Two wheelin'

Brinley decided to get a jump start on her summer goal and lose those training wheels!

She is able to ride on her own for a little bit...
But is still very apprehensive...
or maybe just blinded by that hair in her face?

And she only wants Daddy to help...
"Thanks Daddy...Mommy lets me fall."

Jumping for Joy!

The kind of joy only the last day of school can bring.
Truth be told, it took Brinley a little bit to muster the joy. She loves school and will miss her teacher terribly.

Ben, not so much.

Looking forward to spending my summer days with these little faces.

It can be a little loud at first....
Until you are the one climbing up in the big truck, honking the horn!

And exploring every gadget.

Climbing on every truck there.

Chick Fil-A Campout

What do you do at a Chick Fil-A Campout?
Have F-U-N!

But first, we have to get into character...
hello, little fox.

hello, missster sssnake.
They both eat chicken, right?

Bo even got in on the fun before heading home with daddy.
Nice to meet you, Batman.
The evening consisted of bouncing, hammering...
...coloring, playing basketball, throwing chickens, catching parachuting cows.
All ending with us snuggling up in blankets (mostly for warmth) in the parking lot watching Toy Story 3, having hot chocolate, cupcakes & popcorn...at which point we called it quits and went home.
Because staying all night wasn't going to work out with daddy's work schedule. And well, the low was about 40 degrees.
We'll catch the camp out next time, promise ;-)

Mother's Day delights

Ben's class made a cookbook and each child chose their favorite dish and supplied the "recipe". He even included that you need to "let it cool" because I'm notorious for serving food hot.
I love his quote "I love my mom because I just love her from the bottom of my heart!"
Aww, love that boy!
Little fyi - I have made him hamburger helper 2 times in his life.

Brinley's class hosted a Mother's Day Tea.
She greeted me, curtsied, presented me with a flower, hat and card.
Then served me tea & snacks followed by a couple of songs.
Sweetest Tea Party ever!
Of all the rights of women, the greatest is to be a mother.

New window

Once I had a little white tooth,
it wiggled to and fro.
So I gave it to the tooth fairy
in exchange for a window.

Bittersweet Goodbye

Today we said goodbye to the crib.
It has been bounced on, climbed on, and slept in by all 3 of my babies.
It has been both loathed & loved.
It will be passed on to a new baby.
My babies aren't babies anymore.

Why did the chicken cross the road?

To get to Nece & Pawpaw's house!

"Regard it just as desirable to build a chicken house as to build a cathedral"
~Frank Loyd Wright

The kids getting their chicken skills on - herding[clap-clap], catching & putting them to sleep.

You may recognize this chick...
from just a few weeks ago!
What did the hen say when she saw the scrambled eggs?
My children are all mixed up!
