Non Stop Action
Today we attempted to have a play date with Ava (from school, and her brother Jake) at the zoo...but it was a Zoo at the Zoo! It was a total mob scene -- we thought surely it must be a free day or something, but no, it was just SPRING BREAK. The weather wasn't even that nice today! I was shocked how many people were flocking to the zoo.
So we took a pass on that, and were going to visit a nearby park...but when we got there it was under construction. Yikes! So we went to the swanky mall -- Cherry Creek -- they have the best play area for the kids. And I stopped in the Children's Place and bought Syd an adorable green creeper that says "Future CEO." And somehow we managed to visit Cherry Creek mall WITHOUT Andy stopping in to buy a shirt at the Tommy Bahama store. (I think that's a first...)
Tonight Andy got home from picking up a pizza and we remembered that we had tickets to a circus here in Castle Rock. So we called up Hudson's parents all last-minute, and they were delighted to join us. Sydney's first circus! Naturally, she slept through most of it. Sally had a blast -- she got cotton candy, peanuts and a sno-cone (which she only drank -- she didn't want the ice part, go figure). I suppose that's what happens -- once you get a taste of a New Orleans snowball, you just can't settle for some crappy sno-cone.
IT was a L O N G circus -- from about 7pm until nearly 10pm, so we are all tired and I'm the last to head up to bed.
I wonder what excitement awaits us tomorrow? Ah, the joys of spring break. I think we'll hit the bouncy place tomorrow for some bouncing and crafting....and then a nice long nap! This "break" is wearing me out!
If the weather is warmer than it was today (Saturday was a mess, Sunday was gorgeous, yesterday was nice until sundown, when the wind picked up, today was chilly adn windy) then we may visit a park, since everything is nice and dry and snow-free now.
Sydney adn Mommy are gearing up for our trip to Vegas! Mommy is slowly tackling the laundry...hmmm...might be time to look into a laundry service here in Castle Rock.
Oh! but I do have news -- I hired an Executive Assistant to help me in my business. Last week I worked something like 30 hours and that just won't do. My goal is to keep it around 10 hours per week, so having an assistant will help me maintain pace while cutting down my hours. Hooray!
His name is Mark -- he's a Brit, but he lives in Indiana (go figure). Great guy, I am drawing up contracts now.
And when are you coming to visit us? We haven't had visitors in nearly a month, what's up with that??
