Sugar Shacking

Or should I say Suga Shacking. Last weekend was NH big Sugar Shack weekend. Hundreds ventured out and visited different Shacks all over the state. Of course most of these people went on Saturday when it was actually nice out. Well not us, Saturdays are still filled with Soccer and by the time we are done with Soccer there is no time for anything else. So we went out on Sunday, it was wet and cold but we had a blast!!! I was a little (okay a lot) unsure of what to expect. Ben was beyond excited to hit the road and the kids just wanted food. Before we even hit the 1st Shack we soon realised this was going to be a GREAT family day and we were all excited!!!! We had so much fun looking and exploring the shacks and tasting the different syrups they had. The kids thought it was the coolest thing ever to just be able to drink maple syrup. We had a great time.

After we ended up at a local smoke house that Ben has been wanting to try. We went, we tried, we cried. It was awful....no seriously it was bad. But we still left with huge smiles knowing that Dad was still the best BBQ'er ever! Another reason we feel he should open his own smoke house. I mean with the prices they charge how could we go wrong?

All in all it was a great weekend! Both boys won their games, both boys were stars on the field. They both came home with a few goals, some awesome goalie stops, and great assists. I got a girls night out (happy dance) family time and dinner with awesome friends. I was not ready for Monday morning to come

Beach day

Yes it is March still here in NE and Chloe and I have spent 2 days in a row down at the beach. We are having some pretty warm weather right now and we LOVE it! Chloe loves the beach, loves the sand, loves the water, loves the rocks, loves the sand filled snacks, loves it all but the bugs. Yesterday we took a little picnic just us girls down to the beach. We left both red and sweaty, its still too cold to go in the water for us. Today we went down the "main" beach in Hampton with some friends. It was so nice just visiting while the babies played. I forgot how easy it is with one child and when that one child just sits right in front of you and plays its wonderful! The boys would have never let me get away with sitting down at the beach at this age....heck they still don't let me sit down.

Chloe is now home napping before round 2. Yes the bags and truck and re-packed and we will be picking up the boys from school to head back down. They were both so sad yesterday when they found out Chloe went to the beach. Not only are they going today but with some "surprise" guests as well ;)

Hopefully everyone sits still long enough to snap a few photos :)

A helping hand

This has been a crazy off schedule week not only because Dad is gone but the kids have after school activities all week at the school. Its TV free (electronics too) at school. Noah started a new soccer class at Seacoast. This is great for him and he loves it however the timing couldn't be worse. His class goes till 5:30pm. Dinner is served here in the Molnar house around 5:15 on school days. I didn't get to showers and baths till 7pm last night..........I was a bit edgy. I feel like I have more errands then normal to get done this week after being gone all last week. And if I step foot into the grocery store one more time this week I might just scream. I refuse to eat out this week "just cause Dads gone." We are doing much better and eating healthier and I am really trying to stay on track but the odds are stacked against me right now. Chloe is a bit of a mess with the change in schedule and Dad not being here. The boys are great but remember that TV free week......well the 1st few days were an adjustment we will leave it at that. The tears have stopped and things are looking up. And please don't even get me started on the amount of homework that is stacking up on my table.

Is it Friday yet?

We are back

So many new things going on I can't believe its only been a week. Bryce got better but not before passing his illness onto Noah. Who is still not feeling better (it came back for round 2) We (the kids and I) spend the week at the Cape. Got a wonderful surprise visit from Aunt Amanda. We left and had no snow came home and have tons of it. Last session of indoor Soccer is almost here and Baseball is coming up fast. My big Zoo Fundraiser is right around the corner (ahhhhh). Kids have TV free week coming up at school which is only a big deal because that means a week full of after school activities. Noah starts ANOTHER soccer class this week going for the next 8 weeks. Which happens to fall right in time for bus drop off and ends about the start of dinner. So I have to plan that day out better. Plus trying to plan a few family vacations.

I just got home from a week away and I'm ready to leave it all behind again.
