It's a Sunday night again and here is a recap of our weekend.
On Friday, Courtney dropped the girls off on her way to Bloomington to have a sister weekend with Alissa.
We took the girls and my mom to the play at St. John's, The Emperor's New Clothes." It was very well done as all St. John's plays are and the girls especially enjoyed seeing the king in his underwear.
After some cookies and lemonade, we came home and watched Ramona and Beezus together. It was a fun night.
On Saturday we took the girls to Monkey Joe's in Appleton.
The first hour was good, the girls were able to enjoy all the inflatables, but after lunch the crowds increased and it was almost impossible for Soli to enjoy any of the things. Even the three year old and under area had big kids in it.
Tiz had made a new friend and she was having fun.
As we were preparing to leave, both girls wanted a slushie.
Soli wanted a red one (cherry) and Tiz ordered a blue one. Well, how were we to know that the cherry was white cherry, no red dye and therefore, no red color. Soli was not happy with a white slushie especially when her sister had a bright blue one.
Without going into too many details here, this white slushie situation led to a major meltdown. We realized that Soli had hit the end of her rope, not only could she not get into the inflatables without a fight, but now her slushie was white.
We let her have her meltdown. I had no one to impress and then she settled down and proceeded to drink her whole slushie.
Other than that meltdown, we did have a good time.
On the way back to take the girls home to Paul in Oshkosh, we stopped at a park and even though it was cold and windy, we all enjoyed some time in the park. Soli enjoyed some swinging which always makes things better for her.
After dropping them off, John and I headed back to Watertown and decided to stop at On the Rock for a few beers and pizza.
It was a much needed end to our day.
The Bucks were playing in a play off game and we were able to watch them win that game while enjoying our dinner. It was a good night.
After church on Sunday, we decided to take a bike ride around Lac La Belle. Best made plans have a way of unraveling though. John noticed that his back tire was flat. Our new plan was to take the tire to Wheels and Sprocket in Delafield and then ride from there.
The Lake Country trail was closed in a few areas so we found some alternative routes between Delafield and Oconomowoc.
We rode 16.5 miles and it felt good.
Now it is time to relax and get ready for the week.
John continues to look for work, but we are still staying pretty positive through it all.
