Mad River Maddness!

Sure glad we wandered over to the river bank! What a wonderful day, mama's! We look forward to enjoying many more beautiful Humboldt summer things together! It's so fun to watch our children play, learn, explore, and be in nature! I think that's where they learn the most and cultivate that sense of wonder and curiosity at this young age! Man-what a cute group of kiddos we've got!
Run, Isaac!

Isaac, running again!

Justin's Birthday Celebration

We had a fun little belated birthday celebration to celebrate Justin's 3rd birthday today at mom's group. Thanks Lacey for letting us hang out at your house! The kids had a blast playing with cars and watching the movie Cars, (Justin's favorite movie of all time.) Justin told me afterward that he had fun and loved the cupcakes, (sprinkles are his favorite.) Here are some pics of the festivities, (I went over board taking pictures of him, sorry, couldn't help myself!):

Dude, check out that fire!

Just let me eat the cupcake already mom!

He hid when we sang happy birthday to him.

His artistic candle sculpture.

Dayton loving that icing!

Emily and Bean - too cute for words.

Can't you see I'm busy here? I love this face!

Why God Made Moms

Deanna e-mailed me this funny kid questionnaire. It is so great, thanks Deanna!

WHY GOD MADE MOMS. Hope you have a good laugh...Answers given by 2nd grade school children to the following questions:

Why did God make mothers?
1. She's the only one who knows where the scotch tape is.
2. Mostly to clean the house .
3. To help us out when we were getting born.

How did God make mothers?
1. He used dirt, just like for the rest of us.
2. Magic plus super powers and a lot of stirring.
3. God made my Mom just the same like he made me. He just used bigger parts

What ingredients are mothers made of ?
1. God makes mothers out of clouds and angel hair and everything nice in the world and one dab of mean.
2. They had to get their start from men's bones. Then they mostly use string, I think.

Why did God give you your mother and not some other mom?
1. We're related.
2. God knew she likes me a lot more than other people's moms like me..

What kind of little girl was your mom?
1. My Mom has always been my mom and none of that other stuff.
2. I don't know because I wasn't there, but my guess would be pretty bossy.
3. They say she used to be nice.

What did mom need to know about dad before she married him?
1. His last name.
2. She had to know his background. Like is he a crook? Does he get drunk on beer?
3. Does he make at least $800 a year? Did he say NO to drugs and YES to chores?

Why did your mom marry your dad?
1. My dad makes the best spaghetti in the world. And my Mom eats a lot.
2. She got too old to do anything else with him.
3. My grandma says that Mom didn't have her thinking cap on.

Who's the boss at your house?
1. Mom doesn't want to be boss, but she has to because dad's such a goof ball.
2. Mom. You can tell by room inspection. She sees the stuff under the bed.
3. I guess Mom is, but only because she has a lot more to do than dad.

What's the difference between moms & dads?
1. Moms work at work and work at home and dads just go to work at work.
2. Moms know how to talk to teachers without scaring them.
3. Dads are taller & stronger, but moms have all the real power 'cause that's who you got to ask if you want to sleep over at your friend's.
4. Moms have magic, they make you feel better without medicine.

What does your mom do in her spare time?
1. Mothers don't do spare time.
2. To hear her tell it, she pays bills all day long.

What would it take to make your mom perfect?
1. On the inside she's already perfect. Outside, I think some kind of plastic surgery.
2. Diet. You know, her hair. I'd diet, maybe blue.

If you could change one thing about your mom, what would it be?
1. She has this weird thing about me keeping my room clean. I'd get rid of that.
2. I'd make my mom smarter. Then she would know it was my sister who did it and not me.
3. I would like for her to get rid of those invisible eyes on the back of her head.
