We had a nice weekend--here are some highlights:
Eric brought me these beautiful flowers--a pink one for Natalie and orange for Nathan (the florist didn't have blue ones)
Nathan got to go fishing for the first time--he loved it, even though they didn't catch anything! He came running in to tell me all about the worms, etc. I now have a container of nightcrawlers in my fridge--ewwww!
Sunday after church we had a pizza picnic at a nearby park. (Gotta love Iowa--grain elevators in the background!) It was nice to not cook and Nathan loved eating outside, especially since there were several geese on the pond.
We actually watched a movie in its entirety in one sitting (it's been awhile since we've been able to do that--anyone else relate?!)--Marley & Me. I'd heard it was sad, and resolved to not cry. I may or may not have succeeded with that. =) There was a portion of the movie that was uncanny in its relevancy to our current life situation: Working dad, toddler, newborn, dog who sometimes has the gall to bark loudly while aforementioned kids are sleeping, and a stay-at-home mom who sometimes gets overwhelmed by it all. Eric and I were cracking up when we saw those scenes!
