pajama party

Can you tell they are excited about their new summer pajamas? Brenna picked Dora pj's. No surprise there... she's been asking for purple Dora pajamas for months now. Blake, who at first was a little concerned that they did not have Diego pajamas, was happy to find Mickey riding on a motorcycle. This after bath time picture just makes me smile!

After a fun filled day of pool, picnics and feeding the 'pet' ducks (more on that another day), I am ready to spend a quiet evening at home. Hubby is gone to a softball game and kids are in bed... but not yet asleep or quiet for that matter. They are having a very loud conversation at the moment, across the hallway from eachother and through their closed bedroom doors:

Blake: I want you Mommy!
Brenna: No Blake, Go To BED! (in a very motherly tone)

Good Night All.

Today we met a new friend. Hermie, the caterpillar. Blake made a nice little home for Hermie and had a conversation with him that went something like this. "Hermie, do you like the fresh, crunchy leaves we got for you? Some day, maybe today, you will turn into a beautiful butterfly. Then you will collect nectar. Yep, that will be your job."

Unfortunately, Hermie really hasn't moved for the last couple hours. Yikes.

mother's day

I'm feeling especially blessed to be the mom of these two today. Blake came into our room this morning with a card that he typed himself on the computer. What a great way to start the day! I got a good run in and we headed to church. I told Nolan that one thing I want for Mother's day is simply some time to run and some time to bake. Check and check... got both things accomplished and loved every minute of it. Let's not forget to mention the gift certificate to a local spa I got from my hubby! That will be put to good use very soon! :) Thanks honey!!

My husband with George Brett. THE George Brett!

I'm SO jealous.
