Weekend in Review

We had a fun filled weekend with lots of sunshine and yard work. Saturday was B's last swim lesson for the quarter. He has thoroughly enjoyed these classes. I kind of want a break, but at the same time it's hard to walk away from something I know he enjoys so much and also keeps him acclimated to the water and teaches him skills that will help should he ever (God forbid) be in a situation that he needs to know how to at least hold on to the side of the pool.We'll see where I end up on the decision.

Saturday afternoon Drew worked on the front flower bed, while I spent about an hour in the backyard with B in the new pool he got. I think I made a mistake getting the soft sided pool. I wasn't thinking about how B likes to pull up on things. Plus, Drew's worried the bottom will tear easily since it's so thin. We'll see how long it lasts. I got some good shots of B in the pool that I thought I'd share....

what is it about pools that make kids noses run so much? I know it's gross, but I love this picture regardless of the boogers.
This is the newest facial expression in B's repertoire. He does it at EVERYTHING. It's quite humorous!
Earlier this week I started teaching Brayden to say "touchdown!" and then throw your hands up with the touchdown sign. He caught on really quick and now will say "dadow!" and throw his hands up. LOVE it!
Look at the form! Future Hog QB in the making!
"The beach is over there ladies..."
This picture cracks me up. I told B to go and get his football, and he just kept pointing. And check out Toby... he wanted to get in the pool SO bad, but I wouldn't let him.

Saturday night Drew and I spent the night watching the much-acclaimed Avatar. I have to say, I don't really understand what all the hullaballoo was about. I mean, it was a good movie, but it wasn't one of those movies that I could see over and over again, which is what I had heard of people doing. I guess I can check it off my list of "must see's". The next one that we're planning on watching is Sherlock Holmes. 

Today we spent a majority of the day finishing up on the flower bed (I should say that Drew did most of that work) and cleaning our house. I seriously have a hard time getting the whole house clean at one time, but when I am able to actually do it I feel so accomplished and REFRESHED. There's just something about your ENTIRE house is clean. Am I the only one that feels this way? We finished up the night hanging out with friends at community group, watching all the kiddos play in the sprinkler. B man loved the sprinkler, so I might have to pull that one out this summer along with the pool :)

Hope everyone has a great week!
