Jen was shocked when we surprised her with an iPod Touch! How could we not get her one when she’s been raving about her daughter’s? No mother of an eleven year old should be without one – at least, not if we had anything to say about it.
We hit a total of four wineries and spent over an hour at each! We took our time tasting, devoured the yummy appetizers we all brought to share, and just enjoyed one another’s company. The only sad moment was saying goodbye to everyone at the end of the day.
Then came Sunday, and it was practically perfect in every way.
My bike is finally working, so I rode up and down our court a million times with the kids. I didn’t realize how novel it would be to them, seeing me on a bike! Noelle just had her training wheels removed a few days ago, so she’s over the moon on her new found talent. I think she rode for about five hours that day!
Noelle and I did our usual grocery store routine, which she is a trooper about. We love spending time together, and I’ll take it as long as I can get it. We might have also stopped in at Target where I might have bought another book, too.
The best part of the day? Not watching even one MINUTE of the Superbowl! I have decided I am done watching any sport of any kind unless I feel like it. And typically I only feel like it if it’s live. Baseball, football, hockey – bring it on if I can be right there, watching the action. But on my television? Nah!
As the weather slowly begins to improve I plan to have more and more great weekends like this one. Beach trips will be on the horizon, as well as the new Disney Museum that has apparently opened up in San Francisco. For now, I’m happy to follow the mad crazy two-wheel rider that is my daughter.
