The Happenings of Week Nineteen

May 7th

After picking Lexie up from school, we met Jocie and her boys at the library for a playdate.  The kids played for a while and picked out some books, then we headed over to the neighboring park.  Tyler ended up coming home to play with us a bit longer while Jocie went grocery shopping.  After he got picked up, I stocked up my new SUV with all our stuff.  Have I mentioned that I absolutely love that car?!?  I got Aubrey off the bus, got Dylan off the bus, then began our busy after school/homework/dinner routine.  My dad picked up D and Lexie to take them somewhere just as Grant got home.  Grant and I ate dinner, then put Lily to bed early.  It was so nice getting everything done and being able to relax before the kids came home!  They went to bed right away, and Grant and I managed to watch a bit of TV before I fell asleep on the couch.  I am so tired these days!

May 8th

It was a typical Spring Wednesday for us.  Lexie had gymnastics after school, I got Aubrey and Dylan off their buses, we rushed to get homework and dinner done, and Dylan had a baseball game.

May 9th

I picked Jack and Lexie up from school, and we met our friends at Burger King for a playdate.  On the way home, the girls and I stopped at TJ Maxx.  We got Aubrey and Dylan off their buses, had dinner, then we all went to Dylan's baseball game.  Aubrey joined us this time, so Lexie was really excited.  That evening, Aubrey spent the night, because she was going to come to the zoo with us the next morning.

May 10th

The kids had the day off school. I woke them up early to go to the zoo.  It was raining, but we decided to brave it anyway.  We picked up Amber, Audrey, and Jack, and headed to the zoo.  Nobody was there when we arrived, and it only rained for the first 15 minutes!  It turned out to be a beautiful morning, and the kids had a great time at the zoo! When we dropped Amber and the kids off, D decided to stay with them.  The girls and I went to my parent's house for a visit.  That evening, my mom and I went shopping and got stuck in a huge storm.  By the time the car was loaded, we were soaked! We had dinner with my parents, I dropped Aubrey off at home, and the girls and I returned home.  They went to bed, and I did laundry and housework until 1 AM!

Dylan was supposed to have a baseball game, but it was canceled due to rain.  We ended up having a lazy day at home, then going to a friend's house for dinner and the Pens game.

Happy Mother's Day!  I had a wonderful day, and Grant and the kids spoiled me!  We stopped by to visit my mom (and most of my sisters!) that afternoon, then stopped to visit Grant's mom and Nannie.  We came home, Grant cooked dinner and cleaned up, and we put the kids to bed.

It was a typical Monday.  We didn't do much during the day, but that evening, Dylan had a baseball game, so it was our normal evening rush.
