On January 7th, we took the kids to the Worcester DCU Center for the Motorcross event. It was awesome! Anne loved it as much as JD did. We thought she might possibly be bored with it, but it really was a fun cheap family night out. Those guys on the bikes are nuts. They flip in the air, jump off their seats and dance all around the bikes. It was so fun to hear them announce each driver and their silly names. Great night! Next time, I want to see the Monster Trucks.
Congrats to JD for earning his new Cameo Green Belt!!! He is so not shy in front of 100s of people demonstrating his moves! We are so proud of him. He has learned good posture, confidence, courtesy, respect and hard work!!! Cannot wait to see what happens next!
I am sure some of you have heard of Elf on the Shelf. I got an idea from a facebook friend to have "Sid" do something different one night. Well, he got into a scuffle with some friends of JD, Anne and some marshmellows. They loved it!!! So hilarious!!! JD and Anne were talking about it for days!
The first weekend of December we went away with some of my girlfriends from High School. It was the old gang back again, Ann, Erica, Heather and myself. Everyone brought their husbands and kids. It was a blast. We arrived on Friday and had dinner at the Tavern where we stayed. Doug and I brought my cousin Madison to watch the kids, so we could enjoy adult time after hours. My kids absolutely love Madison and it is always fun to bring her on vacation with us.
On Saturday, we went tubing on Cranmore Mountain and a chocolate tour sleigh ride. Ann and Wayne were hilarious, we arrived at the mountain and they put bloody mary's in their jackets for the tube ride down!!!
Madison, Anne and I went down the new ride at Cranmore. The Alpine Slide. It was awesome! Anne was SO NERVOUS to do it and I couldn't have been prouder to have her come down with me!!! It was so fast! She loved it.
Saturday night we went to a great Family restaurant (it had a kid movie room, and a playroom) It was called the Red Fox. Ann and Wayne bought all the kids toys that were hilarious. I wish we had a video of them opening them! Fake guns, fart machines, pop rockets, etc. When Annie and Wayne have kids, their pay back will be fun!!!
We had such a great time with my old buds, that we hope to have it be an annual event.
