Guys/Girls Weekend

Well, we are about to wrap up another school year. I can't believe next year that Natalie will be in 6th grade - just yesterday she was born! Nothing really exciting going on in our lives - just life. A couple of weekends ago, Tim and Nathan went to RazorFest at University of Arkansas. This was a guys only weekend and the first. They had so much fun and I think Nathan might have bathed once...not very important to a 9 year old boy. They spent Saturday playing games and walking around the campus. Tim took him around and they found Tim's name, Ed's name and Stephen's name on the sidewalks. Nathan also took lots of pictures - some of the same scene. They had a great time and Tim really enjoyed one on one time with Nathan.

At the same time, Natalie and I enjoyed a girls weekend. We made a quick trip to West Memphis for my 8 year old niece's birthday party. It was a swim party at a local hotel. Natalie had a lot of fun. We spent the night at the hotel and then had get back home Saturday for a soccer game. After all of that, we rented a couple of movies and enjoyed relaxing at home. And of course, no girls weekend would be complete without a little shopping. We bought Natalie some summer sandals and I got a new pair of tennis shoes for work (The Container Store). We finished the night off with dinner at Chili's.

It is so great having the kids at the ages they are at - so many fun activities to enjoy!

I'm looking forward to the time when my kids will be this age and out of diapers! I want to enjoy where I am too, but I think activities like this sound like such fun, bonding time! Enjoy it, as I'm sure it will fly by!
