Cold Front

It has finally cooled off and we are venturing into the great outdoors again!  This weekend we took the kids to Tanyard Creek nature trail for a little hike.  It is usually so nice and green there, but everything was dry and brown!  Most of the water was dried up too.  I kept Ellie going by making a Dora type game out of the hike (where are we going?...clap clap the waterfall) over and over again.  It was slightly desperate at times, but I DID NOT want to have to carry her!  The kids weren't able to swim because of the water being so low, but we had a good time and are grateful for the nice weather!

I really wish they made these backpack carriers in adult sizes
B is a strong guy and I think he could carry me.  Oh, all the
places we could go.  ;)

One of the kids took this pic of baby R.  I think it is a pretty
shot of his big blue eyes.
We signed M up for flag football last week, so the boys worked on some drills this weekend.  M has never played football, but we hear at this age it is just a chaotic mess of running screaming kids.  He mastered running, screaming, and chaos a long time ago so he should do great!  Haha.

The taters got a new sprinkler from Nanny Sheila this weekend.  They spent a little time tonight running through it.  It is always more fun to run through sprinkler a) without a shirt on  b) while wearing a chalk smock! 

M and E were freezing after the sprinkler and went straight in for a hot bubble bath. The way they were acting I'm surprised they didn't ask for cocoa!

Talk to ya soon,
