We made it to church this morning, besides the rain that tried to get in our way. Have you ever tried to get three kids, four umbrellas and yourself into a church building? It’s really difficult. Not to mention the fact that I was wearing heels. But, we made it and there is truly no better way to start the morning. My heart is full today. I would love to blog more and tell you all about what’s been going on in my crazy household, but Ryan’s out grilling in the rain and the fort I built my kids just caved in. Gotta run, but I promise I’ll be a better blogger soon.

Montelucia Sunday Brunch

We celebrated my mom’s special day (mother’s day) one week early with a brunch at Montelucia. I brought some bubbles to bribe the kids with if they sat through brunch (it worked!). Colton ate his fair share of the buffet and Kelsey helped me pile on the capers with my breakfast (I can’t get enough of those things).

We celebrated Grandma too – she’s the ultimate mom. If not for her, this entire crazy crew wouldn’t be here. And on the right, those are comics my dad brought along. Since I can remember, he’s been cutting out comics from the Sunday paper that he finds funny (and relevant) and he gives them to us, or puts them up on his refrigerator. It’s nice to know some things never change.

The pool was just too tempting. We stuck our feet in and hung out awhile. We wading in the pool until I was too hot to move. Colton wanted to walk back and forth on the steps about a gazillion times. It made me think – I’m definitely booking a summer staycation by the pool. If I didn’t have my iPhone in my pocket, I might have just ‘fallen’ in the pool when no one was looking – it looked that relaxing.

I know I say this a lot, but jeez – those two up there are just heaven in my life. She loves him so much and it’s so amazing to watch their relationship grow. I couldn’t do life without these two making me laugh and smile every single day.

Look at Colton’s cheeks! This kid loves bubbles. He was doing this until he was red in the face. Then he started pouting because “the bubbles didn’t work anymore.” Also see: He spilled all the bubble solution on his shoes. It’s tough being two.

Happy Sunday!
