birds on lines

Joel left for California today. He will only be gone for two days.
I am already bored.
We are headed out the door to go do something. Not sure what yet?
All I know is I have to get out of this house.
If I hear "There's a party in my tummy" (from yo gaba gaba) one more time I may go mad. lol
here's the link in case you never heard it Party in my tummy
Noah plays it over and over on his iPad.
Joel thinks it is funny.

Happy Wednesday xoxo

movie day

We have been wanting to take Noah to the movies for a while and just never seem to get the chance.
We finally took him yesterday to see Kung Fu Panda 2.
He really enjoyed it. He loved all the action. He ate a ton of pop corn.
I think this was the first movie he was not nervous?
Maybe because there was not very many people at the showing we were at?
But, he was relaxed and had a great time.
It was a cute movie and Joel and I laughed along with Noah :)

Happy Monday xoxo

Happy Friday

light up the sky

The week went by so fast. Crazy that today is Friday already.
Tonight the base is having a family appreciation day event.
Food, live music, fun, fly overs, and it all ends with fireworks.
should be tons of fun!
It is all right across the road from our house so I hope it is not too loud for Noah.
It will be nice to just sit on the front lawn and watch the fireworks.
Wishing everyone a great weekend and a very
Happy Friday xoxo

Father's Day

father and son

We had a great day yesterday. It was a Happy Father's Day!
I cooked Joel a nice breakfast, lunch and dinner :)
I bought everything to make a cake but once I was getting
started I found I have not unpacked my cake pans...sigh.
So, we had fresh fruit instead.
Joel cut the grass after his run. He also cuts the elderly neighbor's grass.
she lost her husband a few months ago. And he cuts the girl next door
who's husband is deployed overseas.
He is a great husband and a great father to Noah.
We are so blessed!
We ended the night with watching Night at the Museum 2
and Noah loved it.

Happy Monday xoxo

My heart feels sad. The house feels lonely.
I need to keep busy. I have tons to do anyway.
We will see everyone soon I hope.
I hope to be able to go home soon and visit.
Mom and Margie got home just fine around midnight.
Everyone is happy to have them home again.

a cup full

cup is full
I love the smell of coffee. Waking up to it every morning has been wonderful with my Mom here.
I love coffee in the winter not so much in the summer.
I'm going to miss waking to the smell once my Mom goes home.
Her last week here. I know she is looking forward to going home and to her routine.
Really, I am shocked that she has stayed so long but I am happy she has.
I hate to see her leave and my heart will break and I will be so home sick again.

Happy Wednesday xoxo

The weekend

summer nights

love summer nights. It has been a little warm but that's ok!

the stroller

We found the jogging stroller in the garage. So, thankful for this awesome adaptive stroller that we got last summer. It took months for us to finally get it and a lot of phone calls and we still do not have all the parts. but, we love it just the same. Noah loves running with Joel and that makes me happy and he fits perfectly!

pool happy

First day at the pool this year. He had a blast! He held tight just like the last two years. Then we took him to the 3 foot area and he could touch his feet and wow... he let go and was on his own and not scared at all. he was running and jumping in the water and oh so happy. We hope it is the start of him feeling good in the pool again and not being scared. Keeping my fingers crossed! 

people watching

It was just so awesome to see him so happy and relaxed. He had such a good time.

I am loving the Summer so far!

Happy Monday xoxo

Happy Friday

Summer days

So happy that summer is finally here! Boy, I thought it would never come.
We are still having a great time with my Mom here and she is keeping me busy.
She is having fun but misses home as well.
My sister gets here next week and then they both leave the following week together.
I'm going to be so sad and miss them like crazy...sigh.
I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend!

Happy Friday xoxo
