Preschool field trip to a farm. Can I tell you how hard it was
We saw this at another 4-H event at a historic state park in our area.

- Economical commuter car
- Ability to hold large volume of groceries
- Always stocked with wipes, Kleenex, books, toys, snacks, recyclable grocery bags, pens, paper and a potty
- Spotted with crumbs, half-eaten snacks, random drawings, empty water bottles, wrappers, animal hair, crayons, receipts, kid's jackets, stuffed animals and usually a bag or two of something on it's way to be transported somewhere else
- Fast and Sexy (those are his exact words)
- Ability to hold multiple sets of golf clubs
- Always stocked with gum
Don't get me wrong. I love my Mommy car. I wouldn't have it any other way. And despite what it may sound like, my husband does actually have the kids ride in his car, he just frisks them before getting in to ensure they are not carrying any substances he does not want to see fall in between the seat cracks.
I'm also guest posting today for Christie on A Lil' Welsh Rarebit, while she is enjoying the beach in Florida. But I'm not jealous or anything.
A happy birds day shout out to my good friend Lish, who hit the big 4-0 today!!! Welcome to the club girlfriend, 40 is the new 30! According to Oprah anyway...the foremost expert on everything, don't you know.

Although it's a daily struggle lately to maintain my patience, I'm still incredibly happy that she's finding her voice and growing into herself. It helps that she's SO darn cute, even when she's acting out. And on a dime, she turns it around and just oozes sweetness.
Seesa and Milly in "time out".
Yeah, I really taught them a lesson here, as you can see...

We spent some rare couple time this weekend. The kids spent a day and evening with their favorite babysitter, and we spent the day in the beautiful Napa Valley - even if it was raining - at a barrel tasting at Nickel and Nickel Winery with my sister and her husband. The winery was lovely, the lunch was delicious and the wine was heavenly.
The timing was perfect, as it's also the thirteenth anniversary of the date that my husband asked me to marry him. That evening after we got home, I spent a few hours organizing all the kid's clothes, then we watched a movie on the couch with some popcorn. Romantic, I know. Which is pretty much what we used to do before having kids, sans the organization of said kid's clothing of course. Ah, memories.
