Dane and Knox, along with their cousin Dirk, went to Arkansas to visit with my mom and step-dad for spring break. They LOVE getting the chance to go to grandmas house. Maybe it is the fact that they get to eat unlimited amounts of ice cream ? Not sure ?! HA!
They left on Sunday and came back Thursday. They had a blast! They did so many crafts. Sunday happened to be Dane's birthday and so grandma threw all three of them a "party" to celebrate.
Knox was a little homesick throughout the time there, because he is less used to being away from me than Dane. But he still did good.
As for mom and dad, we miss them like crazy when the house isn't loud, toys aren't scattered everywhere, and people aren't constantly asking you for things. It is fun for like one day, maybe two, and then you just miss your babies.
While the boys were gone we didn't do too much .Derek is approaching his busy season for work and that means he worked late every single night. He did get in a game of disc golf though so he was able to relax a little bit. For me, I shopped, shopped, shopped, and that gets old after a while (GASP!)
Monday I got my nails done.
We went out to dinner on Monday night and other than that we kept it low key. I was having guilt from eating McDonald's on the ride there, Chinese on the way home, and then out to dinner at Houlihans without ordering anything low in calories, so I had to do some damage control to counteract my bad eating habits later in the week.
Wednesday I started feeling sick and came down with a cough/cold. BLAH! I knew we had to get sick one more time before spring/summer. It has spread to each one in the house.
I surprised them on Thursday when we picked them up with Frozen. We have watched it 4x already and I think I know most of the words to the songs. They get stuck in your head! HAHA. Knox is at a phase where he doesn't really want to sit through a whole movie, but Dane really enjoys it.
Saturday although it was cold as could be we headed out to a couple of garage sales. If you have followed this blog for long enough you know that I LIVE for bargains. This winter I have really fallen in love with Online yard sale groups on facebook. They are such a great tool and they are safer than Craigslist in my opinion because you can see the persons name, and in a small community you know wheather or not to do business with that person. You must check and see if you have one in your area!!
Anyway, some people must have canceled their garage sales because they were listed but weren't out. But the two good ones we did go to were worth getting out in the cold! The boys got tons of action figures, Nike shoes for Dane for $4 an converse's for $1, Knox a cars sheet set for $1, and I got BKE's for $2, Ralph Lauren t's and a green cardigan for $3 for all! It is such a high to get a pair of $60 dollar jeans for 2 dollars. Same with the nike shoes, they are like new! I am not looking forward to the day when Dane won't let me buy him used clothes anymore because it isn't cool. HA!
