Wow, what a weekend!! It was busy, it was fun, it was tiring, but WOW...it was great!
Saturday started off bright and early as usual with the normal breakfast, coffee and kids.
I left around 9am to vacuum out the van, get some cash for the Red Sox game, fill up the gas tank ($61.10 for gas!!!! crazy!!!), hit the grocery store for a few things and last, but not least...Starbucks...mmm-mmm good!
I was back at the house around 10:15. Just in time for Mike to leave for a co-op meeting. It was just me and the kids for a while until my soon to be sister-in-law, Carrie, arrived. She was awesome enough to watch the kids so Mike and I could go to the game! (Love you Carrie!!!)
Mike came home around 1:30 and ten minutes later we were out the door! Can I just tell you that we're pro's now when it comes to the subway and getting to Fenway? We're pretty proud of that since this was only our third time...fourth?...hmmm...anyway, we don't go too often so we were happy just to know our way around and be able to tell people which orange line to get on. Pretty confusing for first timers, good thing we were there *winking, of course*
So, we make it to Fenway and the seats are amazing!! It was such a gorgeous day, the sun was shining, it was the perfect temperature, great company (thanks Mike & Karin), and the game was awesome....THE RED SOX WON! What could be more perfect!? It was so nice to relax, just the two of us! To be "Mike & Steph" for a little while.
The first game Mike took me to (my first game ever) was for Mothers Day last year. Each time we've see Daisuke (Dice K) Matsuzaka pitch and each time they've won!!
(Ah-ha...it is four games...I just remembered...we've seen Dice K three times and Tim Wakefield once)
Moving on to Sunday...
I ended up going to the early service at church so I was up at 5:45 that morning. Mike and the kids stayed home which was good for them. The music was awesome and the sermon was great!
It was just me so I was able to hang out for a while after church just chatting and hanging out with my family for a bit! After that, two of my sisters came home with me. The ride home consisted of stopping at the mall (which didn't open until 12pm!!!) so I picked up a pair of pants for Mike and he was the lucky one that day.
When we got home we ate, relaxed for a bit, did kid stuff, and then....out the door...again!
This time to take his mom and dad out for a late Mothers Day dinner! We dropped the kids and my sisters at my moms house and off we went. Dinner was really nice and the company (and conversation) was good!
After dropping them back off at home we went to grab our children. Well, as soon as we pulled in Afton informed me that she was sleeping over Grammies house until Wednesday! Of course, she told us it was okay because Grammie said yes. She was so excited so she ended up staying. The sad part is she said to me, "I want to live here forever and never go home." Awww...sad! Of course, I know how that goes...I was young once...well, I'm still young, I guess...ok, fine, I'm not that young, but I'm not that old! I'm just 29 forever...and that's final! What I'm trying to say is, I remember saying the same thing so I didn't take it personally. Besides, a kid would have to be crazy not to want to live at Grammies house...no "house rules", she can watch movies more, she spoiled like crazy since she's the only kid in the house...uh, yeah...can I move it to and never go home?
It's already weird without her though. So quiet! We may pick her up early.
So, that's pretty much it in a nutshell. Our exciting, always busy weekend. Lots of fun though.
I think I'll post pictures in another post since this one is pretty long already.
Be back later with some really cool pictures and a video (if I can figure out how to get it on here...never done one of those before).
