Weekend Fun

I am always amazed at how busy our weekends can be. And our kids are still little! I can't imagine what life will be like in 10 years when everyone is off to some camp or other, work, out with friends, etc. It was a great weekend though.

Lyndsi had her spring dance recital on Friday night and did a beautiful job. I am so proud of her and how much she has grown as a dancer, performer and kid by taking dance. She had a wonderful teacher who definitely rubbed off a lot of her gracefulness on these sweet little 6 year olds. They danced to "Somewhere Over the Rainbow" and I am going to link the video as soon as we get it online

We also took a trip to the cabin on Saturday. Jeff's dad has added both a zip line and a rope swing. The kids were completely entertained watching their crazy uncle Neal ride it upside down and backwards. (The guy is part monkey and part cat, I swear.) After watching Grandpa and Dad swing a few times on the rope, they decided to try it, with help of course. (Remember, these are the kids who were nervous on just about everything at Disneyland.) Then, out of the blue, McKay wants to try it on his own and then Lyndsi did. They loved it! In fact, they enjoyed it so much Grandpa took them back 2 different times during the day to swing some more (after the first time).

Part of why we went to the cabin was because of my niece's Gabby's blessing, which meant cousins!! I was pretty lazy this weekend with my camera, so no pictures of the blessing festivities (I'll have to bum some of my in-laws.) I did get a cute on of Sophie holding my other niece, Tes. All of a sudden, Sophie loves babies and wanted to hold and play with them as much as she could.
And, last but not least-Fathers' Day! It kinda got overshadowed by the cabin and blessing, but we still love Jeff lots. We got home a little earlier than planned so we grilled some chicken and had leftover salads from the afternoon and opened presents (a couple of movies and a new polo shirt from the family, a placemat from McKay that he made and a soccer key chain from Lyndsi). After the kids went to bed, we turned on Hitchcock's "North by Northwest" (one of his gifts). McKay asked him this morning if it was still Fathers' day and was sad when Jeff told him it was only 1 day. McKay proceeded to smother him with kisses all morning. I think he had a good Fathers' day!

Lyndsi is so photogenic and looks adorable in her dance outfit.
