Hershey Park Fun

After all the stress the past couple of weeks I decided to take the boys and their best friend to Hershey Park for some fun. I left the little one with a sitter and away we went!is it so wrong that I want to take a gigantic bite out of him ;)
our first coaster...the comet

the boys and some friends who went to0. From l to r..Brogan, Mathew, William, Luke and Austin

Brogan, Austin and their best friend Luke

Austin and Mom on the bumper cars

Me and my best friends Amy and Jen

and the picture below is my absolute favorite. Jen and I were in front of Brogan and her son Brandon. I held the camera over my shoulder and right as we went down the first huge drop I snapped this photo. I almost dropped the darn thing (it was attached around my neck) I am soooo amazed at the shot that came out. I love the look on Brandon's face....pure terror!!!

it was a great day!

Ean turns 2

I cant believe my little guy is 2 already. Where does the time go? He had a great time at his party and as you can tell he totally loved his new Elmo Computer from Grandma.He wasn't to sure about the talking Elmo
and the cake was delicious.

all in all it was a great day......just a little sad at how fast he is growing up.

I am devstated and pissed off!

Well I think the title says it all.....here is what has been happening in my world. The wonderful USPS has lost the 9POUND!!!!! box that had all 13 bags in it. The man needed it by Wednesday and it never came......I mailed it out on the 5th of September. Seems a young man at the post office decided to play God and changed my shipping from Priority to Parcel after I had paid and left. I did put insurance on it...but they cant track it with just the insurance UNTIL it shows up and someone signs for it. WHAT A FREAKIN!!! NIGHTMARE!!!!! I am soooo disappointed and so upset....I spent all Wednesday bawling my eyes out. At this point I am just hoping that they show up. I feel awful for Bud (he has been amazing about this and says he will still use the bags at a later date) and I feel like a failure. It is so frustrating to work so hard on something and then it just disappears. Lets just pray that they DO SHOW UP at some point!

ps: talked to the "post master" today and the young gentleman was fired. Seems this was not the first time he has tampered with the mail.

I'm Baaaaccckkk!!

I cannot believe it has been so long since I blogged. In my defense I have been super busy. Here's what I've been up to....

I went down to Elkin, Nc to visit my mama. She lives WAY out in the country and it is beautiful, this is a pic of the old barn that is out behind her house.
little Ean running after the dog down the dirt lane. I love this picture!

all the boys running back up

He had so much fun with the dogs and the water hose

The boys got to help Grandma pick tomatoes

Even the little man got to help

Then we went to Mt.Airy where Andy Griffith was filmed. The boys loved Opie's Candy Shop

We saw Sheriff Andy drive by

and the town drunk was still there

they had a blast at the malt shop

me and the boys and my momma

Daryl turned 38 so we gave him a nice dinner out!

I ees mucho hombre'

We then went to Myrtle Beach and stayed at Ocean Lakes. It took me days to get all the sand off of him.

he turned into a little fish

we went to Patriots Point Landing in Charleston, SC. I loved Charleston so beautiful!

my proud soldiers

we ate at Bubba Gump's Shrimp which was a huge hit as we are all Forrest Gump fans.
me and my hubby and yes he is just as much a teddy bear in person as he looks....geesh I love that man!

and Ean has learned how to say "cheese" ain't he a cutie

So that's some of things I've been doing. Tomorrow I will post about the 17 bags I've made in the past 2 weeks. I will put up pics of them all.
