Party! Party! Party!

I had the best of intentions to take pictures this weekend, but we were too busying partying with my parents! Tony and my dad went golfing Saturday with Parker in tow. Parker has gone before with no problem, but this was their first time at Ballwin Golf Club. We didn't realize that they had a no spectator rule. I had to go pick Parker up because he was crying crocodile size tears that he couldn't hit the ball. Parker quickly revived when he went shopping with Grandmaw and I. Grandmaw made a lot of "offers" that prompted Parker to say "I love shopping with you Grandmaw!" Tony decided that when Parker couldn't golf with them, it was a sign to skip it. On one drive, his ball and the end of his golf club went flying, never to be seen again. Not being a golfer, I didn't realize what the big deal was until Tony informed me that you have to buy the drivers in sets. He bemoaned the broken club the rest of the night. Mom and I shopped on through Sunday while my Dad began what is sure to be an interesting project for our backyard. Since Parker loves to hit the golf ball around, my dad has began plotting a spot in our backyard for a putting green for Parker to practice on. Perhaps Daddy and Grandad will play out there too! Our fun weekend was capped off by the Chiefs making a come from behind victory over the Chargers! We're now tied for first place in our division! Who cares if it is a three way tie?

Batteries Required

Although Tony and I debated that we just might be too boring for a blog, the real reason we haven't posted anything is that our camera batteries died. Being the wise shopper that I am, I checked prices at three different locations (Sam's is the best buy in case you were curious). Now we are back in business with new batteries. Hurrah! This weekend in our not so boring life, we went to the Balloon Glow with our dear friends, the Coles. It was windy but fun! On Saturday, after attending a baby shower for Becky Kelley (one of Parker's Wed. night Bible class teachers), we tackled our overgrown and very ugly landscaping. Thanks to our neighbor Steve who loaned us some very helpful gardening tools. Much to Tony's and my surprise, I trimmed two of the bushes myself! Parker had a blast helping too! He loves the gardening gloves Daddy bought him on their trip to Lowe's while I was at the baby shower. As Parker put it during dinner Saturday night "We worked hard on our day off!" Tony and I were in complete agreement!
