Yes we were on vacation last week. This is how our week went.

Monday-I worked

Tuesday--Doctors appointments

Wednesday--Boys have to have blood test done and then Payton, Cousin Jacob and I meet Kasey, Kolten and Kadence at the pool. We had a blast.

Thursday--We went to the Indianapolis Zoo and it was our first time we took a trip as a family. Our favorite animals were the penguins and the giraffees.

Friday was a relaxing day.

Saturday we had a play group at our house. The boys had a blast.

Sunday we did laundry.

Now I need a vacation from my vacation.

I will type more about the doctor visit. It was interesting.

Fun days of Summer

Well we have had fun this summer and Payton's summer vacation is just about to start. Today is his last day of summer school. I have updated a couple of the pictures of the boys. Hope you enjoy. We played in the sprinkler and had to get out their "VROOM" that is what Payton calls his power wheel. He decided to take his brother for a ride.

Hello everyone. Well what a great weekend we had. We got housework done and had time to play. This is Payton's last week of summer school. Braxton only walks now and is starting to pick up speed. IT is wonderful. I have pictures to post but just haven't found a moment to get them on here. I just got a great deal on a digital camara for $35 and it is better than our Sony that we bought over 3 years ago. I am a bargain shopper. We are all doing great.

Update on everyone!

Well once you read this post you will know why I haven't posted in a while.

Great-Grandpa passed on June 29th. We went up to Wisconsin on Monday afternoon and was in Wisconsin until July 5th. It was great to see everyone but we had hoped not under these circumstances. We miss you Grandpa.

After we got home you know we had to do the normal get back into the routine and I think we finally have. Poor Braxton is the one to suffer since he goes from sleeping in his crib to a play pen. I know it is not comfortable.

Yesterday morning we woke up around 3:30 am and it was storming and Payton came into our bed because he was scared. He came in our room and I said are you scared and he said yes and then I told him to get in between his dad and I and he did. He has a special pillow that he uses when he is in our bed and all he kept saying was Thanks Mom. Well just about that time the power went out. I called the power company at 3:50 am and we didn't get power back on until 11:30. So of course I didn't sleep that well because I was scared to over sleep.

Well it is Tuesday and it looks like there is going to be storms again today. Hopefully this will be a relaxing week for us.

Where did it all begin.....

This is a blog about the lives of a non-traditional midwestern family. I am a full time working mother of two beautiful boys and a wife to a stay at home husband. We were married on June 15, 2002 and were blessed with two boys, Payton (4-19-05) and Braxton (2-08-07).
