There were a bunch of family-kid oriented events going on in our neighborhood over the weekend. I think there was some “family” theme going on. On Friday night there was a classical concert that Daniel and I were going to go to but then we decided we’d rather spend the evening snuggling by the fireplace having put the kids to bed early. So on Saturday, we decided to do something as a family, rather than staying under the covers and reading the weekend papers which I always find so tempting. We went to Westmoreland Park playground where they had a Kidical Mass Ride which Jayden enjoyed a lot. There was a guided tour too which was fun; we ended up at Oaks Park Roller Rink and I actually skated for the first time in about 25 years! Ethan thought that was pretty amusing! I wasn’t that bad, but, truthfully, I wasn’t that good either.
Saturday night we got a babysitter and Daniel and I went to the Hawthorne Hophouse to listen to Bitter Root which was a band I’ve never heard that combines funk, blues, rock and soul. Not quite my thing but it was fun being out with Daniel without the kids who of course absolutely loved rocking out to the music.
So, that was our weekend. It was nice. I had a good time. It was the perfect balance of resting, being with kids and reconnecting with the hubby. What could be better? Now there’s just the laundry to get through.
