Holy moly! I can’t believe how long it has been since I posted!! Sheesh!
Summer here has been full of lazy days. We have been lounging around, playing video games, watching movies, playing card games and even some reading here and there.
But we have done some stuff in the last couple weeks!
I took the boys fishing, they had a blast!! I had to put the worms on the hook… it was disgusting. The boys all caught a TON of fish, and I had worm guts everywhere. Nasty!
On our very first run Gavin and I found a teeny tiny kitty. She was stuck at the top of lavender bush. She was meowing like crazy at us, so I lifted up my arms and told her “Well, come on then!” And she DID! She just jumped right into my arms. She couldn’t have been more than 7 weeks old. We carried her home and have fattened her up some, although she’s still pretty scrawny. We named her Precious. She snuggles up with Gavin, sleeps right on his pillow! I swear he is like the Cat Whiperer. Cats just LOVE him. Sadly we can’t keep Precious… Dexter (the new puppy) thinks she’s a toy we got just for him, and we already have 3 cats! But… she is just so darn sweet. I wish we could keep her.
In other news…. I FINALLY tried the new Dorito Taco from Taco Bell!!!! MMmmmmmm, I’ve been craving more ever since!! Oh, they are so good. In fact, I’m having this for lunch tomorrow!! We have to drive like 40 miles just to get to the nearest Taco Bell, and it’s in a truck stop. But whatever, they are totally worth it. And don’t you dare tell me how many calories these have. Don’t you dare!!
I also got to go to Reno and hang out with my Bloggy Bestie!!! We had a blast!!! Kim (from Pretty Pink Momma) and her husband had to go to California and then they drove the 3 hours over to Reno just to hang out with us for a day. How awesome is that? We ate tons of food, gambled a little, did some shopping (At the mall!! With NO kids!! Whooo hooo!!), and laughed and laughed. I seriously needed some grown up time, I wish we could have had a longer visit! Next time we need to hit the spa!
And – Our family welcomed a little girl into the world!! My brother in law and his girlfriend had a precious little girl. She is just adorable. Seth was the only one of my boys who would hold her! Can’t believe the others were afraid of such a tiny baby! Haha! She is the first girl on my husbands side. There are TEN grandsons. Yes, 10! I think this little girl will be equally spoiled and tough! With all those boys… she’ll toughen up quick!
We have some camping trips coming up, a day trip to a local cave and crafts projects I want to do with the kids, plus I promised them a trip to the water park in Reno! We’ve definitely got some fun stuff planned for the summer.
What have you guys been doing? Anything fun? Do you have some fun craft ideas for me? Sometimes it’s too hot to go out, you know?
