My Co-workers are driving me CRAZY!!!!

First off I work with 3 girls ...which you know is dangerous and makes for days filled with drama! 


They make a mess of the office, and we dont have a cleaning service! 

They are always "sucking up" to the boss!

They never stick to their schedule 

And show up with new tattoo's all the time 

They steal my coffee and one of them I dont think is even potty trained!!!

They fight like crazy and show up to work dressed inappropriately!

They even walk in on me in the bathroom!

Two of them just told me they start a new job in September
so things may start to settle down around here ;0)

Not the best week.....

but I always try to remind myself that it could be worse!!!!!

Friday I took this picture .........

In my car as I was pulled over on the side of the road with a flat tire with 3 kids.I have never felt heat like that before, it was HOT. Anyways we were on our way to visit Auntie Kelsey at work before Kaylah's swim practice. They were already cranky because Emma has been sick with the Coxsackie we have not been able to do much. So I am driving and I hear this thumping noise....YUP thats my tire. WONDERFUL!! Luckily we were right down the street from Adams parents house. So to the rescue came my father in law...I felt so horrible that he was changing my tire in 104+ degree weather. So we say thank you and pull off and Kaylah realizes that she has missed her swim meet.....she was not happy to say the least. So here is to a better week...with

For the first time yesterday I attempted to put pig tails in Emma's hair......and it was a success.

They looked so stinkin cute and she kept them in

Here she is rummaging through Alivia's purse...where she went on to try to sneak a piece of Alivia's gum.

Here is Emma's "Can I have a piece...Mom?" face!

This year instead of another year of swim lessons Kaylah signed up for the Swim Team. 

She is exhausted after each meet as they are swimming back and forth practicing strokes. There are 4 strokes..the back stroke, breast stroke, freestyle, and the butterfly. None of which I can do...well besides the back stroke.

Here they are all lined up. In a few weeks they have a meet against Hanover ...where Steve Carell's daughter is apparently on the swim team...I know Iam a nerd...but how cool would that be? 

Tonight I am super excited for our dinner ....Turkey meatloaf and this......

Our very own homegrown zucchini and squash with a little olive oil, salt, pepper and garlic....YUM!!!

Our 1st Official Camping trip!

This past weekend we loaded up the kids and the camper for the first time and went camping at Ellis Haven Campground in Plymouth. We went with our neighbors Mike and Joanne (no pics of her without her hand in front of her face)

My brother and Nikki

And these cute kids

The kids were so excited about riding in the back of the pick up truck to the pond. Kelsey and Brendon came too. And the kids were so excited to have them there!

We did alot of this....

and this

And this...lots and lots of eating

We did a TON of swimming too...the pond was beautiful and crystal clear. They had 3 docks you could swim out to and dive off. Kaylah and her friend Mia had the most fun doing this, they also rented a paddle boat and paddled around the lake together.

Emma was such a good girl and had a ton of fun playing outside and swimming the days away.

Emma and "ikki"

And here is sweet Cam...who was a trooper considering he had his tonsils and adenoids out just 4 days prior!

Here is Kaylah and Mia on there way to the kids dance! Auntie Kelsey did their hair and they were up picking out outfits for awhile before hand. LOL I think Kelsey and I danced more than they did. Kaylah told me numerous times I was embarrassing her.....but they had fun. Then we headed to the icecream shop!

We had such an awesome time and had wonderful company. It was so nice to be away from cleaning and laundry and to enjoy time with our family and friends. Nothing more relaxing after a long day of swimming and playing and eating.... than sleeping kids and being able to sit around a fire with adults, and thats how we spent each night ..........Already planning our next trip!

Here are some cute pics of the girls I took before we left on out camping trip!

Emma....Show us your mad face!

The girls recently taught Emma to do a mad face. Now all you have to do is ask her to show you her mad face and she does this and breathes in and out of her nose really loud and fast.

Then we ask her to show us her happy face and puts her hands up and dances around saying "Happy..Happy...Happy"

She totally cracks us all up doing this.

Yesterday poor Emma was pooped after celebrating her cousin Ella's First Birthday. She never got a nap in this is how I found her while preparing the older girls dinner. She has never fallen asleep in her highchair before. I picked her up and cuddled her for awhile...its been so long since I have been able to hold her while she is sleeping since for the most part she goes to sleep on her own. She was so snuggly but made me sad that she is getting so big....There is just something so special about holding a sleeping baby (toddler)
