Our Weekend

This weekend was just beautiful.  Saturday was super windy, but the sun was shining and it was warm (when we weren't dodging massive wind gusts).  We took the kids to Toys R Us because we wanted to find an alphabet book that Reese would like and also her own magna doodle.  She has been using Wyatt's, but it's also something that he's gotten more into lately.  Fortunately we were able to find a Dora ABC book with the magna doodle attached, so she has been using that all weekend!  Wyatt also used his to make letters - free hand, no tracing.  We were just sitting on the couch and he would hold it up and say "Look I made a big T and a little T," and then he would erase it and make an R or a P.  We had no idea he could do that until this weekend!

Brian also read a lot of books - and somehow found a way to accommodate all three children around him.

Wyatt joked around with Hudson on his playmat.

Hudson got excited for baseball season - until he found out that Cano showed up to spring training a day late because he had the "dates mixed up."

Wyatt wants to be around his little brother all the time - unless he's crying.  Then he asks me to "turn him down."

And apparently Reese got ready for Mardi Gras.
 On Sunday we ran errands, and after naps we all went outside.  Wyatt and Brian played hockey for a long time while I cleaned the garage and Reese pushed her stroller around the sidewalk.  Wyatt is seriously obsessed with hockey.  He wants to watch it and play it - either actually play or play with his  hockey guys.  This is just another dream come true for Brian, who apparently spent a significant portion of his youth not only idolizing Ryne Sandberg and Dan Marino, but also Wayne Gretzky.  We had to have a few conversations with Wyatt about bad attitudes while he played with Brian.  Yeah, I don't know where he gets that from...
