Weekend Recap

Finally, a weekend where we didn't have to go to Muskegon!  Lately, we've been traveling to the Muskegon area (which is about an 45-60 minutes from Grand Rapids where we live) for wedding stuff, but since we finished our marriage counseling last Saturday, we didn't have to make the trip this weekend.

It was a pretty uneventful weekend, and that was definitely ok by me!  Friday night, we just hung out at home, caught up on the DVR, and watched the movie "This is 40."  It was a pretty good movie...glad I didn't pay the big bucks to go see it in the theaters, but it was decent.

While we were watching the movie, we heard what sounded like hail, so we went to check, and this is what we saw on our deck:

This was on April 19!  It really should not be snowing on April's supposed to be Spring!

I had to work Saturday afternoon/evening, so I got up early and did some stuff around the house before I had to leave for work.  Kevin grilled burgers for dinner when I got home and then we went and rented a couple movies.  We watched "Here Comes the Boom" and "Red Dawn."  They were both good.  Red Dawn was definitely more of a "guy" movie, but I liked it.


On Sunday, I went grocery shopping and then Kevin and I went for a walk/jog with Admiral.  Kevin's mom came over for an early dinner and to drop her dogs off.  We are watching them for a few days while she is away for work.  Admiral loves when they come over to play!  The rest of Sunday was spent watching baseball and just hanging out.

Like I said, a pretty uneventful weekend, but it was so nice, since our weekends have been jam packed lately....and it finally stopped raining for a couple of days, which should help the flooding situation in our area (hopefully).  The Grand Rapids area has been hit hard with flooding this past week.  You can read about it and check out pictures here.  Luckily, we haven't had any issues at our house, but as you can see from the pictures in that link, other people haven't been so lucky.

Hopefully this week brings some warmer weather, some sunshine, and some receding water levers in the local rivers!
