The Busy Weekend

We have had a lot of fun this weekend, but we have been SO busy! I think it started on Thursday. Ian and I to town to pick up supplies and take him to see Ratatouille. I'm mostly sure that it's a great movie. I'm going to say that I'd recommend seeing it, even if I did miss at least three parts of for little boy potty breaks. That's the last time I take him to the movie by myself and not monitor his beverage consumption by the teaspoonful! At one point in the movie (don't read this if you don't want to spoil it, although I don't think I have enough details to spoil it) the rat was caught in a trap by the bad guy and by the time I returned from the potty break, the rat was cooking in the kitchen! AAAhhh! How did he escape??? I really wanted to ask the lady in the seat next to mine, but I thought that would be rude. I'm sure you're thinking to yourself, why didn't she ask him to hold it a bit longer??? I tried that. I'm sure the other movie patrons enjoyed the loud whining that followed that request! Needless to say, I'm looking forward to the DVD release so I can watch the movie and pause it when Ian needs a potty break!
Friday night we had two couples (who are part of the missionary builders that are helping build a new church building for the church we've started attending) over for dinner. We had a good time. I made Mexican food so they could assemble their own taco salad or nachos, whichever they preferred. It was a good time. Ian tried to sell them At Home Products during dinner! What a salesman!
Saturday was Colin's birthday so we had a party with his family. His parents came a little early and helped work on Ian's clubhouse. Ian was very grateful. Nothing had been added to his clubhouse since grandma and grandpa had helped get it started in April!
Today we went to church and then we had a picnic in Lacey at a park near where we used to live. It was for my At Home America team that I'm on. It was fun. Ian got to play (he loves that park) and I got to talk to grown-ups and Marsha, my team leader/mentor/executive gave us some cool gifts. Fun!
I'll try to post some pictures from the weekend!
