10 Random Fact Friday

1. For mother's day I got all creative and Crafty! Right before our huge family vacation I decided to do this project with a friend. and last minute I called a friend and asked if she could help me. I am so thankful I asked for her help on so many levels. I am NOT CRAFTY or CREATIVE in the least, therefore I have no supplies, she had thought through the process, had supplies and 4 adult hands with 4 painted little boys hands was a good idea!!!

Finished Product drying in the sun! It was a big hit! But now
I set the bar too high :)
2. i wish i could explain to people what a goofy personality Landon has when he's around just his family. This picture sorta portrays that. ;)
 3. Sometimes a family outing to Old Town for Ice Cream is just what the doctor prescribed.
 4. Most of our days are spent outside and they love it. (although I think i say that every post)

 5. Last Saturday we went to a park! It was like 65% humidity which is insane for here! but we still enjoyed a park date with Daddy

 6. Richard is  a really good father!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! and his boys adore him!!!
 7. This was taken Monday evening after our big memorial day shindigs.  He never falls alseep in his carseat around town - but this day he was wiped out!!!!
 8. We went to the pool for the first time this summer and it went great! Boys loved it! and I had a great time with my friend

9. I wish there was a way to be completely honest about our lives and people would get the right idea and not just read into things. Lately I've gotten from a few people two different sides. Either they think my life and family are amazing and they are jealous - or when I write about struggles I'm told I'm too negative. Weird! I guess that's why I write for me and my family and my outlet! :) to everyone - know that my life is normal, not glamorous, hard at times, and great at times. That's life - probably just like yours :) (btw - some friends have been so encouraging about my blog too, so it's all good!!!)

10. I'm so glad the month of May is overwith. That took so long! WE did a lot in this month and our bank account shows it! :) June - here we come!!!!

I loved catching up on you guys today. I still can't believe anyone would judge you for what you write. I enjoy you sharing your heart - and no judgement here! And, those towels are a great idea for the grandmothers for another occasion - instead of just the great grandmothers!:-) I am in total agreement - on with June - May was a long month and I can't wait until July gets here!!!! LOVE YOU - - -

I agree with your Mom's comment.

I also ADORE Landon's face in the first picture. He is COMPLETELY puzzled as to why/what you are doing...ROFL!!! I love that!! I can tell he's just super silly...can't wait for the day I get to meet him and giggle with you about him!!! (And you can also tell Carson was in his glory getting paint on his hands...did he love it??)

You are such a good Mom...letting them do things and play and be silly. I know it's hard for you to let them sometimes...but the fact that you let them anyway is awesome.

Sorry to hear ppl think you are either "GLAMOROUS" or "ANGRY"...too bad for them...they clearly don't have the PRIVILEGE of knowing the real you...which is wonderful, btw...both the good and not-so-good sides of you. xoxox

GREAT POST!!! Good catching up. I would totally agree with Mum. I love your heart and reading about it. I think you have to forget about the negative feed back cuz I think you have a GREAT balance of telling what happens in your life, the good and the struggles. You are an amazing Mom. I miss you so much already!! Love ya!!
