nd grade and Pre-K….although I don’t think any of us are ready for summer to be over:(
