On Thursday evening, I was thinking about my busy weekend and was wondering if I was going to make it with all of the mommy activities I had committed to, but I made it and it was wonderful!
On Friday, we had our annual read-a-thon at school and right after school we had Girl Scout and a Centennial football game. We didn't get home until late, but we didn't let that ruin the next day.
On Saturday, we had soccer at 8 o'clock in the morning and then the school carnival. I worked for about 3 hours while Kalena visited booths and hung out with some friends. Kulia and I worked on top of the large, inflatable slide, and let the kids know when it was okay to go down which is what we were doing in the picture. It was about 105 degrees and after 3 hours I was exhausted, but that didn't stop us. We rushed home to take showers and get ready for Mom's house for Ron's Birthday dinner. Chad and his new girlfriend, Shelly, made us all dinner and it was delicious. Mom kept Kulia for the night and Kalena went home with my sister. Kunane and I headed home for an evening alone. The funny thing is, we stopped by TGI Fridays for a drink, wanting to enjoy adult time, but we were both so tired right after we order we said we were too tired to stay and headed home. So much for some adult time with each other!
On Sunday morning, I got up at 7:00 and headed for the Race for the Cure. Every year, Mom, Kelley, the girls and I walk together to celebrate my mom's 18 years of survival. This year my dear friend, Vicki, joined us and it was a blast. After the race we headed for Coco's for lunch. It was great to celebrate with both Mom and Vicki and spend some girl time together. I am so thankful they are both still part of my life. Before we even got to the freeway both girls, Kulia and Kalena, were fast asleep in the car. I was tired for the busy weekend, so I know they were wiped out. I look back on these weekend and feel so thankful for the many people we spend time with and the activities we are able to do as a family. I am truly blessed!!
