I'm a soccer mom

Brighton is playing soccer this fall and his first game was today. It was hysterical, what with all the kicking the ball in the wrong goal, the crying and tantrums(not Brighton of course), thumb sucking, and everything else you could possibly imagine when a bunch of three-year-olds play soccer. The best part, Brighton actually the right goal. Trust me this is a pretty big accomplishment.

This is how Brighton posed himself when we asked him if we could take a picture of him in his soccer uniform. He's a character that one.

Summer is almost over...

...and thank heavens it is(I never thought I would say that, but it gets really muggy here in the summer). We decided to head out for the beach and the NC Aquarium this last weekend and enjoy what's left of it.

I ate five Krispy Creme doughnuts all at one time because they just came off the conveyer belt and they were warm and melt in your mouth delicious. (I know that is no excuse, but I'm just saying). I felt yucky the rest of the day. Oh, but it was worth it.

Also as a random side note, I taught Brighton how to pee standing up at the big toilet today. Yay me. Yay Brighton.

A visit from Grandma and Grandpa Weekes

Jared's parent's were in town visiting for the past 10 days and we are so glad they did. The kids had a great time with Grandma and Grandpa Weekes.
As a side note, I think we've been living in Durham too long because it appears that Brighton is doing some sort of gang sign in photo above as well as a few of the other photos I didn't post.

We had fun on the train ride at Pullen Park. Brighton even wore his train conductor hat.

Just to be fair

In case you couldn't tell, my last post was a joke. I really crack myself up sometimes. Not only was that picture of Jared completely doctored, but Jared happens to be one of the top three most beautiful human beings I have ever met (it is a three way tie between Jared, Brighton, and Addison of course). I think Jared was getting a little self conscious about my last post so I thought I would post a doctored photo of myself just to make it even.
