Things We Did This Weekend

SIG came over and we watched her 3D ultrasound, SOOO neat, and had tea and 'crumpets'
Scrubbed, cleaned, and elbowed our way up to two hundred and seventy eight dollars doing jobs for my Mom she otherwise would've hired out.
Watched our nephew and included him as one of the "family".
Took the boys for a two hour trek at the local skate park.
Enjoyed, ate, and watched the waiters and waitresses dancing, the pizza maker juggle already spun pizza dough, the stove burst into high flames as alcohol was put on it - all part of a little show they put on - at our favorite local restaurant.
Crawled into bed, exhausted but happy.
Woke up bright and early to the sounds of happily playing 6 and 5 year old boys.
Went and had breakfast at The Buttery. Yum.
Enjoyed dessert at same (yes, it's still breakfast).

to be continued later... got to go pick up my car who just got all spruced up in the shop. Plus, I'm learning from OD : ) .

later..., with a few added ones I'd forgotten up top:

Ran a bunch of errands including looking for a tiny camera that we can tote anywhere. Thinking the Sony PS200 looks good - any recommendations?
Came home and had quiet, restful time.
Went to the beach and played for two hours.
Came home to see Nephew off with Grandma and Grandpa, he was so sad he didn't get to stay with us and go to Oma's.
Went over to Oma's house and kicked back with a movie and a massage chair (full back, lower calves, and body stretch - ahhhhh).
Boys fell asleep in the car with Mommy while Daddy went and got eye drops and ice cream.
Came home utterly exhausted with a full, but very wonderful weekend behind us.
Put the boys in their own beds.
Crawled into ours for a bowl of ice cream and a few episodes of Friends until we fell asleep.

Thanks Robin, it was nice!

Beth, my favorite (out here any way), Dreyer's Homemade Vanilla. None of that weird stuff you can't pronounce in it, just milk, cream, sugar, eggs, salt - you know the stuff that's SUPPOSED to be in ice cream :) .

I try, Adrianne, I really try. It's amazing how DIFFICULT it is to have JUST a family weekend without sharing it with a million and one people. Which is good sometimes but sometimes we really need to be just US. And our nephew, but that was okay, we were just practicing having three kids :D .

You guys are awesome... what a great weekend! The Buttery looks fabulous too- YUM!!

As to a tiny camera, I absolutely adore my Canon Elph. It's so teeny (can fit in my Coach wristlet) and portable. It also takes video!! I love it! One of the best investments I've ever made.

Yeah I agree with gff. I have the Canon Elph and I LOVE it! I think it is the SD200. It is so nice and tiny that i can fit it anywhere, even pockets. It is only 3.2 Megapixles but that is pleasnty for me. When will I ever be blowing up pics bigger than 8x10?? I have been very pleased with it and recommend it, esp to girls!
