This past weekend was pretty eventful. On Friday Libby got home from a business trip so we celebrated her birthday and hung out with her for a while. Saturday we went to a seafood boil at a friend’s house. The recipe sort of gets you there except the one we went to had mussels too. It was cooked in an outdoor turkey fryer and dumped out on a table to grab the food. Below is a picture of Hayden and Violet eating with one of the kids. Hayden actually LOVED the mussels.
Sunday I took Hayden to a birthday party for his friend Sam. It was at a community pool. They had pizza cupcakes and party favors. Hayden had a blast. They also had a diving board that Hayden loved jumping off of (with his life jacket). He got so good that he decided to run and jump off the diving board. This was a bad idea. He miss-judged the distance and slipped. Luckily he landed on his life jacket. He then flipped up on to his shoulders and fell of the board head first into the water. I had a great view from right next to the diving board in the water. Needless to say he was crying more out of being scared than anything else. He had a little scrape on his chin and foot, but he was good after a while. When he got calmed down he asked if he was in trouble for falling. After I told him he was not in trouble he asked to get back on the diving board. This time he was just going to stand and jump off.
This was a successful weekend because no one got burned, needed stitches, or a cast.
