Short Update

Hey it's me, World's worst blogger! How ya doing? We have been spending ever minute trying to soak up the sun and enjoy the last little bit of summer before the rain sets in. Since I live in Western Washington, the rain is guaranteed to happen here real quick. Anyways, I still don't have time for a full on update, but since I did get a new phone(Score!) I have taken a few pictures in the last couple of days. I only got the phone a week ago, so this is all I have!

I am still working only 3 days a week, so I have gotten to spend lots of time snuggling with this guy. Yes he still has a milk bottle... don't judge! haha

We have spend lots of time sitting in the car watching daddy work. 

Rubber boots and a diaper is how we roll. Disclaimer: Please ignore the background on these pictures, my dad has a slight wood hoarding problem. Yep, that's right he collects wood, you know pallet boards, plywood, mill ends, pretty much any wood that is free. Hopefully my mom doesn't see these pictures, because she would kill me for posting them for the world to see. Just keeping it real!

Hayes has been learning how to throw and catch
Hayes and grandpa eat lots of  blackberries, and he requires a bath daily because he is usually head to toe, in dirt blackberries and sweat. Yep my almost 2 year old is a sweaty monster, like running down his forehead into his eyes sweaty. It must be a boy thing.
Most nights I have to drag the boys kicking and screaming from my parents house. Yep that's right I said boys. Remember almost a year ago how I told you I had a secret, well there he us. I can finally talk about him, Chris was awarded custody of his son Shawn on September 5th. He has been living with us since last October, but it has been a battle, so I haven't wanted to talk about it until it was final.
And that pretty much sums up Shawn's attitude.
And that's how Hayes feels about me taking pictures! ha

Hope you all are doing well, and I can get some more blogging done here soon!!

Hi, I just came by to say thank you for following my blog. I enjoy sharing ideas from my many different interests and I enjoy making new blogging friends.

Don't worry about the bottle, he'll reach a place where he doesn't want it anymore. Children are so much love. I've just returned from visiting my daughter and our two granddaughters. They grow so fast.

Does your Dad re-purpose his collection into cool items? I love before and after re-purposing photos. Have you checked out any of those re-purposes pallet sites?

Have a lovely day, and thanks so much for following my blog.
Your new blogging sister, Connie :)

Oh my gosh, the diaper with the rubber boots is priceless!

I've been a terrible blogger lately, too. The summer is just hard I think. But good for you for taking photos, I couldn't even manage that!

I am always forgetting to take pictures, I am usually so in the moment and I remember too late.
That's great that you guys won custody of Shawn (:
