Wow! We have been busy this week with Scott’s parents in town. We spent last weekend here in the Springs. Saturday morning, Scott and I spent most of the morning on the peak running up and down. More about that at a later date. Sunday, we took the kids to Santa’s Workshop, a kiddie amusement park just 20 minutes from the house. Unfortunately, we were rained out after lunch, but not before the kids took the adults on plenty of twisty rides, ugh! We spent the rest of the week hanging around town. We went to the Pioneer’s Museum, America the Beautiful Park, shops in Castle Rock, Manitou Springs…..The favorite of the week was the Iron Springs Chateau Melodrama. We really wanted to do something fun to celebrate Scott’s mom’s birthday. Scott decided that the melodrama would be fun. Fun was had by all. The best part was watching the kids reactions to the silliness of the show. With in-house babysitters, I got to have some one on one time with Sam and Alice. We got some back to school shopping done and made a trip to the library, sans Paige. If you don’t know that story, read here. Thanks Mom and Dad for all your help!
So, now it is Friday. We have dropped off Scott’s parents at the airport, eaten lunch, gone for a walk and now we are all enjoying some quiet time. Not much on the agenda for the weekend. Sam has two birthday parties, one Saturday, one Sunday. Scott will be running, and running, and running this weekend. This will be his last big run before the even bigger run. Check out his blog and see how his training is coming along. If you are still interested in donating to his charity run to benefit the Xinxiang SWI, it is not too late. Check out his blog for more details.
I hope you all have a great weekend. We are hoping for better weather and maybe some time at the pool. School starts on August 18th so we will be trying to squeeze in as much fun in the sun as possible.
