We usually spend our weekends running errands, going to the grocery store and going to church, but this weekend was different. Yesterday an old friend of Kansas Dad's came by for lunch. I let the kids empty a box of Cheerios on the floor and revel in it for a couple of hours of peace so we could talk. (It was great.) Then we rushed off to mass and a baptism for the youngest of a family of five kids, so that was crazy. It was great to see them again and catch up a little. The kids went to bed late, especially with the time change, but that didn't stop us from heading to the zoo right after breakfast for a tour with a friend and her son (just a few months younger than First Daughter). After heading home for bed, nap and quiet time, Grammy and Paw Paw came for dinner -- and we grilled out! Spring is here. As you can see, the kids wore winter coats to the zoo, but we were playing outside just in our long sleeves before dinner. We had bubbles galore!
