Our Weekend in a Nutshell

Mitchell finished up his school on Thursday so he celebrated with his school friends Thursday by golfing, coming to the house to play poker and heading out for a few drinks.

This was kind of like a long weekend for us in that we both didn't work Friday so we got to spend the day together as a family. It was a pretty relaxed Friday. It was decently nice out so we were able to go for a family walk to the Tim Horton's down the street for some coffees and timbits.  We finished Friday with a movie, Anchorman 2 (which was not nearly as good as we anticipated it to be. In fact, we both fell asleep and didn't watch it all!)

Friday evening I had a call from work saying there were 3 shifts that needed to be filled, night, days and another night the next day. Since I hadn't worked all week and it was OT for me, I opted to go in for Saturday day shift. It turned out to be not bad. We had initially wanted to get out for a bike ride and maybe golfing that day, but good old Southern Alberta pulled though again with snow! April 26th! There was even a snowfall warning of 10-20 cm! Luckily though, we didn't get near that much! After work, I headed to the in-laws house for dinner and we finished our night off again with a movie at home. This time it was much better than Friday night. We watched Wolf of Wall Street. Good movie, but quite long!

Today, Palmer graced us with a sleep in day. I think we all rolled out of bed around 9:15 or so! It was wonderful! We headed downtown for brunch at Ricki's (our favourite breakfast spot!) and it was delicious, as usual. We followed this with a trip to one of our favourite stores, Costco!

Palmer and I both had a nap after shopping, we played outside for a bit, then Mitchell cooked up some delicious meatloaf and baked potatoes. Yum! Palmer cleaned up her plate for supper, which doesn't happen too often! We finished up our evening with a quick family run, all 4 of us.

Now, to get back to reality tomorrow. Mitch starts his new job, I'm back to work, and Palmer is back to the day home.

Hope you all had a great weekend too!
