The Social Calendar...mostly dictated by Spencer

I jokingly say that if it weren't for Spencer's activities, I would have no social life--and looking at my photos from this weekend, I believe it is true!

Well, I guess Thursday night's dinner and wine tasting (Zeto!) with Laura doesn't count as Spencer's activities---but it *did* start the weekend off right! Zeto is unique because they have the wine shop, gourmet foods section, patio, and the vino-matic machines! You get a purchase card and you pre-load any dollar amount you want onto the card.  Then, they have 24 wines (8 wines in 3 machines) where you can buy a taste, a half glass or a whole glass.  Just insert your card, select the button and hold your glass!  Laura and I can confirm that a $10.00 card doesn't get you very far....

Friday night, III and I took Spencer and IV to the Friday Night Bush Hill activities which included the casting contest (our boys stink at that, although IV was interviewed and had his picture taken for the paper--look for it this Thursday!) and the Bike Rodeo. 
The Bike Rodeo was cute. They taught bike safety, helmet fitting, Spinz checked the bikes and then the kids rode through an obstacle course while a police officer observed their hand signals. IV couldn't have cared less, but my kiddo-- Mr. Spencer Rules and Regulations Alderin was *ALL* about that class!
Because the road was closed due to the festival, the bank parking lot at the end of the road was empty--so the boys hooked up with a few friends and a pick up game of soccer became the highlight of the entire evening. I got a drink from the Wet Whistle, listened to the band, and just enjoyed the pretty weather until it was time to go home.

Saturday morning started off with a soccer game....of course.  We lost 3-2 but the boys played hard and tough.  After soccer, we went for lunch and the afternoon Bush Hill festivities.  The boys did the expected amount of face painting, hair painting, silly bandz buying, junk food eating, etc.
Later that evening, we all met back at Nana and Boppa's for a team pool party and cookout. We had a great time sitting around after dinner and chatting with the parents and grandparents of the team and all the boys had a blast playing in the pool, eating burgers and hot dogs, watermelon, making sno-cones, playing games and being loud, rambunctious little boys!

Sunday was much easier..... I went shopping with Laura (Hello Sephora and Barnes and Nobles!) and Jimmy and Melissa took the boys to watch the girls soccer team play.  Later we all met up for dinner to celebrate Grandparent's Day with Nana and Boppa!
