Let's get ready for the Weekend

The Weekend is here and rather than just throw out a bunch of events (Which I will do) I also want to share some ideas.

Cherish your time together:
This time that you have is a gift you will never have the exact same day again.
Be in the moment: When you leave the office for the weekend - Leave the office for the weekend (No cell phones for business and checking email) This is the time for you and your family.
Take pictures: Capture the moments and look back at them from time to time to share the times you have enjoyed together.
The Setting is just window dressing. The time you share together is the important part.
I have seen my daughter be just as happy taking a ride on her trike down to the playground and playing in the sandbox as she is when we have gone some place "special".

Let's go to the Movies: This weekend Halloween comes early with the Premier of Igor (PG)
A hilarious twist on the classic monster movie, Igor tells the story of one Igor who's sick of being a lowly lab assistant with a Yes Master's degree and dreams of becoming a scientist. When his cruel master kicks the bucket a week before (The reviews I have read have all been positive)
