Well today has already been busy, but we also got alot accomplished over the weekend.

Saturday night Adam and I got to run some errands instead of a date night, but we did it alone while MIL watched the boys so that was nice. Sunday we did a whole lot of yard work in the morning. The kids wanted to hang out at home and have a BBQ and play so that is what we did. They had a blast playing with this:

It's a Little Tykes toy that pitches the balls to you to hit. Alex was doing these "Hi-Yah!" chops at the ball instead of actually swinging at them. Both Alex and Jake hit lefty which was hard to help them with their hitting for me and Adam. Even Matthew was having fun trying it out. He was a better ball boy though gathering them all up. Jake and Matthew both kept sticking their head right over the hole to try to get a glimpse of the next ball coming and I was constantly yelling for them to move and scooping them out of the way or cringing like crazy hoping they didn't get hit in the face with one. But everyone stayed safe and had a blast. We even got Nick outside for awhile that did not include swimming which is hard to do! One thing we learned though was that Nick has one great natural swing and is interested in trying Little League this year, so I need to check into that for him. I was thrilled when he said he would like to do it so that he will get out a bit more and meet some new friends his age instead of being his normal home-body self on the computer or playing video games!

Matthew had a well baby check up today and is doing great. His weight is still on the low end - 22lbs 3 oz at 15 months old (born at 9lbs 13oz) but he is so very active and constantly eats so it seems he'll just be tall and thin. Its the first appointment he has had where they have not worried about his blood counts which is nice. He received two shots and will go back in three months. I need to get Alex in there in the next week for a physical for school. He loves going there and brings his own doctor toys with him. Luckily our pediatirican is wonderful and lets "Dr. Alex" examine him as well during the appointment.

Off to visit some of my regular blog reads while Matthew is napping and I am having my lunch break and then I need to get work done around here so I can get out to the pool with the kids as I promised!
