They had a woman there with some snakes and we thought we would just stop and look. Spencer and Peyton held a snake for a few minutes, Caden just touched and refused to hold them. Sydney held all the snakes. We were there for about an hour and she had a snake in her hands the entire time. I had never touched a snake before and they were actually VERY cool. I want one now, just can't get over feeding them mice. I had to MAKE Bob hold one - and he did, just long enough for a quick picture. I wonder where Caden gets it from.

Today was the day for the end of season soccer parties. I took the little ones to their party after their game while Bob stayed with Spencer for his game. We met at Spencer's party in another park. They all got trophies which thrilled them to no end. Then we took them all to Chuck E Cheese for their own little party. We had pizza and played a ton of games.
We came home and took a short break and then it was off to the YMCA for Saturday Night Live.
They stay from 6pm to 11pm and Bob and I get to go out all ALONE!!! I'm not sure who has more fun.......them or us. lol Of course they are exhausted when we pick them up. Poor little Caden fell and had a huge goose egg on his forehead.
We went to the Texas Crawfish Festival and had a feast. Actually some of the crawfish was so salty we could not finish it. We met Bob's brother and his family there and hung out. I am really glad I did not take the kids because there was a big fight near us and someone got stabbed with a pair of scissors. You have to love people who get drunk and act like idiots. They can't seem to talk without a string of expletives either when they drink. lol

Peyton finally decided she was going to ride a regular bike AND pedal it herself. I have tried to teach her in the past and she was just not interested in the least. Today she asked for the bike and just got on it and rode it all over the place. I knew she could do it if she tried, but I guess she was just waiting until the day SHE wanted to do it. She is a pro at it just like Caden. Now I need to get Sydney interested enough to try it out. lol

I even took a bunch to mask the pain so I could go and play tennis with my children, something any good mother would do right????
Well Sunday I got up and literally could not walk accross the floor on my own. I have a very high pain threshold and thought that it was ridiculous. I just told myself to stop being a wimp and walk like a normal person. Well, everytime I tried a muscle spasms from hell attacked me and put me in my place. I am now on muscle relaxants and steroids and can at least walk around like a semi-normal person again. I think I have learned my lesson and will take better care of myself. Of course I say this whenever my back gets sore. When its better I will exercise and make sure it doesn't happen again. Once it doesn't hurt I amazingly forget all about the exercises until it hurts again. Its never been this bad so I should remember this time. I am also told by my Dr. that I need to see a chiropractor, figure that it can't hurt to try it out. My back has been sore more than not lately.
As for my poor house, it indeed HAS fallen apart and its really hard for the control freak part of me not to run around and clean and pick things up. I know that will only make it worse. I am just now able to sit at my computer chair and type. I have had some serious withdrawal in that department too.
Caden has been really sweet and keeps trying to take my hand VERY gently and help me walk, he is such a nice boy. Spencer hasn't even noticed. The girls will ocassionally rub or kiss my head as they are walking by. They are taking advantage of the fact that Mommy can't get up and make them stop fighting or stop doing what ever annoying thing they are doing at that particular moment.
Bob is blaming my job for my back, I have been insisting that its the years of picking his dirty underwear off the floor that has done me in. I don't think he's buying it though.

I somehow could not be convinced to get in to try it out. I have had a sore back and the thought of having to jump in the frigid water to save them just made it worse.
