What a Weekend...

We're approaching bedtime on this beautiful Sunday, and I'm really wishing we could have that extra hour back.  Our family had a hectic weekend, but it was a lot of fun.  After spending Saturday morning and afternoon at Upward for my younger son, the two of us made a mad dash for Fort Wayne to see my wife and other son (we made it just in time for his 4:30 game).  We had a little time to relax while we enjoyed dinner in Fort Wayne (and of course some shopping to complete my wife's agenda).  We made it home around 10:00 (or should I say 11:00 - either way we were about to lose an hour before morning).  The alarm was set for 5:30 so we could get ready for an early morning tip-off in Fort Wayne.  We made it back to Fort Wayne and were prepared for an exciting semi-final.   Unfortunately we came up on the short end of an overtime game which had many lead changes along the way.  We enjoyed some time with team members and families for a late breakfast followed by a quick shopping stop. 
We were able to make it home for an enjoyable afternoon in the sun.  I finally was able to complete some items on my spring checklist (get the grill ready, bring the patio furniture up to the house, put the snow items away, etc.).  Of course a beautiful spring day would not be complete without some baseball in the backyard and a nice long run (I missed yesterday's run so I had to combine the two distances for a nice 10-mile adventure... much more enjoyable in 60 degree temps.). 
I think our schedule was really thrown off with the tournament.  I can't remember the last time we did not attend church.  My youngest son will really be bummed when he's reminded we have school tomorrow.  It's much more enjoyable facing the weeks when you know spring temperatures are in the forecast. 


  1. Wow--sounds hectic, but full of time with family. Glad you got to enjoy the outdoors, and hope that the start of the week is good.

  2. You packed so much into this slice -- making your jam-packed weekend feel real to the reader. Wow! I hope the week brings you a little bit of relaxation and time to breathe.
