Big Blob Hat

Our weekend started out with a visitor.  Eric's friend Chuck came up for the night on his way to Alexandria.  The kids were immediately his best buddies.

Eric was pleased to have a stand in Daddy!

The lake was SUPER warm this weekend.

What?!  Trying to drown the stand in Daddy?!  Is that any way to treat a guest, Dylan?

On Saturday, I purchased a new slip and slide after my Zumba class.  Dylan suffered a low blow earlier in the week when he learned that his old slip and slide had been thrown away at the end of last year.  So we upgraded to this one - double lanes even!

Avery does more of an "army crawl" rather than a "slide."

And since it was SO hot this weekend - we spent a lot of time in the blob.  Dylan came up with the idea of converting his floatie into a kayak and using the paddles for his water ball thingy as kayak paddles.  It was pretty much awesome.  So I had to give it a try.

And this is the famous, "big blob hat."  I think he's referring to the big splash that the ball makes in the water?

Anyway, he kept yelling at us to watch the "big blob hat!!!"

I also made margaritas in the Vitamix yesterday.  FANTASTIC.  It makes PERFECT frozen margaritas.

All in all, a good weekend at home!  We go camping at Cass Lake starting on Thursday.  Hoping for good weather and good times!
