We love Summer!

I don't know who is more excited that it is summer me or the kids!!! It is so nice to not be stuck inside all day long! We have been taking full advantage of the nice weather! Hailey has never been one for eating breakfast but she is eating like a champ just so she can go out back and swing!! Braxton is so excited to have all his friends out of school for the summer!

My RANT!!!

Okay so you know when you are in the line at the check out, there is a person in front of you paying for their groceries. You are loading yours with the help of two really unhappy children onto the counter thingy! You go to turn and get more items out of you cart but can't move WHY because the person in line behind you has no concept of personal space!! I couldn't go forward or I would have slammed my cart into the nice women in front of me, And the women behind me had her cart so far up my you know what already I couldn't go back!! So I pushed the front of her cart back!! She looked at me all ticked off! Seriously Lady was I in your way? What was her hurry? Its not like the closer she gets to me the faster the lady in front of me gets her groceries and leaves! If you are one of those people out there who feel the need to get as close as you can in the line to the next person STOP IT NOW!! Your turn will come! Okay I am done now!

Easter Egg Hunt @ Grandmas and Grandpas!

Every year my parents have an Easter egg hunt and my kids love it! I am so Grateful that my parents have so many fun traditions so my kids can have the fun memories that I had as a child! Zack had to work so i tried to get as many pictures of the kids as possible and still be able to enjoy watching them myself!

all the kids waiting for the okay to start looking!

Hailey loving that she could find the eggs without my help!

Braxton excited about the Blue egg he found!

Kangaroo Zoo

A few weeks ago my Mom Jill, Amber, Zack and I took the kids to Kangaroo Zoo and they all loved it! I was worried that Hailey would have a hard time keeping up with Braxton but her little legs never stopped moving!! If there was a slide to go down that was pretty high to climb Braxton would just get behind her a push her little butt all the way to the top!!! Both kids slept 12 hours that night! So if you are trying to find a fun place to take your kids ( since mother nature still thinks it is winter) I would suggest Kangroo Zoo!! We will be returning there soon!

Winter SUCKS!! But Magformers don't

With two little kids that can't go outside unless it is over 50 degrees Winter months are very boring! So one night when I was watching QVC ( YES I watch QVC because Zack works Late some night and I can't sleep until he gets home) Anyway!!
They had these really cool magnets that were called MAGFORMERS! So Braxton and Hailey both got a set from Santa for Christmas! I knew that they would like them but I was not thinking that they both would spend countless hours playing with them! Not only do they love them but ever adult that comes to my house seems tp love them also! So if you are looking for a new toy to pass winter days I would go to QVC and check them out! Plus I love to take a bag of them with us when we go out to eat and my kids just sit at the table and build with them while we wait for our food!
