Birthdayish, Randomish Tuesday

So with a holiday and a birthday, we had a full weekend, but it was wonderful.  Shall I tell you about it?  Why yes I shall:

  • To start. this boy, the big one, turned 10.  i have decided to stop blinking, he grows when I do.  Just yesterday, I swear he was like 3.

  • He wanted to take three friends to the zoo.  It was a big undertaking as the zoo is 150 miles away and is like a whole day and commitment and all that.  The friends we know well enough (we've actually met the parents so they know we aren't completely nuts) were mostly out of town---long weekend and all.  So we found the friend that wasn't and after dropping Bruiser on the grandparents--we headed to the zoo and Imax.

  • So as shown, a great time was had by all.  Even if a golf ball hit our car and took out our emblem.  One in a million shot.
  • Sunday started out with a trip to the grocery store and then getting the grill going for the ribs requested by Turbo. We had the grandparents from both side over and some friends. Great food and good times.  We couldn't have asked for better weather.

Opening presents.

Red velvet cake.

  • Turbo had a sleepover with two friends.  All had a good time. Everyone lasted the night and no one got left out.  We are thrilled to have found another family to spend time with.  It's hard to find a family you can get along with and the kids get along too.
  • Monday we headed up to the hills. I needed to have a trip out of town this weekend, even if we didn't go camping.
Even the dog got to stick his nose in the wind.

  • I do have to say, everyone who went camping in our area needs to thank us for not going camping.  They had fabulous weather.  If we had gone, the weather would have sucked.  It's like Jones' Law.
  • I still get hungry watching BBQ Pitmasters.
  • We are off an another field trip for Turbo tomorrow.  After this he only has one more.  Of course he has two weeks of school left.  But he's not at the top of the list for summer school this year.  He's making progress!  Hooray!
  • Tuesdays that masquerade as Mondays stink.
That's all the random my brain can come up with this week.  Go see Stacy for more.

  1. Yes, Tuesdays after a long weekend are always a little rough. They just feel so weird! Looks like a good weekend for you!

  2. Yet another confirmation that Turbo and PN are so much alike - in lieu of a party, PN wanted to take a couple of friends to the Dinosaur Museum. I love the idea of a zoo, I might have to suggest that to her for next year (unless she still has her heart set on a Hunger Games party). ;)

    HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO TURBO!! Welcome to the Tweens. ;)

    Love love LOVE all the zoo shots - it really did look like a great time!

    I'm gonna use "Jones' Law" instead of Murphy's Law from here on out. ;)

    Tuesday after a long weekend definitely don't 'feel' right, because I keep thinking it's Monday all day long! :)
