The week started off fabulous. I was so lucky to tag along with Phil to the Masters! One of his clients invited him and someone couldn't go. Phil asked if I could join. Bonus points for him! It took a lot of last minute scrambling to figure out child care, but it was totally worth it! We left after the MOPS leadership meeting and drove up to Augusta. We were greeted and welcomed into a home (people apparently rent out their houses for the week). So, Phil's client rented the whole cul-de-sac. We got settled then met in the game room of another house. We were wined and dined! There was a chef and even a poker dealer. I won a limited edition Masters hat by answering a question correctly (with some help, of course). The next morning we got up super early, had breakfast then took a shuttle to the Augusta National golf course. It was so beautiful. We raced to put our chairs down to save seats in a great spot- between the 16th and 17th hole, where we could watch them skip balls on the water. The weather was perfect. We got to walk around and see so much. It was so hilly, you don't notice that on TV. There are some tough shots! Geeze, golf is a hard sport! We got back late Tuesday. Wednesday morning I dashed around bringing dinners- one to the Cornells and meeting their first baby another to Erica to welcome her 4th baby! Abby's friend Abigail had a Birthday party on the playground (I love those!) Golf for Marly, dance for Ellie that evening. Early dinner at TCC. I tried so hard to eat better this week- but that leftover bag of jellybeans kept calling my name. I had to finally toss it. Thursday Voss and I ran the bridges. I forgot how long that run was. So pretty and so much to see, but Voss threw a tantrum because we ran out of time to go to the train park. Dance for Marly and golf for Ellie that afternoon. Our neighbor, Linda came to babysit last minute. Ellie had a piece of artwork chosen to be recognized in the Celebration of the Arts at the Times-Union center! We went downtown to see the show and a video of her artwork. Friday we rode bikes to school then the littles and I took the skyway to story time downtown (and got to see Ellie's artwork live). It was a successful play date. I've been reading my book club book and learning all about the history of Hollywood. Also, working on monogramming, sewing and Silouetting for party gifts (there's always a Birthday party!) We went to First Friday while the kids did the tennis party. I love that! Saturday morning I did cardio tennis. It was just Melanie and I and it kicked my butt! I took the kids to Argyle to meet up with one of Ellie's friends from school, Isabella. They invited us to swim at their neighborhood pool. It was a nice morning before the rain (and cold) came! Last night, Kasey invited us to the ExZOOberation. The rain was a bummer but we still had a great time! Too late, though! This morning was rough. We slept in and went to 10:30 mass. The kids were off today- maybe over tired? We went to E-street with the Freemans for lunch and a little hair of the dog. Phil took Marly and the littles to a Birthday party at Mellow. I took Ellie to see A Wrinkle in Time. I told her we could read the book then go see the movie. We did this for Wonder but it's already out of theaters. I had high hopes for a mother-daughter movie experience. Honestly she seemed a little ungrateful and entitled. So, we need to work on that. The movie was a bit strange, but good for a 3rd grader. The love theme is perfect for us, too. Home just in time for shower and family rosary. Cheers to early bedtime!
