We have had the best week, and I so grateful for much-needed time with my awesome boys! 

We started Saturday by spending the day at the soccer field watching the Schell kids rock in their soccer games.  Then we went for a milkshake treat and to feed the ducks in Hendersonville.  As mentioned on facebook, Maddox fell in the water head first!  Praise the Lord Josh caught his foot so he didn’t fall completely in because one of us (um, Josh) would have had to go in after him lol. 

 Sunday we went to the zoo.  I was bummed the new train ride wasn’t working, although they began advertising it weeks ago!  However, the kids still had a blast and feeding the birds was great fun!  Kyson had his first carousel ride, he was not amused 🙂

Monday, we took the Schell kids bowling and to Taco Bell.  For 6 kids 8 and under, they all did awesome!  Baker won the bowling game! 

Tuesday we met Aunt Ramona and family at the Civic Center for some swimming.  Well, I actually went grocery shopping with Kyson and Josh took Maddox and Carter.  The kids LOVE going there and had an awesome time!

Wednesday began with drs appnts for Maddox and Kyson.  3 yr check up for Maddox went great. He is just over 90% for his height and just over 50% for his weight.  Dr. Hudson said although he is not proportionate, he isn’t concerned about him.  Kyson is just over 95% for his height and just over 85% for his weight.  During hs check up he discovered Kyson had a terrible ear infection 😦  Glad we went because I had no idea!  After check ups, I took the kids to the Landskron’s house so I could get some things done for an evaluation at work next week.  Miss Morgan and Miss Adreanna are the boys babysitters and they also have 3 younger brothers so the boys were in heaven there.  Of course they didn’t want to go home 🙂  Then, I took the boys to ride the Music City Star to Nashville.  It was fun.  Very entertaining for $5!  Of course it was only cheap because the boys were free and Josh picked us up in Nashville so we only rode one way.  Maddox’s face was soo sweet!  He was so excited.  Wednesday was a busy day!

Thursday we picked Grandmother up at the airport and brought her home.  She forgot her house key in CO so the boys got to watch the locksmith open the door, which they thought was cool.  Then we went to lunch at O’Charleys and took mom to get her rental car.  We went to the outlet stores in Lebanon to look for outfits for the boys to wear to Aunt Anna’s wedding on May 1st.  I think we found something that is going to work!  The big boys spent the night with Grandmother, although Maddox fell asleep on the way home and slept all night 🙂 

Friday we mostly just played outside.  It was a gorgeous 80 degree day!  The boys played on the swingset with just their shorts on, and I became increasingly frustrated with the neighbors rose-bush that scrapes the kids legs when they swing. We could move the swingset, but it is bolted down and has a sand box, not fun!  Also, according to the person we purchased our home from, it’s all our property AND we asked if it was ok before we put the swing set there!  Oh well, we like our neighbors and we will work it out somehow.  I am still confused about why they planted a random rose-bush in the middle of the yard anyway, it’s an odd location!

So, a wonderful week for us!  Pictures to come!
