Memorial Weekend

We had a wonderful time camping this past weekend. The weather was nice (only two rainy nights while we were sleeping) and the kids had a great time playing with each other. Instead of posting a million pics I decided the slideshow would be better. Notice, the "Red Neck Slip-n-slide" it was a favorite! I hope everyone else had a great time as well. As soon as we catch up on sleep and recover from our sunburns we will be ready to hit the road again.

This is what Max looked like when he got home from school on Thursday, which was his last day of school. They had a field day and could het their faces painted and he wanted to be a pirate! On Tuesday Max's school had water day so I went and played in the water with the kiddos. It was so fun to see Max interacting with his buddies (and he is turning out to be pretty darn ornery!)
For those of you who know the story about Max's "Chinese" friend that is him in the orange shirt.
Max's favorite thing to do on recess is the monkey bars, and I have to say that he can shoot right across those things pretty darn fast.
Well, I hope everyone has a fun and safe memorial weekend, we are headed to Canton Lake. I hope we have good weather for the weekend. Hopefully, I will have great pics to post when I get home!!

Carnival Fun!

I know that my mother all ready posted pics of the carnival, but I finally found my camera so I wanted to post some also (it was in my car the entire time). The kids had a blast and Max was upset that we did not go everynight!
Sam and max actually do get along sometime, I had to post a picture to prove it!
Sam love the dragon roller coaster ride.
Max got a little more brave than I would have liked. He wanted to ride all of the "big kid" rides and I did not want to spin (and Emily was to chicken). So he went on the "Gravatron" with this little boy and wanted to do it about 10 more times!! I remember the days when those things didn't make me sick.
These were the faces that Max and Emily gave us when we told them it was time to go home. It was almost 10:00, and they had school the next day!! Plus, we were wet because it had been raining and the carnival was about to close anyway! They were so sad.

I've been tagged!

Well, Sam tagged me so I thought I would play along. I am not very good at these but I will give it a shot. Here's how to play this paticular game of Tag: Post these rules on your blog and complete. List 3 joys, 3 fears, 3 goals, 3 current obsessions/collections, and 3 random or surprising facts about yourself. Tag 5 people at the end of your post by leaving their names. Let them know they are tagged by leaving them a comment on their blog. And by all means, HAVE FUN!!
1. Max
2. Sam
3. Ben
(I know I kind of stole the kid thing from Sam, but it is oh so true!!)

1. Losing a loved one.
2. Making the right choices on those tough "life" decisions.
3. My kids growing up so fast that I look back and say "I wish we would have . . ."

1. To get my shopping for camping done tomorrow
2. Get my house painted this summer (and to finish the kitchen)
3. Get my pictures organized this summer
(All short term, but hey this is what I really need to do!)

1. Checking the blogs of my family and friends (so much wasted time.)
2. Balancing my checkbook (it has to be correct and I do it about everyday!) Pathetic I know.
3. ??? I really can't think of another one (I wish it was house cleaning, but that is way down on my priority list!!)

Facts about myself
1. I love being the mother of three boys!!
2. I love to read, but don't have nearly enough time for it!
3. I'm so competitive that I have realized that neither myself nor my children may live through little league!!

Alrighty...hope that was fun for all to read. Now I will TAG: Mom, Annie, Katie, and Sally!

The Big Bash!

We had Ben's birthday party Saturday evening and a great time was had by all!! Of course, Ben received way to many gifts and LOVED his cake! Thanks everyone for coming to celebrate with us.

Just getting a little taste of that cake!
Really loving that cake!!
Getting cleaned up after enjoying his first birthday cake!!
As a side note, all of these pics are from my mom's camera because I can't find mine. Nice huh? I have a ton more things I would like to post, and I know I used it Saturday morning but now it has disappeared. Of I don't post for awhile it is because I can't find my camera (it is beginning to cause me some anxiety).

My baby is officially 1

yes. it's true, one year ago (yesterday) Ben came into the world. It really has flown by so fast. He is such a blessing and was such a good baby. He is beginning to display his independence and a little "attitude" but what can you expect with two big brothers that never leave you alone! He is finally beginning to take a step or two (yes, I just watched him) and will probably be in school before I know it. We are having his party tonight, so stay tuned for celebration pics!!

Lost treasure!!

I came across my old digital camera that broke like two summers ago, and I thought to myself "I wonder what is on here?" and viola, pictures that I don't even remember taking. Some of these were just to darn cute not to post and again (I seem like a broken record) it makes me realize how fast my kids are growing up!!
Playing in the rain!!
Playing in the yard (and yes Sam is naked!)
Ready to go bed!!
Future Woodward Boomer Football players in training!!

Just couldn't wait!!

Okay, so I know that a lot of you are going to see this invite before you actually receive yours in the mail, but I just couldn't help myself. I love the pictures and it turned out pretty darn cute. He was being such a pill when Katie tried to take the pictures I can't believe she got any good ones!! Thanks Katie!
(Yes, we fixed the typo before we had it printed!!)

Happy Birthday Emily!!

I can't believe that my neice is six years old today!! I can remember the day she was born like it was yesterday. Of course while Sally was in labor I was thinking to myself "I have to do this in five months UGH"
Emily is an awesome little girl with alot of personality!! She cracks me up all of the time. She is beautiful and turning into an awesome young lady and I am pround to be her aunt. I love you Em.
