Weekend Update

Morning everyone! I hope you all had a fantastic weekend. I sure did!

If you are visiting from Cutesy Bootsie, welcome! I have a fun guest post about our Winter New York trip running over there today. Stop by and check out her super fun blog!

Friday night we went to the pool to celebrate the girls awesome swim session. They all passed the deep water test and had fun jumping off the diving board and going down that water slide. They start their next session today!

Saturday Heidi and I got up early and went to cheer on my friend Erin and her running partner Pat at the 9 mile marker of their half marathon. We parked over at Shannon's house and enjoyed spending time with her. Heidi was thrilled to spend the morning with Aunty Shannon and see Erin run and so was I!

When we got home I took Siri for her first run. I was very please with how it went. Considering I am running and she is just walking fast it worked well for both of us.

Then we met up with some family at a local park for a picnic. My brother and his fiancee, Dawn,  organized it and it was a great time. Dawn's extended family was there as was both my Mom's Sisters and family, my Dad's brothers and sister and family, and my step mom's brother, and my Grandpa. We had such a good time and it was wonderful to see everyone. I brought my camera but got to busy catching up with everyone it never made it out of my bag.

Saturday night was spent in my chair with my dog watching Olympics while Heidi went bowling with her cousins. I needed a night to relax and did not feel guilty about it one bit.

Sunday morning I slept in until about 8 and it was wonderful! I cannot remember the last time I did that. I spent the morning cleaning, going thru the paper, drinking coffee, playing with the dogs (Cupcake is feeling better but still not 100%), and watching the Olympics while Heidi was over at her Grandma's playing with her cousins and Shawn was installing a door on the basement to keep the dogs upstairs.

Siri and I went for another run and went a bit farther this time. Then we met up with Erin and the girls to see Diary Of A Wimpy Kid: Dog Days. Man, was that a funny movie!  We were cracking up, tears rolling, bent over at the waste. And that was just Erin an me! You should have seen the girls!

I love going to movies like that with the kids! There is humor for the adults and humor for the kids. It's fun to see what they think is funny and we all have a good time together.  As we were leaving we were discussing what movies we want to see next and are all looking forward to another movie date. 

Hey, Erin, maybe next time I will not lose the popcorn!

After the movie I made a quick Grocery run then made PW's Pasta Primavera for dinner. Ryan, Jess, and the kids came over and we all hung out until I crawled in bed at 10 pm exhausted.

Now it's Monday and I am starting a new week. Siri and I started our morning with a run and I was able to spend a little time with each cat before I left. Not to mention there is a roast in the crock pot for Pulled Pork Sandwiches for dinner. I am finally feeling back on track.

The trick? Take a weekend off from adopting dogs or hanging at the Swamp!

Happy Monday everyone!

Hugs,
Kara

Love sleeping in! I "slept in" til 7 am this past weekend while my son had a sleepover at my mom's house. It was awesome!

Sounds like a busy weekend. Thanks for linking up!
