This weekend the weather was so beautiful we did a bunch of fun stuff. I spent a lot of time in the afternoon pushing swings. This is one of my kids favorites. But the first thing we did was get Amelia's Bunk bed set up. I bought it clear back in September, from a friend, knowing we would need it eventually.... I kept it at her house till this weekend. We thought we would finally get it out of their way. Hayden won't be ready for a big girl bed for another 6 months or so but this gives Amelia time to get use to sleeping on the top bunk. She loves it! After the bed was all set up I left for a baptism and Larry and Ethan set to work on a Pinewood Derby car! Ethan had so much fun designing it and getting to use all the tools. He has used my saw before so this wasn't something new to him but very exciting anyway!
Ethan cutting out his Pinewood Derby car! I can't believe he is old enough for this. Just a year ago when I took him to watch one he was certain they weren't going to be doing this when he was 8! I assured him they would! Good thing somethings don't change!
Here are the kids doing some out door painting (my favorite place for it!) They had a lot of fun! In between putting coats of primer and paint on the Derby car Ethan joined the others for some painting. They love to do crafts, and projects and I thought it was a nice day to let them make a mess outside!
Hayden loves to be outside! She love swinging, throwing balls, just running around in the yard! She was in heaven this weekend and I know she will love summer! The main problem will be keeping her dry I think. She will want to climb in the wading pool every time she goes out the door. I am not sure what I will do about that. But I know it will be great for her! I love this picture. You can kind of see her post nap crazy hair, and pudgy cheeks!
