Girl Weekend!

A couple of girlfriends and I headed down to the Quad Cities for a scrapbooking crop weekend. We had a fabulous time! 6 hours of cropping on Friday night and then 14 hours of cropping on Saturday. The crop was held right across the street from the crop organizers scrapbooking store. This was a great thing since it's amazing how much adhesive one can go through when you aren't being interrupted by little people.

All 125 ladies who registered walked out of the crop owning each of the employees Favorite Things! The items were received are wonderful and I can't wait to pull them all out and start playing.

The Climber!

Miss Ryanne Ella Claire finds it quite entertaining to climb up onto Brennan's bed and yell for momma over and over again while laughing. Of course when momma comes to the 'rescue' she ends up trying to hide in the far corner in hopes that I won't be able to reach her.

And they are gone...

The baby cardinals have left the nest, leaving behind one lone little egg that didn't make it. =(

We recently got an invite for a rollerskating birthday party. Jadyn & Taryn have done a rollerskating course a few times at school, but Brennan & Karis were in for a ride. I was more than a tad apprehensive about going, but we did and the kids had a great time. However, I can't tell you how many times my heart jumped while we were there or how many kids I thought were going to end up in the ER with a broken bone or two.

Tonight during practice

the girls were getting a tad restless. We decided to go for a drive around the park and see if we could find anything neat. Walking around the park wasn't an option as the mosquitoes are awful and they won't leave Karis alone no matter what we do.

Sometimes Mommy really does know best....

The older girls went over to a friends house today. They were going to spend the afternoon and get some swim time in. Before they left I specifically told both of them to make sure and put sunscreen on beforehand so they didn't get burned.

They got home and a couple hours later Jadyn was complaining that she shoulders hurt. I'm thinking from now on she won't be 'forgetting' the sunscreen.

According to Ryanne

tub time is the WORST possible punishment!

Brennan had his first t-ball game tonight.
He had a great time and we really enjoyed watching him play.
