Impromptu marshmallow roast

With makeshift campfire.

What's your dignity worth? Dress like a Cow day at Chick-Fil-A

At John's urging, all the kids said MOO instead of CHEESE. And they earned free CFA supper.

Slacker Mom

I have neither the creativity nor the patience of Gram, but for $3 I can stop the store tantrum before it starts.

It took five months to the day, but I've managed to (1) purchase matching ND shirts for the kids (2) find the matching shirts for the kids amidst all their clothes (3) dress the kids in their matching shirts all on the same day and (4) get them to pose while I had my camera (with a fully charged battery).

Belated happy birthday, Sarah!

How kids let Daddy rest

Imagine incessant chatter and constant fighting over who gets to sit closer to him.

Nice doggy

Two out of three (for now) Mitchell kids agree.

First outing to Avent Park

You'd think being pushed in the swing would be the preferred spot, but not when these two are in charge!
