Our weekend

On Saturday we got up early and went outside to pick weeds. Austin was so cute and was such a helper. He loved picking the weeds and putting them in the bag.







Will convinced me! We now have a pet. Since I don't want a dog, and Austin loves animals, I decided to cave in and get a few fish. We got 4 goldfish and the boys LOVE them. Best part is I only spent $3 on the bowl and fish...another good thing...we are now down to only 3 fish. I'll give the other ones a couple of days.


We also went rollerskating with our friends Ron and Nicole. It was a blast watching all the kids get the hang of it....Hunter never quite caught on...it was hilarious. Will seriously broke out into a sweat trying to keep him on his skates.


Well that was our weekend...hope everyone had as much fun as we did!

Um... you might need an aquarium. Goldfish are notoriously messly fish. They produce a lot of waste and therefore need about a gallon of water per inch of fish. That's probably why one died already. Our aquarium makes a great night-light in the little boys' room. It's very soothing to watch the fish swim about and here the pump make bubble sounds.

I agree with you, fish are the way to go in regards to a pet. We also have a one-eyed boy hamster named Lucy. And even though he is low-maintenance, fish are MUCH easier. I still have to change Lucy's bedding weekly because it gets stinky.

My sentiments to the fish. We've got a beta that I'm surprised is still alive. As a kid we had a turtle. We bought feeder gold fish for it. Well the turtle died and the fish grew to be 6 inches long! We put them in our pond, which we later eaten by our pet Racoon. It is a vicous world :-)
