That's how my day started. And it has not gotten better--well, the "throw up" part seems to be better, but the 5 loads of laundry, cleaning up 2 major spills (made by myself, not my children!), and picking up rooms full of toys has not ceased!
The joys of motherhood!

And my other one--dressed up as "Tony Hawk"--just kidding! He was loving the skateboard till he went down a hill on it and wiped out. But, I'll give him this--he didn't even cry!!
And--one of the coolest places in OKC--and it's totally free--the sprayground! We have had so much fun at this place ever since a friend told me about it--it even has a big swimming pool with a diving board and lifeguards--for FREE!! I'm all about anything for free...and this is the best! As you can see--even my 21 and 15 year old cousins got in on the fun! (And, I can't leave out my 17 year old brother--he came the next day and played with us!)
These are some fun summer days.....
Here's Dustin in the front: Jodee trying to keep the hat on her head:
And Dylan, who fell asleep about 30 minutes into the ride--and slept like this for the rest of the time:Too funny! I guess he was comfortable...who knows!

Here is Dylan---WANTED!! He wouldn't make a mean face--I thought that was sweet!And here's our picture--me and my little cowboy!Sitting on "Diva":
Playing the harmonica around the campfire...And, check out this concentration!!!Thanks to my good friends for helping me out with pictures--since I left my camera at home! They turned out great!
Josh and Jodee went to a movie..and get this-she could choose from Kit Kittredge (an American Girl movie), or Speed Racer. What did she choose? SPEED RACER! So funny! But they enjoyed it--and had a nice date night!
And, ironically, Dustin went to see Speed Racer in Austin the same night!! I'm sure he and Micah loved it too!

Here is the fam waiting for the parade to start: (notice how happy they are here...an hour and a half later they were sweaty and miserable and wanting to go home...so we did! It was fun though.)
This is at 10 pm, after a day full of eating, outside games, swimming, trampoline jumping, and running around with my whole family:
They were worn out!! The picture below is Dustin holding a sparkler--not sure if you can actually see him or not, but he's there! Dylan was wiped out and in bed by this time, and Jodee just watched (I think she was about to fall asleep too!). We had a great day with my family. We celebrated all of the summer birthdays (adult birthdays), there are 6 in all, and had "Family Olympics", complete with awards and all. It was SO much fun!
I have more pics to post from the weekend, but I'll leave you with that for now. Oh, and think about me this week, my oldest baby is in Texas without me!!! Dustin is spending the week with his cousin Micah this week--and they are having FUN! I miss him!

Here's Dylan with his cake....he wanted a Kung Fu Panda party, even though we haven't seen the movie yet, and this was as close to "kung fu panda" as I could get---but at least he's happy! (And, yes, that's a tattoo on my son's chest, in case you were wondering!)And, of course, a pic with Chuck E. Cheese!Here are the kids with their masks on--too funny!And after spending 2 1/2 hours in Chuck E. Cheese with his grandma, great grandma, uncle, great aunt and uncle, and grandpa opening really great presents (thanks everyone!), and eating some pizza, we still had one big present waiting in the car:
He had a great birthday--and is already asking, "When do I turn 5?"... my baby is too big!
