Living Planet Aquarium

Today Bailey had a field trip for school to the Aquarium. I was delighted that she asked me to go with her. (She is in the stage where mom is embarrassing.)

Petting the Starfish
Petting the pencil urchins
Watching the rays

There was lots and lots of jelly fish
there was a lamp that changed colors that was shining on the jelly fish so they could be seen

She loved the rays the best
She was a little nervous about touching the barb but when I told her that they wouldn't hurt her she felt better Ü
Some cool sea stars
Some tiger fish
Sorry that this picture is so blurry but the octopus likes it darkLovin' the rays again Ü

Last time I looked at a calendar I swear that it said that it was APRIL 7, not DECEMBER 7! So if it is April why is there all this snow?!?!

The sad look from my back door...we just used this BBQ last weekend...
This is what I see when I look out my front sad...I know that it will be good for the water supply but I think that we have had our share of winter snow...I think that it is past time for us to have summer!

Laundry day

Oh the joys of motherhood! Laundry is a never ending cycle, especially when you have two children who get one drop of anything on thier shirt and they have to IMMEDIATLY change their clothes! You may look at these piles of laundry and think oh that is about two weeks worth of laundry...WRONG! That is one week...and I haven't even folded the lovely socks yet...did I mention that this is only the kids clothes?? Don't get me wrong I love being a mother more than anything but 16 shirts in one week? Give me a break!

These are Owens p.j.s...I didn't even bother to count but I am sure that there is more than a weeks worth in there Ü
Owen had 16 shirts in his pile...
Morgan only had a mere 12 shirts in her pile Ü

I have just started implementing a chore chart was hard to enforce chores while we were building our hopefully the chores will help the kids know how much work really goes into running a house Ü

For Sale

Well looks like we are going to sell our house...we are very sad about this but with the way the economy is going things are just getting really tight...

If anyone knows someone who is interested have them give us a call...we want someone who will love this house as much as we do...the rest of the fence will be finished on Thursday.
