Friday is always pizza and movie night and as I mentioned we went to Cinema Cafe to see Shrek Forever After and I'm still in awe at how far 3D movies have come. I also liked the spacious seating and will definitely go back. The tickets are cheaper (in the hopes you're ordering food) so it's a win/win.
Saturday they were calling for thunderstorms all day but we had planned on spending the day at Water Country. Usually when bad weather is called for it lasts for a little while and then the sun comes out when it's too late to pack up and go anywhere. We played the odds and packed up and went anyway. We made it to the park just after they opened. It was cloudy most of the 20 minute drive but the sun came through just as we pulled into the parking lot. It was beautiful all day. Even better, most people weren't as risk taking as we are and the park was pretty empty.
We all got plenty of natural vitamin D. We kept the kids lubed up well but Hubster and I neglected to get our backs well so...
Sunday I had to work all day so Hubster took the kids to the library to pick out some new books and some movies to watch when I got home. They played in the sprinkler with one of their friends and we had another movie night after it got dark.
Yesterday Hubster slept in due to the fact that he had to get up at 4am this morning to fly to Denver for a meet and greet with his new employers. The kids and I headed out for our yearly trip to Big Lots to set up a backyard oasis for them.
We do this every year because we usually lose the stuff or neglect to take care of it from the previous year. I spent $50 on the pool, floats, bamboo mats and the umbrella. We would have spent that much if we had gone out somewhere and now they have somewhere to hang out and cool off all summer long. They played together nicely (which never happens) for more than 3 hours. Well worth the money. We then cooked burgers on the grill for dinner and had a relaxing evening before getting back on our school night schedule.
How did you spend your weekend?
