Wonderful Weekend

Our friends haven't had a weekend away without their 3 kids in almost 2 years. That's just not good... for anybody. So this weekend, we got to have their 3 kids while they went on a mini vacation! Since we always have an extra boy or 2 around, that's not too unusual for us... but 2 of our 3 guests wore PINK... so it was extra fun for me!!!
They were almost too excited to go to sleep Friday night because they we're going to their first
football game on Saturday.
Colton got to carry the ball 3 times in the first half, and scored all 3 touch downs to show off for his friends. He said he'd score a touch down for each of them, and he did!
Don't his brother's all look impressed...
I was just excited that the wind was blowing hard .... after all... I haven't had too much practice getting a little girls hair looking "just so" like their mama does.
We met thier parents at the pumpkin patch on Sunday afternoon...

Then we took the boys for some batting practice...
Then I had to rush home and cook dinner so they could watch the Dodgers win!
After a wonderfully busy weekend, I'm ready to start my week so I can get some rest...
oh wait...
Now that I'm home schooling 3 of the boys instead of just 1... starting tomorrow...
I'll have to revisit that whole "rest" concept again... maybe sometime this summer.
but... oh how I love the weekends...

It was SO good to see you this weekend. You look beautiful as always and your boys are even cuter in person.

(Of course don't tell them I called them 'cute.')

That so nice to add a few more to your household for a few days for a couples time away. I always love a little pink from time to time.

Great pictures! Looks like you also had a fun weekend! Seven kids! Wow, you are brave! I'm sure your house must appear much more quiet now.

To join the chorus, "You're homeschooling 3 of them now?! What happened?"

Where do you find the time?

Sure looks like a great weekend. What a great game too! Great job on the TD's. I bet it was very exciting. Your weather looked beautiful.

I must say... those little girls look quite natural in your family picture....

Enjoy the beautiful autumn as my son Eli was looking over my shoulder practically drooling over your boys playing baseball. In. October! On. A. League. Lucky ducks.
