Mom and boys will play!
This weekend, Emily and David were in sunny Orlando for another volleyball tournament.The boys and I had a nice weekend at home.
I knew this weekend was coming and I wanted to do something fun....not just cleaning and blogging while the boys played video games or ran around outside.
So...I got busy with my planning.
Of course, everything is better with a friend, so we added 1 more boy to the mix (his sister had a tournament too) and we got started.
Friday night, we headed out for some Chinese food at a fancy Chinese restaurant. The boys love Chinese take-out so I thought they would enjoy the experience. It was lovely....or cool... I should say!
We had spring rolls, fried rice, Seseme Chicken, Mongolian Beef, Chinese strawberry ice cream and even an edible flower. We must not forget the fortune cookies.
Saturday morning...we were up early and off to Dunkin Donuts. What a great way to start the day!
After lunch, we headed to a surprise destination. They were guessing all types of things.....skating, bowling, swimming, mountains, circus, swimming again, bowling again, volleyball tournament (Uh...No) and so on.
We pulled up to a huge parking lot...and jumped on the Light Rail heading into uptown.
They were not sure what to think until we got inside and climbed aboard some of the most fabulous boats.
"Wow! This is awesome. I love this place!"
Over and over again they said "This one is way better than that one....Look...a bathroom....and another flat screen tv...No way!"
After checking out the big boats one more time, we headed back to the light rail and made our way home....after a quick stop by McDonald's for snacks.
Saturday night and Sunday were spent at home....tv, video games, playing outside, laundry and cleaning. That was okay because we had already had our Boys weekend adventure!
