Saturday, October 18, 2014 take a mini break

...from my routine and enjoy having company.

My days off are usually spent cleaning, running errands, returning phone calls, doing paperwork, cooking...

You know all the things I did before I got a j.o.b.  Now I just try to cram all that stuff into my days off.  Don't feel too sorry for me.  I only work three days a week.

I do have a perfect schedule.  Really.

I digress.  Fridays are the days I generally grocery shop, prepare for the weekend, make appetizers, goodies...

Not yesterday though.

Yesterday, I was lucky enough to take a break.

My brother-in-law was visiting and I was lucky enough to get to spend the day with him.  We had coffee, walked the kids to school, then we went to a MOVIE!

We went to see Gone Girl.

If you are wondering this is my review: It is as equally disturbing as a movie as it was as a book.

Creepy.  Unsettling.


What a nice break.  I can't remember the last time I went to a movie, much less in the middle of a week...when I should have been checking things off of my list.

So nice.  And frivolous.

We had such a nice visit with him this weekend.

I am thankful for this time.

On Saturday Abbey had quite a following at her soccer game.

arriving...and already wearing our hoods!
As you can see it was VERY cold.

Fred tried to stay warm early on by playing some hoops with Will.

Even Uncle Jason tried to stay warm for a bit.

The colors of the trees behind them are really beautiful (even if it was really cold out).

The Crow's all bundled up.

I think I mentioned it was cold.  Perhaps I should consider indoor soccer in the future?

While Will was off playing basketball, soccer, and riding on his rip-stick and Abbey was playing in her soccer game...

This is how Isabella and Audrey passed the time.

A picture is worth a thousand words.
Let's just say raising their heart rates isn't really 'their thing'.

Later in the day we enjoyed watching Will play his first basketball game of the season.

He played hard.  He had several great defensive moves and one break-away.  Oh yes.  And we were warm.  I love being warm.  

Thus, I really love basketball.

I think Grandma and Grandpa would agree.

What a nice mini-break from chores and routines.  

I am so glad you made the trip Jason.  

I know Mark and the kids are too.
