Spending Saturday at Home

This has been my first Saturday at home without anything to do in over a month.  Boy did it feel good to just sleep in this morning!  Can I tell you how much I enjoy having two kids old enough to get up and make their own breakfast {aka pour their own cereal} so that I take my good ol' time getting up? I like this!

I must confess though when I say "without anything to do" I don't mean that quite literally.  As we all know, a mom always has something to do.  After I finally left my bed and had some breakfast and coffee myself, the kids and I blasted music and had a bit of a cleaning fest.  I wouldn't even have let a pizza delivery man come to our upstairs as it was!  Am I the only one that takes over a week to unpack from a vacation??  We still had four suitcases spread around our bedroom from our Florida vacation last week.  I am happy to report though that everything looks much better {mom you would be proud}, although more cleaning will be taking place tomorrow.

We went to swimming this afternoon and I'm always amazed by the strength my kiddos display during swim lessons.  I don't think I could swim half a lap, but they go back and forth effortlessly and then ask to play afterwards.  Now that Zoe can keep up with her big brother, they enjoy swimming together and make up little games to play.  I just love when they get along!

For the past hour or so I've been able to shut myself in my room for a little R&R, otherwise known as blogging, twittering, and facebooking.  I thought I would throw up this quick post because these are the days I want to remember.  The days where things are calm and peaceful!

Tonight the family is headed out on the town.  First it will be a family dinner out at a local Mexican restaurant and then the boys are off to the movies to see Diary of a Wimpy Kid which Dylan has been dying to see while Zoe and I head to the theatre to see a dance recital of Snow White.  It will be fun having a girls night together and I'm excited that the boys can go out and do something fun too.

It's wonderful to be able to just slow down and enjoy family time.
After all, spending time with those you love is what it is truly all about!!

I hope you are having a fabulous weekend so far!!
