**this is one of my favorite photos I have ever taken,**

1. On vacation, I like to relax, enjoy the sights, see the kids laughing

2. i love sitting on the sand in the ocean and let the waves carry me just a bit.

3. One of my favorite vacation spots the beach, any beach.

4. During the full moon, i can feel the crazy in the air.

5. Up, up, and away, the balloon floated away

6. Bananas go into my protein shake almost every day. my latest favorite is strawberry, banana, blueberries with lots of ice.

7. As for the weekend, tonight I am looking forward to cooking out with the whole fam damily, tomorrow my plans include birthday party for nephew J, and Sunday I want to take a wild guess......ding ding ding, did you say "sleep in" all time favorite thing to do on a Sunday.

Manic Monday-on Tuesday

As an adult, what is your favorite thing about summer: grilling, a chilled white wine, sitting on the deck

What was your favorite thing about summer when you were a kid? running around with my cousins catching fireflies in an old jelly jar at my grandparent's house.

In 2010, it will be the summer of the: monkeys. It is the book I am reading the kids.

Relaxin' and chillaxin' at the pool

It's officially....
Spent the day at the pool
Until the kids were worn out
Made it home in time for quiet time
Munched on dinner outside
Enjoyed their first sleepover with their cousins
Rested in tents in sleeping bags
Ten o'clock when they finally fell asleep
I didn't they they would stay asleep the entire night
Maybe they proved my wrong
Ended up at the coffeeshop for breakfast with the grandparents the next morning

Cute hair bling bling

Cute hair bling bling, originally uploaded by tommiea1.

It's June. We have moved out of our home in Kentucky. I cleaned like how I would want to move into a home. I always think someone will think the same thing and my house will be clean. Thinking back, I don't think that has happened. If I really wanted a therapy session I could root down to the orgins of my need to obsessively clean,....but not now.

We are staying with my in-laws in OH. For the first time in forever, I have left my kids with a baby sitter.

He was my brother in law

does that still count?

Counted in my book? Especially since he wanted to watch some soccer cup much?

but I went to a wine festival with my inlaws and hubby

had so much fun!

came home with whoopie pies

and a cool water fountain

also drank many sips of wine

favorite was one called vino verde
