Project 365: Week 19

Sunday, May 1, 2011

We started with a Seeds Family Worship song today in church. The kids got to play rhythm instruments. Of course, they pretty much all had stage fright and didn't do much playing. But it was fun anyhow.

Noah went home with his Mimi and Da after his party on Saturday and stayed all week long! Here is some of what he did while there. Thanks, Uncle Benjamin and Aunt Erin for including him!!

Visiting Aunt Erin's Pre-K classroom and loving all the class pets!

Fishing with Uncle Benjamin. His first catfish!

At the library, Atticus said, "Mommy, it's my fwend!" This little girl is there many weeks when we are. 

And today Sara came over and we had such a nice visit. Just hanging out. I'm looking forward to going to her house this summer to learn how to can! I'm holding you to it, Sara!!  :) Then my college roommate totally surprised me by dropping by. She and Sara literally passed each other in my doorway! I so enjoyed getting to catch up with her, especially since I only see her once a year at Family Camp.

Then Paul took the kids out for supper while I went to Women's Fellowship tonight.

Saylor likes to be the one to pay at the dance studio. Sort of like her love of checking out books at the library. Here she is standing in line. And looking all business-like.

After dance class we stopped at Barnes and Noble to pick up a birthday gift. The kids had the best time playing in the children's section. In fact, I had a tough time getting them to leave!

Today we went to the World Famous Armadillo Festival. Yes, we did. And, yes, I've been to it many times over. It just happens to be the festival of my home town. Yep. Good ol' armadillos. We celebrate 'em where I'm frum. Ha! You know what? I just Googled it and typed only as far as "world famous" and the very first suggested topic was "world famous armadillo festival." Who knew? (No website, though.)

Of course, we spent a small fortune (one of the few downsides to having more than, say, one or two kiddos), but it was loads of fun.

Cubbie, the greyhound, even came along.

Atticus said he wanted to ride this train!  :)

The pharaoh ship beckoned, but after sitting on the very back, Noah decided once was enough even for a thrill-seeker like him!

Oh, dear. Bunnies!

She's loved the carousel ever since Disney World. 

Mimi and all four kiddos rode the Dizzy Dragons.

Yup. That's my mom...talking to a biker. She went straight up and hugged him, in fact! Shocked my socks off!! Turns out my parents went to school with him. They actually have several friends who are part of this group of riders

So Atticus decided he'd join up.  ;)

"Ahhh...This is more like it," says the mommy.

Who can pass up ponies?!?

We definitely made some memories! And we enjoyed the beautiful weather, the time with family, and, unfortunately, some of the sweet treats on that "train!"

Y'all, I'm so behind these days. Somethin's gotta give. And I'm starting to think it's going to be dinner...uh-oh. Hope the rest of you linked up at Sara's are faring better.
