Well, this post finds itself as a 'must' after our weekend. We had absolutely the best weekend, yet probably one of the most exhausting weekends, since we have lived in PA! We started this weekend off on Friday with the boys cutting the grass and then we all got out and did our standard errand running to the bank, the library, and recycling. After those errands were done, we went by Lowes to pick up a piece of pegboard for TinkyTiny's room, came back home and played outside and spent some much needed time together as the three of us watching movies and playing Legos.
Saturday morning started out by sleeping in to near 8:00, a little bit of breakfast and then we decided to venture out to do something new. We had never been on the riverwalk before and I had always wanted to do that and so we chose to take our bikes out and go for a family ride. What a beautiful day it was and what a great day for a bike ride. We rode the 2.75 miles down to where the walk crosses the river and decided to park on the grass and the boys decided to skip rocks and just hang out on the river for a while. Afterwards, we came home, grabbed some lunch, took a nap, and headed off to church. When church was over, we came home to Jambalaya in the crockpot and ate and crashed early - we were TIRED!
Monday came around and by now, our weekend had already been filled to the brim with fun but we decided to add to it by going fishing with some wonderful friends! Chip had gotten a fishing pole for Easter from Lee and so we went and tried it out. We went to two different places: the Montour Preserve and Trout Pond Park. At the Montour Preserve, the 'big lake' we didn't have such luck catching fish and so we moved to a walking trail where there was a small stream that went through the preserve and hit the motherload! We couldn't do anything ourselves for Chip snagging every little fish in the stream. He was THRILLED!!!!! after we had been at it for a few hours and had a picnic lunch, we headed out to Trout Pond Park where the fishing was a little more difficult but we did manage to come home with a couple of trout to eat. We were headed home from there when we got a phone call from some great friends that they were grilling burgers and did we want to head over. Well, we had no clue what we were going to do for dinner and so it sounded good to us, so off we went to one more stop for the weekend! We ate burgers, laughed about our weekends, had great conversation, and topped it off with Ice Cream for dessert and then came home, showered and crashed.
WHAT A BLAST!!! I hope you had a great Memorial Day weekend and spent it with those you love. I also hope that you took a moment to be silent and to remember those who died so that we could have these kinds of amazing weekends! Blessings to you all!!!
