We took a bunch of boys on a camping trip Friday night and Saturday to celebrate Asa’s birthday. It was so much fun! Except for the all night thunderstorm that pretty much kept all of us from sleeping and made us wonder if we should head back home in the middle of the night. Other than that..it really was so much fun. Asa has a great bunch of friends.
Back home again…today was going along just fine until Malachi flung himself into a metal bed frame. Lots of tears (Malachi cried too) and three stitches later…we’re back home from the ER with a new stuffed puppy and a very brave and happy four year old.
Ever notice that EVERY picture of Malachi shows him in a different costume? This kid likes to play dress-up. He even took his trip to the ER in his Transformer costume.
I’m hoping that this week will be a little less crazy and that the weekend will bring some out of town guests. (Michele…Jayme…I planned a yummy menu this weekend to make you work even harder to make your way north on Friday.)
If you notice a lot of strawberries on the menu this week…it’s because I have a LOT of them in my house right now. I’ll tell you all about it on Gratituesday! Strawberries make me so happy…
