Hope You Had a Lovely Weekend

Holy cow, it is March already.  Time most certainly does fly while you are having fun. I'm glad that the hardest months of winter is nearly over, and the spring is just around the corner! We are all itching for a warmer weather. I am looking forward to being able to go on long walks with Turkey, and Forrest. I look forward to being able to hang the cloth diapers on the clothsline, and bask under a warm summer sun. Grilled dinners, day trips to the beach, being able to going outside without layering up, making iced tea all summer long, weddings to attend, pushing Forrest on his little tricycle outside, and just being able to be OUTSIDE. What are you looking forward to?

This past weekend was crazy busy for us, yet it was so much fun. Forrest's grandma, B, and cousins came over to spend the night at our house. They arrived rather late in the night, and Forrest was already fast asleep. Once the morning rolled around, he saw his cousins prancing around, and he was totally surprised! He spent the entire day just playing, playing, and playing. That kid had a blast, I tell you. Then on Saturday, we met up with rest of our family in Wisconsin Dells, and spent the whole day in the water park. Forrest was wide-awake the whole day, didn't want to nap, because he was having so much fun, and did not want to miss out on anything. After we went out to eat dinner, Forrest crashed on the way home, and slept soundly. I worried a bit whether he was able to go to bed when we got home, but it was for naught. Forrest woke up briefly to get dressed for bed, and went back to sleep! 

On Sunday, we had a very lazy day, and lounged around for the most part of the day. We watched ESPN 30 for 30 documentaries about athletes. It was a perfect marriage of autobiography, and sport. It was awesome to find something that included both that Stu, and I were interested in (I'm not a big sports person, and Stu isn't big into autobiographies). So that worked out nicely. We watched documentaries about Marion Jones, Tim Richmond, who was living with HIV, and raced car in Nascar, a documentary about track athletes that used doping to enhance their performance, and how Olympics came down on those athletes, and Renee Richards, a transgendered woman who played tennis. It was really good watch, and I recommend ESPN 30 for 30 documentaries. Then I grilled venison chops to go with mashed potatoes, and corn for supper. Yummy. I enjoyed spending time with my boys yesterday. 

We have yet another fun-filled weekend coming up with Forrest's Grandpa Dave, and Grandma Jess visiting us! Forrest sure is loved by many. 

It is back to the grind today with Stu going back to work, and me doing a monster laundry, then running errands. It will be so much easier to do errands if it's not -15 outside!! 

Anyway, I hope you had a lovely weekend.
