It's been a long winter, and its not quite ready to let go, but it was a GORGEOUS spring day today. Almost summer like.
61 degrees when I woke up this morning, so I knew exactly where I was going to spend at least some of my morning -- my happy place!
But it was short lived, because we had to get out to Brendan's first ever soccer game.
Considering it was his first time ever, in any kind of organized sport, I was happy with his performance. It's always fun to see a bunch of 4 and 5 year olds running after the ball. Unfortunately, one of the three kids that he was grouped with seems to really enjoy the ball, so since my boy isn't very aggressive, he didn't get a chance to kick it much. But it was fun watching him out there, and he had fun, which is the MOST important!
After the game, we headed to the Shoal Creek Living History Museum for their Easter activities. There was an Easter egg "hunt" were the kids earned some treats, some old time games, including sack races and stilts, a few crafts, and we watched the blacksmith make nails, as well as taking a look inside of some of the old buildings -- including the jail.
Following THAT was lunch at Burger King, birthday present shopping at Target, and what was supposed to be a little time at home to relax (but turned into a mad rush to pick up the house when I found out my sister-in-law and brother-in-law were coming over to visit), before we headed out for our evening entertainment.
Grilled chicken and asparagus (hot dogs for the kids) was on the menu at my co-worker/friends house, for a girls night with kids. Both kids had fun playing with the other kids, and once the sun went down and the movie was turned on, the adults were able to finally enjoy some time on the deck with a beer.
It was a crazy day, but unfortunately, next Saturday will be worse! Church Easter egg hunts and crafts in the morning, then the boy's second soccer game, then a birthday party for a dear friend's daughter, then ANOTHER birthday party for a classmate of Brendan's...at least those parties are going to be extremely relaxing and fun! Better try to relax this week in preparation...
