The Durham Bulls Game

The boys are gone for 2 1/2 weeks.  I think as moms we all have those days where we wish we could have a break Well let me tell ya, it's not all that its cracked up to be.  I am so bored!!  And I sure do miss my little guys.  I even ended up watching a Spongebob by myself!  And the pool is so boring.  The only benefit is that I have been able to work out on my own.  This is going to be a long 2 weeks.  And with Remii working all the time, it gets pretty lonely.

We went to the Durham Bulls game on Saturday.  And the whole time we were there we kept thinking how much the boys would have loved being there.  We did have a great time though.  I love the time I do get to spend with Remii.  We have so much fun together!

Father's Day

We had such a great Father's Day on Sunday!  We enjoyed a nice day at church and some time at the beach.  I am just so thankful everyday for Remii.  He is more than I could ever ask for and the best father figure and example in my boys lives.  My boys just love having him as an 'insta' dad.  We are just so lucky!

My little fish

My boys love the water.  We live at the pool and spend all of our time there.  Luke loves to jump in and swim with his floaties on.  Well yesterday, he jumped in and somehow his floaties came off.  Well he swam under the water and grabbed onto the side before I could get to him.  He looked at me with a scared and panicked look, but was really proud at the same time.  I love my little fish!

Here are a few of Lukie's tricks!

The Recipe Critic

One of the only reasons Remii married me is because I love to cook.  Ok so maybe there were other reasons involved.  But I'm pretty sure it was because of my love for cooking.  What's that saying?  The best way to a man's heart is through his stomach.  I got that covered.

My sister helped me create a blog to keep and review all the recipes that I try.  It's a huge work in progress and I have a lot to post.  But I wanted all of my recipes in one place.  I would love for you to become a follower and share some feedback.  I love trying new things and would love to try some recipes that you have too!  XOXO

Kings Dominion

The guys in the office won an incentive to go to Kings Dominion on Saturday.  It is in Virginia about 2 1/2 hours away.  We had so much fun spending time with our friends and hanging out as a family.  Ben is still talking about the ride called, The Intimidator.  Me and Remii were the first to go on it.  I'm not sure why I did because one of the wives just rode it and blacked out.  It is that fast.  So I went out and I blacked out for a second.  Seriously.  How is this ride legal?  I guess too many people were blacking out last year that they put some breaks on it.  Still insanely fast.  So of course the guys loved it.  Remii wanted to take Ben on it.  I was dumb to let him.  Ben blacked out.  Remii said he was screaming and then got quiet for a minute, and then started screaming again.  Oh geez.  One of his friends said, what doesn't kill ya makes you stronger?  Well I don't want to risk my children's lives to make them stronger.  Haha  Anyways.  It was a great time!  And when it started getting too hot, we cooled off at the water park.  Such a fun day!

The fam.  I've got such a hunk.  ;)

NC Natural History Museum

We went to the North Carolina Natural History museum today.  This museum was so cool!  The best natural history museum we have been to!  We have made friends with one of the wives that is also out here and we spent our Saturday there with them.  She has 3 of the cutest little boys, and another boy on the way!  Our boys love playing with them and it is so fun to have someone to hang out with.  The museum was so big that we only got to explore the first 2 floors.  Our boys were sad to leave but we will be going there every week.  And the best part about it.... it's FREE!!
