Weekend Report

We walked down to town yesterday, which is a good 6 km walk. It was a sunny day, and the boys did pretty well. Only minor whining about tired legs and a few 'are we there yet' disturbed an otherwise perfectly family oriented, healthy outdoor weekend activity.

Giddy with our parental awesomeness and ability to ensure our children's physical well-being and plenty of fresh air and exercise, we promptly treated the boys to McDonald's for lunch.

We wouldn't want to overdo the healthy lifestyle.

Or risk a major culture shock when the boys return to Canada in just a few short weeks.

Old habits die hard, fortunately, and I'm happy to report that the Norwegian chicken nuggets and fries are up to Canadian standards.



Good thing, that - considering the $60 we paid for four combos.

Today, my sister and four of our boys went to see Horton Saves a Who. The young'uns enjoyed it, the older ones gave it a 2.5 out of 10.

My sister and I just watched the minutes tick by. Veeeeeeery slowly.

It was raining and miserable as we came out of the theatre. While driving up towards the house again, we noticed that the cars heading down towards town were covered in white stuff. And sure enough, it was snowing like crazy as we arrived home.

Which pretty much confirms my suspicion that Mother Nature didn't get my memo last week.

So in lieu of something sunny and spring-like to show off, I give you the following:



Is there anything cuter than a baby bum in jeans?

No - there certainly is NOT anything cuter in the whole wide world than a baby bum in jeans! Sweet!

Jenn @ Juggling Life said...

Not much.

$60 for McDonalds? Are you kidding me? Good grief.

Give me some of that baby!

Dawn said...

Is all food in Norway that expensive? That is a very cute photo of the baby in blue jeans. Have a great day.

Beth said...

$60??? Ack!!!

What happened to the dollar menu?

Karen MEG said...

Aww, that little bum is the cutest!
Glad that the nuggets passed the test. I know in some spots in Europe, didn't really taste the same. If that's fast food, I don't want to know how much fine dining costs!

Beck said...

Wait... SIXTY DOLLARS? FOR MCDONALDS? ACK.

Laura said...

Yes....little bums in Levi's are so frigging cute!!!!

ALM said...

Wow, imagine a place where you pay what McDonalds is actually worth! I always thought we paid way way too little for it here in the US...

:)

Love the jeans!

Victoria said...

Aw, cutie patootie. *grin*

My kids would likely agree with the 2.5 rating on Horton. They much preferred Nim's Island today. =)

More snow? Bleck. Come to the southern US, sweetie. 'Tis already spring and green here. =)

Kellan said...

I can't believe how much that McDonalds cost - WOW!!! I'm sorry you didn't like the movie - I really liked it!

Sounds like you had a good weekend - see you soon - Kellan

The only thing cuter than a baby bum in jeans is a naked baby bum! He is SOOOOO adorable!

And $60 for 4? Wow!

Jennifer said...

$60?! What the hell?

I thought Horton was only okay until the end. The end had me in tears and then I loved it.

Awww. Baby jeans!

Beth from the Funny Farm said...

Have a safe trip home!

We all loved HHAW!

Cathy said...

Whoa -- still reeling from the $60 lunch!!

But that is one adorable baby.

Stomper Girl said...

That baby in jeans is really cute. but $60 for junk food? i take it you and mike rarely go out for a splashy meal!!

Casdok said...

No!!! :)

MadMad said...

Oh, you're funny! The McDonald's thing had me laughing out loud (and the Horton thing)! But no, there is nothing better than a baby bum in jeans!

Mighty Morphin' Mama said...

How cute is he?! I guess I am best to wait til Horton is on video than drag my big boys there. Thanks for the review;)

Robyn said...

Holy cow on the cost of Mickey Dees!!! I nearly lost it at 60 bucks.

I hope you made up for it with the sale of the trampoline. :)

That kid has more than just jean butt going for him. I love his shaggy hair and his "Just chillin'" eyes.

I concur with the others that $60 at McD's is just insane. Beef flavored product just shouldn't cost that much.

Candy said...

I think you may have just cured the obesity problem in the USA. If a family of four had to pay $60 to eat at McDonald's, they'd all be eating fruit salads and grilled chicken breasts instead.

By the way, are the boys excited to be going home?

the dragonfly said...

Glad you had a good weekend...but are you as sick of snow as I am? *sigh*

Cute baby! :)

kim-d said...

I love jean-clad baby butts--so cute! What I think is a crime is the $60 for McDonald's. Oh my! That, I guess, would be a reason NOT to stay in Norway, huh? Well, and the snow, and more snow, and more snow...HAHAHA!

carrie said...

You crack me up.

And no, nothing is cuter than that!

Steph said...

I'm stuck on the $60 McD's meal.... Adorable pic of the baby! So cute!!

We liked Horton. :)

Kathryn said...

Seriously? $60 for McDonalds? ACK!!!!

Gina said...

So cute, that guy!

And ouch, that sixty must have hurt a bit!

Amy said...

Your post is about two things which I love - McDonald's and baby bums! =)
