Beautiful Weekend

I hope that everyone enjoyed their weekend as much as we did. On Friday night Mr. P had to work late, so I had an evening to myself. I brought take-out home (mac and cheese from one of my favorite restaurants) and spent the evening catching up on all of my blogs. My little two-month hiatus meant that I had a lot of reading to do! I enjoyed reading and catching up with everyone's lives. I've certainly missed out on a lot of things!

We slept in a little on Saturday morning, then got up and went out to breakfast together. We were leaving the restaurant and my cell phone rang. It was our friend M asking if we wanted to meet him for a round of golf. Of course we said yes, so we quickly went home, got everything together and went to meet M. It was slightly overcast and there was a light breeze blowing, so it didn't get too hot. I thought it was perfect weather for golf.

Saturday evening, we decided to try our cookout at the pond again. It was supposed to storm later on, but we hoped that it wouldn't get rained out a second time. Luckily, the storms stayed away and we were able to fish and grill out. The boys caught several fish, and I even caught a big bass and a big catfish. We had a great time!

This is the bass and the catfish that little ol' me caught! Yes, I'm too much of a girly-girl to get my fish off the hook. I wouldn't even hold the bass to get my picture taken with it. I thought we had a picture of me and Mr. P with the bass, but I guess it didn't take.

Here is one of the boys checking out the fish he caught. They would get so excited when they caught a fish!

I took this silly picture of Sunny. Of course she had to have her nose into everything while we were fishing. I was trying to take pictures of the boys and she kept dancing around my feet, wanting me to take her picture, so I snapped this one. It turned out so cute!

We were supposed to go out on the lake this afternoon, and then go celebrate my father-in-law's birthday this evening. But Mr. P has a cold, so we decided to skip the trip to the lake. We went over to my in-laws for a little while, but then we decided to come on home so that Mr. P could rest.

I haven't blogged about this, but I've been trying to lose weight for the past couple of months. I've lost about 10 pounds (and I still have more to go), but it's been so fun to fit into clothes that I haven't worn the last couple of years. Last summer, I bought a cute black dress with white polka dots on it. It was a little snug, but instead of taking it back, I said that I would lose a few pounds to fit into it but I never did. I do this all the time-does anyone else do that?? Well, this morning I tried the dress on and it fit! In fact, it is a little loose on me-yeah!! So I wore it to church and felt so good!

We've spent the evening watching a movie and resting up for the week ahead. Mr. P made reservations for a camping weekend at the end of June with two other couples. Fishing, camping, I'm turning into a regular outdoorsy kind of girl-which is so unlike me! We'll be tent camping, but the campground does have facilities with hot showers-that was a requirement for me!

I'm working tomorrow, but I don't have to be in until around 9:00-have I mentioned that I love summer break??
I hope that everyone had a great weekend!

Such a fun weekend! I'm glad to hear that teachers are still being hired...even if it is just one position! And yes, I always buy the smaller size with hopes of losing a few lbs!!
