Bloody Cornhole

We decided this weekend that we weren’t going to over schedule ourselves.  We were going to relax.  Yep, that’s right.  Sit. Around. And. Do. Nothing.

So Friday night we got a babysitter and went to dinner for a good friend’s birthday at Sal’s Italian Chophouse (awesome!) in Lexington, then we went to the movies and saw Eagle Eye (great action flick…so what if it’s unrealistic!).

Saturday we went to a neighborhood garage sale in a nice part of Lexington, lunch at Old Chicago (best pizza I’ve ever had), and then ACTUALLY RELAXED the rest of the day.

Sunday we attended the 9:00 am service at church.  Then I filmed the 10:30 am service for our Sunday morning TV broadcast while Ash went to the grocery store with the kids.  Then we went home for naps and to make our dish to pass for the pig roast and cornhole tournament at church that afternoon.

Ash and I were going to play in the tournament while the kids were in the church’s childcare program.  We figured there would be childcare because they had it last year.  Well, to make a long story short, there was no childcare, so I decided to sit out the tournament and let Ash play with one of the teenagers who didn’t have a partner.

A few minutes into the first game, Ethan fell and scraped both knees on the pavement.  I was busy comforting him, and didn’t realize that one of his knees was bleeding fairly significantly.  By the time the tournament was wrapping up and they were starting to serve dinner (about 2.5 hours later), Ethan was still screaming, my T-shirt was covered in his blood, and we were in the car headed home.

Once the DVD started in the van, Ethan was fine.  I hope the pig tasted good.  We had Sonic on the way home.

Relaxing, huh?

  1. That doesn’t sound like a sit around and do nothing weekend to me. Sounds like fun (except the blood part) but not uneventful

  2. It wasn’t relaxing at all, but we did have fun. It was actually a pretty lazy weekend for us. We are really over scheduled.
