My Weekend

  Since both Dave and Chad have Monday (today) off, we decided it would be a good
weekend to head up to visit Dave's family.  The kids are always content just to be able to play with cousins that they don't get to see very often.  But Joan (Dave's mom) is so creative and always has something super fun up her sleeve.  This weekend, we headed "to the movies".  Joan created a concession stand. 

Each of the boys were super excited to spend their tickets to buy the treats they wanted from the concession stand.   
Chad with some of his "loot". 

Greyson was certain to get in on the fun (and treats) with the big boys. 

 Dave brought the projector and we watched "Herbie Rides Again" on the big screen.  (Let me just
say-cinema has sure come a long way in the last 30+ years!)

It was such a fun idea.  Joan even sent each of the boys home with a little Herbie ornament as a souvenir.  Always a fun time. 

The next evening, the grandparents watched all the cousins so that us couples (Dave and I and his sisters and their spouses) could go on a group date.  It's been a long time since I have been on a date with other couples.  Boy, we sure laughed a lot!   I am a big believer in dates-they renew my spirit. 

It's always fun to get away.  And I guess it's always good to get home, and get back to a routine, and kids going to bed at a decent time.
