Yesterday the power went out about 5p until around 8p, and it was raining so we couldn't go outside. I was pretty impressed with the kids. They got out some coloring supplies sat in front of the big window downstairs and colored for about an hour with no complaints. There wasn't much light coming in the window but they made do. I love it when they play so nice together.
Here is to our 5th grader!!

The kids get to run the bases after each weekend home game, you cant really see but Valerie is the one just past steamer in pink
Sunday we took the kids to the Curve game because they had fireworks, the kids really love the fireworks. And of course the Curve lost but everyone had fun. Valerie's friend came along as well.

We went to the grocery store the other day and Austin got really excited when he saw watermelon and asked to have it, I couldn't refuse because it was at least something healthy. So he carried it through the store came home and he was begging to eat it right away. He gave it to daddy to open, daddy opened it put it on the table walked away to go get a cutting board and knife, I was putting the rest of the grocery's away and Valerie was putting her school stuff away. When Rob came back to the table this is what we saw. Valerie came out to see what we thought was funny and then Valerie wanted some too. Rob and I decided to opt out of watermelon for obvious reasons.

Yes his dinner is on the table, he did have to eat his dinner before he actually got a piece of pie
last night I found a weight watchers recipe for banana cream pie and it was really easy to make. It took me a little longer to make it because I had to make the gram cracker crust from scratch because I didn't buy one. But that only made it healthier for us. Valerie didn't want any she said she liked it when she tasted it on the spoon, but she never turns down a snack. She didn't even want to help Austin to clean the bowl. Austin and daddy loved it.
