Just in the Nick of Time

sometimes i wonder how and why things happen the way they do. it seems as though just when you need something, it arrives! this was the case yesterday when we arrived home from our errands to find two packages on the front porch. one for roman, one for momma. clothes and goodies for roman, clothes for momma too! mommom must have known we didn't have anything to wear to church today. well, problem solved! check out this swanky dude...

isn't he just mr. attitude? shoulders back..."oh yeah, i look good"

i just wanna eat him up...how about you?
momma got a new outfit too, aren't we spiffy?
thank you so much mommom for the new outfits! we love them...and you.

Rocka Rocka

this kid makes me wanna do stuff that i normally wouldn't take the time to do. tonight we sat on the porch and had a peanut butter sandwich on the rocka rockas (the rocking chairs). i'm so glad he is making me slow down and enjoy life.

isn't he handsome?

Good Times...Good Times

once upon a time, we lived in ohio. we met some really great friends. john and autumn were our neighbors and we knew kyle from work. kyle was really smart and started dating chrissy. about 4.5 kids ago...we went skiing over new year's eve. we had a great time. i just found these pics in my old dinosaur of a computer. i had to post them because it makes me happy. good times. maybe we will all take our kids skiing someday. hopefully there won't be any scary late night drives on seriously curvy, icy roads.

kyle and chrissy

autumn and john

toby and stacie

what the heck is that hat about john?

pretty girls!
extreme close-up
sorry this isn't rotated. but i couldn't leave it out. the hubs is just crazy. always.
it was an "adult" weekend. not that kind. i'm not even sure kyle is an adult.

i seriously got sunburn on the slopes that day.
how bored and pissed off do i look? i'm pretty sure i was just the only sober one.
what a great time with some really great friends. sorry to interrupt the regularly scheduled programming for this trip down memory lane.

roman, dat is cute, isn't she?

Bike to the Beach

we had a great time today. the sun was shining and it was nice and warm. so outside we went. we rented a bike and a kiddie kart to go behind it and headed to the beach to soak up some sun...and a little sand too.

i told him to give me a thumbs up...i guess he's a little confused. oh well, we're #1!
we made it to the beach...this fountain is so cool!

i think he was checking out some cute chick on the next blanket!
having a picnic on the beach is pretty cool.
headed to the water
does this really need a caption?
i love little toes in the sand
back to the blanket
so serious!
on the swing or the "rocka rocka" as he calls it before we headed back
thank goodness for the weekend!!!!

Wow, What a Weekend

seriously, i feel exhausted from my weekend. but man, did we have fun! friday night was girls night at jessica's. fiesta fresh and crafting. the girl time was definitely necessary and i loved hanging with jess and allison while getting some crafts completed. more on those later. rylee wasn't looking forward to a soccer weekend in columbia, so we invited her to hang with us for a few days. so much fun...roman seriously loves his cousins! on saturday, we went to island playground.

are they cute or what?

we were there for an hour and a half...what a workout for me! ready for the parade!
roman saw lots of cool things in the parade...like horses, boats, motorcycles and dogs. he had a wonderful time at his first parade. hala was there too, clapping the whole time.
is tomorrow monday already? dang...this went by too fast!

Fresh Air

it seems like almost everyone had a little taste of spring this weekend. we took advantage of the nice weather and headed outdoors on both days. ro and i did a little shopping on saturday and then headed home for a nap. toby was able to start work on the lawn, getting it ready for spring and summer. today, ro helped his poppa outside for a while so i could get some cleaning done and then we all hung out for a while before the sun went down. we even sat on the step barefoot this afternoon. it seemed warmer outside in the sun than inside. i love that. open windows, fresh air.

enjoying some fruit snacks outside

they kinda stick to your teeth this is his new smile he scrunches up his eyes and nose and shows all his teeth. so cute!going for a scoot

yup, he's wearing socks with his crocs. blame the momma. it was still a little chilly.
all the way around the block, whew! time for a break... my handsome little man
