Beautiful Weekend

What a beautiful weekend. We all enjoyed the lovely weather over the weekend. On Sunday afternoon we headed out to the backyard to play on the swing set and ride bikes. Henry didn't go with us as he was napping, but Isabelle and Charlie had a wonderful time. Isabelle loved swinging and sliding. She is really eager to play on the monkey bars, but isn't quite able to manage them by herself yet. Charlie liked swinging on the glider and enjoyed going down the slide only if I held his hand on the way down. They both liked getting out on their bikes for the first time. Isabelle took off and did really well. We had to have a little lesson about the brakes, but she caught on pretty fast. Charlie has absolutely no idea how to pedal. I pushed him around a lot and tried to get his feet going, but we have a lot of work to do before he will be riding solo. As we were all readying to go inside, Isabelle decided to jump on her bike (supposedly to put it away) and ended up falling over and scraping her knee. She declared that she could no longer walk and would need to be carried, but after a little Neosporin and a band aid, all was well.

I am so looking forward to more warm weather to get outdoors with the kids and to hopefully get Henry involved next time.
