Sounds like I am not very social, maybe I'm not. But, I think it's good for our kids to get our undivided attention sometimes. We sure needed to do that seeing how we've added another adorable member to our clan.
So, that's what this weekend was about. We went to the park 3 times I believe. We all smelled like 3rd grade boys. You know, that dirt smell that's not quite B.O., but just windblown and a little sweat??? It was great!
We made sugar cookies and iced them and then ate them up before they even cooled. We searched for leaves and nuts and rocks, dug in the dirt and played catch with some fruit nut from a tree. Then we had a picnic, or attempted to do so...you know how Cooper is about sitting down to eat!This next one is of Cooper losing it when I told the boys we had to head home. If you haven't seen how well Cooper can fake cry, you've gotta check it out. A woman near by watched me take a picture of him and then said, "He's hurt isn't he?" I assured her he wasn't but was just putting on a show for us all!
Yesterday, we had the pleasure of seeing Mommy G again. It was so good to see her as we missed her terribly. We went to a park and let the boys play so that she could love on Sadie Skielar. We got some really great pictures, but you'll be glad to know I only took about 30 this time! The boys did great and were not hesitant at all about sharing their sister with Mommy G. I was a little concerned they might not understand or be afraid. They have no idea that she cannot change her mind. They made me so proud. When we had to pack up and leave Owen wanted to know if Mommy G could come with us. He wanted to know where she lived. He is so sensitive and wants to make sure everyone is okay. He made me melt!
Can you see what her onesie says? Isn't that adorable?!?! Thanks Aunt Jamie and Uncle Brent! The boys love showing off their baby sister! Notice Owen giving her a kiss? Too cute!
Blake took our family of 5 out to dinner afterwards. We had not attempted this yet with Sadie. It was so much fun. The boys had root beer floats for the first time and loved them!
We are getting into such a busy time of year and that's the only thing I dread about fall. So, please know that if I say no to you, it's not because I don't love you or want to be with you...it's because I have prayed all my life to be where I am today, I don't want to get so busy that I don't enjoy what God has blessed me with!
