Catching up

For whatever reason I have been horrible at keeping up with my blogging lately.  I imagine it has something to do with the warm weather.  We spend much our time outside these days.  

At any rate, there is lots to catch up on!!

Collin and Daddy had a fantab time fishing on Tues.  They weren't too far from placing but were a tad bit off of the mark when it came to total weight of fish caught.  There is always next week and the pictures prove that the time together was worth more than any grand cash prize...

The fun didn't stop on Tuesday!

Nope, bring on Wednesday!
Daddy took both kiddos to Greenfield Vill@ge while mommy was at work.  First trip of the season!  I was sad to miss out but it's sweet that daddy takes initiative to do those things with two littles in tow.  :)

 All aboard!

 The "caroself"
 Big ole giant sugar sticks.

Last night we met up with Uncle Michael, Aunt Andi and sweet cousin Claire for a divine dinner at Grammy and Papa's.  Food was amaze!  
Look at this sugar!
 Mads is so in love!

This morning's fun started early with a birthday part for one of Collin's besties from school.
 Next stop, Relay for Life!
The kids spent most of their time in the bounce house.
Side story...
When Collin was about 2 we were at a church event and he was bouncing gleefully in the bounce house when the power cut off somehow and it quickly began to deflate with Collin inside of it.  Rather terrifying for a little person and his momma.
He wouldn't go near them for a loooooong time.
He did finally conquer his fear but has never forgotten the dramatic event.  He always asks "is it going to fall?".  I always assure him that "it won't fall don't worry" because I mean seriously that had to be a totally random event, yes?!
Apparently NO.
Today while Madelyn gleefully jumped the gas ran out of the generator and down came the bounce house with Mads inside.
Sweet mercy you have to be kidding.
Collin was thankfully not inside at the time but I thought surely this will do him in, never again with he trust the bounce house.
Madelyn was first in line to get back in once the tank was refilled.
No surprise there.
Collin was right after her.  
Shocker people, seriously!
Needless to say we bring down the house, the bounce house that is.

Cooling off with a delish fruit smoothie.

 Grammy made a luminary bag for Grandpa B.
I will love him forever.
I miss him something fierce.
Mom held the bag so I could take a picture.
I was happy to hide behind my sunglasses as my eyes were wet with tears for the great ECB...

A heart for Grandma and Grandpa, four more to represent their four children and then one for each grandchild.
Mom did go back and add three more for the great grands.  :)

Now the sun is beginning to fall.
The kids are tucked safely in bed.
This momma is going to snuggle up on the couch and enjoy some mindless television!

Bring on summer!

PS if you made it alllll the way to the end of this post God bless your heart.
And if there are lots of errors, please forgive but it's too long for me to edit.  :)
