I need more of weekends like this

This weekend was great! Lots of sleep, family outings, and good food. Saturday was such a relaxing day that we felt bad for keeping the kids inside (after a few days of being forced inside due to Evie's illness) so we gathered up our stuff and headed to Graeter's Ice Cream for some good eats. Bad idea - since everyone else had the same one. It was more crowded than I have ever seen it! A madhouse!!! We basically just grabbed some ice cream and left. The kids went down around 8pm and Patrick and I hung out, watched tv and played cards. He came from way behind to beat me in rummy....but that's another story!

Sunday we took a trip to the Franklin Park Conservatory for their Enchanted Express exhibit as well as their orchid displays. Both were totally awesome!!!!Here are some of our pics from the day...

We rounded out the weekend by having our good friends, the Welshes, over for Superbowl. The kids had fun until half time when they left. Then we put our kids down and watched the rest of the game. We didn't really care - but were kinda hoping for the Pats. But either way was good!

The orchids are beautiful! We'll have to make a trip there soon.
