What a wonderful Saturday

I don't know about anyone else, but around here I feel like our Saturdays are always overtaken with practices, games, rehearsals, meetings, showers... and we only have one child right now! Chad and I were talking this morning and we were trying to remember when the last time was that we had an entire Saturday where we didn't have a single thing scheduled and we're pretty sure it dates all the way back to last summer. So today we were excited, to say the least, when we realized there was NOTHING on our calendar!
The day started out perfectly. Cohen slept until 8:45!! After we all slept in, ate breakfast, and played around the house, we decided to go down to our neighborhood park and throw the football around. Chad and I are in a flag football tournament in a couple of weeks and I decided that I needed some major practice. I haven't touched a football since my ACU intramural days.

We brought this little football so that Cohen could have something to throw around while Chad and I threw the big football, but he didn't want any part of it. Unfortunately it sat right here on the ground the entire time... he wanted to play with mom and dad.

After football it was time for the slide... It's amazing to me how he never gets tired of the slide. Over and over again he wants to go down it!

Then we walked down to the neighborhood pond. I love this picture.

Now we're back at the house watching 101 Dalmations and getting ready for nap time... nap time for everyone that is! I love this day.

Spaghetti Night at the Lawsons!

You might be asking yourself..."How did the Spaghetti end up on the top of his head?" I have no idea why, but he decided to start showing off his sign language skills right in the middle of our spaghetti dinner tonight and for some reason he decided to start with the word "hat." If you don't already know, you can probably guess what the sign language is for hat by looking at this picture. The battery was low on my new camera, so I just grabbed my old one.

Happy Birthday to Me!

Hallelujah! I got a new SLR camera for my birthday! Yay! I'm so excited to get some amazing pictures! I don't have time to post pictures on my blog right now, but I did just do a post for my sister-in-law and posted some pictures there. Read her blog for some exciting news!
