Friday night. Doug and I dropped the kids off (ALL the kids) and took off for the evening. It was the first time since January that we had been away from the kids. I pumped all week in preparation. Maybe you can tell-- we weren't excited at all...
Kidding. We were actually very excited. Because we went to see Mumford and Sons! So fun to see them perform live and outdoors in the park! They definitely put on a good show.
We were feeling pretty youthful that night so we even bought t shirts. I wore mine all weekend.
Friday was about us-- Saturday was all about the kids. Doug and I have been talking about buying a trampoline for the backyard for a while now, since Doug had a rare Saturday at home we decided it would be the perfect day to buy the one we've been eyeing and set it up!
You cannot imagine how excited our older two kids were. They have grown to love jumping on their cousin's trampoline, so the thought of having one of their own was pretty much the best thing ever!
Just look at the smile on Caleb's face. Can it get any bigger? I think not.
Since we have the trampoline now we've decided to retire our above ground pool (aka Gladys) for this year. I was feeling a little apprehensive about setting it up this summer since I have to watch the kids like a hawk anytime they play in the backyard with the pool around and because it's a lot of work to maintain during the summer.
This trampoline doesn't have any exposed springs or metal bars and has a huge cage to keep them on the trampoline as they're jumping-- so I feel like it is a much safer backyard activity for them.
It's pretty great to zip them in and let them jump their little hearts out. I foresee many early bedtimes in the near future!
I don't want to leave anyone out... so I'll just throw a quick picture of little S-dog up on the old blog today. Just when I think he can't possibly get any cuter I wake up and bam-- he's 10 times cuter than the day before.
Melts my heart. Especially when he sleeps through the night THREE nights in a row!
