fun times

seriously....all i wanted was one nice picture.

anyhow we had a quick trip "home" last week to see family, friends, and of course a trip to H&M. i was able to visit my 2 dear college friends, Kim and Jana, and let all of our kids play together. it's funny with good friends that it doesn't matter how much time has gone by, you can still drain a pot of coffee and talk for hours upon hours right where you left off. I miss you guys!

She lost some teeth!

Syndey lost her first 2 teeth! She was so absolutely proud after wiggling and wiggling what seemed like forever to her. The dentist informed her back in April that they were loose, and she'd been working on them since. She would not let us pull them out though, even when one was literally hanging by a thread ....she was willing to wait till kindergarden if she had to and let the teacher pull them out...way more special. She lost the first one in the grocery store parking lot, and the 2nd one she lost while camping. We had to look around in the dirt to find it. She slept with the lights on hoping she could wait up and catch a glimpse of the tooth fairy. She wanted to know what color her outfit was, if she was tiny enough to fit under her door, if she was a "he" like her brother insisted, or a "she" etc. It's funny how you get so excited when your oldest starts doing new things, (or looses their first tooth :) ......but when child #2 follows suit, you realize just how fast they are growing up and that just makes me sad.

4th of July

For the 4th of July we went camping and stayed at a Yogi Bear Jellystone Campground. I must say I was skeptical about going there because we're more of a state park family, but the kids loved it! There were so many activities and a really nice pool. You can't beat a Hey, Hey Hey ride with Yogi Bear!

I did it!

I did it! After 2 years of procrastinating I finally sat down and started a blog, and it truly is as simple as everyone says! My goal is to stay in touch with friends and family that i don't get to see that often.
