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?
