I admit that the title of this post is a bit deceiving, but let me explain. The truth is that it was a great weekend. Cindy went to spend the weekend with her mother for a well deserved weekend of pampering. They did all sorts of fun stuff. While they were having a girl’s weekend, Daniel, Luke, and I had a fun boy’s weekend at our house. Our Friday night was the highlight, and it explains the title of this post.
On Friday, we had a little party. First, we went to Captain D’s for the fishy part of our weekend. We do not usually go to Captain D’s because it is a seafood restaurant, and Cindy is allergic to fish. So going to a seafood place is a treat. Daniel really likes fish and shrimp (he quickly finished his plate and ate half of mine – he’s like a walking diet plan). Luke really likes french-fries (no surprise there). Between the three of us, we ate a lot of food.
Next on our Friday night agenda was movie night. This was the Despicable part of our weekend. We popped popcorn and settled in to watch Despicable Me. It was a cute movie, full of humor. The little ‘minions’ were hilarious. There was humor for adults and kids. There was, unfortunately, some bathroom humor mixed in as well . While I do not see the value in that kind of humor, Daniel absolutely loved the fact that they used the word, “fart.” Other than that, though, it was a good movie that featured a character transitioning from bad to good as he experienced being loved for the first time in his life.
After the movie, it was time for the tent part of the weekend. I built a simple tent in the den using four dining room chairs, c-clamps, and a bed sheet. It may have been simple, but the kids loved it. They insisted that we leave the tent up until mommy could come home to see it.
We had a lot of fun on our Despicable, Tent-filled, Fishy Weekend, but we were all glad to get mommy back!
