Fun Filled Weekend

Our little family had such a fun weekend! On Friday morning my friend Kathleen and I took our little ones to the Layton Park to feed the ducks and play at the park for a while. Feeding the ducks actually turned out to be a little traumatic for the kids because of the the geese who where getting a little too close for comfort. Then later that afternoon Kathleen and I loaded up Emma, Anna, Paul, and Logan and headed off to Scott's Grandpa's Cabin. It was such a nice break and so much fun to have a sleepover. We made delicious strawberry rhubarb pie, went for a nature walk, had a yummy dinner, played games, had great conversation, and had buttermilk pancakes with buttermilk syrup for breakfast in the morning. Our boys came over after the Fathers and Sons camping trip was over and had a bit more fun before we all had to head back to real life.
The fun continued today. After church we took advantage of the beautiful weather and went on a nice family walk with Scott's brothers Eric, Jake, and Kevin. Then we spent the rest of the day at Grandma and Grandpa's house (Scott's parents). All in all it was a very nice weekend filled with fun.

Alan coming down the slide at the park. He really wanted to bring his football to the park.

Emma, Anna, and Alan loved playing on the merry-go-round thing (is that what they are called?)
Logan enjoying the swing

Alan kept climbing out this thing, but then he couldn't reach the landing at the top so he would climb down.

My Favorite Kids Quote of the day:
Emma: "I want to sit on the head!" She said it to Eric while on our Sunday stroll. Apparently she wanted to ride on his shoulders. We all got a good laugh out of it.

Cute kids. Geese are always scary! They know just how to invade a kid's personal space!
