Marvelous Monday & the Weekend update....

and when I say "Marvelous Monday", I mean it. It has been a great day all around, even with the mix of snow & rain falling outside. We just had a great "Family weekend"...you know it's always awesome when K. comes home. We pretty much hung out & just enjoyed being together. Yesterday we went to Wally World & the kids got new bikes from Grandma (D.'s was an early birthday present & R.'s was because...well he's so darn cute. Thanks Mom :) We brought the bikes home & both kids amazed us. D. had outgrown her old bike & is now in a 24inch 10speed. :0 How did she get this big??? This was R.'s first big boy bike....until now he had been strictly a tricycle man....well look at him now. He was off! At one point he had taken off & was 5 houses down. As I ran after him & shouted for him to come back, he yelled to me "I don't need any help Mom!". That boy is too much. Mr. Independent, I tell you! They both did so well that we took them to Cold Stone to celebrate! Yummy!

Today K. took R. & his little friend to gymnastics, to enable the launch of Operation E.B. (or in civilian terms, Easter Bunny shopping). I couldn't believe Easter has snuck up on me again, so I had to get my butt back to Walmart to get stuff for the kiddos' baskets. I am thrilled to say that is d-o-n-e!

Then we came home & R. was insistent on riding his bike again....in the rain none the less. Crazy kid! Maybe I have the next Lance Armstrong in my midst......

Tonight is D.'s Karate class & then a parent meeting for our preschool (a parent co-op). It seems like I am constantly on the run....but life is good...damn good!

Lastly I wanted to share some pics of my girl in her aquatic state. She has been rockin' the local pool lately. Her coach says one more 'level' & then she can join the swim team. On Friday 3 of the coaches were standing around & commenting on her...then they leaned over the rail into the bleachers to tell me my daughter has a 'beautiful backstroke...the best they've seen in years'. I was floored! This is the kid that wouldn't put her face underwater a year & a half ago. Way to go D.!!!!

How awesome!! I can't believe D's on a grown-up/big girl bike...I remember two summers ago when she was just trying to learn the bike thing without training wheels...how fast time flies. R looks great on his bike...I'm so proud of them...they're amazing kids and they have super great parents. I love you guys!!

Looks like a great time!! It's finally warming up here, too!

I really liked the part where you said "r. and his little friend" that totally made me think of that one movie line..."say hello to my little friend" :)hehe!!
