Was that Sun we saw this weekend? Soaking it in!

It was a relaxing weekend around here … well at least Saturday was I actually (know don’t fall over) sat down on the couch and watch a DVD. I’m a little slow as you know with some TV series so I’m now into Criminal Minds and Netflix send me over the first season (well at least one of the cd’s).
Caden of course enjoyed his time, slept with daddy, was my taste tester and of course tried out his music abilities on his friends Barbie keyboard Smile.

Sunday was a super sunny day so we headed up to my parents to test out the new helicopters my parents bought. It was slow going trying to get it to go up then all of a sudden Cole got it and up it went, and up and up. Then it started to go sideways. We shut the power off on the remote thinking ok it will drop down. But NOPE it just kept going at one point it did come back towards us for a glimmer of hope then it squashed it by flying away and then down it went into the forest … lol.

Bapa went back home and our friend Khari came to meet us at the park. We had fun playing tag and enjoying the playground. We even enjoyed some watermelon!

We started our 2nd month of swim class, Caden still doesn’t like going on his back I think it is because he get’s water in his ears. I’m going to try those wax things in his ear next time. Cole on the other hand is doing so well that his teacher thinks he is probably ready to already move up to the next class! Way to go Cole!!

And for your viewing pleasure we have a yummy cupcake that I made for Cole’s class as a belated birthday. His birthday was on the previous Sat with the holiday (Good Friday & Easter) his class had Thurs, Fri & Mon off. So we couldn’t do a real party on his day. Since we live in Washington and don’t see sunshine that often I made suns. Of course I’M a NUT and put the candy corn backwards … lol but it still worked! I made Banana Cupcakes and then Sunshine Cupcakes.
