Relaxing weekend

More or less.

My lovely wife and I took a nap on Saturday. It was glorious, almost as good as if we “took a nap”. It was well deserved after getting up early to take the girly girls to their swim meet. Our little 5yo Booba had been practicing but was too uptight to swim in a meet, until yesterday. I have some good pictures, but I brought the wrong camera to work today to be able to post them (bad daddy).

8yo Princess Drama Queen won her heat in the backstroke!! And won several other ribbons for placing. She was also on the relay team.

H and I hung out and chatted up all the other adults we knew there, and as a bonus I had my hair spiked up in a faux-hawk to simulate the Marlins fin. The kids thought it was pretty cool. (no pictures of that though).

Sunday was nice, went to church, came home with one extra kid for a play date, power washed the side of the house that gets little in the way of sun (and therefore has green stuff growing). Since I had the power washer out I washed and waxed my car with “help” from Booba, which was followed by the promised bike around the neighborhood.

Since my opportunities to go to the gym were nil because of scheduling or sabotaged by naps, I went Sunday before dinner. Holy cow is the gym a quiet place on a Sunday evening when it is nice out, I really enjoyed being able to go from machine to machine without having to wait.

How was your weekend?

    Congrats to PDQ!! Winning is awesome!

    The weather has been so nice here. Amazingly nice. I just couldn’t justify staying inside this weekend. I’m sure we’re gonna pay for this in August though. haha

    Almost as nice as “taking a nap.” LOL, is this every parent’s code word for afternoon delight? (Remember that song?)

    You guys had what sounds like a perfect family weekend. Next time get a picture of that faux-hawk! We wanna see! :)

    I forgot on both Friday evening AND Sunday evening to go hear a friend’s jazz band (with him singing lead). Too much other activity (I hosted a women’s breakfast on Saturday morning and I’m trying to pack us for our vacation) to remember fun things like outdoor concerts on the lawn.

    Enjoy those naps while you can…..when you have teenagers in the house they do not fall for that.
    They look at you & go “EWWWWWWWWW”.

    Actually we used to say we were going to change our socks! We used to Afternoon Delight all the time as kids, I remember the first time I heard it at an adult and was seriously shocked to learn what they were actually talking about!
