What a Whirl Wind....

This past week has been a total whirl wind...  The kids have had the week of for reading week... Not sure why it's called that... They did not crack on book at all.  We started off with a weekend in greatfalls.  It was me and Brads 11th Anniversary. WHAT!  Yep that's right,  He's lasted 11 years,  I'm pretty sure we'll last the long haul,  Probley cause we both have said whoever leaves has to take the kids.... And we both don't want that... so we are stuck together!  Haha I'm kinda kidding (Kinda not).  Hehe.   So we headed off Friday afternoon and Met Mom and Dad down there.  Mom doesn't like to travel much with Dad by herself in case something happens,  So this was a perfect opportunity to meet up with us. 

So Friday we bummed around for a bit,  Swam with the kids then Mom and Dad watched them while Brad and I went out for our anniversary to Cafe' Rio!!  Yea that's right  Nothing but the best for my Baby!  hehe we love cafe' rio and it was a treat not to have to make it myself!  It was Delicious.  Then we shopped around a bit... got Brad some much needed new shorts for the upcoming summer season.  And i got Coconut M & M's and we called it a night.  Saturday we got up and shopped all around and found some good deals and then went back and swam with the kiddies and watched a movie.  Sunday we spent the morning lounging around,  we got late check out so we didn't have to be in a hurry to leave.  We finally got going but couldn't leave till 2ish so we drove around greatfall's and explored.  Kinda exciting and who knew people still have the ginormous Satellite dishes still.... Yes we saw quite a few of them on peoples front lawns... hmmmmm

Monday I decided that i either was going to stay home with the kids for the week and go crazy or go up to Red deer with the kids and No Brad and go crazy... we opted for the road trip.  I'm not sure what possessed me to do it but i did it and we all survived to tell about. 

We had a great time  I got to go to see the Vow, and go to Missy's Zumba Class that she teaches down at only women's fitness,  I got tonnes of Pictures done from the last photo shoot i had, And the kids all had a great time.  When Keegan and Brody are together we never see them!  The girls are a bit more high maintenance but they still did great!  The little boy's loved playing with Scouttie,  Not sure she can say the same but they sure love her.

Thursday we took off first thing in the morning to Beaumont to visit with Lara and the kiddies..  Poor Ella had jumped off the swings the day before and broke her arm at school.  I've got to say I've never seen Ella so Mellow.  Poor little girl!  Paris had fun waiting on her and tiding up.  The boy's loved playing the Jett and his toys and Brody just hung out,  (by then he was so overtired I think all he could do was sit.)  I got to have a good visit with Lara,  and she made us Cookies which lasted all the way to well the turn onto the highway ( 10min max).   We had a quick visit but fun and it was fun to see the kiddies! 

We headed back home Friday (Brody had a hockey game Friday night and Sat.)  So i learned on this trip.....  I can do it by myself,  But i never want to again.  And the boy's where not horrible going to bed and they were not acting up near as much as i thought they would.  So long story short it's totally doable again.  So I'm excited to plan a trip up to Edmonton in the summer and hit WestEd!

On a totally unrelated, but exciting note... Today was B's last Session Hockey game and guess what......

HE GOT A SHUT OUT!  He's pretty excited about it!!  So we've just got playoffs then we are done for another season and our life can resume!

OK so the whole trip I had the camera but i never pulled it out except at Lara's... Oops.
