A great weekend

This weekend was so nice! On Saturday we actually had a couple in our ward watch our kids, yes both of them. At first we just figured we'd take Charlotte, but I realized that I would be holding her the whole time and I really wanted a little alone time with Trent. So I pumped some milk we dropped the kids off and headed out to dinner ALONE! It was so great to have a couple hours to ourselves just to sit and eat and hang out. I have never left Charlotte with a sitter and I was excited to get her back, but it was a great time out with my hubby. We went to Outback and my food wasn't great, but we split a sundae which was really good and it felt nice to be at a restaurant without a 2 year old.This is Charlotte in the dress Candace sent for her. Too bad the hat was too big. What a cutie.

Sunday after church Karen called me, it is always good to hear from her, she is so silly and cute. Then we picked up the house and just hung out until 5:00 when we had the Petersen's over for dinner. The weather was gorgeous after a week of rain. We grilled steak, chicken, pork, mushrooms, peppers, onions, yellow summer squash. We had rice, pasta salad, and fruit salad too. It was SO tasty. We even had peach cobbler and vanilla ice cream for dessert.
Ian had Charlotte laughing out loud with his little Baby got Back song and sound effects. Liam ("Baby Lamb" as Tucker says) is so happy and smiley all the time. I couldn't believe all the excited squeels he was doing, I thought it was Tucker for a minute. Then to finish off the perfect day, while I was feeding Charlotte and getting her to sleep Trent cleaned the kitchen spotless and took out ever trash in the house! Gotta love that guy!

Sounds like a good weekend. I left Liv and Taj with Shauna for an hour and a half during Tristan's party. I had a blast playing laser tag and eating pizza without a baby on my lap or kid under the table! I'm glad you had a nice break. You deserve it.:)

K, Liam looks stoned in that picture. LOL! Charlotte is one beautiful girl! I miss squeezing her already. She is still sooo tiny compared to Liam.
