The Big Picture Post

I'm feeling a bit scattered.....busy-busy as my nana would say. She would also say that things were nice-nice.....and everybody needs to eat a handful of dirt in their life (or something like that). There was wisdom in her little sayings.

The warm weather is taking a long time to come visit our north eastern town. As G-man reminds me...it's early. It's only the beginning of June. The only problem is we have such a short summer. I was hoping spring and summer would become one.....and I have plans.....water plans....eating plans....playing plans. Typical summer plans that we are patiently waiting to put into action.

While writing this post, I heard a thud. Ross was upstairs taking a shower...G-man rushed to see what had happened. Apparently Ross was practicing his yoga poses while in the shower.

I'm so thankful for unexpected laughs from unexpected situations. Ross performing yoga in the shower....unexpected
Here are some Memorial weekend photos I forgot to post.....

Seriously jealous of your ability to wear plaid on the lower half of your body.

I Love that Ross!!! So funny!

Man, I wish my kids had that backyard of yours!!

Those pics were pre-windy day, right? The table was still in tact or did you fix it already?

Loved all your pics!

Tara said...

Love all the pictures with family. BTW, move to NC and you get 90 degree temps. in May/June plus humidity and summer lasts forever. Looks like the weather was nice for Memorial Day though.

How?!!! IN!!! the World??? Do you do Yoga???? in the Shower?????!!!!
I am so curious about this one.
How old are the twins? did they just celebrate a birthday?

Amber said...

Love the pictures!

And love your shorts. C.O.V.E.T.I.N.G. (which I know is bad, but pretty sure it is excusable when it has to do with plaid shorts.)

And yoga in the shower? Nice.

Alicia said...

LOL about the yoga!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Okay....I seriously heart your yard and your deck!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Looks like the boys had a good birthday...I haven't seen some of those folks in a long time. They look so different. You'll have to tell me all about it....Love ya

Yoga, falling down in the shower, I think I just peed my pants. Thanks for the visual. What a hoot and leave it to Ross, just leave it to Ross. It looks like he's practicing a yoga pose on G-man in that picture. I love the look on the one's face (so yeah, I still can't tell them apart) while he's looking at the food. I have that very same look much of the time!

I love those shorts too. You are SO cute and fun! I want to be fun like you!

What a fun weekend! I hope the warm weather comes to you soon Ms. Sunshine!

I hear you about the long winters and cool springs. I grew up in Kansas where a nice warm spring starts March 1. Then starting in June you get four months of hot summer. I think that is how God intended it. It was 50 today here in Ohio. I do comfort myself though, because I went to school in New England for awhile and I am glad I didn't end up there because I think it is even worse than here. brrrrr.

Pam said...

Too funny about yoga in the shower!
If you lived in Georgia you could have nice warm summers. Of course, I love heat, so I want to live in Florida and have year round warm weather!

Darcie said...

That looked like one fun, family filled Memorial weekend. I noticed the table and umbrella too...hope you were able to find a new one.

I was laughing too with the thought of doing yoga in the shower...was it the tree pose that did him in? LOL!

Joyeful said...

I'll have to try that sometime! Yoga in the shower sounds...interesting?! lol. Was it the twin's b-day? Love how half is chocolate and half is vanilla frosting!

Pilar said...

Love the photos! Your boys are so cute!

Warm weather will be there before you know it.

StacyB said...

Kudos to you for being patient enough for all those photos to load! A girl after my own heart.

I love all the pictures. It is always "nice-nice," to see your beautiful family.

Sweet Serendipity said...

Looks like great fun!
I hope you get some lovely warm weather soon!

Sarah said...

Delighted to meet you! Your profile grabbed my attention and I just had to stop by. I'm a Jesus lovin' homeschoolin' mama of two boys as well. Nice to meet you and catch a peak at your life. I hope to get to know you even more.

Hugs from this missionary mommy,
Sarah Dawn

Oh, what to say? Yoga in the shower! Why not? You must have been laughing pretty hard at that one!

Your yard, that open space of green, is the color of my envious, jealous eyes!

So, how long are summers there? Ours here in AZ, May through October (it's still hot at Halloween!). Yuck!
