Such a Busy Weekend

So this is what we've been up to lately. We've been busy!

The kids and I went to SF shopping. It was a LONG day as we had lots of things planned. We were on the road by8:30 am. I just HATE that it now takes me twice as long to get to SF - boy, is that A LOT of wasted SHOPPING time. And oh, the construction - I believe we went through FIVE or SIX areas! YUCK! We didn't pull into our driveway until 8:30 pm.

Our first stop was Best Buy. I got myself a printer/ scanner/copier. I haven't used it yet but I'm looking forward to it. Then we were off to Kohl's and the mall for my new work wardrobe. I was under a HUGE time constraint as we had plans to be in M by 3:00 to visit our old neighborhood friends. I didn't get all my shopping done so I'll be going back again soon. Aw, darn it! :) I hate it when that happens!

We got to M at 3:15 and the kids were so EXCITED to see their neighborhood friends. Their mom and I chatted while they played and the next thing we knew, it was 5:30! YIKES! We couldn't believe it. Where did the time go? We then met my friend Maria for some GREAT Chinese food at China Moon. They even had my FAVORITE green bean dish. It was all so YUMMY! And I got to see little Jordan, her son. He's such a cutie! I can't believe he's already 8 1/2 months old.

I was invited to play golf with Dean's mom, aunt, and sister. How intimidating! I've never golfed with anyone except my hubby and kids and then last summer, my dad, who told me I had an UGLY golf swing. So needless to say, I was a bit worried. Plus, Dean comes from a family of golfers. I swear they were all born with a golf club in their hand. Dean's family even lived across the street from the golf course and his parents have also managed a golf course. I do enjoy playing golf (for the most part) but I am NOT good. I finally agreed to play with them as long as they didn't laugh at me. So at 11 am, we set out for a round of golf. I found that even they have bad shots. Me a little more often than them. However, I still had some really nice shots and they let me know it. How kind! And they kept their word, nobody laughed at me! Then we had lunch at the clubhouse.

I finally got home about 2:15. I had arranged for Dean to take the kids to the pool at 1:00 because if you don't get there when it opens, you don't get a chair. Seriously! (A few days ago we arrived 5 or 10 minutes after it opened and ALMOST didn't find a chair.) So I went to relieve Dean from his post because he doesn't like going to the pool. When I got there, I had one lobster of a hubby. He remembered to spray the kids with sunscreen but not himself. Geez! And of course, he left it at home instead of taking it with him. His legs and arms are still really RED. STUPID guy, REALLY! I get so angry with him when it comes to the sun because he has LOTS of MOLES and last fall he had a cancerous spot removed from his temple so this is serious business. Anyways, the kids spent three hours swimming to their hearts' content.

When we got home, I thought it was a GREAT day for rootbeer and orange floats. So we called up Dean's parents, Dean's aunt who was in town, and Dean's sister and her three kids and invited them over. They were YUMMY! Then we all headed to the tennis courts/park because the kids wanted to play tennis. Here's Tanner & Hayley playing with their cousin Rylea.

For the past four years, I've been using my mother-in-law's old golf clubs, which are a petite set. For those of you that know me, you know that I am not petite. Well, on Saturday, Dean's mom finally saw me use them and later told Dean I really need new clubs because they are too small for me. So, being Target had a set on sale, I ran out and got me a new set of golf clubs - just my size! They are so COOL! And isn't that the most important thing about golf clubs? Besides being the right size? :)

The kids and I decided to go to the pool AGAIN. The weather was just so nice it'd be terrible to pass up a nice day because you don't ever know how many of those we will have. Also, there's supposed to be RAIN for most of this week so we definitely needed to go. So we spent another THREE hours at the pool. (My tan is looking pretty good! And YES, I use sunscreen.)

After supper, Grandma invited the kids over to watch a movie she had rented from Netflix. However, when they went to start the movie they found that the DVD was cracked. So they didn't get to watch Lemon Snickety's: A Series of Unfortunate Events (or whatever the name is). Instead they watched Shrek - an all-time kid's favorite.

Being Grandma had the kids, that meant the hubby and I were free to do .......... something! But what??? Well, we just couldn't stay home, could we? NO WAY! We did something WAY more EXCITING!! Instead we swung by Culver's and got a turtle sundae to share and drove through some of the dealerships looking at vehicles. How romantic, huh?! Guess you can tell we've been married awhile!

Today the kids had golf league this morning. And you guessed it, we went to the pool AGAIN. However, we didn't get there until almost 2:00 because of golf league and there were NO free chairs. This meant I would be on the ground. (I'm too old and spoiled for that.) At least I didn't have to lay on the cement because they have a grassy area. In M, I always took my own chair because they didn't have any at ALL but I don't think you can bring in your own chairs here in W, or at least I've never seen any brought in. (I might have to check on that because laying on the ground is not comfortable, especially if I'm going to be there three hours.)

I'm thinking this upcoming weekend should be a nice lazy weekend with no activities...........
