Flat out of fun.

We just got home from Disney World. It was absolutely fun - I'll subject everyone to vacation pictures soon.

But right now, I have a problem. I've promised a room full of kids FUN games on Sunday after they sing and speak in church, and I'm out of fun ideas.

Please help - comment with some fun game ideas!

Many thanks!!!!!

Yo VIP, let's kick it!

Fall soccer season is in full swing, and Blue is playing on team "purple panther".  Here he is pumped up on panther juice (aka purple Gatorade):
Of course, no soccer game is complete without helpful advice from mom, part of the purple cheering section:
And finally, a purple sister practicing her own soccer moves - in case everyone on the team gets the same time.
Not pictured: purple dad, toting 10 pounds of camera equipment around to make sure we get good action shots (or maybe he's just not ready to be photographed in that purple shirt).

A Fun Weekend Away!

It's not often that we have a weekend without soccer, birthday parties, or church responsibilities (thank goodness for conference online), but somehow this past weekend, the stars aligned perfectly, so with her remaining swimsuit in hand, Pink (and the rest of us) set out for a little beach trip.
It's been almost 2 years since the last time we swam in water not contained in a pool, so this felt like a first for Pink. To say she loved ocean swimming (okay, it's a gulf, but it has salt water and sand) would be an understatement.
Perfect weather, sand to dig in, and waves low enough to adequately jump without being dragged around - Blue was in heaven.
Red loves spontaneous trips, and was happy to be someplace new (and without his phone and blackberry for a while)
Green loves salt water - and sand in between her toes - and mostly spending a relaxing weekend with the family!
