here comes summer...not!

Okay so we have had the weirdest weather ever the last couple of days. The sky just opened up for 2 days and poured. something us Californians are not use too!! At the office we all stood and watched the rain. Like we have never seen rain before. Which we have but not that much rain in about an hour or so. Streets were flooded 2 feet across, mudslides in the fire areas, tornadoes that is right tornadoes!!! Now I am sure for those of you that live in the midwest are thinkin buck up girl we get that kind of weather yearly. Seriously we just don't get this kind of weather and it freaks us Californians out! It is officially Memorial Weekend. Kickoff summer weekend and we are stuck in the house. Not sure what I will do with a 11 year old boy stuck in the house. We already have had nerf dart wars and fort building going on. Which I will have to say is not really my favorite. I am going to let you in on a little secret of mine. I am not a FUN mom. I detested going to the park when they were little. I did it but hated every minute of it. I am not the Mom that gets on the floor and does puzzles. I can count on one hand how many times I let them build forts in the house. I really envy Moms that did and do this with their kids. She is one of them and when I read her blog about the activities she does with her kids I marvel at that! Now this is not to say that I don't do other fun things. I sound kind of mean actually admitting this. I am going to go out on a limb and say I have other Mom gifts. I am sure I do. Not sure of what they are right now. haha!
So we have officially sold out the Me and My Freckle Friends Crop Event. You can click on the logo on the sidebar and see what we have in the silent auction. Even if you can't attend you can bid on the awesome projects we have up in the auction. If you do live in the area you can also put your name on the waiting list. You never know. Things do come up. You just may get lucky!

I am going to post some of my favorite pictures today. I still don't have a camera but I do have pictures on my library!
These are just a couple of photos that bring smiles to my face. Jaxon and his buddies at the desert riding. My South Africa trip and the "group". Park City at my parents house. Makenna taking the many pictures of herself. What is it about girls and taking pictures. She has tons of these kinds of pictures. Her alone and her with friends. Cracks me up!
I gotta go nerf dart wars are still taking place and I need to get it under control.

Let's mom? Hmmm.....I'm seeing dirtbikers, beachgoers, snowlovers......Take back that fun mom comment! Who wants to get on the floor and do puzzles anyway?

Love your pictures....I want to go to South Africa someday. I HATE the park too, seriously, that is why I stay home more than I should because it just seems easier to be at home with them. From what I have read here, you are a super supportive FUN mom btw...always excited about your kids events. Hope you guys are doing something fun today......I have already passed up an invitation to go to the park :)

When I saw the news about the tornadoes all I could think about was "The Day After Tomorrow" is happening now!
