Our Crazy Weekend......

So it started off with a Birthday party and ended with a really good steak!
Friday night I went to Airake's and celebrated Natalie's Birthday! It was a blast. I have never been to one of those restaurants that they throw rice at you and chop/cook food in front of you. It was lots of fun!
Saturday it was up at 6 am to head to Jefferson City so Macy's Destination Imagination Team could compete in the Regional Tourney. Had to be there at 8:45 am and left around 6:30 pm and stopped for dinner so it was a looooonnnnnggggg day! But totally worth it since the won FIRST PLACE!!!!! So now we are off to Joplin, Mo. in April to compete in the State Tourney. If we place first or second at State then the next level is Globals at the University of Tennesse! We took fourth in State last year. These kids have so much fun that I don't care how far they make it. I just love that they are learning and having a good time at the same time!kWhile Macy and I were at Regionals, Geoff took his nephews to Monster Jam for some boy time. God, knows he needs that with all the girls here at the house! He said that they did go to the bathroom more in the few hours that they were there than the girls would have needed to go in a 12 hour period......but he still had fun!!
So up early Sunday morning.....of to church and then 2 kid birthday parties at 1 pm. Geoff took the twins to their friend Logan's 5th Birthday and I took Macy to her friends party. Busy Busy times. Got home threw some steaks on the grill and wa-la.....dinner. I love grilling when its only 35-40 degrees, but it was well worth it! Marinted them in little soy sauce, worcestshire, garlic, and montreal steak seasoning. Supa' good.(thats how Sophie says it!)
