Whew, what a weekend! It's taken me until Wednesday to recuperate from it :) Not really, but we did do a lot of hard work on Sunday. Friday night we hung out downstairs, playing ping pong and watching National Geographic t.v. Saturday morning, Kaden had to swim the 200 breaststroke at the Junior Olympics early, so we left the house at 5:30 a.m. for that. He was done by 8:30, so he and I and Stoehr and Kohler all arrived back home at the same time (Kohler from swim practice). It was early, but it felt like we had already done enough for half a day! I made a great breakfast of hash browns, eggs, and smoothies, and we spent the morning relaxing.
In the afternoon we headed out to Great Falls for a short hike. I took lots of photos, practicing in manual mode for my photo class. The boys had fun climbing all over the rocks, and Molly (the dog) just loved being out with us. Back at home we made taquitos for dinner and started watching Independence Day. The boys needed to go to bed before we could finish, but Kohler and Stoehr stayed up watching a Chinese movie.
Sunday was all about yard work for Stoehr and I. Kieran helped some too, Kohler worked on his homework, and Kaden went off to a women's NCAA basketball game with his best friend. Stoehr and I got so much done outside. We had a dead bush that we removed, did lots of bush trimming, cleaned out the planting beds, cleaned up vines I trimmed on Friday, and raked the lawn. It looks so much better now, and we're getting ready to put in a garden! After all that work we were happy to relax in the evening, finish the movie from Saturday night, and make taco pizza for dinner.
