It's Friday.
We made it thru this week.

Swim meet #1

I have flowers growing. 

That is a GIANT wasp nest. HUGE.

Tuck lost tooth #2. 

Turbo weighs 90.1 lbs. And he's not sporting a sock on his back paw.

Post swim meet picnic.


This is just funny.

The boys of the mixed relay.

I am mom of the year. :)

We went to Schlitterbahn

...and had a B L A S T.
Seriously y'all. It was bananas.
The boys thought we were parents of the year. They kept asking if we could move to Schlitterbahn. It was seriously one of the best times we have had.

But I didn't take a single picture.
I know. I know.
But with the whole water thing and being separated during the rides, it just didn't happen.

I did however make a list.
You knew this was coming right?!

  1. Someone please tell me why boys wear their underwear under the swim trunks. What purpose do the underwear serve UNDER the trunks? That get wet?
  2. I know that I am not a thin person. With that being said, I know what I should and should try to pour my body into. Smaller suit DOES NOT equal smaller looking body.
  3. Little girls should not wear little, triangle top bikinis. (this is just a personal preference)
  4. If you are wearing a bikini and you are a larger person, throwing a white, holy cover-up on does not help the image that is now burned into my eyes from seeing your non-bikini-ready body.
  5. It's called S U N S C R E E N.
  6. I'm sorry 13 year old girl, no amount of stuffing is going to make your boobs fill out that top.
  7. And no, the 17+ year old boys are not looking at you. Promise.
  8. Water socks. Ugly as all get out but oh so worth it.

Happy Father's Day!

Today is officially Father's Day.
I am so blessed to be surrounded by wonderful father's.

My padre. I've always been a daddy's girl.

Stuart's father. He's such a great Papa.

I could not have picked a better man to be my partner and the father of our children. 
I love him more every single day.

Thank you to all the father's out there but the greatest thanks goes to our Heavenly Father.
What a wonderful day to praise Him!

 In him we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, in accordance with the riches of God's grace that he lavished on us with all wisdom and understanding.
Ephesians 1:7-8

It's Friday y'all!

Turbo likes to guard the Legos


He's a good boy.

At the car wash...

I sewed this sweet owl for a sweet 2 year old.

Tyson's American Ninja Warrior course. I M P R E S S I V E

Legos. Lots and lots of Legos.

It's seriously out of control.

Swim team makes this guy t-i-r-e-d.

My parent's dog, Spencer.

Dickens and Spencer.

Free movie at Palladium. Waiting for our cousins...

Tucker stole his aunt's popcorn. He was mighty comfy.

Spencer always falls asleep with a "pacifier."

Snack time in my bed. Loved the snuggles.

Seriously. This is all they do.

Milk Duds

Y'all, I'm having a Milk Dud attack. I am so not kidding. I can not get enough of them. It's just so hard to pass up the $.98 bin and not get a box of caramel goodness. And the best part? The boys can't eat them because they are too chewy and cause cavities. Oh yes, we so go there with the boys. It's called: PARENTING.

This past week the boys started swim team. Yup. They have no clue what swim team means but so far they are having fun seeing some friends and getting wet.

Today, my precious, little niece, Kate turns 4. Oh my gracious! We love her so much!

 Last weekend Stu and I got to have a little get away. A family friend was having a birthday party and since it was in Padre Island, we thought it would be fantastic to leave the boys with my parents and have an overnight date. So, so good.
 this was not my phone, just a funny site on the beach

Sunday night marked a first for Tucker-he lost his first tooth! And yes, Stu did pull it out with pliers. And no, it did not hurt. He was screaming from the site of the blood. But he quickly recovered so that he could face time his Mimi and Peepaw and Aunt George and Uncle Shane.

And I bought a new product. So far, so good.

Alright, back to my milk duds.

While we're on the subject

Tucker: Mommy, will you marry daddy?
Me: Baby, mommy already married daddy.
Tucker: Well can you marry him again?
Me: We're already married. Why do I need to marry daddy again?
Tucker: Because you can get married and have a teeny, tiny baby.
Stuart: Sorry bubba.
Tucker: But I want a baby so I can babysit and it won't be too hard.
Me: Tucker, do you want a baby brother or baby sister?
Stu: Why are you continuing this madness?
Tucker: A baby sister. Because they're just so sweet.

*this is not an announcement, Tucker just REALLY wants to have a baby*
