Day of Rest

We had a wonderful long Labor Day weekend. It truly was a weekend of rest and relaxation for us.

Bobby and I were deep in conversation while the kids were "painting". We heard them giggling a little too joyfully and turned to see them looking like this:

Then we decide to try to make Bobby look like a rock star....
His parents just thought that he stuck his finger in a light socket. : )

Lastly, we had a "swimming party" at Grandma and Grandpa's house. Right after he had woken up, Chris started talking about how excited he was about the party. When I told him that it was just the family and we were just swimming, like we always do, he said that he thought we meant a real party with a cake and everything. Oh, and he wanted a swimming pool cake. Well, I had some blue cake decorating spray that I had bought for a birthday and never used, so I figured it might be kinda fun to try to make a cake look like a swimming pool. This is what we ended up with.

Hope you all had a great weekend too!


Chris is a soccer player now!

Emily and I cheered from the sidelines at his first practice.

Look at how tall he is! The kids on the team are 4 and 5 yrs. old -- but several of the ones in this line are in his K-5 class with him.

Hot and sweaty, but very very happy!
