No rest for the weary...part 37

As always, the weekend was eventful and fun but tiring. Saturday, I got up early because it's our turn to help clean the church. Ella and I went over about 9:30 or 10 ish. She ran around playing while I cleaned. She had fun going up and down on the wheelchair lift and playing on the piano. I should've made her help me but I'm weak and let her play around instead. After that, we went to Granny Lindy and Grandpa Steve's house. Grandpa Steve became her hero because he had an air compressor to pump up her new swimming pool. SHE WAS SO EXCITED ABOUT THIS. Steve's always a popular guy in her mind but she loved him a bunch after her pumped up the pool. Unfortunately, I didn't realize how big the pool was until after we pumped it up. I had to take out Luke's carseat (good thing he was at home mowing the grass with Aron) and fold down the seat in the CR-V (again as a side note to my dad, NOT A MINI-VAN, DAD) and squish the thing around in the back to get it to fit in. After we got home, Ella took a nap. When she got up, she wanted to immediately get in the pool (see also Splish Splash). The pool time was over when it was time to get ready to go to the movies with Aron. Ella and he walked to see Cars at the local movie theater. There was much buttery popcorn and 7up consumed by both. On Sunday, we went to church and then went out to Bob Evans (or Bobby E's as Aron likes to call it) for some Father's Day food for Aron. Luke ate about 1/2 of his Sunshine Skillet (much to Aron's dismay). We came home and played in the pool some more then went over to Myles's house for a BBQ. After the BBQ, we went home and crashed.

You're right to correct your dad. It isn't a mini-van. But it's not just a CR-V, it's also soccer-mobile. ;)

Sticks and stones, Tori. Sticks and stone, baby
