weekending

Lately our weekends have been anything but low-key, but it's honestly not the worst thing in the world. Ask me again in two months how I feel about all of it, but this weekend wasn't so bad.

On Friday evening, we made dinner then headed to Akron to take a meal to a member of our church. Since the kids had been in the car for about half an hour we let them run around the mall for a bit. After we got home and got them in bed I actually headed back to Akron for girls night with my small group. We went to dinner (where I ate fried pickles and French onion soup - so healthy). I headed home around 11 and was totally exhausted by the time I went to bed.

Saturday morning we took the big kids to Journey to Oz at Playhouse Square. If you have kids I highly recommend this show! It was totally interactive--they brought kids up on stage throughout the show and encouraged you to participate in your seats. It lasted an hour and was perfect for our kids.

After the show we got Etta from Jon's parent's and headed home. We spent the rest of the day doing yard work, working on the bathroom, putting together the new beds from my sister in Elden's room, etc. Once the kids were in bed I also worked on reclaiming our room a bit from the chaos of this bathroom remodel.

Sunday morning we stayed home from church and had donuts for breakfast. My mom came over for a few hours to see the kids.
During nap time I met up with a few girlfriends at a local spa for some pampering and oh my heavens. I cannot wait to go back...
The robes felt like blankets and I was ready to take a nap.

Once I got home from the spa, we headed to Jon's parent's house to celebrate his brother's birthday.

It was a nice weekend, both due to our activities and the glorious weather. I am in no position to relax, though, because this is the current state of affairs of our garage:
Suffice to say, getting things organized for our yard sale in less than two weeks is a major item on our to do list.
