Sprinkler Splashing

Today was pretty chill. I went for a morning walk and attempted a jog. I didn't jog as far as I had hoped. It has been too long since I have been in shape! Getting back at it for sure, though! Going to start going to the gym next week and until then I'm going to try to get back in shapenas much as possible outside on the walking path. Gotta look pretty in my dress in a couple weeks. :)

This evening I sat out back and watched Skyler play in the sprinkler in the nude. Haha! He had a blast. He was so excited. Here are a few pictures from tonight:

Finished the evening with macaroni and cheese, bath and bed for Booger! It has been an overall good day! Hope the same for all of you, and if it hasn't been splendid or anything close, tomorrow is a new day! Goodnight!

Well, it seems that I have neglected this blog again, and for quite a while at that. Oops... I guess I will start updating you with my trip back home to Indiana. Then, I will tell you about the random other occurrences that came about the past month or so.

In July, Booger and I flew home to visit my family. It was pretty laid back. It was Skyler's first airplane ride, so that was exciting for him. He is always fascinated with aircraft of any sort. We spent time at the lake, which was also another first for him. He loved playing in the sand, and being able to walk and jump in the water on his own. We also went swimming at Nancy's. We love her. :) We also got to meet my newest niece, Delaney. Cute! Spent time with family, and hung out at the bar a couple times. It was overall pretty fun, but wish I had more time with Mom, but she had work and is on 2nd shift.

After I got back to Texas, the heat continued to worsen. Yuck. We have spent a lot of time doing a whole lot of nothing inside the air conditioned house. Skyler has started talking a bunch more. He's also learning a few signs, as I am learning myself. I hope for us both to know the whole language soon as possible. Although, at this age he is learning the word faster than the sign, I still feel it is important to learn it. It could be very useful.

Brandon finished up his softball season. They did excellent this year. They actually made it to the tournaments. The past three years has been nothing but lost games and dissapointments, so this year was a fun and energetic change.

Brandon started Airman Leadership School, and has a couple more weeks and then he will graduate from that, and we will get to dress up all fancy and be elegant and professional for a night. Haha! This also means that he passed the promotion test for Staff Seargent. That means another stripe and a significant, much needed pay raise! He's got a few months or so still before he can sew on, as we are awaiting his line number, which is 7000-something. They promoted just over 1400 this month, so if it continues at that pace or similar, he should be an official E5 by January or February. I'm very pleased with him! So very proud of his hard work, and all that studying!

Not much else has happened. Just living life. Just us three. Until next time, peace out!

our fourth/fridays are for flying...

Boogie with Mommy
Boogie with Mommy and Daddy
Skyler was absolutely amazed by the fireworks. He kept saying, "oooooooh" and "what is it?" "what is that?" "look at it". =) I love his guts! For the most part we didn't really do anything extraordinary. Went grocery shopping, came home and grilled cheeseburgers and ate potato salad.  Then we met up with my best friend, her brother and her super adorable daughter.  (That's the little girl in the picture, but I'm sure you know that.) We followed each other and fought horrible traffic there and even worse traffic on the way home...I think it took us at least 45 minutes to get home if not more.  Pretty decent fireworks, but we were pretty far away from them so it would have been better up closer.  Nevertheless, Boogie had a blast and was all smiles.

I'm BOOKED! Boogie and I are flying home this Friday.  Brandon is staying behind, and we're all three going this winter for Skyler's 2nd birthday party, and he'll have a ton of leave to use by then.  My sister had her baby girl a few weeks early, but she's perfectly healthy and cute as a freaking button! No, definitely way cuter than a button. =)  I can't wait to meet her, and I'm sure Skyler is going to love her and rub her head and say, "niiiiii" (niiii=nice) lol.

Welp, that's about it.  Until next time. XOXO, Karen

...dishes, laundry, normal mommy duties... won't bore you with that. I'll just let you see some cute pictures from the day, and some from a couple weeks ago that I forgot were on the camera.

Just me and my sweet, sweet Skyler. =)

*you see, he's not even supposed to be playing on the stairs, but he looked really, really cute.*
That's all. Have a fantastic night!

Friday is for flashing back =)

Tia, I got this blog inspiration from your blog. Hope you don't mind.  I don't know if I will do it every Friday, but hey, I'm bored and can't sleep. Both of the boys are conked out, so I figured what the hecks. =)

First photograph that I found is of my Mom. I don't know much about it, other than she is really super pretty. =) I think this may have been before I was born, because she is on the beach. She lived in Florida while my Dad was stationed there and that was before my time. That's my conclusion, and I'm positive that I'm correct. HAHA. She is still beautiful by the way.

The next photograph is of me when I was a wee litto one. Probably two years old or less.  I think it looks a lot like Skyler if he were a girl. lol.  I love this one. I can't really remember this time since I was so young, but Mom has tons of home videos of me playing or what have you at this house. This was in Washington State while my Dad was still in the Air Force.  I was born a dork, that's for sure.  *And who knew big sunglasses would be cool again!? *

The last photograph is of me in junior high school.  Like mentioned above...definition of a dork. =) My favorite memories are from junior high. No doubt about it.  Still a kid, yet thought I knew it all.  Best friends.  Fun times. 

until next time, xoxo
