Before all that started this morning though, Tim and I ran out with the kids to do a bit of shopping. I am having eye surgery in two weeks, and once the surgery is done, I won't be able to wear contacts for awhile. Also, my glasses will no longer be the appropriate prescription. So, while I could still see, we decided to go and pick out glasses for me. That way, once the surgery was done, and I got a new prescription, I would just be able to go and give them the Rx and already have the frames picked out. I'm really glad I thought to do it in advance, because I would not be able to see a thing if I waited until after the surgery to pick them out.
The kids wanted to run to Target so we did that. We ran and got Pearl her dog food and we were home for the day.
While I was in the house cleaning, Cameron and Anna were practicing getting Anna to ride her bike. She is AWESOME at it now. Tim and I took all of our stuff to the dump and when we got home, I decided to get some pictures of the kids riding around outside. Anna decided to go down the subdivision on her bike, and I was able to get a good picture of her riding. Here are some pictures from today:
Cameron hates this picture, but I like it... and since it's my blog, my pictures and my camera, I get to decided what goes on it. I win!!!
Here is Cameron rip-sticking and Anna riding the power wing. Only in the south could you ride stuff like this just one week after Christmas!
Cameron told me to tell everyone he was performing a very complex and difficult "manual" (whatever that is) when he took this graceful spill! (note the rip stick off to the right bottom of the picture :)
Anna riding her bike down the streets of the subdivision. I'm so proud of her. She actually is really good now and can go super far. By summer she will be ALL OVER the bike trail behind our house!
And finally, a picture of the fam (minus me).
So, that was our day today. Tomorrow it's church and then getting everyone ready to go back to school. Actually, it will probably be harder to get me ready to go back to work!
Thankful for a wonderful day with my family (Cameron asked me who says "fam" - apparently I do, but I'm the only one in the world left who says it).
