Weekend Update

On Saturday, Madison and I spent some time at the Springs Preserve with Amy, Ken and two of their friends, along with their daughter. Of course she and Madison hit it off right away and we spent most of our time their chasing them around, but they enjoyed themselves and that's really all that mattered. Afterward we had some lunch and parted ways - Madison and I were to run errands at that point but she was so exhausted that we came home to chill out and watch Enchanted. Here's an example of my view of Madison pretty much the whole time we were there:

Today Madison and I spent some time at the park - the weather is so beautiful right now! She has this thing for climbing up this tall artificial cork/turf-type hill and sliding down on nothing but her shorts, and damn if I didn't have my camera with me. I feel road rash every single time she does it! Late this afternoon we all attended a baby shower for my stepsister Cassie and her husband Jose. It was different having a co-ed baby shower but I do believe the guys enjoyed themselves (or misery just loves company, not sure which applies...). Here's a picture of Madison being silly at the shower:

Of course there are more pictures at Flickr...

Tomorrow should be an interesting day, as we had some major email system issues occur over the weekend, which should keep the whip cracking on me for all of tomorrow if not more of the week. Oh, not to mention our governor should be making some announcements concerning our State budget problems and the solutions. I've got my fingers and toes crossed that the solutions don't include layoffs!

The Springs Preserve is so much fun! I think I am going to take my best friend there when she comes to visit later this month. Glad you got to enjoy it. And luckily there are not many places kids can run off to in there.

Funny... we're having problems with email servers too.

What a fun weekend! Glad you were able to it. I have to ask, was Enchanted any good? It looked like it might be okay and I thought about checking it out, but I'm not too sure.

I hope your day at work wasn't too much hell and I'll keep my fingers crossed too, for ya.

We had so much fun! Glad you had a good rest of your weekend.

Wow, she sure is growing up. Seems like ages since I've visited and seen a pic of Madison. She looks and sounds like a great kid. Glad you had a great weekend.

Hope you are all doing well, and keeping out of too much mischief.

Take care, Meow
