Trip to ohio 2011

Helicopter fun and Ryan and my dad got a remote control helicopter for Fathers day. They love their toys.

Park Fun

We saw ducks, baby snakes and the MAMA snake. that was fun!


Pet store entertainment with Aunt Danielle, Larosas pizza, only can get in Ohio, LOVE IT! My mom being goofy with Cadence, Kaelis was all about the big bear and checkers with papa and posing with Nana.

We had alot of fun in Ohio. We left our house at 230am and it was severe thunderstorming and it did not stop for 5 hours. It was alot of fun for Ryan who drive it in it. It was scary looking at times and it rained mostly everyday in Ohio as well, so we could not do everything we wanted to do though,but it was wonderful just being home with my sisters and parents. It always nice to get away from the normal routine. Next year we want to go to Disneyworld,but we both need a second job to pay for it. we are saving our pennies to see if that can happen!
    We had a small party for Cadence while we were there because my family did not make it up to her party at home.  It was bittersweet to leave,but we were glad to be home!

*Waring picture overload.

Relax and Surf Sunday June 19th

Happy Fathers day to all the fathers out there!

Welcome to relax and surf Sunday.  Thanks for stopping by.

Then God said "Let there be light" and there was light. God saw that the light was good,so he divided the light from the darkness. God named the light "Day" and the darkness "night". Evening passed, and morning came. This was the first day.

Going on vacation

My family is headed to Ohio to visit my parents and have lots of fun. I will try to do some posts while I am there,but my parents computer is tricky. Might be MIA for a week. Lots of things to Post when I get back I am sure.

Have a great Friday and weekend!

5Q Friday June 17th

1. What is your favorite summer time activity?
    Sitting outside and watching the kids play and then having a firepit at night with the neighbors. I am going to add in another one and say pool time as well. We spend our days at the pool alot and we all love to swim.






2. Do you have one laundry soap you stick to, or do you buy whatever's on sale?
    I kinda tend to buy what is on sale, but for the most part I buy the same thing. I can usually find coupons so I get it cheaper anyway.





3. What is your favorite dinner to make in the summer?
     Grilled hamburgers and tator tots. Those foods equal summertime to us.





4. Do you have any talents?
 No, being a mom is my only talent. I wish I had a talent,but got nothin.





5. If you could instantly be an expert in something, what would it be? Why?
    Parenting and reading my children's mind.  I have an degree in Early Childhood education and would think that using my tools that I learned in school would help me with my own children,but sometimes they do not work, I wish I could just know what they are thinking sometimes so I can lead off of that. It is not a struggle all the time,but at those moments when it is crazy and they are throwing a fit, I wish I could know just what to do. I don't think parenting is ever easy and never will be,but if I was expert it would be alot easier. Who is a expert in parenting though?

counting my blessings

  I am counting my blessings everyday. A friend of Ryan's and I daughter passed away at the age of 16 Yesterday. She had a brain hemmorrage and lost her battle and the gates of Heaven opened up and now she is a sweet sweet angel looking after everybody. It makes me count my blessings everyday and every moment and want to give each of my angels and big and hug and kiss and tell them I love them. You never know what God has planned and sometimes you do not know why he planned this or why now....but he is in control of everything. I cannot imagine what our friend is going thur and how bad her heart is breaking,but I know that God will keep her strong and know that her daughter is a much happier peaceful home now.
Here is a picture of Lanisha, The sweet Angel.
  I just realize you cannot take anything or life for granted. You never know when God will decide he wants some roomates. Please just spend time with your kiddos and family members live today like it is your last. Please pray for Leana as she tries to mend her heart.

5 Q Friday

1. How close to your childhood dreams is your life now?

  Pretty close. I have always wanted to be married and have a family and have a nice house. Ihave those. I am pretty blessed!






2. What is one must have item for the summer?
     I would say flip flops. I cannot wearing shoes and the summer is only time I can get away from wearing them. I live in flip flops. I have a few pairs of other sandles I wear to church or on a outing,but since I am at home I wear flip flops. LOVE THEM!


    





3. Do you have your kids stay up on school stuff during summer vacation? (Or, if you don't have kiddos, did your parents make you keep up on school stuff during summer?)
  
No! I love summer for the flexablilty and being able to be laid back and  have fun at the pool e veryday and play outside when it not so darn hot!
Kendric is in summer adventure right now just to prepare for Kindergarten in the fall,but otherwise no school stuff. Of course their is learning through play and helping me at the store by identifying numbers on the price or reading the letters,but otherwise it is just fun and games. My mind is on summer things.




4. Do you can or freeze fresh produce?

 None, I really do not have time right now. I so wish I did! It is on my future list of things to do!





5. Do you get ready for the day first thing in the morning?

   No, only if something is going on. When I work in the fall,yes, but summer time, whenever I feel like it! The same with the kids,however, my daughter likes to get dressed as soon as she gets up. wierd, I know.

Weekend Fun

 I love summer weekends.  On Sat we went to the pool for the first time this year. Water was still a little chilly,but was not bad. I was not sure how Kaelis would do in the water,but she does pretty well. I have a little floater that I put her in and she just floats. She is so darn cute in her swimsuit.
Kendric is swimming without floaties now so that rocks. He is even starting to dive for things underwater. Cadence is swimming everywhere now as well, so it is easier this time around.

I look forward to many more visits to the pool. 



This game was great. the loved it. It was going on a roller coaster. It was blurry becasue they were moving.


Kaelis had fun just watching and hanging out.
Sun afternoon we had Ryan's annual get together. It was at Powerplay family entertainment center. It was so much fun. They have video games, whirlly ball, laser tag and so much more. The kids said it was the funnest place. We will go back./ Great place for birthday parties.

5 Q Friday June 2

1. If you had to choose, how would you prefer to choose to spend money...on landscaping or a pool?

 Landscaping for sure. Do not really want a pool. We have in the neighborhood and they are to much to keep up with and I would be worried about one of my kiddos jumping in. I would love to landscape my backyard. we are right on the parkway and everybody can see the back.






2. (Scott likes to get things stirred up...) Death penalty, yay or nay?
  Death penalty yes, when the situation is right. I hate when I hear crimminals getting out of prison and doing the same crime,but then I feel like we should not treat evil with evil. I go back and forth. This is a tough one and I am just going to keep it simple and not go on and on about it.





3. What's the worst thing your kid has gotten into when you turned your back/blogged/showered/blinked?
  My makeup. My daughter did this when I was taking a shower. I might have really been enjoying it because I did not see this happen! All over her face and the floor. She also got into my tampons. That was awsome!





4. How often do you REALLY go to the dentist?

  Well, it has been a year since I have been because I had no dental insurance for awhile,but I am going soon because I have now have it. Seriously, I hate the dentist with a passion, so I make sure I take care of my teeth,but I ususally go every 6 months. A year I know, too long, but why go when nothing hurts, right?





5. What is your favorite animal (doesn't have to be a pet-type animal)?
   Penguin. I love the waddles and just they swim and stand and everything about them. I have always loved ever since I was little.

First day of summer school

Today was the first day of summer School. Kendric was so excited. I think a little hestiant when he was getting on the big yellow bus,but soon he will love it. he is only the bus for a mile. I cannot believe I have a schoolager now. I miss him dearly,but I know that he is having a blast!
