A Few Truths

Truth:  Sometimes box forts are way cooler than any toys we bring to Papa and Nana’s house. Truth:  This week we have crossed a few things off our summer fun list, but with less than three weeks to go I don’t think we will get all of them crossed off and I am ok with…

A Glimpse at the future

We got a glimpse into Hayden’s possible future when he attended college at the end of June. He didn’t go alone, Andy’s parents did an overnight with him at Grandpa’s college university.  It was called Grandparent university for the weekend. Hayden with the help of  Grandma and Grandpa and the teacher got to design his…

Magical place

  This is my magical place.  You know the one that brings back such fond memories from childhood.  This is where I spent my summers as a child.  Often times you could only see my feet in the water, I stayed in this lake for hours on end. I love that I get to share…

Gearing up

I am gearing up for the 4th of July, it will be here before I know it.  It is a fun holiday.  I am wondering if Maddy will like fireworks this year, Hayden has never been a big fan.  Neither of my children like loud noises. Yesterday at lunch Hayden asked me out of the…

How will we get to the Marry?

The streets are closed around us today, which basically means our dead end street is closed, because we need that main street to get out of here. When Maddy awoke I told her that the streets were closed today.  And that is when she uttered the cutest thing “But how will we get to the…

A First Ballet recital

Maddy had her very first ballet recital two weeks ago. It was the sweetest thing to watch, I was a little teary eyed at the sight of her dancing her heart out. She was so excited before the recital, I wasn’t worried about her being scared.  She did great at her rehearsal and ahem, she…

Spitfire

This is Madelynn, otherwise known as my little spitfire.  She might be little, but man does she pack a punch.  This is how we roll these days, usually she is adorned in more jewelry than this and now can be seen sporting a purse on most outings. She talked me into these shoes one day…

Got straws?

Maddy is my milk drinker.  She LOVES milk.  Hayden used to like it but he prefers water.  Milk is so important for kids to drink.  I realized one day awhile ago that my kids love straws, they think they are the best thing ever. So I tried an experiment, served milk with straws, to see…

When the limit is hit

I find that I always expect that I should be able to get more crammed into a day than I can. I am not sure if this is because I don’t plan for the fact that I have  Maddy with me most days and she has her own plan.  Why is it I forget that…

It’s Friday and It’s spring break

Today is the start of Hayden and Maddy’s Spring break. We have no plans to travel anywhere, we are going to stay put and have a staycation. Hayden likes nothing more than to have nowhere we have to go. But today I had grand plans.  I wanted to start this staycation off right.  So a…
