Dear Lego Manufacturers.
Seriously?! 1000 pieces? $61.00?!
The set that my son "has" to have because he saw it on tv on some commercial that you put on.
Why do Lego's have to be so small? Why do they have to be sharp and hurt to step on? Why does my 4 year old have the need to spread them all throughout the house? Why wouldn't they come with some sort of carrying case or box with a lock on it? Why must it be the ONE thing that my son wants for Christmas? Why can't I justify it?
Le sigh.
So if you, the Lego company, could address the things listed above. I would be more likely to purchase from you next Christmas.
The end.

PS. after typing Lego that many times it looks funny.

Montrose Pools (Catalina State Park)

Sorry ahead of time for the amateur pictures.
So this summer we have been trying to do things that are inexpensive and allow us to have a little "staycation" we have done quite a few hikes and figured out places and things to do on the cheap. :D We had to make up for being such mean parents and not taking our kids to Breakers, or Disneyland. Heh heh. ;D
We all had fun, although, at times I was wishing death on my hubby and his brothers for "tricking" me into this deathtrap of a hike.
I'm really kidding....sort of....the kids loved it and had no problems.

Hunting Tadpoles

The waterfall at the pool we ended up stopping at. (the water pressure was really hard)

Notice the boys hunched over? (see above explanation) and Miss Tia-ever the model.

A rock slide that the kids played on (it was soo slippery)

Sliding! (Did I mention Miss Tia is always modeling?)

This is across from the water slide looking at it.

Oh and just an aside. I wore jeans on this hike and had no desire or plans to get in the water at all...finally I decided I would be fine to go in like knee deep well then I slipped and went under. It was soo graceful. :D


First Day of School

Sigh. Back to school. Bittersweet. The kids are out of the house....but the kids are out of the house. I love for them to go to school but I miss them while they are there. And Tailia is not in school yet so she gets a little lonely (and spoiled) without them here. She will start school next year. It is great too because all the kid's teachers are wonderful and they enjoy class. Thank goodness.
On a sidenote, did anyone else almost die from a heart attack when they got their supply lists for school? I'm pretty sure I blacked out for a little bit.

Did I mention Tai has her own backpack and school supplies so she doesn't feel left out. Did I mention that she is a bit spoiled. Just a bit.


Life is good....no....Great!

My favorite sound?
My kids laughing and playing together.
Some people wonder why I had my kids close together.
There really was no plan, just have kids as they came.
But I am so thankful that they are close in age because they get along so well. They all play together and the boys put up with the girls shenanigans(sp?) and help them when they need it.
I am so proud of all of them.
They are so fun.
Okay..I'm done now :D
What's your favorite sound?
