Just Hangin' out

 The kids were getting on my very last nerve, so I realized I needed to do something fun with/for them.  Sometimes as I scroll through my blog, I think to myself how amazing my life must seem to the outsider.  Don't get me wrong, it IS pretty amazing, but we definitely have many moments of yelling, screaming, name calling, bad moments, etc.  I'm just not one to pull out the camera, or have the desire to document those moments.  I know, I probably should do a little bit, since my kids might think they were perfect angels when they grow up.
Anyway, I pulled out my sheets and tied a knot on top of the table to make under-the-table-hammocks.  The kids had a blast in them,and it kept them entertained for a few hours each day (we left them up for a few days), so it was a win-win situation.





 Here are a few more of the newest member.  Her face is getting SO wrinkly. Her cheeks sag and when she runs they sway back and forth - so funny.

 Funny how she likes to prop her head up to sleep.

Genius! Very fun. If we end up going international, you guys will have to visit or come with us!!! It would be fun to have you close by.

You are such a fun mom, and that dog needs to live closer to us!

You are amazing Summer. This is a fantastic idea! Do you mind if I "pin" one of your pics on my pinterest so I can remember to do this someday?

Summer said...

Pin away, ambs.

I have thought the same thing about my blog but I look at it this way, I chose to remember the good times, the times "filtered" out from the bad. I know the bad is there but I chose not to dwell on those. I want to remember the fun times we had, the mischief that my kids get into, and may be some of the sad, but mostly the good. Hope that makes sense. That poor dog of yours. She is really so stinking cute! If I did that with my kids the knots would probably come undone and they would probably land on their heads on the tile. That would be my luck! :)

Where do you get your ideas? You are so stinking crafty and creative. I love the picture of Ava looking like she's escaping her crypt! Yeah, your blog does make me feel super lame, but I still love you!

Love the table hammocks! What a good idea!

Ava in the last picture cracks me up.

You guys must be having cold weather, if you're all inside like that for days! The hammocks look so creative and fun! I used to take the cushions off the couch and through a sheet over the top for a hut. I miss all of you, even the dog!
