It’s been fun and busy at the Bird house. We found a gorgeous lot this week with everything we would want on it, sports court, swimming pool, play ground, great deck, great view, but the question is do I want to take on a remodel?

It’s livable, but needs some updates. Whether we go for it or let it go, either way its been fun to dream and scheme with the family about our family future and our goals.

Monday- dryer breaks

Tuesday – new dyer get delivered old dryer leaves

Wednesday (4th of July) – Dallin!!! All our red white and blue clothes were in the old dryer (I obviously never separate our clothes) and that dryer is GONE !!!! -literally left the load of laundry in the dryer and they took it.

Which ends us up here, at Target, on a holiday.

I just run in as all the kids are (supposed) to be with Dallin. I am in the dressing room when I hear the 3 letter word “MOM”

“Mom we all have to wee.” OMG I am seriously half naked. I bring them in my dressing room strap diapers on my barefoot, topless children.

My husband text me “hows it going in there?” and this is the pic I sent lol.

I never intended to ever share this publicly bc I think complainers are annoying AF!!!!

I am sharing this bc its moments like this that I have to smile bc this is my life and bc there really is nothing I can do about it.

If there is one thing I have learned in life is that parenting when your are severely outnumbered is unpredictable. Heck Ive been in the ER 3 times this week in 5 days. Stitches, toxic spider bites, etc.

One day I’d love to write a book on my parenting style. I’d call it PULSELESS PARENTING. Maybe one day I will. I use to react to lifes bumps in the road and now through the years I’ve learned to just go with it.

Macklemore says it best in DownTown

Neighbors yelling at me like, you need to slow down
Going thirty-eight, Dan, chill the freak out
Mow your dang lawn and sit the heck down

*I am Dan in the song lol

Our motto in our home is COF (change of focus) – so any and all reminders to just chill the freak out and to not overreact we gravitate too.

On our way home from the hospital, and after Holland got her stitches I asked if she wanted a treat, she said no, but Britsy does. So she surprised him with a ring pop.

Then to end the day we got to play with sweet golden doodle puppies!!!!

The day I get the kid thing down, the first thing I’m going to do is sleep for 8hrs without any interruptions -that hasn’t happened in YEARS! and then Im going to get a puppy for my kiddos.

Holland was a champ! Before we went paddle boarding we covered her stitches with new fresh guaze, covered with the thumb of a rubber glove and covered and sealed with waterproof tape. It was a perfect day.

New Hair: Same Me!

The great thing about my new clip-in Laced hair extensions is that I can take them out as I please.

No need to compliment me I think my husband did a thousand times yesterday. After a weekend of river rafting and camping it was fun to shower up and put this amazing dress on by Eliza J .

We are off to a great week, Holland gets her stitches out (maybe) I am getting on birth control (I’m thinking the iud) and lots of fun in-between!

Hotel Translavania 3, BBQ’s, Classic Skating, Cousins and public pools.

I wish you all a wonderful week !

Love,

ME !!!!!

The waterfalls! It took me all weekend to muster up the courage to go down the three falls. Adrenaline was at a all time high, but we did it! I almost lost it when Hudson fell out of his single tube but he did so great and swam to shore as we were yards behind him.

Not only did we hike the Y for our first time but we carried 3 children up the entire hike. Thank heavens the sky was brilliant and the view was breathtaking. Dallin and I both carried the babies in packs and alternated carrying Holland in our arms or on our backs. Defiantly a night to remember!

TBH we did not go to the lake today, infact we did this Sunday. We took a Sunday Sabbatical due to it being stake conference. Last week I almost passed out bc my dress was too tight, my kids were being extra wild and I was shallow breathing so I needed to leave. Extend church an hr and I’m out. So we took a little break and headed to the lake. Well that was after we chased waterfalls. I looked at my husband and said, “wow imagine if we took a sabbatical every sunday? -how much fun we could jam into the week.

But I also say the same thing about tithing. “imagine if I didn’t give 10% off my earnings back to the Lord?” How much more I would have?

Or would I?

I don’t need more, and I don’t need more fun. It’s just a little idea that slips in every once in a while, you know.

But I believe, not doctrine just Shannon preaching, that bc I do these things, the Sunday worships and the charitable contributions that’s what keeps me focused and helps me think outside of myself. It also helps me not take the other 6 days and 90% for granted.
