The stomach virus is the devil.

I'm sure most of you spent your Spring Break on a beach somewhere sipping a fruity cocktail and yelling at your kids not to throw the sand.  Us?  We spent ours in the bathroom.  And it was awful.  In a 24 hour period, Andrew, Banks and I were all taken to our knees and I'm just now able to get back up.  Poor Andrew still isn't well and he's going on day 7.  Not only did we go down, but we took 6 other friends/their kids down with us.  Yikes.  We definitely get the bad friend award for that one.  There is a special place in hell for the stomach virus and mosquito's.

On a brighter note, the weather this weekend was FABULOUS.  Totally lifted our spirits and we got a good dose of Vitamin D.  We broke out the sand and water table, the bounce house, rode bikes, worked in the yard and played with just about every outdoor toy we own.  Banks played by himself for most of the day Saturday.  Did you hear me???  He played BY HIMSELF for most of the day.  Almost never happens.  And we just left the door from the den to the patio open and Andrew just crawled in and out, in and out all day long happy as a lark.  This time of the year is my favorite.  Lots of outside time, no mosquito's, cool breeze, dirty little boys and everyone just sleeps better!!!  I actually remembered to get out my real camera one afternoon.  I have been so bad about either not taking pictures or only taking them on my phone!

Serious business.
 
Two happy boys!!!


Love me some summer clothes and some chunk legs!!!

Playing nicely together!

Some truths

1.  Yes, Banks is usually in his 'roos only.  I recently had a girl I went to college introduce me to her mother as 'a friend who has a little boy who's always naked'.  Yes, that's me.  She gathered that information from all my instagram posts in which Banks is never clothed.
2.  Banks does have super cute clothes and does wear them in public, just to be clear.
3.  I almost always have a "snail trail" on my shoulder or pants leg.  I swear I cannot make it out of the house before someone snots me.
4.  This is the only picture I have taken in the last month:

5.  I am just returning from a FABULOUS girls weekend in Nashville.
6.  I need more girls weekends.
7.  Andrew is on the verge of walking and it scares the poo out of me.
8.  I joined the gym about a month ago and I've been sore ever since.
9.  I don't think my cottage cheese will ever go away.
10.  I don't know why I suck at blogging these days.
