Lovely winter days

It has been absolutely gorgeous the last couple of days in Lubbock!  We've taken advantage of the beautiful January weather by spending some time at the park.  Monday we decided to surprise the boys with a picnic at the park, and then letting them play and have fun!  Of course, they LOVED it!  All night the kept saying, "thank you for taking us the play today!".  The park is not something we usually do in the winter, especially not on school nights.  School nights are busy!  But I couldn't resist the wonderful weather!

Picnic time!
Daddy and Jackson
Jackson wanted to make funny faces!

Mommy and Austin
Austin wanted to smile.

Harrison was gumming down some bread too, but I didn't get pictures of him at the picnic.
Next, we got to feed the ducks!
We fed the ducks 2 days in a row.  The boys were stoked!
All my loves feeding the ducks (sort of)-

All 3 boys, Harrison laughed and yelled at the ducks!  ;)

More bread.  More ducks.

On the second day, Harrison needed a hat to protect his snow white practically bald head.
He wasn't too happy about it at first-

But he warmed up to it and even kept it on the whole time!  We just had to convince him that he looked absolutely adorable in it.  ;)
Fun fact:  This Boston hat has been worn by all 3 boys.

And, of course, there was LOTS OF PLAYING!

They might have been a little annoyed that I kept stopping them to take pictures though...

Harrison had a great time too!  I wanted to take him down the slide a couple times before we left last night, but it got late without us realizing it so in our hurry to leave I forgot to take him on the slide.  But today is supposed to beautiful again, so maybe today...

I love this next picture- Harrison was looking up at daddy and you can just see the adoration he has for his daddy!

And after 2 fun afternoons full of playing and laughing, Harrison sums up how we all felt-

Exhausted!  But happy.

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.
