Ty just came out of his room after he had already been tucked into bed. The kids know we don't like it when they get out of bed.

Which must be why he straight for the VERY descriptive language.

In a very sweet and innocent voice, he said, "Mommy. My tummy is kind of hurting. It feels like there's dynamite right next to it and it's going to explode at any minute."

Tell me how you really feel, Ty.

This kid is so dramatic. I don't know where he gets it from! Sometimes he is so dramatic I just want to light myself on fire!

Yo-da Best

Briggs made this card for me 

Just Because. He said he saw it on Pinterest and thought it was "adorable". 

Love him.

Daddy! I want a golden ticket now!

What's a sure fire way to annoy your big sister? 

Imitate her using a Veruca Salt voice.

Well played, Briggs. (To his credit, she was kind of throwing a Veruca-esque tantrum.)

Family nature walk

 Consumnes River preserve nature walk with the family.

Ashlynn's 6th Grade Promotion

 The top picture is Ashlynn with one of her besties, Lauren. In the package is a dainty little necklace with the letter A.
 Picking out this promotion dress was Kind Of A Big Deal for her. She thought about it and shopped all year until she found this one on Modbe
 Sir and Lady Macbeth.
After the ceremony Ashlynn and I went out to lunch at BJ's. I didn't want to make too big of a celebration out of it because I wanted to keep the bar low for 8th and high school graduation!

Ashlynn got the presidential award for getting straight A's for the past 3 years and she got to sing with a group as well.

Ty asked me this morning, "mom. Were the nurses surprised by my sticking-up eyebrow when I was born?"
