It’s already a distant memory but this past weekend was the Martin Luther King, Jr. holiday. The kids had a doctors appointment the Friday before that so I decided to take that day off and make it a four day weekend.
That whole weekend was a ton of fun. The doctors appointment went great and everyone is growing like they should be. Afterwards we went to the in-laws to hang out and they bought some pizza’s. Saturday was easy going. Sunday we had church and then lunch with my parents.
Lunch with my parents typically ends up at Cracker Barrel which is sometimes good and other times not so good. Luckily this time was good however, our server came out with coffee mugs and no coffee to which I replied, “Something is missing here.” With a big smile of course. She smiles back and says, “We’re serving pretend coffee and pretend food today.” I just chuckled and told her that was ok because I’d be “paying with pretend money and leaving a pretend tip.” Things weren’t so funny after that.
Monday was MLK day and we took it pretty easy. I think Angi went out for a hair cut leaving me with the kids and everything went well. That day was my brother-in-laws birthday and we went out to the Cheesecake Factory despite the cries from my wallet. Luckily, like my dad did for us at Cracker Barrel, Angi’s dad picked up the check. Which I’m sure was huge considering me and Angi both ordered deserts there 🙂
The rest of the week went by in a blur. Angi heads back to work this week so there was quite a bit of sadness that we’ll have to send our precious children off to day care but I’m sure they’ll be in very capable hands.
In parting I leave you with a picture of the kids from their doctors appointment. The second one is James kissing his little sister. They looked so cute together I couldn’t resist snapping a pic!
