Our Life in Pictures
the boys had a boys weekend at home. It all started off with a soccer game for Will (more on that here: http://www.mattkoch.com/nfblog/?p=7465). We got 5 inches of snow so in addition to the usually scheduled hockey game on Sunday, we went out to breakfast, watched a movie, went sledding, went out to dinner, played games and some other stuff that Dad has already forgotten about.
It was a typical busy weekend filled with a soap box derby, a street hockey game, pumpkin carving, buying apples from a farm stand to make apple crisp and, of course, lots of card games
Come visit us again soon, Paw Paw!
Survival was the #1 priority for everyone over the weekend. Mom took part in her first (of many?) triathlons. And, dad stayed home with the kids. ALONE…FOR THE WEEKEND!
Mom split the tri with Auntie Donna, with mom doing the swim and half of the bike. She remembered everything both her swimming coach and daughter taught her, dusted the 8-yr old cobwebs off the bike and got it done.
They then celebrated with the other participants (Auntie Chrissy, Cousin Michael, Uncle Scott, Patrick) at the beachcomber with a few mudslides and a beautiful beach day.
Anna was a little disappointed Mom didn’t win and bring us home the $500 prize but we’re all proud of her. Way to go MOMMY!
As for dad, he dressed us all up in our soccer gear for the Gorilla’s final game of the Spring and then we did other weekend stuff – went to BJ’s, Whole Foods, B-day party, play-date, watched a movie, played street hockey, ate pizza, etc.
It was a big weekend for me as well. I’m done at the Kids’ Stop. Next year, I will be going to pre-school at the Small Fry. And, I’m now riding around in a booster seat. No more baby seat for me.
I’m a lot happier about it than my picture would lead you to believe.
We don’t know who was the most excited a few weeks ago when Mom and Dad’s buddies from San Francisco said they’d be visiting and staying the night. We were so happy to have them for a taco dinner, some wine and some time in the park. Mom says times have changed: no scattegories and no 2am coffees on the couch, but there’ll be plenty of time for those things when we revisit SF on our Fall 2014 tour!
Will and Hayden became fast friends over dueling ipad games and some football in the park.
It was hard to say goodbye. Until next time, friend.
Not much happened last weekend but these 2 pictures sum up our latest interests (obsessions).
I love hockey and got to watch both Bruins games over the weekend. By my side are my tools and water bottle. Why my water bottle? Because Mom and Dad always tell me that hockey players drink water. I know its just a ploy to get me to drink less milk.
As for Anna, she loves books. After a trip to the library, she’ll have her nose buried in books for the next few hours.
