Family Pics........

My sister in law was generous enough to take our pics this last weekend when we were back home. She took TONS!!!! I loved so many it was such a hard decision. I ordered several "bigger" ones. Here is a sneak peek......

Skinny Wrap....Please!!

Be prepared you are about to see my belly after 3 babies, stretch marks and a c-section. I have done everything, ok, maybe NOT to extremes but everything that works for me and my family. Timing isn't always on my side. I can't justify paying a babysitter every time to go workout plus paying to workout. So with that being said, I have used our elliptical and I do the stairs everyday and eat somewhat decent. However, its not working. So I thought I would jump on the Skinny Wrap bandwagon. I did it this morning. Left it on for 2 hours and measured myself before and after. I ended up losing 2 inches so far. (I understand that it can continue to come off) I am going to do more, on my sides and my lower back area. But you can only do 1 every 72 hours so I am patiently waiting. I don't know how well you can tell in the pics, but I can really tell and I am pleased with my first time!!!

Heads up.............


Here comes the pics................


Be prepared............you will see stretch marks!!!













It's kind of hard to tell because of the angle, but there was definitely some toning and tightening done. I will be doing more!!!!

(ignore my pants in the after, I just washed my hands and loaded the dishwasher, my pants were more handy to dry my hands!!!)

Should have been first night baseball and GNO

We have been busy this week. Starting with what should have been the first night for Owen's baseball. We enrolled him in Parks and Rec Start Smart Baseball and he was geared up ready to go. I had his shirt on and gear in hand. Duke took him to town and they waited for someone to show up. There were several other parents and kids there too, but no coach. Come to find out, it was postponed a week and for some reason the letters didn't get mailed out. Mix up.......yep! Oh well. I promised Owen that if he was good and listened, that I would have brownies made for him when he got home. He walked in the door and asked if he could still get his brownies even though he didn't play. Gotta love the kids!!!







I also had girls night tonight. We went to Madison's Cafe and had a great time together. The pasta was delicious and the wine was even better. We were short a couple of girls tonight but still had a blast. I love these girls. It was a special night for Kristen, she just passed her boards and is officially an RN!!! So proud of her. She is also on our bunco team and has been missed a lot do to studying. But totally worth it!!! Tonight it was Laurie, Shawn, Kristen, Shelle, Chantel and I..........

Swimming Sunday.....

We went to Bub and Jen's house on Sunday to grill out and swim. The kids had a blast to say the least. They are so much fun to hang out with and great people. They are the ones that hooked us up with Owen's dinosaurs and they are doing Abbie a chandelier for her room. More on that when we get it up.

We got the hook up on dinosaurs..............

If you saw my post a couple of days ago then you know that we did Owens room in dinosaurs. Well...........we totally got the hook up on dinosaurs for his walls. My husbands cousin (and his awesome wife) own Pro Dezigns and they are known for vehicle wraps to advertisements on the big windows to car magnets, everything that prints, they do! pretty much!!! Anyway, today my hubs came home with some cool dinosaurs for his wall, they look so cool in person. Take a look.....

Ignore the light bulb sticking out of the lamp, I don't know what is going on with it, need to find a different base I think...........




Owen sportin' his new shirt that Aunt Sarah and Uncle Dallas got him......
And the messed up nose from falling down the stairs...........LONG story!!

St Louis Zoo

Went headed to the Zoo this past Monday for the day. We are spur of the moment people, and we aren't crazy about making plans, we both like the spontaneous things. Keeps us going!!

Anywho, we left early headed for St. Louis. I love their Zoo, its free, can't get much better. (Except for parking, which is a rip-off!! $12 just to park, that's NUTS) And realistically, I would have paid about $50 to get up front parking. Hey, it's a lot of work with both small ones, let alone navigating a parking lot where people don't slow down for anything or anybody.

We did pay to get the "bracelet" which allows for the children's zoo, the train ride carousel and a couple of other things but those are what we did. Totally worth it!!! Owen LOVED the water thingy in the Children's Zoo. And the train ride was a nice switch up to walking.

The Favorites.....

Owen~The reptile house, he is fascinated with snakes and lizards!! Even though the whole way there he kept telling us that he wanted to see the dinosaurs =)

Abbie~The push up pops that we kept her stocked up on. Those $3 ice creams were totally worth it, she would just sit in her stroller and eat and walk around. Hey, kept her hydrated and we didnt' have to chase her.
