Vacation Day

Sometimes, you just need to get away.

Brian had Monday AND Thursday off, because in our district they wouldn't want you to have two actual days off together because you might actually like to plan something fun.

Alex, on the other hand, had only Monday he had school and practice yesterday.

Michael (and my oldest son, too) have Thursday and Friday off...which is called St Michael's on campus because M pushed for a long October weekend when he 1st came on board.

So, it was Toy Story time for those of us who were on break.  (sorry, Alex!)


Brian's pal, Jack, who has become son # 5 around here, came to spend the night (which involved a massive nerf dart tag game and why oh why does my new camera not have a backlight whenever I shoot a video???  I have a hilarious video and it's BLACK, but makes me laugh...imagine Alex doing military defense moves,  so I just might post it anyway.) and his mama brought me flowers.  AND wine.  He's welcome anytime.


OH, this is Brian and Jack.  
90 something degrees in October.  Somehow, the weather which has been so hot and dry at my house, seemed perfect while strolling the park.
Ummmm....there were candy corns in the palm trees.  Sigh.  I need to buy me some giant candy corns for my house!
Ran into (and cutted in front of bunch people in line...sorry about that!) this group of troublemakers.

Rode one ride with them and then they went one way and we went another.  We had such a nice time...M and I actually sat and drank an iced coffee (for him...tea for me, thankyouverymuch) while the boys ran around that whole camp area.  Fun for them and a date for us!


Came home, finished homework, dropped off Jack, collected Alex, texted Matthew and drove to Nick's.

Table for 5, please.

So a day at Disney followed by a dinner out with my tableful of boys at our favorite place.  Matthew came home with us and hung out til late...I'm hoping we might see him again this weekend.  I tried to get a Christmas card photo, but instead wound up with Alex singing 'Bicycle' by Queen on video.  Priceless.  It is, once again, dark...sigh, but hysterical.

Aside from a video, I ended up with Matthew, who was perturbed that we were even asking him to do this, Brian, who could NOT stop laughing and Alex.  



It's a good thing I like him.


Perfect for the Grandparent'
