We Made it!!!!!..........

We made it.......all the way ...........to ..........HAYS........50 miles!........without........you guessed it.........having to stop for POTTY!!!:):)  Of course this could have contributed......

 We ate some comfort food...Chinese at the mall.
 1st thing on my list Monday Morning is to make an eye doctor apt. for Iley!  Everything she does is about this close.  She's facinated with Thatchers glasses.  She puts them on and looks all around.????  When she's looking at the Ipad she always tips her head down and looks out of the top of her eyes??  Anyone have any insight here?
 This child is SO Messy when she eats!!!  Oh my word!  She had food all the way down the front of her.  We left a pile of rice on the floor when we left.  I felt like we should leave a tip just for having to clean up after us.
 Look at the grease and the piece of rice hanging off her hand.....and the leftovers on her face.
One hand with the fork is never fast enough........she has to help it in with the other hand.
 Too far away from the table.....lets get it up here where we can shovel.
She will not eat carbs unless they come in the form of rice or noodles......or a bite of "our" sandwich.  We ordered fried wantons by mistake......meant to get crab ragoons.....she would hand them to me to crack open, then slurp the wanton out...leaving a pile of the fried stuff on the table.  She would eat 4 hot dogs plain if we'd let her, and probably 10 little smokies......and yes grandma.......I said "IF" we'd let her!.....we don't.

Harrison and Sherman look so sunburnt and tired in these pictures.  They'd been swimming all day, and spent the night with a friend.


 Wren is forever SMOOCHING someone!  You have to be really good at dodging to avoid these.  But if you do....she takes it personal....so we mostly let her smooch.  Sometimes we do have to say ok...that's enough.  Especially when you are trying to carry on a conversation with someone....makes it a little difficult to make eye contact.



Here's Iley.....close up to her subject as usual...now notice her left hand.....picking.......
 Gotta get a better angle.......
 a little closer........never losing sight of her ipad........
 I think I better get a good look........
 See MOM!!!....it is a pretty crusty little foot!
HEY what's wrong with this thing.........
 ???????????..........she had run the batteries out:)
I used to have a pretty arrangement on this table........long ago in the days of ore.......Now it is a perfect height for all manner of play.  Wren brought all these waffle barn pieces down from upstairs, but couldn't quite get them together..... except flat.......
 Then she swept them???

 Here....let me help.......
 Now the doll is serving up some food.

She loves her big brothers!........and their phones!

Iley was intent on her cooking, and bagging and arranging everything in little bowls.



 LOVE that little lip sticking out:) she was peacefully minding her own business....just playing...........
 When BANG........Ash smacked the table!..........She loves noise!  She cackled away:)
Well as you know......we never stay with one activity for too long.....sooo ...moving on to the pool.....These two froze out, and perched on Ash....who hadn't yet been persuaded to get in........yet.......
 He's signing Ouch.....or Hurt.........
 checking it out......careful....it's serious........
 oooooohhhh.......
 Wren is carefully positioning Iley's knee for the picture!LOL

 I love this picture:)
Wren swims with all swimmers.....until she is a shivering goosebumped icicle.
 Do I really want to do this???
Come here.....Thatch will hold you.....
 OUCH!!!!!!!!!  While he's got his hands up.......... unawares....Wren sneaks up underneath and grabs his side....she needs her fingernails trimmed I guess???? hee hee Sorry!!!
 AHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!  This is a typical screech first...talk later example!......  Use your words please!
 She talked big sis into jumping with her.........she is rather persistent..and being a cute little cricket don't hurt your pursuasive powers.
