On the way home from baseball on Sat, we drove past a yard sale in our neighbourhood. It looked like they had a few nice bikes for sale, so we stopped. A perfect bike for Kenna - a 21 speed in excellent condition - for $10. SOLD! Kenna got to ride the bike home all by herself, since we were driving:-) Needless to say, she's been loving it! I'm still on the lookout for "new" bikes for Brooks and Grey, I intend to use my Cookies/Cupcakes profits for extras like new bikes (all of theirs are too small for them). A few more yard sales and YAY, that would save me from buying new:-)
On Sunday, we had church, and then there was a church wide picnic afterwards. The weather was perfect, and we stayed until 3. Brian played a game of Ultimate Frisbee (a fave), he hasn't played in awhile, so that made his day. Then, he was given a few giftcards to the Outback restaurant from a subcontractor ('cause he always goes above and beyond:-), so we went there for dinner with friends, and then onto Rita's for dessert for gelato!
Monday was lawn-work, beach, dinner, BED!
|Beach - kids with Chae|
|Getting buried by Mr T|
|When Dads care more about building castles than kids do...|
|Rita's! The favourite flavour of the day was Swedish Fish|
|Baseball - the season will be over next week!|
|Some flower garden work!|
|A good helper. His chosen outfit cracked me up|
|He worked really hard|
|Burn pile is doing good, Mom|
|We planted some petunias in our mailbox garden - the strange (and dead) shrubby thing just had to go. At the base of the mailbox, we planted a dark burgundy plant in the front, and a climbing flowering vine on the back side.|
|The flowers on the climbing vine|
|We planted some tomato plants! I need to get the wire thingys so they can grow properly, but excited for our own vegetables!|
Kenna learned how to do something new on Monday. She had a few belly flop landings before she learned to tuck better and land properly:-) Here's a belly flop!
Here is Grey just being Grey
