Well Monday, here we are again.  I have to tell you, I'm not too thrilled you're back.  I really could have used a few more days of weekend!

For a completely unplanned and unscheduled weekend, it turned out pretty well!
Friday night I finally satisfied my Melting Pot craving!  It was sooooo good and I was soooo stuffed!  I was also soooo happy to have a girls night out with my friend Amy!  Between my kids, her kids and our busy schedules, it can be tough to schedule time to hang out. 

Saturday the kids and I spent most of our time watching TV and playing while daddy did his college coursework.  Somehow I even got in an hour nap!  Glorious!  Saturday evening we headed to Dick's to get some soccer gear for Nick.  I can't believe his first practice is this week!  A sure sign that fall is coming...
After dinner we went out to dinner and then grocery shopping.  Riveting, I know!  :) 

Sunday I made a spur of the moment decision to pack up the boys and head out to my parents for the day.  We had a lovely day swimming, relaxing on the deck and spending time with the family.  We also had some delicious Brooks BBQ chicken.  If you live in upstate NY, you have probably heard of Brooks.  They have the most amazing chicken EVER.  It's definitely one of the things I miss from home. 
Headed out to my parents... love those hills!
Brooks BBQ- the best chicken you will ever eat!


When we got home, Nick decided he wanted to play Scientist.  "Mom, scientists wear a coat, a hat, gloves, and goggles to protect their eyes."  True, although I have never seen a scientist in this exact get-up...

"The Scientist"
LOVE their expressions!!

Such a ham!
It was a great weekend and I was sad to see it go!   Hope you all had a great one too!  We only have a few left before summer is over!
