Fun stuff

Happy  Monday! We’ve all been getting to do fun stuff around here. Spencer got to go to a play date at his friend Christopher’s house with his buds Stephen and Wade!

The boys got to to go a Barons game with Robert. Unfortunately it was unseasonably cold and rainy so not the best conditions. Despite having to wear their heavy coats and wait out a little rain delay, they still had a great time. I think the unlimited rice krispie treats helped!

The best part was when they got home later that night and Maxwell couldn’t wait to tell me that Spencer got lost and they had to call for Dad over the loud speaker!!! Ummm…yea. Apparently Robert had sat the boys down next to his co-worker while he went to get them popcorn. Spencer decided to go wander off and find Robert but I guess a well meaning adult found him first, asked him if he was lost, and took him to a police officer! Robert was still getting popcorn, oblivious to all of this, and got back to his co-workers flipping out and hearing on the loud speaker “We’re sorry to interrupt the fun, but we have a missing parent! Will Spencer’s parents please come behind home plate!” hahaha! Robert went down there and Spencer was sitting up on a counter just chatting up about 3 police officers! That boy.

Finally, Robert and I got to have some fun and do to the annual Kentucky Derby party our friends throw.

Lots of fun stuff for everyone!

Doughnuts with Dad

Happy Monday! Tonsillectomy recovery continues to go well. Maxwell is cruising through it with no complications and very little discomfort…thanks to the still round the clock pain meds we’re giving him! Hopefully the worst is behind us at this point.

In other news, Robert got to go up to school with Spencer on Friday for Doughnuts with Dad! I tried to get a pic of them before they left and, well…

Getting a picture of Spencer doing a “normal” smile is basically impossible so sometimes you just gotta go with the flow…

ha! For the record, Robert is actually pretty good at laundry! I do agree with Spencer on one thing though, we both love him because “he’s so good!” Yes he is!  :)

When we were in Montgomery, Robert was going through some of his old stuff and found this class picture from when he was about 4 years old. We all cracked up because we’ve seen Spencer make this exact face numerous times!

Ice Ice Baby

What a BEAUTIFUL long weekend we just had – sunny and 72 degrees in January! Even crazier is that we were covered in ice one week ago! Yep, last Friday the kids didn’t have school because of the impending winter weather. Now, nothing started falling until Friday night but when it started, it stuck! We woke up Saturday morning to 16 degree temps and everything covered in ice. Unfortunately it was just ice – no snow at all – so not a lot of fun for the kids. That didn’t stop them from wanting to get out and at least try to play in it…

It was bitterly cold. I think it was in the low 20s when we were out there playing. I used to live in NYC and could handle some majorly cold weather but I guess my bones are too Southern now because it was almost more than I could stand! It didn’t seem to bother the boys at all…they stayed out there forever trying to dig holes in the ice!

and I really love this picture of Maxwell. If you zoom in you can even see his breath in the sunshine…

All in all the ice was fun, not as much fun as snow but we’ll take it. Of course, my favorite part was definitely this….

The first day of ice was fun…by the second day we were all going a little stir crazy! More to come tomorrow…
