Whirlwind Weekend

When my high school buddy Danny texted me saying he would be in town for the weekend and was wondering if I had some time to meet up, I felt terrible telling him our schedule. It was very uninviting for a single guy who probably hoped we could have a real conversation without being interrupted every 10 seconds.

Friday night Adam took Jack and Ben to Go Banana’s for Jack’s buddy Mekhi’s graduation party.

Go Bananas!

I stayed with the twins and had 2 blissful hours to myself. I wasted it on laundry and cleaning, but it was still nice to do it without a kid or two tugging on my leg.

Saturday we were so over booked we had to divide and conquer. Adam took the twins and Jack to his last soccer game.

I took Ben to his classmate, Eli’s, party at Pump it Up.

We all piled in the car in the afternoon for Jack’s baseball game. Adam watched Jack play while I covered the other three in a nearby playground. Not a free hand for any photo opportunities, sorry my loyal readers.

Then Adam dropped me off with Jack and Ben at Ben’s school for his school fair fundraiser. Adam took the twins home to feed them dinner and bath them. The school fair had lots of games and prizes, hot dogs and a big open space with playground to run and play. The kids loved it.

Sunday morning Adam took Jack to the park to practice some baseball while Ben, the twins and I hit our local corner park. Jack and Adam joined us later.

Then Adam watched the twins during their nap while I took Jack and Ben to another birthday party, Zack’s bowling party at Diversey River Bowl.

Basically, we had Sunday afternoon free to meet up with Danny. I don’t think he found it a very exciting offer, and I saw him later on facebook at Wrigley and checking out some of the local festivals. Would have been nice to see him, even nicer to hit some of the festivals he was thinking about doing this weekend with him. But unfortunately it’s not the time in our lives for that. This time in our lives are all playgrounds, birthday parties, and fast food dinners.

So we finished the afternoon at Adam’s park. Jack and Ben built a moat in the sand box then basically rolled around in it. Afterwards we hit Chipolte for a quick dinner at the ungodly hour of 4:50pm. The twins left an embarrassing amount of rice and beans on the floor but luckily they never make us feel bad about it there. And now I’m home, blogging, doing MORE laundry, and cleaning the kitchen before it’s time to drag my exhausted self to bed.
