We had a busy weekend together.
Carter planted an earth "garden" with weeds and such from around the yard. He took great care in planting them just so and watering them. In fact, he inspired Jack to start one, too. Unfortunately, they are both in the middle of the yard. Fortunately, the grass is beyond dead in that spot so we won't have to worry about mowing them down.
Taylor found fun in an old broomstick. He would jump off the bench toward the other one and then start again.
Jack had to swing because he wasn't playing nicely with the other children. He's swinging with an attitude.
You know I'm feeling better here, because I'm jumping on the trampoline with the kids. Yes, that's me ... in my pajama bottoms. We had to get a new trampoline on Saturday because our old one dry-rotted.Joe opened a coconut for the kids. They hated the milk. (Can you blame them, though?) And they mostly hated the coconut. It was a novelty and they enjoyed the process.
And I love this picture of Taylor, my oldest. He never wants to have any fun. Ever. Well, at least not around us. He has fun with his friends and cousins, and sometimes with his brothers, but never expresses it around us. This picture was taken by accident. They were watching Joe open the coconut and I was snapping away.
I love weekends like this.
