The Young Men planned an incredibly fun Medieval activity a few weeks ago. The highlight for me was jousting with broomsticks on rolling trash bag carts. Epic.
The Young Women were in charge of the food, so we decided on this:
Another incredible highlight in March was having the Lunas move to Utah!!!! WE ARE SO HAPPY!!! It is wonderful, wonderful, wonderful to have more family here and for the kids to have cousins to play with.
I'm just realizing as I look back that March had a lot of highlights. I must have forgotten how exciting it was. I had a wonderful trip to Chicago with Anne and I wish we could do it twice a month all year long. I flew in Thursday night and we started the day Friday with bizarre Chinese massages. They would lift up our legs to at least a 45 degree angle and just completely drop them. Multiple times. Then they would pick up our arms and wiggle them like a worm. It was strange. The part where they actually massaged my back did feel very nice, though. It was really, really cold and windy on Friday so we spent most of the day hiding and only ventured out a couple of blocks in every direction. We did manage to walk like 20 minutes to the movie theater and then treated ourselves to deep dish pizza after.
Luckily, I made it home on Frontier. They are getting worse and worse! On the way out, the flight kept getting delayed for no reason and they charged a ridiculous amount if you ask for a cup of water while in flight. Also, they now charge $30 for you to bring a bag on the plane plus a minimum of $6 to get a reserved seat, which is a requirement for booking a flight. On the way home, their website went down so no one could check into their flights online or at the airport kiosks, meaning the line to check in at Chicago O'Hare was hundreds of people long and all of their flights were delayed and people were mad.
When I got home, Kyle and I had a really fun date night. We went to a painting class and butchered it a little, but had a lot of fun.
Alexa: "Mom, I love you, but sometimes you look kind of funny."
Granny: "Well, who wants to play Scooby Doo?" (Skip Bo)
Me: "Tyler, what's your favorite animal?"
Tyler: "A black jaguar."
Me: "Who is your favorite princess?"
Tyler: "A horse."
Me: "Where is your favorite place to hide?"
Tyler: "A crocodile."
I came home from work the other day and the kids were playing superheros. Alexa was "Belle with Elsa's ice powers," Tyler was "Captain American Batman with super shield power," and when I asked Alexa what my super power was she said that my power was "to twirl really fast and kill bad people." Be afraid, bad people. I will not hesitate to twirl really fast.
