Good Times Were Had By All

First of all, I would like to apologize for not posting yesterday like I normally do.  I meant to, I really did, but things got crazy.

I had to take my oldest to Urgent Care to have his eye checked out.  It started hurting him on Friday, and then didn't get better through the weekend.  It was swollen, and I thought (hoped) it was just allergies, but it turns out he has a sty.  Nothing major (thank goodness), but it's painful and they put him on some antibiotics.  It should clear up in 7 to 10 days.

That threw my morning off.  But, in reality, the craziness started the night before.  My family and I went to the Demolition Derby on Saturday night.  This was a new experience for the boys and I; we'd never been.  I forgot my phone, which made me aware of how dependent on electronics I am, but I also didn't have a chance to take any pictures. I took a few with my husband's phone, and I had him send them to me, but they never showed up.

We got busy working around the house, and I had a radio interview, so a blog post slipped my mind.  But here it is!

As I said, the boys and I have never been to a demolition derby before, but I had an idea what to expect.  I knew cars drove around and crashed into each other.  When I told the boys this, they were incredibly excited.

"Are they going to blow up too?"

They were a little disappointed when I told them no, but they were still thrilled to see them crash.

We all had a lot of fun.  I honestly wouldn't have thought watching cars crash would be that thrilling, but it was.  Thankfully, no one got hurt, so it made it that much more entertaining.

Happy Father's Day!

To all the wonderful, amazing, loving fathers out there, I hope you have a fantastic day!

To mine, thank you so much for being in my life.  I wouldn't be who I am without you!

We are spending the day hanging out with family and smoking a brisket.  It's going to be delicious, and I can't wait to eat!  The boys got their dad a t-shirt for Father's Day, and he was really excited about it.

How are you spending Father's Day?  What did you get your day?

Camp Grandma and Grandpa

 Since last Wednesday, the boys have been at my parents’ house, and they will be there until next Thursday. We are so lucky to have family that lives close by that the boys can stay with. They always have such an amazing time.

I’m a little jealous I don’t get to hang out with them. They’ve relaxed, gone to the movies, enjoyed the backyard fire pit, and had s’mores. There’s also plans in the works to go to the planetarium and a kid’s museum, as well as visiting the dinosaur museum again. They also get to spend time with their cousin.

Those lucky ducks!

Are you having an exciting vacation this summer?

Say Hello to Our New Little Friend...Siggy

We picked this little sweetie up last Wednesday, and it's been crazy in our house since!  She's the sister of Rolo--she has the same parents, but came from a different litter.
She's so freaking tiny!  She's about three times smaller than Floki, and they're only 5 weeks apart.  They get along pretty well.  Floki tries to play with her and steam rolls her, but she doesn't stand for it.  Siggy gets super angry and snappy.  It's all in good fun, and when she gets bigger, she'll be able to hold her own.

We're all very excited to have the fur babies in our house.  The boys love both of them so much.  Good times are ahead!
