Flowers and Fun

Sometimes I have so much to share and one of the best ways for me to do that is to compile it all in one random post.  It's Monday, and I'll be sharing my randomness with you and at lowercase letters.

In January, I planted some hardy gladiolus bulbs.  You can read about it here.  I'm happy to report that the bulbs have turned into beautiful flowers.  I didn't know if they would produce flowers this year so this was a pleasant surprise.  The flowers are just emerging, and I think they will be even more beautiful in a few days.  Yay!  I have more flower photos to show you but that will be later in the week.

I love my boys so much! 
Every time I hear Taylor Swift's "Never Grow Up" I get teary-eyed.  It's the sweetest song and my boys are at the sweetest ages. 

Will is 4.5 and we're talking about Pre-K.  I can't believe he's old enough to discuss pre-registration for Pre-K.  We still don't know if we'll send him or not.  He may just stay with his grandma one more year and then start kindergarten next fall.  Decisions, Decisions!

Ben is almost 2!  It just seems like we were bringing this little fella home from the hospital.  Now he's an active little guy who thinks he's as big as his big brother.  Writing that he's almost 2 reminds me that I better get it in gear and start planning his birthday party.  Note to self--better get started on that ASAP!

My boys are the sweetest and so are my friends' kiddos.  We had friends over for the weekend and their little boy Dade is so adorable.

On Saturday my friend Shelly thought it would be fun to buy the boys the new Crayola colored bubbles.  The boys LOVED it, but it was a HUGE mess.  The bubbles are washable so the mess wasn't permanent.  Here they are in the yard playing in the bubbles. 

To say they had fun is an understatement. 

Here's the evidence of the fun.  I thought they looked like freedom fighters in the movie Braveheart with their faces all blue. 

Ben had a blast, too! 

I wish I could show photos of the clean up process, but I was busy spraying the boys down with the water hose.  All of the colored bubbles came off and no one went to church on Easter Sunday with a bluish and orangish tint to their skin.

Miscellany Monday @ lowercase letters


  1. I've been pretty sentimental about the girls too. We went to Kindergarten round-up on Thurs!!! Miss those boys!

  2. The flowers are lovely!!!

    And again, those boys are just too cute.

  3. How fun and messy! The boys are soo cute! Hope yall had a great Easter!!!

  4. My youngest two are similar ages, and I still get amazed at how much my heart can just spill with love every single day. We went to church with blue fingers from dying eggs!

  5. How cute! You have a beautiful family! Love the colored bubbles!

  6. I hadn't seen the colored bubbles before. My kids are older than yours, but they would love them too. Can't wait to try some out!
