Our Hugely Busy Weekend!

Decided with all the healing and such that needed to be done that we could all use a change of scenery, so we headed north to my parents house!

We had a great time (on our way home tomorrow) and we managed to stay busy all but a couple hours actually. It's amazing how busy we are....but, guess it is better then allowing people to get bored and to just lie around.... *sarcasm*

Here are just some of the activities we did in our 5 days up here...

Went to the park, did some garage sale shopping, took my dad to his Dr.'s appointment (NO CANCER!!!!!!!), watched "Horton hears a who" and Desperaux (kids didnt like either! 2 less movies to buy!!!!), went fishing twice, got haircuts, got the oil changed in the van, played in the yard, went to get ice cream, went driving to see the deer (saw one in 2 days...but did see some turkeys...), and went grocery shopping twice. Oh...yea... we even played at McD's one day! Whew... I'm worn out just remembering it all.....

The boys have been begging to go fishing for months now.... we went twice.... they are kinda disappointed with it... after all, they thought that all you had to do was to throw the line in and the fish would come in with it.... they didnt realize you could go fishing and NOT get any fish! Our first trip out we caught 4 bullheads... they liked to see the fish getting reeled in...but wouldnt touch it...and they said it was stinky.... we went back out tonight...but alas... we didnt even get a nibble... the boys were mad... yelling at the lake and such...

We will try again near our house.... I began to fish at their age... guess ya get used to the boredom that comes along sometimes!

I didnt take many pics this weekend... I was toddler wrangling too much to really use the camera! But, here are some pics from our busy weekend!



F enjoying the park!




K, who begged me to also take his pic!

Three boys just sitting on a swing....


"Uh... Mom! The Fish arent biting!!!!!"

"I'm not holding the pole if there isnt a fish on it!"

"We waited an hour for THIS????"

So ecstatic to hear of the "no cancer" news and what fun family time even if the fish were limited!
