Life has been pretty busy for us lately, there's no denying that. Brock and I work wednesday through sunday. I start work at 4 am until 12:30, I get home then Brock gets ready for work and he runs to do any estimates he has before going into work at 2:30, then he gets home after ten where he must promptly go to bed because the kids will be waking him up before 7. Then on our weekends Brock usually has both days filled with jobs and estimates.

Yep, it's busy. So on my weekend with the kids I try to have lot's of fun and get that quality time in.

We started our day at Chuck E Cheese's. Ten dollars in tokens really lasts forever there, good cheap fun for the kids!

Then we had a yummy lunch at The Olive Garden

Followed by the splash park, the ultimate in free kid fun. Even I can't resist my inner child screaming at me to run through the water with the kids.

Life may be busy, but it's so sweet!!

My favorite thing to do when the kids are napping

My absolute favorite hobby right now is scrapbooking. I really thought it wasn't for me and I would never get into it, but my friend Kristine got me hooked and we've been scrapping together ever since.

I had boxes of old pictures that I cherished, but never actually looked through. Scrapping gives the photo's a story, something you might have otherwise forgotten.
It's also inspired my photography. Now i'm taking photo's of everyday moments and the simple things in life instead of just holidays, it's the day to day stuff that I don't want to forget.
