Memorial Day

This weekend was a busy, blur of a weekend. Friday night we went out to dinner and then on a search for Wii Fit, but couldn't find it anywhere! We were a little disappointed, but decided we would continue our search Saturday.

Saturday we slept in a little and then had to get Landon to a birthday party by 1:00pm. He was brave and stayed on his own which gave Zoe and I time to go looking for some clothes for her...she needed some shorts since she's grown so much since last summer. We found some good deals at Kohl's, but it wasn't too fun shopping with her since she and I didn't agree on the clothes. {Everything she wanted was too small/tight, and I REFUSE to do that...clothes are just too expensive.} So, after that we picked up Landon and Tony and went to the mall and found the last copy of Wii Fit at EB Games. It is a fun game so far, but man there just isn't much joy in someone/something telling you to lose some weight! I mean, it isn't telling me anything I don't already know, but geez.

Sunday we got up early, well 8:30 am, and headed over to mom and dad's for the day. We had lunch at McDonalds (mom was craving McD's) then went to the house and raced each other on Mario Kart. Once we were bored of that we took Landon and Jaron to the pool where they swam for about 30 seconds. The water was so cold!

Today we slept in till about 9am or so then Tony and I got the yard straightened up some. I did the cutting/weed eating and he dug out more of the corner plants that we are trying to get rid of. It was pretty hot today, near 90, so we got tired of that pretty fast! After showering we headed out to Lowe's to get an umbrella for the patio, we really needed some shade. We had to take the floor model because they were all sold out. The man told us they had just put that floor model up this past Wednesday because they were selling as quickly as they were getting them in, and because they had to take it down, and it took awhile, they gave us 10% off...lucky us!

Thanks for the note about the Wii Fit. I needed to hear that. If the Fit had told me will no warning I may have tossed it out the window.
That's what I want for my Birthday.

Weather and children. I tell you. I don't know why they think they should be swimming already! It's still spring, but we go to the pool once a week... ERRR! Crazy kids!

Water Balloons

When my kids told me they didn't know what to do with themselves yesterday I suggested they go outside and play with the water balloons....
