Weekend Roundup

1 Week later and we are done painting the house. Friday night Ken finished the trimwork that needed to be done and I painted the shutters. We went with a light gray for the house and a brick red for the shutters and our front door. I'll post pictures when it is all done ( still have to do the door ).

Saturday was our first Saturday in about 10 weeks or so that we had absolutely nothing planned. Since basketball season is over no more waking early to get Gavin to the courts by 8am. So, did I get to sleep in? Of course not. Katelyn decided to give me a couple shout outs over the baby monitor around 530am. I ignored her of course. 6 am came and there she was again. This time I got up, changed her diaper, and snuggled with her on the couch for about 10 minutes. I put her back in her crib where she slept until about 730.

We spent the day doing a whole lot of nothing. Cleaned up Gavin's room which was a disaster. Played tea party with Katelyn for a while. She kept pouring me cups of tea from her tea pot. And you HAVE to drink them or she will shove the cup to your mouth. Same goes with the pretend food. You better eat it or risk a fork shoved your way!!

We all finally got dressed around 4pm! What a lazy day. Pizza for dinner and then Alexis came over to play with Gavin and Katelyn. Oh yeah, and this is how I found them after a very long time of being quiet:


Sunday morning we went to church with my inlaws while Ken headed off to work for a couple of hours. After church we went to my inlaws for lunch. Then the bad news came. Ken called to say that he had broken down about an hour and a half away. In MY car no less. He said the water pump broke.

So, off my father in law went to go rescue him. Meanwhile I went back home with the kids. And, I got a baby sitter lined up for Katelyn and I took Gavin to see the new Indiana Jones movie.

Wow, Harrison Ford has still got it. I loved the movie, Gavin loved the movie, and now I have a crush on Harrison Ford.

As for Memorial Day, the only plans we have are to spend some time outside with the sprinkler. Fun! Then we are eating at my dad's for dinner!

Hope everyone had a wonderful weekend and a great Memorial Day!!

What are those orange spots? I can't figure it out. We're going to the Indiana Jones movie Friday night for my birthday while the kids go to grandma's.

Sounds like a nice weekend--well, aside from your car breaking down!

We went to the DC zoo on Saturday and then went bowling today!!

WOW! You had a nice weekend! Glad that you were able to get your house painted so quickly. We tend to take FOREVER when it comes to those kind of things. Of course selling it helps move you along:)Bummer about the car though. I hope it doesn't end up being too much of a pain.

Sounds like a fun weekend.

Where's the picture of you and the family relaxing and running through the sprinkler in front of your newly painted house?? LOL

I love weekends when you can enjoy them! The colors of your house sound nice. We used to have a red house and when we sided went to tan and I so miss having the red. I did paint the door red though.

So Indiana Jones was good? We have been gearing up for it. We have a Drive In movie theater and it usually shows things about a week after they come out, so we will be seeing it soon. I have always thought Harrison Ford was handsome.
Glad to hear you had a good weekend!

How old is Alexis? What's with the dots?
