10 things

that are sure to put a smile on my face when I am not happy

1. Molly's sweet buck tooth, dimpled grin
2. Colin saying "that's my mom!"
3. first sip of a glass of red wine
4. my dog running figure eights in the back yard
5. my 3 kiddos running to there daddy and fighting to be first
6. my 1 year old hugging my 3 year old when she is sad
7. my 1 year old patting my back when she hugs me and puts her sweet head on my shoulder
8. hubby holding me in his arms
9. warm breeze in my face
10. this list...

I need to frame this list so that when I am grumpy, bitter, pissy, sad, mad...You know what I'm saying... I smile and remember that I have a family that loves me even when I am any of the above.

For the first of many to come I'm linking this post up to the fabulous Mama Kat's

Things I love...

I love that when I am making a salad for dinner I can walk out my back door and pluck some yummy veggies out of my garden.
Even if it was just onions
My poor garden...It is hurting so bad this year.
No sun + tons of rain = crappy garden
Don't get me wrong, its trying. The tomatoes are flowering the zucchini is going for it and the peas are surviving. But any root veggie is RIP. The radishes and carrots couldn't hang. Even the herbs are craving the heat as much as I am.
 mister sun mister sun please shine down on me!!

the sun that we have seen peaked it way through the clouds last night.

thank you my sweet friend Molly for pointing it out at dinner!

New ride...

For my camera...
Isn't she pretty...
She even has a sweet little lens cap holder

Yes little girl, I think you can fit in there..

Stop that little thief!

I think Nikon is going to love traveling in style. Plus this bag is just to darn pretty.

I can't forget to mention that Doug's dirt bike had a baby

PW50 is the newest member of the family and it has been getting a lot of love from one very happy 5 year old


I've realized that my little miss Molly has a word for everything. She can chat it up all day. Just not in English. she will point her little finger and scold Colin, she chases Emilie yelling things at her while throwing whatever her little hands can get a hold of.
but, one of the three words I can understand is
Whatever she is doing she will stop, strike a pose and say it every time she sees the camera come out.

Her 2nd word is Na-na. That word is her universal what ever I am pointing at I want word. Including me. Nice Moll's. thanks for the love.

And of course, DaDa

some more randomness...

The kiddos and I got to spend some time with my sister in laws family for her son's birthday. It was perfect! The sun was out and the kids and I had a great time. lots of laughs and trampoline time.
Little miss Molly found tons of love at the party but she was all about the uncles. The only people other then myself would she go to was uncle Steve and uncle Tom. It was so crazy cute I didn't even know what to do with myself, except take a ton of picture of course.

Here is Molly with Uncle Steve

And Uncle Tom

As molly gets older and is more interactive with her brother and sister I really see the love they all have for each other...

and it makes me so happy and proud

Speaking of her sister...Have I mentioned that she likes ice cream...

And can perfectly hold a pen/pencil/crayon....Amazing

Another amazing thing is how this pretty little dahlia is popping up in middle of all my green onions. That is one very determined flower...I need to take note...

She acts...

so brave...

until she realizes that he isn't there...

Her bubba...

The little boy that she loves with all of her heart...and has wrapped around her finger

before & after

Wow, another week down...Finally we have sun.
I love this picture of Colin because I have one just like it of him when he was 5 months old
he was watching it rain on this day with such sadness. He loves the sun so much. He is out the door in his jams first thing and I have to drag him back in the house at bed time.
they really do grow up so fast.

so much to say...

I always wonder when I've been away from my beloved blog, and then come back a week later where I should start in my thought process. Should I start right where I left off and work up to today, or just say screw it and start from today and work back in thoughts? Yeah, I'm more of a screw it type of person so we are going to start with today. So... here we go, a weeks worth of randomness...

It must be summer since this little tush is in a swim suit
We had our first movie night outside. The kiddos loved it. They watched two Clifford the big red dog shows on VHS and one Rollie Pol lie Ollie. It was such a perfect way to get them to mellow out after a long day in the sun.
What's up ice cream face?

the sun has been such a wonderful treat. to celebrate we walked to the local coffee shop with great friends. Both girls have such great style.

And Molly was happy to have her sister back

Speaking of Molls she is the newest member of the family to LOVE playing in the bathroom sink. She would spend all day in there if I would let her.

Molly is finally old enough to play in the back yard. thankfully she prefers the water table. Its nice to know where she is most of the time.

to her it is probably just a big bathroom sick.

Colin stopped "working" long enough to pose for a picture

And here he is "working"

the sad part of playing in the back yard...poor Moll's


Saturday was such a fun day! After the Farmers Market we headed of to the local fire station for their open house. the kids had so much fun. those fire folks know how to put on a good show!

Both kids sat in a big red ladder truck


Colin loved the firefighter challenge

And the smoke house

But the best part was when the helicopter came in and landed.
here is Colin standing at the back

And Emilie in the pilots seat. she loved it. she tells everyone that she is going to be a helicopter pilot when she grows up. thats my girl!!

and in the back


Em's turn to do the challenge


My attempt to get a picture of all three kiddos together

Em is getting braver everyday. Hopefully by the end of summer we will have her back on her big girl bike.

Yeah summer and fresh veggies delivered every Friday morning! this week its veggies and clams!!

So yummy

so there is is. A lot of pictures and a lot of fun was had by all. We did celebrate fathers day and it was also a lot fun. we had Doug's dad and mom down for breakfast. then...Poor Doug got sick and he is still trying to fight it off.
