Another awesome weekend. Actually, I'm going to back up to Thursday night, because that's when the fun really started. In our school auction several weeks ago, I won a night out at a yoga studio. I was able to invite a bunch of my friends to join me for a yoga class, followed by wine and refreshments. Doesn't that sound awesome? Well, it was! I was a little nervous about it, because I honestly wasn't sure how many friends I could round up on a weeknight, but there ended up being nine of us, and it was perfect. We had such a great time, talking and laughing without having to manage the kids at the same time. Actually, we were having such a good time that I neglected to check my phone. If I had, I might've noticed that my husband was calling and texting me, wondering why I was so late! I guess we were having too much fun. Kevin pointed out later that perhaps it's an indication that I don't go out enough, and I think he's right. I can't remember the last time I went out with girlfriends. I need to do that more.
Saturday involved mostly yard work, prepping the garden beds for planting. It was fun to get dirty and see progress in the yard. (Oh! And have I mentioned we're getting a patio? The workers are here as I type, laying brick and getting us ready for a summer of being able to eat outside. Yay!) We interrupted our yard work to take the boys for ice cream and play frisbee. That night, we watched the movie The Impossible. Have you seen it? It's the true story of a family that survived the tsunami in Thailand. It will definitely keep your heart pumping, and you will cry. Even Kevin cried. Big happy tears. That is a movie that will stick with me for a while.
Sunday was a social day. We started with having friends over to our house for our usual Sunday morning pancake breakfast. They have three little girls, and the five of our kids had a blast playing together. We had fun too - winners all around! We fit in a little more yard work, and then we went over to another friend's house. Lots of playing and talking and laughing. An awesome end to a beautiful weekend.
