Tennis anyone?

Brody has been very busy this month at work. This past weekend he worked a tournament. The weather was SO beautiful here that we decided to go watch some tennis. Clark was a champ and was happy to smile at anyone that looked his way. It was the first time Scarlett actually watched a match and there was a little to learn. She sat on the grass right in front of the court to get a good view. Our conversation went something like this:
Scarlett: (with head going from left to right) full voice: Oh, that man missed. But he will try again
Me: in a tiny whisper: yes, he missed, but we have to be very quiet when we watch tennis
Scarlett: loud voice again: He is yellin'. It's not nice to yell.
Me: in a quiet voice again: no, it's not nice to lose your temper, but you HAVE to whisper

Eventually she got the hang of it and really loved watching. The next day, we decided to go out again. Sadly, we missed the finals because Clark needed a nap, but we did have time for Scarlett to play a little with Daddy. She MAYBE hit three balls the entire time, but she still had a blast.

showing off her racket
picking up balls...I think this was her favorite part
kinda looks like she wore Brody out sweet Clark taking in the view

Weekend Fun!

Brody was out of town Thursday through Sunday for a tennis convention. I am SO thankful he is only gone once a year because we really miss him when he's gone. I have such a great family, though...our weekend was full of time with everyone:

Friday we played outside and blew bubbles:
Friday night Jaime came over for dinner.We watched Sixteen Candles and made gifts for the kids teachers:
Saturday my parents came over. My awesome mom did some painting:

My sweet dad made sure Clark got a good nap:
Saturday night Jordan and Maegan came over for dinner and games:
I had a great time with my sister, brother and sister in law, and my parents are just amazing. They even took Scarlett to church on Sunday so that Clark and I could stay home and try to sleep off the colds that we have. All in all, it was a fun weekend. I do have to say, though, that this was the best part:
Welcome home Daddy!
(Scarlett picked some "homecoming leaves" for him...and please disregard the waffle fry in the picture of her in her've just got to pick your battles sometimes!)

New "Do"

Look closely...Clark has a new hairdo. How, you might ask, does one get such a cool look?

1. eat applesauce
2. spit up
3. roll around in it
...yes, for the low price of $0.56 you too can look this good!
