What a Weekend!!!

It is Sunday night and as usual the kids are in bed and Chris and I just sat down and are exhausted and sore. We were outside ALL day yesterday working in the yard. I will have to post pictures of that later. I will say looks GREAT!!!!!! I love spring/summer. I love looking out our front window and seeing flowers, colors, and sunshine.

However, if you ask our kids about this weekend I'm sure their first response would be, "we found a snake." Chris was on the side of our house cleaning out underneath the rose bush. He was clearing some stuff out and almost picked something up and then realized it was moving. He yelled, "bring me a shovel quick." I knew then it was something major but thought maybe a big spider or something. But no, it was a brown snake about 14 inches long. It freaked Chris out a little...he NEVER gets freaked out. The kids kept asking (after Chris chopped his head off) why the snake kept moving. I was really proud of Christopher. He usually does not like to touch bugs but he actually held the snake...he was so brave. Kaibryn on the other hand just looked at it. She tried to touch it a couple of times but quickly pulled her hand back. The rest of the afternoon they were talking about keeping the snake and took turns "babysitting" the snake.

Things have calmed down and the snake is now is probably being digested into some animals tummy right now.

This is a crazy week for us. Tomorrow we are going to the zoo with some friends so I'm sure there will be pictures and stories to follow. Chris and I are going out of town this weekend with my parents and brother and sister-in-law to the wedding of the century. There is lots of laundry, packing, cleaning and finishing projects (painting the laundry room) before Wednesday...Grana is coming. The kids are very excited and are counting down the days. HOpe everyone has a good week. We will talk to you soon.

Aaaahhh!!! Can't believe Christopher is holding that snake! What a boy thing!! Although, I think Chloe would hold one...she is turning into such a tomboy. I'm excited to hear about this wedding coming up! You'll have to tell me all about it! Post pics of your pretty yard too! We have yet to get ours looking right, although we did get rid of the big bush tree that was hiding our house!! Maybe I should have just emailed instead of commenting...this is really long :)

Sounds like fun. Tell Christopher that he can have our snake too! Ours was just a black one that eats bugs. Wish ya'll could have come over and ate with us this weekend. We'll have to do some more yard work for the summer. All sorts of critters out there. Yikes! The kids look so sweet. I miss them so much!
