A February Weekend with Team T

Blake had a conference this weekend so Brother, LB and I were on our own for a couple days. We missed him terribly but we managed to pack a lot of fun into our days. Friday night we tried a new pizza place with my sis and her family. YUM. The pizza was great - and we got to sit at a big round booth which is always good for the kids. The service? Well, I guess they're still learning. It was great to hang out but my sister works a real job where she has to get dressed and show up some place every day Monday thru Friday - so by Friday night, she was kind of a drag understandably tired and the night was short and sweet.

Saturday (see - I'm going to do one of those blog posts where I list the mundane activities of our whole weekend) we went to see "Pedro y el Lobo" (Peter and the Wolf for you non-Spanish speakers). It was the symphony with narration and puppets - all in Spanish. There is a lot of good stuff I could say about this performance. The fact that Little Bitty fell asleep on my lap and then peed all over herself and me - is not one of the good things. The fact that this happened less than half-way through isn't good either. We were about to leave due to the fact that I was bored out of my freakin' mind all wet, but then the puppets came out and Brother wanted to stick it out to watch that part. So we did. By the end I felt so proud that we had stayed for the whole thing that I wanted to dance and sing that Dora song, "We did it, du du du du du du du du du, Lo hicimos...."! If you haven't inferred by the description above - apparently I am not a lover of the symphony. I DO love the idea of it. Kind of like going to museums. Anyway - all in all a great experience for Brother and we saw a lot of friends, yada yada yada.

After Pedro, we went to Alabama to hang with Mum, Papa Bob and Grandma. The kids love going down to their house. We got to walk along the river shore in front of their house and gather nature treasures - the weather was awesome! And my mom has a basket full of maybe 100 beanie babies - so that's always a big hit. They had beanie baby Olympics sliding the different little creatures down the stair banister and throwing them over the upstairs balcony. Good times. The kids love their mum and papa bob - so all was good.

Blake returned around the same time we did - just in time for a Team T hang out session on the couch watching Spy Kids 2.
There you have it. I didn't even touch on the karate class we observed Saturday morning. I'll wait until Brother actually participates to write about that.

Why didn't I realize you were still blogging here? I thought you gave it up for the other.
