We got some good pictures from our adventure to the petting zoo. Look at all those smiles:) I was just thinking that I never posted a Father's Day message so I was looking for some father/son pictures. The thing is...Jim and Ryan took off so early on Father's day for some serious golfing that I didn't get any actual Father's Day pictures. This will have to do. I'm just bummed that I didn't get daddy and Tyler this time around. I did make Jim a fun little DAD scrapbook. Hmmm. . . maybe I 'll try to post the scrapbook one of these days. It was really fun to make and included pictures of the boys together over the past year.

Happy Birthday Jakob! We had a lot of fun celebrating my nephew's 4th birthday this weekend at Domino's Farms and then back to his ranch. Time sure does fly. These kids are growing up way too fast. Tyler and Ryan had fun feeding the animals and chasing all the kids. Ryan especially liked to feed the ducks. He even went for a pony ride. After the petting zoo, we headed back to Rick and Amanda's where we ate, drank, played cards and let the kids run free. We took our waterslide to the house and it was a hit. Ryan can't wait to set it up again. Good times.

I took care of some business and we ran to town to pick up RX and have dinner at (boys' choice) Big Boy! When we pulled in the parking lot was empty and we were relieved as dining out is still a crap shoot. We had a few uncomfortable moments but for the most part the meal went well and the kids actually ate. Ryan wanted eggs for dinner. Big Boy says your wish is my command! Bacon and pancakes secured the deal. Tyler ate grapes with the stems and all and refused any help. Luckily, he was able to gag up the obstacle. He was pleasantly surprised that it projected right back onto his plate and, to him, was still perfectly edible. (Our Apologies to the neighboring table:)

We paid the price Sunday morning. Ughh! Jim was grateful that the boys and I left for church just before he prayed to the porcelin god. The boys took a long nap and I fell asleep in the sun for a while before we ventured to our cousin's graduation party. What a nice party. The house was very homey, the food was delicious, and the company was devine. So thankful for our family.
Ryan and Jim went to the track on Friday evening for the Arca race. Tyler and I picked up my mom and had a little BBQ before we sat down to finally watch Twilight. It was good...but not nearly as good as the book. The characters were nothing like I pictured and the love connection was not nearly as intense. Oh well, maybe it was for the teenies. I'll take my vampires a la Brad Pitt or Keifer style anyday.
It's Monday and the madness begins. Monday and Tuesdays are torture on a 10 hour work day and off to job #2 right after. C'mon Friday. Hoping to catch up with friends.

Just wanted to share some fun pictures from a recent adventure with Jake and Hailee. The kids are too much fun.

There's not much that my family loves more than a carnival. Ryan has been hooked from day one and it looks like our TyTy may just be a junkie too! The first few moments were frightening. Tyler wouldn't even stand in line for tickets without screaming out and squirming out of my arms. (Beware of low riding cigararettes that are just the right height for burned faces.) But after Daddy paid for some tickets and we waited in line...all was right with the world. Ryan got a wristband and could ride all of the rides he wanted. After Tyler and mom and grandma got their fill, they went for a ride to settle little guy down and rest their legs while Ryan and Daddy played. We picked them up about 45 minutes later after we enjoyed a $.99 bargain Sundae at McDs. Of course, when Ryan and Daddy saw the packages and the syruppy faces we had to stop again. What a great evening. We truly enjoyed the night!

Tyler squealed with delight on Tuesday evening. It was a perfect day for bubbles and they lingered everywhere. Ryan was so enthralled with looking up for bubbles that he ran right into our concrete wall. He got a pretty big bump and a scratch. Ouch.
I got called back to work for this upcoming Monday. I pray that I just keep the right perspective.

Brrr. It's cold again today. I vowed that we would play outside today rain or shine and we did. It was very cold and wet and now we all have runny noses. Tyler tried his first cup of hot cocoa. Now we are snuggling in sweat pants and looking for activities before nap time. I remember this day last year like it was yesterday. Boy, things do sure change quickly. Let's hope for sunnier days...unfortunately, Andy (channel 10 weather) says cold for the next 7 or so. Boo.
Little birdies are telling me I might be back to work on Monday. I'm not really up for that! So I'm trying to get the right attitude. Wish me luck.
