More of the past month...

2011-05-08_18-30-50_588

I'm not sure where to begin - I have a bunch of random stuff to tell you. First, I love this program Bountiful Baskets. I've told you about it before. This is our last basket, not the most current.

2011-04-30_09-50-49_815

The kids love going to get the stuff and then we always find things to do with the stuff. I try to use all of it.

2011-04-30_11-49-19_44

We found out Peanut likes to make ants on a log...and she likes to eat them too!

2011-04-30_11-49-07_503

We've been busy doing lots of things swimming, gymnastics...school!

2011-04-29_15-07-35_302

Peanut loves to do school...especially when it involves art projects!

2011-04-29_15-07-53_214

We went to the Baskin Robins 31 cent scoop night...the kids got to climb into the firetruck and they loved it.

2011-04-27_19-11-06_46

I asked them if they wanted to be fire-girls when they grow up...they said no. Doesn't mean they didn't like climbing in the truck though! The best part, icecream!

2011-04-27_19-00-23_165

And, face painting, or arm painting as the kids prefer!

2011-04-27_19-00-18_502

Achoo found a liking for frosting...

2011-04-18_13-34-42_675

Peanut learned about fun dip.

2011-04-17_15-28-05_649

Achoo tried homemade oatmeal cookies...and didn't care for them...

2011-05-12_15-43-32_249

He preferred to crumble them into a million little pieces...

2011-05-12_15-45-47_241

Or, chew it up and then spit it out (that's what is on his face).

This is the pre-spitting it out photo for your enjoyment...

2011-05-12_15-45-33_817

We also got our San Antonio magazine...one of the things in it

2011-04-27_17-40-01_928

I have been joking that I'll take our parents there when they come...I think my Mom actually might want to go...not to ride it but to see someone else ride it perhaps.

Daddy went out of town and we moved the bounce house into the living room...

2011-05-02_11-30-14_148

It's hot, cold, rainy...whatever the kids needed an outlet. The good news I can easily clean it up so Vegas doesn't have to be reminded of it and pull it out again later. I will admit it kind of looks like a big mess when its deflated.

2011-05-02_14-19-47_372

All the kids love it...and uh, can you see they bring toys into it? That adds to the mess...OY!

2011-05-03_07-59-27_647

We made chocolate scones for breakfast one day...I can't help but think of when we went to Dallas to stay at my cousins and she tried to make scones for us but the dogs ate them during the night while they were rising. These don't need to rise...gotta love Costco.

We found the park on base...

2011-05-04_18-11-19_801

With the REALLY big slide.

Love this kid.

2011-05-04_18-04-39_546

Here she is talking to Nonie on Mother's Day...

2011-05-08_08-24-06_141

Her teenage years will be interesting!

Love this boy...

2011-05-07_16-57-56_791

We went out to dinner for Mother's Day on the day before...it was fun.

2011-05-07_16-58-03_288

The place had a little play area and live music at night...

2011-05-07_16-57-28_436

Love this girl too....

2011-05-07_16-57-36_505

Because how can you not love all three?!

I ended up putting up the bounce house again, but I turned it so the slide doesn't go into the wall..

2011-05-05_17-46-13_320

The girls gave me a pedicure...um, lovely...

2011-05-06_15-39-37_579

We picked our first zucchini from the garden...HUGE!

2011-05-08_10-56-01_16

2011-05-08_18-31-35_809

So, when they aren't outside...they are inside...and life is so busy!

2011-05-11_11-36-44_172

OK...I think that's quite a bit. I just looked at the clock realized its 11pm on Saturday night. I came on here to search for curtains and got carried away blogging! I need to catch some z's. I hope you enjoyed the what you've missed this past month...trust me, there is more. I'm hoping to catch up and then have an easier time keeping up with the blog but let's be honest...its not as easy as one would like because when three kids are napping instead of blogging I NAP (or shower, eat, pee LOL)!

Edit to add...the kids also have found a love of homemade pizza...

2011-05-12_11-54-47_109

2011-05-12_11-54-38_390

Can you tell what their favorite ingredient in pizza is? The mac and cheese!!

Ok, really more later now!
