Weekend Wrap-Up!

We had a nice weekend! Hope you did too! Friday night was super fun with a joint birthday party for Campbell and Christian - two of our favorite boys. They chose to have their party at the zoo and it was perfect. Huge jungle gym, pizza and doughnuts - cannot beat that! Evie and Henry both wanted to sit next to the birthday boys without realizing the birthday boys were in demand. Evie did squeeze in next to Christian. 

Saturday, we spent the day at the pool! Evie passed the swim test and we tried to coax Henry in the water. He's a little more leery ever since he fell in the pool - yikes! That was scary for me too! He will forget about that one day soon but we will keep getting him in the pool. It is so nice not being stuck at home for naps. Henry is quiet when tired - I can deal with quiet. We packed a lunch and enjoyed it pool side. Evie adores swimming and would stay all day if we let her. She thinks her swim bracelet is her key to every thing that she wants in life.  Carl grilled dinner and we caught some fireflies.

Sunday, Henry woke us up just in time for church. Our Rector retired recently and church is not the same. Summer is always a slow season with church attendance and a missing Rector brings the numbers even further down. We went to coffee hour but only a few people showed up - nice to have good conversations with a few people but sad to see people not building community. After lunch and grass mowing, we headed to the other pool - Evie passed the swim test at this pool too. YAY for Evie!!! We are so proud of our big girl! She had a ball sliding down the water slide,  jumping off the diving board and swimming in the designated "wrist band" area. Evie thinks she is big stuff now!

We headed over for the summer concert and it was a packed house. Henry and Evie love the concerts and eating alfresco.  It's a lot of work to get over there with food, drinks, chairs and a blanket but always worth it. Both of our kids love dancing and people watching!

That wraps up another wonderful weekend! Hope your week is off to a magnificent start. 


  1. We're so proud of Evie too! Wow! And I"m glad she got to sit next to Christian, per the usual birthday madness I barely laid eyes on the boys!

  2. Sounds like a great weekend! That is incredible that Evie is such a swimmer! I am eager to see how Avery will do this summer.
