Love a Loooong Weekend!

This has been pretty close to a perfect weekend so far, (knock on wood, don't want to mess it up now!)

Friday started off finding out that our pool opening was being pushed back to Saturday due to storm damage, and I was pretty bummed because even if we couldn't swim, was (high only 68 that day!), I was looking forward to getting together to see all our friends.

BUT- the night was saved when my in-laws, (who happen to be the world's greatest!), said they would have the girls spend the night and my husband and I got an unexpected date night!  WOO-HOO!

Dinner at one of my favorite places, shopping, milkshakes, and a movie at home in our jammies...AKA, my perfect night!

On Saturday, we slept in and then picked up the girls from my in-laws and hung around the house for the first part of the afternoon.  THEN, we headed to Kings Island, a local Amusement Park, and spent a great evening with friends. 

The kids have so much fun there, especially when they have buddies that they get to ride the rides with.  AND, Addy even rode her first grown-up roller coaster, (The Racers)!  I was soooo proud of her, even if she did say that she never wanted to do that again :)  We even stayed late and let the kids watch the fireworks at the end of the night and they were exhausted by the time we got home and went right to sleep.

We skipped church this morning because the girls were sleeping in, (and Yes- sleeping until 8:30am IS sleeping in for my girls!), and the husband was able to mow the lawn.  (Okay, not exactly fun times, but with all the rain we've had, it was beginning to look like you could get your hunting gear out and trek through our yard for an adventure!)

This afternoon we are going to do some of the Memorial Day activities I blogged about, and then we are headed to The Heritage Festival. Tomorrow we will finally make it to the pool to hang with friends and I can't wait!

I hope you all are having a GREAT Memorial Day Weekend too, and I would LOVE to hear about some of your Loooong weekend plans!
