A Week In Instagram

We took the boys to Breakers Waterpark.   I never thought I would be that old fuddy-duddy who is perfectly content to sit in the wave pool or lounge chair, while everyone else goes on all of the slides, but I am.  I went down one slide and that was plenty for me.  Der, who is clearly more adventurous than I, took the boys on all of the slides and had a blast.  I was perfectly content to sit and people watch.

Watching a storm build up.  I love the monsoon season!

Fun zebra graffiti.

When Kinex get left on my desk…

We painted the front of our house.  I love the colors, but I wish the grey were darker.  It was supposed to be, but Der and I chickened out at the last moment and bought lighter grey.  Now as penance for being scaredy cats, I either get to be filled with regret every time I look at it, or we get to repaint.  Der says it looks fine, which is code for “I don’t want to paint anymore.”

I shared this on FB, but had to share it here too, because it’s too brilliant not to.

Ami’s flipflop broke while we were out and about, and this was Der’s solution.

    I love the colors on your house!! It looks so pretty!

    I agree with the water park. I never thought I’d be one of those moms just sitting on the sidelines (like my own mom did!), but I find that is what I do while my husband rides the slides with the kiddos. 🙂

  2. Thanks Donna, but wouldn’t it be that much prettier if the grey were just a little darker? 😀
    When did I start getting old?! I don’t like it.

    Haha!! I know. It happened over night it seems.

    Yes, it would be nice also if the grey were a bit darker, but I do think it is very pretty the way it is too. Either way. I LOVE the door! 🙂

    Btw, beautiful pictures of your baby niece!! And I love the name Sophia. It almost makes me want another one…almost. 😉

  4. Thanks! The door is delicious, if I do say so myself. It makes me happy every time I see it.
    I know how you feel about “almost” wanting another baby.

  5. I like your colors too! And the flip-flop repair? genius! Your blog made me smile.

  6. Stopping by from the Insta-Friday linkup. I wish I was bold enough to paint my house like that, how fun! And I really could of used that flip flop trick the last time we went camping. First my daughter’s flip flops broke and not even an hour later mine did!

    • Thanks for stopping by Allison!

      It took a huge dose of bravery to go with such bold colors, but even then I chickened out a little. I am glad we did it though, because every time I pull into my driveway the colors make me smile.

      As far as the flip flops go, now we all need to keep rubber bands handy…just in case.

Leave a comment, it will make my day...I swear, I truly am that easy to please!
