I got a few degrees of answers. I received answers that I stole makeup (damn spending freeze:)!), I beat someone up who spoke/did something bad to my kids, flat out child abuse (thanks Jodi...to be fair, she did see me hit my children with a flip flop at Wal-Mart on Friday) and the overwhelming answer INCLUDING MY HUSBAND was indecent exposure. What? Indecent exposure...what is that????? ♥

The big kids rode Zack's Zoomers about 100 times...thanks Grandma and Poppy for riding it with them 99 of the 100 times. The Sea Dragon was also a big hit. Good thing Uncle Jimmy was there to keep Kyle from shaking out of his seat, but by the end, he loved it!!!
Isaac, Jimmy and my Dad rode some ride where they got soaked. Allison was beyond sad that she could not ride it too. You had to be 46+ inches and she was only 45. She just kept saying, but I am the oldest. Poor thing, I guess she just needs to eat more!!! I look and the boys are riding shirt less. Classic sight let me tell you:)!
The Ferris Wheel was also a hit...not for the adult women. Not a fan!! We left the "men" in charge AGAIN!!! Aunt Jodi did a great job taking Ashley with Kyle to ride rides her size...thanks Aunt Jodi...Jimmy and I were too busy riding Zack Zoomers again, and again, and again!! Oh yeah, leave it to my mom to swear on a kiddy ride. In her defense, her and I were riding in the same car together...which was meant for a kid to ride in ALONE...we were already giggling...it was the first ride she had been on in 20 years...certain words are going to come out!!! Poor thing, I never let her forget it rest of the day. Towards the end of the day (on ride like 95), Jimmy told the ride attendant to tell the lady "in the front with the little girl to please watch her language, she had gotten reports of some foul mouths". Lucky for my mom, she was sitting with Isaac:)!!!
All in all it was a fantastic day. I was really happy to spend the day with Jimmy and my Dad. I think my Dad might have had one of the best Father's Days spending it with BOYS!!! For the record, we missed Keith, but he was doing his job solving murders...so we have to be proud:)!
I wanted to spend the day enjoying my family, not looking through a camera lens. Of course once I was there, I was sad that I did not have my camera. Thanks to Jodi for taking pictures, forwarding them to me, and letting me post them here.
I hope everyone had a wonderful Father's Day spending their day with some important man/men in their lives...appreciating them for being them.
Daddy with his baby girl!!!
boy cousin love!

On Friday, I went out with my girls and Jimmy had to take care of the kids. Pet peeve #!, Dads babysitting their children!! I can not stand when someone says that. How can a dad babysit his own child/ren?? Do Mom's babysit their children? It makes me very angry!!

Mya tends to get a little red while she drinks, so I thought I would take a before and after picture. Instead of turning red, she just stayed beautiful!
Then the conversation turned to Jennie who asked what the strangest thing in your purse was...I only had my wallet in my purse so I was out of this game. Jennie breaks out the LARGEST paint brush I have ever seen. First, I am not sure why anyone would need such a large paint brush and second, why in the world she was carrying it in her purse. Mandy topped Jennie with butt paste. Maybe they make me feel a little less crazy or maybe they are just as crazy...not really sure!!!
What is the matter Mandy...embarrassed over butt paste or the conversations in general?!?
AND...the lady of the hour...I hope you had a wonderful birthday Theresa!!!

Get ready for the BIG difference...OK maybe only the Mom can see it, but it is there, I promise!!

I have to send a lot of love out to my father in law. Grandma TenBrink passed away last Friday. I don't care how old or young you are, losing your Mom is not something that is easy to do (not that I speak from experience, but the thought brings me INSTANTLY to tears!). He has been handling it like a champ and still was kind enough to come over a mow our lawn for us. Yes, we do not have a lawn mower...just add it to the VERY long list of things we need to get. In the mean time, Jim has been nice enough to mow and it makes me happy when I pull into the driveway and see my lawn looking half way decent versus a hay field. In payment for his kindness...I gave him some love. What could make a sad grandpa happy but some lovin' from the crazies!!!! He again had to be "nicer" and give them rides (and let some little boy drive himself). Thanks Jim for being you and know we all love you!!!
Isn't that picture just filled with love?!?!?
