Where Did the Weekend Go?

Look out we come!!!

It's Tuesday already. What happened to the weekend? And Monday? Did we take Monday out of the week?

It was another event filled weekend for us. Saturday morning it was up early (earlier than a school day), and off to our annual Cub Scout Family Fest. Well, 3 of us went to Family Fest. And the funny thing was, it was me, and the girls, not my Cub Scout. Yes, the girls were scouts for the day.

Family Fest is an event in which each district within our council gathers at a central location to show the public what scouting is all about. Each Pack, Troop and Crew from the Sand Lake district sets up a tent/booth to show or demonstrate something about scouting. There were lots of cool things to do. The girls made bird feeders out of plastic bottles, ice cream in a plastic bag, a Cub Scout weather rock, and got their picture taken with Ronald McDonald. And that was just a small segment of the booths.

While the girls were scouting the boys were playing baseball. CJ's Little League team had their first playoff game on Saturday morning. I wanted to go so badly and hated missing the game, but in the end, I guess I didn't miss too much. The Royals ended up loosing. It was not a pretty game, from what I was told. The good news is, there is another game on Wednesday night. Here's hoping they play a better game!

Saturday night we were invited to a bar-b-que, but opted to spend some time with grandma and grandpa instead. Grandma invited us over for some pulled-pork and corn-on-the-cob. We needed a quiet night, and that seemed like the best solution for us.

Sunday the kids and I went to the Disney Hollywood Studios with grandma. We had this trip planned for about the last month. We wanted to go one last time before grandma leaves for the summer. We had all been looking forward to going on "Toy Story Mania," and "The American Idol Experience." We got to do both attractions plus many more. When all was said and done, it was a good day. We got to do all of the things that we had planned on and it was just a nice fun day!

Will next weekend be just as busy? I hope not!
