Back To It
I didn't work on Monday or Tuesday. I've got plenty to keep me busy now that I'm back so this will have to be short and sweet. There are pictures, but I haven't had time to edit them. I promise to share a few when I'm done. No, really. I promise!
Friday - We had dinner with my husband's parents and niece on Friday night for my father-in-law's birthday. We had BBQ Chicken Nachos. I had seconds.
Saturday - The Hero was at the fire station. The kids and I picked up a few necessities at Target. We also picked up the first Transformers movie on DVD for $10. We stayed indoors, watched Transformers at least 2 or 3 times and pretty much stayed in front of the tv all day. There was a SpongeBob SquarePants marathon on from Friday night until Sunday night. Nickelodeon, you can lay off the SpongeBob for a while. I recorded enough episodes to last us a few months.
Sunday - I took Little Man to the Pink Palace. My main reason for going was the dinosaur exhibit. I knew Little Man would love it. I was right. He was impressed. I was not. I had a free pass so I'll keep the complaining to a minimum. We also watched an IMAX film called Under the Sea. I bought Little Man some dinosaur rain boots in the gift shop. He loves them more than the trip itself. They were worth every overpriced penny. He hasn't taken them off since.
Monday - My mom and I spent the day with Little Man. We went to the zoo bright and early. We walked all over the zoo and saw as many animals as we could. Little Man's favorite is always the small indoor aquarium. He loves fish. After the zoo, we grabbed lunch at El Chico. After filling our bellies with delicious Mexican food, we hit up the Children's Museum. It was amazing. Little Man ran around and played for hours. They had a grocery store for little people, a disco room, a police car, a fire truck, a construction site, a reading room, an area for dress up, as well as many other games and activities for kids. He had so much fun. We'll definitely be going back.
Tuesday - My mom and I had lunch at Chili's and saw The Hangover. It was hilarious. I laughed until I cried several times. My poor mother snorted really loudly when all was quiet. I can't remember which part she was laughing at, but I nearly peed my pants laughing at her. Last night, my mom watched the kids so The Hero and I could see the new Harry Potter movie. I jumped on the Potter bandwagon late. I didn't start reading the books until the last one came out. I eventually read them all and caught up on the movies at home. This was our first time seeing one of them in the theatre. We loved it.
They showed the New Moon trailer before the Harry Potter movie. I squealed and squeezed The Hero's arm. I didn't feel so bad once I realized the girl in front of me was doing the exact same thing to her man. There were also a few yells coming from the front of the theatre.
Ladies, what did we do before vampires?
