We seemed to have a really long weekend, I think in part because my husband was off Friday and then again Sunday. So, it really felt like the weekend began Thursday night. It was Parent Observation Day at my daughter's ballet class so that was really a pleasure to watch. They have come such a long way in such a short period of time. They performed a portion of the dance they will be doing for their Christmas recital and now I can't wait to see the rest. They really were terrific.

Friday we took the kids to an outdoor mall because the weather was too gorgeous to pass up. There is a lot of open space for the kids to play and quite a few water fountains as well. It was just nice to be outside and not roast. We certainly have to take advantage of this weather while it lasts. (Which apparently isn't long as it is expected to be back in the 90's this week..Ugh!)

Saturday my husband was back at work so it was me and the kiddos. Both are battling colds so we spent most of the day at home writing on the sidewalk with chalk, playing in the sandbox, reading, and watching Robin Hood (one of my favorite childhood movies). Later in the evening we stopped by my parents for a visit. My daughter had to check out the new toys grandma bought. She was adequately pleased with the purchases to say the least.

Then, as mentioned before, Sunday was our 6 year anniversary. My husband and I went out for a few hours to eat at a relatively new restaurant in town. We had a great time just talking and spending time with one another, without the kids. We certainly don't do this often enough.

All in all, it was a fantastic weekend. So, what was on your agenda? How's the weather in your neck of the woods?

Sunday was GORGEOUS here! I sat outside in the chaise for a while reading or cross-stitching with the Ipod on shuffle - just relaxing. Hubby is in VT golfing so I had the house to myself as Cody was in and out.
Saturday I shopped by myself for a couple of hours for things needed, then picked up Cody from college, went to a friend's shop's open house.
Just relax relax relax.

Busy with school volunteer stuff Friday and Saturday, but Sunday was nice. Took a leisurely drive with a few family members to our little place on the lake. Gorgeous.

Happy Anniversary! We had a wonderfully beautiful weekend in South Carolina. I spent it in a hockey rink though...Go figure!

Thanks for the anniversary wishes!
Nancy, your weekend sounds ideal! I love to just sit outside when the weather is great and read.
Angie, I am certainly envious of your time spent on the lake. It must have been relaxing.
Candy, so were you playing or watching hockey?

I'm deep in a manuscript revision, so even though we were sunny and in the low 70s (warm for us, should be in 50/60s), I was indoors, working. Maybe next weekend I'll get out!
