My little boy is getting TOO big!!

Here is my little boy mowing the lawn with my Mother's Day present from my hubby! Now some of you might think, "Oh, man, what kind of a husband buys his wife a lawn mower for Mother's Day"! But let me assure you that it was all good for this reason! I use to to be the only one in the family that seemed to know how to mow the lawn and it took 2 1/2 hours. The lawn mower was about 15 years old or maybe even older. But since Mother's Day, I haven't mowed the lawn once. I really don't even know how to use the thing. Dave comes home from work and hops on that thing and is done in 40 minutes, and yes, he did time himself. Anyway, I think the newness finally wore off because on Friday he taught Chace how to mow the lawn! And he did a great job too! I still think my little boy is just too little to be old enough to do those kind of things! I want my kids to STOP growing up!

So while the boys played on the lawn mower, Raygan and I planted some flowers! As I would get one flower planted in the pot, she would come behind me and drip like 2 drips of water right on top of each flower. It was pretty cute so I didn't have the heart to tell her that the water needs to go in the dirt, not on top of the flower!

Oh, yes, and while everyone else was working, Dad was supervising (if you can call it that)!

Happy Birthday to me!

Well, I finally have some pictures to post! For my birthday yesterday I went to Fred Meyers and bought me a new play toy for my kids. Isn't that what you are suppose to do when you're a mom? It was such a nice day yesterday and my kids were bored to death (I looked outside at one point yesterday morning and Chace was digging in the mud for hours) so I went to town to get them a little pool to play in and came home with something a little bigger than a kiddy pool. I hesitated on buying it because I figured we would spend all this time setting up this monster slide and the kids would play on it for 5 minutes and be bored but we finally had to pull them off it once the weather turned bad. They even played on it after the storms rolled in and finally the hot water valve outside that we hooked the hose up to ran out of hot water (after 2 hours, amazing isn't it). I can't wait to get my power bill for heating all that hot water. Anyway, that was the best present I could have gotten, seeing my kids happy and having fun! Now I get to enjoy today, Sunday, telling them they can't play on it until Monday! Yipee for me!

Chace had a little too much momentum here as you can see! He went right over the edge! We all had a good chuckle over that one!
