Up, up and away

On a regular basis my daughter asks when she is going up to space. I have to explain each time that most likely she won't be going to space unless she is an astronaut. I try to explain that people don't live up in space, but it is hard for a little 3 year old (and 5 year old little boy) to understand the concept. It is funny how little minds work!! I sometimes get frustrated with all the questions my kids ask all day long. It starts from the time I get out of bed until we turn off the lights for them to go to sleep at night (and sometime even after that). But I like to remind myself that it is good for them to ask questions and they learn a lot with each question they ask. I just love little minds.....they really make us think!! :-)

Happy Anniversary!

Today my husband and I celebrate 8 year of marriage! We've had some good times and some bad times and I wouldn't change a thing. He is a wonderful husband and father and I'm lucky to have him as my husband. He took the day off today, not that we have really spent any of it together since life doesn't stop even when it is your anniversary, but it's nice to have him in the house! :-) Tonight we have a date while my brother watches the kids! Happy Anniversary James!!

Happy 4th of July!!

We just got back late last night from a 10 day vacation. We left on June 23rd and spent 6 nights in Myrtle Beach, then headed up the coast to the Outer Banks (Duck, NC to be exact) and spent 4 nights at a rental house with my family. We had a great time and I'm happy to be home, but I do wish we had a few more days in the Outer Banks. The time flew by really fast and I didn't get to do a lot of things I would have liked to do. Both locations we spent just about every day at the pool or the beach. The beaches in Myrtle Beach were much nicer than the ones in Duck, but the beach in Duck wasn't bad either. I got lots of pictures, but didn't get the beach pictures I wanted of the kids in the outfits I made and the ones I embroidered for my Mom. The days got away from us and we didn't make it down to the beach in the outfits I made until it was almost dark. I took a ton, but there wasn't a lot of light. I haven't had a chance to see how those pictures turned out yet. The last day we never made it down to the beach for pictures (although we did swim for hours that day) so I took them outside the restaurant as we waited to be seated. The girls never got to wear the white dresses I made them, specifically for beach pictures!! Oh well, it was fun and hopefully I have some good pictures to show.

Today I plan on getting started on cleaning out the kids rooms to collect stuff for a garage sale I plan on having sometime this summer. The kids closets are over flowing and I can't stand the constant mess!!

Hopefully tonight we will get to watch some good fireworks and just relax!!

Happy 4th!! Hope you all have a wonderful day!!
