All American Weekend



I hope everyone has had a great weekend. We have. Especially on Saturday. We spent the day at the lake. We're fortunate to have a large lake about 25 mins away from us. We can load up the car, pack a lunch, pick up the boat and spend most of the day having good family fun. All that and still be back home late in the afternoon. That's the best part because, honestly, I get bored easily at the lake. I can do a day at a time, but not much more than that. I can't help it. I'm a beach girl! Also, I'm just not good at driving a boat when Mr. Pink wants to impress us with his skiing abilities. Something about not having a brake scares me!



As if we hadn't had enough family fun yesterday, we came home from the lake, showered, and headed off to Durham. We went to the home of the Durham Bulls once again to see a baseball game. However, last night we saw TEAM USA play TEAM Canada days before they fly off to Beijing to compete in the Olympics. How cool! The boys loved it and I did, too. When Mr. Pink made this suggestion I may or may not have had thoughts of "it's going to be hot", "I'm too tired", "baseball again?" Anyway, #2 loved "reading" the program, the 7th inning stretch song and all the snacks while #1 loved dancing to the music and going to the bathroom with his mommy. Not! He's 7 and was horrified when I pulled him into the women's restrooms. Another boy about his age was standing in the doorway, and seeing #1's protest, said "I know exactly how you feel man!" It was so funny. I just wasn't going to let my "baby" go alone in the men's bathroom! We got home at 10:00 and both minis were asleep in the backseat. Amazingly we all made it to church this morning. Today I'm cleaning my closet and Mr. Pink is washing cars. A lack luster day after yesterday, but I'm content to be home. How was your weekend?
