Post-Weekend Update


The only problem with weekends is that you typically need another weekend to recover from them!

And we had a relatively easy one!

My parents came up and spent Friday evening with us so that they could go to Ty's soccer game Saturday morning.  My sister shocked us all by getting up early Saturday morning and making it to the 9 am game too!  She took some pictures for us of The Boy and his teammates.

Ty got to be one of the Team Captains this week, which was just perfect since our family was in to see him!  And he jumped right in and took off with the ball, even passing it to one of his teammates to get it down the field (passing has been a myth in the under-8 soccer division at times)

After soccer Ty was stoked to get to go to Magic Springs with one of his best friends from school and soccer.  He also got to stay the night, too, which he had been excited about all week, and still animated about all weekend since!

His friend's older brother won a lot of basketballs at one of the games there at the park and was sweet enough to share them with his little brother's friends (How thoughtful was that!).  All the other little boys swapped their basketballs out for Razorback balls.

Not my kid.  My little lover-of-all-things-orange swapped his out for a Texas ball.

Luckily, when I picked Ty up Sunday morning I made it to the car before Ty did and was able to prepare Jason for the travesty his son unknowingly committed.  ;)

The hilarious part was when we were in the car and Ty looks at the Longhorn symbol on the ball and asks "Is this a beaver or a moose on here?"

Like Jason said, though, it could have been worse.  It could have been purple and gold.

Saturday evening Jason and I did absolutely nothing while we were childless and it was wonderful!  We had eaten lunch with my family that afternoon and overfilled on appetizers so we still had half of our entrees left that we ate for dinner (I've never had a steak from Chili's so it was a pleasant surprise that it was so wonderful!)

We took a nap (after having to get up at 6:30 on our Saturday morning to get Ty to the soccer field early for pictures) and then we spent the rest of the evening just laying around, being bums. 

Sunday we picked Ty up and came home and did some dishes and laundry and the unfun stuff of being an adult and then headed into town to Family Park to let Ty test out his new basketball.  He had another little boy show up wanting to play.  He's in 6th grade and was a good basketball player, so he was calling "walk" all over the place on Ty.  He was really good, though, once we explained it was Ty's first time to play with his new ball.

They ended up playing Jason and Ty versus the boy and his dad, so it was a fun little game and they were kind to let Ty have some time with the ball, too.

And then last night, was a typical Sunday night.  Pizzadillas for supper (easy, quick & good) and we settled in for our Sunday night shows.

Good times, good memories, and a good weekend.

Now, if the weather will cooperate, this week we've got to get some Scotts Turf Builder with PLUS 2 Weed Control on our yard.  If it wasn't for weeds, we wouldn't have anything growing where our grass is supposed to be! 

Here's to hoping it's one of those no-effort required, overnight miracle products like you see on TV!  ;)

I might have to document it just for curiosity's sake in case there are any lawn-care beginners like us that don't know what to do or how often to do it.
