1. After a weekend trip to Toys R Us (we had gift cards to use), we came home with a pair of these Incredible Hulk boxing gloves. I am little embarrassed to admit it, but I LOVE this toy. As a family, we have had a ton of fun having battles together all weekend. The gloves make a growling noise when they make contact with something. These are one of those toys that are purchased by a four year old boy that you don't know if they will be ever played with, but in the end is a great fun toy. I should have purchased another set for more battling fun.
2. This past weekend, our ward had it's annual Fathers and Sons camp out. My sons look forward to it every year and so do my daughters and me because we have a "Mothers and Daughters night" at the same time. This year, we started out by doing cartwheels and somersaults, went to dinner at Macaroni Grill, painted fingernails and toenails, and watched "The Nancy Drew Movie". (Which I would highly recommend--fun, easy viewing.) We always meet the boys at McDonald's for breakfast the next morning and report on our respective activities.
3. I also was reminded this weekend how grateful I am to be married to handsome dentist. After a Sunday, when I felt frustration about most things going on around me, dentist husband, like a knight in shining armor, stood by and supported me. There are times I think, "How were we lucky enough to find each other?"
