Our weekend

Hey Everyone! Happy Weekend! Too bad it's coming to an end :(  Why is it that weekends always seem to fly by and the weekdays can take forever?

Kaydin scored two goals at her soccer game on Saturday morning! That's three so far for the season!
After the game, Kaydin and I ran some errands and Tim got some stuff done around the house. Later in the afternoon the weather cleared up and we took the pups for a long walk.




Once back from our walk we got working on our supper. Chicken sausages and grilled romaine salads (recipe to come). I made myself my favorite drink, coconut rum with pineapple juice, and Tim opened up a bottle of wine- a red I actually liked! That hardly ever happens unless it's Stella Rosa!






The next morning we had a yummy breakfast of waffles.  I used the quick method of the pre-made mix and added a few extras to it.  I used a whole wheat pancake and waffle mix and mixed some pumpkin puree into the batter, then threw in a few handfuls of chocolate chips for good measure! Kaydin asked for sprinkles on hers, had to make it extra pretty!

Last summer I bought a zoo and science center membership. We had yet to make it to the science center. Today was the day to venture down there before it was too late and our year pass was up!

 Right now there is an exhibit going on called Lost Egypt. There are many artifacts on display including a human mummy. And a camel! Climb on up!

Des Moines' new weather girl!
 We made our way through a few exhibits and then headed to the IMAX theater. After the movie started Kaydin looked at me and said, "Are the seats really moving?!?" It didn't make her dizzy though, and she made it through the whole movie. We saw Born to be Wild about raising orphan elephants and monkeys. Before the movie was even over Kaydin decided she wanted to bring home baby elephants and keep them in her room!
Next on the agenda was a little cleaning. I finally broke out the broom and cleaned off the patio from all the built up leaves from last fall and planted a few herbs.  I should have done this long ago but better late than never!  We finished off the night with a new cookie recipe that I'll share soon!

What did you do this weekend?
