When Morbidly Obese Angry Cats Attack…with Urine. (And Vacation Photos!)

It’s 3 a.m. and I am awake googling the words, “How to remove cat urine odor from a bounce house.” Based on the results, or lack there of, I am fairly certain I may be one of the sole unlucky humans to ever google this phrase. In case you’re wondering, you can power wash a bouncy house. I know, because I did it using soap designed to clean mildew off of siding. In case you are also wondering, while pressure washing...

Spring Break Pictures

We went to Kentucky to visit my parents for spring break! This is a tank at the park near their house. Rosie and my sister Hannah… They are so clones of each other! I tried to take nice pictures of the kids in a pretty field, but the only time we had to go to the field was when it was windy with huge clouds alternating blinding sun. I’ll have to dress them up and do pictures in Ohio later, when...

Tons of Pictures from February…

The kids with their cousin Lucy! The girls went to their cousin Lauren’s birthday party in Prestonsburg the next day with the in-laws. I think the girls had a blast at the party. These are pictures my FIL took there. While they were gone we visited with Tyler’s granny. It felt good to be back in Kentucky where everything is familiar. People smile at you, hold doors open, make friendly small talk, and their accents are soft on your ears. Columbus...

Birthday Party Fun!

Also from June: These are pictures from a friend’s birthday party for her two sons. They were turning five and three. The kids had SO MUCH FUN at this party. It was at a local farm that hosts parties. They had lots of animals to pet and play with, along with a pond for swimming. My friend’s daughter, sister of the birthday boys. Mama and baby peafowl! Or really peahen and babies, if we want to get technical. MY FAVORITES!! This...

PRIDE 2016!!

Catch up from June, pictures I never posted! Pride Parade, because everyone deserves love and respect. (And who doesn’t enjoy a good parade?) One amongst us really enjoyed the parade and may or may not have had the absolute time of his life. It was so hot out. LOL Blue teeth! They kept throwing out handfuls of candy to the kids. They also tossed out hats, sunglasses, balls, retired children’s library books, and tons of other stuff. The drag queens gave...

Ten.

One whole decade. That’s how old my baby is now. That’s how long I’ve been a mother. I was 19 and pregnant. I wish I could go back and tell the 19 year old me that it will all be ok in the end. The journey to “ok” definitely wasn’t an easy one, but we’re here now, safe and sound. Well, at least as “ok” as anyone ever is, I suppose. ;) I spent her entire pregnancy in a state of...

Vlad at the Zoo!

Now that I have a few moments I need to go back and catch up on sharing the pictures and videos from June! We took Vlad to the zoo a couple weeks ago. He loved it. I don’t think he’d ever been before. It was in the 90’s outside and very humid, so if you’re wondering why we’re all red and sweaty, and why Ada dumped water on her hair…yeah. Feeding the giraffes is always the best part, in my opinion...

Yesterday…

Rosie is getting so big. It’s unbelievable. I’m not sure how this is happening so quickly. It was almost 80 degrees out, so I let Henry play in the water. Ada played too, but not for long because the water was freezing cold! Rosie was too old to even be interested. This one…hahaha! He was pretending to be Hulk. Of course today it’s gray, cloudy, misting rain, and in the 50’s outside. One day of nice weather, five days of gray...

Hiking Pictures!

Man, I guess we have germs. Last week Henry randomly got watery diarrhea. I thought he drank some of the soapy water from the water table they were playing in the day before. He had wanted bubbles in it so I added dish soap. I told him not to drink it, but there was a few minutes where he was alone with it and you know how toddlers (especially boys) can be. But yesterday, 7 days since Henry was sick, Ada...

Pre-Easter Fun!

Last weekend was our neighborhood egg hunt. We’ve never lived here at Easter before, so I wasn’t sure exactly what to expect. Egg hunts back in Kentucky kind of sucked–all the ones we went to were like frantic egg grabs, parents encouraging their kids to take as many eggs as possible, little kids crying, some kids with no eggs and other kids loaded down. After three years in a row of horrible egg hunt experiences I was leary of taking my...
