The Bunny Has Been Recovered

On Sunday the boys came running down the stairs shouting, "mom, look what we found!"  I almost cried when I saw Sam's stinky "bunny."  Apparently it had been shoved into one of Finn's toy dump trucks.  I am tempted to go ahead and steal it from Sam and hide it away safely in my cedar chest.  I have decided that "bunny" will be the baby toy I keep of Sam's and "little blanket" will be what I keep of Finn's.

Sam being a ninja turtle.  He really gets into the role.
Michael and Finn spent much of Sunday afternoon building his "Lego" Spiderman/bad guy van with Michael.  Finn did awesome.  Michael has the patience of a saint I tell you.

This week was spirit week at school.  Monday was character day.  Finn dressed as a ninja turtle (go figure) and Sam went as a little bit of everything.  He had a "Batman" hat, a "Superman" shirt and "Spiderman" shoes.

Tuesday was "Tie-Dye" shirt day.  Neither of my boys own any tie-dye so they went in regular clothes as shown above.  Finn was pretty bothered by the fact that he didn't have a tie-dyed shirt.  His solution was to just not go to school.

Wednesday was "Hawaiian" shirt day.
Finn has an great Hawaiian shirt.  Sam has an "actual" Hawaiian shirt.  He is wearing a shirt with a hula dancer on it that Gran bough in Hawaii.


  1. I like Finn's solution to not being able to participate in "tye-dye" shirt day.
    He is either passionate about participating fully in school life, or, a future lawyer (as evidenced by his gift of creative problem solving).

  2. Let poor little Sam keep his bunny. It won't be long before he will move on to other toys. Remember how upset you were because Finn turned 5 years old????

Finn and Sam give Will absolutely NO personal space whatsoever.  They are always in face yelling and grabbing on him.  For a few minutes he will tolerate it.

Then he gets mad and starts swinging those arms.  I have warned both boys that they deserve whatever Will dishes out. 

Last Thursday was Finn's field day.  He wasn't too excited about it because he didn't get to participate at all.  He was even more upset by the fact that he only came home with a "participants" ribbon.  I guess Finn expected to get a ribbon for "Best Score Keeper."

Mexico Beach

Today I embarked on my first ever “girls’ trip.”  I have always had friends that went with their other girl friends on beach vacations, but I have never been on one myself. 
The trip started at 6:30 a.m.  I kissed the boys goodbye (Finn woke up to make sure that he got a hug) and hopped in my newly cleaned van to head to Robyn’s house. I had originally intended to meet Samantha and Karen in Hendersonville, but I spent a little too much time with the boys and got behind.  Instead, we met at Robyn’s house a little after 7:00.
Once we all arrived, we packed up the van and set out for 109.  The van has really come in handy.  We were able to get all of our suitcases, bag, pillow, etc. packed neatly into the van with room to spare.

We officially hit the road at 7:30 – the destination – Mexico Beach Florida.  Samantha’s mom has a condo that she graciously let us rent at a ridiculously low price.  The crew consisted of Samantha, Robyn, Karen and myself.  Samantha sat up front with me; Robyn an…

Gatlinburg 2.0

In mid-June Finn and Sam accompanied Grandad and Gigi to Gatlinburg.  This is their second annual trip so will refer to it as Gatlinburg 2.0. Michael, Will and I were at home, so outside of some awesome pictures and few sweet phone calls, we don't have a great deal of knowledge about the trip. What I do know is that the trip started with hot Kristy Kremes.  Upon arriving in Gatlinburg, Finn asked if the "hot sign" was on.  Seeing that it was, they stopped in for donuts.

They also went back to Clingman's Dome.  They went last year, but I didn't pack long pants and jackets so they were pretty chilly.  It was also really foggy last year.  This year went as planned; the air was clear and the boys were warm.

One of my favorites!

Another favorite.

And . . . another favorite.

They went to Dollywood later than evening and then again the next day.

It amazes me how pop culture "savy" kids are at 5.  I was never that "in the loop."
