backyard adventures...

just happy to be outside in the nice sun
baby swing in front of our apricot tree (I just liked the bright colors and pretty flowers)
draggin' her blankie around the yard
loves climbing fences and dog runs...
she dragged out the carseat herself and got her blankie and chilled
cute hands
better view of how big the hat is
too big of a hat on a cute little face!
we love to play ball
say cheese!
PB&J face mixed with dirt!

today was such a beautiful hot sunny day! we decided to go in our awesome backyard and pull devil weeds. The kids loved being out in the sun for hours. while I pricked and cut myself with super giant thorny trees the kids ran, played on the swing, and played in the dirt! They had so much fun getting stinky. I worked extra hard on trying to get our poor overgrown backyard ready for this spring and summer BBQs and just plain backyard adventureous fun! We spend hours sometimes all day back there swimming and running around. I brought Briggs out there for his first time. He loved just sittin' in his swing and laying in the warmth of the sun. I tried putting a hat on him, but his poor little head was too small to even fit a 0-3 month hat. (He didn't get the Metcalfe head like my other 2 kiddies) It was still super cute though. I couldn't help but take tons of pictures of him! I also got a few others of payt and lexi. we were so happy to have a beautiful spring day to take advantage of!

yes a bit late but here are some pics of our fun GREEN day! Yes my favorite holiday is st. patty's day so we really take it to the extreme. Green food all day long, and if it's not green we put food coloring in it. so green poopies for the next few days. ((TMI)too much information?) we really have had fun keeping up the green tradition sense we've been married. I know it was a weird adjustment for Brandon, but seriously who doesn't love the 17th of March!? We had our best friends over for dinner and then we had siggy come over too!& you can't come over to our house without playing games!!! we later had 2 of our nephews and one niece come over to play. thanks guys for eating green just for me!

my soap box...


okay so not to be totally depressing right now, i just needed to vent for a sec on bodies. well this last week i really worked hard at exercising and did great totally lost 1\2 inch on each of my arms, and almost a whole inch on my thighs. so ya that is totally rockin' dope, but then it comes down to the eating. blah!!! really that stinks i have such a bad strength when it comes to making good eating choices. oh man why does food have to be so fabulously delicous?! oh stink, it is super hard for me. i just wish that everything was bland and yucky, but NO it has to be scrumpcious and sugary. okay so really like i have said before "in my world everyone will eat rainbows and poop butterflies" then we won't stuggle with the food dilema. super!!! really i'm super in love with my step class and I LOVE TO EXERCISE but man it doesn't pay off when i eat like an elephant who loves food. so that comes back to body image. who's the one to decide what we should look like? i mean i'm all for being healthy. well darn it all, i'm stumped with my struggle. any ideas? now i'll step off my soap box and go back to being good ole happy me! holla ya'll!!!
