Camping Soon

We are off to the woods again this weekend. I really think about this weekend all year long. It lingers in my mind for a couple of reasons. I ALWAYS freeze. You would think that being from Montana would mean I wouldn't have my head in my tush but you would be wrong. I ALWAYS am stunned at how dirty my child are after the weekend. The amount of clothes that we go through.... AND the crazy amount of laundry when I get home. Crazy amounts. I ALWAYS mispack something. One year I brought one sweatshirt for myself for the weekend. Last year I only brought one shoe for Crewe. I ALWAYS am impressed with the food. We eat like kings. There are nine families that all go camping together. We all chip in for the food. Planning, cooking and preparing. Truly, like Kings. I ALWAYS have the BEST time! We sit around and chat. Play games. Visit. Read magazines. Go for walks. Stay up late talking. As stressed as I ALWAYS am when planning, I still look forward to the next year. we come.

Mother in the Hood

My children were put in bed last night at 6:30pm. I dreamed that I put them into bed at 4:30pm. That was the kind of day we were having. And really it was my fault. I let them stay up super late on Saturday night and didn't enforce a nap for the small one after church. Dayne wouldn't eat dinner without a prequel of chips and I wouldn't give on a chip dinner. I am feeling rather defeated in many categories today, especially motherhood. We had a rough week. We missed dance class, skipped baseball and I forgot to pick Crewe up from school on an early out day. What to do about it? I decided that the best thing to do is get down on my knees, sleep it off and start the week over. Be grateful that Rich has today off.

Hitting the Pool

We hit the pool last weekend. I must admit that I was not in my swimsuit but I was sitting by enjoying the warmth and my kids happiness. We had a great time chatting with our friends and hanging out. Here's to a good start to summer.

Yesterday we made our annual trek out to watch the Amgen Tour of California Bike Race. It was a lot of hanging out for 10 minutes of biking. Rich was thrilled! Ps Lance Armstrong is in one of the pictures. Can you spot him?

what Up

Here is the thing.... it is hard to blog with out pictures. I have not taken pictures since Dayne's birthday. So I took my camera with me this week and... didn't really take any pictures. But I will try again this week. Wait, I did take this shot of dayne brushing her teeth. It is for her reminder chart to brush her teeth.
