A Visit to the Carousel

Sunday was an off-and-on rainy day, Daddy had lots of writing to do on the computer, and Mommy was trying maintain some order.  Late in the afternoon, we were all ready to escape! 
So we headed to the local carousel for a few rides and to introduce Bubba to the whole experience.
Mommy tried to get a group picture as we waited for our first ride :)
Clearly Bruiser was all set with this!

And then I lost Sassy!

My whole family...with 3 out of 5 looking!

Bubba loved the horse to start!  He thought he was SO big!

And then the horse began to move...

Not so sure anymore...

This one was in heaven!

And then he dove into Daddy's arms and had to sit the rest of the ride!

His hands were like this the entire ride!!!

My kids!!!!

It was good to get out of the house and spend some time just having fun as a family!  Now we are back into the week and gearing up for a trip to Papa and Mimi's...which Mommy is going to tackle on her own...yikes!

BIG Things at The House of Sprout!

So yesterday we said good-bye to the family car of nine years.
We brought home 3 babies from the hospital in this car, made too many trips to PA to count, and traveled around town for many years enjoying the space and seating.  Then Bubba joined our family and we knew our days in the mini-van were limited.
It had a few dents and a lot of dirt, but it was used and loved :)

About three weeks ago, Sassy was sitting in her seat and all of a sudden looks at me with complete shock "We drive a mini-van, Mommy???"  Captain Obvious, that one!

So with more kids than we can handle and all the stuff that comes with them, we moved on to this beauty!

Yes, it's huge.
Yes, it's a truck.
Yes, I have anxiety every time I drive it.
But, oh my gosh, is it ever cool!!!
We bought a few years used so that we could indulge in some luxuries...leather seats, entertainment system, bluetooth!  I feel like I've caught up with civilization!  My van didn't even have power sliding doors!!!!!

So this is "Bruce" joke with the name :)...and we are loving him! 
Now I must go mop up water from the leaking washing is it that every time you make a large purchase something else has to break?????

A Rite of Passage

Bubba has his first experience with corn-on-the-cob last night!  This is one of my favorite almost toddler things each of our children have expereinced.

I think it's safe to say it was a hit!

Fireworks with Friends

We met up with our friends to watch the fireworks and had a little fun before they started!

Well...that was a fail!

And then "photo bombing" started!

Our 4th on the 5th!

On the Fourth of July, it rained.  I mean, it poured!  So we went out to lunch, went to Target, shopped at Old Navy a bit, toured the mall, and headed home for movies and naps.
THEN, on the 5th, we headed to our piece of heaven on earth...Second Beach!


Best. Day. Ever.

A Visit with Mimi (and Papa, too!)

After we got out of school, we headed to Papa and Mimi's for the weekend.  Mimi and Luke snuggled a bit and then Papa took over :)
