Labor Day

We were all off! I was on call for my Holiday, but all quiet. Look who went grocery shopping with Dad! 
My bed this morning. Three of the four (Mason was at a sleepover). They were all watching the kindle at this moment. Loved these 3 together snuggling and tickling. 
Papa Gary and Grandma Kaye came up to celebrate Birthdays today ! 

Love them! 
Gifts for the rest of the crew. (Me included!) I'm ready to go shopping!! All the crew have new outfits for tomorrow . :) 
We finished gifts and headed to lunch by them. Thank you so much and the visit it was too short!! 
Maya had her friend Lucia to play later in the day. They loved playing in the draining of the pool from the big rains we have had. 
I had a bill to pay. An adventure for the girls to head to the mailbox! 
I've signed both girls up for dance classes at separate times this season. Think someone is excited? 
They both decorated themselves and did a dance for Matt and I tonight. 

Sesame Street Live!

We met Belle and Tasha Sunday afternoon for Sesame Street Live! Mason had another game. I missed again! I love baseball but I think I'm tired of chasing girls at games and needed a break. I guess it was a very dramatic game so I'm glad I wasn't there. Mason was playing 1st base. At one point, he made a flying jump to catch a throw from third base. He came down and the runner plowed into him. Mason stood strong and the player fell down. (Memories of me, Mom?) I guess the other team, players and coaches heckled Mason and the umps. He and Matt even heard people saying, " Next time hit him with a pitch." (Meaning hit Mason) So sad that kids have to encounter mean people :( This fall ball team is rec, so Mason isn't his usual number nor his name on the back of his shirt, I'm thankful. Mason loves the game and wouldn't hurt an ant intentionally on the field. I guess a good life lesson on mean people. 

Meanwhile we had a girls afternoon ! Not sure what these 3 were looking for? Elmo? 
Great dancing show! 

All smiles at intermission. 

ELMO!!!!!  I can only imagine these girls in a few years with boy bands....

A Day at Knight's

 A co worker gave me free passes to Knight's Action Park as a thank you for a favor.  We had a very limited time to use them so I made a quick decision to go on Saturday.  Mason had a double header so I took the Mitch, the neighbor twins, and the girls.  It was so much fun!  It looked gloomy off and on so it wasn't busy at all.
This was the girls' favorite slide.  You could hear them scream the entire way down.

Riding the bigger slides. They are fearless!
The boy crew I took.They were so good and helpful.

The boys waiting to go down.
It was such a fun day!  I was sad that Matt and Mason weren't with us, but Mason's games went went well.
