Fun Mom Friday = Waterpalooza

This is where we ended up today! We wanted water (Mollee got a new bathing suit and has been dying to wear it). I wanted something new and they wanted something fun! We started here!
Went over here:Weaved around (busy street - ahhhh) to here:
And played here for over an hour:
Then we looped around to here:And back to here:Tried to break our necks here:Two-and-a-half hours later we ended up sharing a mixture of slushies, popcorn, pretzels, coke and popsicles for lunch.
And because the kids never get tired, we stopped here on the way to the car.
I need a nap! Why don't the kids?

Jack and Bunny

One of my parents best friends from college are Jack and Bunny (and as the joke goes, you are supposed to say Rabbit after their name, as if that were their last name). They were missionaries in Africa for 30+ years, but now they live in Florida.

As a kid, I loved it when they came and visited. They are so fun!

This week, my kids got to meet them. And we went bowling with them! Papa beat Mollee's (with bumpers) score by one pin in the first game!Daegan got a hold of the camera, as he does often and I love to see what he takes. This was one of his this time. Hmmmmm.I am very nervous about feeding these two as teenagers. I was excited Jason got to come too!
And when you go with Papa, you actually get to play in the arcade. :)
Not Whack-A-Mole, but Whack-A-Shark!

One-of-those-days! (for Jason)

I guess in 'blog world', in the mommy blog world, Daddy's days don't get blogged about much?


Have you noticed the oppressive heat that has blanketed us? Jason has to work in it. He is not a morning person, but he has tried to get up at 5:45 so he can get out the door and get 8 hours in and not die of heat exhaustion. He is still exhausted when he gets home. He isn't a complainer, but I'm complaining for him. I actually worrying about him when I walk to the mailbox and I think I'm going to melt.

Today was a one-of-those-days kind of day for him! It started out with starting late. One of the guys meets him at our house and this morning he was late. Nothing like waking up early, to sit in your truck and wait.

At some point this morning, he went to pick up supplies and when he went to get back in his truck, he had a flat tire. He had to get two holes patched - thankfully, there was a garage nearby.

Then, next stop, he locked his keys in his car. I can say in the 17 years I've known him he has never done that. He was trying to get the back window open to unlock the truck, and the window shattered. So he didn't have to pay a locksmith to come rescue him, but he will have to pay to get his window fixed in the morning.

But we finally have a spare key for the truck!

But it was hot!

And it is only Monday!

And it is gonna be hotter tomorrow!

Sorry Babe!

Package from Africa

On Friday, I got a postcard from the post office saying they were holding a package for me from Africa.

So Monday morning I went to get it. We live in a small town and everybody knew about the "package from Africa", but it took awhile to find it.

I assumed it was from my sister, but instead, it was from her father-in-law, for Mac! Mac and Gerry really bonded the few weeks around the wedding and he wanted to send Mac this shirt. I am really posting this on Friday and Mac has already worn it twice and is wearing it again today!

Fun Mom Friday - Pool, Pool, and Pool

After lots of job training and a hiatus from the pool, we ended up going three times this week. Monday with Mrs. Rachel to Mama Jo's pool, Wednesday with Connie and today we went with Capps' best friend, Goodwin.Goodwin's mommy happens to be friends with my sister-in-law, Mary, so cousins were there too! Louisa looking adorable!
Mac being a ham!
And we were swimming at a house that Goodwin and his Mom were dog-sitting for - that just happens to be my 2nd cousin's house! Crazy?!There was a slight scare when I got the van stuck in some mud, but with some coaching from my hubby, I finally got it out! Thank goodness no tow truck had to be called!

And tonight Jason and I are going out on a date and using a PF Chang gift certificate we got for Christmas! Whoo-Hoo! The kids love date night because they love having a babysitter. It is a win-win situation!

Pool Date with Connie

We got to meet Connie at the pool today. Big pool, no crowd (actually no other people). It was great fun! And these floats were very fun!Capps even braved the diving board!And Tavis kept doing 'cannonballs'. We had Capri SunsCupcakes

And PizzaConnie was an major mentor for me in high school. She was my Matron of Honor on my special day. And she is an incredible friend.
We hurried home at 2:00, so I could make it to a 3:00 meeting about real estate pictures and then I had more job training at 3:45. I didn't get home until almost 8:00. *whew*
