Weekend Wrapped Up

     Well that’s the end of this weekend. I don’t know if I should be thankful or if I should be irritated that it just wasn’t long enough.

     Like I had stated in an earlier post this weekend, I took the kids to a community gathering put on by the DNR, and various other hunting associations and local police agencies. It was fun. They got to shoot bows and arrows, shotguns, and had a chance to cast fishing lines off a boat into a field. It was a chance to do these things if some kids never got to before. My kids seemed to like it.

     Then after that we headed to my wife’s friend’s mom’s house for some pool swimming and playing around to cool off from this heat. Unfortunately the mom wasn’t home, house was all locked up, and power was off from the previous night’s storms. That was all ok thought. We all had a good time. Especially in the pool! It was cool and refreshing.

     Later we all came back to our house and got some pizza, drank a few beers and played with the kids. It was tiring, but we all had a blast.

     Today was more of running around. Kinda. We went to visit my dad at the nearby campground for some more swimming in the lake, barbeque, and playing a heated game of bocce. That totally ruled! I love that game.

     Then the storms rolled in. Very quickly! We hurried up and packed everything in and took off to the campground store for cover since the tornado sirens were roaring and the rangers were all in a panic.

     After sitting in that store for fifteen minutes we left and continued or day. We ate, said our goodbyes and came home.

     After two days of fun in the sun, we are totally fried, tired and now winding down. Luckily the kids are done with school and they can chill out tomorrow from this weekend’s activities. But as for me and my wife, it’s back to the grind.

     So like I was saying, I don’t know I should be thankful the weekend is over of if I wish it kept going. NAH!!! I wish it kept going.


The Weekend

     The week may be over, but the constant activity is never ending. I have my girls this weekend, and with it being the end of school, they are constantly wanting to keep on moving.

     I am taking them and my stepson to a place where they will all be able to shoot guns, bows and arrows, get free food and have a good time. It’s sponsored by the DNR for awareness and safety and allowing the kids to use these types of thnigs in a controlled environment.

     After this we are going to come back to pick up my wife and head over to a friend’s house to swim in the pool. Then we will have a barbeque with them and relax, if I can remember how.

     Tomorrow? Don’t ask. It’s more of the running around. The week may be over, by we don’t just sit around and veg out. Yes there are times where we don’t do anything on the weekends, but the kids don’t particularly care for that. They need constant stimulation. Dad on the other needs a break from time to time.

     But it will still be fun. I enjoy doing these types of things with them. But I don’t like how it tends to speed up the weekends and the next thing you know it’s back to work. But I would rather it be back to work than being the next thing I know is the kids are grown and moved out. That’s the one thing I do not look forward to.
