10-4 Tuesday--Weekend at Maga's

We were lucky to spend the weekend with my parents so here is the recap of all the fun we had!

1- Friday night we left IF late because Ryan caught someone stealing his equipment from his classroom. He had a feeling it was happening, and he just so happened to catch this person RED HANDED with one of the missing items. So instead of leaving after school, he was busting a student. But we left eventually, Ashley met us and we were not late for the dance concert.

2- Molly is a director of a modern dance company called I MOVE at ISU and they had their spring concert Friday night that we were lucky enough to attend. It was not kid friendly, so Ashley took all 4 of my children so we could go. Lets just say that it was not what Ryan expected.

3- We tried to go get ice cream with our friends after the concert, but both places we went to were closed. BUMMER. Tastee Treat is our favorite and we missed out. Ryan was looking forward to the Space Burger. Maybe next time.

4- On Saturday Papa made Mickey Mouse Pancakes for Breakfast. My kids were in heaven.  Sam was there with her kids so we hung out with them until they had to leave.

"Twin" Cousins.  Clark and Avery are only 5 days apart.

There is a drawer full of funny glasses to play with.

5-  I was able to take a much needed and uninterrupted nap for almost 3 hours in the afternoon.  I missed out on the Rhino fun, but the nap was well worth it!

6-  While I slumbered peacefully, the kids went out for sledding behind the Rhino.  Here are a few pics from the fun!

7-  Saturday evening we attended the wedding reception of a family friend.  He has been Carson's best buddy since they were little.  The fun part was seeing lots of friends we  had not seen in a very long time.  Liam got to go with us because Molly had one more performance. There were fish on the tables and we almost spilled them 3 times.  The reception was packed, the line was super long, we left after 15 minutes and went to Taco Bell.

8-  Sunday was another lazy morning, especially since church was not until 12:30.  In my opinion that is a little too late for me.  I like it at 11, how we have it now.  The speakers were from the high council, and again both family friends I had not seen in a while.  The best part about growing up in one place your whole life is going back to visit and  knowing lots of people.  When Ry and I were first married, we were in the same stake as my parents so it is a very familiar area with lots of friends around.

9-  Church seemed to have an underlying theme full of self reliance and food storage.  We have been making a real effort to build up our storage and to get out of debt.  I feel like we have made some great progress and as I listened to the speakers, I had a good "yea we are doing this" kind of feeling rather than the dread of "wow we really need to work on that" like I usually get.  It was nice.

10-  We enjoyed a delicious spaghetti dinner with the parents and Ashley's family after church.  It was all in all a very relaxing and laid back weekend.  We had not been to visit since New Years so it was good to spend some time with my mom and dad without the interruptions of lots of other people or a holiday celebration.  I think we were all happy we went and had lots of fun.  Of course everyone was sad when we had to leave, but we are back to school and the ever looming yearbook deadline!  (24 pages left!)

Nice list, lovely visit... I shockingly mostly liked the "yea we are doing this" part of your weekend. That is ALWAYS a good feeling. I'm not quite there yet, but I'm getting there! :)
