Shaving cream, fishies, and corn!!

What a weekend!  It seems sometimes we never get a chance to chill out and just relax.  We are always going somewhere, doing something, all at lightning fast speed.  The kids are growing up so fast... too fast!  I am really enjoying our time together.  I am trying my best to make the most of it.  I want Leah and Brayden to remember so many fun, creative, and special memories with Mom and Dad.  I think we've started off nicely....

Leah has been doing a new fun project at least once a day.  Her favorite by far has been the shaving cream...  I gave her a squirt bottle full of purple watercolors, and some powdered jello... oh boy it was a mess!  She started off inside, and I quickly determined it was an outdoor activity.  She loved getting messy and "washing" the deck.  She played for a good 2.5 hours before her nap, and fell right to sleep.

We went to the aquarium again yesterday with Uncle Bryan, Aunt Cassie, and Aubrey.  The kids had a blast.  Brayden adores all the fish, and Leah got a little more brave holding onto Uncle Bryan.  She even checked out the sharks up close - a big deal for her!  After a quick trip to the park and a sleepy ride home we enjoyed time at Brayden's friend, Evangeline's birthday party.  Leah was obsessed with all the yummy treats.  Brayden wanted nothing more than to go home and sleep.

Today we put 100lbs of dried corn in a kiddie pool in Grandma and Grandpa's garage.  Everyone had a blast.  I think out of Leah, Aubrey, and Brayden - Brayden had the most fun.  He went crazy kicking and digging in the corn.  It was adorable.  The girls really had a blast as well, especially once we brought out the slide.

So, as you can see... we had a jam packed weekend.  We all had a wonderful time, but I am glad it's over!  Enjoy the pictures!!
