Saturday Chris helped a guy out from the boat with some work on his car, so me and Carter hit the International Children's Festival. It was a nice time, but not so baby friendly. It was a beautiful day, nice to spend time outside, and nice to have a change of scene, but I have to tell you- being in a crown reminds me of how much I dislike Hampton Roads.
This place is over-populated, had crappy roads/tunnels/bridges, has low income housing projects to disperse the ghetto (the worst idea I have ever experienced-even if it sounds good in theory,) and some of the worst manners I have ever encountered. It is beautiful, but not a place I would choose to plant roots. Not to mention the 25% failure rate among kindergartners!-- I got a little off topic on that rant.
Sunday was a nice day too, so we spent a little time at the park. We headed home for Carter's nap time which turned into Carter and Chris nap time that I swear lasted FOREVER (picture me rolling my thumbs.) This was the only real down time we have had as a family in so long.
We really needed it, and are bracing ourselves for next week. I am back to work- four days, and Chris has a lovely 90 hour work week ahead of him (minimum.) Wednesday he will leave for duty, and he won't get liberty until sometime Friday afternoon. If it is anything like last Friday I assume he will be home by 8pm. Oh yeah, mad shout out to the dirt bags on the Chucky V that made us late for the circus. Hate you.
I guess I am just all full of negativity today. ;)
I uploaded tons of cute pics on winkflash. Check them out if you so desire.
