Keeping up with...Family (Weekly Wrap 6/30 - 7/6 - Part 1)

Friday (6/30) We woke up to a cloudy day and the boys did not feel like doing much of anything.  We were supposed to head to the Easton splash pads but with a good chance of rain we decided to postpone that trip.  We spent the day relaxing around the house, watching TV, playing video games and doing laundry.  We ran out in the afternoon to use up the rest of our free rentals from Family Video and got 3 video games and a movie.  We got real lazy once Adrian got home and decided not to even cook dinner, just to order Jets pizza.

Adrian and the boys did decide to go out to try to find a local geocache.  They got about 10 minutes away from the house and right where the cache is supposed to be and it started downpouring on them!  They ran most of the way home and showed up in the garage looking like drowned rats.  I thought it was pretty funny, they did not.  After our pizza for dinner, we played a few board games then had family movie night to watch our free movie "Monster Trucks."  It was an OK movie, better than what I was expecting.  The boys all really liked it too.

Saturday (7/1) was a work day for us.  We did a bunch of stuff around the house to get caught up on things that we haven't kept up on the past few weeks.  Plus we have things we do monthly so it was time for all of that.  Adrian and I went into beast mode and got just about everything done so now we can enjoy the rest of the weekend with the boys.  The boys helped us do some of the things around the house and spent the rest of the day playing together or playing video games.  It was a super productive day!

We finished the night with our first fireworks of the weekend.  We went to watch the Pataskala fireworks.  We went to park on the same street that we watched them on last year.  I had told my friend Erin about the spot and as we were deciding where to stop, I saw her and her family so we parked right near them.  They have 3 boys as well so the 6 boys had fun running around, playing with sparklers and then watching the fireworks.  There seemed to be less than last year, but we all enjoyed the show!!  We came home and put the boys to bed and Adrian and I binge watched and caught up on "Younger."  It was really good and we couldn't stop watching!


Sunday (7/2)  We slept in a little then took our time to get ready for the second service of church this morning.  We have a new senior pastor and today was his first sermon so we were really excited to hear him speak.  He did not disappoint!!  I enjoyed his style and felt like I learned a lot from this first sermon.  I'm looking forward to seeing the changes and growth in our church under this new leadership.  If you aren't already connected to a church, we'd love to have you come visit, just let me know!

We got home and had leftover Jets pizza for lunch before Adrian headed out to do some shopping at the local game store.  He got a great deal on two games he has been wanting so it was worth the trip for him.  Then we loaded up and headed to the movie theater to see "Despicable Me 3."  Everyone was super excited to see it!  But that didn't last long.  Zak got bored about halfway thru the movie and he and Adrian ended up leaving the theater.  The rest of us stayed until the end, but AJ and I missed most of the climax due to a bathroom emergency.  Daniel loved the whole movie and the rest of us loved what we saw of it.  We'll rent it and watch it again so we can see the whole thing.
Since we ate three huge tubs of popcorn during the movie, we weren't hungry for dinner.  We picked on some appetizers and then settled in for a quiet night at home.  We played a game called Splendor and tried to watch fireworks from our yard but couldn't really see them that well.  Daniel was complaining he had a stomach ache (probably from all of the popcorn!) so he fell asleep on the couch.  It was a nice relaxing family night at home.
