Monday Memories from the Weekend

Erik's game on Friday was 3 1/2 hours away but it was a scenic drive.  By the end of summer most of the snow has melted off of Mt. Shasta.

We drove past quite a few hay barns.

We made a pit stop in Yreka.

By this time I was in drive by shooting made... you know where you snap all kinds of photos as you drive by and never get out of the car. I love old time towns with quaint Main streets... 

and old fashioned barber poles.

Then it was a rather curvy road that followed along the Klamath River.

There were quite a few bridges. I didn't bring the camera out of the car  once we got to the game since Erik hasn't been playing. This past week he did 1 day of physical therapy and 3 days of practice  and put on a uniform Friday night hoping to see some playing time. He did go in for a few plays which was great for his morale but his knee isn't back to normal yet. We won 65-2 and clinched a spot in the playoffs. we are down to our last 3 regular season games which will be against our toughest opponents.

Saturday sam played flag football. There is just a hint of fall color starting. It was around 85 and was the first day that I have felt fall i the air. It was a beautiful day. 

Sam had a good day playing quarterback and his team won their game.

He did a fair amount of running as well as passing. Afterwards we went home for a bit then I took him to one of his teammates house who had a few of the guys from the team over for pizza. After I dropped him there I went to get a present and card. Then I went back to his pick Sam up at his team mates house and took him to a birthday party of a classmate he has gone to school with since pre-K. The party was at a gymnastics place so I went in to say hi to the birthday girls mom. I had to laugh because so many kids had gymnastics parties when they were 4, 5, 6, and 7 and here were a lot of the same kids now 13 and14. They ran around and were just as silly as when they were 4. 5. 6, and 7.    

The girls always like to make something. This weekend it was a dog house for their stuffed animals.

Lots of outside time to enjoy the beautiful weather.

Sweet baby girl having some fun. She loves to be outside!
Baby was sitting in the driver's seat so little miss busy body hopped in the passenger seat and drove from there. I always wonder what they talk about as they drive around. Hope you have a good week! I will be participating in Kids Clothes Week and will be making a stitch or 2 in between all of the kids activities going on this week so it will probably be a slow blogging week.
