First times

Sorry folks, ain't gonna share "those" first times, but wanted to share an awesome week end we had. 

Saturday after work we decided to hit the community pool like we do every night (when it's not raining that is) and I was very excited to see my son Gabriel swimming in deep waters and jumping too!! 
When we started going to the pool neither of my kids knew how to swim and while Michelle took about a week to master it, Gabriel took few months, but still I'm AMAZED by the progress he made!!! The dude didn't even want to get into water when he could touch with his tippy toes, just played safe in the kiddies part of the pool and now....he's a FISH and my daughter is a MERMAID

After the pool, we decided to go out for dinner. The kids wanted some fast food crappola while me and hubby wanted something nice. We ended up at Ruby Tuesday. 
 If you read my blog before, you probably read me saying that I would pay anything to see my son Gabriel eating a beef hamburger. $60 later, he decided to try the chop steak and found it delicious!!! That was a completely new food for him and with his sensory disorders is a huge step and the first time in 5 years!!!! WOOOHOOO. 

Sunday was another story. We woke up late but manage to catch the matinee at the theater to watch BRAVE. Can't wait for the DVD to come out as that is definitely a keeper! 

After that, we moved the fun to the bowling alley. We hadn't been bowling since Gabriel was 3 years old and my daughter just few months old, so it was definitely the first time for her.

Plus, I got to kick hubby's butt as I scored the most points.....and that's DEFINITELY a first! 

Also tried my very first Chobani yogurt...what can I say! I'm hooked! 

What amazing things you've done this past weekend?

What a perfect, fun family weekend! It is great that your kids love swimming. It is great exercise but also a safety thing too! I am glad your son tried something new. Kids never want to try new foods. Why is that? LOL. I hope to catch Brave in the theater. :)
