What a gorgeous weekend! This past week was yucky weather wise and Catherine Ellis had the stomach virus AGAIN ...... I swear that virus is like a magnet to her - or so it seems lately. We're all better now and got better just in time to enjoy the weekend! She was out of school two days and with the busy weeks David and I both have he spent the first day out and then my mother saved the day and came to stay with her on Friday .... thank you Meme! They had a delightful time together - we couldn't have done it without you Mama. As one of my friends said earlier this week "Thank goodness for Mamas!" - ain't that the truth!

Now on to the delightfulness of the weekend! Saturday was work in the yard day for Daddy and Catherine Ellis - what a delightful time she had (I don't know that David would call yard work delightful, but the weather was!)! Here are some shots of the two of them 'working':

Watching Daddy cut the grass is still a favorite ... now I just boss him while he's doing it!

In between supervising Daddy, I take care of my babies ... I'm going to be a great big sister!

A little manual labor ....

Delighted about working hard with Daddy ....

Giving the yard a little TLC

Later that afternoon we headed to see Madeline play soccer - she's 3-years-old and this is her first season .... it's really a practice and coaching session, but still fun! We met some dear friends of mine from Auburn at the game ... it was so good to see everyone and for our kiddos to play together. Thanks for inviting us Madeline!

Watching all the action

Deciding to get in on the action ...

Looks like we might have a future soccer player! Uncle Double is thrilled ...

Madeline, Lilly and Catherine Ellis - CE is learning the ropes from these seasoned ladies!

How cute are they?

Lilly patiently waiting on CE to throw the ball ... please notice we are still holding 'the baby'

Finally! A toss to Lilly while holding the baby ... talent!

We ended the outing with a visit to Brusters for ice cream - yummy! And a surprise visit from Aunt Coco and her Mom! Like I mentioned, it was a delightful day. Coco brought Catherine Ellis her birthday gift a little early .... it's a huge hit! Thank you Coco and Meme Lynn for stopping by to see us .... we love you both!!

CE's new pink monkey back pack from Coco! She LOVES it! Thank you Coco!

A wonderful weekend full of great weather, wonderful memories, fabulous friends and good times! Just what we needed to end a crazy week and prepare us for a mighty crazy busy week this coming week. Just what the doctor ordered!
