This past weekend was a lot of fun! Mike was home a lot which is rare in the summer and he usually has to work on Memorial Day but didn't this year! To top it off, the weather was absolutely gorgeous so we got to spend a lot of time outside.
Friday the kids and I were out for a good part of the day. We met some friends at the park and then after they played forever we headed to a quiet spot for a picnic and playing in the creek.
On Saturday I finally got around to getting the little plastic pool out for the kids. They will play in that thing all day long. Mike got home from work early enough to do something in the evening and we headed to the park so the kids could ride their bikes around the parking lot. They are getting a lot better but Liza still falls off a lot (and is actually pretty funny about it.)
Cutest boy EVER!
Liza is such a girl.
Just another time falling off the bike. She screamed each time.
Sunday was a relaxing day. I did a newborn photo shoot and Mike and the kids stayed home and played.
Monday was a big day out for us. We went to the parade in the morning and met up with a bunch of friends.
After the parade we came home for about an hour to eat lunch, pack up and put on the sunscreen because we were going to the lake for the rest of the day. The lake was super crowded but still lots of fun. Liza was a little hesitant at first but it didn't take long until the kids were swimming just as good as they had been at the end of last summer.
After a few hours of swimming we went to find a shady spot to have our picnic dinner and watch the boats on the lake.
It was a really great weekend with my little family and I just have to say that I am soooo incredibly proud of my kids. Not one fight or meltdown or whine in all those times we were out over the weekend. They were amazing and so much fun to be with. I told Mike that I am looking forward to this summer because we are going to have loads of fun. We have put in years of hard work... disciplining and training... and now we will get to enjoy the fruits of our labor. I'm not saying that my kids will always be perfect... but the majority of the time they will be such a joy to do things with.
