A good summer day

So I have been trying to figure out what I can do with my kids that wont break us.  Well I have been looking at all different types of summer day camps and they are all $200 being the cheapest one and over meaning like over $300 and that is per a kid for 1 week so I would have to rob a bank if we wanted to consider that. Well I think I would rather be with my kids then in jail. Joseph has been going crazy since last Friday with nothing to do. We have about 100 girls on our street and 1 boy that cant play very often so he is going crazy with nothing to do. Well today was a Good day I tried to come up with stuff to do and I did,  first they played in the water, then I took them to the library which I love because it is so pretty outside of the building.
Then I took them for ice cream

They played outside for awhile then I had 8 kids in my little kitchen making what they called moody faces. I got the idea at

Then to end the day we made Monkey bread which we love but I don't make it to often because there is so much sugar in it but man is it good.

Shutter Love Tuesday

Well it is shutter love Tuesday at  and it is on fathers love. You should go over there and check out her blog she is always posting something neat. Anyways I am gonna post a picture of Kevin and Joe. These two are so much alike it is crazy.


Fathers Day

I know I am a little late but I wanted to wish all the good fathers out there a happy fathers day. I really want to let my hubby know how grateful I am for all he does for our kids and I. He works his ass off everyday, working 60-70 hour weeks. Yes it leaves very little time for us to spend with him but he does try and make an effort to spend time with us even when he is tired. Last night at 10:00 my kids wanted to sleep in a tent so he got out of bed and went down stairs to put it up for them even though he had to be to work early. It is the little things that make me love him so much.

Last Day of school

 Today was the last day of school for my kids. So I decided to take a picture for myself to compare how much they may have changed over the school year.

When my kids got home today Alyssa was crying because she was sad it was summer and my boys were happy about summer. We also got a Christmas card from Joe he had made us and forgot to give us. He was not looking forward to school at all last weekend because his desk was such a mess, well I guess one good thing came out of it we got a Christmas card, better late then never I always say.

Bonneville Dam

Today was hot and I wanted to go some where cooler and my hubby was actually off which is a miracle. So we got in the car not knowing where we were going and some how ended up at the Bonneville Dam. It is a really neat place and my kids really enjoyed it which  I was surprised about and they knew a lot about the stuff there which I was really proud of because I didn't even know about that stuff. Then when we were done we went to Red Robin for Breakfast-Lunch-Dinner "yes I know I am horrible I starved my kids today but they were very good starved kids I have to say", then they are having a huge sale at bath and body works so I had to go there, and in the same parking lot was Ikea so I made my husband go with me. It was a sad moment for Alyssa because she is finally to tall to go to the kids area and she was stuck shopping with us which Kev liked because he had some to complain with and hated being there as much as he did. So  I had a really good day and knowing my kids only have 4 days left of school makes it that much better.

My Baby Emma

You can head over to to see other cute pets but just so you know they are not as cute as mine, and if you want you can even post a photo of your pet there also.

This is my baby Emma. Where ever I go she is right behind me. I was not a animal person at all, then one day my husband decided to get her and I have to say I was not looking forward to it all, but now she is my baby. My husband says I spoil her but I say she is my baby and need lots of toys and treats.
