We were all home together on Thursday, the day after Christmas, and had a pretty low key day. The kids played with their new toys, and we mostly spent time hanging out around the house.
On Friday Amy went to work, and I took Raylan and Kiddo out to Mom and Dad's house in Steiner Ranch. Raylan had gotten some new toys that had stayed out at Grandma and Papa's house so that he can play with them when he's out there. By Thursday he was already asking to play with his giant new marble run that was out at my parents' house. So on Friday we rolled out to Steiner Ranch to spend part of the day, to hang out with my parents and to play with the new toys.

On Saturday morning we all went to the grocery store and did some shopping together. We've recently been using the online grocery service and then just picking up the groceries, so it was fun for us to all go together to the store on a day when we actually had time to do it (and the cold, wet weather outside made grocery shopping sound like a good outing).
Saturday night we went to La Posada for dinner and had a nice time.
On Sunday morning we went to Dick Nichols Park. We brought Raylan's bike and Kiddo's balance bike. The kids played on the playground, rode around a bit, and played in the sand on the volleyball court. It was a nice tip to the park.

Later that evening I had band practice with the entire band. We had a fun time playing.
And that was the weekend.
here we go- wrapping up 2019!
