10.May.2010 Journal

I had planed to do a wonderful post for my mama on Mother's Day but as usual the thought did not get executed!  Instead I'll journal our memories of another great but busy weekend..

Friday night we made the 2 hour drive back to my parents house [again] and picked up pizzas for everyone on the way.  After our Casey's Pizza we played 500 [the card game] until after midnight!  Saturday my mom, 2 sisters, & myself went to the nail salon to get our fingers & toes done!  When we returned home the boys had lunch [pork loin & twice baked potatoes] ready to eat.  They had also picked up the house & set the table!  This year we got my mom a Tempurpedic pillow for Mother's Day.  She was pretty excited!  After lunch we played games for a little longer before Adam & I had to head to his family.  
An hour & a half later we were at 'the farm' for our nieces 9th birthday party.  It was great.  The men fried fish, chicken, & fries for everyone & the kids had a blast playing outside on the swing set, 4 wheelers, & other 'farm toys'.  Mya was thrilled to get lots of cash so she could purchase her iTouch.  We all had a great time.  After the party we headed to my inlaws house to play Cribbage before bed. 
Sunday we gave Adam's mom her card [& iTunes gift card] and headed to Adam's sister's house for a family lunch.  Guess what they made?  Smoked PORK & homemade bread! :)    It was pleasantly warm [after the forecast said 30*] so we enjoyed the sun for a while.  The kids & boys [& Murdock] played catch and fished off the dock, the girls soaked up the sun from the deck.  Later we cut the 3 pies that my MIL made [Lemon Meringue, Peanut Butter, & Chocolate!] and played cribbage again.  The girls won every single game the entire weekend..we're good like that! :)
On our drive back home [another hour drive...yes, I feel like we have drove & drove & drove the past week!] our friends A&P called.  They invited us to dinner and their place followed by S'MORES!!  Oh how I love me some smores! :)  We first declined since we were so tired and wanted to reschedule for another night this week but after remembering we have rain in the forecast the entire week we decided to go ahead and go.  We were very glad we did.  The meal was amazing & smores were impeccable! :)  P even gave us a 'free s'more clinic' & proceeded to ignite his marshmallow! :)
Today it's rainy & cold & WINDY.  I let the girls take their 'sumbrellas' out & play in the rain for a bit.  They were pretty excited!  

Mom & Dad should have landed in Mexico by now.  I am anxiously awaiting my email to confirm that.  Although I am extremely jealous of them I pray they have BEAUTIFUL weather this week!  I already missed my mom when I couldn't call her on the way to work this morning.  We have a similar schedule so it's weird not to be able to pick up the phone and ring her!  I am so thankful to have the best mama in the world!

C Meal & 23Before24 Update to be posted soon..
