Take a little trip

5 kids at the zoo, 1 mom by herself, 1 giant sack lunch, 2 crazy bears 1 beautiful day, 4 hours of fun, 6 miles of walking, 1 evil turtle, 4 monkey boys, 1 gorgeous girl,
0 kids lost---shew!....
it was a good day....
WAS a good day, until Nick broke his arm that afternoon...
It was great while it lasted!

I took a little trip with the kids to the zoo this week. Our zoo has a new children's petting zoo/area and we wanted to check it out....It was a beautiful day and we had a great time! The kids loved the new stuff....esp. the slide! Brian went down it about 100 times!

Wordful Wednesday--Pete the Pirate

One of Nick's end of the year Kindergarten activities was an alphabet parade....each child in his class got to pick a letter of the alphabet~Nick picked "P".......Then we had to come up with a story (with as many words that began with his letter as possible).... and a costume that went with the story....So Nick was Pete the is the story he came up with:

Pete the pirate lives on a pirate ship in a pool with his parrot Peep, his poodle Pedro and his parents Pam and Paul.

Pete loves to eat peach pancakes covered with lots and lots of pink pepper. Sometimes when he eats his pancakes his purple beard gets full of pepper and it makes him sneeze! AhhhhChoooo!

One night Pete threw a "Walk the Plank" party for all his pals...They all participated in walking the plank...Pete's purple beard washed off, but the party still P-ROCKED!

I'm hooking up with Seven Clown Circus for Worldful Wednesday....check them out!

Did I mention I'm 7 months old?

Yep! Already 7 months old...almost 8!.......and my mom already thinks I'm


My mom thought my brothers were TROUBLE.....
She thought they were wild....
She thought they were crazy....
She thought they were loud....
She thought they got into things.....

When she thought these things, She had not met ME yet..........
Yes, I know.... I look sweet and innocent.....♥♥

but keep looking....

I like to crawl all over the house.....
I think it's hilarious to try to get those plastic things out of the sockets....
I like to stand up on unstable things .....
I like to put lots of stuff in my mouth.....
I think it's hilarious to make a really high pitched scream
I take every opportunity to pull my brothers hair....

and I LOOOOVE to climb.......

What???? You got a problem with me climbing to the top of this slide mom?
I just want to see what's up there!
Good thing I'm cute and sweet and cuddly too! ♥

Is there anything better than the sweet smell of 5 clean kids?

I love watching my kids play...
watching them get dirty...
running around outside,
digging in the dirt,
playing ball,
making mudpies,

dirty faces,
dirty hands,
dirt under their fingernails
stinky feet,
smelling like puppy dogs,

playing hard....

there is nothing better than the smell of 5 clean kids
getting into their beds in their sweet little jammies!

Goodnight sweethearts goodnight!
