What a busy weekend we had. This, my friends is why I LOVE my job. I purposely did not schedule events/parties for this past weekend so I could pack it with family fun! Plus, our day trip was paid for with my commission from my last 2 parties!
Our extended weekend began with a sleepover! Chica's cousin S spent Thursday and Friday at our house. Thankfully they entertained themselves for about an hour, so I was able to get some phone calls in! WooHoo (even booked 2 parties) We did lots of running around outside then fueled up on tacos (my kids love tacos!) and mummy hotdogs! (S hates tacos) As hard as I worked on those Mummy Dogs, all the kids pealed the croissants off and fed it to the dogs! Off to bed then up for another full day! This time, we added another kid. We played outside, decorated cupcakes and had a HUGE bonfire. It was a little cold to sleep out so Daddy Lynch put up the tent in the game room. Next morning we filled up on the breakfast of champions...Pillsbury cinnamon rolls, donuts and chocolate milk. (yes, we have since detoxed from that sugar filled weekend.
BUT WAIT! It doesn't end there! Sunday, we took a day trip to Gettysburg. If you have never been, I HIGHLY recommend taking a GettyPed tour. This 2.5 hour trip consisted of us driving the kids around in mini, double seated scooter! We stopped about 5 times throughout the battlefield so that our crazy informative guide, Mike, could tell us everything he know about those 3 days. We stopped for lunch then went to the Cyclorama. This beautiful painting is 300ft long and 3 stories high. The artist sketched Pickett's Charge in 360*, took his sketches back to France, and he and 20 of his minions painted this work of art. Next time we go back, we are going to take our own bikes and ride around the battle field! We learned so much!
Now we have this tradition of hitting up a popular cupcake store wherever we go. This time we went to Johnny Como's Coffee and Cupcake. I must say we were a little disappointed. Cupcakes were tasty but small in size and large in price. The establishment was very retro, with lots of 50's decor. They say they open at 9:30 but by the time they opened the doors and allowed us to order, it was close to 9:40. Just seemed a little unorganized.
Maybe we watch a little to much Cupcake Wars, but to make it fair so that everyone gets a taste of all of them, we cut each cake into 4. It's actually comical watching BooChicken. He nibbles the cake, lets me know his thoughts (dry, crumbly, wet...) then the icing and if he feels it is deserved, the last bite with cake and icing together!
After 7 years of teaching full time, I was able to quit teaching and work full time from home! I love that I can spend so much time with my family. No more missed life events, even the little ones. Pink Zebra has changed my life. Now, I help others create their own strong economy allowing them to work from home, pay off debt and follow their dreams.
