I've been something we call "lazy" around these parts. These pictures have been on the computer just waiting for resizing and to be posted. Instead, I've been sitting around reading Twilight.
"I usually don't have a burger, a brat, and a steak but, it is 4th of July. And I need the energy if I'm gonna start blowin crap up. It's what the founding fathers would want."
For Independence Day (Will Smith), Jesse and I traveled to Cottage Grove to hang out with my sister's in-laws. I've never ridden a quad before, and because I like making a fool of myself, it was the first thing I did there.
We then did crafts, because hey, I like crafts. First we made "angels".
Or "angles" as some might type, however mine is just a girl. Making a hair fashion statement.
Those wings were frustratingly hard to put on.
Then the Smith family (my sister and her husband, I can't believe I have to explain this to you, where have you BEEN) had a water balloon fight. Here is my niece Jasmine looking awfully adorable.
Oh, and here is one of Christy smashing a water balloon in Jasmine's face. You may need to click on it to get the full effect.
I went inside to check on Mikey later on, as he was supposed to have changed his clothes. I heard something that sounded a lot like a naked 6 year old jumping on the bed, and alas, I was right. We finally got him to put some shorts on.
My little stingray.
And then we painted shirts to be all patriotic up in here.
We blew stuff up.
And then we came home and had a heat wave. The cats haven't been doing much.
Do you like how I say the cats haven't been doing much? As in I often find them doing useful things?
Also, no, I did not read myself a children's book and then go to bed. That is ridunkulous.
Oh, and I saved the best for last.
I finished Twilight. Which means SPOILER. As though you don't know everything about Twilight already.
Was anyone ELSE annoyed with how stupid they made Edward seem when he showed his "true form" in the movie, but it wasn't nearly as lame in the book? In the movie he has the whole "You will see me in my scary monster form, inhale, large sigh" but in the book he was all casual about it. And he was a little less emo about the whole thing in the book. He was happy just to be around Bella. Okay, I know it's not the most amazingly written book, but considering a stay at home mom got the writing itch and just went with it? Not so bad, you dig?
And did you know if you misspell marital it can become martial? Talk about a strange conversation. Oh, irony! I just misspelled misspell up there.
