How about some midweek randoms for this rainy, yucky Wednesday afternoon?
Maddie is obsessed with lawn mowers. Any and all kinds. She calls it a “Lawn Mark”. Its the most precious thing to hear her talk about it. We go to pawpaw’s a lot in the evenings to burn a little bit of time and to let the kids ride their bikes and Maddie usually goes right for her Lawn Mark.
Jocelynn and JP had their field day at school a week ago! They had so much fun. They dressed very casual that day and had a blast! An ice cream truck even came to visit their school and give them yummy goodies!!
I love living on the lake. I use to be such a city slicker but I couldn’t imagine living anywhere else now. Especially with our babies. We are constantly doing something outside this time of year and I love it. We decided to take them to our hunting club on the lake one night and have a picnic. We took our small propane grill and cooked pork chops and sides right off the tailgate. The babies (yes, I still refer to them as babies) had a blast. They colored, played with toys, watched boats ride by and ate dinner on a big beach towel. It was perfect.
We have had so much rain lately. As we always do in April. I guess in Alabama they aren’t lying about April showers bringing May flowers. I can count on one maybe two hands how many times it has not rained this month. When it doesn’t rain, we take complete advantage. I put the babies in their swim suits last week for the first time this year. I forget how precious they all look in a swimsuit. I missed seeing Maddie’s chunky legs especially. Oh, and that girl? Can you say water bug? Because that is what she is. She loves water. Where there is water, you will find miss Madelynn Rae. I filled their little blow up pool they got for Christmas with the water hose and Maddie pitched a fit when I turned it off. I wanted to make my baby as happy as I could so I let her play with the hose. She had a blast soaking her bubba and sissy on the trampoline.
We then got creative and put the pool up under the slide so they would land in it after sliding down. This was the coolest thing ever to all of them. Don’t you love how everything or anything you do is just the best thing they have ever seen or done?
You want to know another funny random? My sweet husband accidentally took my phone this morning instead of his. He gets up literally in the middle of the night to go to work and usually stumbles out the door BC he is so tired. I guess that got to him this morning. I thought it was so funny but at least he did leave me a phone right? I know my girls I talk to on a daily basis are blowing up my phone and theres no telling what he thinks about our conversations. It was actually kind of nice being “unplugged” today. The house is clean, everything is prepped for school tomorrow and we have played a whole lot. Plus, I have gotten a lot of work done too. Not saying that I don’t when I do have my phone but not having it made it that much easier not to look at Instagram, twitter or to see what is on sell on Amazon for the day. Hope you are all having a wonderful Wednesday!!
