We are just wrapping up a very busy weekend. On Friday the boys had a half day at school so we had a rare treat - we went out for lunch with my husband. We met him in Chick-fil-A and some of our friends also showed up. What a fun, spontaneous, playdate. It was my husband's first time in Chick-fil-A. He was surprised about how busy it was an impressed by the service and cleanliness.
Saturday was jam packed. I took the boys to the playground to hang out with friends early in the morning. After that we rushed over to the Home Depot for their monthly kid's project. All 3 of my boys made firetruck toys! I think they are just great:
Unfortunately, during these 2 activities I developed a raging headache. We ate lunch quickly at home and then I had a short nap. After the nap, Big Boy and I rushed to the Arboretum for a kayaking class. It was the same class we did last year and we loved it even more! We spent about an hour paddling around one of the lily-pad covered ponds. The weather was perfect - a bit cool but still sunny. This class cured my headache! Both Big Boy and I are in love with kayaking. I wish I could figure out a way to go more often.
During the instruction part of the class, I saw a snake in the bushes. The instructor looked at it and confirmed it was a ribbon snake. Then she looked closer and saw it was trying to eat a frog. She separated the frog and the snake and the frog hopped away. Then she explained that normally she'd have let the snake eat the frog but the frogs make a terrible sound while dying and it goes on for a long time so she didn't want to have to listen to it for the whole class. Ick ick ick!!!!!
We rushed home after the kayak class and hurried over to our friend's house for the evening. My boys went for a swim in their heated pool and we had a pizza supper. Not a bad day.
On Sunday morning we tried to go to the Zoo but we couldn't get parking! In the afternoon we went to a birthday party for one of Little Boy's friends. It was a nice afternoon and now we are relaxing.
