Pony Boy

So I know I've been MIA for awhile but I've been busy.  I have a good reason I swear!

Anyway, the 4th of July was fine as far as holidays go I suppose. It was a bummer that Frank had to work on the 4th and not get the next day off.  That meant no firework show as a whole family...bummer! We spend the day by going to the towns parade with some friends.  I had a good time and the kids did too I think.  I was sad that the parade was not nearly as long as it has been in the past, I thought it ended early this year.  Turns out the parade had half the entries that it had last year...we had 45 entries/float/groups and last year we had 80+.  It was kinda sad.  It was still fun though and something to do with the kids!  

After the parade we came home and I made pizza for lunner and then we played in the backyard.  Well the boys did while I put my outdoor table together.  Talk about sweating buckets!! Holy cow!  Well I'm pretty proud of myself, I got it together and it didn't fall apart when I went to sit at the table!  Hi five! 

While I was doing that I set up the sprinkler for the kids...that lasted for not very long!  What happened to kids enjoying a sprinkler?? Who says you need a pool? Honestly!!

While playing Eli asked for a 'pony'...so a pony I gave him!  

Here is Eli's 'pony'.  He actually left it in for a lot longer than I thought he would.  Kinda surprised me!  Like my friend said, he must have been hot to leave it in for a bit!
The big boys all thought it was funny up until I told them they all had worn 'ponies' at one time when their hair was long...that stopped then cold.  HA! I had the last laugh on that one!

Enjoy the weather everyone!

Goose Egg

So....here is what I did for fun on Friday!  Had a blast...however I'm not sure I'll do it again.
That is my goose egg...jealous?  Yeah I knew you would be.  Want to know how to get one?  Well I'll tell you how to get one.  Help your husband load the truck up for a dump run and then get a bungee or two and help strap down said garbage.  While working on strapping things down, hold one end of the bungee while said husband works to get the other side down.  Make sure it is either hooked or it slips out of your hand, that way it can lung back at you.  THAT is how you get a goose egg like mine!  This picture was pretty much right after it happened...Frank took a picture...I thought I was bleeding profusely from my head, however that was just my head swelling.  Gorgeous!!!
Here I am later than night after an hour or so of icing it.  I had a pretty good headache going and way tender!
Now you see by Sunday night the pretty colors of the rainbow are making their appearance.  It&…
