Busy Day

Wow we had a busy day! I took the kids to a playdate at a local park with some other moms from church. I will post some pics of my kiddos later. We came home and the “boys” took a nap. I think Caroline is getting away from napping. It is such a struggle with her. Anyway, I tried to get housework done. Grant woke up and so I didn’t get as much done as I wanted. We decided to roast marshmallows this evening. We have been wanting to do it and it hasn’t worked out, so we decided to go for it. The kids were already wound up and not going to sleep anytime soon. The house was still a wreck and we could at least avoid looking at it if we were outside :) Anyway, the kids had fun and Caroline even said “Thanks Dad, for makin this fire”. Tomorrow is another day and the last day to get stuff ready for Delaware……better get an early start cause there is lots left to do!!





Yes, she is topless as usual. We are lucky if we can get her to wear clothes period!To be honest, until I just posted this picture I never even thought about it. She takes her clothes off so often it is not unusual to see her like this :)


The Multitasker had to sweep while we were out there too!


Look, 5 at a time….that’s my girl getting as much sugar as possible!


Fun night, but I am BEAT! I am heading to bed and praying for a super productive day tomorrow!

Kmart Super Doubles

Kmart had their super double coupon sale this week. They double all coupons up to $2. I didn’t get there early enough to get any of the “free” stuff. Some of it I wouldn’t have used anyway. I did buy a lot of stuff we needed for pretty cheap. I saved like $80. I got cat litter, 2 boxes of garbage bags, 2 packs of diapers, 2 big cans of coffee, 12 BOXES OF CEREAL!!!, 3 packs of dog treats, 3 cans of skintimate shave gel, a bouce bar, 8 rolls of paper towels and tinkerbell toothpaste for $84. Not too bad really. We (well Mark) eat a LOT of cereal so it was good to stock up. I paid less than $2 per box for the cereal. I forgot my $5 off $50 coupon and I got the wrong kind of coffee or it would have been a little less.


I went back last night and got 3 more packs of diapers, kiwi shoe polish, some Knorr rice side dishes (3 for less than $1), 5 more shave gels (2 for Mark), 10 pack of razors for 0.79, 2 Glade scented oil refills and 1 warmer (free), 3 gel refills, Kids’ detnagler,pup-eroni dog treats for $40. I saved $40 too!

I also got Cottonelle TP 20 rolls @ CVS for $3.00 using some ECB’s and a coupon and got $3.00 ECB’s back. I still have $10 ECB’s left too even after the ones I used so that’s $13 left…..not too bad!

Pappy Eddy’s Pool

We recently took a quick weekend trip to Delaware. Mom was going for a wedding so we went with her. It was a fast trip but we enjoyed seeing everyone! We spent Sunday afternoon at my Dad’s house in his pool. The kids LOVED swimming! We had an awesome meal too. My Dad is an amazing cook. We had ribs, corn on the cob, tomato salad and the most delicious small potatoes roasted with olive oil salt and pepper. I don’t know exactly what kind of potatoes they were but they were GOOD! I don’t know how many I ate. I should have taken a picture of the food but….I forgot :(



Pappy Eddy and his name sake Baby Grant (my Dad’s middle name is Grant).



Grayson wasn’t too sure about the pool at first but he warmed up. He did like hanging on to the wall and kicking his feet.


IMGP2843Grant LOVED the water! We can’t wait to go back in a week or so!

Indianapolis Children's Museum

We visited the Indianapolis Children's Museum in June. We had a lot of fun. There was lots to do and play with for the kids. We ended up not getting there until almost 1 and didn't have time to see everything so we will have to go back...darn :)

Father’s Day and Grant’s Dedication

I come up with such creative titles…ha! Since I am attempting to catch up on pictures I am posting Grant’s dedication pictures finally. He was dedicated on Father’s Day. We went to Young’s Jersey Dairy to eat lunch and then went to the Beach Waterpark. It was a busy but fun day. Mom and Janet went with us. We didn’t get very good pictures of the dedication because we ended up on the opposite end of the stage :( 




Dayton Air Show

For Mom’s Birthday back in July we went to the Dayton Airshow. We had never been before. It was a lot of fun. The only bad part was that the kids were ready for a nap by the time we got there! They did pretty good considering. We found the kids area and it was great. They had lots of things for them to play with and crafts for them to make. We could see the airshow from the edge of the kids’tent. We stayed there for most of the time and waited to see the Thunderbirds……they were AWESOME!






Grayson loved the dry erase easel!!IMGP2612



Time for the Thunderbirds!!!!IMGP2646





Grayson finally passed out on the LONG walk back to the car!!IMGP2792
