I think Henrik was excited for his creative movement class today! :)

Ollie got into it as well after a few minutes. It was so cute to see them dancing together. Wish we would have known about the class before the last day. :(

We went straight to the playground after the class. Mierae made sure that Ollie got his chance to spin!

And after getting hot and sweaty at the playground, we just happened to pass by Sonic right as Happy Hour started. :)

Today Henrik gave his very first talk in Primary. He was awesome.

Eric has seen a need at church, and he decided to fill it himself. He has been busy practicing at any chance he can get and learns a new hymn to play for Priesthood meeting each Sunday. He is amazing. He has always wanted to play the piano, but he never took lessons. So he is teaching himself, with very minimal help from me. :) 

The girls were actually calm at bedtime tonight and sweetly lay side-by-side for their reading time before turning out the lights.

Just another Saturday afternoon show. 
(Wow, I really need to get more creative with my Saturday photos!)

Eric snapped this photo just after getting out of bed this morning. I'm really wondering where he slept! I think we need to start locking our door at night. :)

Today was a monumental day. My friend offered to help me can peaches! It was such a great time to be together with friends and talk as our hands got stained from peeling and pitting, and the kids played as we waited for the bottles to process. I was so glad my friend knew how to do it all! It brought me back to all those days standing at the kitchen table with my mom canning peaches or apricots, or making applesauce. It was a great thing to do with friends. :)

(And I totally did NOT stage this photo--the table actually looked like this!)

"Sun-kissed." I forgot my phone when we went to a friend's house to play today. They have a pool and a big yard with a swingset, play house, and a trampoline. The kids all had a blast, and it was hard to leave. They were re-doing their playroom, so they sent us home with some toys they had outgrown or were getting rid of. The boys especially are loving their new toys!

We caught Mierae reading like this tonight before bed. :)

 We had a playdate with friends today at the playplace. $2 Happy Meal Tuesdays? Yes, please!

Later at home the kiddos played so nicely together. Love them!
