We lost Jewel!

Our kitty is missing! I think the last time I saw her was on Tuesday. Mike thinks he saw her Wednesday morning. She's never been gone more than a day so I'm pretty upset. We did get her microchipped and I've called our vet, but so far no info on her. I just hope she didn't get hurt. Mack and I drove the neighborhoods this morning looking for her and putting up posters. I sure hope we find her. :(

Like father ~ like daughter?

Well of course Mackenzy had to try the weight set too! We'll have a video of her pumping iron shortly. My camera battery needs to charge first...

Pumping Iron!

Well Mike finally got his weight set. He's now going to be an ironman! Yippee for me! I've always wanted to be married to a bodybuilder. (not really, but interesting thought) Here's a video of his first workout. lol

Marshmallow Trouble

Lately Mackenzy had decided that she can get into the food in the kitchen. The last few days I keep catching her with the bag of marshmallows in her room! How does she get them? I put them up in a high cupboard and thought "OK, problem solved". Nope! She can climb up there and get them... everytime I turn my back. So I moved them to the top of the refridgerator. "NOW the problem is solved", I thought smugly. Umm... no! I still caught her with the marshmallows! She managed to climb on top of the stove and get them. Yikes! Now where to hide them? Actually, we decided on a time out for climbing and eating marshmallows without permission. What a stinker!

4th of July Pictures

Here are some pictures from the 4th of July. These were all our own and our neighbors displays. It's still legal in Lynnwood to do fireworks, but I suspect next year it might not be. It was very pretty though. Hard to catch the beauty on camera, but I tried.

Good News!

Guess What?!? I'm going to switch to evening shift! Yippee! I just found out that I'll be moving to evenings in late August. So, my life will be back to normal... or as close to normal as I can get. :) Just wanted to share my happy news. I did a little happy dance when I found out.

Daddy ~ Daughter Camping

Mike and Mackenzy had been planning a camp out in the backyard. Last night was the night. We roasted marshmallows and made s'mores, we sat by the fire, we watched the stars, and yup... you guessed it. We all slept in the backyard. I woke up this morning and I felt like I'd been hit by a truck. Sleeping on the ground will do that to a person. I haven't camped in a tent in the backyard since I was a child and now I remember why. Ouch! But Mackenzy had a great time. Now who's going to put all that stuff away? Who?!?
our "backyard adventure"

Wild Beauty

What is she thinking?

Quotes from a 4 year old

(At the dinner table)
Mackenzy ~ One more bite and then I'm done?
Mike ~ No, keep taking bites until we say you're done.
Mackenzy ~ This one and this one and this one and this one?
Mike ~ Now we're on the same page.
Mackenzy ~ Daaaaaaad! We're not in a book!
Me ~ hysterical laughter
Isn't dinner time fun at our house. lol

Mackenzy and Mike are going to have a special camp out in the backyard tonight. We'll be setting up the tent and getting out the sleeping bags. We even have a fire pit to roast marshmallows and hot dogs. Yummy! I may have to crash the party so I can snag a s'more. Mmmmmm..... Don't get between me and chocolate, it's dangerous. I'll take some pictures to share later. Mackenzy is very excited about it. She's been "packing" her things for her adventure tonight.
