First Pinic of the season

Thursday the little boy's and I decided to make the long trek to the park (the lions park which is a total of a half block plus a lawn away). I packed a little lunch for Blazer a blanket and Knox's food, and away we went.

It did not go over as expected. Blaze did not get why we were eating outside and why we would go to the park to eat instead of just play. I guess it could be a confusing concept. Anyway he played while eating and had a grand time. Knox and Foxx loved it as well. Knox loves the baby swing. He gets so excited when we push him in it. And Foxx is always well loved by all the kid's at the park.

Blaze welcomes Summer

Finally we are feeling a little like Summer might come. We are probley over confident cause really we just cannot have another snow storm (knock on wood). Well to welcome the one nice day in a row we mowed the lawn. The kid's picked up sticks, Well Paris and Blaze picked up sticks, Brody picked up some and then ended up sitting out cause he "hurt his back".
Anyway they poo'ed out and Blaze was still hard at work (he started 2 min. before the other kid's quit). So he picked up a big stick and said "Look Mommy, It's so heavy"
Hehe notice he's only in his Undies. This is a sure sign that summer is approaching at the Wolsey's because during summer Pants are optional.
Also with no pants Blaze had a easier time taking care of his man itches.
One more sure sign of summer............... The dirt/snot covered face. It's a constant in the wolsey summers.
And in the summer Blaze does anything to not come inside, so much so that he find's things outside to eat. He is in heaven when the garden start's growing and he can freely go pick pea's and corn and eat them dirty out of the garden.
But till then i guess stick's will have to do
So the Wolsey's/Blaze welcome summer, But then again who are we kidding Blaze always has a dirty/snotty face, Last snow storm he was out in just is undies eating the snow, But we never pick up sticks in the winter, so maybe that's the sure sign of summer at our house.
So long story short, happy first nice day in a row!

Brad's new love...............

Brad loves icecream.
When we first got married one of our first deep discussion's was on ice cream and what the appropriate proportion size is. In the Wolsey household i guess if you had a bowl of ice cream it meant a heaping cereal bowl of ice cream. In the Gibb household if you had a bowl of ice cream you had a scoop in a small bowl. Either way is not bad it's just different (my way is cheaper) I really don't know how Falene kept ice cream in the house with 4 boy's (well if they all eat as much Ice cream as Brad), Brad alone will got through a gallon in a week. But I digress, So we decided early on in our marriage that we would not let the proportion size of ice cream lead us down the path to divorce. So it's very common in our house to say.............
"Does anyone want ice cream?"
Everyone Say's "Yes"
That is instantly followed by "Gibb Portion or Wolsey Portion?"
It's even caught on at my Mom and Dad's house, If we have ice cream they will always ask Brad if he wants a Gibb Portion or Wolsey Portion.
Anyway so We went down to Great fall's and I found the best surprise for my ice cream loving Man.
I think he's in love! I got him Dr. Pepper, I got the kid's Root beer. Brad has had Ice cream 2 times. 3 of the kid's had ice cream 2 times. The Dr. Pepper has twice as much missing. Hmmm I pointed this out to Brad. He just smiled.
Oh and this is not his full "Wolsey Portion" This was just his second bowl of icecream so he only took half a bowl.

What the Wolsey's do for fun.

Ok not all the Wolsey's just the kid Wolsey's.
Brad Brought them goggles from his trip to Az. So today after school B asked if they could get on there swimming suits and try out there new goggles in the tub. Why not i said. Then I realized why not. The Bathroom was soaking wet but they had such a fun time.
Ok they kinda look Special But again they had a blast.
B look's like a "coke bottle glasses" kind of a kid in this one
Blaze was not going to miss out
He did later end up in the back yard with nothing but his goggles on. Hmmmm Welcome to summer at the Wolsey's
We are a bunch on nudest's

Scoutty came to visit with her Mom today.

Mothers Day weekend

Brad left me on Thursday, He packed up gave me a kiss on the way out the door and promised he'd be back. I questioned it. I really did, after all he was heading down to AZ. To golf with his Dad for an entire weekend with no girls (as in me) to nag him. I really questioned if he would return to me.
Alas he did, Sunday evening just in the nick of time before it got the crazy glazed look in my eye's. It was so good to have him home. We all missed him and he claims he missed us (I don't think he had time to miss us).
So Brad's super weekend (that he claims is going to be an annual thing) consisted of...................
1. 90 Holes of Golf!
Yep that's right in avg. 95 sometimes up to 102 temp.
That's over 600 swings min. (Brad said that maybe makes them sound like bad golfers so i should lower the number of swings)
2 courses per day
Average cost per. game 15-18$ each including the cart. Brad said the best one carried the club's to the cart and at the end of the game they washed them all of with soap and water for them. Yep cost them a Whooping $15 for that course.
2. diamond Backs Game
Which they only lasted till the 7th and Brad got sick and had to go home, were he preceded to puke his guts out and go to bed. But that did not stop him, He was up at 5:30 the next day ready to do it again.
3. minimal shopping
just enough to not come home empty handed to the kid's and to get me my necco's
His most favorite part i think was finding a brand new Friend that invited himself to join there game in the AM then proceeded to decided it was a good idea to meet them at the next course. Brad said he swore like a sailor and Smoked a huge stogies the entire day but they had to be polite, Brad and Scott are to nice. Blahhhhh
He had so much fun and as soon as he walked in he started talking about next years trip, I said for me it was like giving birth to let him go, He needed to give me time and I would forget the pain. And maybe I'll let him go again.
For the Big kid's it was a super super long weekend. They got invited by my sainted sister to go up there for the weekend. We met Wednesday and away they went. They loved every min. of it. I guess B's favorite part was Uncle Ry telling hilarious stories about when he was young. Brody try ed to repeat them to his friends today and they did not find the same humor in it as B did. He needs to find his story telling knack.
Paris had a lovely time as well until the dreaded Bed incident. She got stuck under the bed and was like a caged animal when she woke up and had no idea how to get out. Between laughing hysterics by missy i think i caught most of the story and what a funny one it was.
They love being at Auntie Missy's It's like a second (they wish it was there first) home to them. Ryan and Missy are so good to them, they are lucky to have them as a auntie and Uncle.
My weekend well it was me with my thrown out back and the 2 little boy's. I've got to say I love my husband and I'm so glad he's around cause boy does it get boring at night when the boy's are in bed and It's just me, Plus i hate Hate sleeping alone. The boy's and I did fine. Blaze found a new passion, It's the movie Car's. he adores it and watched it a thousand times.
We were lucky enough to get to go to Mom's Saturday for a mothers day Lunch with Mom, Grandma and Grandpa Hough and Grandma Gibb. Mom put on a lovely spread (as always). It was such a nice time and we really enjoyed it.
Sunday I did not get to church on time but i was not that late either. I would have been on time but i for got a bottle. and had to run home and then i forgot a blanket and had to run home. But we were not to late. Blaze decided it was better to go join the family in front of us for church. I think he missed the big kid's so he joined a family who had big kid's and sat up with them for church.
I made a fantastic mothers day dinner for myself with the kids help. I was lucky to get the kid's help considering Brody informed me when they got home that since he does so much for me every other day of the year he was going to take Mothers day off. I'm such a lucky Mom.
It was a great weekend, See I'm already starting to forget not having Brad here and having to change every diaper, and the feeling of bed time coming around and i could not quit I had to put them to bed instead of handing them off to my Patient husband. Oh how I love him.

I've lost it

My sense of humor that is. It went away a few month's ago and I cannot seem to find it anywhere. Thing's are not as funny as they use to be.
Maybe one day I'll get it back, Maybe one day I'll think the things that make me crazy are funny again. Or maybe nothing funny has happened to or around me for a few months.
I hope it resurfaces again soon. I'm a bitter old lady without it.
