SnL's New Addition

7-week-old Tripp :)

These are the only pictures I have from the Memorial Day/S's birthday cookout that Iz and I went to on Saturday. None of the kids :( I was just too in love with this little guy! Hopefully someone else has kid pics that I can steal soon!!!

Day 23 - A picture of your favorite book.

It's impossible to pick just one!

I love these...

...and these...

...and don't forget these!

Plus I love this series...

...and this one!

I'm a big fan of series of books. The Women's Murder Club, Kay Scarpetta, Narnia, Sookie Stackhouse....the list goes on and on. I can't pick a favorite single book or even a favorite series. 

Currently I'm reading Wicked by Gregory Maguire and listening to Witch and Wizard by James Patterson and they're both good, in different ways. I also like a good historical romance every once in a while, especially Ashes in the Wind by Kathleen Woodiwiss as well as anything by Nicholas Sparks or Jodi Piccoult.

I'll read pretty much anything I can get my hands on but what I haven't read yet (but secretly want to) . . .
don't tell anyone, ok?

I want to read the dirty book.

You know the one I'm talking about, right. Shhh...let's keep that between you and me. Unless you have a copy you're willing to loan out. In that case - call me!

Day 22 - A picture of something you wish you were better at.


Some people just have a knack for keeping things clean and organized despite crazy schedules, kids, pets, etc.

I am NOT one of those people.

Day 21 - A picture of something you wish you could forget.


And I didn't even watch it!!! 
Hubby watched parts of it once day while Iz and I weren't home and then was *nice* enough to tell me all about it. 
It LITERALLY made me ill. Do not watch this movie. Don't even look it up to see what it's all about....

Trust me. 

You DON'T want to know.

Hubby, IzzyB and I have been trying to head out every weekend for the last month or so to get some fresh air and do some walking. I didn't take any pictures except on our hike last weekend. There is a wildlife preserve close to our house and I drive by the beginning of a trail almost everyday. I've always wanted to give it a try and see where it leads so that's where we headed yesterday. We didn't know when we started that a lot of the trail was uphill....but it was worth it when we got to the top!!!

Quick rest on what Iz referred to as a "couch rock."

 Up at the top Iz noticed a lot of cans and trash others had left behind so she grabbed a plastic bag out of my backpack and started cleaning up -
LOVE that girl!

View from the top

Callie loved the little stream we crossed on the way back - 
She got a cold drink and cooled off her feet!

We are loving our little family hikes. 
Planning another one for Mother's Day - checking out another local trail!!!

Mimi's Playground

Mimi got a new playground (LUCKY GIRL!) and we just HAD to go check it out during vacation!

Playing in the sprinkler.
Was it warm enough? Not really....but they didn't care!

I can't believe these are the only pictures I took that day but I was far too busy chatting it up with L. The girls play so well together that we didn't even have to break up any fights :)
