First Day of Spring!

Last Friday was the first day of spring and it was a beautiful day. I decided to take the kids to the park and we all had a blast. We have never been to that park before, but we will definitely be back, it was awesome! It also has a Splash Pad that will be fun when it gets just a little bit warmer.

Silly boy, Max

I didn't think my kids were that deprived

Last night we had a very yummy dinner that included mashed potatoes and gravy. Max looked at his plate and asked "what is that stuff on my potatoes?" I about died! I couldn't believe he didn't know what gravy was. I have obviously done a diservice to my children if they don't know that gravy goes on mashed potatoes!!

First Soccer Games of the year

So, today was Jordyn and Max's first soccer games of the year. It was a fun, but VERY tiring day! Jordyn's game was at noon and then Max's was at 2. We went to Jordyn's game and then ran over to Costco and picked up a pizza from their eatery. We took it to the park and ate it there while waiting for Max's game to start. Max's game was so fun to watch. He is in Kindergarten so most of those kids don't have a clue what they are doing and they are hilarious. At one point Max was defending the goalie and I caught him laying down on the grass just chillin'. We took one of our soccer balls and Jake had fun playing with it. I was very surprised at how well he can kick the ball!

I am so mad at myself that I forgot my camera! I'll get some pics of next weeks game, hopefully!

Cool Jake

Jake and I went to WalMart this morning and when we pulled into the parking space and I started to get out Jake asked if he was going in. I told him, no you can't, you have to stay here! (that is a running joke between us and he thinks it's funny) When we got out and were walking into the store we were still joking around and I told him he was funny Jake. He looked and me and said, no, I'm Cool Jake!! He is so hilarious.
