Wordless Wednesday: Blueberries!!!!!!

For more Wordless Wednesday go HERE and HERE!

"Blanch" and "Fran"

So Saturday I went to one of my favorite places to shop for "house" items. Home Goods! I was just looking around seeing if they had anything good... (I got 5 WoodWick Candles that were over 1/2 off!!) Anyway, I was looking at some dishes just seeing if there was anything I just had to have and this woman, we will call her Blanch, decides to block my path through the isle I was checking out. So I waited, didn't say anything to her, but continued to wait. She was taking her sweet time, so I waited till she was about halfway down the isle, walked around to the other end and started checking things out from there.
As I picked up a cute little white bowl (which I of course had to buy!) to check it out, another lady, let's call her Fran, saw what I was looking at and exclaimed how cute it was. She inturn decided that this isle was the place for her so she excused herself as she squeezed past me and my shoping cart to check things out for herself. (Did I mention that these isles are kinda small, especially if you have a shopping cart?)
So we (Fran & I) are talking a bit about how cute things are and Blanch starts sighing really loudly. The sighs just keep getting louder and louder. I finally look up and said, "I'm sorry Blanch, are we in your way?"
She proceded to turn to me and Fran and YELL, "Well, I moved maybe two inches and you both just pushed your way in here and now I can't even get to the things I want to look at!"
So, I apologize and start to move out of the way, and Blanch keeps on yelling! "It is just rude to push your way in front of someone who is trying to look at things...."
So Fran throws up her hands turns to me and says, "Oh my word!" as she walks away!
Blanch sigh again with enough force to rattle the dishes she just "couldn't get to" and stormed off the other way.
I was left standing in the isle by myself wanting to shout at the top of my lungs, "Jesus loves you Blanch!" But instead I steadied the dishes that were still shaking from the horrible Blanch sighs, I decided that I should take my candles and bowl and run before Blanch found a the isle that houses the knives and came after me!
I may avoid shoping on Saturday from now on.....

***Oh, I think I forgot to mention that Blanch was checking out the row of Halloween dishes that had witches all over them!

Mystery Ride #1

Friday morning we met up with
my friend Jessica and the 2 sweet girls she nannies for
and we headed out to the Berry Patch!
The kids didn't know where we were going
we just said we were going for a mystery ride!
We had a wonderful time picking berries,
getting rained on, and laughing!!!
Getting ready to go pick!

"Jessie" demonstrating how it's done!

Yummy Berries!

Big Squirt's famous question "How many did I pick now?"

We found a whole bunch of Caterpillars.. They boys loved them!

The Caterpillars kinda grossed the adults out!
Seriously, what is with these things???

Check out all we picked! We had a blast!

For those of you who don't know, Matt and I are in the process of purchasing our first house!  It has been fun and kinda scary at the same time!  Our offer has been accepted, the contract has been signed, and Thursday we have inspections!  If all goes well, we will sign the final paperwork on July 31!!!!  We are so excited and a little nervous!  This is a huge step!  I can't wait to get keys so I can start cleaning, painting and fixing things up!  
Pray for us as we continue to get paperwork together and start planning for our "renovations".  Can't wait for you to come by and visit!

Milk! It is so good for you!

So tonight at dinner, Little Squirt requested milk and Big Squirt requested water. Halfway through dinner Little Squirt changed his mind and wanted water too!  This has become quite the habit and so I told him when he finished his milk he could have some water. He started to fuss. So Big Squirt turns to him and says, "Milk is good for you!  It has lots of Vitamins, and Mickeral (I am guessing this means Minerals), and Ketchup!"
Little Squirt looked at him, smiled and said, "Oh, Yep it does!" and drank the rest of his milk!
So, have you had your milk today! You don't want to miss out on all that good stuff!

Little boys are funny!

So yesterday we (The boys and I) went to the arboretum with some of our best friends Maggie, G & B.  Later we were joined by our favorite girls, but while we were walking around we got to the boy's favorite spot. 
There is this little waterfall that turns into a small stream and follows the path down into the woods. The boys love to dip their hands in the water and put handprints on the sidewalk and just generally get wet!  Well yesterday they had it turned of and there was no water.  We were all devastated! 
They kept asking over and over again why there was no water. We explained about 5 times that they had turned it off, and we didn't know why. So we kept walking and all of a sudden G yells, "Maybe a fat guy came and drank up all that water!"  
Maggie and I tried to keep our composure, but we both ended up laughing like crazy!  What do you say to that?

Wordless Wednesday: Wedding Fun!
