Bumpers, Boys & Babes


A whole week went by without me posting again? Is that even possible?

I guess with the summer time, YES! It is.

So what has the Eyeglasses & Endzones clan been up to?

We opted to take the boys to our amusement park but the afternoon we chose ended up being total downpours soooo...when in doubt, head to the Mall of America amusement park Nickelodian Universe!

It is a small park but it packs some punch...there are a couple of really great rides in that place if I do say so myself (not much of a thrill seeker these days)!

But then....Just by pure luck we stopped into Best Buy not to buy the Hanna Montana Movie.

And look who we bumped into???? Brooke White from American Idol! She released her new album and was doing a signing at the store. She was honestly soooo sweet! I can't tell you..

My favorite conversation of the day (between receiver and I)

Me: "What are you going to say to her?"

Receiver: "Uh, I'm gonna ask her how to be a SING-ER"

Me: "That's a great question. I'm sure she will tell you lots of ideas."

When the moment came to talk to her...he looks up at me and right in front of her he says

"Mom, She is too pretty to talk to...." poor baby got NERVOUS over a beautiful girl for the 1st time...and yes folks at the ripe ol' age of 5!!!

Don't forget today is my day over at the 5 Moms blog also....Two posts for the price of NONE!

My 1st Bloggity Meeting!!!!

So yes, I know I have neglected my blog for the past couple of weeks. I think we have discussed my longing need to squeeze all things fun into the last couple of weeks of summer..thus NO posting (wipe away your tears)!

But I have been up to sooo much fun it is not even funny!!! Well, some of it HAS been funny but I'll save that for another post..another time!!! ;)

What did I do this weekend? I had my 1st Bloggity Meeting with Julie from
Wife Mom Nurse!!!

We met at the infamous Mall of America and had a yummy coffee drink!

Fire hubby and the kiddos were enjoying Nickelodeon Universe so I did not meet them, but Julie had the lovely fortune of meeting QB, Receiver and Tight End (he he)!
In her words
"Wow, they are 3 dimensional!!! "

I had the best time chatting with her about where they live,
her very interesting job and how she loves it (jealous of that I tell you).

We even had a random stranger snap this photo of us for Proof!

In Julies words again "It's like having a pen pal"! I totally agree. This is a really great way to meet people and I guess I can kinda understand how Internet dating became so popular and how so many people starting meeting in real life.*
*Note to Julie, that was not an attempt to DATE you just purely a connection to the internet and in real life!*

It was really funny because while we were sitting and chatting...we BOTH got phone calls....
Can you GUESS from who?
Yep...MiMi and Elaine
Our IRL girls were calling us to say "Hi" !!!

Let me end by saying...I just LOVED LOVED LOVED meeting Julie and I hope that all of you have had a great time meeting up with Bloggity Buddies over the summer!

I Heart Faces...Bubbles

Another really fun week over at I Heart Faces! My kids LOVE bubbles and I had NO pictures of them with bubbles from this, as you guessed it was a great excuse to get out the camera and snap away at what is sure to be one of the best summer past times...just like Hot Dogs and Baseball, this is an activity that NEVER gets boring.

Please be sure to link up to I Heart Faces and check out all the other great entries!
Till Next Week!

I ♥ Faces... Silly Faces

Another week at I ♥ Faces and I have to play along. Of course, this may not be the silliest out there....but it is pretty much what most of my "photo shoots" look like with my boys! Every other photo has to be a silly face or they won't give me a good one...Guess I can handle that!~

Please go and check out I ♥ Faces. This week is sure to be a great one!

Am I Ready?


Why do kids have to get bigger? Sometimes I wish there was a wand that would allow you to wave it and they could stay just the way they are...I love the ages that my boys are right now and yet some days I still feel like I am taking them for granted...passing them in the hallway of the house without picking them up and squeezing to say "I Love You".

Perfect example: Receiver at the park last night..he says "Mom, can you put me on the Hangeroni"? I say "What is the Hangeroni"?

He says "That thing"....

Guess we all know where I get my word verifications...they are coming straight from my 5 year old!!! And, didn't you all know that was the HANGERONI anyways?

*BONUS* since we got the puppy, I have had a great helper. The dog even respects him and listens to his commands. I'm pretty proud of my oldest dude stepping up to the plate (and yes, I can even get him to pick up poop every once in a while)

Fatherhood here he comes... I know that I have been absent in the comment world. I just have been feeling like I only have a couple of weeks left before they go back to school and we get into the routine of sports, and school so I am enjoying my free time with the boys. I will be back soon and I won't take it personally if you don't comment.

I know you all love me (LOL)!!!!

Here are a couple of pics from yesterday...

Just feeling the need to capture a little more of SUMMER!
