catch up from the weekend

I had such a relaxing time at my mom's this weekend. It went by really fast. I got to catch up on some sleep too. I went to bed early every night and slept like the dead, for the most part. I got up early Saturday morning and did a 4 mile walk with my step-dad by star light. The sun just started coming up when we got back to the house. Then, spontaneously, mom and I went to Ikea while Fred took the boys bike riding at the park. What fun that place is! I was overwhelmed though. It didn't take long of my being there before I just got a glazed look in my eyes and knew I wasn't really seeing anything anymore. But, I got lots of ideas while I was still able to focus on all the cool stuff and amazing deals!

We got home and ate lunch. Then I cut mom's hair and played a game of Scrabble with Fred. I'm not telling who won... ;)

Max was like a monkey in the back yard climbing my mom's birdhouse on a pole. Look at this stinker... with his orange vampire teeth...

Fred made some awesome hamburgers for dinner that night. He's such a good cook! I'll put in an order for cornbread next time. I've never tasted better than his.

We got up and got ready for church this morning and then I loaded the car and headed back to our house to drop off the boys bikes before going to church. I came home afterward and did some kitchen clean up and have a load of laundry going. Then caught up on e-mail from the weekend.

I did a self-portrait shot and am shocked when I see more wrinkles and loose skin after losing weight. So, there is a down side. Boohoo... I look older now. Bleh....
Now it's time to get kids in bed. Tomorrow, we have a funeral to attend of a friend of ours who passed away this past week of a brain tumor. He was just diagnosed a couple of months ago. It will be a sad day.

I'm sorry you lost your friend; it's always sad to say good-bye. It's good you had a well deserved good week-end.
And I love the photo of Max up the pole.
