Dinner-time Fun

Loving that summer is arriving...

And along with that comes summer fruit...

And canteloupe makes excellent beaver teeth. :)

Here's to hoping your family gets a little crazy at the dinner table like mine.

A Visit From A Favorite Uncle...

Question: What's more fun than playing "Angry Birds" on mom's phone?

Answer: Getting to play "Angry Birds" with Uncle Jamie.

My "little" brother came for a visit...and man, do I love it when this happens. I gotta admit...he's one of my very favorite people on the whole planet.

He's one of the easiest people to hang with...not to mention my kids all adore him.

Lily could barely get enough of him...when Jamie starts playing with her, she gets this infectious laugh that pulls you in until you are laughing and smiling right along with her.

Case in point.

Blurry, but you get the idea.

He doesn't even have to do anything...just being around him makes this girl light up.

I'm pretty sure that if we told her that Jamie would live in our house 24/7, she would faint from happiness.

The kids weren't the only ones who loved having this guy around.

Like I said, I kinda like my kid-brother. Especially when he goes on a 2 mile run with me, takes me out for supper, and then a movie.

We can't wait til he comes again! We miss him already.

Chef Assistants

Anyone who knows me, knows I love to cook.

And sharing that love with these two girls?

Makes it even more special to me.

Milwaukee Weekend

We went to Milwaukee to visit my sister, Zyra, and my neice, Aaliyah this past weekend. My parents and brother, Jamie, went with too.

We got adjoining rooms at a hotel and had an absolute blast spending time together. I'm a big family spending a whole weekend with my family...well, let's just say that I was in my element. And adjoining just doesn't get any better than that.

On Saturday, we went to Discovery World. The kids got to touch all sorts of stuff...including some stingrays. Ella is still talking about it.

This movie is a little something Jamie put together. I love it....might have to enlist him to make some more of my kids!
