It wasn’t exactly a sunny day, but we decided to take a short trip down to our local beach in our motorhome for a few hours before sunset. We bundled up and made the best of the famous “June Gloom” — the kids didn’t mind at all. Alex, Avery, A.J. and Aislynn all got into […]
Okay so you all know that Rich says “sleep is for people who got nothing to do” — I’m beginning to believe he’s right. I have to stay up way past 10pm just to get the routine things done around here: laundry, dishes, paying bills, laundry, laundry, laundry. I simply cannot get anything done during […]
Remember how I was working towards the Arbonne incentive trip to Cancun? Well, I DID earn that trip, I’m proud to say. But…I decided not to go. I just wasn’t up to leaving the kids behind (it cost too much to take them all) and Aria was just a few weeks old and so traveling […]
We had a few visitors during the last week in August. My sister Theresa from Maryland came out with her two children, Andrew and Noel. When Theresa went on a three day cruise, the kids stayed with us. Then that same weekend Rich’s sister Kathy came into town from Las Vegas to introduce us to […]
Since it’s been so hot lately, we’ve been taking the kids to our community pools and water parks. This is one of them, sorta designed for the littler ones. I like it because there’s no risk of drowning, so I can just sit back on the lounge chair and relax while watching them play, unlike […]
Milo ran away He snuck out of the house on Thursday and just ran and ran. We went after him, but everytime we got near to him he would turn and run farther. After a while, we had to turn around and get back home (the kids were alone in the house) Later, Rich saw […]
I am forever trying to create a more organized way of living in our crazy home, and this is my newest idea! (Rich is not too supportive of it yet, but I know once I prove how well it works, he will see that I have *yet again come up with a brilliant idea!) Introducing…the […]
Afton and Avery The captain of our boat Mommy and Andrew Andrew had to be watched constantly because he kept trying to climb overboard to join the rest of the guys who were wading in the sand bar! I sure had my work cut out for me today, chasing him all around the boat and […]
Rich and I took the kids to our neighborhood pool today. There are quite a few to choose from, but today we picked the one that has the water park area, the baby pool, and the big pool. That way, every child had something that they would find fun. Of course the big kids mostly […]
Aislynn loved getting pulled around by her big sister Afton This is A.J. flopping around in the shallow baby pool Aislynn watches as A.J. practices swimming in the baby pool Here’s Alex ….and here’s Andrew, who loves the water! He will be one years old tomorrow!
Here is Avery and Aislynn being silly. Aislynn does everything her big sister Avery does. Avery and Aislynn sitting together in Grandma’s swing…. Avery and A.J. spent time exporing Grandma’s yard. They used these “tools” to dig for buried treasure as they pretended to be pirates. I love their imaginations! These two are 23 months […]
Here is a picture of Aislynn with her Grandma Barbara (my mom). We went to her house yesterday to eat dinner. The kids had fun exploring her backyard, and I even climbed the apricot tree to help pick all the ripe apricots. There were a ton of them, and we went home with three bags […]
Four year old A.J. Here’s Tony doing the “skim board” Andrew loves the sand! Pretty Avery Aislynn sitting pretty, while Andrew crawls around in the background!
I told the kids that if they cleaned the house for me today that I would take them to the beach — no sooner than the words came out of my mouth, my house was spotless! Hey, a little bribery never hurt anyone. Both Audriana and Afton brought a friend along with them, so instead […]
