Cub Scout Camp

A couple of weeks ago the kiddos and Scott spent the week at Cub Scout camp. God bless Scott for taking a week off to run around with 15 7-year-old boys and Jill.


The day camp was from 7:30 in the morning (yes, really) until 5 at night, which is insane! Needless to say, there were no problems at bedtime from all three of them.

Their days were spent learning how to shoot BB guns, bow and arrows and slingshots. They also had a water activity each day and a guest speaker. They also did a few science experiments as well as arts and crafts.


Jill hung in there with the boys the entire week, and at times was better than the boys. She was totally the Annie Oakley to all of the Frank Butler's at camp.


I know they are already looking forward to camp next year, but I think Scott may need some convincing. Okay, maybe a lot of convincing.

Thanksgiving Thursday



For those of you that don't know what Thanksgiving Thursday is, it is the one time during the week where you stop and basically count your blessings. Even if you've had one of those weeks, I promise you can find at least one thing to be thankful for, no matter how big or small.

This week I am thankful for...

  • Scott who spent an entire week with a group of 7 year old boys (and Jill). I'm thankful he took time to make those memories with the kiddos. I know they will always remember that.
  • Aaron and how he will always run up to me in the morning and give me a kiss. I love it.
  • Jillian who just wanted snuggles with her mommy when she was having a bad allergy day.
  • Family all around us.
  • Three day weekends.
  • Coffee in my favorite mug, because for some reason it makes it taste better.
  • The official start of marathon training (*vomit*)
What are you thankful for?

The Final Day of Tay Tay's Visit...Or Was It?

On Tay Tay's last day we made our way to Magic Kingdom. Naturally, we made several completely necessary popcorn stops.


It was definitely a really warm day, but the crowds were not awful. We were able to get on quite a few rides (thank goodness for Fastpass!). We even made our way on to the speedway. I let Jill drive...


Aaron and Tay Tay were speeding up behind us. It was a super fun and super warm day. 

The kiddos snoozed the entire way to the airport and I headed home. Tay Tay's flight was delayed the moment she stepped foot in the airport and that night she sent me a text saying her flight was canceled. Thank goodness I didn't strip the bed! 

The next morning when the kiddos were getting ready they didn't realize Tay Tay was still at the house. Jill noticed that Tay Tay's suitcase and phone were still in her room. She was concerned that Tay Tay forgot them. Then she saw Tay Tay and the expression on her face was priceless. 

I'm so glad I was able to spend a few days with my sister. We Bednarek girls sure know how to make the most of our girls weekends.

The House Divided

For Tay Tay's third day we went to the White Sox - Rays game. The house was divided between Rays and Sox fans, but it was still an awesome time. It was also father - daughter day at the park, so we sat in a section with a bunch of father-daughter pairs. 


Aaron was really in to the game and was pretty happy that we were in prime foul ball territory. I was pretty pleased that they had Reds Ale on tap. 


The Sox lost and Tay Tay and I kept trying to guess at which point our Dad changed the channel. Since it was a family day at the park the kiddos were able to run the bases (I seriously love this). 


And since it was father-daughter day Jillian received a special baseball and we all received hats (except Tay Tay, she politely declined). 

The game was a blast, but I think all of us were still a little tired from the day before. 


We still have another day with Tay Tay, so check back!

Thanksgiving Thursday



For those of you that don't know what Thanksgiving Thursday is, it is the one time during the week where you stop and basically count your blessings. Even if you've had one of those weeks, I promise you can find at least one thing to be thankful for, no matter how big or small.

This week I am thankful for...

  • Scott who took an entire week to be with a group of 15 7-8 year olds. God bless him.
  • Aaron who is beyond excited about his camp this week.
  • Jillian who is proving that anything a boy can do a girl can do better.
  • Family all around us.
  • Appreciation in the job that you do.
  • Sushi across the street.
  • Weekends poolside.

What are you thankful for this week?

"Should we get red or white sangria?"

On Tay Tay's second day we went to EPCOT for the day. We rode Test Track, Ellen's Universe of Energy, Spaceship Earth and so many more. We also had lunch at one of our favorites, Via Napoli. Naturally, Tay Tay and I had some sangria.


We decided on the white since we just had a pitcher or red the night before. I feel like it should be noted I do not normally drink pitchers of sangria two days in a row, but my sister was in town and well...yeah.


It was comical to say the least. It was also really delicious.


I mean, maybe we were giggling a lot after the pitcher, but I'm sure the pizza we ate soaked up a lot of the wine. Well, pretty sure.

We even stopped by the lumberjacks and Aaron took a photo with them for his Tay Tay. I was laughing so hard that the photo ended up blurry (which maybe I didn't notice until later because...well...sangria.).


Somehow we all made it to see the fireworks and scored a sweet spot in Mexico to view them. 

Stay tuned, there are still two more days of Tay Tay's visit to talk about!

Father's Day 2015

Happy Father's Day to all of the father's and single mamas out there! We spent the day doing everything that Scott loved. We started with biscuits with homemade gravy.


After breakfast we went to the gym. This in hind sight was probably not the smartest decision on my part. Scott was fine, but that gravy came back to bite me. I was sick to my stomach after my weight session.

After the gym (and my stomach settled) we hit the pool at Mimi and PawPaw's.


Look how good Scott looks! He is still down more than 60 lbs! 

I made dinner for all of us and basically it was all of his favorite things, pulled pork, beans and my zucchini corn dish.


I hope Scott had a great day and I hope all of you had a fabulous day as well!
