This picture is at the end of our night. He had fun and I had fun! A kiss for momma! I can't believe he'll be 3 in a month. Just seems like yesterday I was holding him in my arms and showing him off to his big brothers. Time is cruel to mothers and fathers.Hope people are finally cooling off and able to sleep!

I went to a park yesterday, Mud Mountain Dam. I took Dru and Eli up there to play in the water fountain and to play with our friends. I didn't pack my whole purse but just my wallet for driving there. So I go a few hours up there at the park and all is honky dory. I get ready to leave I still have everything, I get home and forget all about my wallet...the wallet. Today, as I was getting ready to go out to the store to get a few things before I take off for a retreat...THAT'S when I notice my wallet. Or the lack there of. I can't find my wallet!!!! I have torn the house apart and my car, my kids and Frank are all in on this hunt of sorts and they cant' find it. I have lost my wallet I can't believe it!!! I am sick to my stomach!
Sigh...so I start the process of letting all the banks and different places like that know I've lost my wallet and cards. Report my cards lost. I call the grocery store I was at before the park to see if someone perhaps might have turned in a wallet...no such luck! I need a license so I can take a bunch of kids to the Museum of Flight to see the Blue Angles take off, so I pay for a new one. I realize that my SS card was in my wallet (don't ask, I have now learned...take said document OUT of said wallet!) We decided to not flag my SS, cause that was a joke last time we did that. I wouldn't recommend EVER doing that to anyone. That was a pain in the arse!
Anyway, back to my story. I finally decide that yes I have looked everywhere for my wallet and yes in deed it's lost. So I concede to let Frank go to the store for me and get gas in my car and he was going to go print off my temporary license until my new one comes in the mail. So Frank leaves and I take the boys outside to play in the pool until we figure out dinner.
Would you believe after Frank left for the store and AFTER I did all those things that I found my wallet? Well that's what happened. I was going out to the backyard through my garage and thought I'd give it another look and decided I'd check my stroller ONE more time (cause I did a good job the first time) and low and behold...my wallet was in the stroller. I could have CRIED! I just wasted $15 on a license I didn't need and now I had to call back the banks and see if I could save anything. Thankfully the cards are OK and now I'll have 2 licenses cause I'm THAT special.
Yes folks, if you try REALLY hard you too can be JUST like me! Envious I know!
So that was my moment. Do you guys have any moments you'd like to share...to make me not feel so bad and wasteful of my husbands time and money?
On a side note, I kid you not my thermometer hit 111' here today! HOT!

We had a good day outside, but while I was sitting outside I notice my lawn is dying a slow, painful death and so are my roses. Which is sad but man my water bill is killing me. So water everything in site or...just water a few things. It all works out in the end right?
I was watching something today that about made me fall off the couch laughing...someone was talking about bugs and their 8 legs and said they have 2 for walking and the other 4 for creeping people out. OH you have no idea how hard I laughed and am still laughing. OK, if it didn't make you laugh , oh well...made me laugh.

Anyway, today was my nephew's 5Th birthday today and we had the privilege to be with him on his birthday. So since I knew he was going to be at my house (his favorite Auntie's house, actually I have no idea I just always strive to be the favorite Auntie for all my nieces and nephews) I wanted to make him his favorite birthday dinner. Thankfully we didn't go with is first or second choice. I'm just not sure I could have done Macaroni and cheese...chicken nuggets and fries maybe but that just didn't sound good. So thankfully he wanted Tacos too. So that's what we had. I have to say, I have not cooked 4lbs of beef in a long time for tacos...and all I could see was my future.
So here are all the fellas...Eli partied too much and couldn't stay awake for the picture...he stayed that way for a good hour at least. Frank also told them I had a booger in my nose so they'd all look at me when I took the picture. Thanks Frank...I think. Guess they all looked though. Dru's look is priceless though.5 candles! He's also listening to us sing to him...we were quite the choir you know!Here is the birthday boy blowing out 5 candles on a cupcake that his momma brought for him. I can't believe he's 5 already! These kids are growing up WAY too fast for me...I'd like it to slow down a bit please!Austin and his brother Colton...love these boys!Cupcakes are being devoured here!

A Best Friend will walk beside you giggling
"Someone is going to get it!"
I have a friend like this...and I LOVE her to pieces!
On another note, I've now entered the elite group of pooper scooper to children. I had the privilege of picking up after my nephew today. I LOVE my nephew...that was just a new one for me. Poor guy is still learning to potty train and doing that business in the potty is just a bit too much for him. Lee was like that, and he eventually trained...eventually. But I do have to say my nephew is pretty young, he's not even 3 yet and pretty much has the art of going potty down...except for that part.
Well I must go, Sparky is up and thinks it's time to laugh and play. SO not!
So I bid thee adu...and if that's not spelled right, oh well.

After we had Ian and he was walking at 9 months, with each kid afterwards (OK not Lee, he was/is not the norm when he walked at 6 months) we have tried to figure out or bet when the kids will be walking. Frank has the end of August picked (I believe) and I have said the end of October is when Sparky will be walking. I'm so not ready for a lot of things...the last of the firsts...

So that ends our adventure at the fair. We had fun and I'm glad we went Thursday because I'm pretty sure today was much hotter than yesterday. Take care!

We all went to the Enumclaw Fair today and had SO much fun! Some things were hard, like the rides, but that was out of our control. Confusing rules and how tall you must be for the line....oh well. So in no particular order here are our pictures.
So after much crying, I finally convinced Dru to do this ride after he tried to go up the big slide with his big brothers was kaboshed. He wasn't tall enough to go up the big slide...you know the one where you sit on the carpet and go down...that one. We literally walked off the little roller coaster which he was tall enough to go on and walked next door (so to speak) to go on the slide where he wasn't tall enough. BIG TEARS! I was ticked!! But in the end he was OK with this. There is Ian and Dru on the coaster and then Lee behind them...if I had to guess I'd place money that this was the best ride of the day for them.

So far the summer is shaping up quite well. Every year (I say this like I have been doing it forever) but every year I get a little leery of summer vacation. I dread it really. Ian being home with us all day long and the kids readjusting to each other and not being able to keep them occupied and not having a fun summer. And so far, last summer and this summer seem to be alright. We manage to keep ourselves busy...thank goodness! Hope everyone is having a good summer!
