this was just one of those mornings...!

Maddux LOVES to play in the pantry. He loves to pull things out and put them back on the shelves. He loves to dig deep into a box of cereal and grab handfuls to eat at a time. He loves to make a mess...and today was NO exception.

So, he tried to pick up a brand new- full (48oz) bottle of vegetable oil, which was obviously too heavy for him. When it slipped, it fell on the tile, lid popped open and a massively thick layer of gooey oil spilled everywhere. Yes, I believe that about 35 oz of this bottle was all over my tile. Where in the world do you even start with something like that? After a whole roll of paper towels and a LOT of Dawn, I think I got it all up. I haven't seen a mess like this since my sophomore year of college when my roomies and I found a Costco size jug of liquid laundry detergent had fallen and cracked, spilling all over our linolium floors.
aaahh....the memories! :)
Now I have a large amount of a box of Raisin Bran strewn all over my rug.

I will be investing in some of these today :)
5:18 pm...
5:20pm...This lock is worth the full $12.99!

Today at Chik-fil-a, Dads got a free milkshake and since they have the BEST oreo shakes in the world, we had to take advantage! Maddux loved sharing with Daddy and he loved the play area even more!

Cool Tricks!

Maddux has refused to do this anytime anyone is around, but we caught it on tape! Have I mentioned that I LOVE this guy??


FINALLY!! We have been in our house for two and a half years and we have had nothing but dirt and rock in our side yard. It's a really small space but it feels SO good to have something good looking back there finally! Special thanks to Mom & Dad and Lauren & TJ for all their sacrificed Saturdays and sweat helping us out! We appreciate it soooooo much!

Rocky Point

The whole fam took a trip down to Rocky Point this weekend. Mom and Dad rented an amazing beach house and Drew and I had a room with the most amazing view right out to the beach. This really had potential for being the most amazing vacation ever.

But... we arrived midday Thursday and by Friday morning I was mega sick and spent the entire day in my bed. Vacation went on without me and everyone seemed to have a great time. Saturday morning I woke up weak, but feeling SO much better. Sadly though, Drew had caught my crud. He then spent ALL day Saturday laying in bed watching the beach out the window. By late Saturday night we were both feeling pretty good and were determined that the three of us were going to wake up early and get as much fun in the sun in before we headed back to Phoenix. WRONG- Maddux woke up at 1am projectile vomiting. Yes- all over me. I changed three times and was thrown up all over three times. Anyone jealous yet? We were up for a couple of hours watching The Wiggles and calming the poor little guy down before all three of us finally fell asleep.

We did get a couple of hours of good beach time in on Sunday, which is when 99% of these pics were taken. I hate to sound like I'm complaining because even with the nastiness we had, it was an awesome vacation. Everyone had fun and I can't wait to go back!

(side note: 12 of us in one beach house, but Drew, Maddux and I were the only ones who got sick. *Phew*)

The house...
Maddux loved the sand. It was the worlds biggest playground for him. The waves really freaked him out. But at low tide, he loved splashing around in the shallow pools of water!
