Well, it's been one of those months. Someone put a curse on our home and everything has been breaking. Let's see, first the DVD broke (a while ago), next the grill, then my favorite 2 red vases, then I broke 2 plates. While Paul was gone, the computer shut me out, the roof lost 2 tiles, and our screen door fell off. Our washing machine started spilling water everywhere and our dishwasher is holding water. What's next?? Luckily we have NO broken bones, so that's good. All we can do is laugh!!!

They say that Mia looks just like me; my friend, Michaela, calls her the "good-time girl". That is so true. She like to have a good time and has a free spirit. I just hope that she isn't too free, like her mother. For example, I ran into another vehicle this weekend with the new mini-van. I don't know how Paul keeps so calm with me. You all know how organized and exact my hubby is. He is very intentional and does not just "pull into a parking lot or do something on the spur of the moment". Me, on the other hand..........well I hit parked cars in a church parking lot. How hard is that??? To top it off, Paul sliced his hand open while showing the owners of the hit vehicle what I had done. So he had to go to urgent care on Sunday to have 4 stitches put in. Look what I have done?? I sure do love my husband. He hasn't said ONE negative thing to me. Let's not forget that we have a large sum of money to pay in order to get the van fixed. Those of you who know us well are probably choked up in laughter cause you know how opposite Paul and I are!!! I'm so glad for Grace!!!!

We were invited by Justin, Sheila, and Will to Pinetop. We rented a cabin together for the weekend. Justin was kind enough to take the kids for joy rides in the golf cart. I think Kennedy was most concerned with the gum pack left in the cart from daddy. She loves to chew gum now. That's her newest rage. Gum, gum, gum, gum!! That's all we hear about. We love it!!

We had the opportunity to go to Pinetop and get away from the heat. We had a great time up in the mountains. While there we hiked, made smores, and attempted to fish. All we could manage to scrap up was a bunnch of crawl-daddies. Ewwww..........Kennedy didn't seem to mind. I thought they looked like mini-lobsters.
Daddy wanted to tell ghost stories that night. Then each of took turn telling stories. Kennedy kept getting upset cause I would include her name in my story. She would say "no mommy, there's no Kennedy!" It was pretty funny. They kept wanting to hear a story about a volcano. Of course my story was NOT scary. Thanks to Stephanie for allowing us to use her cabin. We always seem to have a good time up there!
As you can see, Kennedy has taken quite a liking to the new addition in our family. I think that there are some days that I have to remind her that I AM the mother. She takes great care of Lincoln. She even likes getting him out of his car seat. I discovered that one day as I came down the stairs to find him out of the seat and laying on the carpet. Hmmmmmm......how did that happen?
Because David (Pappa) and Paul are such competitive fishermen, I think they forgot that they were supposed to be letting the girls do the fishing. I thought I was gonna have to remove the Barbie fishing pole from David's hands. He was determined to catch a fish as soon as Paul caught one right away. The girls didn't seem to notice. They just like helping reel the fish in!
While Paul's parents were visiting in May, we went fishing down at the pond in the neighborhood. David (pappa) bought the girls their very first fishing poles. I think we were all surprised at how many fish we caught. I guess daddy is a great fisherman! Kennedy wasn't scared at all but Mia was a bit hesitant to touch the fish. Kennedy actually wanted to kiss the fish good-bye. I had to say no.
