Need a laugh today? I did.

Trace: Mom, I have an ear whack in here somewhere.
Me: Whats an ear whack? 
Trace: (He points to his ear)
Me: Oh, do you mean ear wax? 
Trace: No, its just one whack but I can't get it out.

The coolest toy EVER!

The kids and I took a road trip to Michigan to visit family and friends.  Mylee and I went to visit a friend of mine who has a daughter the same age age as Mylee.  We the girls spent HOURS riding this toy!

No hands!

Chick-Fil-A cow appriciation!

We appriciate them and got free food!  Love Chick-Fil-A and my little calves!
(Treyton was a camp, but we had his costume to go back for dinner!)

Look who can ride a 2 wheel bike now!

Trace can!  "Watch where you're going!"

I wish I could have gotten a better picture of this but he was cruising to fast or would turn as I snapped!

for homemade ice cream!

I dont think they liked it? (sense the sarcasm?)


If interested in making it at home...
1/2 cup milk
1 Tbsp sugar
flavor of choice
mix into a plastic ziplock sandwich bag
in a gallon ziplock fill half full of ice, tsp salt, sealed sandwich bag from above and seal closed
being sure to hold the seal closed, shake shake shake...shake your booty (you have to sing the song or it wont work)
keep singing and shaking until the milk mixture turns into ice cream
