How to Take a Selfie (and More Kiddo Fun)

Tuesday, April 22, 2014

A few weekends ago, my bro and his two kiddos came to visit for the weekend. My brother's birthday was earlier in the week, so we thought it would be fun to get together to celebrate all weekend long...because that is how we do birthdays!

Since the weather was beautiful out, and we had two kiddos with more energy than AEP Ohio, we decided to take them to the park to blow the stink off of them (as my Mother would say), and let them run off some energy. Oh and the adults got to enjoy some sunshine as well (and blow the stink off of us too).

My favorite picture of the day was captured down by the river. I have titled this #selfie. And in case you needed to know how to take a selfie, this is how it is done to produce a picture like this...

Gotta love those kids.

Here are some more fun pictures from the day...

And of course there was a little swinging involved. I was wondering during this time if the swing seats had gotten smaller over the years. I was then informed the swing seats have not changed, but my seat has gotten bigger :(

When we got back to the house we had a cookout, and then let the kiddos play with fire...the kiddos love to burn marshmallows. Nothing like filling them full of sugar once they have run out all of their energy at the park.

And since it was my bro's birthday, we had to have cake, ice cream and a little singing. How fun are these cuties and their birthday song?!?

The next morning we got up bright and early and made waffles and bacon for breakfast. Then we headed out for the Palm Sunday service at church.

Miss Izzie just had to wear a little of Aunt Jenny's lipstick to church. Such a little diva!

Rick and I have been going to the barn church during Lent. Instead of giving up something, we decided to make an effort to go to church every Sunday (well that was giving up my sleeping in on Sunday mornings I guess). This church is just gorgeous and there are a ton of friendly people and lots of events going on. Hopefully we can continue to make an effort to go beyond Lent
