The local drive-in movie theatre was supposed to open last weekend and, being as I still have a baby attached to me and haven't been out to see a movie since last July, I really, really, REALLY wanted to go. No such luck. The theatre didn't open until Sunday night, which, being a work night for Matt, did NOT work for us. The rest of the weekend was pretty crappy, literally, since baby C pooped in the tub, with me in it. It was one of those slow motion, nightmarish moments, you can see it happening, but just can't figure out how to stop it. Overall, Mother's Day was a bit of a write off.
Enter this past weekend. It was the MOTHER of all weekends, and, in my books, a complete do-over of Mother's Day weekend. Saturday we had friends over for breakfast, went shopping, bought a kiddie pool, swam in the kiddie pool and went to, wait for it...the drive in, which was, at times, a bit of a disaster with the kids waking each other up, but we stuck it out, got home at 1:30 in the morning, were up at 6:00 am Sunday and drank coffee, coffee and more coffee.
