Happy meal plan Monday! This weekend I experienced a first. It involved sharp blades hurdling through the air and a little competition.
We had a sibling night out (that also included cousins and significant others – it’s complicated), and we went ax throwing at the brand new Hatchet & Axe Co here in Lancaster County near the Rockvale Outlets.
I had never been ax-throwing before and had no previous experience from which to compare, but others said they far preferred Hatchet & Axe Co to the places they had been.
Once they assign your reserved lane they hang out and give you instructions as they see fit which was really nice.
Warning: woman wielding a sharp object, watch out.
My partner is either walking back in shame or with pride at his throw in this pic. Can’t quite tell.
Despite Tyler’s desperate attempt to subtract 30 from our scoreboard . . .
If you’re looking for a fun night out and you are local, then be sure to check out Hatchet & Axe Co!
After Hatchet & Axe, we went to Decades in downtown Lancaster. Decades is an old basketball stadium that has been turned into a bar, restaurant, bowling alley and arcade.
Clearly we got stuck at the basketball game.
Hmmm. Now we know how my sister really feels about my driving. And Tyler is auditioning for his next role as a mannequin.
Our kids had a fun overnight at MomMom and PopPops where they built this massive ship model.
We went picnic hopping on Sunday including Lily’s pre-k grad party. All of us parents were laughing trying to arrange our children for this picture because what would have taken us 2 hours to get this many 4/5 year olds to stand still took their teachers all of 5 minutes to do.
So much respect.
Speaking of these teachers, all 3 of my children have had Ms. Lacey and Ms. Kennedy, and I get a little teary-eyed to think this ends an era for now as we don’t know exactly how old our adopted son will be or when we will be able to bring him home yet.
This baby will be a kindergartner! Cue the tears. For some reason, this has hit me more than any of my other kids going to kindergarten. Not sure why.
Zach and I were cracking up hearing her teacher describe Lily to another parent (the same teacher Lily kicked on the first day of school). She likened Lily to a beautiful flower that you have to be careful with because it’s also covered in thorns.
She is the cutest little bundle with the sweetest heart, but when she has her mind set on something she is a formidable foe. Hahaha. We cannot thank her teachers enough. Pre-K has been her best year yet.
Grateful for old friends! These two have been besties since college football and now our daughters are in the same class.
A baby holding a baby. <sigh> So much cuteness. I hope you had a wonderful weekend as well!
