Well I’m happy to report, because I know you are all on pins and needles waiting, we have almost gotten rid of our major ant problem. You can all take a deep sigh of relief The day after using the little ant trap things, I was so happy there were very few little guys wandering around our house. And the ones that were left, were all moving a bit suspiciously slow. I imagined lots and lots of dead ants out there somewhere. Then later that afternoon I opened our dishwasher…yes, our dishwasher and BAM!!! It was as if every ant in the vicinity had moved into our dishwasher…like it was their safe house from the new ant traps…like a storm cellar for ants avoiding the tornado of stellar, stealth ant killing going on outside in our kitchen. I wanted to set our dishwasher on fire, but I got wise and avoided a house fire and instead added a few ant traps to the dishwasher. And today, well today, there are still some ants in our dishwasher, but were working on it. I don’t want to jinx it, but the ants may officially be on their way out. So a big kudos to Grant’s Kills Ants. Look out Terro, there may be a new ant killer in town.
This weekend we picked our fun up a notch. Waiting for Amon is crazy hard…seriously, seriously, seriously crazy hard, but we’re determined not to spend this time sulking, but celebrating and having some summer fun before school begins and I hit the air again to bring him home. I CANNOT WAIT, but having a bit of fun is taking the edge off.
My niece McKinley had an ice skating birthday party. This was everyone’s first time on the ice and it was so funny watching everyone figure it out. Great first time and a fun way to celebrate McKinley turning 7!
I got some A.M.A.Z.I.N.G mail from my cousin Rebecca. Lisa Leonard rocks my world. Thank you so much Rebecca. Completely rad baby gift.
Our yard is in full bloom. We were so sad when we noticed our crepe myrtle trees still had not bloomed and then finally…they did. Crape myrtles are my favorite, so I was a bit nerdy excited when I noticed they finally bloomed…super late, but big beautiful blooms.
And our coneflowers are off the hook. I can’t tell you how many times over the years I took my mom vases of these flowers.
We did a little grilling and filled up our classy little plastic pool. I promise, I bet the wee Kelleys will be playing in a plastic pool until they are 18. They love it.
The wee Kelleys also love to flash the “I love you” sign. When Harper shot it my way over dinner, I gave her the “I love you” sign, plus a “2″. They thought it was pretty cool.

We cannot get enough of Sonic happy hour. And is there really such a thing as too much Sonic happy hour? I think not.
Baseball…everyday. And in the best most cutest form.
And I enjoyed some sewing. I added a cute little “a” to Amon’s blankie and fixed Harper’s backpack straps. In all my years of sewing I have only broken one needle…and then I got to work on Harper’s backpack and I broke two needles in one sitting. But her backpack is fixed and ready for kindergarten. I hope I can continue to patch her bag as time wears on it and that it lasts her all the way through high school.
Hope you had a great weekend too. Hope you had some fun!
