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.

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.

Enough Already!

This little guy has obviously had it with having his picture taken.

Isn't S/He ugly? Saw it out of the corner of my eye and jumped 10 feet.

Brennan is ready to slice Jadyn in half with his light saber.
I'm pretty sure Jadyn has plans of her own.

These 3 are ALWAYS up to something. They never did tell me what they found in the bottom of the wagon, but from the looks of it they were enthralled.

It's the little things!

Playing at the drive-in....

We are lucky enough to have a Drive-in theater about 10 minutes from us. We try and go at least a couple of times every summer. Last night we went and saw Rio & X-Men First Class. We had a great time...even when it rained on us. =)

Family Video

Family video gives each child who brings in their report card a voucher for a free rental (except for the brand spanking new movies) for every A. We ended up with 37!

Water Balloon Fight & A Quick Swim

There are days like today when I wish there were at least 2, if not 3 of me.
It's really hot today.....think triple digits and humid. ICK!
The older 4 wanted to swim and I couldn't figure out how that was possible with the younger 2. While the bigs were playing and Greyson was sleeping I filled up some water balloons. When Ryanne and Greyson went down for a nap we went outside and had a water balloon fight. After the water balloons I ran inside real quick to make sure the littles were still sleeping. Since they were, I told the older 4 they had 10 minutes. Go jump in the pool!

Are you tired yet?

Once Kolin got home from work they went in again....


Report Card Day!

We had to be up and out of the house bright and early this morning to pick up report cards. Everyone did really well!

Next year we'll have 5 in 5 different schools........ YIKES!

Have to walk for ice cream

We have a small ice cream shop a few blocks away. Everyone can get what they want and the prices are great. It's a downhill walk on the way and an uphill walk on the way home. The walk makes me feel not quite as guilty about having a treat.

Miss Jadyn

I can't believe she is going to be 12 next month! She's a keeper! I don't know what I would do without her.
