oh the lazy days of summer....AND MY HOUSE IS A WRECK!!

the culprits?....see below!


the only reason why the shelf is neat is because R cant reach!

the floor in H and R's toy closet-can barely even see the hardwoods!.....and to think
 that i had this totally organized last week! other people's
kids are like this too, right?

out of control shoe basket, and some random...ugh!

my bookcase is no longer mine, but rather a remote control helicoptor landing area and lego display and junk center.

lego central!


 everyone's house is like this, right??

VIRGINIA'S OPSAIL 2012: DAY 2

 ONE OF THE MOST SPECTACULAR EVENTS I HAVE EVER SEEN..... INTERNATIONAL AND DOMESTIC SHIPS SAILING IN BOAT PARADE FROM THE CHESAPEAKE BAY INTO DOWNTOWN NORFOLK FOR OPSAIL 2012.
WE THOUGHT THE SAILORS WERE FAKE AT FIRST.....UNTIL THE SHIP GOT
CLOSER.....CRAZY!
SAILING DOWN THE ELIZABETH RIVER IN THE PARADE OF SAILS
JUST ANOTHER DAY ON THE BOAT FOR R? LOOK BEHIND YOU!!!
THE INDONESIAN SHIP WAS CRACKING ME UP-THEY WERE BLASTING MUSIC AND THE SAILORS WERE DANCING HIGH UP IN THE SAILS-GUESS THEY ARENT AFRAID OF HEIGHTS!
DOWNTOWN NORFOLK
THE MEXICAN SAILORS...GOOD TO SEE THEM WEARING A  HARNESS!
COULDN'T ASK FOR A NICER DAY.
