Coming up for air

I feel like I've dropped off the face of the blogging world. Most likely because I have in fact dropped off the face of the blogging world. Last week allowed no time to blog.  Kris was overseas for the first time since I’ve returned to work.  Two babes + work + dog + bottles + packing food + laundry + etc etc etc = a mix of sleep deprivation and teetering on the brink of insanity. How single working moms keep it together is beyond me. My head did not hit the pillow before midnight. I drank more coffee than humanly possible. I didn’t wear my sunglasses while driving for fear that the shade would cause me to doze off and end up in a ditch. My children don’t sleep so yeah, there’s that too.  They make up for it in cuteness.

But finally, FINALLY, we are leading up to one of my favorite weekends—Memorial Day weekend.  Officially kicking off summer is 100% acceptable in my book. The festivities will start with a weekend trip to Ohio.  El Vaquero will be happening (obvi), a trip to the zoo and aquarium will be taken (which I’m dying to visit.  It’s Jack Hanna’s zoo! Parker will love it.  Or maybe I will love it more.  Teagan will definitely love it since she loves everything and everyone), water will be splashed poolside if the weather permits, and the Memorial Day parade back home in Michigan will cap off the weekend.  Yay for sunshine and fun and OH-IO!
Zoo trip last Sunday. Parker very much enjoyed feeding leaves to the elephant statue.

Teagan very much enjoyed watching.

I’m very much so looking forward to all the fun we have planned for summer.  Between our two favorite local lakes, aquatic center, zoo, outdoor concerts, movies in the park, 4th of July vacay in Traverse, Kris and I both celebrating our 29th birthdays for the second time, 4 year wedding anniversary, and ending with vacation round two to Myrtle Beach, we are busy beavers this season! We also have some pesky nice weather things to tackle, like having the exterior of our house painted and removing a very large tree.  Both things I need to get calling on to find some (hopefully) good quotes.

Bring it summer—we’re ready for ya!


  1. I'm having mild anxiety about my upcoming birthday. How is this possible? I'm pretty sure we graduated like 2 years ago. Enjoy Ohio this weekend!!

  2. Right?? To think that we graduated EIGHT YEARS AGO (!!) is simply not possible. I still feel young though and that's got to count for something :)
