A Day at The Childrens Museum

The Childrens Museum here in Denver is such a blast...
The kids can paint....

Work at "King Soopers", Boston was on "clean-up" duty....

Brooklyn preferred to run the register......

and load her cart up with many un-needed items...Wonder where she learned to do that??

Yes, this is a real saw!! She was making a "lunch-box"out of recycled materials....

The kids painting....No these Smocks did not protect our clothing as intended...

Ashleigh Bridal Shower!

Ashleigh's Denver Shower!
This past weekend was Chase (Chase is Tyler's Younger Brother) and Ashleigh's Denver Bridal shower.. Ash received some great gifts..I am so jealous! I want to get married all over again... (To Tyler of Course) just to have another shower! It was so fun to meet her family and introduce them to all the Carlson Clan..I know it can be a bit overwhelming...Sorry Ash..I feel your pain.... Ash and I both come from very small families with two sisters each. The initial meeting can be a little intimidating. You did great..The names will all come in time!
We love you Ash and can't wait until you are officially part of the family! We couldn't ask for a sweeter, classier more humble addition! Kisses! A-

Why we love our kids!

I came across this today and was laughing so hard.... it was a great distraction from my Saturday cleaning routine! I thought this might make all you moms laugh! Enjoy!! A-

1. A small boy is sent to bed by his father. Five minutes later.... "Da-ad...."
"I'm thirsty. Can you bring a drink of water?"
"No, You had your chance. Lights out."
Five minutes later: "Da-aaaad....."
"I'm THIRSTY. Can I have a drink of water??"
I told you NO! If you ask again, I'll have to smack you!!"
Five minutes later......"Daaaa-aaaad....."
"When you come in to smack me, can you bring a drink of water?"

2. An exasperated mother, whose son was always getting into mischief,
finally asked him "How do you expect to get into Heaven?"
The boy thought it over and said, "Well, I'll run in and out and in
and out and keep slamming the door until St. Peter says, 'For
Heaven's sake, Dylan, come in or stay out!'"

3. It was that time, during the Sunday morning service, for the
children's sermon.
All the children were invited to come forward.
One little girl was wearing a particularly pretty dress and, as she
sat down, the minister leaned over and said, "That is a very pretty
dress. Is it your Easter Dress?"
The little girl replied, directly into the minister's clip-on
microphone, "Yes, and my Mum says it's a bitch to iron."

4. When I was six months pregnant with my third child, my three year
old came into the room when I was just getting ready to get into the shower.
She said, "Mummy, you are getting fat!" I replied,"Yes, honey, Remember Mummy has baby growing in her Tummy..." "I know," she replied, but what's growing in your bum?"

5. A little boy was doing his math homework. He said to himself,
"Two plus five, that son of a bitch is seven.
Three plus six, that son of a bitch is nine...."
His mother heard what he was saying and gasped, "What are you doing?"
The little boy answered, "I'm doing my math homework, Mum."
"And this is how your teacher taught you to do it?" the mother asked
"Yes," he answered.
Infuriated, the mother asked the teacher the next day, "What are you
teaching my son in math?"
The teacher replied, "Right now, we are learning addition."
The mother asked, "And are you teaching them to say two plus two,
that son of a bitch is four?"
After the teacher stopped laughing, she answered,
"What I taught them was, two plus two, THE SUM OF WHICH, is four."
