The weekend started off with a blessedly quiet Friday night. We ate a fish stick and tater tot dinner and went to bed!
The rain fell off and on making the skies very pretty.
That plan didn't work out either because when we drove back by for ice cream after lunch, there was an entire baseball team spilling out the door waiting for ice cream!
So we drove to Kingsburg to visit the ice cream shop owned by my friend Julie, Babycakes. It was a bummer that she wasn't working, but the ice cream was good!
Big kid got a taste of what his brother goes through having to sit through soccer games.
We slept in on Sunday morning, but once we were up and had breakfast, we got busy with the our planned garage/shed/backyard spring cleaning.
We have been planning to do this for a while for a couple of reasons: it needed it, Hudson's 1st Communion party will be held here in April and we want the yard to look nice, and the community cleanup day where the city hauls off all your junk is in nine days.
It seems like we always somehow miss the cleanup days, but we were smart and planned our time this year! Nothing like a party to get us to clean!
We have a backyard shed that stores all the Christmas decorations, a few bikes and a few tools. The garage had a bunch of rickety shelving that was storing tons of junk. Eric's plan was to remove the sturdy, nice shelves from the shed and put them in the garage. He wanted to get rid of the rickety shelves.
The first thing we did was pull everything off the rickety shelves and place it in the garage or start a huge trash pile for the city pick up.
We pulled the nice shelves out of the shed and put them in the garage. We whittled down all the crap and only put back what we use and need.
I put all the Christmas stuff back in the shed, and there is actually more space without the shelves. I can easily get to all the boxes without having to move tons of stuff. Yay!
One cool thing is that Eric sold the five rickety shelves and a few other things on Craig's List. It's always nice to make a few bucks!
Now we are tired! I do like having a productive weekend.
