After Jack went to school, the fun really began!
Cole got marshmallow eyes!
I used to love the indoor smores as a kid. I think the fact that I ate the amount of mallows called for IN the recipe BEFORE they made it INTO the bowl....kind of changed my thoughts on the whole matter.
Is that not the biggest bag of chocolate chips you have ever seen? It's bigger than his cute little head. "Mom it's so heavy foe me!!"

I searched this guy out forever. Corn rows just aren't that great on anyone. Would you be shocked to know we found him in the casino?? -Kyle was giggling with excitement when I spotted him and got this sneaky shot!
o.k. so I apologize if anyone fell ill during the viewing of this photo. My sweet Kyle was so flustered with the fact that we FOUND lady in yellow...(she was worth an extra 25 points!!!) he couldn't keep his eyes open. I actually think he chose to keep them closed! We had seen ENOUGH of this lovely lady all day. It was like the sharpie pen episode of Seinfeld, "I can't stop smelling the pen," I couldn't stop looking at that body suit, and wondering...WHY..WHY would you wear that????? I couldn't quite make out what her undies said but they were sayin somethin!! You just be thankful it was a back shot!
Our fun formal night dinner!
Then off to the happiest place on Earth.
I love taking my kids but it was so nice just to have some time quality time with Kyle and Helen and Bob Parr.
So now the laundry is caught up, food is back in the fridge and life is back to normal. Thanks for sharing in my vacation joy! Anyone got a flaming yellow bodysuit in their closet?

O.k. so the Thomas' are on the mend. All is well and each member under 6 is tucked away for the evening :)
Cole is officially over the flu..hallelujah! He was quite the trooper. We actually left the house and drove in the car today and even went inside a public building....dreaded Walmart, it had to be done. Nice to have him on the up and up!
Brody and the garbage can are having some issues. One is cute and chatty and curious, the other is shiny, and smelly and inviting...I guess. I should have probably sprung into action and released his hand, but it's happening so frequently these days, I just stopped to document instead.
Chocolate cupcakes with a choco/peanut butter frosting and Reeses crumbles on top. If your allergic to peanuts, I'd stay away from these.

One poor guy who didn't have the "umph" to do anything-literally- let alone wish his beautiful mother a happy birthday was my Mr. Cole. It all started like this:
I'll spare you the photographic proof of what went down pre- Cole and post/current Cole. However, the story is riveting . Jack and Cole are taking Tae Kwon Do, which I love. Jack loves it as well, Cole could take it or leave it....he will take it. Tuesday afternoon rolls around and we are getting dressed, getting excited, and having one last sip of Cole's Gatorade (which I believe sealed the deal on Cole's current condition). Boys are in the car, all is well. We get to the building and Jack opens the door, I'm holding Brody and Cole is behind me. I turn around and there is Cole throwing up right at the doorstep to his class. Brody is screaming terrified, Jack is still holding the door like a deer in the headlights, and I'm thinking...eeewwwww, gatorade.....! So long story short, I look for someone to hold my screaming toddler,a place for Cole to continue puking in semi-privacy (stairs), and anything to clean the mess up. One lone water bottle later the mess was mostly cleaned up and Brody was still screaming with his stranger. Needless to say, there was no Tae Kwon Do for us that day....I didn't even mean for that to rhyme, it was just that poetic.
Fast forward to my day of birth (yesterday). Cole is still out of commission and sicker than sick. Plans got changed a bit, however, the sun was shining and I had friends a plenty, call and stop by so life was good. I even got my hair colored, ordered dinner to go from my favorite place and had a date with myself in the Target parking lot..Happy Birthday to me!!
Cole at happier times!

Cole may have fallen asleep while waiting for dinner but don't you go nodding off, this is some good stuff.
We like to use popcorn buckets as helmets, I especially enjoy letting my toddler wear one and then just let him go......
Some folks may actually bath in their bathtub. Mine is strictly used as a playground and all 3 boys participate in the fun. Cole built this "amazing factowy with cool woofs" They drive cars and trains all around and inside out and now and again get wet (darn giant faucet gets in the way).
Side note-anyone who can tell me how to flip my pictures so they aren't sideways...I'd be so grateful!!
