Why, Hello

I keep thinking I'll have some time to sit down and load pictures and write, but it obviously hasn't happened yet.

Over the last few weeks we have been camping in New Mexico, painted the kitchen and entry, started school (you see, we've had a big break during our time to wrap things up in the school dept.), and I started selling Mary Kay (which I'm really enjoying)!

We are planning a Fourth of July party (yay)! I have also been on a frugal shopping and organizing kick. I mean, I got 4 pair of hiking, snow, and rain boots for my boys for $1 a piece! I also picked up plates and cutlery for our party at .50 a pack,  and I even found a favorite pair of shoes on clearance for $10 and I did NOT even get them because I didn't want to spend that much haha. What is going on with me?!

I will post pictures of our kitchen as soon as we hang the curtains. I can't wait for you to see it!

I've also been trying to go on evening walks as much as possible. I don't think I'll ever tire of this neighborhood and looking at these houses. I could walk for hours if my boys didn't get so tired...or wet their pants...a story for another time hahaha!

I will post pictures of my decor and organizing hopefully this next week! Look what i found:

I really want to make looks SO good, especially on the 100+ degree days!

Weekend in OKC

We spent Memorial Day weekend together in Oklahoma City. We booked a kid friendly hotel with a fabulous pool right off of Bricktown. We spent our days swimming and the evenings walking Bricktown in search of a place to eat dinner. We had wonderful meals at The Cheesecake Factory, Fuzzy's Taco Shop, Crabtown, Panera Bread, and lunch at the zoo.

We spent a beautiful and hot Sunday morning at the zoo. The bears, giraffes, hippos, and monkeys were all so much fun to see, and the tigers were DARLING. They were full of energy as they wrestled and played in the water as their momma watched under a shade tree. The dad was here one minute, and gone the next. All of a sudden we saw him creeping low and watching. Watching the momma. He waited and finally..POUNCE! She jumped and he gave her a playful and loving rub with his head against hers the way cats do to someone they really love.

Really, one of the sweetest moments I've ever seen.

Another wonderful moment that captivated the boys..well all of us really, is about the only moment I got any pictures of the whole time because, you guessed it, my camera battery died. Again.

We went in to visit the most beautiful birds from Australia. They were just walking around all over the place. You could also feed them. Someone gave us their leftovers, so we got to spend time feeding these gorgeous birds!

Helping Jaiden feed them:


This was Tristin's favorite moment of the day:

I just stand amazed at God's attention to detail and creativity! Glory to God!
