Busiest Weekend Ever!

I really don't remember ever having to do so much in 2 days! Good thing about the beginning of this weekend was that we didn't have to be up at the crack of dawn, but still, we were up & immediately getting ready for 10am baseball practice. Afterwards, we had to go buy last minute things that my son needed for his wardrobe for Oneida's Dance Studios photo shoot. Both my daughter and son take dance classes here, and this weekend they were taking the pictures that will be in the program that is given out during the recital in October. Now my son takes Salsa, Tango and hip hop, so he needed some last minute items this Saturday as he was due to be at the dance studio at 3! My daughter was invited to a birthday party, which was at the same time that my son was going to be taking his pictures, so unfortunately, I couldn't stay with him. At 3pm, my husband and I dropped our son off at the Dance Studio and went to Bowler City for the birthday party.

The party was fun, and my daughter loved bowling. LOL, this was her first time bowling and now wants to go back....she really enjoyed herself!

The party was ending around 5:30 so we started heading back to pick up our son. We had to wait a few more minutes, and I was able to see the last pic they took. I loved it, my son looked so handsome!!

After all this we headed to the Little League to clear up a mess, as usual there is always Little League drama in our lives due to so much gossip....all I have to say is Thank God this is my son's last year there!! We were back home by 10 and went straight to bed!

Sunday morning was an early morning, since my son had to be at Miller Stadium at 8am. My daughter had her photo shoot at 10am, so I had to pack everything and take it with me. While I waited for the game to start, I had to do my daughter's hair and make up for the shoot. At 9:30am it was time for me to head out. I wish I could've stayed to watch the double header, especially since my son was pitching, but I had to go.

The photo shoot was good, exhausting and some moms get in the way which delays the photographer, but it was good.

5 hours later, we were on our way back home. I made a quick lunch and we were off again for 7pm All Star baseball much baseball!! It never ends, LOL!
We were all back home, finally, at 9pm. Weekends like this make me glad that I am currently unemployed :) I'm not sure how well I would've functioned at work today!

Taking a Detour!!!!

So we are up & out of my dad's house by 7am.  It was hard and I tried to leave quickly, my poor baby girl even cried-I felt soooo bad for her.  Usually I'm the only one crying, but she really didn't want to leave :(  So,  we said goodbye-hope to be back soon (permanently) and we drove off!
About an hour out, we stopped for breakfast and had to practically make a run for it, LOL! There were like 20 buses full of kids!! By the time we got inside, the Dunkin Doughnuts line was like a mile long-ugh, there goes my coffee!  So we had no other choice but to eat burgers at Wendy's, everything else had super long lines that we didn't want to wait on!
We grabbed our burgers and left.  A little while later Laz asks me if I want to stop at Clearwater Aquarium.  At this point, I'm not 100% sure-I was sad about leaving & felt like just being home to calculate & come up with good, concrete reasons to move to Florida.  On the other hand, I really wasn't looking…

Weekend Trip to Niagara Falls, Canada~Part 2

Here is our 2nd day in Niagara Falls.  We started our morning with breakfast in the hotel restaurant.  After breakfast we headed over to Marineland.  This park was nothing spectacular, but it was a nice little trip.  We saw a dolphin show, saw several other animals, killer whales, fed Beluga whales and rode 1 or 2 rides.  Again, nothing spectacular but it was fun.  A lot of walking, and our favorite part was feeding the beluga whales - they were so cute!
The dolphin show was also fun!  Its been a long time since we've seen dolphins in action.

After all the walking, we were run down and hungry.  We headed back to the hotel to shower and prepare for our dinner at Massimmo's Italian restaurant.  The view was beautiful!  I enjoyed dinner, but hubby and baby girl didn't.  I like to try new things and unfortunately the other 2 don't - and there wasn't much on the menu that they liked.  Baby girl had Ceasar Salad, hubby had Minestrone soup and I had Linguine Carbonara.

Cooking Corner: Cookbook Challenge Day 1

Hi everyone!  I'm starting April with a little challenge for myself.  You are all welcome to join if you choose.  I have a rather large collection of recipes that I've never tried and since I started to declutter my life of things I don't need, this is one area that needs help. What do I need so many cookbooks and binders of recipes for? I don't know - it just takes up space and it's another thing for me to clean.  So, I decided that if I can't find good recipes that we love, there is no point in keeping the book or recipe.  I attempted this challenge a few years ago but never followed through.  This time, I intend to stick with it.
Here's my challenge:
Pick a book a month and try some recipes.
Decide what we like and what we don't.
If I have at least 15 recipes that we like, the book stays.  If not, I'll just copy the few recipes we liked and get rid of the book.
Not sure what I'll do with the book yet.  I'll figure it out at the end of th…
