Yes, you read that right: after a week straight of busting our buns to move/unpack/clean/etc., we finally had a little fun this weekend!
On Friday morning, I went to my first MOPS meeting here in Sugar Land. I can't tell you how good it felt to 1) look presentable, 2) get a little break from our youngest child, and 3) meet/chat with some other stay-at-home moms in the area! After that, I picked Davis up from school and headed over to Amanda's house to watch both of my gremlins and the twins while she had a parent-teacher conference at daycare. It sounded a little intimidating in theory, but since Avery was napping and the other 3 kiddos were all on their best behavior, it was easy peasy.
On Saturday morning, we ventured out with the Joiners to get some pictures of the kids at a local pumpkin patch. Unfortunately the ground was wet, the sun was bright, and the kids weren't feeling terribly cooperative, so Amanda made the executive decision for us to peace out and risk embarrassing ourselves with pictures at the local HEB instead. I'm glad she did because I think they turned out pretty darn cute!
On Saturday afternoon, we got a lot done around the house (and fortunately didn't watch our poor Aggies get their butts kicked). I'm not sure all the house productivity was really all that "fun," but the rest of my fam seemed to think shopping for mattresses for the guest bedroom was pretty entertaining?
On Saturday evening, we got together with Wade's entire fam for dinner at Cafe Adobe. I have no pictures as proof, so you'll just have to take my word for it. There were margaritas and queso and most importantly, lots of conversations about Ebola with my brother-in-law, who happens to be an EMT in Dallas! (Don't worry, he hasn't been exposed to it... but I made sure not to lick his hands or anything, just in case.)
On Sunday morning, we went to church! Just kidding. By "went to church," I actually mean we went to HEB, Lowe's, and Target at 8:30 in the morning. And then we spent the majority of the day busting our buns some more.
But to end on a good note, we took a break with the Joiners to let the kiddos
trash our new playroom like crazy animals play together and we went on a walk in our new 'hood after dinner.
Hope the rest of you had a fun weekend, too!
