This Weekend

What a weekend! The hubby worked nights all weekend, which meant I was in charge of bedtime by myself. Whew! I definitely think it's good once and a while to do it on my own because it definitely makes me thankful when I have the help! I don't know how single parents do it...or you men and women whose spouses are in the military. You are seriously my hero. Sabrina, I'm talking to you!

On Saturday morning, we let the kids play in the backyard. We were having our house appraised and the guy needed to walk around the house - so we thought it'd be best if we got the kids out of the house. Connor loved the swings (in fact, for the rest of the day all I heard about was, "Mama, I go on the slide? Please? Please?") When the appraiser left, we went shopping for groceries and a few new articles of clothing for me. I bought my first skirt post having four babies. My legs are SOO white, it's unbelievable (last summer I was majorly pregnant with twins and on bed rest...then when I had the babies I couldn't swim because of the c-section...so it's been a while since my legs have seen the sun). I've been looking for a dress to wear to the hubby's graduation and I can't find anything. Eeek! The kids went down for a nap and 12:30 and two of the three didn't wake up until 4:30. I went into their rooms about 10 times to check to make sure they were okay! A four hour nap? That's amazing!

On Sunday we went to a barbecue hosted by the hubby's work for employees and their families. They had footballs, Frisbees, beach balls, badminton, a baseball bat & ball...and it was at a park with a million slides. Connor ran and ran and ran. It was the perfect way to wear him out for a good, long nap. The babies weren't quite as thrilled with the 90 degree weather. My camera was broken so I didn't get a single photo. We came home afterwards, took a nap, and then I headed right back out to my mom's house to take the kids in the pool for the first time. It was Aiden and Isabella's first time in the pool ever!! Mr. Howard wasn't with us because he was working.

Hope your weekend was filled with joy. My heart has been so heavy reading all the stories of the moms who've lost children. I want you to know I'm praying for all you moms.

It looks like a lot of fun. My legs are so white also I look translucent LOL. It has made me sad to read all the grieving mommies blogs also. I am really thankful to have found each other, having support is so very important. Your sweet kids are so cute,I love the sunglasses. Hugs

Looks like so much fun! I love fun weekends like that with my foster kids. My legs were also incredibly white until recently when I've been working in the garden so much.

I feel the same about reading all the stories. I hate that we are all in this together, but also am comforted that I'm not alone. Your babies are all just too cute! And I love that we both have a Cole and Aidan ;)
