We’ve had a good weekend!
I took Friday off and ran errands and got my haircut… had some “down” time by myself. It was a good way to start the weekend.
On Saturday the kids and I went to Rochester to visit my parents. We also were able to get in a visit (and swimming) with my best friend from junior high who I haven’t seen since probably the early 90s!
Yesterday both kids got some special attention. Chad & I took Maria to Valleyfair and Charlie stayed home with Grandpa & Grandma all by himself. Both kids were very excited!
This was our 2nd visit to Valleyfair with Maria and I have to say it was very different! As she had grown over 3″ since last summer (and over an inch since May!) and was now able to go on most of the big rides. The Wild Thing and Monster being her favorites! Her favorite from last year was not quite what she remembered although she tried to make it fun! She also declared the Looping Starship (the upside down Viking ship) the most boring ride ever, even though Chad almost got pegged in the head with someone’s cell phone that came loose.
Today is laundry day… 🙂 and both kids are off to school tomorrow – Maria starting 1st grade and Charlie starting preschool! Both are excited!
