Our Life in Pictures

Our Life in Pictures

Lots of fishing

and days spent at the botanical gardens

and having many outdoor adventures with friends and the Creek Kids Outdoor Playgroup!

Don't worry animal lovers, we don't keep our found critters more than a day at a time...if at all :)

Have you ever taken a turtle for a walk? lol.

Visiting local State Parks. This is Devils Den.

Picnics and trying new things.
A friend of mine made pineapple mint water so I tried it and it was delicious!

Lots of extended family time

Watermelon for supper

Daily nature walks down our country road.
We always discover something new, but our favorite discovery has been.....



to get to fun places like....

Legoland and Sea Life Aquarium in Kansas City, Mo

Silver Dollar City Theme Park in Branson, MO

Gentry Safari and Zoo in Gentry, AR

A Mermaids and Pirates birthday party

Always being thankful my boys get to play like THIS

and never ceasing to be amazed by God's light in our lives

New Pets

Pure and simple a bucket :)

and on a sheet

Creating spontaneous laughter in our home.
sticky back googly eyes.
I place these randomly around the house without telling anyone and it is so awesome to hear L laugh histerically out of the blue and come running to tell me that his "sink has a face!"

Loving my boys!

and kind of getting the hang of this mommy of two thing.
Which by the way has caused me to embrace my naturally curly hair!

and after ALMOST losing the entire 80 lbs I gained during pregancy,
 finally feeling brave enough to turn the camera around.
Oh, and being thankful for the days my husband has off to allow me to get reaquainted with my makeup and hair straightener! Hello old I miss you!

and this pretty much sums up what every end to our days have been.
Running around half naked in the yard till it's time for bed.
Ohhhh I love sweet summertime!
