One of Kaden's potty rewards is a trip to Jungle Joe's. He earned his trip last night and when we told him that we could go to Jungle Joe's tomorrow, it was like we told him Christmas had come early. He talked about it all night. Down to the details. When I was tucking him in to bed last night he told me that we would take 'mama's car' and that we would go and bounce, he would ride the 'lion king' first and then he would go slide and bounce and ride the 'lion king' again. Then he woke up at seven am ready to go. He told us all the steps again. I made breakfast and told him that after breakfast we would go. He took two bites and said,"KK done! YAYAY!!"            
So we went, and he had fun. He told me all the way home. And you can't see here, but he has some rockin' spiderman socks on.

The weather here has been so hot and humid. Its doing strange things to my hair. I've been mostly wearing it up but the humidity makes the baby hairs stand straight out.     
It is,however, making my garden very happy. My rose bush had doubled in size and my funny little daisys are just blooming their heads off.

Tomorrow is a busy day. I have some training at work early on but then one of my favorite friends and I are throwing a shower for another of my favorite friends. It's just for close friends and its going to be at the Wine Loft which is one of my favorite places. I'm pretty excited!

             Have you ever come across something that just fit your life so perfectly at that it felt like it was there just for you?
Consider the ravens, for they neither sow nor reap, which have neither store house nor barn; and God feeds them. Of how much more value are you than the birds? And which of you by worrying can add one cubit to his stature? If you then are not able to do the least, why are you anxious about the rest? luke 12:22-26
I came across this very randomley as I was walking out the door this morning. I'm not sure what a cubit is, but I know how much worrying gets done in this household, so I guess if worrying DID get you one, I would know it. (yes, I know. CRAZY run on sentence.) Especially since it seems to make you taller, if I'm taking the word 'stature' correctly. I definitly would know then. Anyway. How can life seem anything but sweet when you've got this going on in your living room??

riding bikes on a tuesday

I wasn't feeling well today. I laid down at 12:30 to try to sleep it off and woke up at 4:15 groggy and feeling like crap. I texted my wornderful hubs and asked him to pick Kaden up and promptly fell back to sleep. Awhile later I work up to Jeff tip toeing into the room with a plate of pad thai from Noodles in Co. Have I mentioned how awesome he is?
Anyway. I wanted to write down some Kaden words. He, for some reason, has made up some substitutions for common every day words. I guess he thinks the English language is a  bit boring at times.
Kin-  this means 'thank you' he says it with much emphasis. Oh Kin mama, Kin for the spiderman toy.
Ga- This means 'glasses' I think this is more to do with the fact that he has trouble with his S's. The only other one that I can think of right now is that instead of saying 'i love you' he says 'you too!' Even if he's saying it first. I know there are more..I just can't think of them now.
Jeff's dad just stopped over to take a look at our sink and since Jeffie had already fixed it we all went on motorcycle rides instead.

well, everyone except this boy.
