This weekend was a bit of a blur, but we managed to have some fun with the kids amidst the chaos. Knox and Brody had a birthday brunch with my sister, Kayla, who decided to cover them in temporary tattoos. Brody was delighted, so much so, I would suspect he’ll be our child that asks for real ones when he’s a teenager. He had “sleeves” of Cars tattoos and was SO proud of them! Hilarious.
Knox, on the other hand, told his aunt to “take off!” When she put his on. I asked to see it, and this is what he did. He was quite horrified about it. LOL- I did take it off for him.
I made a pound cake, and this is Brody knocking on the oven for it to come out.
If you needed more proof that Knox is my child, this is him watching “19 Kids and Counting” on Netflix. He calls the Duggars “Wise Men.” I have no idea why (unless maybe he saw a Christmas episode), but he told me he wanted to watch “wise men” one day, and it took me forever to figure out what he was talking about! Anyway, he’s a boy after my own heart with his Duggar love.
Knox’s other love is anything related to fire, so he really enjoyed watching sparklers and little cheap fireworks.
We took the boys swimming on Saturday at my mom and stepdad’s house. We didn’t take pictures while swimming, but when we were done, Knox said he “needs to lay down for a minute” which meant he wanted to lay in “his” bed and play with my mom’s iPad. LOL. One of their dogs, Luna, is a Border Collie and is terribly stressed when Knox swims. She runs around their pool until her feet bleed because she’s so anxious about him being in there. Poor thing! Knox’s swimming is absolutely crazy. He thinks he is a fish, I believe. He swims under water without holding his nose and holds his breath. It’s amazing. He has a puddle jumper but prefers to be without it. If we take it off of him, he is underwater practically the entire time. He’ll be swimming by himself by the end of the summer.
They were worn out!
We did some drawing… mainly Brody enjoyed this. He thought it was so funny when I would draw his trucks for him.
I finally made playroom curtains yesterday while Brody napped and hung them up last night. I could not get a good picture because the light was streaming in, so I’ll update that later. Eventually, I will post some more house pictures!
Did you guys do anything fun over the weekend?
