#tbt to this time last year. not much has changed... the messes have just gotten bigger. πŸ˜† yesterday the boys emptied the entire junk drawer, climbed (up a high chair) into the fridge and threw things out, scattered 1,000 papers all over my bedroom and were cuter than ever in the process. πŸ˜… at least none of yesterday’s messes involved diapers. #win πŸ™ŒπŸΌ tell me i’m not alone!!! these boys keep me sooo busy. πŸ˜‚ #buticantgetenoughofthem 😍 (and yes.... sometimes i photograph them making giant messes instead of stop them. #memories)

Really missing my parents house (childhood home) looking at this pic. it’s a miracle that i snapped a shot of them all in one place because they roamed all over mom and dad’s huge yard, creating some real childhood magic last week. this was the first year going back home that i realized how important it is that we visit every summer. it was so nostalgic as i remembered making similar childhood memories in my grandmothers yard when i was scarlett’s age. no screens, the smell of sunblock and lots of fresh fruit and popsicles while wearing swimsuits on the back deck. i feel like all of our “simple summer” dreams come true. β˜€οΈπŸ’¦ also.... no idea why or how ames got into that chair. πŸ˜‚ #summer2018 #childhood #nostalgia #nothingdownaboutit

•giveaway• you guys.... i’m really excited about this because i’ve finally found an incredible quality suit for my short torso! i can wear a cute one-piece because it’s adjustable in length and is totally flattering in all the right places. πŸ™ŒπŸΌ when you’re constantly jumping in to grab a kid, πŸ’¦ chasing them from exiting the pool area (sometimes slipping maybe...) and trying not to look like the hot-mess-poolside-mom you are... (speaking for myself πŸ™‹πŸΌ‍♀️) a good suit with all the support is kind of a must. πŸ‘ŒπŸΌi went into @shopdmfashion and was blown away by the quality of their suits and how helpful they were in finding me something that i felt comfortable in. so... let’s give one of you one. πŸ™ŒπŸΌ all you need to do is... •like this post
•follow shopdmfashion and us
•tag friends for extra entireties
good luck ladies! and remember... when you slip while chasing your kid, gracefully roll into the pool and pretend it never happened... 🀫🀷🏼‍♀️

Woke up 20 minutes ago (10:45am). πŸ˜† we pulled in at about 2am and all of us slept hard. we spent 12 hours together in the car yesterday and i can still honestly say that i love road trips and would do it again next week. 🚐 there is definitely a some whining, we always eat garbage on the road and the car looks like it was hit by a tornado (on the inside)... but i love being in one place, all strapped in and ready for little adventures with my family. what’s is the longest road trip that you’ve taken with your family?? i love hearing people’s stories!

It feels so good to be back home... where my roots are, in places filled with memories and showing my kids where i spent my childhood. last night we went to the ball park that my dad took my sisters and i to many times growing up so we could relive those days... but with our now 9 (all together) kids and husbands. at one point ames threw a huge beach ball over the fence and onto the field where a player had to get it and throw it back to us. πŸ˜† it’s going to be hard going back to my current home tomorrow. (swipe left to see the original crew) tell me where you grew up. i love seeing where our cyber friends are from! 🏑 #backhome #northerncagirl #familytime #nothingdownaboutit

Going through old memories of this time a couple years ago. ♥️ it was around my 30th birthday and we were staying at @thegrandamerica as a family to celebrate. scarlett insisted we pretend that we were a royal family in a castle because it was “the most prettiest place” we’d ever been. the five of us had a big sleepover in one room which i thought would turn into a disaster. instead it became one of my fondest family memories. they say to “go big” for your 30th and what better way to “go big” than to spend it with your favorite people? i’m not typically much of a birthday person... but what are your favorite ways to spend your birthday as an adult? mine is just around the corner... 🎈#summerblondies #memories #nothingdownaboutit

Gracie and welles... 5 days apart. both surprise diagnosis’ of down syndrome at birth. both turned their families worlds upside down with fear and worry. both of their mommas cried for days when rethinking their families futures. and both sets of parents spent the weekend almost in tears while conversing about the blessings and miracles they’ve been for both families. gosh.... ain’t #nothingdownaboutit #letlifesurpriseyou πŸ’•

Sunday family selfie! technically taken saturday, but hey... check out that blue water. 😍 left friday for our ca trip to visit my family where i grew up! we made a pit stop for two nights in truckee at @megfield’s amazing cabin, spending time with more of our down syndrome community family (i swear welles put us into the best family-club on earth #dsfamily). πŸ’“ now, we are headed to my childhood home where my kids can run wild with cousins in a place my parents catered to grandkid fun (you’ll see if you watch my stories, it’s the party place)! anyone else have plans to travel to nostalgic childhood places this summer? i hope so... πŸ’• #tahoe to #sacramento #nothingdownaboutit

When pals like @lifewithrubyandconner come to visit... it’s a competition to see who can hurl themselves into the ball pit the greatest amount of times. πŸ˜† i think conner won. #thesepals #thebestkind #nothingdownaboutthem
