The Weekend

this weekend my parents came up for a visit (campbell was dedicated at church on sunday - another post coming soon!). we had a great time together and a pretty packed saturday!

we started the day with a soccer game.
this was actually the best one yet!
jayden scored his first goal, and was really engaged in the game.
the fan's

after the soccer game we headed to the arboretum!
it was a perfect day for this.
we attempted to get a family picture
(hard as usual!)
we tried to get the cousins together
(ek and campbell wore matching outfits!)
amy, me, mom, and alex
mimi, ek, & jayden playing in the wagon
dad & mom

dad & campbell
little mr. opinionated
didn't want to take pictures on the pumpkin, but ASKED for a picture to be taken on THESE pumpkins!
(and no - it was not cold enough to wear a hat, but you try to fight that battle - it wasn't worth it to me!)
jason & al
after the arboretum we had lunch and then the kids took naps.
while napping - the girls (minus al) went to get pedis & coffee - fun times!

for dinner, everyone came over to our house

cute al
we took pictures of the spread
it was a yummy dinner of crocked fajitas!
jason & dad
again - his decision to take the shirt off
(no it wasn't particularly hot either - we go from extremes here!)
