Saturday, we were able to sleep in just a little before a big day of activities. I began with a 30 minute run + 40 minutes of a tabata circuit and made it the swim meet about 10 minutes after I was supposed to (oops?) Meanwhile, Brent, M, and B headed to March for Science Oklahoma
9:36am - near the OK state capitol building -- the March activities began with a bunch of fun science crafts and activities for the kids. It was also Earth Day thus the poster above.

By 10:30 the march was moving to the rally portion. They didn't stay much longer as it was too cold for our littler marchers. So they headed to the swim meet where Grammie and Granddaddy joined them for a little fun watching swimming and going out to get lunch during breaks in the action.
3:14pm - M and I go looking for a Unicorn Frappucino, but sadly they were all gone so hot chocolate and a little disappointment instead. We head to Lowes on the way home for some flowers to cheer our house up.
5:25pm - E and I snuggled in to watch a little Lilo & Stitch together. I needed a break from all the things that weren't working/stress. We had a super simple dinner, mostly prepared by M. (Note the new Marlin mom shirt).
6:58pm - The neighborhood boys come looking for B to play nerf guns. He still has on his team swimming suit and it is five hours after the meet.... I am prepping to leave for the ballet. B isn't sold on the going outside idea, but eventually does. M is playing with the girls down the street.
7pm - Ready for the Ballet - I have season tickets with Tracie and Nikki. The main piece tonight was a Midsummer Night's Dream (original choreography by the head of OKC Ballet). There was also a short piece around WWII. Walking in to the ballet, I saw Mason (B's swimming friend mentioned above) and his mom. We discovered that they have season tickets two seats down from mine so we've likely been sitting next to each other for years and not realized it! I thought the ballet was lovely. The costuming and scenery, in particular, were gorgeous. After the ballet, I headed home from some much needed additional food and an evening drink with Brent. We talked through the things that were still bothering me and headed to bed looking forward to a less busy Sunday.
