Dad Weekend

E's going away for the weekend with the girls of her family, so from Friday morning to Sunday night it'll just be me, the two littluns, and the dog.  It'll be a challenge, but I'm kind of looking forward to it too. 

I think the key is going to be planning enough stuff to do so we don't all go bonkers sitting at home. While I'm a big fan of 'pottering around the house', it always sounds a lot better than it actually is, when kids are involved. 'Pottering' in child language translates to 'lets squabble and wreck stuff as much as we possibly can'. 

So, Friday (I'm taking the day off, and Little e goes to pre school) and Sunday (church in the morning) will be okay, but Saturday is going to be the biggun.  Just a big expanse of day. I'm still trying to nail down that Big Outing, which will tucker out the kids, but not be too ambitious as something I can handle on my own.

What does E do with them during the day to get them tired?

Nice background to your blog BTW. :-)

I had a morning of responsibility last weekend :). Took them into the city to ride the monorail - it was gold!

Love the new theme btw...

Laetitia- she plans lots of good activities. She's good like that.

Matt- Good idea mate. It's good that at least someone uses that monorail!

And thanks guys for the feedback on the new theme.. I'm not convinced with it yet, but getting there.
