I Been Bizzy

We were just discussing, about how bizzy we get on the weekends, and how other people seem to marvel at how we "go".
I recall a friend who once said, when I was pregnant with the big boy, about how she supposed I was gonna be one of those "Good Parents who DOES stuff with their kids."
I dunno - we just GO.
I don't want you to think I don't bitch a bit about it. I do, but usually I'm bitching because I am feeling bad or am cranky - not because we're out and about.
Maybe it's just me, but I think that the variety of places we go - museums, festivals, concerts etc....are GOOD for them.

And a lot of them are FREE. You just have to PAY ATTENTION.

Yesterday we did a festival at the twins school which included ungodly Georgia heat, and bounce houses (free) and a train show then when I came home the big boy and I made brownies. I've had people say WOW how did you do so much?

We got dressed and we left the house.

That is the secret.

You gotta get dressed and leave the house.

Pack a bag. And go.

That's it. That's the secret.

Events are in the newspapers and online.

Now you know our magic secret.

Yes, I remember many a summer's night where we would trek off to German Park for tasty beer (usually courtesy of Arno) and finally culminating in dancing wildly to the German Oom-pah Band version of LaCucaracha. Good Times! I just wish we could share that fun with our kids. Except for the underage drinking part . . . Although, we survived it.
