Packed Weekend

Packed Weekend

It seems as though life has picked up yet again!  I am running around non-stop!  From appointments to paperwork, I don’t think there’s a single moment in the day where I’m not doing something on my To Do List!  Maybe I should write “Get some rest” on that list!

Mike and I took all the kids to the Fair this last weekend!  They all behaved and had a great time!  Rhonin was even daring enough to drag Mike on his first roller coaster!  That’s “first roller coaster” for Mike and for Rhonin!  Jaren was a little more reserved and sat with me and the babies while they went.  They had fun on the Carousel, the racecars, and even the little canoe ride.  I have pictures from all the rides!  They rode some rides for a bit and even played a couple carnival games.  Jaren was really excited about the ballon and dart game so we had to give it a try.  The carnival guy gave us three darts, so a good compromise was for each of us to throw a dart.  Jaren concentrated so very hard, but ended up missing.  I popped a balloon with mine, and tried to give Rhonin some instructions on how to hold the dart.  He totally ignored me and just tossed it haphazardly at the wall of balloons.  It hit the bottom board and bounced up, popping a balloon as it went.  Jaren was rather surprised at his luck!  The carnival guy was very nice and gave us two small prizes instead of the one medium prize.  So both boys walked away with green fuzzy dice!  After that, the boys had a blast at the Pirate Play Area for the younger kids.  They even stuck around for the ventriloquist’s show, where Jaren was able to get up on stage and help out!

After that fun-filled part of the day, we somehow wrangled the two bags of energy into the car for a trip to Nana’s house.  Auntie Ali was quite happy about this!  We quasi-celebrated Jaren’s birthday all over again since Auntie Ali was away in Florida for the first celebration!  She made him a blue cake!  (Very tasty!)

My father even came out and mets the twins!  He said they were quite cute, and really, I have to agree!  (They turned 8 months old on Sunday, too.)  It was great to see him again.  I don’t get to see him very often, unfortunately.

Anyway, seeing all the cross stitch exhibits at the Fair really motivated me to get mine done.  My mother and I calculated that if I work on it at the pace I have been, it’ll take me about 4 years to finish.  If I manage to work on it daily, it’ll take me 2 years.  I am really hoping I can keep my motivation up!  My piece would blow the judges away for the Fair!  I think mine would be nicer than all of the other projects that were submitted this year.  The winners this year were nice, but mine is going to be much better!  It’ll be incredible… when it’s finished.  Now I just have to finish it…  I’ll keep you all posted on it’s progress!  Til next time… Cheers!
