Weekend Plans?

Anyone have something fun they are planning for this weekend? We are going on an annual camping trip to the desert so we can ride our dirt bikes and four wheelers! Honestly, I've been so exhausted lately that the desert sun is just not sounding all that fun right now . . . I'd rather be home in my air conditioned house watching movies and relaxing!! LOL Oh well, the kids will have fun and that's what's most important. Smile

Aw I hope it's not too hot and you're able to enjoy the trip Jamie. We love camping.

We're going to an annual family picnic out of state. It's always a lot of fun. Because DH has been gone on work this week (and the last two) we're not sure if we want to spend the whole weekend there or if we want to do some things around here too.

We had a crazy busy weeekend last weekend traveling to a wedding, then a grad party, and then a surprise birthday party. We were all so tuckered out! We are considering going up a couple hour drive to a big water park and other activities resort for 2 days, but having a hard time choking down the cost of this 2 night stay. Otherwise we will stay home and get some stuff done. So not sure yet!
Have fun on the camping trip, I hope it not too hot! And Mia have fun at the picnic!

Mia, an out-of-state family picnic sounds like so much fun!

Robin, WHOA! You did a ton last weekend, that would be enough to last me a loooong time. Smile The resort idea sounds like a blast, but I can see how it would cost a pretty penny!

The weather is so strange sometimes! Now it's looking like it will be raining most of the weekend--UGH! I'd take hot desert heat over torrential desert raining any day! In this particular desert area that we go, when the forecast shows scattered showers, it really means bursts of monsoon downpours that flood the area throughout the day. We have a tiny trailer, which is better than a tent in a storm, but it is SO tiny that we don't hardly fit in it all together. We usually have my older two kids sleep in a tent so it's going to be mighty cramped if it rains and floods the whole time. argh! Here's to hoping the weather will change again. I'll stop complaining about the hot desert sun if it doesn't rain, I promise!! LOL

LOL, I think I would have to find a reason to stay home for the weekend Jamie! I don't think I would want to do super hot OR torrential downpours in a cramped space. Maybe you will get lucky ad the weather will be nice to you!! Let us know how it goes!

Ugh Jamie, I hope that it doesn't rain on your party. Your trip (normally, when not preggo) sounds freakin awesome!! I've never been to the desert and would be having the time of my life doing something like that. Smile

I have no clue, what, if anything, we'll be doing this weekend. If DH works, I'll go with, ordering a pizza! I'm Merry Sunshine I tells ya! Wink

Jamie- Camping in the desert sounds fun! I love camping and I have never done it in the desert. I don't know if I would enjoy it pregnant either though. I am sure you will have fun though. That kind of thing always ends up being fun. I love being outdoors. I hope it doesn't rain on you!

Robin- We went to a waterpark last weekend, but it was colder here than normal so it ended up being a little uncomfortable. That's what I get for not checking the weather ever. I am horrible at checking the weather. I hope that if y'all go that you have fun! I love waterparks!

I took off this Friday and the Tuesday after Memorial Day so I will have a 5 day weekend! Yay! I have needed a little break from work because it's been so crazy lately. I am looking forward to just taking it easy. We have had something to do every single night this week so I haven't made any plans for this weekend. We do have some family coming in town but they are staying with my cousin but I am sure we will have dinner with them one night.

It's looking like we'll be leaving here Sunday and returning Tuesday if the weather doesn't change. At least we'll be there for the party and for riding our toys in the sand dunes! I would prefer camping in the mountains, but my kiddos love riding their dirt bikes so much and we have some fun friends that camp with us in the desert that we usually end up there more often. We have to watch out for the critters though! Black widows, scorpions, sand puppies, oh my! The kids have a great time chasing lizards! There is a place nearby called Topaz Mountain where you can go and dig for topaz, and Geode Mountain is not far from there. It's pretty cool!!

Thanks Robin!

mmm pizza! What's your favorite kind of pizza, Marie? We have a couple of specialty pizza places nearby that I LOVE. We just don't eat there too often since it's pricey. One place is The Pie and the other is Arella. Wonder if they have those in other states?

Claire, a 5 day weekend sounds fun in itself. yay for getting a break from work!! Have fun at your family dinner and hope you get some R&R!
