I realized something looking through these pictures from last weekend...I like to open my mouth really big when someone points a camera at me, or so it would appear.
what's my deal? I have no idea! Really, I didn't even know I did that until this very moment.
any who, here are a couple pictures of the fun we had. My Man and I don't get away by ourselves very often, but when we do, it's like we just went back in time 10 years.
Really, we act like crazo teenagers, but I love it!
We laugh, take funny pictures, talk about funny things, make strange noises, and eat yummy food. This weekend was SO last minute, that we had NO plans. When we got to our destination we had dinner at Olive Garden, YUM! Our waitress was very nice.
She came to our table and said "Hi, my name is Rebel, and I live up to it!"
 I started laughing, but then stopped, because I realized she was serious (and that she could crush me if she wanted to).

I know this is FAR from a wild and crazy thing to do with your spouse, but hey, this was really more about relaxation anyway. I have been wanting to go through the LDS Church History museum for a long time, and figured this was our chance to take our time, and really enjoy it. So we did.

 In this shot I really can't tell if I'm supposed to be preaching to the choir, or belting out a good one?

 After the museum we were walking down town, looking for somewhere to have lunch, and we found ourselves in the middle of a protest. I have not a clue what they were protesting, but they meant business!

 This is an "art display", in case you weren't sure....because I wasn't. The artist was striving to capture the natural movement of a single blade of grass against the elements. I've always wondered what it would feel like to be a little bug in the tall I know:D

Last but not least, we found the pepprage farm Thrift store. Craig is either so excited he is going to cry, or really in need of a bathroom....don't know.

Time for another weekend, hooray!

wagon ride

We had a few moments of sunshine yesterday, so we ran outside to enjoy it.
Sweet little Layla decided to give Benson a "wide in da wagon" as she put it. It was priceless!
She was pulling with all her might, and moving at a snails pace. Benson kept looking at me, you know, the look that says "don't just stand there taking my picture, help me!". At least that's what I took the look to mean, but when I went to "save him" he didn't want to go.

So, I sat back and let them have their fun.

These two go together like tom & Jerry!
They might do their best to get the other in trouble, drive each other crazy....and sometimes the rest of us in the process, but what would they ever do without each other? sometimes they can't seem to live together, so I'll separate them, and pretty soon I'll find one or the other sneaking in to be back together.
They are biggest rivals, and best friends all at once. What a pair they are.

 Here is Layla trying to make Carter feel better when he didn't find many Easter eggs

 playing with my phone, taking pictures of themselves

hanging out at the park, laughing at some crazy person.

They remind me of my arch enemy turned best friend...Paul.
We LOVED to get each other in trouble, make each other cry, beat the other at anything and everything, and call the meanest name. But, if anyone else tried to do any of those things to us, we stood up for the other with all the loyalty and love in the world.

I'm Thankful for big brothers.

p.s. I've been sewing:) and soon will have a tutorial for your enjoyment. stay tuned.

This weekend I was driving.
I got to spend some time in the car with my honey:) He took a couple days off to hang out with me, and chillaxe together. We didn't have a plan, just a sitter, a car, and an open road:)

I dreamt, laughed, and loved with the window down.

Did you have your window down this weekend too?
