It's Friday!
The days seems to be flying by and summer is passing more quickly that I can hardly imagine.
I don't seem to be taking as many pictures, I think because we have been so busy.
Maybe, I don't know.
Anyways, pictures.

Last weekend while on our drive home Ainsley spotted this cloud formation.
Mama, look! It looks like a baby!
It totally does.
Do you see it?
Something I've been noticing lately, Kansas is really beautiful.
When I was younger I never paid attention to it other than to lament it's boring-ness.
But now, wow, my eyes have been opened to the beauty that we are surrounded by.
Yes, even when it's 106 outside,

Last weekend my Dad took us to go see Brave {thanks Dad!}.
They had a preview for Finding Nemo in 3D.
Now, normally I'm not a huge fan of 3D.
It costs more and ticket prices are ridiculous as it is.
But, I tend to get headaches during 3D, well, headaches during movies as it is.
But, Nemo in 3D, I think we are going to have to go.
Finding Nemo was the first movie that Adison ever saw in the movie theater.
I have such fond memories of that experience and would love to take her to see it in 3D.
This picture cracks me up, my Dad was teasing her and she couldn't help but keep an eye on him and his antics.
{Have I ever mentioned before that my dad is a big goofball? He is, I love it and my kiddos do, too.}

The other evening I was going through some of my old jewelry looking for a pair of earrings for Adison.
Homegirl has sen-si-tive ears.
She had a pair of sterling silver earrings on but the backs weren't and her ears were angry.
While searching for something else I found my old watch.
I loved this thing and wore it for ages.
I told K that we need to get a new battery for it so I can wear it again.
Isn't Minnie the cutest!?!

Enough said.
Well, except, yum.

So, the 5K is tomorrow.
Say what?
Yep, tomorrow.
I'm super excited.
Plus, to be honest, nervous as well.
I know that a 5K isn't that long of a distance, but I really want to run the whole thing.
I'm so excited about the whole experience.
The color being thrown everywhere.
The fun of running with my friends.
The whole thing.
Oh yeah, did I mention that I'm heading up sans kiddos.
Yep, my first night away from the little two for non-medical reasons {having a baby or surgery}.
I'm looking forward to having fun with my friends but slightly anxious.
It will be fun, it's not that I don't think that they will be well taken care of because, hello, K is an awesome dad.
It's just me. Being weird. Okay, I need to stop.
It WILL be a blast, I'm have been looking forward to this for ages.
It's time, time to get my 5K on.
Like Donkey Kong.
{I couldn't resist.}

So, yesterday I mentioned our shirts that we made.
This is our team name, Save the Snails.
I mentioned forever and a day ago about the epic snail crossings that we witnessed on our walks.
I'm talking hoards of snails crossing a busy bike/walking path.
My friends and I, having multiple littles among us moved them out of the way to avoid squishage.
The kiddos were so upset when we would come across one that had been squished.
So, back then, you know, forever and a day ago, when we first decided to do a 5K together, we decided that we would be team "Save the Snails".
Don't you just love when things work out as planned?
I do.

Okay lovelies, head on over and link up over at Life. rearranged.
I can't wait to see your pics from the week.


  1. I love the shirts. I hope you guys do great on your 5K. And if you don't run all the way that is way better than me. Oh and by the way I nominated you for the Liebster Award. Head on over after your 5K, and check it out on my blog.
