an adventure

Michigan Adventure..............................................was an adventure to say the least......

Did I prepare correctly for this day, nope, well actually yes except for battery's... These are all the pictures I was able to get before they died!!! :(

Overall everyone had a great time!! I could have had more fun had I been able to ride A rollercoaster, just 1 at least but I was destined it seems to have a fun day watching a 2yr old have a great time!!!!

I am so amazed by Ari and what and how he did!! It was awesome... He rode EVERY SINGLE RIDE he could! ALL BY HIMSELF!!!!! I was shocked, I know that the older 2 never would have done what he did at their age...... Oh and we spent A LOT of time in the water park area of it......
For being 2yrs old without a nap that boy rocked even with his 2 meltdowns(boy can that child have a meltdown:))
Chris and Isaac AND Norah spent the majority of the day riding roller coasters :-) Turns out Norah wasn't tall enough to ride the majority of them herself but many said she could as long as there was a "responsible person" as some signs said or "responsible parent" as others said and she did. The girl was a fearless coaster rider...

Isaac on the other hand was VERY Leary in the beginning... Actually came back to me from the first one "mom i got to scared once we were there and had to come back" and then I hear that the next one, after the wait and once they were doing the thumbs up to go he says to Chrs "I changed my mind I don't want to now" and Chrs says well it's to late for that buddy..... HE WAS HOOKED after :)

Come to find out, oh about 30min. before we were ready to leave that when we paid to come in we could have had a "parent pass" Which means that one parent waits in line with older kids and that once he's done riding the ride he hands off the "parent pass" to the patiently waiting parent with the toddler and then she could have gone up the exit and gotten on the next coaster going, no wait!!!! NICE, REAL NICE!!

Anyway I'm glad Ari came along and had so much fun and next year when we go we'll be getting a sitter for him and the 4 of us will be going and having a BLAST riding all the rides :)

I think it's been a bit since I've been on here..........apparently feeling a blog lull.... We've been really busy with school crap and animal crap and kid crap...(not literal CRAP) Ari has come down with a "cold" or as I like to call it "teething with allergy's" started yesterday and it's timing is PERFECT, we are going to be going to Michigan Adventure tomorrow.......
I will take lots of pictures!! and even went out and bought something for this wiggly, jiggly arse to wear in a public swimming place....
Apparently I've been a tad bit depressed and my body is showing it... I HATE how quickly it shows things like that, the older you get UGH!!!!
Know what else I hate, that I could be a marathon runner and would still have thigh's that jiggled and wiggled!! I'm one of those type of runners!!! poop!!!!!!

Hey, how you all been? What have you been up to these last few days?

Me, well let me tell you, I've been helping the school move to it's new location and then cleaning(what seems to have NEVER been cleaned). See my kiddo's go to a "private" classical ed school and until NOW both schools(the grammar and secondary) have been in 2 different church's. They were finally able to find an acceptable location(a school that was closing down)and then thru A LOT of work(fundraising) purchase it. So this past Saturday was moving day, and MAN did they have a lot of stuff to move, even with a huge uhaul and 2-3 trucks with big ol trailer's attached....

I was exausted after that all day move!! Today I got a sitter (thanks again grandpa and grandma) to watch the kids and went to the new school and scrubbed and scrubbed and scrubbed the entire day away. AND not in air conditioning either...
I swear if not for those lovely donuts and HUGE cinnamon rolls I totally would have sweat off at least 5 pounds!!!! But I sure didn't gain anything from eating them ;)

I'm off to dream land.........

So I have a friend that's one of those "nope not gonna ever have kids, nope not me" "don't want them" she always said. MY kids LOVE her, she's awesome!! She'd be a terrific mom!!
She got engaged 2yrs ago and we've(mostly her, some me help)been planning this wedding(Ya I'm in it)since. Shortly after the engagement she found out she was pregnant. Hitch, it was tubal:( I was heartbroken for her but I also knew that she needed this to find out that she did indeed want a child. Yup that's just what happened.
She has since gone back to her old ways of "don't want any kids" "not having any kids" "Janet anytime I think about wanting kids I just come over and babysit" :)
So fast forward to now and were almost thru with everything for the wedding, it's in October(actually it's on my due date for Ian) We've planned, purchased, MADE a bunch of stuff. Drove 3hrs to Ohio for a run thru with hair and makeup and nails. We are all set.
Monday I'm at dinner with my mom, 2 of my aunt's and a cousin and I get a text: Your wish for me may have come true dear" I'm drawing a blank FOR ALL OF 10 SECONDS. Then a loud sharp inhale and smile and look at the next text of 2 positive pregnancy tests...
WOOHOO so excited for her/them I can hardly stand it!!!!!!!!!!!!

I'm making myself stay calm and resist until after the wedding, then all bets are off and I'll be buying baby stuff and secretly sending it until the spring!! HEHE I'm so happy and I don't have to be the one to grow it:)

Plus I've always told her no you don't want kids, just A kid :):):)

Ozzy, Isis and Onyx. Ozzy is choosing Onyx to play with the most. Hmmmmmmm He likes the bigger ladies:)

So today I went to a girlfriends house.... several times one of the younger ones is crying for a mom. After a bit I hear Ari, crying and yelling my name, I kinda blow it off for a sec.(as she's showing me her bedroom and the nice new piece of furniture) Well I then go to see cuz he's not stopped yet and he's outside....
My poor little man is standing there frozen in place yelling/crying for me and saying "snake"
I Lean forward to look and yup at the bottom of the steps is a snake and I think Ari is in his way(it's about 1ft in front of him)... As I go to grab Ari(lift him directly up in the air) the snake(it's a little one) starts it's thing directly in his direction and he starts screaming!!! I FROZE PEOPLE! Well actually jumped back and froze.... but once it was next to him I could move again and then successfully lift him up and outta there. Then Ern calls her oldest little man to come and get it out of the driveway!!!!

People I FROZE, I stink, what kinda mom freezes in her child's full on terror?!?!?!??
I would not be surprised if he has a nightmare or two tonight..... DANG
