The Unexpected Saturday

I thought I had it all planned out. Yes Derek was on call, but he probably wouldn't get a phone call right? Right?? The plan was to have our Friday Pizza and maybe a movie followed with a lazy Saturday morning laying in bed with the fam, taking a walk, and then heading into the city for some eats. We really wanted to try the Yellow Dog Tavern with desert at the Banana Boat (which will probably be closing for the season shortly).

Here's what happened instead:

  • Derek got home late from work only to get a call that he had to go back into work. The result was that Alexis and Anders watched a movie with a bowl of popcorn for company.
  • The family did get their lazy morning with a walk.
  • Just as the family was heading home, the work phone rang again and back into work Derek went.
  • Anders had a nap, Alexis cleaned. 
  • Alexis and Derek decided to nix the city trip as the phone was not being a very nice house guest.
  • Instead it was borscht for lunch and leftovers for dinner...sorry, not much enthusiasm over here.
  • Entertainment: movies and a family cuddle, roasting marshmallows on the BBQ, and another walk where we watched the geese gather at the pond for the night. Oh, and good conversation which is always a plus.
All in all, the weekend so far was not what was expected, but Derek worked very had to make it special which is what I love about him. He even offered to make hot chocolate.Turned out to be a very nice family day!

My two loves.
