A great weekend

Good morning! Well, we successfully navigated another busy weekend at the Dungan household. This one was jam packed with a litany of birthday parties and beginning of the year school parties. Most importantly, this weekend has been highlighted by a visit from Grammie (my grandmother and the kiddo's great grandmother) We only get the opportunity to see Grammie once or twice per year so this is always a treat for us. We try to get in as much Grammie face time as we possibly can. I am happy to say that even with our busy party schedules we were able to spend some great quality time with her.

On Saturday morning we hoofed it over to visit with her at my mother's house. There they had adequate opportunity to terrorize my mother's house before we left for a an hour of grocery shopping, etc. While Graham and Ainsley napped that afternoon. Sydney and Lynley found themselves back over at DeeDee's watching movies and baking cookies with Grammie. The late afternoon was dominated by a 2nd grade class swim party. The evening brought dinner out and, for me, a lap full of 22 ounces of beer courtesy of Graham. I smelled like a brewery which, all in all, was not that bad after I finished it's replacement.

Sunday brought some more time with Grammie. We took a load of crafts and another movie over. We spent the better part of the morning and early afternoon pestering Grammie. It doesn't get much better than that. I am quite sure she needed a nap after our departure. The Dunganlets are tiring - even just to watch. In the afternoon we escaped to a birthday party full of go carts and carnival rides only to race back home for dinner with Grammie over at our house. I will tell you. She is going to need a vacation from this vacation.

So, here, we are. Back, facing a brand new week. It will be another busy one but that is just how we seem to like it.

That is how purpose works. The more time you spend on it, the greater the rewards.
