The Best Laid Plans....

I was so excited Friday night. We had such a fun weekend planned, and I was excited to come home and write a Blog post all about the fun time we had together. Here was the Grand Plan:

Friday: dinner at Senor Tequila's
Saturday: Ultimate Garage Sale in a.m.
Mardi Gras parade at 3 p.m.
PBR Bull Riding at 7:30 p.m.
Sunday: church and lunch after.

Here's what ACTUALLY happened!! We did go to Senor Tequila's Friday night for dinner. But that didn't quite turn out the way we had planned. We had to WAIT for a table (never had that happen before) and then someone was quite bad at the table (only happened 1-2 times before). Bad to the point that his Daddy took him out to the car for a 'talk'. Needless to say he calmed it down after that. Things continued to go downhill after we got home. My stomach was messed up and we all went to bed early.

Feeling better in the morning, I decided to do something special for my boys. Something that I have never done before. I got up and fixed pancakes for breakfast. And not just plain pancakes, no, I made the 'supreme' pancakes off the Bisquick box. They sounded great and they tasted great. Everyone really enjoyed them...for about an hour. And then the real drama began. We all got food poisoning. My loving husband keeps telling me it was Senor Tequila's, but I tend to think it was something in the pancakes. I promise the eggs were still in date and I tasted the milk!! So, as you can imagine, none of the rest of our plans materialized. We all stayed close to the potties for the rest of the day. We ended up letting Jonathan stay up and watch bull riding on TV. He loves the bulls. So funny but he does love him some bull riding!!

Luckily, Mark and Jonathan were feeling better by Sunday. Unfortunately, I was not. They ended up leaving me at the house and went to the McDonald's playground to play for a few hours. I laid on the couch, did a zillion quizzes of facebook, and worked on our taxes. (The taxes are another whole sad sob story, but I won't go there today!!!)

I finally started feeling better Sunday night and finished washing/drying/folding clothes. What a weekend. Hopefully I will have better things to report after this next one! Here's hoping things are going better for ya'll!

Shh...Watching Birds

Just had to add this picture as well. We threw the first pancake (a little burned) out on the back porch for the birds. Jonathan had more fun standing at the window and watching the birds come up close. We had to work on not squealing and screaming every time the birds came close. He kept scaring the poor things off from the pancake!! Thus, the 'shh...'. Today, he saw a bird and told me, "Mommy, birds eat pancake?" So we went to check the porch, and yes! the birds did eat all of the pancake! (And Mark said they wouldn't touch that pancake, it was too burnt!!) Jonathan was so excited that the birds had eaten his pancake. Going to have to burn something else to feed the birds (shouldn't be that hard right? and probably safer than feeding it to my family at this point!!).

That's too cute! Sam has recently discovered bull riding as well and is head over heels in love with it! He worries about those little dogs being out there and those clowns with the "funny pants."
