A Day Out!

This weekend we went to a friends house for a BBQ lunch. Saturday was over-cast and rainy, but Sunday turned out to be a decent day! There were still some scattered clouds, but it was warm and reminiscent of summer days yet to come.

Because our friends live in their own home (not an apartment like us) they have a room devoted to toys (:O) like, like, like!) and a backyard! Our boys and Kaitlyn had a blast. All of our children just love the outdoors. Kaitlyn really loves the breeze blowing through her hair, she laughs and laughs! She also enjoys the swing set. I hold her and swing and she just loves it!

It was very nice of our friends to invite us over and to have us for lunch. When it was time to go Owen didn't want to leave, so our friends offered to keep Owen longer. Needless to say Owen was thrilled. He LOVES the outdoors and didn't want to come home yet. They offered to keep Alex too, but Tim and I thought that would be a little much yet. Alexander is only two, and while I think that he would be alright without Tim or I there, he is definitely a little more work!! Owen is a pretty self sufficient little guy.

Here are some pics of our day:

Kaitlyn in the playroom watching the boys. She was laughing just before I snapped the shot.

Alexander having a quick break.

Owen pressing all of his "controls" LOL

The swings are a huge hit!

This picture is dark, but Kaitlyn was loving the outdoors!!! I just wish we could get her out more often!

Owen and his ride-ons!!

Alexander, wasn't unhappy just squinting over the sun...I guess I should have remembered their sunglasses!

Owen and his best bud raking leaves! They were having so much fun!

Our friends' youngest! She was having a real blast playing in those leaves :o) Isn't she adorable!
