it is storming like crazy outside...great to have free water for the grass...not such a great day to grocery shop with a toddler!:)
anyway, how was your weekend?
we have not had this mellow of a weekend in a loooong time!
i think it had to do with how little soccer we had...but shhhhh don't tell my soccer lovin' crew:)
saturday we had practice in the morning and then janey went horseback riding with her girl scout troop. i didn't go along on this trip so i don't have any pictures, but she had a wonderful time! we have heard lots of stories about "scooter" not being a very good listener and going backwards when she pulled the reins and said "whoa!" funny! i think i might have ridden the same horse before:) horses are beautiful creatures for sure, i love watching them and secretariat is one of my favorite movies, but not such a fan of actually riding one if you know what i mean. janey was a bit nervous too, but overcame her fears and went for it...that i love!
saturday night we had friends over for sno cones and tried to play outside but it was just way too chilly. (i tried not to say cold...it is spring ya know!) we ended up warm inside watching roller coaster videos on youtube. good times i tell ya. we ended the evening with an early bedtime for the girls and mission impossible: ghost protocol for us.:)
sunday we had no soccer. yes you heard that right...NO SOCCER! we should have gotten up and gone to church, but we all needed a good sleep in day. (when i say sleep in you know that means 7 for dave and i right??!!) riley didn't come down till after 9!!! i guess she needed it the most. we had a late breakfast and then went to lowes for paint ideas for riley's 10 year old room re-do. we found the perfect color and she is thrilled!!!
the rest of the day was filled with playing, homework and little to-do's. i even managed one big to-do!! yes, organizing our paperwork into our new filing cabinet downstairs can now be officially crossed off the BIG to-do list! wow that feels good!:) slow and steady right....?
as i was taking the only few pictures of the weekend on sunday evening i said to dave "goodness we do basically the same thing every weekend don't we....he said "ya play with the kids and eat pizza!" are you tired of pizza pics yet???
the girls like to have a pizza picnic and watch one of their favorite backyardigans episodes on pizza night...chichen-itza pizza. i'll spare you the details, but it involves pizza, cheer leading and college fight songs. they love it. (and we love that show too...we have countless discussions about the different genres of music, which is our fav, and which character appears the most...we have analyzed every episode i think, i can't tell you how much i love my "big girls" watching "little girl" shows!!)
dave made two of my faves this time...can you say "lunch this week??"
when janey had dinner at mcdonalds with her troop on saturday night she saw 2 couples heading in for prom date dinner. she was fascinating by that and "pretended prom" all evening on sunday. daddy was of course her date of choice.
she dressed up in my dresses, had a clip on corsage and all.
funny, funny girl my janey brooke.
riley made the starter for friendship bread with her girl scout troop and sunday we finally got to make the bread. have you ever had it? it really is super yummy but i am secretly ready to have that big ziplock of bubbling fermenting stuff off my kitchen counter!!:) is that wrong?? but i am thankful for a yummy breakfast this morning!
hope you had a wonderful weekend.
maybe you had pizza, danced for prom and shook some pom-poms too?!?!:)
have a happy day,
1. creative play
2. the smell of baking bread
3. green grass
4. healthy bodies
