I must share!

So last night I was up until 2 am.  Lost in the blogging world unable to sleep jumping from site to site based on photos alone.  And if I opened a blog and it was to busy or not pretty I left.  I was really to exhausted to read I just wanted to look at pretty pictures.  You would think I would be sleeping after two days of being with a sick three year old who has been so cranky I have to remind myself not to get angry she is sick and also done with being in the house and watching movies.  Anyway back on the subject I came across inchmark and it may now be my favorite site to visit.  I already have plans to make two of the projects she has posted so don't be surprised if you see some of this coming your way.  I really think my blog travels have taken me to this site before I remember the layout.  But this time even though I was not in the mood to read I did this site is probably why I couldn't sleep.  I loved everything.  Here is the picture that took me there.  I think I love it even more because it looks like drawings Regan is currently doing of people.  I love kid art! I can't say enough I wish I was her!

No more excuses!

So it is pouring rain and windy as can be, Ayla is napping, and Regan is watching a movie so I have no excuses not to update my blog finally!  Although I probably could be cleaning something, doing laundry, making a grocery list but isn't that always the case?

It has been so long what to talk about there is so much so don't be surprised if in the next few days you see a few post dated items that make it look like I haven't skipped a beat! :)  Last week we were in San Diego and the weather was so nice.  NOT at all rainy or windy and it was so nice to enjoy some sunshine.  We also enjoyed just visiting we had no big plans just to hang out with Marisa, Keith, Sam and Elise and how nice it was.  We enjoyed some time at the park, sometime at the beach, and time at the house!

Here are just a few pics from our park time.  The girls rode their bikes, and now the question is do I tell the story of my poor supervising.  It just about killed me and my sister.  Well here it is, Sam was going back and forth about whether or not he was going to the park how he was getting to the park, bike or scooter or walk.  Anyway I was walking ahead with the girls and Elise was quite a bit faster then Regan so I was between the girls or back with Regan or ahead with Elise trying to keep them happy.  Well then the sidewalk started to go downhill and I was back with Regan and we were coming to a corner when Elise started to roll faster and faster she was losing control I was in panic!  I started running but I was too far.  Oh it killed me to watch her roll toward the street.  Luckily there were no cars coming but I could hear her calling for help and I coudn't get there. :(  Thank god she was able to make the turn and not go in the street but she had her first good bike crash.  Poor little thing she hit the grass so no injuries other then I am sure she was scared to death!

But that brave little girl got right back on her bike.  It took awhile to settle down but then she got on that bike went to the park and had fun.  I know she will never remember the day but she just might remember the feeling.  I hope she will continue to be brave and not let the falls in life ever bring her little go getter spirit down.  Sooooo sorry my little Elise!


Things I've Learned From Regan

  • Nothing is as fun as water!
  • ...David is HER daddy.
