Every Sunday is our "family day". It's the one day we all have off together and so we make a point of spending it together. Fortunately the area that we live in is loaded with family friendly activities so we are never at a loss for something fun to do. This past week we went to the park. Being on the tail end of spring, it was not too hot to enjoy the abundance of wild life.
We are surrounded by lakes and creeks here. It's fabulous. Even more fabulous is the lack of gators in said lakes...
They walked right up to you and asked for food...
"Demanded" might be a better word for it...
My favorite shot of the day. The storms here have been knocking down quite a few trees. They had a blast climbing all over this one.
This happens at my house quite frequently and yet, not nearly enough. Ladies and gentlemen, I present Kaylee on vocals and a special dance appearance by Michael.
Heck yes. How can you not love a family THIS awesome? ;-)
Every 13 years this Middle Tennessee Cicada comes up out of the ground in droves. We've been having a ton of fun observing these little creatures.
This little dude talked to us. The kids thought it was hilarious.
Kaylee: Mom, I don't like Care Bears anymore.
Kaylee: Cause they are fat.
Me: They are not fat, they're bears. They're supposed to be cute and chubby.
Kaylee: But they are fat!
Me: They're not fat, they're bears. Bears look like that.
Kaylee: THEY. ARE. FAT!
Me: They. are. BEARS!
Kaylee: *eyeroll and big sigh* (cause I'm obviously NOT getting it)
To the tune of "Happy Birthday": "Happy Mother's Day, Mo-om. Happy Mother's day, Mo-om. I just love you and wanna keep yooouuu... longer than you'll survive.... Happy Mother's Day, Mo-om." - Michael
Me: Kaylee, what are you doing?
Kaylee: You DON'T want to know.
Who Am I?
I'm just a single mom trying to survive it all in Nashville, Tennessee.
