Mother's Day

I had a fun Mother's Day. We went to church where I wanted to get a picture if four generations at our church. 

My momma, my Nanny, me and Miss Emma. 

Then of course with my munchkins.

Then we went out for lunch and later in the day went to play practice. Emma was the cutest elephant is ever seen in the Jungle Book.

Then we went up and had dinner with my mom and grandma. 

Happy Mother's Day to all the momma's out there, whether we had our kids by birth, by adoption, or if there are just some kids that we act as "mother" to, I hope you felt special yesterday, and every day.

Just Another Manic Monday!!

Mondays are our busy days!

We spring out of bed all bright eyed and busy tailed. (HAHA, can you sense the sarcasm reading that sentence?!?) No really, like most families Monday mornings are a booger, trying to get out of bed after a busy weekend stinks.  But it especially stinks when it is nearly the end of school and the kiddos know it, they are ready for summer, sand, swimming, hot dogs, and no schedules.

Monday is usually our days for Cub Scouts and Girl Scouts. Today we will be having Cub Scouts, but Emma has a game today for t-ball so we'll be rooting for her!

We had a blast at scouts. It was the Building Muscles achievement and the boys got to play outside and have fun. 

We then raced across town for Emma's t-ball game which was hot but fun.

Then it was home for some yummy steaks and relaxing. All in all, a pretty good Monday.

Making Memories

Today was a busy, fun day.

 Landon spent the night with a friend last night. So this morning Emma and I snuggled in bed and watched funny cat videos on YouTube. Then we got ready to go to a birthday party for a friend of hers. We had a blast playing at the park. The. I had to drop some sandwiches by a memorial golf tournament. So we hung out with some friends.

We then had 7 kids over at our house after we picked up Landon at his friends. We picked up two kiddos at that house. Then our fixing-to-be neighbors 3 kiddos came over.  It was not bad since they kept each other busy. 

Then we took a trip to the lake. We took a friends paddle boat out across the lake. My legs were BURNIN!! That is a workout!!!!

The kids swam, took the kayaks out, and the paddle boat out. They had so much fun, and passed out as soon as they got in the truck. 

I'm exhausted but happy.  Happy that my kids had fun away from a screen. Happy that we get to do this as a family.
