This weekend was a great weekend for the Livingston family. Friday night our friends Cathy and Cory and their kids Emma and Evan came over for homemade pizza. I found an amazing crust recipe – that I think we like better than any carry out pizza. Definitely a keeper. I’ll post it to my recipe blog a little later. The adults were able to get in a great visit while her kiddos – both older – had fun playing the Wii and entertaining WeeMan. They have a couple of amazing kids. Evan is 14 and seemed to love being around WeeMan. Emma who is 10 was the same way. I just hope our WeeMan grows up to be as good a kid as them.
Saturday started out a little iffy. Our plan was to go to the zoo for the Halloween activities, but Hubby found out Friday he had to work. Plus the sky was overcast and threatening rain all day. WeeMan and I slept in and then ventured out to one garage sale. (Gotta get my fix before the season ends) I found a cool little chair for WeeMan – kind of like a cross between a barstool and a highchair. Looks terrific at our table. I also got a ton of good children’s books – WeeMan will get some and the rest will be Christmas gifts for the nieces. I also got a gallon size bag of tubes of acrylic paint and a stencil book for monograms. Got some crafty plans up my sleeve. Luckily hubby made it home by noon – so we ate a quick bite of lunch and then headed to the zoo to meet our friends.
The zoo was crowded but not overly badly. WeeMan and their little girl had a great time visiting all the stations. Here’s a few shots from the day.
We wrapped up a fantastic weekend with another terrific day today. Naps in the afternoon. Then I made beef stroganoff for dinner and we had a family date night. Special dinner followed by watching “How to Train your Dragon” as a family. The perfect wrap up to a wonderful weekend.
