This weekend is the 1st of two three-day weekends we get in February. And by "we" I mean the kids & I. Bryan doesn't get 3-day weekends, and he rarely gets 2-day weekends. Most weekends he works during nap-time or after the kids go to bed, if not during the day... while we're both glad he's working, it is difficult not to have a whole weekend of family time.
Yesterday was the one day of this long weekend that he got to be "free" - he and my dad drove up to San Jose to catch a Sharks game while the kids & I spent time with my mom & grandma. Errands, play time, a movie, and lots of snacks later, we met back up with Bryan and headed over to a friend's house for dinner and Rock Band. It was a fun, but exhausting, day.
Today was another fun one. This morning I packed the kids up in the bike trailer, hitched the dog to the bike, and went to the park for a morning of fun. Let me say that again. I placed by 41 & 38 pound children in the 25+ pound bike trailer, attached the 60+ pound dog, and rode to the park.
It was fun, but good gracious I am out of shape.
Then we tried to walk to the library, but it was closed. Boo. This is the second time in as many weeks I've tried to take the kids to library and been denied. I have hopes it will be open tomorrow, but since it's a holiday I'm not going to hold my breath.
During naps (well, for G), Penelope and I went grocery shopping. It's always nice to spend time with just the two of us. She really seemed to enjoy it, I know I did.
When we got home I started a sponge starter for tomorrow's bread, made heart shaped dog biscuits, made sugar cookie dough for tomorrow's cookies, made dinner, and made lemon ricotta muffins.
Oh, the dishes.
And Oh, this post is boring.
Maybe it will be one of those posts that the kids really appreciate when they look back over the blog as adults (ha, like they'll read it).
I do have some pictures, but they're on my phone which is in the other room and Downton Abbey is on, so there's NO WAY I'm going to leave to go get it.
