It started out rather well. After I came home from work, we decided to take the kids to see Kung Fu Panda. We met up with my wife’s friend and her daughter. The kids did better than expected. The boy got up a few times to goto the bathroom. The princess spent most of the time running around the movie theater. I really wanted to see how the movie was going to end, so I bribed the princess with some M & Ms. It worked, and I saw the end of the movie. :>
Later that evening, my wife’s friend offered to watch the kids so we can go to IKEA to get a kids loft bed. Of all the things we could do by ourselves and we go to IKEA . We decided it would be easier to make a decision about the furniture without the kids. We spent an hour deciding between two different loft beds and finally decide on one. My wife and I hurried through the store to get ready to check out. For the particular items we needed (the loft bed, the mattress, and a tent for the bed), we need to pick them up right before the register. It’s rather simple, your are given an aisle number and a bin number. The three items we came for were all out of stock. That’s great! This is not our day.
We went to pick up our kids and we stayed for dinner. They had some delicious BBQ chicken and fresh gucamole and chips. I wonder why my BBQ chicken does not come out like that? So I guess this is a positive.
We came back to our place and found some teenagers in the pool. That is not surprising for a Saturday night. They decided to vandalize the spa area by putting bubbles in the spa. This can cause damage to the filtration system. My wife asked them many questions and of course none of them live in the area. They hopped the fence out of the pool area and ran off to their car. They were quite rude with their responses to my wife. I can not believe teenagers today. I don’t mind if they want to use the pool but just keep it quiet and don’t vandalize it.
