Random 5 on Friday ~ June 28th

Ok I know I probably say this at the end of every month.....BUT.....is it really the end of June already! Time really does fly when you are having fun! ;)

So let's get going with my Random 5.

1. We went swimming for the first time this summer! Love, Love, Love!

Yes, Taylor was with us but when she is in the water so are both adults. Well, most of the time.

2. My daughter captures beautiful pictures.


3. I got a Twitter account. I never thought I would but I did it. Care to follow me? Pretty Please!

4. We have a super big weekend ahead of us. Seriously from tomorrow morning until Sunday evening we are on a go..go..go schedule. You would think that would be overwhelming but I am pretty excited about it!

5. I am really stinking at this whole schooling through the summer thing. I had really great intentions but lets be honest, Summer is just so much fun!

A Sunday to Remember

Brian was given tickets to the Indians game. Not just any old tickets either...these were Club House tickets. Ummm, yeah. Fun was an understatement! Comfy seats, great view and all the food you could eat.....for free.


The kids had never been to a professional game before. They were all smiles and a bit talkative. I'm not going to lie, I was kind of the same way.




Between each inning they came around and gave away hats, shirts and baseballs. Morgan wasn't shy to try and get their attention! When the kids and I went to get a drink, Brian hollered and they gave Taylor a free hat!




We had so much fun! The kids will be talking about this day for a REALLY long time. On our way home, I heard them saying that this has been the "coolest summer ever"...... Between camping, fishing, gardening, swimming and today, I think I agree. The coolest summer EVER!

After we left the game, we drove through the ghetto to find a spot to get up to Lake Erie. Saying Brian hates driving in big cities is an understatement. Fun, Fun.

We couldn't miss it though because we were so close. When the kids were younger we went to Cleveland quite a bit for Taylors doctors but that has been so long ago that the kids forget what it looked like. Sooooo.....after some bad directions and a few scary neighborhoods we finally found a good spot.








It was a good day. :)

Random 5 ~ June 21st

We have a busy weekend ahead. I'm a bit excited to take a whole lot of pictures and then share our memories here. I'm silly like that.

Let's just jump right into Random 5 this week.

1. I have been up since 5 and although I LOVE early mornings...I AM BEAT!

2. I finally have everything planted in my 3 (yes, 3) gardens. I did not even have any failures this week. Are you proud of me? I'm proud. We are growing lettuce, corn, beets, peppers, cantaloupe, watermelon, carrots, tomatoes, peppers and potatoes! WooHoo!

3. A fact...I would much rather hurt than see or hear of others hurting.

4. I hate doing dishes.

5. We do not have a pool but my kids make do. Wanna know how?

Who needs a pool when you have plastic tubs?!

Random 5 on Friday ~ June 14th

Well it has been a heck of week around here. Let me tell you all about it.

1. Brian had to replace the brakes on our van. It took a whole lot longer than we anticipated so we missed church on Sunday. We did have a little date running to Auto Zone (alone,twice!!) and eating a little Hardee's. Hey, you get the time in where you can.

2. We went fishing. Had a blast and caught a lot of fish! That is always a bonus.









She doesn't fish. She eats. Lots.




3. After we got home, I was teasing Brian and smacked in him on the rear end. Him, never letting me get the better of him, ran after me. Tried to smack my rear and missed. Hit my back and messed me all up! I have no idea why or how but I was in extreme pain and down for 2 days!

4. I hate being sick or hurt or anything of the sort! It drives me insane. These 2 days felt like an eternity! Brian took off work to take over. I am beyond blessed to have a husband and kids that can run the show if I can not but lets pray that they do not have to for a VERY long time. 

I am much better now. Every once in a while my back pinches when I do something but I am pretending to not notice it. Think that will make it go away? ;)

5. Sometimes when I read something, I just skim it. This includes movies and directions. That can get me in trouble!

Well it got me in trouble when I was skimming articles about mulching my garden. I must have skipped over the part that says to put newspaper down FIRST if you use straw. Oops. So instead of keeping the weeds under control, it quadrupled them! I now have wheat/grass (not sure exactly) growing in my garden. IT IS NOT A PRETTY SIGHT!

I just keep telling myself that with all this trial and error, I should come out at the end an amazing gardener! Right? I mean I will at least know what NOT to do. :)

Have a GREAT weekend!

Random 5 ~ June 7th

It's that time of year again. Busy, busy, busy.

Is it busy in your neck of the woods?


Here is my Random 5 for the week.

  1. I am ready for some hot weather! Its been warm and then cool and then warmer and then cool. I'm ready for hot and sticky! Playing in the sprinkler and swimming weather. :)

2. If you remember I had to re-do my garden. Well I am happy to announce that it is doing wonderful! I ended up buying tomatoes and peppers plants. I had a few tomatoes yet from seed that I had not planted in the ground and were still in the sunroom. So those went in too. I'm just kind of excited about it.

3. I have yet to put in corn, watermelon, cantaloupe or pumpkins. Must. Do. This. Weekend!

4. I love ice cream and just in case you didn't know tomorrow is the first day in history that ice cream was sold to the public! How neat? We will be making homemade ice cream to celebrate. Or maybe just to give me an excuse to eat it. Either way, tomorrow will be fun! What is your favorite? I LOVE vanilla with banana or a vanilla cone dipped in chocolate. YUM!

5. In the midst of our gardening, I got an idea! Make Taylor a garden table! Why didn't I think of that sooner. I try to always include Taylor is everything we do but for some reason the garden thing just kind of slipped my mind. I mean I tried to talk to her about MY garden and get her input on some ideas but every child should grow their OWN plants.

So that is what we did. We found an old table. I bought a few flowers pots at the dollar store, grabbed some flowers from Walmart and brought out my collection of seeds. And ta-da....Miss Taylor has a garden.

She planted cucumbers, lettuce and plenty of flowers, both from seed and already bloomed.

She is very proud and excited! I just wish I would have thought about it sooner! Live and learn.


**I have used SimplyLinked in the past and for some reason their site is down. It will not let me in and all link ups from before are not showing up. I apologize if I didn't make it to your post last week to comment. I planned on doing it right now but its kinda difficult if the links are gone! Hopefully it gets fixed soon.**
