I've always wanted to own my own bookstore/coffee shop, and this is what I want to call it. I actually hate cherries, except fresh Bing cherries. But honestly, a hot fudge sundae is not complete without a cherry. It's just that extra topping that makes it perfect. And that's what I want out of life...all the extras that God gives to make it "perfect" or at least a little closer to heavenly.

Fifth of July

Every year we go to Lloyd's cousin's house for an annual 4th of July party. We usually eat grilled hamburgers, hotdogs, homemade ice cream, and other yummy stuff. Then when it gets dark, the guys put on a fireworks show for us. It usually turns into "Let's see how many fires we can start in the woods?" or "Who got blown up by the fireworks?" But we love it! This year we decided to buy the boys a few of their own fireworks. So Lloyd bought a couple small things and sparklers of course. The boys loved it! Unfortunately, a storm came through and made things very uncomfortable so we left before the big fireworks show. It was a great night anyway!

Uh-oh! I didn't do it....(This is my favorite)

Bryce can't figure out how the chicken works!

Sparklers (sorry its a little blurry)

thank you for your message on my blog, I appreciate it and the prayers, well they are more than needed and appreciated.A mom praying for a mom is a gift and you are giving me a wonderful one. I pray today is a blessing and I have the ability today to see past the stress, lists, timelines, and impatience of a 2 year old and see my blessings. These times go so fast and I know somedays are not going to be the picture perfect world I wish for, but the temper that comes from this mouth and these hands, they will deminish, I will find my way.
thanks again, Have a wonderful day
Love your blog by the way, I stop in to visit everyone of Robbie's friends, she is one amazing chick and has some wonderful friends.
