Our weekend was filled with activity!
On Saturday morning, my husband was supposed to go biking. He woke up feeling sick (he caught the family cold) so he stayed home. I had a morning of activities planned for the kids so I continued with the plan even though my husband was home.
The kids finished their homework for the weekend after breakfast and then we did a craft. The kids painted "monograms" - cardboard letters in the shape of their initials that I picked up when I was at my sewing class on Friday night. The letters looked great but the mess they left me was shocking!
Next, Big Boy and I stuffed an owl pillow he has been working on for a while. He sewed this pillow using a kit and he did a great job! His stitches are even and there are no real errors. My stuffing job did not do this project justice.
Then the kids and I baked a "made up" recipe that I have been wanting to try for a while. Basically it is cinnamon buns with pizza toppings in them....I was thinking the kids could take them to school for lunch. The buns tasted good but they were way too big to bake properly. They got really sloppy and didn't look great. I will keep trying.
We ate pizza buns for lunch and then had a lazy afternoon. We spent part of the afternoon geocaching but we didn't make a find.
On Sunday we went to Discovery Green, an inner city park that I haven't been to before. The playground and water area at this park is amazing! UNfortunately it was way too cold to use the water features. We also had 2 unsuccessful geocache hunts here. We must be the worst geocachers ever!
After Discovery Green we spent the rest of the day on errands and chores.
