Carson cooperated as long as he was being held.
My brother, Jeff, sister-in-law, Jeree, niece, Anna, her friend, and my mom all went to watch Darrin play in Oklahoma. My brother and his family live in Texas and it wasn't a long drive for them. How fun that they go to go! I was so happy to get this pic from my mom.
Friday night, Miles had a scrimmage. The weather was beautiful and the company was great. Carson did much better at this practice than he did at the first. Miles played short stop and left field. He struck out once and got two singles. It was a pretty good start for him.
He scrimmaged against one of his best buddies, Tyler.
After the scrimmage we went home and I finally got both kids to sleep a little after 11pm. Miles was much earlier, but Carson took some time. I took a bath and fixed my hair around midnight b/c that was really the first time I'd had a chance all day. All is right in my world when my hair is clean. Carson is not much of a napper (yet) so it's hard to get anything done. He sleeps well at night though. I'm going to keep working with him on the nap thing. Miles used to sleep for 3-4 hours at a time and it was heavenly.
Saturday morning, Miles went to a friends house, and then we invited a different friend, Levi, over that night. Having no kids in our neighborhood makes for long days. I try to invite friends over for Miles as much as possible, especially while Carson is little and I can't do as much with Miles.
They played Legos, dressed like superheroes, played Skylanders, ate pizza, and did an outdoor scavenger hunt. I think it was a successful play date for both of them.
While they played, I watch around 5 hours of volleyball. Carson wouldn't let me do anything else anyway.
Thank goodness he's cute.
Since Darrin didn't get in until 3am, I took the boys to church myself. I allowed plenty of time to get ready and get out the door. Surprisingly, it wasn't that hard. Miles cooperated which made all the difference. He can make or break your day :)
At church, his Sunday School class decorated a poster for first responders. I love his input..."God is good".
Darrin actually had a night off tonight, so we took advantage and went to eat. Unfortunately I ended up on a bench out front with Carson. I forgot how much fun it is to eat out with kids! Our waitress admittedly forgot to put in our order so it took forever to get our food. About the time it came, Carson started crying. None of us were that hungry anyway after bread, an appetizer, and a salad. We scrounged and got out of there asap.
After dinner, we went to ride go karts. They were closed, so we settled on an arcade at the same place. All three of us really like arcades, so it wasn't really settling.
Miles lets us use some of his coins as long as we earn some tickets for him. It's a win, win.
So....this happened today. This is where the never say never comes in. I have a huge disdain for "wearing" children. I don't know why, it just always seemed like a helicopter parent that wouldn't put their kids down.
