summer list!

I have seen this idea on many blogs & have loved the idea/couldn't wait to get our list going..

I have my new huge chalkboard up in the kitchen & it's the perfect spot for our list!

(I absolutely love my new chalkboard, thanks for your help honey! ..except for the fact that I got a bit eager with the paint & got outside the lines a bit.. oops.. to be fixed later!)

 Here's our to-do list for this summer!

(can you tell which ideas were Aidan's? ..Chuck E. Cheese, ice cream, hot dogs, s'mores.. 
I think our boy has an obsession with food!) 

So far, we only have two things completed from our list.. 
but Aidan is constantly asking me to read him the list every morning to see what we can do for the day! 

This fun sprinkler kept Aidan entertained for hours.. money well spent!

Catching fireflies is pretty much an every night activity here! 

Love that Aidan talks to them & then lets them back outside before he goes to bed :)

What fun things are you planning for summer?

happening lately..

We had fun visiting with my nephews while they were in town a few weekends ago, we met them almost everyday they were here to do something fun together.. Aidan's favorite was the Air Zoo!

Left to right: Jackson, Sammy & Aidan :)

While we were checking out the helicopters, Aidan was being filmed for an upcoming commercial.. 
he LOVED all of the attention!

The majority of the afternoon was spent riding all of the rides!

He rode this ride about a dozen times.. 
didn't need Mommy to go with him anymore, he's growing up too fast!

Riding the balloons..

We wrapped up our time with the boys at a Father's Day party at my cousins lake home.. 
Aidan also had his first boat ride! 

He was so tired from running around with all the kids that afternoon, he didn't last long on the boat!

We had a great Father's Day celebrating the best Daddy! 

Love my boys!

tiny talk tuesday

I haven't been keeping up with all of the things Aidan says very well lately.. but just this week he has been entertaining us with his silliness!

Aidan: "Mommy! There's a squirrel in our neighbors yard right now!"

(our neighbors are kinda far across the street..)

Mommy: "Really? How can you see it way over there?"

Aidan: "With my eyeballs!"

I have been VERY tired & feeling yucky lately, kinda like all day morning sickness.. Aidan was so sweet the other day saying:

"You need to rest Mommy, that baby in your belly isn't being very nice to you today!"



After trying for what seems like forever.. we're expecting! 

I am only 2 months along, but couldn't wait to share the news..

..Aidan is SO excited as well! 



Hey! I'm actually completing this linky party on the right day! ;)

1. If you had to choose, how would you prefer to spend money.. on a pool or on landscaping? DEFINITELY landscaping!!! I wouldn't want to clean said pool, and I know that I would be too lazy to keep up with the chemical routine for it, so bring on the pretty yard! I would love to have a perennial garden, and pretty sculpted beds around our home.. right now it's just mulch & hostas, which pretty much take care of themselves :)

2. Death penalty, yay or nay? You know.. I don't know. I think that there are some horrible crimes being committed out there, and sometimes don't feel it is punishment enough to have the criminal just sit in jail the rest of their lives.. you know? 

3. What is the worst thing you child has gotten into when you turned your back/blogged/showered/blinked? I think Aidan was 2 or so, and I was not feeling well that day.. 
I got up to go to the bathroom, accidentally leaving a bottle of Pepto-Bismol on the table.. Aidan opened the bottle & completely dumped out the contents all over the floor.. 
even after stem cleaning, there's still a pink hue to the carpet! 

4. How often do you REALLY go to the dentist? I go once a year.. & only after my mom bugs me ;)

5. What is your favorite animal? Donkeys!!! I have no idea why I love donkeys so much.. 
look at them, aren't they adorable???
