Mine Summing Soup

Can I be honest?  I'm not really sure where April went.  Or the first week of May, for that matter.  :)  I spent a lot of time sewing (if I ever take pictures, I'll be sure to share it), a lot of time dropping off/picking up kids, a lot of time feeling sick ("morning" sickness, ha!), and a little bit of time in Utah, watching my awesome mom graduate from college.  It was a pretty good month (minus the puking), and thankfully now I'm starting to feel a lot better, so hopefully I'll be around the blog a bit more.  I know I've said that before, so I'm not actually going to make any solid promises, but I'll try.  :)

Because I can't just leave with that, here is an awesome video from this afternoon.  We had just gotten ready to go outside and play in the sprinklers, but Cailin wanted to talk about her "summing soup"--and I just hope I can always remember that adorable phrase that really means her swimming suit.  So cute.  I love her.

And a few pics I snapped using InstaGram... still not sure if I love the app or not (really?  I can't zoom?), but I do like the easy editing on the photos.  Anyway, the first picture is Janey trying to convince Breanne to run with her (she and Cailin had already gone through a number of times, but Breanne didn't really want to join in... she's never liked running through the sprinklers, silly girl), and the second picture is when she finally succeeded.  :)  Simple pleasures, I tell you.

Okay, first, those pictures make me wish over and over that we'd both had sisters.

And second, I'm going to keep watching that video again and again. And again.

So cute! And that video totally makes me miss you guys =).

And, I, of course, do hope you blog more...but I cannot judge, because I have become a horrible blogger! So, I hope I blog more too.

Hope your "morning" sickness subsides SOON!

I almost ALWAYS take instagram photos with camera plus, with a zoom and better actual editing capabilities. Then I'll import it to instagram. Not instant exactly, but i end up with a pic I like more. I'll take like 5-10 in camera plus and post 1 on ig. What's your username? I was just thinking the other day you should be on there :)

I can't watch the video! It says it is unavailable. the pictures are super cute though, I'm sure the video is adorable. :-) Glad you are starting to feel better!

I love seeing photos of babies and children. Guess its because I'm a Grandma and enjoy seeing the world through the eyes of a child.

They are real sweeties!

I love the Summing Soup. I was so confused by the post title. :)

I'm so sorry that you are still sick. :( When I'm tempted to complain about morning sickness, I ALWAYS think of you my friend. You are amazing. And seriously - your comment on FB about not wanting Oreos is SO sad. I meant that sincerely.

And thank you for your comments about Deirdre and that lame doctor. I just felt so dumb for bringing her in... but a fever of 104 was a little scary to me. I'm grateful I don't have to deal with antibiotics (I've thought of you before with the ear infections that I know your girls have gotten)... instead I get to be the mom who cried wolf. My lot! :)

I'm with you. Part of March, all of April, and now most of May have gone, and I'm not sure where all that time went. And I don't have nearly as much to show for my missing time as you do.

Your girls are just darling! My boys love the sprinklers, but then there's a lot more wrestling and lot less darling.
