Last Sunday we "missed" (some say "skipped", whatever, it's all semantics, just don't tell) church and attended Critterfest 2011, so daddy could go with us. It was a blast! Both boys had fun, and so did mommy and daddy.

Here's Austin, obviously excited about the day's events...

First, we had to visit the bubbles because they're Jackson's favorite.

Then we found some baby crocodiles. They were just 1 month older than Austin.

The snakes were next. Not mommy's personal favorite.

We found a craft booth and Jackson wanted a tiger mask. Daddy made Austin a little monkey mask.

And then the fishies, soo many fishies...

Don't judge the hair, it was 112 degrees that day. It was HOT! I even had make-up on, but it literally melted off. Lovely.

And more fish...

Even Austin liked the fish.

Lions, Tigers, and Bears, OH MY! Well, really there were only Tigers, but we did see a bear being walked into the building. Apparently, the bear got lost because we never saw him again.

We tried to get Jackson to feed the goats when we first got to Critterfest because we knew it was going to be scorching outside, but he just screamed like a little girl. My little man isn't so brave sometimes, he gets that from me. But daddy took him out in the sweltering 112 degree sun and he finally fed the goats. Mostly because he saw 2 little girls do it first, but hey, he still conquered his fear!

Critterfest was a lot of fun! Maybe next time we'll find that elusive bear...

It's baaaaaaaaaack... The Nuffer Family Summer Camp 2018

Man, it's been awhile.  A long while.

The blog is baaaaaack! And so is the Nuffer Family Summer Camp!!!!!

The NFSC is going to be pretty different this year.  The big boys need to be challenged so much more than a few crafts and story books like when I first started the summer camp many moons ago.  With that said, I don't really know exactly what it will look like because I have to test the waters to see what interests them and what doesn't. My mom gave each of the boys a Little Passports membership, so we'll be using those in our weekly themes as well.  I have a preschooler, a second grader, and a fifth grader- needless to say, it should be interesting.  but no big deal, right?

Every day they'll spend their mornings doing some chores, spending some time outside, reading independantly, doing a little work in grade-level appropriate workbooks, doing an NFSC activity or two, and I think I'm going to teach the older boys to write in cursive. Phew!

Brian and Whitney get married!

Our family has been waiting for this day for well over a year!  My little brother, Brian, finally married Whitney a couple weeks ago.  Such a wonderful weekend!
I mean, how cute are they?!

The first night was the rehearsal, of course, but I didn't get many pictures.
I do have a fun little story, though...
Jackson was the ring bearer, and Whitney wanted him to walk arm and arm with the flower girl, Delaney.  But, he wouldn't do it.  I thought maybe it was because he didn't know her before that night, but no, that's way too simple for Jackson.  Jackson didn't want to walk down the aisle with Delaney because he thought if he walked down the (wedding) aisle with this stranger-girl, he'd be married to her!  bahahahahahahahaha!  That is hysterical!
Once we assured him that they would not be married if he walked arm and arm with this (super sweet) little girl, he was totally fine with it.
But look at their little faces.  And their little fists.  Hahahahaha!  This is t…

A Whole Lot of Random...

You guys know that my children are crazy.  And hilarious.  And random.
So here's a bunch of random moments from the Nuffer Nest.  Enjoy.
Sometimes, you just feel like Yoshi.

And sometimes, a tiny person steals my phone and takes 458 selfies that look just like this:

And sometimes, mom and grandma spend way too much time at Costco.

Other times, you smash your finger in a door and have to take a "quick" trip to urgent care. At least it wasn't broken.

And sometimes, life just gets hairy...

Other times, the Captain Underpants underwear you just got for your birthday has a cape, so you have to show it off by not wearing pants.

Sometimes, you're as cute as can be when you get a free apple at the grocery store.
(You guys, look at that little round belly- I just want to tickle and squeeze him!)

And sometimes, your brother helps you hang on when life gets tough.

Other times, they're there to give you a hug.

Sometimes, your future is so bright, you have to wear shades.
