Day 180 ~ Black and Yellow, Black and Yellow

(I bet you are singing that song now, I know I am)
Lots of these little guys out and about today.
Thanks for taking a peek!

Day 179 ~ Last Day of School

School's out for summer!
Let's celebrate with some IceCaps for the parents, And Subs for the kids last school lunch.
Okay, so it's not the biggest way to celebrate. But hey, at least we didn't take our excitement as far as the streaker did! Yes, you read that correctly. We have a streaker in town. For a small town we seem to have a lot craziness going on around here lately.
The news about the 'on the loose snake', and now nakedness.
Brace yourselves for the next crazy Arthur story! I think it's going to be an interesting summer.

Day 176 ~ That's A Little Unnerving!

This is the note that came home from school today.
The problem is...we live in a small town and most of us had already heard about this last week.
Maybe a call to the Python Hunters is in order, LMAO!
Thanks for taking a peek!

Day 175 ~ Note To Self...

While dicing up jalapeƱo's, DO NOT rub your itchy eye!
Sadly enough, this is not the first time I have done this.
I know, some people just never learn.
Not the greatest picture but, you get the idea. (I'm not the sharpest tool in the shed)

Day 173 ~ Hotdogs For A Good Cause

When you are 4, does there have to be a reason to want a Hot dog?
I took the twins down to the Royal Bank today for the charity BBQ to raise money for cancer. For $5.00 you got a hot dog, bag of chips and a bottle of water.
It's a small price to pay for the big smiles it brought to their faces!
Thanks for taking a peek!

Day 172 ~ Another Play Date

Today we all gathered at Becky's house and let the kids run wild!
They had a great time. Thanks so much Becky.
Did you know it's next to impossible to get 16 kids ages 1-4 to pose together for a photo.
Literally 2 seconds after this was taken they scattered! lol
Thanks for taking a peek!

Ask me about my

Traffic was insane trying to leave Niagara Falls last night. We were an hour just in the parking lot. Here are the boys before we even left the parking lot.
It was after midnight so I didn't even cheat here.

Day 166 ~ Walking The Line!

We headed down to Niagara Falls today to watch the tightrope walking stuntman.
Today was the big day for Nik Wallenda!
This will be the first time anyone has attempted to walk on a tightrope over the actual waterfall since 1859 the acrobat Charles Blondin crossed the gorge on a tightrope, but his stunt was downstream from the actual waterfall.
The big question is will he stay tethered? And yes he did.
Did anyone happen to see my boys on the Channel 4 news? The news anchor interviewed them. She also asked Devon and I, "if Nik had decided to go untethered, would we still have brought the kids down to watch?" Hmm, tricky question really. My response, "If Nik is confidant enough to let his 2 children watch, then I'm OK with mine watching". (hope that doesn't make me a bad parent)
Here he is just feet away from finishing!
So glad we made the trip down to watch. How many times will you ever see something like that?

Thanks for taking a peek!

Day 165 ~ Sprinkles = Smiles!

Our play date was sadly cancelled today. How do you make up for that?
You get the kids sprinkle doughnuts instead of the usual Tim Bits and go play at the park.
It was all smiles and fun!

Day 164 ~ Does He Look Ferocious?

I don't know about ferocious, but he sure does look cozy.
We saw this cutie in someones front window while out for a walk this morning. Basking in the sun on a ledge in between the couch and window.

Day 163 ~ Obsession?

Yes, I admit I have a problem!
That's the first step right?
Yesterday was the Oreo ice cream, today I can't choose between the Original, Double Stuffed, Golden, or Mini. At least none of these are stolen!
Thanks for taking a peek!

Day 162 ~ You Snooze...You Lose!

This Oreo ice cream sandwich has been sitting in the freezer for a week now!
I bought a 4 pack (one for each of us) and Devon left for baseball and never had his. I reminded him a couple of times over the last week that his was still in the freezer (that's fair, right?). Well, the way I see it is if it's still there after a week, it's free for the taking!
A stolen Oreo ice cream sandwich really does taste better! Thanks Hun!
Thanks for taking a peek!

Day 161 ~ Back Home

Let the unpacking and laundry begin.
Can't wait to go back again!
This photo was taken yesterday. The Boomerang at night with the reflection, I had to share this one.
Thanks for taking a peek!

Day 160 ~ Day 2, Tired but still going!

Even the kids were wiped out by the end of the day!

Which by the way, I climbed like a spider monkey!
I rocked that rock wall!

Day 159 ~ Darien Lake

Let the fun begin. Three days of rides, water park, campfires, shopping, and drinking beer that is cheaper than water! Here's Devon and Brad chillin' with some nice cold beer!
God Bless America!

Day 154 ~ Am I Cheating?

It's no secret, I love Baileys in my weekend coffee's. However, recently a friend introduced me to Dooley's. If you haven't tried it yet, you really should.
*hangs head in shame*
I just have this strong feeling of guilt overwhelming me with every sip. For so long it has been me and my Bailey's, and now I have a new love.
I think the only fair thing to do is drink two cups of coffee each morning. One with my first love Bailey's, and one with my new love Dooley's.
I know, I know, it's going to be a sacrifice on my part. I'm willing to take one for the team.
Thanks for taking a peek!

Day 153 ~ Movie Night

And what goes hand in hand with a movie?
You guessed it, Popcorn!
Thanks for taking a peek!

Day 152 ~ Graffiti

Today was a rainy and cold day. Feeling no inspiration at all.
So, today's photo is actually from MoFo's Camera Club photo walk earlier in May.
Graffiti under the bridge.
I get that graffiti is wrong and illegal...but, let's not over look the obvious here. There are some talented delinquents around.
Thanks for taking a peek!

Day 151 ~ Clematis

Joanne's flower now lives on in my back yard. Before Frank moved he offered me his late wifes favorite garden flower. Devon and My brother-in-law got to work and dug it up and replanted it for me.
It looked a little sad last year after being moved, which worried me a bit.  I'm more than happy to report it is now thriving and blooming nicely!
