Just chillin'

Sipping slushies , playing at the playground, having a wienie roast with HUGE campfire marshmallows and swimming. Summer days just aren't long enough.
Thanks for another great day Nana and Papaw!

He dresses like one

Brandon and I made a run to our local CVS today to grab a few things this morning. I was wearing my police wife t-shirt so when we were ready to check out the clerk started asking Brandon some questions about his daddy.

Clerk : What does your daddy do?
Brandon : I don't know.
Clerk : Is he a crook?
Brandon : haha noooo
Clerk : Is he an astronaut?
Brandon : haha noooo
Clerk : Is he a police officer?
Brandon : He dresses like one

I thought the clerk and the man standing behind me were going to roll on the floor they were laughing so hard.
You just never know what is going to come out of a child's mouth.

Back to school

Nathan was all smiles today as he jumped off the school bus. "I looooove the 2nd grade!"
He goes to a new school for 2nd grade. so everything is new. New play ground, teachers, cafeteria, you know all the important things in life.
He had a great day and can't wait to go back tomorrow. Hopefully this enthusiasm will last all year long.

Back home again

Oh what a trip. Brian and I packed up the kids and headed north to Minnesota the other day. We left the house at 9am and got there around 8pm-ish. 11 hours in a van with two kids and a crabby husband suck. But it was worth it. We had such a wonderful time visiting family. Brian's dad, aka Gampa, lives there with his oh so lovely wife Penny. Then there are the brusin's (inside joke), Grandma Pittsley and all the aunts, uncle's, cousins, get the point. Brian's brothers and families also met us up there too which was an added bonus.
While we were there we went to the Mall of America. That place is huge and it has an amusement park. The kids were pretty excited about that. Brandon and their cousin Kelila got to ride the little kiddy rides while Nathan rode some of the not so kiddy rides and just about lost his lunch. Brian had to keep reminding him to breath and not to throw up. We mainly hung out with family and ate way too much food. You know, the fun stuff!
We finally made it home on Monday night around 11pm. The kids were loaded up with goodies from the grandparents and couldn't wait to take their loot to their rooms. Then they crashed. As did Brian and I.
Hopefully next time we'll get to fly.
