This Past Weekend.. .. ..

Wowza, what a weekend. LOL. On Saturday the boys and I had a good time just relaxing around the house most of the day. I was trying to conserve energy for the night we had planned. We were going to ZooBoo at the Fresno Zoo that night!! They decorated the entire zoo and had a bunch of booths with candy for trick-or-treating. The boys had such a good time! They were pooped within an hour and a half or so and so we headed home early. The boys were asking by the time we left if we could PLEASE come back soon to see the animals (with it being night it was kinda hard to see them, lol). So we'll plan a zoo trip soon!!

Sunday we decided to go to Stockton to see my friend Cyn (hi Cyn!!) at her daughters softball tournament. The boys had so much fun. Logan sat around playing in the dirt with his cars most of the day. He had a nice film of dirt on him by the time we left and a super big grin to go with it!! Sooo cute. Jonah played with Cyn's son most of the time, playing football out behind the fields. It was great being outside with the boys, letting them run around and play. I had a great visit with Cyn and I love softball so it was so much fun watching the girls (who won Championships by the way! Whoohoo). It was a great Sunday afternoon!!

BUT.. .. .. then it turned on me. LOL. I can look back and laugh now, but not at the time. We went out to the car and it had been broken into. Mind you this is the second time in less than a year, probably the 7th or so time in the 10-years I've had the car. The stereo was gone and everything was ransacked. I couldn't tell that much else was gone until later that night when I realized Logan's Nintendo DS was in the backseat and that somehow they had broken the latch to the trunk and stolen - of all things - the boys costumes and candy from the night before. That broke my heart. I guess I felt like stealing the stereo was violating ME. Stealing the costumes was attacking my kids and - IMHO - takes a specail breed of low-life. Anywho, on Monday I went and got an estimate and will get the car fixed. AGAIN. It's become more of a headache than it's worth, but I'm finding it difficult to get a loan for a new(er) vehicle with the debts still on my credit from my past relationship. Until those are resolved I'm stuck with my car and the paranoia of another break in.. .. .. ugggggg.. .. ..

Really, though, it was a great weekend.. .. .. LOL.

Oh Jenn! I can't believe anyone would take a child's costume!! My stomach is just sick about it. So sorry about the DS-will the insurance cover it or is there no way to prove it was there?

I'm glad you can look back and laugh already. My Logan was still talking about the 'injustice' of it the next day.

As the Marketing Director for Fresno Chaffee Zoo I often read blogs about the Zoo as a way to see how we are doing. I'm glad your family enjoyed ZooBoo!

I also read about the boys costumes and candy being stolen, and about their desire to see more of the Zoo animals.

Can you give me a call at the Zoo -- 498-5936?
