I had the nicest mother's day weekend this year. Friday night we started out with Kenzie's volleyball tournament, which they won! YAY! Then she had a birthday party overnighter to attend and Jake slept over at his friend's house so it was just Frank and I. Boy I relish alone time with my man. We watched movies (Silver Linings Playbook and The Impossible - both were pretty good).
Saturday we woke and had to get Kenzie and then get her over to her afternoon tournement. They put up a good fight both games, but ultimately did not win the 2nd round. They were super disappointed, but Coach was great and gave them a pep talk about how great their year was overall. They really did learn a lot and played very very well.
Saturday night I headed to bed early and Sunday we played hookey from church. The kids greated me with super sweet cards and my favorite candies and Frank made me breakfast in bed. After which we then went and climbed Castle Rock. You know, in the 11 years I've lived here I've never hiked the rock. I've had the opportunity to do it, I just never took it. So, this was my choice for Mother's Day. The sites were beautiful. The peaks all still have snow on them and it was a nice clear view from the Rock.
Afterwards we hit Target so I could get some workout clothes and then we headed to lunch at Chili's. Caribbean salad - one of my fav's. Then we came home and I got in a 2-hour nap. Delightful. Later that night we ate cookout food that Frank had prepared and watched an older movie (Moneyball) that I love.
This morning cold, hard reality hit -- back to the gym. Last week was such a bust that I went with trepidation...but Amy is awesome as usual and we got right to work. I'm sweating a lot more, and earlier which she says is a good sign. That girl knows how to work me, that's for sure.
Anyway -- my weekend was perfect. I loved every minute of it.
