The Weekend

My Molly on Friday. This dress was bought for Maya for school, but Molly had grown so much and wearing 5's! 
My girl before speech. 
Matt had been on nights for what seemed like eternity. Our paths hadn't crossed at all for over a week. We texted and talked on the phone, but that was about all I saw of him. I looked forward to Friday night all night!!!  Mason had a birthday party and Mitch swim team practice, but thanks to friends we didn't have to shuffle plans to pick them up. The girls enjoyed their night at the Little Gym, where Molly does gymnastics. They offered a "Parents Night Out" from 6-9. It was a win-win! Mitchell joined his sisters and they all had a blast. Matt and I conversed... Without interruption! 
All ball games were cancelled on Saturday due to the week rains. The boys both had swim practices in the morning and in the afternoon we headed to the Mud Dash! 
A friend kept the girls so Matt and I could just have the boys. I signed the boys up awhile back and didn't know what to expect, nor did they! 
Met with friends before. 
And this was near the beginning. A slide into pure mud. We (Matt and I did it with them ) then had to go in that mud filled tunnel! 

The tunnel had areas of deep mud and was like quick sand. Mitchell's friend , Charlie lost his shoes in the muddy mess !

It was perfect weather. Mitchell was nervous about the run beforehand. During the race he was the fastest, fearless kid ever ! 
Muddy hair. 
The half way point had a slide into mud. 

Matt at the bottom. I started out on my butt, but somehow flipped to my belly. It was so much fun. 
Obstacles on the course. 

Mason found his friend , Peter. 

So muddy! I didn't get a good picture at the end because I was so muddy myself. I had so much fun, I laughed and screamed at points. One of the best moments was when I slid down a muddy hill and couldn't get up. I was laughing so hard ! 
After they hosed off. 

This doesn't do the mud justice, I felt like it was everywhere! My shoes were old ones, but white! A hot shower felt so good! 
We arrived home about 4:40 with the girls and somehow all showered and made it to the Sanner's by. 5:10. We were there to celebrate Jake!! 
A beautiful afternoon for being outside. 
Opening gifts. 
Birthday ice cream pies ! 
Happy 8th Jake! Hard to believe! 
We left pretty early and were all pretty tired . A fun day!
