Basketball's Done

This weekend, we had a little prep for our Atlanta trip. Jenise had a tournament down the Cape and we stayed overnight at a hotel the teams from town were using. Jenise had two games on Saturday and then two on Sunday. We also had a communion on Sunday(our niece's) and Jenise's coach was nice enough to let her stay with him for the first game so that we could all go to the Communion. We waited for the phone call after the communion. If they lost, then they would be coming home and if they won, we would drive back. They won. It was such a great weekend and this year Jenise had a great team. It was just fun:) We had a blow-up mattress that worked out for most of the kids. How JiaLi amused herself during the games? Well, the first game really wasn't that crowded so she was able to move around. Right to the side of the benches, there was a small, single, wooden school chair. JiaLi thought this chair was the greatest and continually maneuvered to it. Even better when carrying a bottle of water that she could shake:) By the second game, JiaLi did fall asleep and Danny was so willing(well, not really) to hold JiaLi so that I could take a photo of the moment:) Jenise's team ended up winning(although it was a nail-biter) and as you can see, she was completely exhausted. She woke up Monday morning and all yesterday I heard "I'm so tired." Luckily today she was more herself:) All we talked about was getting to Atlanta and swimming in the pool:) We weren't able to swim this weekend because we got to the hotel way too late Saturday night and had to leave early Sunday morning but it was great to be able to say "we'll get to swim in Atlanta" :)

We are going to Atlanta soon to visit the aquarium and zoo I think. I want to visit their Panda exhibit. Our zoo doesn't have Pandas.:(

Hi--just like to comment to say I stopped by! I love those mattresses.
All three of ours actually sleep in the same room--sleepover every night! We don't know what we'll do when four arrives.
