First of all, I want to say a huge thank you to Jim, Cheryl and Corey for hanging out, as well as a big thank you to Mark and Karen for letting us steal their kids for the weekend.
Friday night was simple, we ordered pizzas and then went geocaching. Jim, Cheryl and Corey had never gone, so it was only appropriate that the 2 caches we hunted were found by them.
After Geocaching, we just hung out at Ocee Park and had fun having a softball throwing distance contest, as well as tossing the ‘ole pigsk…I mean nerf football around. We were going to head to Menchie’s later on, but it got too late so we just went home and called it a night.
Our 3 family night mashup was a success, it was awesome. Only to be outdone by the following day.
Saturday morning didn’t turn out so great, as I mentioned and confessed I can sometimes be a Diva (or Divo?). Thank goodness the rest of the day got flipped upside down. As Kim and I were driving home, and after getting out of my crankfunk, I panicked and thought “Oh man, we have 5 kids and we can NOT stay inside for the rest of the day!”
WE HAVE TO DO SOMETHING! tweet
Lo and behold, we get a call from Cheryl and since Kim and I love spontaneous, we agreed to make the hour drive up to Amicalola Falls with them and their dog Max. It was amazing, and we all got a good workout hiking from the base to the top.
A great hike, with some awesome friends and family and we finished the day eating some greasy goodness at the Dawsonville Pool Room. By the time we made it home the kids were asleep. Success.
How was your weekend, did you do anything amazing?
Do you have a family night?
Here are some shots of the day, mostly taken by Kissy.
