Sunshine Sunday - my family

Baden when to my sisters house to play the other day.  He claimed he needed to do #2, so she patiently sat on the ground waiting for him to do his business.  She's almost 9 months pregnant and she sat there having fun with him for well over a half an hour.  Finally he did what he set out to do and normal life continued :)  She's always so good to my kids.

We do girls' night out once a week and my dad usually gets pulled into it.  After raising four girls, he fits in just fine on a girls' night.  We always go to Target and I showed my dad that they have that dip 'n dot ice cream there. We decided we both needed one and then decided it would melt if we didn't take action.  So we got some spoons from the deli area and ate it as we shopped.  Ice cream + Target + my dad?  That's definite fun.

My mother-in-law packed these awesome bags for the boys.  There's one to open for each state we drive through.  Talk about thoughtful :)  She rocks.

I'm so grateful to be surrounded by such fun, kind, thoughtful family members.

I'm also thankful to be able to go on a little trip with my boys.  Thank you SO much for all your helpful suggestions yesterday.  You guys are the best!

My sister Cassie will be taking over the blog this week, but I'll be back soon!  Thanks for reading.


  1. Dippin Dots at Target? Get out. That is so stinking cool. LOVE that your dad goes with you. That is awesome. I can't wait to hear about your trip. I hope you are having a blast!

  2. Your Mother in Law's idea is great! I am going to do that for my upcoming trip in April. Well, no kids, but I do get bored on road trips (not easy in India!)

  3. Have a wonderful time. There is something about family holidays when the kids are young. Special memories are made, rules are relaxed and the routine forgotten for a time. Enjoy!!

  4. Family is great, isn't it? I love that your dad will go to Target with you! I don't think I've ever set foot in a target with my dad. My husband will go occasionally, but not very often! :) We go to lowes and home depot instead. :) I hope you guys are having tons of fun on your trip! I can't wait to hear about it!

  5. Your dad is SO cool. And those bags for the boys look like so much fun. I hope you have a great trip.

  6. I am so glad your son thinks toilet paper rolls can be turned into such awesome things! :)

    Have a safe & fun trip!
