Last weekend was packed.  Friday was a night with the neighbors.  There was ice cream to be shared!

Max was flirting with Jocelyn.  Matt was close by chaperoning.

And Lily is one of the three most beautiful girls in the neighborhood!

Aaliyah continues to get better at walking.  It must be that concrete.

On Saturday I participated in the PaceMaker 5000 on the Children’s team.  It was a 3K and I am happy to say that I finished it under an hour! 

After that was over I went home to pack up the family for an adventure to Mary Ellen’s farm.  Mary Ellen is my co-workers mom.  They own a beautiful horse named Crystal.  We wanted to see if the kids would actually get on the horse.  First we had lunch out of the back of the van!

And as you can tell by the pictures they all got on the horse.  We were very surprised but very pleased!  It couldn’t of been more than 15 seconds after Ethan got on with me that he said, “down please, done please.”  But at least he did it!

I think that I was the only one paying attention to this encounter.  Mary Ellen’s dog took a liking to Ethan.  It maybe had something to do with the peanut butter and jelly sandwich that he still had in his hand.

Thanks Lisa and Mary Ellen!


After the farm Lisa and I went to one of our volunteer’s weddings!  Gretchen you looked beautiful!

On to Sunday, a family bike ride in the morning which ended pretty quickly after the girls started screaming their heads off.  In the afternoon we were able to play volleyball with some friend’s at Fitz’s.  (Thanks for babysitting Sam and Tori!)  After volleyball the fun came to our house!

It started with this…
