Playing catch up and the Zoo.

Last week I played catch up with all my housework and things were looking good until I hit the weekend. What is it about the weekend that throws off a great routine?

Anyway, due to playing catch up with my housework I didn't read many blogs all week. As a result I didn't have any links for you Sunday. Sorry about that. Hopefully this week will be better.

Sunday was a gorgeous day here! About 50 degrees, which after being in the 30s for weeks felt like spring! So we packed up the kids after church and visited the zoo.

One highlight of our trip was listening to a docent talk about the giraffes! Unfortunately the daddy giraffe was having "romantic" ideas and the docent felt the need to explain what was happening. That was a little more education than we wanted!

After the zoo we used a gift card for supper at Olive Garden. {sigh} They just aren't as good as they used to be. I ate a meal similar to Penne Rustica from Macaroni Grill. Similar but not as good. The boys complained that their pizza "tasted like spaghetti sauce." Throw in less than stellar service and we won't be going back unless we have a gift card.

That's my weekend in a nutshell.

What about you? Do anything exciting?

It was beautiful around here too. It's in the 60's today but a little rainy.

The house looked good until about Saturday night and it went to pot....I've got to work on it today!

Glad you had a good weekend!

Stephanie...I always try to leave my Mondays and my Fridays open. I need Fridays to prepare for the weekend, and Mondays to recover from them!

How fun to visit the zoo! We may hit 50 tomorrow, after being in the 30s for a while. Our weekend included basketball, China Buffet, and Culver's with friends.

wherever HE leads we'll go said...

After 8 days handling things on my own here, I was excited to spend Friday night with Mike. He talked and talked and talked about his trip - I think he used up a whole year's worth of words!

Then on Saturday, I went out for about 3 myself! I did a bit of shopping and really just enjoyed some time alone. It was nice.

And today I had to return to work - what a drag! I was not happy about that. I would much rather spend my day with Emily!

Yeah, weekends are tough on our house, too! We enjoyed a slower weekend--Saturday was a pj day! :)

What, no shopping yesterday? I must say, a day at the zoo with the family sounds great! :)

I think the Giraffe is one of the most interesting animals ever created!
