Mommy fail, Daddy success

Today the weather is gorgeous! It's cloudy and the high is only 69. I had the brilliant idea to go to the corn maize and take some fall pictures with the boys, pretending that Texas isn't really sunny and hot still this time of year. So we get the boys all cuted up in their new fall clothes and we told Jackson we're going to see some animals (which he loves, although they scare him to death) and headed out to the corn maize. The whole ride we can hear Jackson in the back saying, "go see animals, go see animals, go see animals", but when we get there they were closed. DOH! Mommy should have checked when they were open before we left. We told Jackson that the animals are sleeping fully expecting a complete meltdown, but there wasn't one. I already felt terrible because I told him all morning that we were going to see animals and now I feel even worse because he handled not seeing animals so well. On the way home Daddy thinks of some animals that are outside by a friend's house that we can drive by and see, but on the way there we drove passed the Science Spectrum, which gave Daddy another great idea to just take the boys to play there. Daddy success! So here are some pictures of our impromptu visit to the Science Spectrum this morning. The boys had a great time and we got to see some animals anyway. Actually, we got there just in time for the reptile show:

Then, of course, we had to visit the fishies:

And Austin's favorite part, watching the ball maze:

It might have been a Mommy fail, but the day was really nice.

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.
