(Belated) Weekend in Review

This past weekend was busy in the most excellent way. We went for a long walk on Saturday around our big block (~3 miles) and took the kids to the pool. Its been warming up so we decided it was time for Summer to FINALLY get in the water. The baby pool was a little chilly, but she didn't seem to mind. She kicked her little feet in panic for about 30 seconds, then realized she was sitting in her little boat and relaxed quickly. She is, in true Compton form, a water baby.

On Sunday, Brad worked in the garage and I went for a run with the kids. In the afternoon, we went to Biscayne National Park with some of our neighbors. I didn't take my camera, but Lisa did and caught some great pictures of my family (Thanks Lisa!).

Brad, Garrett and I went kayaking while Summer stayed with Lisa. Garrett had a great time--he calls it "keyaking." He and Brad took turns with the paddle--we need to get him his own before he goes again!

Summer loves being outside and just chilled out watching the other kids

Garrett LOVES playing football with the kids from our neighborhood.
While he looks adorable throwing the football, I think his true calling is as a defensive lineman
(He loves to takle!)
I'm so annoyed that sports don't start around here until 4 or 5, he would love even a totally informal version now.

I have no idea what happened here. Maybe its when we said we had to go home.
At any rate, he's been very sensitive lately and this is the face you get when he is in trouble.
So that's what we did this past weekend--too bad it took me until Thursday to finally write it down!!
