Not Me! Monday!

Woot, more Not Me! Monday!

This blog carnival was created by MckMama. You can head over to her blog to read what she and everyone else have not been doing this week.

What a crazy week it was, from job stresses, to workout challenges, to mini-vay-cays. Here is what we did NOT do this week:

We went to Cedar Point this weekend. We were NOT totally grossed out by the millions of little bugs that attacked us, flying into our nose, mouth and on our shirts.

I did NOT wear a billowy shirt that proceeded to fly up in the air, threatening to expose my nude colored bra. I did NOT have to hold my shirt down the entire time on certain rides (hello Millenium Force!).

The park was NOT so blessedly empty that the longest wait we had was a half an hour. (!!)

We are NOT getting too old for some of the rides that are a little spinny (cough ahem, RAPTOR).

Overall, besides the bugs and the billowy shirt, we had a blast. The funniest thing is that we did NOT spend most of the time scoping out rides for the kids. (Verdict- dude! A million things for the little ones to do! We are hopefully taking Drew and maybe Jacob this year.)

We did NOT forget to look at see what parking quadrant we were in and wander the parking lot for a half and hour. I did NOT go from giggling and calling myself a dummy to eventually coming close to breaking out into tears in my tired state looking for our car.

We did NOT totally sneak into Castaway Bay to see the indoor water park and compare to lovely Great Wolf Lodge. (Verdict? I think Castaway Bay looks like more fun- shocker!)

We did NOT drink lots of beers at the nicest TGIFridays I have ever been to. We would've stayed there all night, however we were so NOT exhausted, so we went back to our hotel.

At our hotel, we watched The Pursuit of Happyness, and Mr. Bee did NOT cry at the end, no NOT at all (wink, wink).


After driving 3 hours home, we got to pile the kids in the car and drive an hour to my nephew's fourth birthday. We were so NOT sick of driving at this point. Mr. Bee did NOT complain a million times about it, to which I told him "Suck it up!"

The kids had a blast. Here are some of the highlights.

Our children do NOT eat junk, no never at all!

This can NOT be the same child that was scared of dogs two weeks ago, right?

Max the dog was NOT very patient with Jacob, who now loves him some doggies!

It did NOT take two hours to get Drew into the bounce house, wherein he discovered....

He totally loved it!

Jacob the wild man did NOT run at full speed the entire party.

The kids did NOT love me screaming "Boo!" through the windows of the play house.

The Bubble machine was NOT also a hit as well!

I did NOT send my kids to school today completely dirty because we stayed too late last night for baths! It was NOT totally and completely worth it to see the smiles on their faces!
Totally NOT a great end to the weekend. Happy Birthday Nate-Nate!
