Last Weekend

I was just uploading some pictures from my camera and realized I never posted any from this past weekend with the kids.  I didn't take many because we really didn't do much...just a typical weekend. Friday night we ate at home.  Wyatt asked if he could prepare an appetizer for us so Doc let him.  We each (minus Anna, who doesn't like fruit) got a creatively cut strawberry.

I was actually pretty impressed with his design, but I think next time he needs to figure out how to do it with more than one strawberry!

After dinner the boys headed upstairs to play wii.  Anna brought down a kit she got for Christmas and was finally ready to take a look at it.  It's a kit for her to make her own needlepoint bracelets (at least I think it's needlepoint).  I was thrilled because this is the exact kind of thing I loved to do when I was her age.  I happily helped her get started.

It took her a few minutes to figure out which way to pull the thread through, but once she got the hang of it she was smooth sailing.

She didn't get the bracelet completely finished (she likes to take breaks) and it's all I can do not to go upstairs and finish it for her.  My ten-year-old self really wants to go get her kit and make my own!

Saturday morning was pretty low-key.  We took a long walk to a park and spent the morning playing.  Doc has recently joined a tennis league and had his first game on Saturday.  Since I had a bridal shower to attend, the kids went with him to cheer him on.  I can't wait to go watch him myself!

Sunday after church we stopped by my parents' house and ended up staying for pizza.  I had my camera with me and took this picture of Anna.

I really liked the lighting in the picture so I told her to go grab her brother so I could try to get a good one of them together.

I think the picture of them together turned out well but Doc doesn't like it.  He says they look like they're 18 and 19 years old.  While I don't think they look quite THAT old yet, I do agree that they're definitely growing up.

As if reading our minds, right after that picture was taken Anna jumped on her pogo stick to remind us that she's still just ten.  Phew!

That was about the extent of our weekend.  The kids had to go home early on Sunday so Doc and I spent the afternoon working in the yard.  We got a lot of work done, which is good, except that Monday morning my body hurt all over!  I guess I'm not in summer-yard-work shape quite yet.
