Weekend Plans

Is it me, or do these weeks seem to be running on fast forward? This Friday Steve is taking the older kids to a Pirate baseball game in Pittsburgh. The Pirates are playing really good ball so far this year, and the kids are all very excited. Steve taking the kids brings back so many fond memories of the Pirate games my own father took me to when I was young. Life has a way of moving on, doesn't it? My father took me to baseball games, and now I am visiting him in his nursing home while my own kids go to a game with their dad.

Saturday is a quiet day. I hope to do a whole lot of nothing before attending afternoon Mass. After that, Madison has work at Dairy Queen and Rhett at the movie theatre. Rhett is my movie buff, and he spends a lot of time there volunteering with the popcorn and cleaning. He loves it! The rest of us will come home to a quiet summer evening and a simple dinner.

Sunday is another free day. Madison works until 6:00, so after that I am planning a nice summer meal. Steve wants to cook some steaks on the grill, and I think I will bake some potatoes and throw on some broccoli or corn- on- the- cob if I can find some! Perhaps I will ask Peyton to make a dessert, too!

Well, that is what is happening here this weekend. I hope yours is happy and sunny and full of family, whatever your plans may be! : )

My dad and I at our annual Pirate game...1982!

All set for the Taylor Swift concert last week...

they had a blast!

My dad felt up to a night out, so Flynn and I took my sweet parents out for pizza and beer!

Trying to decide if Teddy should come with us that night...He did! : )

Cupcake Day this week...my favorite? Chocolate Pistachio

Afternoon coffee on a rainy summer day=Perfection!
