I am so far behind on the blogging front. I just cant seem to get my crap together! I think about it all the time, but I can never seem to find the time to do it. So, I just decided to do a major blog post about all the random pictures I have taken over the past few months. I was super lazy this summer and didnt take hardly any pictures. I guess we really didnt do much this summer anyway. We are extra lame, I know. Bill has had to take so much time off of work for all my surgeries and all the crap that comes with cancer, that he was pretty much tapped out for days off at work. Soooo, we just hung out here. Lame.
So here are just a few random shots of our lameness. I love that word. Lame.
What do you do when its 1000 degrees outside and you dont have a pool?
You swim in your grass!!!
Betcha didnt know you could do that!!
The grass was dying for some strange reason, and we thought a sprinkler might do the trick. The kids loved it! Such cheap entertainment!
The only thing is the yard is slightly slanted and all the water went to the one side of the grass and made a huge puddle. Tyson and Caleb thought this the perfect opportunity to swim!
I love this pic!! It shows off the nice tan they get each summer. They definatly got their daddys good skin!
Leave it to the boys to find the grossness from a stream of water. Look Mom!! Look how funny I am! Im peeing!
And the best part of playing in wet grass and mud...The nice cleanup!
I did try to have some sort of schedule this summer. We had "make craft Mondays", "take a trip Tuesdays", "wet Wednesday", "whatever goes Thursdays", and "movie Fridays"(we had summer movie passes). Most of the time we stuck to the plan, but most of the time we didnt! Anyway, we had lots of down time when there was no TV or video games allowed. Having a lot of time to sit and think, Caleb decided he wanted to earn some money. He didnt want to do a lemonade stand because it was too hot to sit outside. So he got dressed up, grabbed a bag and filled it with random toys and said "Ill be back later Mom". I asked him where he was going and he said he was going door to door to sell his toys to kids. Ahh, how cute is that!!
Little miss Avery was scared of the thuder so she stayed close to me! This is as far as she would go.
These two were in HEAVEN!!
I cannot believe how much it rained. There was some serious gutter run-off
I think the monkey felt a little more comfortable in the backyard. She had so much fun playing in the rain!
Why not throw in a game or two of some water b-ball?
The weather was awesome! It was a nice little escape from the heat.
Cardinals camp was starting that weekend and Bill wanted to head up there. Yay!! (again, super sarcastic)
My kids were looking super awesome! Im not really a "get ready to travel kind of gal"
I finally got him to take a picture but he was NOT going to be happy about it
The other kids tried to make him happy, but it just made it worse
And here is the extra boy we had with us that weekend(Calebs clothes and old shoes)
Shes lucky shes so cute!!
This is Calebs new favorite face. He constantly makes this face...especially when hes in trouble. He knows it makes me laugh.
The boys did the obstacle courses.
I have been lucky in the "kids getting into things" department. I dont have any crazy stories of kids getting into things and making huge messes. My kids just make huge messes all the time! Caleb, for some reason, thought it would be fun the dump rice out of the bucket and make designs or something out of it...who knows what he was thinking. I sure made him clean up every ounce of that rice.
It was seriously EVERYWHERE!! Thank goodness for vaccumes!!
Tyson and Caleb both wore black to school one day and when they got home, they talked Avery into dressing like them. They think its so cute when she dresses like a boy. They also think that if they wear black, its makes them ninja spys.
Love the knee pads Ty. Nice touch!
I just started taking random pictures to test out my lighting and I snapped this one. It wasnt until later that I realized how cool this pic was. This day was September 11th and the back of her shirt says New York. Not planned at all, but super cool.
