What do you get when you PLAY HARD & WORK HARD??? A Dum Dum sucker of course!

It was an absolutely gorgeous weekend here! The sky was blue, the sun was shining and there was the perfect breeze!
It was the perfect time for rest, relaxation and rejuvenation!
For some families....but not here at Emmilu and Brother Too!!!
Our Saturday consisted of soccer & yard work!

We spent our Saturday morning PLAYING HARD!!!
Three girls and three soccer games!
Milly and Lucy both had their games at the same time this week, so Lee and I had to tag team. Lee & Jake went to watch Lucy and I took Kolt and Emma to watch Milly.
We met up somewhere in the middle!
Milly is a great little soccer player.
I love watching soccer at this age! It is nice to be able to cheer for everyone and not get all up tight about bad calls and such!

Milly's team won! We lost track of how many goals our team scored. Milly made at least two goals!

We love our little orange team. Milly and her super great friend Anna have such a great time together!  Of course, even better than winning the game is ... 
Snow Cones after the game!

Love watching Lucy!!!

She is super fast and plays hard!
We were so proud of how aggressively she played this week!
She even scored a goal!!

YAY!!! Lucy!!!

Lucy's team didn't win, but they gave one of the best teams in the league a real run for their money!
I love Lucy because she is a real team player and is always there to support her teammates!

I love this picture! I was trying just to get a face shot of her and she was watching one of her teammates almost score a goal. She was so excited she jumped right out of my frame!

Emma Kate and the Searcy Storm!

Now Emma Kate plays travel soccer and this team ROCKS!!!
They are the absolute best group of girls and it is so fun to watch them play!

Emma (#2) gets to play with one of her best buds "Jules" (#4). Emma plays up top and Julia usually plays mid field. We were missing a player so I was able to get a great shot of these two prior to kicking off the start of the game. Emma Kate is a fiesy little player who really gets after it!

We are hoping that Emma Kate will be able to play college level soccer one day! She is THAT good! So fun to watch her progress from the little girl with that huge bow in her hair while she played!
I always love to see that smile after she scores a goal! Her team won 2-1! I'm sure I will have to blog/brag more about the Searcy Storm!!!
After a fun filled soccer morning and a quick lunch it was time for yard work!    It was a work day for the entire exceptions!!!
The HappyGro mulch and a few new plants were calling our name!
Jake and Emma Kate dug holes in the back of the house to transplant some azaleas that needed to get more sunshine.

Lucy and neighbor friend, Gracie, pick up all the big rocks that were dug up and hauled them to the street.
Milly worked really hard with her little shovel to dig the holes for the new plants that were planted out front.
Azaleas going around back.
Jake planted the plants around back. In the front of the house Kolt supervised the shrub trimming!
Milly was so proud of herself.
Caught Lucy in the pantry a few times!
Jake was a BIG help! He didn't complain....well at least not about the work. The pictures...that's another story!Kolt was just as happy as he could be...and that was without a nap!!!  

Stinky mulch going in....
The job was close to being done and we stopped for a little play time!
Fun with friends! (Even friends had to work!) Milly had a good time with the camera for awhile!

Always a little dancing and cheerleading!
A little taste testing of the acorns, grass and anything else he could find!
 A whole lot of silliness!

So what do you get?
1. You get to go inside and watch The Masters (if you're Lee)
2. You get to go play the rest of the day with friends (if you're the girls)
3. You get to watch a little masters and then go eat with the girlfriend and watch her ballgame (if you're Jake)
4. You even get to go get a treat at Fro-Yo's after dinner

But if you're Kolt....then you get your first DUM DUM SUCKER!!!
Checking it out!
First taste....
"I get a Dum Dum Sucker and you don't!"
Probably shouldn't have mixed a 13 month old with a sucker in the grass!
Oh well! Hope you're weekend was as busy, fun-filled and sticky as ours!!!
