Making the Most of the Weekend!

We wanted to make the most of this weekend since this week we will have a new Murphy joining us!  We started out the weekend with a parade at Princeville's Heritage Days.  The kids even got to enjoy a few rides at their small carnival.  I can handle a small town carnival any day over the chaos (that's putting it nicely) of the same idea in my hometown.  The kids got cool balloon art and ice cream to top it off.  Justin and I enjoyed a Ribeye Sandwich.  Yummy!  We also managed some park time and went to a splash park in Chilicothe.  Now we are on the final countdown to Thursday and "Baby Butter" arriving.  Clayton is still sure it is a girl and Maddie that it is a boy.  Clayton has even picked out a name Isabella.  Yikes, not on our list and he said it doesn't matter, that is what he is going to call the baby if it is a girl!  We will continue to pack it in with Gymnastics, Storytime, Running Club, T-ball, etc until I have to go in Thursday morning!  We can't wait to meet this newest addition!

Clayton started his first season of T-ball in May.  They had some practices and are now having their games.  He loves it and has really been improving.  They get to try to hit the ball without the tee and then after 4 tries they use the tee.  I have been pretty impressed with the kids.  He looks adorable in his hat, t-shirt and pants.  Justin would kill me for saying that.  His strength is definitely throwing!  He is on the Dodgers this year.  Maddie has been great about going to the games.  We have done ice cream afterwards a couple of times which always sweetens the deal for her.  Just another reminder of how fast he is growing up!

Summer Fun

I am not complaining about the lack of heat this year, but it has put a damper on the kids pool time.  The had a blast in it yesterday afternoon though.  I think they were outside for 4 hours straight until we made them come in to shower and go to bed.  They are too funny in their goggles.  They put the little lawn table we have by the pool and were using it to jump off of.  I also threw in a ton of change for them to find.  I told them if they could tell me what the coins were they could keep them.  That kept them occupied for quite a while.  They love money.    Oh and of course we had to take an ice cream sandwhich break.  At least it wasn’t freeze pops.  I have to say I think my kids are averaging about 10 a day of those.  Oops!  That what being a kid and summer is all about though!
