Yummy Milkshakes!

Friday we decided to venture out of our chips and dip comfort zone and try a new place. Well the food was not so good. It's sad when your kids hotdogs are better than your patty melt and burger. But have no fear their milkshakes more than made up for the sub-par food. 

Next time Byron says we should just go eat Pig and Pint around the corner then swing by and have a milkshake :) Our kids are so plain jane too when it comes to ice cream. Natalie wanted a "white" one, whip cream and one cherry. Harper wanted chocolate only.  But they both still ate a good bit of the Ginger Honey one Byron and I split.

They gave the girls hats to decorate. Natalie let me borrow hers. I still can't believe this little goober is going to be 3 in a few short weeks.
This is Nat's "freeze brain" picture. 

And not to be left out Harper & her chocolate shake. 


It's a Good Thing She's Cute

You typically say this about animals, pets more specifically, that tend to get into trouble a lot. But they are just so stinkin' cute you can't stay mad at them for long. Well, I say this about Harper a good bit lately. I don't even know how to describe her or her expressions but God knows I love every bit of it (most of the time).

She loves her big sis, I know she does deep down, but for the LOVE she can push her buttons. I guess that's a "sister thing" that I obviously don't understand. 

We all love Bogey but I think Mulligan might hold the top spot in Harper's heart. If she ever moves out of her crib, we may have to get him some stairs so he can sleep with her. I told her he snores really loud and she said "like my daddy does?"

This is her mimicking Byron and I doing squats. Don't you just love her "dumbbell?"

The bubble Apocalypse. I'm about 99% sure had a little help on this one but she claimed "it was all me momma." But those cheeks, and that grin, how could you do anything but throw a towel down and laugh????

Me and my minis attempting a very blurry selfie :)



Natalie started her summer camp right after Memorial Day. Their first full week was filled Vacation Bible School fun. These are some of the pictures they shared on the Facebook page. She loves this place so far and hopefully we will stay there for after school care in the Fall.


Road Trip

When Byron's away, the girls will play :) Or at least take a road trip up to Memphis to hang with the Clifford's. Byron and Flannigan had a little bachelor party weekend for their friend Dave and instead of staying home all weekend over the holiday I took the girls to see Dade & Willow, while Suzanne and I made good use of the blender.

Trying to get the 4 of them (6, 5, 2 & 1) to sit still and/or near each other was never going to happen. But I managed a few phone pics.

We kept it low key. A pool, sprinkler, Popsicles and lazy mornings in pjs.

Harper found Willows Cubs hat. Being avid Cardinal fans, we'll give her the benefit of the doubt just this one time. This is her attempt at a thumbs down, stinky face. Byron was less than impressed when he received this in a text.

Dade, being the boy that he is, had to go "adjust" the sprinkler just right until he managed to squirt all the girls.

And this is how the Bryant girls eat at a Mexican restaurant. Not really, the girls usually split a bean burrito plate but the guy messed up our order and brought 2. Oh well, we had plenty of leftovers to eat once we finally got home.

And this child, sometimes I have no words. It's like a 3-ring circus these days when we all pile into a bathroom. Every once in a while I still have to help Nat, no biggie, but I look around and this one is mooning us and yelling "look at my booty"! 


End of Year Luau

Natalie's teacher sent me a picture of the whole class on their last day Luau.

Last Day of Kindy

Natalie's first year of school is officially over. She popped right out of bed and got dressed so easily this morning, one might think she was looking forward to it :)

It's been a fun year, she's learned a ton and we couldn't have asked for a better teacher.
