Weekend Reflection



Although I've had a somewhat down week, I did have a few good things going my way.

My niece was off for spring break, so I took Scamp down to see her, my nephew, and my sister on Wednesday. We met at McDonald's since our plans to go to the park and wade in the creek had been jaded by the awful cold weather. Our kids in addition to two other friends played in the Play Place and had the best time. My niece dragged Scamp up into the jungle gym since she couldn't go alone. It wore both of them out!

My mom took the day off Thursday, and we went shopping at the mall. We had a nice meal at Applebee's. She always buys our lunch and us both an outfit. I have a great mom!

Friday Beef was off so he watched Scamp while I did a little Easter shopping. Then, he watched her again on Saturday so I could head to Wal Mart alone and out to lunch with my mom again. Beef's dad (Papa) came down and ate dinner with us Friday night and accompanied us to our typical date night site, Hastings, where we watched Scamp scurry through the children's area.

The very sweet Judi nominated me for a Thinking Blogger Award. I'll have to make a post about it this week. Thanks Judi!!

I have two new great books to read, "Chocolate Beach," which Stacy is letting me borrow, and the "Second Summer of the Sisterhood." "Chocolate Beach" is first, and I'm really enjoying it so far.

We had a great Easter, attending breakfast, Sunday morning service, and an egg hunt at Beef's parent's church. Then, we headed to my grandmother's for lunch and down the road to my great-grandmother's for a 2nd hunt. It's Scamp's first year pick up eggs by herself.

I bet you enjoyed watching Scamp hunt for eggs! It is so fun to see everything through the eyes of a child (especially your own). Have a great week!

I'm glad your week ended on a good note. Sounds like you had a nice Easter. :o)

You're right! What a sweet Mom you have. You're blessed! Enjoy that new outfit!

You do have a great mom. It sounds like you had a pretty good week with family! Our Easter is always full of family visits too. I hope you have a great week this week!

Wow, that all sounds pretty awesome to me! What a great mom you have! Even when my mom was alive, she didn't get out much and we didn't do the "lunch and shopping" thing, so that sounds really great to me.

Hope you enjoy both of those books, be sure to let us know what you think when you've finished :)

Hope this upcoming week is just terrific for you, Beef and Scamp! And your mom too, LOL!
