One day while driving along with the kiddos, we passed two women running together on the sidewalk. Evelyn was all excited and yelled, "Look mommy, cool runner girls like you!!" :)

Father's Day Weekend

Friday evening: Travis learned that he has to travel again this week for work. After the kids went to bed he worked on booking his flight, hotel, etc. I went to the gym. I got there around 9PM. I spent my entire cardio workout people-watching and trying to figure out why everyone else was spending their Friday night at the gym. I mean, I am trying to get my shape back and that time of the day is the only time that works for me. What was everyone else's excuse? Why didn't they have anything better to do? It was fun to make up stories in my head about everyone :)

Saturday: Travis went golfing in the morning. That was part of his Father's Day gift. He went with his friend Jim (another new dad). Saturday evening we went to Mass with our friend Chad. Both kids were pretty good during church. Evelyn can be a little wiggle-worm -- but I think she is slowly understanding that church is quiet-time, and she can't crawl around or play. We went to dinner afterwards. Noah had a little bit of a break-down during dinner and Travis and I took turns leaving the restaurant to walk around with him outside. Ugh! Noah isn't a fussy kid, but when he does it is typically right around dinner time. Oh well...

Sunday: Went to Trav's favorite spot for breakfast. Luckily, we went early enough to beat the rush. We waited maybe 5 minutes to be seated -- we even were able to sit outside!! Here is a picture of Travis and Evelyn at breakfast:

Noah at breakfast:Picture taken back at home after breakfast. Noah is definitely going to be bigger than Evelyn at some point...My favorite part of the weekend... Evelyn was able to try out her kiddie pool. She loved it!! She loves baths, too -- so we knew she would enjoy the pool. Notice the hat... it is rare that Evelyn will be outside without a hat on. She has such fair skin, and not much hair still... so I am paranoid about her head getting burned. Oh well -- she usually doesn't mind wearing them.

I think I get just as excited about setting up the kiddie pool as my kids are. I have such good memories of playing in my kiddie pool, and its so nice to be able to relax outside while they're playing.

Cute pics.

We did the pool thing this weekend too. JR and I had a beer while the kids splashed around, it was nice!

Ohhh, I am sorry Travis had to leave again. Hope your week goes smoothly. Give me a call when you have a chance.

Also, great pictures. The one of Travis and Evelyn at the restaurant is adorable. Cambrie is also going to outgrow the twins. Yay for healthy babies :)

I wish we could get the girls to wear hats outside. I think I will just lather their head with sunscreen when we take them to the pool in MO.
