1. Neil Armstrong's dream: His grand-kids will one day walk on the moon without the need for spacesuits.

2. It took 238,900 miles before the kids stopped asking their mother, "Are we there yet?"

3. Girl in Pink: "If the moon had water, this would TOTALLY be my hot tub!"

4. Daughter in Purple: "In NASA's history, 12 people have walked on the moon and they were all boys. My mom brought two girls here in one afternoon. My mother >NASA.

5. Jeremy grasped tightly to the flag pole, wondering what the repercussions were going to be when he told his sisters the truth: He accidentally left all of their food at home.

Fly on the Wall: June 2015

It's that time again!  Welcome to the June Fly on the Wall Group Challenge. This month, 17 amazing bloggers and I are describing what it would be like if you were to take a peek inside our homes....



Have a "look" around mine, and then go visit the other blogger's pages. There's always something fun, sentimental, or better yet, embarrassing going on. It's like your house, only we're admitting to the craziness. You have our permission. Buzz on over!


Cast:
Me
The man
Alexandra, the eldest 
C., The middle (son, 17)
J., The youngest (son, 10)
***
Sum-sum-summertime:
The man's awesome parents took the boys to Jackson Hole, Wyoming for a few days.** No matter how old the kids get, I still find myself worrying over their safety.  Even when I know my children are in the best of hands, my anxious mind still finds scenarios to worry about.

Imagine then, how fun it was to have this texting conversation with my sarcastic son:
Me: How's it going?
C.: So much fun!
Me: Great! What's been your favorite thing so far?
C.: Getting lost with my brother in the woods
C.: buying a large knife
C.: running with scissors
C.: watching J. drive a boat
C.: climbing a cliff-like wall 
C.: watching J. throw up in a public pool
C.: Ok, so ONE of those things didn't happen.
Me: What???
C.: Sorry Mom. We're losing Wi-fi...

Two guys "driving" the boat.  

J. atop what looks like a VERY tall wall :)

**The boys had an amazing time. Both came home with their heads full of fish-tale stories and hearts full of wonderful memories.  With great relief to me, their bodies came back to their momma fully intact. :)

***
The man and I recently spent some time in San Diego. We sent the kids a photo of us from the airport.  When I looked at it, I realized we are THAT old, married couple. The one who take selfies TOGETHER, who (un)intentionally start dressing alike and saying things like "WE sent a photo"...

***
I half-way joked with the kids about the trip being my "Mental Health" vacation.  I always find peace and clarity when I'm near the water. I was certain I would return from this journey with more sanity...


...but then I saw Superman. I swear, I really saw him.

Food Quotes heard around the house this month: (Because at our home, food apparently equals love)

"That pot roast has been in the slow cooker longer than I've been awake. Yay summer vacation!"

"Blue Sour Patch kids are delicious. Blue Gummi Bears are just plain wrong."

"Day-old Churros must be an oxymoron."

"You're not coming to the movies with us?" (everyone high fives) "The extra butter possibilities are going to bring tears to Dad's eyes."

Alex: (via text) "Are you letting dad get popcorn? I want to support his health, but if he's having some I also need to support my love of butter and dreams."

"Yes I'm out of creamer and Yes, I put an old marshmallow peep in my coffee. Mornings are hard."

and finally,

The Man: "Drumsticks! We haven't had those in a really long time."
Me: "Eh. You know I don't like chicken on-the-bone."
The Man: "Not that kind. The ice cream. With the nuts on top? You know, the REAL drumsticks."

16 - Spatulas on Parade May 2014.jpg

1. After the honeymoon, Cinderella left yet another shoe behind.


2. As the marathon runners came near, George had a choice. He could save his wife's shoes or his ham and cheese sandwich.


3. Harold was comfortable wearing one shoe and he didn't care who knew it.


4. Before he tripped, Harry's Cloak of Invisibility was a smashing success.


5. Remember the old lady who lived in a shoe? This is her beach house.
