A*M*E*R*I*C*A*!

Love starting the day off with a little 5K with Sissy. She isn't exactly what you would call a morning person. Luckily for me she did warm up about half way through the race. Tim decided to go for the 10K, even though his shoes never pound the pavement he managed a dang good time. After the race, we decided to take Wall-e dog up to the canyon for a picnic and hiking. This was totally my kind of day. I planned it. That's what I do I plan things. . .and things were going so well. . . we ate. . .talked Barrett fat arms, and even snapped some fun pictures. . .. .
And then this happened. . . put just a little damper on things and cut our afternoon a little short. . ..really short. Thank goodness Aunt Lyss was with us. Tim and I were able to take Max to the ER together. Don't you worry. It didn't take Max long to recover and we just kept on celebrating the freedoms of America. Who knew throwing pop-its at Aunt Lyss could be so fun?!!? They are only showing their love for you Aunt Lyss. I think they love you ALOT. . .ALOT. . ..ALOT!
And . . .we did Sparklers. . .
We can not leave out a yummy yum treaty treat!
And a trick or two. Max thinks he is pretty dang funny. Who does that?? Who turns the spinklers on . . . .on their mom?? Stinker! I went easy on him. .. for heaven sakes the kid has staples in his head.

Sorry for the picture overload. I just started making mosaics and I couldn't stop. I Love America and I love my family so much. (You too Aunt Lyss~ Thanks for playing with us!) HAPPY 4TH OF JULY!

I got worked during the pop it war and my main competitive was Doddle (Max), I would say he recovered pretty fast. :) He is a bounce back kid! Thanks for letting me a part of your guys great day, I love your little family to pieces and couldn't be more grateful for you all. Sorry for being a grumpy lady for the first part of the run but thanks for making me do it. :)
P.S. you are fired for putting that pic up, Mom now has proof that I flip people off and will now not hesitate to break it off. :) But I am glad the Barrett fat arm picture didn't get posted!

Hey did you guys hear about Kisser's new nick name??? "9 finger Kiss" what do you think? I think it's pretty catchy. And when I catch her with a scalpel in my hand that's exactly who she's gunna become unless she wants to go for "8 Finger Kisser". Unfreaking believable Kiss - you are an example!!! Better kul it before Dudels flips off one of his teachers - no you are no so subtle as you think. Remember, dads are always watching!!!
