Here are all the kids watching the parade, while Sean sits on the bench still working on his precious tootsie roll.
I'd say it was a great weekend for everyone!

here)This one is fun too. We were excited that we found it. The boys said, "It's I stink's friend!"
Two others we picked up were:
These were both very cute also. The boys liked the one where the llama had enough of shopping with his mom and threw a fit by throwing everything out of the shopping cart! Yes, it is very funny on paper. Lucky for them they haven't done that!
Here's a very rare picture of the two older ones reading together. I'll tell ya, when they fight, they fight! But when they are nice to each other it is very sweet. I was lucky to capture this moment.
Then there's Sean, who just kept himself busy trying to escape the camera. I got him, though! And what a smile!
Then they all decided to take off. Oh well, It was nice while it lasted!

I just hope(and pray) that none of my boys sing this one for me......
That said, here is one that made me cry. It was too adorable.......
Here is what Ryan (5) said at his M-Day party at school when asked:
"What does your Mommy do all day?"
"She washes dishes, she makes dinner, takes us to the zoo, she makes breakfast, she washes the house inside, she makes us lunch, takes a nap, she colors and plays with us."
(I think I have only taken them to the zoo once! Likewise for the nap!)
After all the hard work, there is nothing that fills my heart more than the " I love you, Mom"s. It makes it all worth it.

I don't really like the side view any better. Needless to say, After I discovered him, I called the boys to come see and I got up close for these shots. When you have all boys, you are forced to muster up some extra bravery when things like this happen. I hope it doesn't happen again!
Later on, Ryan and I were on the other side of the house and the bat came around and started flying all crazy-like! He was dive-bombing us and circling around us. If the neighbors saw it, they would have thought we were nuts! We ended up running down the driveway screaming!
I think I have had enough of bats for a while!
Except for this one.....
This one is much much cuter!!

Mom: "Colored wax."
Kevin: "Ear wax?"
Mom: "No, Kevin, like candles."
Kevin: "What are stingrays made of?"
Mom: "What are what made of?"
Mom: " A Stingray is a kind of a fish."
Kevin: "And they don't have any bones."
Mom: "Uh, I dunno."
Kevin: "Mommy, what are houses made of?"
Kevin: "What else?"
Kevin: "What are the chimneys made of?"
Kevin: "What are the windows made of?"
Kevin: "And what are those lines across the windows?"
Mom: "Uh...Window panes."
Kevin: "Because they pain to breathe."
Mom: "No, Kevin. Are you done pooping now? It's time for bed."

Our Cinco De Mayo Dinner Included:
Soft and Hard beef tacos w/ all the fixins
Tostitos & Salsa
And for Dessert: Chocolate Cupcakes.
Unfortunately we did not have any good music to play with dinner. The only thing I could find in Jeff's collection was Reggae or Luau. Not really gonna do it. That's ok. We had a great dinner!
Anybody want to share how you celebrated?

Ah! ok....(what should I put on?)
So I decided to put in Jeff's cd of this...
I looked in the rearview mirror and saw a huge smile, and heard...." Yeah! That's fancy!!!"
