Evidence of a good time


You know some days I just wonder how on earth I got to be SO blessed to witness some of God's greatest masterpieces. Then, I look in my own home, and see several more!

Sometimes they act like they like each other, or that they aren't grossing out their Mom by pushing loose teeth forward during a photo... but for the most part they are good kids. Usually.
Got to visit the COOLEST hat store while we were in Seaside. All kinds of hats, for all kinds of occasions. The hot dog hat, the pizza hat, the pirate hat, the hippie hat. There were hats for kids, hats for grownups, hats for practical purposes, hats for just being goofy, and even hats for dogs! It was fun. Lots of fun.



Our kids each picked out a hat, of course. They haven't taken them off yet either.
Yes, we are missing one kid. She was at Winter Camp with a bunch of other youth for the long weekend. Family dynamics sure change when you're short one kid (meaning: things are usually quieter and CHEAPER! haha)

The Carousel Mall also had... a Carousel! It's hard taking action shots on my lazy ol' camera.

This balloon appeared to have an unreasonable amount of attraction towards my husband.
Weird.
Overall, we had a really good time - and, I got some cool photos out of it. Bet you'll see them on my Word Filled Wednesday posts coming to a blog near you!

Sorry you are under the weather again. Take bunches of Vit C and get well so we can go for coffee!

Looks like fun!! I hate that you're sick again, darnit!

Great pictures. Isn't it funny that even ONE less kid makes things so much calmer?? Crazy.
