We weren’t sure what to do this weekend since it was supposed to rain. So we came up with a planetarium show, lunch out for taco’s at Tacovore, and a stop at the bookstore for a cookbook I’ve been needing and some valentine crafts. Not quite as cool as sitting by the campfire…but it’ll have to do. 🔥
Jayden( age 8) said his card he made was for a girl named Valerie at school. ❤️So cute! But sadly his school doesn’t even allow Valentine’s Day parties anymore. Is that for all public school’s now? What do you think? Should they allow Valentine’s Day Parties or am I being insensitive to the people that don’t want to recognize the holiday. I just think it is a fun time to bring cards and small gifts to friends at school. I have fond memories of my school parties.
The show we saw was a short presentation about what is visible in the night sky this winter. All four of us learned a few things, even Jayden, who couldn’t seem to sit still for 10 seconds, and kept obsessing about having a sleepover later in the evening. Whenever he gets excited about anything, he can’t stop thinking about it, its on an endless repeat in his brain.
A few things we took away from the show…
- Mars is visible in the night sky currently, very cool! 😎
- Neptune is only gases, no land (I feel like I should have known this already, I must have forgotten).
- It takes Neptune about 165 earth years to orbit the sun, that’s a really long year!
- The other amazing fact we, or I learned, is that Jupiter has 79 moons. 🌙
After the show we were all starving, so we went out to our favorite taco restaurant, Tacovore.
It is always a hit or miss when we come here. Sometimes its so crowded the line is out the door, but today it was perfect, minus a little attitude from the boys. The boys’ attitude-also a hit or miss thing.
Next it was the bookstore for a cookbook I have used more than any other, just the classic Better Homes and Gardens all time favorites. I gave it away when I became vegan a few years ago and although I am still mostly vegan, I cook for people that aren’t. Plus there are just those occasions where I just need to make some yummy comfort food.
The bookstore was having a Valentine event with tables for various crafts. Joey was too old or “cool” for this, but Jayden was all over it!
Then it was home for a few hours before Joey had a basketball game and both boys were planning sleepovers at our house. Joe didn’t win their game but Its been a full day!
You know your getting old when a few hours before bed, you go in and turn on your electric blanket so its all cozy.
It was a great day overall, but I kept thinking about our campsite, I hope we will be there next weekend. How was your Saturday?
Have a great Super Bowl Sunday friends!
