We have had a busy weekend here in the Stephens' house.
On Friday, Daddy and Sam watched Ben perform as Horton Hatches an Egg in his first grade class's The Lorax. Ben memorized his lines and did a great job.
On Saturday, we attended our church's 8th annual IJM run/walk. We had beautiful weather for Ben's first 5K. Dave said he did a good job and ran most of it. We just need to work on his pacing. It was a great way to raise awareness on human trafficking.
Abby and Sam enjoyed the ride. Sam sometimes cheered Daddy on by saying, "run faster".
Afterwards, we enjoyed our snacks.
After the run we headed to Purdue's Aviation Day. The kids enjoyed sitting in different sized airplanes, helicopters, and fire trucks.
Sam was fascinated with the trays.
We watched a older boy at church last week who climbed our mulberry tree. Ever since, the boys have decided that it's the best thing to do.
Dave built a play space for the swing, which is still Abby's favorite place to be.
It was such a beautiful weekend that we had a fire with hot dogs and smores.
Ben reading to his siblings.
On Sunday we had the IJM kid's dash. Ben and Sam both participated.
They were more excited than they look in these pictures.
Ben and Sam were in the same age category.
Ben came in 2nd, Sam finished and that's what we were happy with.
We tried out a new park in Lafayette. The kids always enjoy new parks!
