Here's what that week amounted to:
*Finally deciding on a color to repaint the kitchen (many hours were spent staring at paint samples and the wall).
*Playdates for the little ones and 'hanging out' for the older one.
*Visits with family...watching old Beta videos.
*Lots of legos, painting, art work, biking, superhero stunt shows, general childhood adventures.
*A trip to the Orpheum Children's Museum in Champaign. I haven't been there in awhile and they have made some great changes. The little ones LOVED it! and there is enough to keep me interested (plus there were some other parents I knew to chat with). My only worry is that you cannot see your children 100% of the time since there are lot of places to climb, etc.
*Eating in and out around town including Fiesta Cafe, Courier Cafe, and Ruby Tuesdays and using our new grill.
*Reading a lot....I read two books and my daughter read Twilight.
*Saw some movies, DVD, and theater.
*Saw High School Musical, the Ice Tour! It was $10/ticket so well worth a condensed version of all three movies. Our 5yo LOVED it! I thought it was entertaining but not the best Disney on Ice I've seen (but this was very story-driven, the others I've seen have had lots of different 'numbers' and focused more on the beauty of skating and cool special effects).
*Of course, we went to the library.
*Lots of rest and relaxation!
