Weekend relaxation

Oldest boys got a new tent this week to replace the one that leaked on the boy scout camping trip last week :-( This one has a nifty rain guard, so hopefully it will keep out any and all moisture! Nothing like being sopping wet in a sleeping bag to dampen your spirits! This one's nice and tall, too. They tried it out and it fits them both-and best of all, it's a snap to set up. Cool, huh?

Also, last nite hubby took 4 of the boys to the Monster Truck show downtown. No, they're not necessarily into that kind of thing, but when the tickets are free, you take them! Most excited was my 5 yo. He talked all week about going to see the monster trucks.

Unfortunately, his attention span is about 15 minutes long, so after that time, he kept asking when it was time to go home. It was quite loud, too, so in the absence of ear plugs, dad shoved some wadded up napkins in his ears. It did the trick. They had a lot of fun and saw some cool monster truck tricks. Fun!
Today my boys are gearing up for the Superbowl. One of the biggest days of the year for them. Sadly, neither of the teams favored in this house made it this far, so they had to pick a new team to root on today. If anything, it's a good excuse to cook up some yummy pizza, wings, and snacks. Yum!
