A few days ago, Jenny sent me an old post from the blog--it was July 29, 2008. It had some snapshots of the kids. They have grown so much! Go check it out here.
I thought it would be fun to do the same thing on the same day 2 years later!
I tried to document today with my iPhone and my decent camera.
The day started early for me. We had a 5:45 am bike ride at the lake. It is way early but look at that sunrise! I love riding with friends.
I came home from the ride to find Kyle and Hank awake but that's it. We finally had to wake the big boys at 8:00 for VBS. But once Bo got up--we got a visit from Underwear Head Man!
We got a surprise 'pop in' from our some of our favorite friends--the Bindras! We were watching a few minutes of some random cartoon. The only way I can get their attention is to hold the remote hostage until they smile at me. Now that is some good parenting.
I am also the Bindra's unofficial family photographer. Here is a cute one of all the girls!
All of this week, my parents have taken my 3 big kids to VBS at their church. My parents have stayed and volunteered in their classes. They have had a great time. And it has been fun to have some time with Hank this week. Mom couldn't go this morning so Poppy took all the kids by himself!
I ran an errand while the kids were in VBS and then picked up a Sonic drink for me and Allison. Yes, I took a picture of myself with my iPhone. I am cool. I thought it might be the only picture of me today. Gotta love Sonic drinks!!!
No, this is not a daycare at my house. These are some of our cousins. Well, technically these are my 1st cousin's kids. What does that make our kids? I can never get that right. 2nd cousins? 1st cousins once removed?
But the fun thing is that my cousin Will married a friend of mine Allison! She is so great and so are their kiddos. Of course, they got dressed to put on a show. Now that I think about it, we never really got a show. But just like high school, getting ready for the dance is way more fun than the actual dance!
After rest time, our cousins Sam and Jack came over. They actually walked over! How great is it that we have cousins that close by. My kids adore them. They have spent time this week planning a sleep over with Sam and Jack. Should be fun! I don't know where Sam disappeared to for this pic. But the boys love to play race cars on the hardwoods.
Hank spent some time in his high chair while I got dinner ready. Yes, he is eating a bat and a football and some sort of spreader from the kitchen.
Dinner with the family. We had chicken pockets, rice and green beans. It was good and the kids ate it pretty well--that's always great! Hank ate more than anyone! Please note our beautiful everyday china. That would be disposable dinnerware!
Silly boys at dinner.
We like to always have serious family dinners.
Just love Hank's curls after his bath. And just for the record--all the kids got baths tonight. Unfortunately, that doesn't happen as much as it should! Just being honest.
Now the kids are all in bed. I am on the sofa with my laptop sitting next to Kyle watching So You Think You Can Dance and eating a delicious chocolate cupcake (thanks jenny). Couldn't end any better. I love my life.
