Does anyone still ready this?

Every once in a while, someone will bring up our blog and either ask whether we've updated it, or tell me they're following it. My canned response is, "Yeah, I haven't updated it in a while but I plan to soon." That's kind of the truth, but sort of a lie. In my head what I'm thinking is, "Do you really think I'm that interesting and will you even notice if I don't update it?" Regardless of how that question is answered, the truth is that I would love to be more diligent about this blog for the sake of my family and girls. But damn Facebook and it's instant gratification interferes with blogging and makes it seem about as old school as writing a snail mail letter.

Nonetheless, I'm standing here in my kitchen on this fine Tuesday a.m., hammering out a quick post while the girls sleep. We're approaching July 4th - a favorite holiday in this house. For me, because it means family and friend time, for Jake, because it means explosives. So he was up bright and early and is out in the yard attacking the very overdue landscaping that needs serious help. We moved in over a year ago and were beyond overwhelmed by all the flower beds (I don't even know if that's what you call them, they're honestly more like gardens), shrubbery, and odd trees. So today and tomorrow Jake will be doing Sherman yard surgery, in prep for our annual party on Friday.

The girls are keeping busy this summer and lil Miss Maya has been giving us a run for our money and a glimpse of the temper she's got. It's a tad disturbing sometimes, to be honest. Layla is as sweet as ever, and always looking for the next big thing. "What are we doing today?" is her favorite question. Needless to say, play dates are our favorite thing right now. Next week she'll hit Camp Y-Coda for Pioneer Camp.

Over the next week or so we'll be prepping for a week long trip to Gig Harbor, WA. Just Jake and I. No kids. Yep, I said it. No kids. Both sets of grandparents will take a turn with kiddos while we're gone. I'm so very excited for the trip, but the anxiety has set in. Prep work is in full go with organizing the house, making sure the kids' laundry is done, food is prepped, guests are taken care of.

Never a dull moment. As I speak I hear the Monster yelling. I'm going to ignore her for a while and see how this goes.
