We went to visit my SIL and the baby on Thursday afternoon. Here's a pic of Briley holding her new baby cousin :) There is so much cuteness, I can't stand it :) Look at his spindly little legs!


My SIL is nursing (wahoooooo!!) and he went in for his newborn checkup on Friday. He's gaining his weight back nicely! YAYYYY!! And her DH told her how proud of her he is! With all the feeding and great care she's giving the little man...

Weekend:
On Thursday night we (the 3 kids and I) headed out to my mom and dad's house for my mom's garage sale. I had one here about a month ago and had leftover stuff and they did, too, so we decided to have another one at her place. We did pretty well, got rid of more, but the one thing that I wanted to sell, I didn't. I have an outdoor playset made by Fisher Price that's about 3 years old. It sells for around $300, and I was asking $150. My bottom line was $125, but no takers. Any of you local ladies want it? Or know anyone looking for one? I have pics I can email you. I was thinking about trying craigslist??

So we stayed overnight on Thursday night, sleeping went ok with the kids. Rogan actually had a 5 hours stretch of sleep which was nice because he hadn't done that all week. Growth spurt or teeth maybe? Anyway, woke up Friday, worked the sale, then realized that I forgot frozen milk for Saturday. So, I took the boys home on Friday night and Briley stayed with my parents. One funny note about Friday, we went out about 8am and opened the sale. Greydon started "mowing the lawn" with his mower. He proceeded to do that ALL.DAY.LONG. With a few breaks to play with a tractor now and again. We finally closed the sale around 5 and he had to stop. Greydon never got a nap and slept til 8:45 on Saturday morning. Rogan slept til 9:40. Granted, he got up a few times to eat, but he never sleeps that late. I was excited to be home, too, because I thought I'd go to my BodyPump class on Saturday morning, but it starts at 9:40, the exact time that Mr. Lazy Bones decided to get up. :)   So, we just hung at home and did some laundry, etc, and headed out around 4 to meet my mom and dad with Briley.

I had plans to scrapbook at Archiver's with sunni76and another non LJ friend, Sandy. They hold a scrap mania from 5pm to 11pm. I needed frozen BM for Rogan, that's why we had to go home. This is the longest I've ever left him. I met my parents at 4:30 and got back to their house just after 11:30...7 hours!!! I pumped twice and had awesome pumping sessions with my manual pump. I usually only get an ounce or two a day because I only pump one time after he gets done eating before his nap. I got 4 ounces each time I pumped on Saturday night!! I should leave him more often, yes?? ;)  So, it was really fun to get away for a few hours and mom said he did great. Of course, he woke up around 1:30 to eat, normal, so I nursed him and then I think he realized that he was getting the real thing again, so he decided he had to wake up at 3:30 and 5 as well. We were up for the day at 7. So, I didn't get much sleep but oh well.

Today, we met my SIL and my niece at the local gym that also has a water park http://www.prairieathletic.com/DolphinsCove/tabid/62/Default.aspx Spent a couple hours swimming, came home, relaxed for a bit and now the kids are snoozing. I'm about to head there, too.

All in all a good weekend, even though we didn't see daddy too much. Between work and the farm, he was super busy this weekend. Tonight was the first time he'd seen any of the kids since Wed night. He was gone for work on Thurs before they woke up. It was nice to see him again ;)

Hope you all had a good weekend!!! It's going to be so nice this week! 

Locals! Park outing anyone??
