A Bunch of Random Stuff

I have been falling behind on my blogging. I have a list of things I want to post about, but I have been a little busy. So I will now blog about a bunch of super cool/silly things that have no relation to each other, except that I think they are awesome.


Of my perfect life, clean house, and helpful children



(This is not my yard, but I thought the windmill and tulips were perfect for the theme.)

Holland Happenings was last weekend. It is a fun event that honors Oak Harbor's Dutch history every Spring. We always enjoy the parade. My favorite part of the parade are the marching bands. This year Nathan was in the parade with his French horn.

Way to be unique Nathan, you're so cute. I had to embarrass him by yelling his name and taking his picture. That's what moms do, isn't it?



Now that the weather is getting nicer, we sometimes go for walks after dinner. The other day Travis wanted to roller blade around the neighborhood in his PJ's with his blankie. I took his picture and told him I would be putting it on my blog.

"Good, I like being on your blog." was his answer.

Later he fell down and ripped up his knee. He was more upset about the big hole in his PJ's. Than his bloody knee.

Even later, a girl we have never seen before rode by on her bike.

"Now I'm embarrassed." Travis said.


Because I grow tulips in my yard waste pile. (The sad thing is they are growing better than the ones I planted on purpose!)

I love the tulips in your waste pile! They are beautiful. Maybe you can create more waste piles and the tulips will grow like crazy...

I have been absent from your blog for a while, and I am just laughing my butt off about all your stuff. I think the first picture is just classic -- and something I see around here daily. So now I'm feeling a little better. Thanks, Diane.
