Mark, Anthony and I spent the day at my parents' house on Saturday. It was so beautiful outside that we spent most of the day in the shade of the trees in my parents' backyard. Anthony enjoyed the outside time for the most part as evidenced by the pictures:

And then! Oh, boy. What a fit! Anthony decided he wanted to be inside. And there was nothing we could say or do to convince him that outside was more fun. And that no one else wanted to go inside. So we ignored the tantrum:

Then Mark caved (OK, five minutes later Mark picked Anthony up once he figured Anthony wasn't going to stop until he made himself sick). Anthony was sweating and panting. It sounds worse than it was, I promise. It was really more funny than anything.

All Anthony wanted was this toy, outside. So we got a sheet and let him play with it outside. Anyone else have this cool barn when they were kids?

It was really a good day...and LSU won, too! Barely, and it wasn't a pretty game, but they won. I'll take it.

Hope y'all are enjoying the wonderful weather that we have!

Love, Laurie, Mark and Anthony

Wow, has Anthony changed. I can't believe he will be TWO in a month!! I hope the therapy works and you find someone you are comfortable with. I don't post on CLASS much anymore. I just check websites, but I didn't have yours until you posted recently! I hope Anthony continues to do well!

Now, why would you lock your son in a dog cage? LOL, just kidding Laurie! Love the pictures. Even tempare tantrum pictures are great. I have some of the girls, and it might not have been cute at the time, but when I look back now they are just adorable. You have to remember all of their facial expressions, not just the smiles.

It WAS beautiful this weekend. And yes, I had that same barn! Is that the ones that moos or something when the little door at the top is opened? I miss that barn. Wish I still had it.

Rhett had the same Fisher Price barn - he loved it too - he's 30 now :)
