Ben took Monday off so he could have a three day weekend with us and we enjoyed it so much! Saturday we had a great 4th of July, Sunday we visited my parents, my Grandparents and had dinner with Ben's Dad.
Today we had a day to ourselves that was wonderful! We took the kids to Chuck E Cheese's, to Sonic, and played around at home while getting some stuff done too!
We had some new 'little trees' growing in our gutters so Ben and I got the ladder out and I decided to climb up onto the roof and yank them all out, which, by the way, is WAY faster than going up and down the ladder-WAY faster. So, of course, Kobe sees me up on the roof and wants to come up on the roof with me. I wasn't comfortable taking him up there with just me-for some reason visions of us both tumbling off the roof popped into my head and since I did not way to spend the rest of the day in the ER I told Ben if he wanted to go up on the roof with Kobe he could, but I didn't want to. So, Ben took Kobe up on the roof and when I saw them sitting up there with the blue sky behind them I had to take a couple pictures :)
While we were outside the kids road their bikes, played in the dirt, played with side walk chalk & played B-ball.
Then, this evening we went over to see Ben's Dad on his day off *enter muffled laughter here because, trust me, he didn't have the day 'off'* and had dinner with him and hung out. S decided to break in Mark & Cindy's new back stairs by tumbling down them in the typical 2 yr old fashion that of course made me scream. Don't worry, she is perfectly fine. :)
