Yesterday we took the kids to Knott's Soak City. We had so much fun! I might have had more fun than the kids! Logan loved it. He was going all day. Just rent a raft and that kid is set. Brooklyn took a little while to warm up but by then end of the day she didn't want to leave. We got season passes since it's only 30 mins away. Anyone want to join us next time?

Do you ever have days like this? Of course you do!

Today is one of those days where I want to pull my hair our! Yep that's right I'd rather be balled than relive this day! First it started off with a little trip to Kohl's. Brooklyn screamed the ENTIRE time. People probably thought she was getting beat in the dressing room. If that wasn't enough I went to a few other stores, which got better after I bought some candy to bribe them with. I got home and let the dog in who immediately peed on the carpet. After cleaning that up I went into check on the kids and Logan got a hold of some scissors and decided to cut up some of my fabric, trim and my very favorite SILK table runner! I was at my wits end. When I picked up the scissors I even though about jamming them into myself for a split second! (I'm not crazy or unfit or anything, but really it was just a split second thought! ha ha) After I got the kids down for a much needed nap AKA mommy time, I went to open a package of candy and it spilled out the bottom everywhere! It's 4:19 p.m and I wonder if it can get much worse. I think I might lose my voice by days end!

What I'm looking forward to most in NYC

In just 2 weeks we're off to a short visit to NYC. We're there 5 days 3 or which are full days. This is what I'm looking forward to most!






And most of all just a little vacation just the hubby and I!!!

My favorite B

Quite possibly the cutest "B" yet! I love this one. Made it for Josh and Vira who are expecting a baby girl in August.

Camping at Vail Lake

We took our new trailer out for the first time with the Norris, Yorgesen and Bowler families a few days ago, it was so much fun! Vail Lakes was interesting, if there was a lake there you wouldn't know it. It was quite and peaceful and perfect for all the kids. Since we were all there together it was even better. I had a great time with everybody! And the best part is I loved camping with the trailer. That makes me happy!

Newest member of the Mann family

Here's our newest addition! HIs name is Cashis "Cash" He's a full breed boxer puppy just 9 weeks old. The kids are doing well with him, surprisingly Logan seems to like him more. If you didn't know it was Brooklyn who liked dogs and Logan who was scared. He's a boxer so he's a little hyper and jumpy, we try to let them know that's just how he says hello. Last night was his first night here and he slept all night in his crate without a peep! I couldn't be more thrilled. Now if he'll just pee outside instead of on my rugs! We think he's adorable and couldn't be happier. This is all new to me since I haven't had a puppy before, so we can all get used to him together.

Sex and the City

I went out for a girls night with 3 very special friends last night to a pink carpet Sex and the City movie event. It was....FABULOUS! This movie was everything I was hoping for and more! And to get to go with some of my favorite people made it even better. We had a great night, got all dolled up, dinner, drinks what more could a girl ask for? Ok well maybe a pair of manolo blancs hee hee a girl can dream right?
