didn’t find what we were looking for

Those kids actually let us sleep until 9 this morning, yay! It’s a good thing because Chris and I stayed up way late again last night. This time we watched “Blades of Glory” the ice skating parody movie with Will Ferrell. I don’t know why I wanted to see it but I had been waiting for it to come out on DVD since I refused to lower myself by seeing it in public. Other than the unnecessary vomit scene, it was pretty funny. I loved how over the top it was in everything and Will Arnett is always fun to watch.

We had originally planned to go do something out in nature today, but the rain put a stop to that idea. So we looked at letterboxing.org to see if there were any nearby in urban areas. We found one that had 3 boxes and it was in an antiques area so off we went. We had zero luck for the boxes. All three were missing. But the antique shops were very fun. Daisy got bored halfway through the second store and Tabitha’s constant “look at this! look at that!” was a bit much. Chris and I happen to have a day planned together next weekend sans kids so we decided that we’re going back there to look in all the shops then.

After we left, we went to a Mexican restaurant near my in-laws’ house. They returned home today from a trip and we were headed over there to visit. I decided I wanted to walk there and Tabitha wanted to join me. So we had a lovely stroll and talked about all sorts of things. It’s been more than a year, I think, since we last walked together by ourselves. It would be a nice habit to get back into as soon as the evenings are a little lighter and warmer.

After our visit we went home and really didn’t do much of anything. Things were cleaned up and we also sorted through toys for possible donation. We mainly went through Daisy’s stuff and got rid of toys she’s outgrown or has lost interest in. We also went through the one toy box we have that had a mishmash of toys and Chris and I got rid of the junky stuff. Now it really only holds light sticks from every stage show we’ve ever attended :)
