I sure wish the weekends were longer, you know? Dave's time at home is so precious after a busy week of work, so we try to maintain a family-focus on the weekends as often as possible. This weekend we invited one of Jonathan's friends from church to spend the night, which was a first for all of us, believe it or not! All three of the older boys ended up getting along pretty well, and we enjoyed having yet another boy in the house. Also, we took time to celebrate Benjamin's upcoming third birthday by going to Chuck E. Cheese in Lancaster. My parents were in Lancaster for a conference, so they met us there to help us eat pizza and watch the kids have fun. We were only there for an hour and a half, but for those of you who know Chuck E. Cheese, especially on a Saturday, it was long enough! Benjamin really liked his presents, especially the Hess monster truck from Mom-mom and Pop-pop! He's definitely all boy! We capped off the weekend today by enjoying yet another new, yummy recipe...Hearty Tuna Casserole. Dave and I really liked it; the boys tolerated it (too many "weird" veggies in it...you know, green onions and zucchini!). If you are interested in the recipe, let me know and I'll send it to you...it's definitely a few steps up from the tuna casserole you might remember as a child! So, all in all, it was a good weekend. I'll post photos of Benjamin's "party" later this week, so stay tuned!
