Busy weekend...

The weekend started on Friday when we went to the beach for a few hours.  I told the kids that they had to leave me alone so I could get ready to go and this is what they decided to do. 

Jeremy had a baseball game Friday night and then again on Saturday morning.  We might as well have pitched a tent and stayed at the field.  Saturday was a hot day so when we got home from J's morning game around 10, we set up the pools in the front and for the first time this year, put up the tent and chilled on the front lawn most of the day with the George's and Jeremy's new buddy on his team, Matthew and his dad.  The kids ran back and forth from the front to the back and from the George's to our house.  Amelia sporting one of her many swimsuit changes on Saturday.

Jeremy had a team party on Saturday night so we got a sitter for the girls and headed out to spend some time with the other parents and Jeremy's teammates.  We were out until 10pm, which has to be the latest he's ever stayed up :)  Sunday morning was spent washing the car, playing outside, 6 loads of laundry (that was for me)...

Annie helped...

Amelia helped...

so did Mabel...

the boys went back and forth between playing outside, inside games and Jeremy even went with Jack to get a new turtle.  Fun stuff.

I met the newest member of our "South Bay" friends, Marley. She was born Friday morning and she's perfect.

Maybe we should have another one??!?! :)  Just kidding!

Once I got back from meeting Marley, we packed up and again, headed to the South Bay to a BBQ at Natalie and Matt's house.  Mommy and Auntie Jacqui had a group of friends when we were in 3rd/4th grade and Natalie is one of them and Amy is another.  Amy is in town with her family so we all got together.  Oh yeah, Amy's 9 month old daughter is named Skylar.  :)

You guys do so much fun family stuff!!! I'm so jealous! And I totally wish I had neighbors with a kids that like to play like Jack and Annie! The house next door to us sold and a 37 year old single female attorney bought it. Boo.

I'm back. Can't get enough of the Puppies Pups picture. It's so weirdly cool seeing a bunch of your friends kids lined up like that.
