you filthy animal

Yesterday was Avery's last day of preschool!! It has been a good year, but I am so ready for the summer!!
...unfortunately Idaho is not.
It was about 40 degrees out yesterday when we all packed up and went to the zoo with Avery's class. We were supposed to have a picnic in the park afterward, but we all headed back to the school and ate lunch on the floor of the gym instead.
Here are a few pictures of me freezing my bum off.
Of course we had to visit the monkeys. Those guys are awesome.

K loves getting candid shots of me. How do I like it?
Not so much.

whiz palace

Is it weird that I want summer to go by quickly so I can get back to these two?

know ya boo

Is it weird that I miss my little sister even more now that she lives down in Las Vegas instead of ONE BAZILLION miles away in England!?Yeah, you're right.
It is weird.
It's just, like, now it feels like we are finally close enough to hang.
But we are not.
I should be glad that I got to see her last month in Vegas.
And last weekend here in Idaho.
But I'm not.
Because today I would really like to watch Troop Beverly Hills with her and Do the Freddy.
Or What About Bob, then eat a meal and only say MMmm and Oohh the entire time.
Or Strictly Ballroom, because I feel the rhythm. And I'm not scared.
Or BAPs, so that if I see L. L. two more times, it's on!

...yeah. We're nerds.

mean ben

You guys, I need help.
I am pretty much obsessed with Parks and Recreation.
It is sort of taking over my life.
I joined Hulu.
And have been watching it.
And I have to tell you one more thing.
I love Ben Wyatt.
A lot.
And Ron Swanson.
And Tom Haverford.
And Andy Dwyer.
...okay, I'll stop now.
But if you love waffles, tiny horses, nerds, libertarians, or if you have absolutely no idea what I am talking about, you need to check this out.

the party don't start til i walk in

Avery's Fourth Birthday Party.
It could not have been more of a success. I also could not be more beat right now. I think I'll let the pictures do the talking for me. We had a face painter, tons of sweets, excellent food, a huge red ball of death and fun and insanity, a pinata, presents, sunshine. I could not have asked for a better day.
I love my baby girl so very much! She is so special and perfect and wonderful, and she had a great day. I can't wait to show you my plans for Carter's first birthday party next month, too!! I am so blessed to be these girls' mom. So here it is, a fourth birthday party in pictures...

That's what this picture is titled.
Just thought you should know.

days go by

Hey y'all! Man it has been a while! Beginning a new semester, having left my camera in Las Vegas and planning the Birthday Party of the Century (coming up in two days!!) have all caused me to ditch my blog. And that's no fun. Nor is it healthy, I believe. I hope that posting a little something (instead of paying rapt attention to my math professor) will help me make it through the next few crazy days.
My little sister sent me just a few (TEASE!) pictures from our family photo shoot in Vegas and I thought I would share my favorite. I love this one because we all look just a little bit kooky, which is an exact portrayal of my little fam if you ask me! My camera is returning to me along with the arrival of my parents, Mallory and Giles tonight! I promise to let you all in on the birthday bash and do a bit better at getting onto the blog and writing to you.
