A tasty end to the day


Nothings better than ending a great day with a nice cold one. When you're 10 and 6, a nice cold one means a tall, frothy root beer float. (In Mickey Mouse glasses, no less)


The boys had a wonderful first day. They both like their teachers (that's always a plus) and had fun catching up with their friends. Tomorrow they get down to the nitty-gritty of actual learning, we'll see how that goes. We may need another root beer float, possibly a double.

First day of school



Another school year started today. The boys were all smiles and nervous energy when I dropped them off at school this morning. I couldn't get a good picture of Nathan, he was literally vibrating with excitement. Every picture I took was blurry since he couldn't hold still. And Brandon couldn't smile any bigger if he tried.
Good luck boys, I know you'll do great!

Great days

We only have two more days until school starts. The boys know who their teachers are, they have their back packs ready and know exactly what they want to wear. I love that they're excited about school. Let's just hope this excitement last all year long!

It was absolutely gorgeous out today, so I sent Brian off to work and packed the kiddos up and we hit the ballpark. They ate hot dogs and nachos, spent their money at the gift shop on crap they couldn't live without and watched wide-eyed as the ball players worked their magic out on the field. We couldn't have asked for a better day. Well, if our team would have won that would have been great, but ya can't win them all I suppose.
We also just got back from Minnesota visiting family. It's a long drive there but worth the trip. We ate lots off good food, saw a movie with kick butt robots, had lots and lots of fun with all our crazy family up there. We laugh so much while we're there our sides hurts. The kids are always so sad when we have to leave grandpa but they are already looking forward to our next visit.

Summer's almost over


I feel like we didn't do much this summer. We visited a museum, saw some movies, played outside, went swimming, rode our bikes and we plan on going to Minnesota soon, but it just went by too fast. I'm going to try to squeeze in a baseball game before school starts and maybe an amusement park but I just don't know. I'm feeling cheated. This new school schedule where summer is cut shorter isn't working for me. I'm not ready to send them back to school yet. Well, some days I am. You know those days...they've been together so much one gets mad because the other is breathing to loudly. Those are the days I wish school was in session. But most days I like hanging out with them. They're pretty funny kids.
