Day 181

Today was a very busy day. I had to be at work by seven a.m. That's a tough thing for me, since I am NOT a morning person.

 We went to the park before 9 a.m. (impressive, I know.) When we arrived at the park, the sprinklers were on. Therefore, because it was such a warm morning, I told them to go run through them... and that is what we did.

 It was hilarious watching Asher crawl around the field. So cute.

Then, tonight, I had another babysitting job to head to... and I watched these two cuties. For the first time ever while babysitting, I actually struggled. The baby would not stop crying no matter what I did. Finally, I think he fell asleep out of pure exhaustion. Also, he didn't want to eat at all, but I'm thinking he is just not used to being bottle fed.

She has gorgeous eyes. Don't you think?

Sigh, after working 12+ hours today, I am so ready to go home and sleep. Hopefully the parents come home soon!

Happy Thursday!

Day 180

Day 176 - Day 179

Instead of separating the days like I normally do, I'm just going to put a lot of my camping photos in this one post.

Playing around with a knife

le water

I like the sun flare in this one

I like how Lyd is glowing... too bad her face is hidden :( 

It looks like Tiff is about to punch Maddie

Just chillin'/ cheesy smile. 

Playing some football

Lyd shared a tent with me... when I woke up one morning she looked like this... I love all the dirt on her face :) 

Messy little children

Savannah, what an inquisitive little girl. 

About to go paintballing. 

I thought the sign was cool

There were SO MANY BUGS

While playing some paintball, I shot Dave right in the neck. I felt SO bad :( (But he did shoot me in the leg twice)

Isaac holding M for the first time. I don't know if she really enjoyed it...

They loved the water! 

three little cuties

M was given a lot of attention


Just hanging out! 

Jonathan thought it was quite hilarious to make his mom think there was a bug in her hair.

These boys love rocks

They almost always had rocks with them. 

Grady has rocks in his hands too


So cute

Isaac purposely made cut himself out of the picture. 

Running... Attractive, I know. 

There was no entrance to this cabin.

Which edit do you like better? 1, 2, or 3?




The little baby burrito. 

She loved holding little Madilyn. 

Our last dinner while camping

Tiffany changing Eli's shoes was quite common throughout the trip. He continually stepped in water. 

My humble abode for the past couple of days. 

The group minus 3. I was taking the picture, and 2 had to leave earlier.

This is how he looked most of the time. 

On the way home he fell asleep right away and slept almost the whole time. 

Camping was fabulous. It felt so great to get away from everything. I didn't have to worry about the mundane things of life. I was able to leave my computer and phone, and not worry about it. Especially since I am taking an online class I feel like I'm in front of the computer too much. It was great to get away and have some great times with wonderful people, and to enjoy God's creation. It was great to change up the pace of life a little.

We talked, laughed, hiked, read, played games, kissed babies, ate food, played paintball, found a deers leg, we were never clean, and so much more.

I know there are a lot of pictures in this post, but when I had over 300 pictures from the weekend, it's impressive that I only put about 60 pictures up.

Furthermore, when I came home, I found this:

Supposedly my fish had been dead for a few days, but no one wanted to deal with it. So they left it up to me. 

It smelled really bad. Gross. 

Poor little fishy. He was a a good little guy. Although, I'm somewhat thankful he finally died. I was tired of cleaning his bowl every week.
