Such a busy but fun weekend. Emma-Lyn's friend Liana was having a birthday party on Friday evening that we were all invited to so as soon as Marko came home from work we piled in the car and headed over. There were 3 other families there so it was a full house. The kids had a blast running around the farm and playing with all the children while the adults got some good quality time together too. It was a late evening though and we pretty much just threw the kids into bed when we got home and we weren't far behind in falling into bed.
Saturday we woke up late, which was wonderful. We made plans for going
in town for a picnic lunch and to run some errands. I dropped Marko
and the kids off at a park while I headed over to the homeschool book
sale. I didn't think I would be very long but there is just so much to
look at and of course all the other homeschooling moms to talk to. I
got there a little after 11 and didn't make it out till after 1. My
poor family was tired and cold and hungry by the time I got back to the
park. So we piled in the car and went to the mall to have our picnic in
the food court. We ran a few more errands and then headed
home in time for supper. We fed the kids a quick meal and got them in
their pjs for Grammie Peric. Marko and I were headed out for a much
needed date night. We went to the Merchantman and had an awesome time!
I had their Tupelo Street chicken and oh. my. word. It was AMAZING!
Just thinking about it makes me drool! If you ever get the chance to
visit Charlottetown I highly recommend the Merchantman!
was a slow start but we enjoyed our church service. In the afternoon we went for a hike on
one of our favourite trails. It has lots of bridges which you know the
kids love for the mere enjoyment of tossing things over the railing.
Afterwards Marko made us a supper of waffles. Yummy! At one point
Marko needed his keys and remembered giving them to Sean to open the
garage earlier. Unfortunately Sean had left the keys in the garage and
then locked the door. Naturally we thought of my keys--which were in my
purse, which was in the trunk of our locked car. YAY! Thankfully we're
covered by Honda Roadside Assistance, so after a quick call and a short
wait we were back in business. A memorable Mother's Day for sure!
As of yesterday I've begun working on my flowerbeds and my veggie garden.
