It would have been hard not to feel refreshed after our warm and sunny January weekend. I would just step outside and feel happy. But, I have another reason to feel refreshed this weekend. Finnan and Jude spent the weekend at Paw-Paw and Honey's house while Atticus went hunting with his brother and I spent the weekend at home. I have heard only positive reports, at least from the boys and the grandparents (Atticus did not get anything). They went to the insectarium, played at the playground, rode their bikes, went to Storyland, watched movies, watched boats at the river and ate pizza at Atticus' childhood favorite, Tower of Pizza.
Below are a few iPhone pictures that I received throughout the weekend. Finnan and Jude ate bug cookies (with real bugs), their stamps proclaiming, "I ate a bug!," Finnan sporting the tuxedo he will be wearing at Caelyn's wedding in March, Finnan and Jude watching a movie while Honey rests, and Jude just plain tuckered out at Sunday lunch.
I also heard a few funny stories. Paw-paw gave Finnan his old iPhone (it is not right that my toddler has a smartphone before I do). Apparently, Finnan spent 45 minutes on the potty while playing with the phone. I guess males are just born that way. Finnan also made sure he could do his dance moves while wearing his tux. This included his break dancing moves (mostly self-taught though highly encouraged by Atticus who desperately wants one of our children to be a b-boy... see Hong 10 vs. Lilou ). The weekend left both the boys and their Paw-Paw worn out:
