the Pritts visit

Jon's parents and brother, Jordan, came to visit . . . it's kind of a tradition that they come to celebrate Jon's and Landon's birthdays with us every year and Jon takes the week off from work to hang out with them. here are some of the things we did.

watched this little guy play soccer. he is probably the slowest kid out there (actually there's no probably about it), but he has soooo much FUN and i LOVE watching him, he's so CUTE.

like i always say, "if you can't play good, you can at least LOOK good while you play" :) . . . here's to my little poser-i love you!


we also celebrated jon turning 32. the man can still blow out all of his candles with one breath, but he can also blow up one of those long skinny balloons that most people need a pump for, you know the ones used to make balloon animals and stuff . . . seriously, am i the only person who can't blow up those balloons?


the next day this little guy turned 3! i included this picture to remind myself how he covered his face when we started singing "happy birthday" to him. shy? embarrassed? i don't know, but it was sooooo cute!

we also went bowling, played at the park, played games, watched movies and worked on landscaping while they were here.

okay, so here is the landscaping we worked on . . . we just did the area around our front walkway- we wanted to hide the hose coming out from our sump pump. i think we did good. we were unsure at the time what we wanted to plant on the corner, but opted after much deliberation and soul-searching (well I did) to put our little weeping crab (red jade?) in there. it's an UGLY little tree, really it is, but i couldn't stand the idea of throwing it away ---we had dug it up from the backyard with the intention of getting rid of the little eyesore, but i just couldn't do it---i know i'm weak, but i always have a little soft spot for the underdog. with some affection we call it our "charlie brown tree" because it reminds us of the pathetic, ugly, little tree in charlie brown's christmas.
