A Break From Rain

I am so sick of the rain!! 

As I'm sure you've all heard or have been experiencing yourself, the northeastern part of the US has been hit hard with rain this week.  I think on the news last night just in the past couple days areas around here got 15" plus of rain.


Now we wait for the Susquehanna River to crest to cause even more damage.  

Luckily we have been fairly fortunate and haven't had any problems so far.  

So needless to say we've been stuck inside most of the week, Logan even had a 'rain day' yesterday and school was closed.   I've been sitting here catching up on blogs, looking through old pics and writing some blog posts myself.  

I found this picture last night....

That is one of the gardens the early in the summer.   I remember taking this picture and can still smell and feel the summer air.  I can't believe it but I MISS summer already :(   I can't believe its OVER.  

Here are a few more...

I can't wait for summer.

Heelys Review

I was recently given the opportunity to review a pair of Heelys.    You might be wondering what exactly are Heelys?   They are these super cool shoes that look like regular sneakers but have a wheel hidden in the heel so you can skate.   You can also pop the wheels out and put a cover over the hole so you can wear them anywhere like regular shoes. 

Now, they were SUPPOSED to be for me...I honestly thought about it for 2 seconds.   I used to love rollerskating when I was younger and eventually rollerblading but that was two kids and a lot of years ago.   I'm pretty sure me being me would have broken something within 5 minutes of putting them on. 

Instead I got a pair for Logan and he was absolutely thrilled.   I must say when they arrived I was a little disappointed I didn't get a pair for me because they are really cute shoes without the wheel in them.   We had a really tough time picking a pair out because they were all so awesome looking.   Eventually we decided on ones that look like this except where these are pink his a lime green.  

I must say I was really impressed with the quality of these shoes not to mention how many different styles they have available.   We really did have a hard time deciding on which pair to get.  

Logan is having a hard time learning how to skate in them though and since I've never done it I've had a hard time giving him pointers.   Luckily there is this great how to video available on their website.

I can see that once he gets a hang of it, this will be something for him to do that is fun and also keeps him active.   They also have a great  safety playbook to go over for yourself or with your child.  It is a huge peeve of mine when I am in the store and a kid whizzes by me on their skate shoes, that is something that is NOT reccomended.

As required by the FTC: I received no monetary compensation for this review. I received a product sample for the purpose of my review. All opinions expressed are mine and mine alone

First Day of Preschool


It has been rainy and absolutely miserable here the past two days.   Today it did absolutely nothing but rain. 

Luckily both boys had school today, if they would have been stuck home and inside again today it wouldn't have been pretty.   It was Cole's first official day of preschool, he was brave the whole way.  When the tears started to fall he very roughly brushed them from his eyes.....Here is a pic of the two off to school....

What is especially cute about this picture, right before I snapped it Logan told Cole to put his arm around him and when he did Cole said to Logan "do you love me brother?"  :*)  it was so cute.  Logan said yes as I hit the button. 

Oh,  like how the tractor gets to sit in out of the rain and snow in the carport but my car has to sit out in it?   There is something not right about that.
