Well I am a little behind on getting this blog out there but last week ended up being a little crazy… more on that in a later blog.
The weather kept us from watching the nephews play baseball and lacrosse over the weekend (which had been the main purpose of our trip this time) but we still ended up having a great time. We had fun eating some awesome food (mexican, bbq, burgers, etc.) now the diet has begun again. In addition to joining a gym a couple weeks ago we also signed up for a personal trainer last week to help keep us focused on our health goals and get us to where we both want to be.
My mom, sister, and I got to do a girls night out on Saturday with a dinner out and then a night of painting at a paint studio close by. I have gone several times already and have a blast and mom and I went just a couple weeks before this but we thought it would be a blast to do all of us together. We had looked for a painting we could take the boys to as they love art too but it just didn’t work out on this visit so it will have to be another time.
In addition to the delicious food over the weekend, the whole family went indoor sky diving! This was one of the craziest things we have done as a family I think and was not even aware that it was on the table for possible events until the last minute. The indoor sky diving place was called iFly and they were amazing. Since I am in a wheelchair we were unsure if they would be open to helping me in order to enjoy the experience with everyone. They ended up being so great though with the instructor helping me get into the wind tunnel and guiding me as needed. If you have an iFly in your city and have the desire to go I would suggest it as an awesome activity to do with friends/family. At the bottom are a couple links to the videos for both Andy and I in the tunnel…
We also were able to watch my younger nephew’s piano recital with just enough time to make it to the airport. Luckily, his piano teacher was able to move the schedule around so he was first to play otherwise we would have missed that as well. It was awesome and he is such a riot. He played two different songs on the piano and the second song he actually played twice. The first time he played it sitting and the second he played laying down on the bench… haha!
What a whirlwind vacation/weekend but such a great time was had by all of us!
