When Daddy's away, Mommy and the kids will play!

This weekend Darin is in Chicago for his brother, Evan's, "Bachelor Party". I never went to a weekend long Bachelorette Party, but whatever. I know he is having a great time, even though the Cubbies did lose.

Yesterday was beautiful, so we took advantage of the sun and spent almost the whole day outside. we went to a park with a group of moms and kids from our church. After eating lunch at the park, we came home and the kids played in the sandbox for a while. Then we went to the big sand hill that's just down the path from us and they had a great time climbing, sliding, and building mini versions of the big sand hill. We came home and had ice cream, which brought the neighbor kids out : ) Then all the kids played in the sandbox making mud pies for a couple hours. Needless to say, the kids were pretty tired out and by 7 pm, they were both asleep.

Today was a little cooler and we had some rain. The kids played Spiderman and Spiderdog this morning (Jori was Spiderdog), then they watched a Davey and Goliath DVD that I had picked up at the dollar store. After lunch and some whining, we finally headed out for the big fun--PlayWorld!! This is an indoor play area with inflatable slides, bounce houses, ball pits and more. We were there for THREE hours. I was glad they were having such a great time. After playing, we went to Steak and Shake for dinner and they were both so well behaved. Seriously, I was amazed and SO thankful, because we have been having some struggles the past couple weeks. Then we came home, the kids got clean, we called Darin so he could pray with them, and then it was bed time. Jori has been sleeping for a half hour at least, but Tyson is not giving in. I hope he falls asleep soon because he is plenty tired and we have church tomorrow!

Darin will be getting home sometime tomorrow. He might be staying for another Cubs game, or he might be leaving soon after the rest of the wedding party heads back to MN. If I knew tomorrow would be like the past 2 days, I'd love for him to stay for another game, but we are all very excited to have him home again.
