House Husband

Over the weekend I went with 21 other women to hike and camp in Havasupai.  The hike was a total of twenty or so miles and not being a hiker, outdoorsie, a runner or an anything, I am very proud that I made it out alive and what's more, with a great experience.

The very best part of the trip was when I got home, the house was clean, Joey had fixed our waterfall/pond, he also enlisted the kids in helping him clean the schoolroom (that we have never actually used as a schoolroom yet because it's been such a disaster.)

As you can see he also did a few loads of laundry, swam with them, and took them to the movies.

Friday morning Joey dressed the kids up as cows (with Isabel's help) and got free meals at Chick-fil-a.  As you can see we are not afraid to sacrifice our children's dignity for free food.

Sylvia looks thrilled.

This picture makes me laugh.  Both her feet are an inch from the ground.

Joey also took them to the zoo.  I think Joey needs to be the house husband, or I really need to go on vacation by myself more often.


Sylvia's Bag Shirt and Hazel's Cloth Cupcakes

I had the kids pack for our trip to California.  When Sylvia brought me her backpack it was stuffed full so I just asked her if she had underwear, pajamas, shirts, pants, etc.  Once we got there I discovered she certainly thought to pack her pillow and stuffed unicorn but forgot to pack shirts.  She ended up making her own shirt.  Clever girl.

Don't worry, these are "nice guy cross eyes."

Holding to two babies, Hazel and Jack.

Some funny pictures by Hazel.

Isabel is cute but I don't know what's going on in the background.

Natalie made Hazel some cloth cupcakes with magnets sewed into the bottom.  As you can see, the bottoms of the tin are painted to make a matching cupcake game.

After placing the cupcakes in the color matching tin, Hazel claps and shouts, "Hurray!"
