Weekend Recap...

Friday - The boys had a friend (we'll call him "D") spend the night Thursday night. I was driving the three of them to gymnastics Friday afternoon and the following conversation took place...we'll call it "The Righteous Indignation of Pre-Adolescence"...

T2 - Our school is so stupid - we can't even wear flip flops to school! (said with disgusted snarl on his face)

T3 - I know! (hmph) We can't even wrestle at recess!

D - Can you believe we're not even allowed to run on the concrete at recess?!

Me - They just want to keep you safe and injury free while you're on school grounds because they're responsible for you. (I may as well have grown a second head for this "mom commentary")

T1 - They treat us like babies. What do they think will happen, we do all those things at home all the time and don't get hurt.

T2 - Yeah....and we can't even wear tank tops.

T3 - Yes we can, they just can't be spaghetti straps..

D - The sleeves of all our shirts have to be wider than my principle's hand.

I didn't say another word for fear of growing a third head.

Friday evening - The Martina McBride concert.

I was excited about this concert for so many reasons. Reasons that had absolutely nothing to do with being a Matina fan. I'm not. Don't know her songs. Didn't even know what she looked like until I google searched her when I found out I was going. I was thrilled to be out with friends, I was thrilled to be going to ANY concert because I love music, I was thrilled to get all girlied up, and last but certainly not least.....I was thrilled to FINALLY get a chance to wear these......


I bought these shoes several months ago. I bought them for their cuteness. I bought them for their sassyness. I did NOT, however, buy them to wear with any particular outfit. I have a shoe problem. I buy shoes because I love them and then bring them home to discover that I have nothing to wear them with. I made it work tonight because I was determined to wear them. Don't I look fabulously tall in the photo below?



Yeah, I'm not. Fabulously tall that is. It's the shoes! I'm actually only 5'3".


This is my wonderfully forgiving and beautifully fabulous friend and neighbor, L....yes, the same L that I stood up at breakfast several weeks ago.





I didn't bring my good camera with me so the photos aren't so great. But here's Martina. I tell ya....I must have been living under a rock.....how on earth could I not have heard that voice before. Holy HELL that chick can sing. And she's just Gawgeous!


Saturday - This was Hubby's father's last weekend visiting so we had hoped to all spend the day at the zoo. But the weather wasn't cooperating. So we took the kids to the movies to see Kung Fu Panda (very cute). And then did a little walking through the new outdoor mall before dinner at PF Changs.




Sunday -

Hubby spent the morning and early afternoon golfing with his Dad while I took the kids to a nearby water park. All the boys from gymnastics were meeting up there to spend a fun afternoon together. I love days like this. That's my son walking the stairs on his hands....show off.....;) All the kids to the right of him are other friends/gymnasts from the gym.

I was reminded once again why I never have pictures of Thing 2....all the other boys were off doing one thing and my little Thing 2 was perfectly content wandering around doing his own thing.





After the water park we came home to start dinner and spend our last evening with Grandpa.

It was a good weekend.

How was yours?

I am glad you loved the concert; I was wondering about that! Great photos, BTW. I think I shall show my Sam the photo of your son walking on his hands-to let him know that "Real" boys really DO stuff like that!

Busy, busy, busy! I'm so glad you liked the concert and have discovered the wonder and beauty that is Martina McBride. Isn't she amazing?? I think she's got one of the best female voice in all of music.

Tammy, you are PRETTY! I love your outfit and hair :) And your little one walking the stairs on his hands? Um, can we say TALENTED?

Colleen said...

Sounds like a great weekend!

LUV the shoes! I try not to do that any more - buy shoes with which I have nothing to wear. (Whew - that sentence was hard to write!) I saw Martina a few years ago and had the same reaction - I knew who she was, wasn't a *huge* fan, but WOWSERS - tiny woman with a HUGE voice!

Mama Zen said...

I share your shoe problem, and I definitely would have had to have those!

Dana said...
