Sometimes you just have to spoil your love!

One more day of babysitting ... a couple parents need me to babysit tomorrow, so I once again helped them out of a jam!  And I am okay with it, it is only ONE MORE DAY.  AND, I kinda balanced the universe today with our summer blow out party. 

The kids were great.  We had a silly string fight and blew up a slide and put it next to the pool with dish soap!  lol  It eventually found it's way in the pool.  Oh, the balancing the universe?  Well, the blowout was officially over at 5 pm.  At 4:35 pm, 5 kids polished off THREE boxes of Slush Puppy ice pops.  And then at 4:50 pm they got Moose Tracks ice cream or Strawberry ice cream.    

My kids LOVE me!

And then there is this amazing dinner for my love ....

Clams, Mussels and Crab legs ... sweet corn and new potatoes .. really good olive oil, white wine
and fresh herbs, that is how you spoil my husband!

Great Nephew - Camdyn Parker

Just when I thought I was zapped from kids and company, my great nephew came to visit with my sister for a few days this week.  Shel (my sister) came up from Florida and we chased a thirteen month old around the house like a couple newly licensed babysitters fresh out of a Red Cross class.

She left this morning, but not before I stole a few moments with her, Camdyn and my camera at the family cookout.  Hope you enjoy the pictures as much as I enjoyed taking them!

Camdyn Parker Havens - my great nephew

Even though my sister doesn't really like to pose for pictures,
you could see how easy this precious baby made it for her!

Vandy stuck Cam right in the middle of our flower beds, and I didn't freak!  lol

I think they stink too Cam!

How can you not giggle at this picture?
P.S.  I get to start crafting Tuesday ladies!  The kids go back to school Wednesday!!!  I am soooooooo excited.  I love my kids, but entertaining kids all summer long has zapped me this year.  Ahhhhhhh Tuesday.
