(hehe I took the name from Saturday Night Live)
Yesterday, we woke up to rain. Kinda dampened our plans to go to the "Art in the Park" in Plymouth, so we opted to take the kids to Great Lakes Crossings. We were thinking this would be a good idea. Turned out to be a disaster. One of our 3 children decided to be in a cranky mood and totally ruin the whole experience for the other 2 children and us. So we decided to just leave and go home.
After we got home, I ended up going out to find a video game and then surprised Kevin by stopping by the fish store and getting him a new coral for his tank.
We ended up just hanging around the house and playing video games.
This morning, Kevin surprised me. He woke up in time to go to church and then when it came for me to get ready and I asked him "Do you wanna go?" he said...YES!
So we went to ROC in Northville today. We had been there before. And we liked it. So today, was like a confirmation on what church to attend. We have decided to attend ROC on a regular basis. It has taken quite a bit of time for us to really accept this church, but we really do feel it will fit all our needs. Like, some of the things that would make me not want to attend has changed since our last visit! So, there ya go! It is not like we are going to jump into membership or helping out yet. We have just found a church that might work!

I am just loving them!
We have been having a relaxing week.....something long overdue.
Most of our summer has involved parties and on the go activities. It is nice to have the rest of the summer off!!! Not that having a busy schedule isn't nice, it is! But when you can just sit around the house and get the housework done first thing in the morning and then have the rest of the day to relax and play games with the kids......that is the summer days I love the most!
So far today....we have been playing outside in our pop up pool, playing some Zelda on the Wii, and watching movies!!!!
Our upcoming weekend is the last weekend for Kevin this summer. He is starting to work on his license for plumbing which requires a class he needs to take....so every Saturday through September, he will be busy at this class or working. We are hoping he will be able to get Sunday's off work throughout this, but that is a possibility that he will be working on Sundays to cover his Saturdays not at work because he will be at school. Either way....he won't be home. :(
But, he will have weekdays off....and in those, we plan on going places with the kids. One is to take the boys to Cedar Point again. We are wanting to make a habit of going each year with the kids. I loved going when I was a kid.
Even though Kevin is on call tonight I am hoping he gets home within a decent time to play our game tonight. Yes, it is a kid game, but we love it. Kirby Air ride! I like to bust up his machine!!!! Then he gets all mad at me hehe....... It is FUN!

The broken bone club that is!
Here is the story.
This afternoon, I was trying to get ahead of the game and get some laundry done so tomorrow would not be too hectic. So I was walking out of my bedroom after folding some laundry to see Matthew hanging from a drawer in the kitchen. It took me by surprise that I was not paying attention to where I was walking and walked right into the high chair and stubbed my toes.
This hurt more than I can explain...almost like I had ALOT of glass stuck into my middle toe. I fell to the floor screaming for mercy......Kevin walks in to help and then could not contain his laughter.....I broke my toe by walking into a high chair.....WAS NOT FUNNY! But now.....It is funny!
I BROKE MY TOE!!!!!!!!!
And it hurts!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
