This past week was all about getting out with the kids and

just enjoying our time together. Course, even like the posts I recently wrote there were some times that my parenting skills weren’t the greatest. I mean I was in the car when someone pulled right in front of us and we screamed at them a curse..not that they heard us but the kids sure did. So, just showing it happens even when you don’t mean it, I did hear that choice word later on by the youngest. (bad mommy)

We decided to finally meet the hubby’s co-workers and went to the company picnic. Course right before going I was walking around the house barefoot and hit a wheel (playpen) right between my 3rd & 4th toe. OUCH! I’m guessing I hit the gone or maybe just the vessel either way it swelled a big blue bump and has changed all types of wonderful colors. I’d deal with the colors if it wouldn’t hurt so much. So this limited what I did at the picnic but yes we still went.

We got to meet the faces I’ve got to know throught the phone which was great. The kids played a ton of games that the work picked out for them. They played a pop the balloon race, toss the water balloon, bounced in the bouncers and played with other kids. I got to see the oldest, he’s 12, interact with older teens. I must admit I loved seeing that, oh and of course the little blonde. hehe.
The girls hung out either playing games or chatting at the swings and slides. On occasion their baby brother joined them and he shows no fear and is very adventurous. All-in-all they had a blast and I relaxed.
Over the weekend we stopped by Hy-Vee where we grabbed some deli meat, juice, bread and some water and hit the park for a picnic lunch. When was the last time you had a lunch in the park? It really is a lot of fun and something I think they’ll have memories from them.
