Weekend Recap

Today's post is going to be a recap of last weekend. The weekend started on Friday with the luau at school for Staff Appreciation Week. Ashlin, Justin and I had great time helping with a game and then wondering around the gym taking pictures and watching the kids all have a great time. Ashlin and Justin especially loved getting candy from the pinatas that were broken. Everyone was supposed to get only one piece, but Justin had a few extras stuffed in his pockets.

Then after school, we stayed loaded in the van and headed north to Bloomfield for Grandpa Leader's annual fish fry. Grandpa Leader is a member of the Knights of Columbus and every year during Lent they have a fish fry. Grandpa works very hard all week getting ready for the big fish fry. We picked up Grandma Leader when we got into town and then headed to the community building because we were all just starving. The fish as always was just delicious. You have a choice of either baked or fried fish (all the fish you can eat), baked potato, baked beans, dinner roll and macaroni salad. Then afterwards we all head back to Grandpa and Grandma's house for dessert. Grandma did not disappoint in the dessert department either. Grandma had apple crisp with ice cream or brownies with chocolate frosting. I had to pass on dessert since I gave up sweets for Lent, but Grandma gave me a banana instead.

On Saturday, the kids went to Grandpa and Grandma Korth's house to play and have a tea party. Keith and I had a free afternoon to do whatever. We headed to the Y for a workout, then grocery shopping and out to dinner at a local Mexican restaurant. Then Keith and I went next door to visit with the neighbors about their vacation to Cancun that they had just returned home from.

Sunday, we went to Mass and then the Music Boosters sponsored a pancake feed at the school. Who doesn't love pancakes and it meant that we didn't have to cook! Then the afternoon was spent with the kids playing Wii Fit Plus that Keith had just purchased.

Sorry I don't have pictures to share today. My camera battery was running low after the luau on Friday afternoon, so I had to recharge it.

Take care,
