This weekend, Don surprised me by taking me to the local park, called "Mount Trashmore". It is a landfill that has been transformed into a giant grass covered park, complete with picnic areas, walking trails, and a skatepark. We took a picnic lunch and sat along the Mount Trashmore lake. We listened to the honking geese and watched as Godiva loved the smell of goose poop. She enjoyed her family fun night as well. The skatepark includes a half-pipe. We sat and watched the major biffing going on and even watched a four or five year old ride his bike up and down it! We took a few moments and threw a softball around. Don thinking back to the days in Colorado Springs where he played shortstop for his church team. Whereas, I was reminicing about the high school days when I played outfield for the JV and Varsity teams. It was a lot of fun!
We then drove over and picked up Godiva's best friend, Cali, who belongs to the Branines. She had a great weekend "catching up" with her friend who she had not seen in a month or so. They played together, slept together, ate together, napped together, went potty together and were pretty much inseperable all weekend long. We are quite certain that she will be in depression mode once Cali's mommy and daddy pick her up later today.
Don is on call this week and we traveled back from Williamsburg (our church plant that we are active in) early this afternoon. We were able to stop by Ruby Tuesday's and eat a yummy lunch with a gift card my students gave me for my birthday (February). Later on tonight we plan on finally getting rid of our brush pile in the backyard and have a little camp fire.
It has been a great, relaxing weekend!
Also, thanks to all the comments we got on the last post. We were shocked and amazed by some of the people that drop in to check up on our lives. We are honored by your visits. Please continue to let us know how you are doing! Also, thanks to so many who mentioned that they are using Google Reader. We had briefly heard of this, but it made us curious and we are now hooked up with our own Google Reader, so that we can keep in better touch with your lives. Thanks again!
