What a weekend!

I need a weekend to recover from the weekend. You know like you need a vacation to recover from a vacation!

Friday it poured all day and we were supposed to go to the baseball game. I thought for sure we would pass since the tickets were free anyway. Nope, we trucked down to Busch Stadium armed with ponchos. We stayed at J Bucks until the rain stopped and then went into the game. The kids had a blast! They were promised a couple of treats, so when Nathan saw the cotton candy man he raised his hand and waved him over. It was pretty funny to watch your 5 year old flag down a vendor!  I did have to deny the kids the $6.50 hot chocolate. It would have cut into my $7.25/beer budget! We did stop at the grocery store and got donuts and hot chocolate fixins for breakfast the next day. THey were up until at least 11, but woke up bright and early at 6:30. I wasn’t surprised.

On Saturday Ricardo got up at 5 to go for a bike ride. He got 2 miles from home and got a flat tire. He had to walk back. So, he decided to hook up the mountain bike and go to Castlewood. He got there at 6:20 and it didn’t open until 7, so he came home and took the dog for a 30 minute walk.

So basically he woke up at 5 to take the dog for a walk. Poor guy!

I took Piper Ann to dance class at 9. Ricardo picked her up and I headed to work. I was there until after 5. I ran home really quick, we threw the kids in the car and headed out to a birthday party. My dad was in town to visit my brother, so he met us there (he knows the family). We got home around 10, so it was day number 2 of staying up late. Of course, they woke up at their usual time!

Sunday I went with my dad to visit my brother. We stopped at Lowe’s on the way home to get a couple plants and some mulch. When we got home I put down some mulch and then suggested we walk to lunch. After lunch we hugged my dad goodbye and headed back out to Home Depot for more mulch and then down to the city for another birthday party! This meant no naps of course. We got home around 7 bathed the kids and put them down around 8.

Yesterday they slept a little later, but Nathan had school so we had to scramble to get there on time. While he was there, Piper Ann, Oliver and I headed to Walmart to get a couple staples and some more plants for my deck planters. As I was doing some planting, they were playing in the sand box that hasn’t had the lid on in weeks and full of water. They were having the time of their lives, so I let them.

That afternoon I filled a couple buckets of water, so they could fill their watering cans without having the hose on constantly. Within 20 minutes they were soaked from head to toe, but once again were having a great time.

After a quick game of Guitar Hero with Ricardo, they were off to bed (not without a 2nd bath for the day).

This morning the sleep deprivation caught up with them. Oliver slept until 7:45, Nathan until 8 and Piper Ann until 8:20. She insisted on sleeping in undies (eventhough I just bought a brand new package of pull ups and took them out of the bag) and woke up dry!! Hopefully it won’t be too detrimental to Oliver for wearing princess pull ups!

Sorry to be so wordy, I’m sure this is all completely fascinating to you.

    J BUCKS!! I’m so proud I know where that is.

    Sounds like total craziness. Fun, but craziness.
