Weekend Update

I can summarize my Saturday in one sentence: I cleaned house. Karl took Madison to the Adventure Dome for some fun while I got busy scouring, and they had the coolest thing there... a train ride for little kids that has a camera in each of the cars, and you can buy a video of it. Yeah, it's overpriced as all hell, but yeah, it's seriously freakin' cute. I'll have to look at the DVD and see if I can upload just the video, not all the advertising they add to it.

This morning Maddy and I got up early and went to the park. We spent a great deal of time chasing a chipmunk that was trying to get his breakfast - the poor guy kept ducking from us but Madison had the chipmunk radar on. There's a family of them that live in the bushes she's peeking in to here:

Here's the little guy now:

Later this morning Madison helped me change the sheets on her bed - see how that worked? She asked me to take this photo...

This afternoon it's hot and we're chillin', finding fun things to do inside. I'm about to, however, go outside and BBQ dinner. It definitely beats cooking AND cleaning a kitchen. :) How was your weekend?

There's a bunch of new photos at the Flickr site from today...

BBQ? MMMM I am coming over. I can be there in 6 hours.

Maddy is so cute ASKING to have her picture taken, I love it! And that chipmunk is adorable. We don't have those around here.

Doesn't it feel great to have a clean house ???

Well, Lora, once again you hit on a subject that's on my mind. (Remember the heels in D1's car?)

D1 is leaving in two weeks for FSU, so we asked her to collect everything she wants us to pack in the mommy-mobile. I went into her room to check out the stuff she wants to bring with her and I'll report back with my results. It's ugly.
