09/18/2006 Entry: "Weekend Wrap Up"
Man, did I have a nice weekend. Friday night, I made some pork chops and roasted potatoes for supper. I don't think we did anything too cool. I think we basically went to bed early to get ready for the fun!
The boys had me up about 6:30 on Saturday. I let Susan sleep in. Once she got up, I started painting the front door. In between coats, I took down the pool, and went to the dump. The boys were ready for their nap quite early; I think they went down before 11am. Once they got up we headed out to a "surprise trip." We went to a farm where they had all kinds of activities: apple picking, a corn maze, a small petting zoo, and a farm stand. We stopped at the farm, caught the hay ride to the orchard, and picked some apples. After riding back, we spent some time with the cows, sheep, and pigs, and did some shopping at the stand. We bought some cider, some little gourds for the kids, and a squash for supper. I roasted the squash, roasted some more potatoes (they were really good, and I improved my recipe on the second night), and had pork chops marinated in soy on the grill.
Sunday, I had to work a little in the morning. At lunch time, I went to Mom's and met up with the rest of the family. We were home by 2pm, I guess. Susan and the boys took a nap, so Julia and I went as washed the Green Hornet at the car wash, and then went down to Snow Marine Park for some bike riding. We had a blast. I went to church that evening, and was home around 8pm. I haven't had a weekend so nice in a long time.
