    Watermelon Days of Summer

    Wednesday, June 30th, 2010


    Boys seem to have a gene in them that requires that they destroy things and make a mess. If my boys do not get that need fulfilled in a constructive way they tend to destroy my house.

    Anyone else have this problem?

    I am a big advocate of letting boys be boys and men be men but I would really rather they not pull over bookshelves to fulfill that need!

    Eating watermelon seemed like something they could do where we all come away happy. They make a mess eating(outside) and I get two little non-moving(for the most part) subjects!

    Now I just need to find something they can destroy that does not leave me speechless, closing my eyes and hoping the mess/disaster goes away without my help.

    Any suggestions?

    They would never do that.

    My Family

    Saturday, June 26th, 2010

    Important lessons I learned while taking pictures of my family:

    1. Never assume your children care that you are a professional and should therefore be able to get a good family picture

    2. Never tickle someone when you are above them on a slide

    3. Never tickle someone when you are extremely ticklish



    I decided to try to get a smile from my husband, he flipped me right over.familypictures1Do you like my death grip on the remote for my camera? I know what is important. I am fine with falling as long as I get the shot!
