We have had a great weekend. I was starting to get pretty burnt out with school, but I took this weekend and recharged my batteries, and it was SO great.

This girl wants to walk so badly she can't stand it:

She now says "uh-oh" when she or anyone else drops anything.

Franny-bug at the church carnival down the street:

Saturday afternoon I gave Craig break from the kids (much-needed, I'm sure!), and Atticus, Franny, and I went to the park. Atticus saw an adult softball game going on across the park, so of course we HAD to go. We were there less than 5 minutes when Atticus got hit with a foul ball!! I saw it coming but we were up on the bleachers and I had Franny in my lap, so there wasn't much I could do but cover their heads with my body and hope for the best. Lucky for us, it just caught Atticus on the ankle and didn't do much damage!

Also, every time the batter tossed the bat aside to run, Franny yelled "uh-oh!"

Today we were going to take the kids to the flying field to watch the radio-controlled airplanes, but it was too windy and there was no one flying. Instead, we crashed a 4th grade Pee-wee football game, and it was surprisingly fun. I had to end up dragging Atticus AND Craig away when it was time to go.

Tonight a church down the street was putting on a "block party" with face painting, games, a moon bounce, etc.

Sorry for the photo quality here. Taking pictures of kids while bouncing = not easy! (In case you can't tell, he's having the time of his life.)

Anyway, had some AWESOME quality family time and tomorrow it's back to the grind! :)

Can you believe this girl is going to be ONE soon?

This weekend was my mom's family's annual reunion at the lake. We spent Saturday night in my hometown, and Sunday morning while Franny-bug was taking her morning nap, Grandma and I took Atticus to the park.

I remember playing at this park as a kid. I love the old-school park equipment. The Doodle is really getting brave. He wanted to climb everything and go down the big slides himself.

Sweet Ladybug at the lake:

She wants to put EVERYTHING in her mouth, so keeping up with her wasn't easy. We finally put her in the pack 'n' play. She has never used it as a playpen, just for sleeping. I didn't know how she'd take it, but she absolutely LOVED it. She would pull up on the sides, fall down, and laugh and laugh. She thought it was her own little bounce house. Who knew!?
