A busy weekend.

We had a great weekend of family time and work that had to be done! Saturday, we took the kids to the zoo. What fun they had! Even Tyler, enjoyed himself. They were especially fascinated by the polar bear. He was out taking a swim. So forget they are BIG, wild animals...not cuddly bears. The giraffes, elephants, and lions were a hit, as were the monkeys. We survived for only an hour and 15 minutes, because it was just toooo hot! It was short, but sweet. We hit the pool after we got home and did it feel good! Lindsey is starting to venture out more....holding onto the side, jumping from the steps and wanting to "swim" while we hold her. Michael is also getting brave. I think by the end of the summer, they will be well on their way. Today, my Dad and Charles worked on Natalie's room. Alot of electrical work had to be done. Now I get to pick out a new light fixture for her room. Yay! I'm anxious about tomorrow. Lindsey starts VBS along with Tyler. Hope it goes well. I probably won't be able to get her to leave! Til next time.

Happy Anniversary Mom & Dad!

28 years, wow! Celebrate! Enjoy yourselves! We love you!

All before 9 am.

The photos below were taken this morning, when the back door was left thing you know they were having a great time. The photos were out of order, I was having a problem with blogger for some reason this morning. Not only have they picked flowers, played in the sprinklers, and had breakfast........I have broken up at least 4 fights over a book, kissed a boo-boo, given 2 time-outs and been smothered with hugs and kisses. That's kids for ya!

For you, Mommy! Posted by Picasa

To swaddle or not to swaddle, that is the question.

So, Natalie has been sleeping through the night for awhile now. We swaddle her all up and she sleeps like angel........that was until 2 days ago. She does not want her arms trapped in the blanket anymore and she keeps waking herself up with her hands going everywhere. Now we are not sure what she wants, she wakes up once or twice during the night. While, that is not bad, we are missing those full nights of sleep! I guess we just have to find what works for her. Wish us luck!

It doesn't take much to make me happy..........

I had to post these photos of our flowers in the backyard for you all to see. I just can't get over how much they bloomed! Talk about making my week............the green grass, the warm weather(okay, hot weather), and all of our flowers blossoming, reminds me of the east coast. I sure do miss it sometimes(alot of the time). Hopefully, we will be able to visit soon.

A Father's Love is..................

....remembering to buy SunChips because they are his little boy's favorite.

....twirling his little ballerina around until he gets dizzy.

....listening to his rendition of the latest Thomas the tank episode with a smile.

....changing her diaper in the middle of the night to have some together time and give Mom a break.

....planting sod in the yard, just so his children can have a great summer.

....making pasta every Sunday for his family.

....loving their mother.

Happy Father's day, Charles! Thanks for all that you do for us. We love you.
