This past weekend B went dog-sledding and camping with her Girl Scout troop. Thank God that B has troop leaders who love to camp because camping is just not my thing! (My idea of roughing it is staying at a Courtyard Marriott.) Despite the bitter cold B's troop had a great time I am happy to report.
Anyway, with B gone it was just me and my boys. We spend our time doing very manly things much to their happiness. First we went to Home Depot to pick out a paint and stain for M's desk. M might have gotten distracted by all the paint samples and come up with some crazy combo. As much as I enjoy my children's creativity, I stuck to my plan: navy blue paint for the legs and a cherry stain for the top of the desk.
When we went to have the paint mixed for us the nicest Home Depot employee invited M back to help mix the paint. M got to type on the computer, scan his paint can and watch as the computer added the needed colors to our can of paint. M loved every minute of it. He even asked for job!
After all that fun at Home Depot we were all hungry. We let the boys pick where we would dine and they picked a new burger-joint, MELT. To say that we all thought our dinner was amazing would be a major understatement!!! Plus the fact that the owners were super attentive to L's food allergies really helped us all safely enjoy our burgers. Secretly I am planning my next trip back. It was just so good!
A trip to the hardware store and juicy burgers for dinner was just the most perfect way to send time with my three favorite guys!
