almost perfect weekend

So we had a great weekend.  It was almost perfect but we were missing one family member.  We miss you Dad!  

Saturday we went shopping.  I know most people try to take as little as possible on an international move but we're not most people.  Saturday, I bought bedroom furniture!  I'm so excited.  I can't wait for it to get delivered - hopefully it makes it here before our house gets packed. 

We also ran a bunch of other errands and as a reward we went to the movies.  We saw Rio!  It was so good.  It was the perfect movie to get us excited about Brazil.  The kids loved it.  Joaquin kept dancing throughout the whole movie.  Stella kept asking if that's what Brazil really looks like.  Kinda - in a glamorized cartoony kind of way.  Isaac was happy that we saw Rio instead of Rango.  He was confused on what movie we were going to and very happy about the outcome.  After the kids choose Outback for dinner.  It was delicious.  I even had 2 people come and compliment the kids on how well behaved they were.  I don't think that's ever happened!  

Then Sunday our neighbors invited us over for a BBQ.  It was awesome.  The food was great.  The company even better and no clean up makes me happy. ;)

I took Gavin to Rango and he hated it and I thought it was sooo long for a kid movie. We'll have to take him to Rio.

Sounds like a great weekend to bad Dad couldn't have been there. Nice of the neighbors to invite you to dinner also. Sounds like the kids are excited about going to Brazil also.
