Partners In Crime

July 14, 2009

Life is busy.....I keep thinking that things are going to start to slow down, but that is just not happening. There is always somewhere to go or something to do. I have had little to no time to blog about what is going on in our lives and haven't had much time to make my rounds and stop in on all my bloggy friends.....Sorry, I am still here and hope that as the summer comes to an end, I will get back on my regular schedule!!

On Sunday, we had Kira and Ivy up for a playdate. It was a gorgeous day to be outdoors, it was warm with a really nice breeze......so unusual for this time of year. Anyway, the girls had such a great time running around together....and when I turned my back for one second, Sarah snuck the into my bag and took the skittles. She quickly grabbed her partner in crime so they could eat them under the tree. Sarah is on to me and knows that I keep a stash hidden in my camera bag for those who need a little bribery to cooperate:) The teddy bears they were playing with minutes before hit the dirt as soon as the skittles came out.....

While the girls were in complete sugar shock, Nick and Eddie, another duo to be reckoned with, had some fun of their own.......They played some ball and did some rock climbing, and even allowed us a couple minutes to have their pictures taken:)

I am juggling my job this week and some special activities for the boys.....we have a great day trip planned for Thursday. They have been talking about it since Saturday and are really excited about where we are going. Look for my next post......it will surely be filled with photos from our excursion:)

Hope you all have a great week!!

I love play dates and the pics are just amazing as always. The blog looks beautiful and try your hardest to slow down. Remember, this is supposed to be summer-- the slower time. I keep saying the same thing to myself with no avail. I am goiing crazy busy as well-- too much going on. Try to relax.

Watch out - eventually she may graduate from Skittles to some higher sugar content. Heh.
