Iphone Living.....

I am dumping my iPhone pictures from the last few weeks-
Some of these have already been posted about- some I forgot we'd even done (things have been B-U-S-Y!) We finally made it to Toys 'R' Us to get Chatham's final birthday toy. He picked out a little race track town and LOVES IT!

We (the men) built a fire and made mountain pies for us after our Easter egg hunt at the Cadwallader's. I have a picture of Cara and Chatham in front (or close to) the bonfire every year since they were 1!! I love these kids!
 I took the last Friday of Spring Break off to enjoy some time with the kids. Lisa (being a teacher) had the whole week off and so did Lauren since she goes to "big school". We took them to Gastonia, and tried out a place I had heard about 'Monkey Joe's'. The kids LOVED it! It is a building filled with inflatable toys. There were five for the big kids (4 and up) and two for the little kids (3 and under). We were there for 2 hours and everyone had a blast!!! Harper spent more time on the big kid toys than the little kid toys (as long and Lisa or I went with her she was allowed to go on whatever she wanted).We will definitely be going back!
 I also convinced Devin we needed a dog. There was a CUTE picture in our local paper of a dog in need of a forever home from the human society. Its name is Amber and it hooked me- I test the picture to Devin and said "Can we?" he called me and immediately said "NO!" and that was the end of that. About 30 minutes later I got a text from Devin saying "yes"- I called him and said yes to what?? He said I think I want us to get a dog, just not that dog.... so we got on the humane society website and browsed there were a few cuties but nothing perfect for us. I talked to some work friends and got on a site for Boxers in our area....and there he was!!!! PARKS- the perfect, house trained, good with kids, black and white, five month old boxer! It was love at first sight and Devin agreed for us to go look at him that evening..... We never made it to the foster home to meet him. I got to school to pick up the kids and it went down hill from there. A toddler getting molars, a 4 year old with an attitude, everyone melting down in the car and at the dinner table. What crazy person would throw a dog in the mix!!! So here is our new dog:
 He is house broken, likes kids, and sleeps in his own bed! He's a keeper!

 The same weekend as Chatham's birthday party we took the cousins to the Science Center. I love their ages, I think everyone found something they loved!
Harper is really enjoying the toddler room at school. She is all smiles when I drop her off and pick her up. I think going outside to play is her favorite, she always goes to the far fence to say hi to Miss Wylona her former infant teacher! (Thanks for snapping a picture for me Lona!)

  1. Awww, I love these random pictures of life in action! I really hope you don't give up on your dream of getting a family dog. One day we'll definitely have to add another dog to the mix...not today though for obvious reasons! Haha! We need to meet up at a Monkey Joe's sometime...Evan's has loved that place since before he was able to walk! :-)
