Dragons, Knights, and a Soldier

This past weekend was so nice. The weather was pretty close to perfect if you ask me. Sunday afternoon brought a time for relaxing and playing with the children. Beloved became a dragon, Special K and Sweet E were princesses, and Big T and Little E were knights. Beloved swooped in and captured the princesses. So what were the knights to do.....but to rescue the damsels in distress. :-)

And run from the dragon,

And use the catapult to throw things at the dragon.

It was pretty much worthless trying to save the princesses when the oldest one wanted to be captured. :-)

While the battle was going on I had a chance to lounge in my chair I got for Mother's Day and enjoy the beautiful weather. Every once in a while the children and I would use our imaginations and see what the clouds turned into. For a split second we would see a turtle in the clouds and it would quickly change into a dog. We had so much fun and the sky was so blue. It was beautiful.

When Special K was freed she spent a lot of time by me and exploring the yard. She is just the cutest thing ever! I can't get enough of her.

I was so relaxed in my chair...enjoying the day I took pictures of just about anything. I even got this shot with the macro setting on the camera. Not too bad. :-) I don't know why...it's just the seam of my skirt, but I love how bright the blue is....the simplicity of it.

Then came a point when Sweet E wanted to be a knight for a little while and Big T wanted to jump ahead in time and be a soldier in the Revolutionary War.

All in all....I'd say it was a wonderful day that the Lord blessed us with. :-)
