I know I post about the weather a lot, apparently I'm a little obsessed. But lately it's been getting a little warmer, which we all know is like heaven to me. And with daylight savings it gets dark later so I'm just one happy camper. And even better, Jeremy was home all weekend. He works a lot of hours (not a complaint, just a statement) so on weekends I'm a little selfish and like to have him around. But, he's a mover and hates just sitting around. So our solution was to find something we could all do as a family and still be doing something. So we invested in this:
This was only the second time Jeremy's taken it out, and the first time for me and Alexis. It was still a little too cold to take Tyler, I didn't want him to end up with RSV again. But next time we go it should be warm enough for him, and I am soooo excited. Alexis loved it, though she would occasionally say, "stop driving so bumpy!" She hasn't learned the point of it yet.
It was a lot of fun, and we even found an old mine they've gated over. I'm afraid of heights so it terrified me (eventually I did walk out over it), but Jeremy and Alexis would drop rocks down the hole and listen to them drop.
Then later in the evening we ran errands together and had dinner and at the end of the day Alexis said how much she likes having dad around. The kids get a little bored of being around me all day and need some variety. Plus dad's more fun!
The next two weekends we'll be out of town (St. George then Las Vegas), which will be a lot of fun too. Anyone else do anything fun this weekend??
