the kids were out of school friday, for a teacher work day, that confuses me as to why it wasn't the friday before easter, or the monday after, but either way, we were happy for the extra hours of hometime, and em promptly grabbed a friend for the night, which hubby and I have come to expect on any given non-school-night. and so it was.
amongst other things, the two promised me skull shaped cake pops, and i waited ALL day for them!
but, in the end, i was left with a destroyed kitchen, some scraps that looked like a zombie massacre cake pop apocalypse, and two giggling girls.
|killed it! (no, really, they did.)|
evan had his little buddy over as well. they were more on my train of thought, and stayed outside most of the day with me. at one point, they served me a delicious salad made from nature's goodness.
|looks better than the cake pops|
we raked the garden, fertilized it, and got it ready for "mounding" the potatoes. (which i still haven't done).
the #legocastros visited a flower stand this weekend to get mommy minifig some mothers day flowers. what a sweet family. ;)
|"thank you, lego family!" says momma mnifig!|
The morning was almost cold, but that didn't stop us from a picnic lunch at the park (with like 50 other people that had the same idea). but we rolled in with our rainbow chevron and blew them all away with our awesomness.
|at least one person smiled?|
a tad bit later, our fav little parklets came by for a spell.
of course emma scooped baby S. up and kept her the whole time.
evan and i have been taking note of all the blooms in the front gardens of the house. we like to come out before school and discover which ones had bloomed that morning. So far, we have 4 colors:
|dark purple (my favorite)|
|light purple (the tiny butterfly is a bonus)|
|and dark pink/red/purple, which is evan's fav, because, well, three colors.|
meanwhile, the fat cat enjoyed the morning watering
Saturday morning, evan had his last soccer game of the season.
he wanted to beat his 6-goals-in-one-game record that he had made the weekend before, but didn't quite make it.
|goal #2 in progress|
his little bestie scored a nice goal and i couldn't resist this photo.
the age group he plays in switches coaches, team members, and fields each week. we were happy he got to end the season with sophia.
MEANWHILE, emma and the hubby headed up for the annual Autism Oklahoma Piece Walk & 5k
Our team was the 23rd highest fundraising team, thanks to a baseball team in Perkins, OK who donated their fundraising money to us. Isn't that the best??
|emma, the cutest 5k out there.|
Ayden's momma took this photo for me. She had a little baby girl less than a month ago, and still did the 5k! Whuuuuu?? I know. Hard core.
Ayden has the best parents.
and then emma played a soccer game, but i failed in photos for that one (hey, you can't be 100% all the time, peoples!) and ended the evening at a friends' house, where i got to cuddle with this precious little one.
Sunday morning was another run, this time evan's favorite from 2013, the Little Dude Dash & Princess Run.
The atmosphere at this race is always fun for the kiddos.
He refused to unmask himself, even in the heat because batman doesn't want to give up his identity!
|batman also doesn't smile, he said.|
this race is a 2k, so it was a pretty quick one for these two.
|the princess getting ready to cross!|
another weekend survived!
so this week leaves 2 more evenings free for me & the little man, and 1 for the hubby & princess. can't wait until summuhtime when we get to lay around like fat cats every evening!!
i'll have to post our summer bucket list soon...we've got a few more spots to fill.
what are you up to this summer??
