I thought today would be pretty laid-back but not so much.
This morning we were up a little early and visited with Dani & Dave at their church. It was good to be at church with them again. It’s been several years now since that and I miss it.
After lunch at IL’s we went with Jake and Jill to see Night at the Museum. While it doesn’t stack up to the first one, it was a decent movie. I can’t recommend that you race out to the theater to see it but I don’t think you’ll regret it either if you decide to venture on your Memorial Day. I enjoyed some new things..Amelia Earhardt, Seth Rogan, and the Egyptian prince…while I also enjoyed seeing some things from the first movie…the cowboy, Dumb-Dumb, the monkey, the dinosaur and of course Larry. The best part of the movie is when Lexi says Daddy, when are they show the monkey doing this? and then proceeds to slap herself in the face. Scott and I had a good chuckle over that. Oh and just to forewarn anyone with small children, Lexi was screaming for us to get her out of there when the Egyptian dude raised his army from the underworld. She calmed down pretty quickly but it’s definitely a cover your eyes moment for the little ones.
After the movie we went to church where the youth played volleyball. My old high school volleyball habits kicked in and I went for a few balls on the hard floor obviously without knee pads and I have a pretty big knot and bruise on my knees. My thumb is also swollen where I served it a few times. I never did learn how to serve overhand very strong. But it was a lot of fun.
In other random news, I noticed some of my favorite flowers came out. I can’t until they all bloom.
And I did well on my CVS trip I made after church. Only spent .64 on fingernail polish, tampons, toothpaste and two packages of Hello Kitty band-aids. Oh and a piece of caramel candy. I picked a new shade of Revlon nail polish. It’s called Tropical Temptation. Very nice for summer. Feet sensitive people, this is a cover your eyes moment.
This evening I’ve spent uploading pictures from our ropes course event yesterday. And I guess since I’m on a pictures kick, here are a few of me.
This is the one I fell on.
Look, Mom, no hands!
Very proud of myself!
