Family Fun

We had a lot of fun with our family the other weekend. We found a really fun place for a picnic. We had gotten some little fishing nets that CAL-Ranch gave out for free that Drew and Madelyn wanted to test out. No such luck on the fish, but they were able to clean out some ponds of their dead fall leaves!

Jed has been doing some work out of town and Drew was given the responsibility of being the "Man of the House." I was reminded of this often..... He was in charge of Family Home Evening and also assigning prayers. Then one day I was helping Madelyn with something and Drew decided it was time for lunch. I told him I would get to it in a minute. I came out and found this: Drew had cooked us all lunch!! It was a quesadilla with two slices of american cheese inside. Drew got four slices and Madelyn and I got two apiece. And we got a Go-Gurt. I loved it. This same day I had been trying to figure out why Hannah was so upset. I said " I don't know what the matter is.." Madelyn took this opportunity and said "Let me tell you something about babies mom. Sometimes babies wake up...and their bottoms are sore." Also, Hannah had decided this day that she didn't want me to feed her anything, including milk. She would handle everything herself. I began to think, what is my role here again? My kids are so self-sufficient!...

This is us at the same picnic I talked about before. It was such a beautiful day! We had a blast.

On Memorial Day weekend our family went on a little excursion. We went to Jed's family's cabin. We went on a fun four-wheeler ride with the kids, Drew and Jed went fishing with no luck, and we just had a good time. It was great. When we got home and Jed was unloading all the gear, the kids were loading up the trailer with their own kind of "toys." I thought it was pretty cute. To sum everything up can I just say that we LOVE the sunshine?!!

I also just have to write this down before I forget. The kids said the funniest thing the other day.
Madelyn: Dad is it tomorrow?
Drew: No Sis, it's yesterday.
Kids do say the darndest things!
