new stuff & turning 30!

hiya!

i know i've been silent for so long...
whew! have we been busy!
and here are some pics:)

my oldest dragging my girly around on a giant floppy dog:)

all my babies on a golf cart we rented when camping:)

boys love to play with fire...and moms just have to make peace with it!


my oldest son having some campfire coffee with his momma!!

this would be the worlds smallest travel trailer!  seriously, folks.  it is a whopping 8 ft. long and pure vintage!  a dear lady that we love like a momma gave it to us 12 years ago when we were newly married.  it's a Shasta Compact from 1968.  it totally rocks.  in case you are wondering...just the girls sleep in here:)

my hubby! (thinking 'why is she taking a picture of me?')

in other news...

I'm turning 30 on Saturday!!!

i can't explain, but i am really excited!  not the least bit self conscious about it:)

also, my awesome husband has arranged everything for a weekend away (just the two of us) to celebrate.  he picked out where to stay, made dinner reservations, bought tickets to Busch Gardens ( i love me some big roller coasters!!)

we are going to stay at an awesome b&b in colonial williamsburg, VA.  i love colonial williamsburg!  we honeymooned there almost 12 years ago:)

just praying that i'll get over the mommy guilt of leaving (and worrying about the kids too) and just ENJOY the gift my husband is giving me!
