Labor Day Weekend

We had beautiful weather all weekend, which meant lots of time spent outside.  Jerry worked most of the weekend, so the kids and I just spent time at home. 

Kate enjoyed her first ride on the power wheels
Can you see the huge smile and tongue hanging out!  She LOVED it!

She also got to help Mom make cookies for the first time.

This is the grasshopper that consumed the boys- they were scared of it and did everything they could to make sure he died!  (they wanted me to take his picture:)

The boys were adamant about going swimming one last time this summer.  We waited until today thinking it would be the warmest day of the weekend.  Hayden jumped right in and tried to convince me it wasn't "that cold"  I made it to the 2nd stair and got out- it was freezing!  Jackson kept informing me he couldn't get in because "his wee wee was cold"  Hayden continued to swim for an hour- teeth chattering and all!

After an hour, they decided this was a much better way to enjoy the pool.

Cold or not- I'm glad Hayden was able to enjoy one last swim this summer.  I am so proud of how well he swims. He can now dive and pick up rings from the bottom of the 5 ft!  It is so much fun to watch him in the water.  Now if we can just get Jackson to enjoy it the same way- maybe next summer!
