Today Uncle Tim took us to the neighborhood park and had the boys help him build a trebuchet (catapult). First they tried to lift the 25lb dumb bell. Then they used the lever part of the trebuchet to lift the 25kb dumb bell to see how much easier the lever made the job. Then they launched tennis balls and water balloons to see the difference in distance they would go based on the items’ weight. Finally we used our body weight to increase the force on the lever to see how far the items would go. It was a BLAST!!!
After Uncle Tim and the boys dismantled the trebuchet we headed back to the house for lunch. After lunch we opened presents from Uncle Tim and Aunt April. We played with our new toys!! Then Uncle Tim had to go to work for a couple hours. Simon took a nap and the older boys played hard J When Tim got home he made us super tender chicken to make fajitas. We ate quickly as Aunt April’s mom got 6 free passes to the opening showing of Brave!! Ian couldn’t decide if he wanted to go to the movie. He decided to stay home and play. Joey found out and decided to stay home with cousin Ian. So Mommy, Aunt April, Alan and Eddie went to see BRAVE!!
When we were taking the exit to hwy23 it was way backed up so we off roaded to take the next exit down. We got to the theatre with time to spare J They delayed the show about 10min for those people stuck in the traffic on hwy 23. The showing was for employees of Wells Fargo Banking and their families. Thank you Mrs. Zeoli for sharing them with us!!! The movie is AWESOME and will be part of our family collection as soon as it comes out on DVD. I think the soundtrack will be added to itunes soon as well.

Today we had French toast for breakfast. Then we played more with Ian and Simon!! We had leftovers for lunch and played outside. When Simon took his nap Uncle Tim got out the new sprinkler. We played in that for a while. Then it turned into a water WAR!! We took baths/showers when we came inside. Then we played some more J When Simon woke up we had a snack while Uncle Tim showed us how to butterfly and brine a chicken. We had the chicken and roasted red potatoes and zucchini for dinner. Then we walked to the park to play. Uncle Tim showed Mommy some tricks on the big camera. Then Mommy and Aunt April went to the store to get ice cream for night night snack. It was yummy!!
