Fun Times

I started this post last Sunday and am just now getting around to actually doing it!
Sammi's soccer team had an end of season party at yummy Bosses Pizza in Keller. I love that place! It is a good thing they don't deliver so I don't order from them so much on my lazy, I-don't-feel-like-cooking nights. She has played indoor and outdoor with these girls since last fall and we just love the parents and the coaches. Aren't they cute with their trophies?

My proud soccer player. She is now on a mission to get more trophies than her daddy has...good luck, he has boxes and boxes of golf trophies from the many tournaments.
Josh took this picture of himself. I just had to throw it in.
Saturday, our lovely U-Verse that we fight with weekly was completely out. Even the internet. I was not a happy camper, but it was good to not have the TV on so much. But after awhile the kids were restless and fighting with each other. They tried to play with their Leapsters, but both had dead batteries and we didn't have enough to replace them. I remembered their Aunt Julie gave them the console to play Leapster games through the TV a year ago. Score! It kept them busy for awhile. Notice the pj's? It was definitely in the afternoon when this was taken. :)

Since I have returned to work, I feel like our nights are rushed and a blur of cooking dinner, cleaning afterwards, bath, reading, etc that I don't really get to spend quality time with my kids. My sister, who is the smartest ever, told me to just make a point to play a game with them several nights a week. Duh! Why didn't I think of that? So this night Sammi picked Pretty Pretty Princess to play. It was the first time I let go of my control-freakness and let him play alone. And guess what? The little stinker won!
Isn't he so cute with his jewels and camo pj's? Gotta give him something to make him still feel like a man.

Here he is showing off his big ring. He was so happy that he won.

And here Sammi is trying to take back the crown. It almost broke.

Sunday was a GORGEOUS day! I took advantage of that and took the kids down the street to the park. There is a great jogging trail that we go on first so Sammi has a good place to ride her bike. She still isn't wanting to take off the training wheels and try to ride without them. I personally think the training wheels make it harder for them to ride, but what do I know?

That's all folks! Jason and I are leaving tonight for our annual trip to Gruene with other friends and cannot wait for relaxation and fun with our friends. We will be back Monday, so you can bet that I'll be posting pics from the trip later. Have a great Memorial Weekend!
