Austin turned 2!  He loves dinosaurs so I thought a dinosaur party would be fun.  We had it at the local science museum where they had dinosaur themed activities.  Each child got to pick which dinosaur they wanted to be and learn about for the day.  I made them each a card telling them all about their dinosaur, a mini replica of their dinosaur, and a cool matching necklace.  And everyone got an official safari hat to complete their gear- though, only Jackson was interested in wearing the hat.

Austin trying on his gear.  He wouldn't keep the hat on, but you can kind of see his dinosaur birthday shirt.  Pretty appropriate for the day.

Food table:  Chick Fil A nuggets, fruit/veggie/cheese tray, and dinosaur toanails (or Bugles) 

The cupcake tower.  I added the dinosaurs and chocolate rocks.  Unfortunately, Austin tipped over the tray of cupcakes (in their container, thank goodness) so they were a little messy.

Great grandpa got there early so he and Austin waited patiently while we set up.  I'm so glad he got there early because Austin was antsy and he took grandpa on some walks to see the fishies.

After food and cupcakes and presents it was time to dig for fossils!

The science museum also provided a live bearded dragon lizard for the children to learn about and pet.  It was really cool, but I didn't get pictures.

I finally remembered to give everyone their party favors- of all the parties I've thrown for my boys I always forget to give out the thank you treats.  Every. Single. Time.  But this year I remembered!  Success!  Each child got a cool dinosaur with dinosaur goodies and dinosaur eggs.  Yum!

After the party everyone got to have fun in the museum.  Jackson and Maggie trotted off to play while holding hands.  I think Jackson always chooses girls for friends just so he can hold their hand.  ;)

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.
