Fredag er god!!

Roselady over at Diapeepees started Good Fridays...
a day to reflect on the 'good' of the week, no D allowed!  
Fredag er god!...Friday is good!
Danish this week!

1.  Bean is HOME!!  I know she had a great time at camp and honestly it was nice to have a break from the sibling squabbling, but I totally missed her and am SO glad she's home!

is it me or is she stinkin' cute?!?

2.  Camping with Friends.  This was our second year going camping with friends for the Fourth weekend.  It was quite the experience last year since we'd never been camping and it rained pretty much non-stop, but even so, we looked forward to doing it again this year.  Thankfully we had way more sun than rain (even had some sunburn to prove it!) and had a way better RV (amazing rental that we've already set up for next year!) and had a better handle on D (we were barely a month into it when we camped last year!!).
    It's a big group from Bean's school and we are the only ones at the camp grounds.  So we can let the kiddos wander free without worrying about who they might run into and also know that whoever might see them making some not so great choices will call them on it.  It's like a big family and it's just plain awesome!

Bean was on her bike non-stop...hopefully next year w/o training wheels!

3.  Potty Training.  This is something I've been meaning to get to for weeks.  We've had a couple of starts and stops...yeah, I know, not the best plan of action, but life gets in the way sometimes!  So, since Bug has to be potty trained for VBS next week and I totally need those three hours a day without kiddos to get some much needed stuff done around the house, we got down to some serious business this week! ;)  She's been doing really well and hasn't had any accidents at all today.  WOOHOO!

yeah, she's stinkin' cute, too
even when she's refusing to smile for a picture!


  1. The potty pic is to cute... its like shes sayin "really, your gonna take one now!?!?!

    BTW: I had to stop by and tell ya... those were not my shoes. Even I have limits :)

  2. Oh, Bean is stinkin' cute alright. Vvveeerrryyyy stinkin' cute.

    Speaking of stinkin' . . . . you are so going t get yelled at when Bug is older and sees what you posted on your blog. As my sister would say "Looks like she is bumping a grumpy!"

  3. Adorable potty pic! We are working on potty time with Nate too. Oy vey!

  4. The self portrait of Bean is adorable!!!

    The camping pics are beautiful, especially love the rainbow.

    Must comment about Bug's pic...hysterical that you took one on the potty. Her face is priceless!!! :)

  5. Ha!!! ADORABLE. Sounds like a pretty darn good week!!! xo

  6. omg I am totally laughing like a lunatic at Amy's comment "bumping a grumpy" LOLOL! Bean and Bug are ADORABLE and that is so awesome that you all had the entire campground to yourselves...very cool!

  7. good luck on the potty training! So glad I am past that part of life! :) Your kids are adorable!

  8. Yes, definitely so stinkin' cute!! : ) (and their skin is so perfect!!)

  9. Hehe...totally stinking cute for both of them! And yeah, I'm laughing over Amy's comment too! Bug is not going to be happy with you when she gets older and sees that pic! Gotta love those blackmail pictures!

  10. Woo Hoo on the potty training! Is VBS this week, then? If so, I hope she did it!

    Oh...and yes....she is stinkin' cute!
