we enjoyed breakfast out on the deck:
we played with the train set:
we read books (photos courtesy of abigail lewis photography):
i did a little scrubbing after a potty accident (hey, you take the bad with the good, right?):
we played "photo session":
we saved this little guy...
from this nasty guy...
(no, that's not the same cat who last weekend ate the entire nest of baby birds we had been watching for weeks now. he was there, too, but something about my running towards him waving wildly and screaming "BOOGIE, BOOGIE" scared him off.)
we set our blog to have invitation-only readers:
jack and abby played in the band:
izzy announced that she had decided to suck her thumb. thankfully, she had no clue what to do and quickly decided that thumb-sucking was overrated:
we cooked a yummy pasta dish:
we played hide 'n seek:
daddy set up the poor man's waterpark:
and we went to the art museum. i don't actually have any photos of that, but make sure you check out the post i did after our first trip there. it's a classic.
i did learn a couple of things while the kids were playing in the pool. first of all, jack's face reacts violently to water droplets.
it's what i imagine a boxer's face would look like .2 seconds after the impact from his opponent's glove. and it's the same every. single. time.
yes buddy...your face is still there.
izzy wasn't quite as bothered by the water, but poor thing...she just couldn't stay standing to save her life.
and speaking of izzy, this was one of my favorite pics from the week. this is her watching the little bird we saved finally figure his way out of the screened-in porch once the cats were gone:
