We spent the weekend relaxing, hanging out with friends, and shopping! On Friday night, we got to go watch a friend of ours, Ron, play softball with The King and His Court. It is an exhibition team of 4 players who play against a full team. Adam compares it to the Harlem Globetrotters of softball. Needless to say, it was fun to watch Ron play and see all the crazy tricks they can do!
On Saturday, Parken Family Shopping Spree was in full force as we tackled the outlet mall about 45 minutes away. Adam needed new shoes and the entire family could benefit from some new clothes. The sales were awesome and we definitely came home with a stash of stuff!
Sunday was a relaxing day of going to church, taking care of things around the house, and spending time at Kristen's for a cookout. We did get to see some fireworks from her deck as neighbors were shooting them off, but we decided to take it easy this year rather than hauling our 14 month old out to a big crowd after his bedtime. Here are just a couple pictures of Everett sporting his red, white, and blue on the 4th.
For an Everett update, he is growing! Surprise surprise! Everett's current favorite food is blueberries. He has eaten over a cup of them in one sitting AFTER a meal. We usually have to cut him off or I think he would eat the entire carton. He still does great with his veggies with a few favorites being peas, lima beans, and mushrooms. He loves ground beef, but will chow down on turkey, chicken, or tofu too. He is getting tall! He can stand up and reach the doorknobs now! Everett has loved being outside and playing in the water, especially the swimming pool. His favorite toys right now are transportation vehicles where he can push around on the floor and go "vroom vroom." From airplanes to cars to trucks, we definitely have a little boy in this house! He also is loving his books. He really has liked the books with different textures on the page. I think his favorite one right now is a farm book where you can pet the different animals. We are loving every minute with Everett and continue to laugh our way through each day as he entertains us!
