Weekend with the Grands

The weekend was busy, we had the grandkiddos and they spent the night Saturday night.  When they

Cricket surveying her yard. 

come over, we had a plan in place.  We need a plan, things to do for them so they don't sit around and flounder and get bored. 

Target was our first stop, the kids had a budget of $25 each to spend.  We ended up spending about $30 dollars each. It could have been much worse because we tend to give in pretty easily.  The next stop was a comic book store.  I have never been to a comic book store and it was an experience to be sure.  If you watched The Big Bang, well, then you pretty much know. 

 Lots of comic books, interesting sci-fi decor, and a variety of customers similar to the clientele on Big Bang.  We did spend about $30 for everyone to get what they wanted.  Next was dinner.  We ended up at the drive-through at Wendy's.  We tried to go into the dining room, but that was locked. It was a drive-through only.  Ordering for 4 people with different wants at a drive-through is quite an experience.  For the most part, we all got what we wanted. 

Afterward, we headed home and watched the kids play out back with their new Nerf guns.  The weather was perfect, cool with a nice breeze.  We did play games when we came in, the kids got their baths, had a snack, and eventually fell asleep around 10:30.

Sunday, the kids and I went to church and Sunday School, and afterward, I dropped them off at their house and I came home and took a two-hour nap. Dinner was take-out pizza.  We were wiped out lol.

This week we are both home, hubs is off for a week and a half.  Lots of things to get done around here, the list is growing and never ending. Tomorrow, the plumbers are coming to re-pipe the house.  A necessary evil so we can get a better home insurance policy. Honestly, I am not even sure what the policy will cost us, I can only get through one huge event at a time. 


  1. Grand kids do wipe you out, both your wallet and physically, but isn't it great!

  2. That sounds like a fun weekend, albeit exhausting. How old are the grandchildren?
