Happy Birthday, Jadyn!

I'm sure that you will tell me tomorrow that you now have 364 days until you are a teenager!

Thursday, July 21, 2011


We have literally spent the week at home just relaxing. It's been extremely hot and leaving the air conditioning just doesn't seem very smart, especially with a wee little person.

I know the girls are having an amazing time at camp. I miss them, but really really wanted them to have this opportunity. Brennan is already chomping at the bit to go next year. I think the hardest part is that Jadyn's birthday is tomorrow and she won't be home to celebrate. I'm hoping the camp will do something for her to help her celebrate her big day.

Ryanne is showing more signs that she's ready to get rid of her diapers. She starts preschool in September and we'd like her to at least be partially trained. Due to her birthday I think she'll be the youngest one in her class. She'll be going Tues/Thurs mornings. She is so ready and so stinking excited to be a "big girl."

Camp Benson here they come!

Bags are all packed and the girls are ready to go! I'm nervous for both of them, but no without a shadow of a doubt that they are going to have an amazing time at camp. It'll be good for all of us, but we sure will miss them.

After check-in we got a guided tour to both of the girls cabins. Without it I think we would have gotten lost.

Taryn's bed is all set up and ready for her to dive-in tonight

One last quick cuddle before we leave.

And we're outta here! It' was about 117* with the heat index when we dropped them off. Thank goodness they have air conditioned cabins to sleep in. We couldn't wait to get back to the car and turn the a/c on full blast!

Cars 2 & Transformers 3

We told Brennan that once Cars 2 made it to the drive-in that we would go check it out. Last night was our night to go! As always the kids played on the playground equipment before the movies started and we all had a wonderful time. We are so lucky to have a drive-in close to us.

Summer Variety Show

The last 2 weeks the older 3 have been really busy. They've been working on a summer variety show that is doing songs and dances from a bunch of Disney movies. I drop them off at 1pm and then pick them up at 5pm.

Tonight was the actual performance and the entire cast did an amazing job!

I have better videos (that doesn't have my arm jerking around from a certain little boy) but they are too long and they didn't want to upload. =(

This was just 2 streets over.
Another couple of blocks over the road is blocked as well due to another tree.

We've obviously been eating later than I realized.

Brennan: Mama, why are we eating dinner when the sun is still in the sky?

Bad Storms & Corn

We had a bad storm come through this morning.
From this viewpoint yesterday, you couldn't see the top of the out building. This morning you definitely can.

A Happy Birthday Swim Night

We enjoyed some pool time tonight once Kolin got home from work.
Happy Birthday to the best daddy and husband we could ask for!

Petunia Festival

The Petunia Festival started today. Since tonight is family night (meaning FREE) we decided to check it out.

Not much was going on, but we did get to check out the Ronald Reagan sand sculpture that was being made. It would have been Reagan's 100th birthday this year.

Trip to the zoo!

We are so incredibly blessed!

Checking out the stingrays

We got to stingray bay just in time to feed them. So neat and so weird all at the same time.

We couldn't have fit one more little person in the pouch!
She was busting at the seams.

Cooling off by the giraffes. Ryanne was having so much fun she didn't want to leave.
She was soaked!

Sleeping & Sacking

This baby boy will sleep anywhere when the mood hits him.

He was NOT happy with me when I put him in a sleepsack tonight before bed. He usually just sleeps in his diaper, but it's really chilly (It shouldn't be since it's the end of June) and he needed to be warm.

Let's bust out....


What exactly am I supposed to do with this thing?

Oh look! I found a toy! This is getting better by the minute!

I'm still not quite sure what in the world I'm supposed to be doing..... But mommy and daddy seem to think I'll have a ton of fun in it.

There are days I can catch them playing together without arguing and fighting.
This morning was one of them.

Dancing & Sleeping

Just Dance 2 came to visit from the video store and we loved it!
It's definitely on our must have list.

ER Visit Today

I'm actually quite happy I had my camera to take this picture. Ryanne kept saying that her head her ( of course), but she couldn't see why. Once I was able to show her the picture she knew WHY her head hurt so bad and that calmed her down quite a bit.

All cleaned up and super glued.
