Lego Land

We're gearing up for our summer trip to San Diego and Lego Land.

The boys and I must have played for hours the other day. Love it. I just wish they weren't so dang small! 

Play Ball!

Our friends the Howards gave us a little date night the other night in return for some things I made for their home. (love to barter!) They have three boys - Will (11), Ryan (9) and Ben (8) that are ALL awesome. When we drove up they were playing baseball and had the tee set up for practice hits, etc. Their generosity is nothing short of astounding. Not only did they love on our boys all night and feed them, they gave us a bucket of balls and a bat to bring home with us.  This is what I found upon waking up the next morning.

You gotta love a Dad who goes out of his way to make the perfect t-ball stand out of my new Ikea planter (ughhh) and a saw horse!  The love was shown and felt for sure.  They boys had so much fun hitting that morning. Blessed, that is what I am.

Skinz vs. Shirts

The boys and I went to Gramma's yesterday for some lovin' and haircuts. When we arrived we got a big surprise - UNCLE!  Hooray!  After the boys got their cuts we went to the park for some fun in the sun.

Before you go thinking I'm a bad mommy for Liam's shirtless hi-jinx... let me just say: one, he got water all over his shirt from the water fountain and two, it's all I can do to control that strong-willed child.

 He walks to the beat of his own drum.
 He pouts when he loses. "Awww...I'm not the winner!" Brother taught him this one.
He is a total delight and utterly hilarious.
