the weekend

I know I post about the weather a lot, apparently I'm a little obsessed. But lately it's been getting a little warmer, which we all know is like heaven to me. And with daylight savings it gets dark later so I'm just one happy camper. And even better, Jeremy was home all weekend. He works a lot of hours (not a complaint, just a statement) so on weekends I'm a little selfish and like to have him around. But, he's a mover and hates just sitting around. So our solution was to find something we could all do as a family and still be doing something. So we invested in this:
This was only the second time Jeremy's taken it out, and the first time for me and Alexis. It was still a little too cold to take Tyler, I didn't want him to end up with RSV again. But next time we go it should be warm enough for him, and I am soooo excited. Alexis loved it, though she would occasionally say, "stop driving so bumpy!" She hasn't learned the point of it yet.

It was a lot of fun, and we even found an old mine they've gated over. I'm afraid of heights so it terrified me (eventually I did walk out over it), but Jeremy and Alexis would drop rocks down the hole and listen to them drop.
Then later in the evening we ran errands together and had dinner and at the end of the day Alexis said how much she likes having dad around. The kids get a little bored of being around me all day and need some variety. Plus dad's more fun!

The next two weekends we'll be out of town (St. George then Las Vegas), which will be a lot of fun too. Anyone else do anything fun this weekend??

Looks like you had a blast...and sounds like it too! :) Soooo glad the weather is warming up and we can be outside half the day now. :) How was the park this morning?
Ummmm...we didn't really do anything fun. But, we did do something exciting. We started framing our basement Saturday. :) I like to go in and just admire it. It makes me very very excited! But, I do get to go to Idaho this weekend all by my self. So, that will be lots of fun for me. :)
Have a great weekend in St. George! :)

i avoided numerous responsibilities by going golfing. for some reason, that picture makes alexis's legs look as fake as a puppets.

It looks like she is standing over a worm hole - A giant worm hole! :) I must have read that blogg entry too recently, and am still a little traumatized by it myself! We had a "gunny sack" when I was younger (a pillow case with a scary monster face drawn on it). When we didn't clean up our toys, the gunny sack would come and eat them up...of course he would vomit them up in a week or so but it was a tactic that worked and has been forever etched in my mind!
