River Babies

Today Vanessa and I decided to take the kids to the Guadalupe State Park. She had never been there and we knew the babies would love it. Colton and Bailey love the river and now Kinley does too. She really enjoys being in the water, but I did have a problem keeping the rocks out of her mouth. I'll be glad when she grows out of thinking everything is edible.

Lemonade Anyone???

Today I decided we needed to have a Garage Sale and the kids decided they needed a Lemonade stand. They moved their stand around 3 times until they found the perfect spot. They wanted to call it quits a few times, but they kept pushing on. It was REALLY HOT!!!

Most people weren't even coming to the Garage Sale. They were just pulling up and ordering Lemonade. The kids were really excited every time someone would stop. (I must admit, I was too) Now, for the most exciting part of the day....... A couple pulled up in an older model Expedition and a Woman gets out. She walks up to the kids and asked them Why they were selling Lemonade. Bailey says, "We are raising Money for a Pool Membership, and it's $200.00. (We told the kids if they wanted to swim they needed to raise some of the Money for the pool) It's just our way of teaching them some sense of accomplishment. The lady then pulls two twenty dollar bills out of her wallet and hands it to the Kids. They couldn't believe it. Talk about EXCITING. After she drove away, the kids both came running in the House shouting, LOOK, FORTY DOLLARS. I sure wish I knew who that lady was. It's not everyday that you see that type of kindness. Needless to say, together we raised enough money for our Pool Membership and had fun doing it. The kids were both excited that they had a hand in paying for it.

My Son, The Comedian

Colton, Colton, Colton. He makes me want to pull my hair out and Laugh all at the same time. He is such a busy body and is always into this case, he was in his Baby Sister's closet. He makes me laugh without even trying, but on this day, he had props. If he knew that I was posting this picture of him with his 10 month old Baby Sister's outfit and diaper on, he would probably not talk to me for days, but I had to write about this so I can show him when he's old enough to think it's funny. I promised him I wouldn't post it on facebook, but I never said anything about my Blog.
My Seven Year old just trying to make his Mommy laugh.
I love you Son.

Let the Summer Begin !!!

We started our Summer as we usually do. GOING TO THE DEER LEASE!!!! It's our Home away from Home and the kids LOVE it there. It's not very often that we ALL get up there at the same time, so when we do, GUESS WHAT, FAMILY PICTURES!!! Last time we did this we had an extra person outside of the Family to take the picture. (No such luck this year) Thank Goodness for delayed self timers. You wouldn't know it, but the Camera was sitting on a four wheeler with a 10 second delay. I would set it and then run and try to find a place in the picture. This sounds easy, but I was actually having to climb on a log to get there while the whole family counted down. Needless to say, we did this at least 10 times so I got a workout. Poor Kinley didn't know what was going on. All she knew was that Mommy was running around like crazy. This is probably why her head is turned. She was trying to figure out where I went.
