Busy as a bee....

Well friends, for the past few weeks we have been SUPER busy! Here are some highlights of what we have been up to lately

  • We spent Memorial weekend with some friends on the lake. It was J-man's first boat ride. :)

  • After Memorial Day weekend, we left for a week at the beach with my parents, my brother and his wife, and my sister!

  • One night on the trip we all sat around and ate some yummy food, watched my sister perform a monologue for us, had a mini dance party, and played a serious game of ERS...it's a card game. :) Look it up!

  • Then we spent a week watching 4 of the most precious children we know! I was a momma to 5 kiddos for the week and LOVED it! Am I crazy?! I would love for Adam and I to have a house full of our own one day. My favorite conversation with one of the kids from the week went as follows:                                                                                                                               
          Her: You know, you remind me a lot of my mom.                                                                     
          Me:  (smile, sigh, and feel deeply touched) Why do you say that?
          Her: I don't know. I guess it's because you like to get on your computer, and so does     
                    my mom.
          Me:  (well, isn't that nice.)  Oh really? That's why I remind you of your mom?
          Her:  Yeah, but there's another reason.
          Me: (totally expecting to hear something profound and moving) Yeah?
          Her:  Most mornings my mom doesn't usually wear make-up or fix her hair either.
          Me:  (Oh).  Thanks dear. You are so sweet.

This is the whole gang eating dinner one night...

  • And since today is Father's Day, I thought I'd (publicly) say Happy Dad day to the two greatest dads I know. :) Love you both!



  1. Aw, I can totally see you with 5 kiddos and loving it! You have the perfect calm and nurturing spirit for it. Thanks for the update on your life!

  2. Thank you friend. :) BTW, it seems that I've lost access to your blog for some reason. Could you pretty please add me again? Miss you more than you know!

  3. Loved reading the updates and seeing new pics!
