Family Fun Day

I had a blast visiting with my peeps yesterday at lunch.  They made me laugh like I haven’t laughed in weeks, especially Bek-ster.  She’s great like that.  I love her for this!  Little J has been wanting to get together with her son lately, so she suggested we come to the Apple Festival in Niles, Michigan with them tomorrow. 

At first I thought, “damn, every time I take them somewhere like that I always end up spending waaaaay too much money.”  Then I remembered that we haven’t really done anything super fun like going to the fair in a very long time.  They were gone a big chunk of the summer, and since school started, the most exciting things we’ve done are going to the big park near the zoo and to the movies a couple of times.  I think they deserve a fun day with Mom, plus it will get them out of the house and it will be quiet for my step-dad to sleep. 

Plus, I’ll get to hang with Bek all day long, and that’s definitely a plus!  I told the boys last night, once I had checked the bank balance to be sure I had enough money available to go, and they are terribly excited about riding all the rides.  I myself don’t like roller coasters, or most fair-type rides, except for the tilt-a-whirl.  I’m scared of heights!  So, my big plan is enjoying the apple goodies.  I think my favorite dessert is apple crisp.  Yum. 

I’ll try to remember to take my camera so I can get some shots of the boys and me.  Hey, I’ll even have a friend there to take some pictures of all three of us together!

    We had such a great day. The boys got along, we saw a great parade, hung out with a great friend, rode rides, ate yummy food, and saw fireworks! I’m exhausted! I am uploading my photos and will probably post a HUGE photo post either tomorrow or Monday. Lots of homework tomorrow…
