Wow, this month has flown by... (Speaking of "Flown")...

I hope everyone had a great weekend!

We went to the airshow on Sunday down on the base. It was alot of fun. I thought it would be nice and warm so we wore shorts.....I was wrong, WAY WRONG! lol
Luckily I did bring some hoodies for the boys so they were fine. I think I was the only really cold one, as usual.

We climbed in and out of the jets they had set up on the runway, and the boys could not get enough! They really had a great time.

The only bad part was while we were standing near the runway waiting for the F22's to put on their show, one of them flew by super close with burners and scared the crap out of poor Jacob, EVEN with the ear protection on. He screamed and started crying, poor guy :( He was pissed from there on out and refused to have anymore fun (I know thats completely shocking with Jacob right? Being bossy.....? My son Jacob, not a chance! -sense the sarcasm?)

Summer time! Summer time!

Well we've been enjoying the great weather here. We had a few days it rained so that stunk but much better now.
We've been staying busy and going for walks, going to the park to play, going to friends houses to swim etc.
Tristan of course has John's complexion so he's starting to get some nice color. And Cubby has my complexion and I keep seeing more little freckles pop up. He's got them across his nose and cheeks, they are SO cute!
If you remember back a few posts we had a sinkhole in the backyard. Well over the weekend, John completely tore that up and had some fill delivered and fixed it. What a huge job that was for him...... and the sinkhole was insane! So deep, but its fixed now and everyone is safe lol :)
We are all doing well... and trying to soak up this summer and enjoy it before that cold weather comes again in September/October :)
I'll attach some pics here of us lately.
I hope everyone is having a great summer!

We got pictures in today :)

Tristan's Preschool year-end Pictures!!! I love them! They gave the kids the option to wear their dance uniform or regular clothes. Well Tristan chose both lol. So we had to quick change him. And of course for his 'regular' clothes he picked the Patriots jersey which he would wear every day if I let him lol.

Fathers Day Weekend!....

A time for all of us to be thankful for our Daddies. And an especially thankful and Sad part of John and my life. Since our fathers are both in Heaven and being our guardian angels. I know I can speak for both of us when I say that we are so thankful for the time we were blessed with our Dads' presence, and their teachings and life lessons, and we both wish there were here in the flesh with us so that we could tell them ourselves. But I know that they know that. And I know now that they are watching over us in a different way.


Lately not much has been going on so we just have a bunch of pictures that I will share with some shorts words about the pics.

We took a trip to the zoo with a bunch of our friends...

We decided to stop feeding our squirrel "Speedy" because Annabelle kept eating the peanuts that dropped and it was making her sick. Well Speedy was pissed to say the least!

Tristan also found a "special" potato that mustve dropped out of the bag in the pantry while he was in there. I think it realized it was forgotten and literally tried to grow legs and walk away.

This is a small pic of part of our huge (15ftx15ft) sinkhole in our backyard we are attempting to get fixed by the homebuilders. Part of it completely caved. This hole goes down about 3 feet.

And last but not least.... Thanks to the beautiful weather we are having our "green" backyard is back and we can play outside and have beautiful flowers (with nasty bees) but we love it!!!

Happy Thursday :)

I hope everyone is having a fabulous week so far!

We are doing well here.......enjoying the beginning of summer weather. It's been beautiful here in the 60's! And everything is turning green again. I forgot how much I missed all of the green! Soon enough I'm sure we'll be camping and fishing up a storm. We have an extra room if anyone wants to come fishing.... come on up!

Our first order of exciting news is that Tristan lost yet another tooth! That makes 3 total, all right next to eachother. He, again, decided that he didn't want to wait for it so he messed with it way too much and ended up forcing it out. The tooth next to it WAS pushing up on it a bit though also (you can tell from the picture). After he got it past the "point of no return" we had to stay up and get it out, took up 45 minutes. This is getting to be a pattern.... always ends up at bedtime, I think maybe he's just trying to stay up late lol.

Anyway, it wasn't coming out so easy this time, but it was very close to ready to pop out. So I decided and convinced Tristan that Daddy could probably do it because he so much stronger than me. Well...... Daddy got in there and yanked and well, I guess it wasn't quite as ready as we thought and Tristan screamed. You'd have thought John was ripping out his entire lower jaw the way he screamed. Well Daddy loosened it up pretty good and it wasn't too long after that, that it finally popped out.

The "Alaskan Tooth Fairy" writes letters along with giving cash so this time the Tooth Fairy made sure to write to Tristan and tell him not to force his teeth out and to let them loosen on their own. So when he showed me the letter and we read it, he looked at the ground embarrassed, sighed and said "Mommy.....she knows", ha ha ha!!
It was priceless!

Jacob has also decided that since your gums bleed when you lose teeth that he "never wants to lose his teeth" and he "wants to keep them".

As for me, I got back from Seattle on Tuesday afternoon. As some know I was there for a doctors appointment with a new Endocrinologist. I'm still having trouble with my Graves Disease and all of the lovely symptoms that accompany it so I went there to see what this doctor could do for me. They've decided to add another type of medicine to see if that can change things so everyone keep their fingers crossed that I'm back to "normal" soon. Well normal for me anyways :)

John took time off of work so he and the boys has a weekend just for them! I know they enjoyed it.

Before I left for Seattle the boys wanted to come with me, so they put themselves in my suicase lol (see pic below).

I also recently dug through my "Save Box" from when I was a kid and Jacob saw my T-Shirt I still have from my Elementary School days and put it on (see pic below).

Thats about it here....... I'll toss some pictures in here from recent.
