okay, I learned more...

I learned that big families= big fun.

those marshmallows are so big.

and why didn't I bring a beautiful white dress for fantastic pictures in the pretty yellow wild flowers? possibly because we don't have one-
but wouldn't that have been great?
maybe next time!

a relationship

I have a love/hate relationship
with peonies.
I love them for the 1 week they are beautifully blooming,
and I hate them the rest of the year.
I loved them last week.
I do love that the girls have cleaned up all the petals that were dropped when it rained and rained.
it might be time to dig them out.

you know it's summer when...

your kids make sure the watermelon has a safe ride home from the grocery store.

rainy days and wednesdays always get me down

last week we had sunburns.
this week they are fading away.
our internet wasn't working for a few days.
and that was hard. let me tell you.
but it is back.
and hopefully the sun will come back soon.
I miss it.
but I don't miss the sunburns.
must remember to apply more sunscreen more often.
the boys are back.
they had a good time.
if you call having porta parties in the porta potties a good time.
and I think they did.

this week

the boys were at scout camp,
so it was just me and these two silly girls all week long.
we had some fun-

watched Monte Carlo,
ate pizza,
too many late nights,

but man, today we headed out to 2 places and I was just telling them to shh, and stop touching each other, and just be quiet for a bit.
yikes. is it really only the first week of summer vacation?

heaven help me!
