Weekend Review

A little late for a weekend review, huh?

We've had a busy couple of days.  But that's ok.  I took photos.  Lots of photos. 
Elizabeth and William wanted to take "Expedition" chickens to the fair this year.  After pouring over photo after photo of chickens on the chicken website, they finally decided. Elizabeth wanted "Red Moderns", and William settled on "Red Frizzles". I ordered them through our local feed store and they arrived last Friday. For our fair you need to display a male/female pair. I ordered 6 of each kind hoping to get some of both genders, and allowing for unexpected deaths...

None of William's made it to the feed store.

As cute as it was watching this little guy kicking his feet in the air, I should have taken it as an omen.

Elizabeth's six were dead by Sunday evening.

Saturday morning was Elizabeth and William's first soccer game of the season.

Elizabeth and William are on the same team this year.  Elizabeth is not so cracked up about it, but it is so nice for me.  I don't have to juggle two different practice schedules, and at game time, Ryan and I can sit and watch both of them for the whole time. SO much nicer.

After all the rain we've gotten, the field was pretty wet and the kids fell often, but I don't think they noticed.

Saturday afternoon Ryan's parents arrived for a visit.  They are on their way home to Michigan after spending the winter in Florida.  The three older kids had fun taking turns sleeping in their new RV!

Saturday evening we celebrated Isabelle's 5th birthday! (with a few friends!)

Elizabeth made the cake and it turned out really cute.   Isabelle was happy with it.  Until later, when she said: "I wish I had a horsey cake instead.".  Brother.

I love this picture!

After opening this box with four sets of princess shoes, they were discussing who was going to wear what!

The decision:  Pink Cinderella on Grace, yellow Belle on Isabelle, and red/blue Snow White on Emma.
Girls after my own heart.

Mommy and Daddy with our little Princess.

My "good idea" party activity.  An egg hunt.  William had a blast filling the eggs and hiding them in the yard before the party, and all the "big" kids helped the "little" kids find them!  Everyone got to take home a fun box of candy!

Sunday we took a nice long walk, Isabelle rode her new bike almost the entire time - over 3 miles!

Isabelle, Jackson and I all got sunburned.  Grr.  I forget sunscreen for my pale little babies.

Sunday evening the kids had fun with Isabelle's new bubble machine!

I can't stop giggling about the chicks. Not because I have not heart but because that kind of stuff totally happened to me....
