We had a pretty awesome weekend. It goes without saying that it went by way too fast, but still, it was great. I was off on Sunday night, which was even better!
On Friday night, I took my girls out to dinner. We had a blast! Shelbie was being all emo because she was originally planning to go to a movie with friends, but then the friends weren't able to go. But Elayna & I got her out of her bad mood and had her cracking up! It was fun....I'm not sure we're welcome back at Olive Garden though...... ;o)
On Saturday, the girls went to the Gator game. They had a great time. After we picked them up, we went to the mall. Elayna got a new Build-A-Bear, and Shelbie got clothes for one of hers (yes, she's a teenager, and the clothes were a soccer uniform. Coincidentally, her boyfriend is a soccer player. Heh.) Shelbie had a friend spend the night Saturday night.
On Sunday, we took the girls to lunch and ran some errands. Shelbie spent the night with her friend Sunday night, and we let Elayna choose the restaurant for dinner (can you tell I did not cook at ALL this weekend? It was a nice break!) She chose a Mexican place and it was yummy. Tim was at work, so it was just me, John, and Elayna.
Since Tim was off on Monday, I wanted to take the kids somewhere fun. Shelbie stayed with her friend, and Andrew was with his grandma all weekend, but Tim and his girlfriend came with us, and Elayna brought her friend Emma along. We went to Manatee Springs.
At Manatee Springs, they want the alligators to swim with caution! The rest of us can apparently throw caution to the wind and swim with reckless abandon.
I somehow managed to not take any pics of Tim & Jess, but I found a few on my camera anyway. Sneaky teens.
I also got my new freezer ordered on Monday and it will be delivered on Wednesday. It's a small chest freezer, and I absolutely am SO excited to get it! Yes, I'm serious. What can I say? It's the little things!
I hope y'all had a great & long weekend!
