A week has gone by?!

WOW--time flies! I realized it's been a week since I've posted! Dad and Louise's visit was great. Dad and Brent got a LOT done. They put in a set of pull-down stairs for the attic, and added flooring to the attic so Brent can start using it for storage. Dad also moved some duct-work around in the basement so Brent would have more storage room down there, too. This makes me wonder...DO WE HAVE TOO MUCH STUFF?!

The weather was kind of rainy, so my plans going to the zoo were rained out. Louise and I played the Wii for a while, and finally took the kids to the mall to wander around. It cleared up a little on Sunday, so I took her for a walk around the neighborhood. Mostly we just visited and played with the kids--I hope I didn't bore her too much. This second picture where Graham's asleep on the floor, check out his arm. He has it wrapped around her leg while he sleeps like he's not letting her get away!

Brent finally gave Dad a break, so he got a chance to play with the kids outside for a while. Sophie loves the slide!

Monday night Brent and I took the kids to the drive-in movie theater. Honestly, I thought this was going to be the PERFECT plan--the movie didn't start until 9:05pm...the kids don't mind sleeping in the car...if they needed to be changed, fed or loved, we were right there in the car with them...IT WAS NOT A GOOD EXPERIENCE. I didn't factor in the HEAT (it was warm so we needed to either have the windows/doors open or sit outside on the lawn chairs). Sophie didn't want to sleep, so she sat outside with us and ate popcorn. She got tired of that and wanted to run around in the dark, and SCREAMED when we tried to stop her. Finally we gave up and left. We're definitely going to try this again, though--now I know what to pack and consider for next time. You have to give us credit for trying, though!! :-)

You are braver than I for trying out the drive-in! :-) I get chicken to do things that involve other people around in a place where you are expected to keep to a reasonable volume b/c Decovin only has one volume and it is LOUD!!! We are trying to stress the "indoor voice" and whispering and he will do it when we ask but just for one word or two then it is back to SHOUTING! ha!

Looks like everything is going well! Love the pic of Graham sleeping next to Louise's leg! CUTE, CUTE!
