Great Weekend!

We had a wonderful weekend and we have lots of pictures to prove it! 

Friday night we had the Bentons over for a cookout.  I love the Bentons!  They truly are our best friends and mean so much to us.  Just a side note-It was Gwen who introduced me to Lance...she's our match maker :)  For the menu we decided to just do hamburgers and hotdogs-trying to keep it simple after a week of testing.  We all just sat outside and let the boys play and we got to sit back and watch.  It was wonderful!

Aren't these boys the cutest or what?!?
 I wonder what they are talking about in this picture? 
 The boys had a blast in the gator!  Luke drove Landon all around the yard.
 We tried to play baseball but they decided to haul it in the back of the gator instead.

Luke spent most of the time driving the gator but Landon gets tired of it quickly.  He found dandalions and had fun blowing those around the yard. 

I was able to grab Landon for a quick picture!

Saturday morning we got up and around pretty early to go to Springfield.  Lance had to take some clothes back to PFI and we wanted to take Landon to the zoo.  It was so much fun! 

 It was a pretty big zoo and it was a beautiful day!  I even got a sunburn on my time I'll use sunscreen.
 Landon had fun checking it all out but I'll admit...he was a big chicken.  If an animal came near us he'd squeal and want to be held.  At the end of the zoo trip a peacock came around a corner and I thought Landon was going to have a break down.  He stopped and darted back to my arms.  It wa pretty hilarious! 

 Landon loved it when the bear was taking a bath!

 The giraffes were so close to us we could feed them...but we just looked at them. 

 Landon spent a lot of time on his daddy's shoulders.  It was easy to keep up with him this way-but I bet Lance was tired! 
 Landon keeps mentioning the elephants in the washer.  Remember...he doesn't like the carwash and I guess he remembers those brushes.   The elephants kept rubbing up against the brushes and it made him think of smart!

It was an awesome trip and Landon did so good!  We left at 9 AM and didn't get home till 8 PM.  Can't wait for more family trips! 

Sunday was church and then we stayed around the house.  Lance mowed and of course Landon had to be outside so we helped out as much as we could.  I bought Landon a water gun at Wal-Mart and we had fun squirting each other. 

Tomorrow night is our Kindergarten musical.  We have three groups going and of course my program isn't until 7:30.  Looks like it will be a late night for me.  I'm old and go to bed at 8:30...I can't help it!


  1. Cute pictures! We love the zoo also. Landon is so stinkin cute. Looks like you had a fun time!

  2. Looks like you had a fun weekend. I love the pictures! We need to go to the Memphis Zoo sometime. I don't think Logan has ever been to the zoo. (bad mom) Maybe I'll take him to Springfield to Dickerson Park Zoo. We get out of school Friday for Good Friday...hmmmmm.
