Happy Mother’s Day 2017

Katie pointed out that she gave me chicken hands and high heels. :)


My shirt said so.

A bunch of baseball parents went out tonight for Cinco de Mayo. This is our obligatory date night selfie:

And my obligatory lipstick photo (these are how I post them in my Facebook group):

And the obligatory margarita photo with my Mommy needs a margarita shirt in the background. (This was the most appropriately-themed piece of clothing I had for the holiday.)


What was funny is that as we were sitting down, all the girls gravitated towards one end so the table was split into boys and girls.

F-It Friday #4

It was our turn to host tonight and we had a small group as two families couldn’t make it… But we made up for it in craziness.  

The group selfie…

And then we had Katie take a picture!

And then one of the kids mentioned Pie Face and we had whipped cream for the dessert, so… There was lots of this. 



Tired Katie and relaxed daddy.

Watching the Lady Gaga Super Bowl half-time show. 


Can I pack her away with all the Christmas stuff?!


She may or may not be wearing her hand-me-down dance costume to school as well as ballet.


So I’m kind of a redhead for a bit. 

So I did this tonight. I couldn’t pass up a $3.99 special at the grocery store. 😜 It’s not too bad—it’s been a long time since I had reddish hair—but I think I like the lighter/blonder better.

Not a huge difference but definitely different.

My first trip to DC with the family!

The deal was they were Pokémoning and I was taking pictures!

A long line of ducks.

At Katie’s castle, otherwise known as the Jefferson Memorial!

We stopped to take over a gym!

I tell you this cat puts up with a lot. 


Kidisms 28

I accidentally got a speck of ketchup on Katie so I licked it off.
Katie: Awww. Now I have mama slobber.

Katie: Can I have a snack when we get home?
Me: It will be lunchtime.
Me: :|

Katie was running around in her superhero Barbie cape.
Tom: Wow! Good jump! You jumped over Maggie!
Katie: Yes, because I’m a superhero!

We were at the library playground.
Owen: Mom, I know what I want to do. 
Me: What?
Owen: Go over to the book and put my head in the hole for the caterpillar head and you can take a picture.


Two silly gooses having fun before swim lessons!


And then I pretended I was taking a picture and got this video:
