Weekend Always in View

One of our local news channels always reports the weather with “the weekend always in view”.  We are always looking forward to the weekend so it’s nice to know they are keeping our agenda in mind with the weather forecast!  This weekend we were completely focused on the weather, with Tropical Storm Debby out in the Gulf at a complete stand-still and a company picnic on the calendar!  Fortunately, the storm really held off until early Sunday so our picnic wasn’t interrupted.

We had some great food and the kids had a lot of fun playing.  We all played a game of kickball….and let’s just say there’s a reason I haven’t played that since I was about 12.  My body ached in places it didn’t know existed….never have I even thought about the back side of my knee.  Really?  We should definitely keep shopping for hot tubs; these bods ain’t gettin’ any younger!

Family game of corn hole!

Jessa was the only one to get the beanbag in the hole!

Luna investigated the inside of a basket and was caught in the act when we returned.

Sunday the rain lasted all. day. long.  It was so incredibly relaxing!  The kids were with their mom for the day so Mr. F and I did a few things around the house, made some banana bread and hot tea, watched Elizabeth, and waited for the kids to get back.

Today TS Debby is still looming and the rain is intermittent.  Jessa and her best pal discovered some discarded palm fronds and put them to good use.  Take a look at the creativity in these young minds!  Adorable.

Alas, it’s only Monday, but the weekend is always in view.
