Weekend in Review

It was a busy Father's Day weekend. The boys got Daddy a couple of fun gifts. Aaron kept trying to tell Steve what he was getting. I guess that is one advantage to his not speaking quite clearly yet. Steve didn't have a clue what he was saying so the surprise was not spoiled.

The boys decorated Daddy's wrapping on the present themselves and were VERY proud.














And they can't wait to get outside and try the present that Daddy got.














Usually I get him some kind of fun Daddy tee shirt for Father's day and I couldn't resist this hat/shirt set when I saw it.














My brother's family was in town all week but we didn't get a chance to see them until this weekend. Saturday morning we met for picnic at the park and then some swimming at a little local beach. Once again, my sunscreen didn't "take" and I got quite severely burned along one of my armpits. Steve was sweet to run out and get me aloe at 10:00 Saturday night.

Princess Kira loved sharing the riding toys at the park with both Noah...














and Aaron.














Odin played harder in the water than I have seen him before. He had so much fun and even when he was shivering, he and Noah stayed in to play just a little bit longer.

The boys had fun playing with more cousins at Steve's brother's lake house today but unfortunately, my camera was AWOL. Maybe next weekend. For the most part the weather was beautiful and we seem to be getting lucky on the weekends between storms.

Of course, a fun evening HAS to end with ice cream with eyes in it.



















Looking at a busy week. We're babysitting two more days this week and I really need to get in touch with my doctor. I was quite uncomfortable all day and I think I may be ready to admit that we need to search further for the underlying causes of this aching.

Did anyone else hear this quote this weekend (or on Mother's Day)...

"Mommy, why can't there be a KID'S Day?"

I will share pictures from our other adventure Saturday night for Wordless Wednesday. Stay tuned...

Have a great Monday.

I'm glad you guys had a good weekend!
So what was the present? Couldn't quite read the box in the photo...

Oh yes - we had the whole 'when is kid day?' discussion tonight. Ron's answer? Halloween. Don't ask me why he picked that one... :)

Do you guys want to come over to see the kittens this week?

What a fun weekend. We had a fun Sunday - Saturday was mostly yardwork (Always fun...not!) Love the picts fo the kids, they look like they had a blast! To answer the when is kids day question...for my divas I would say that almost every day is kids day...but as Deb said, Halloween is also a good pick!

We went to a mother-daughter banquet the day before mother's day so Taylor kept telling everyone happy mother-daughter day. So in her mind she got hers, I guess that's one advantage of having girls.

What a great day! Glad to see your family had such a fun time -- and yep, Jacqui wanted to know when 'Kid's Day' was this year too. I told her 'every day except Mother's Day and Father's Day'. She scowled and told me 'I fink you're jess makin' stuff up.' :P
