it really was magical

Excuse my absence. 
The past two weeks were full of stomach bug sharing, house buying, birthday celebrating craziness. 
I turned 32 and we took our first real family vacation. 
The little Ferguson ladies had their first airplane ride, first trip to the beach and first Dineyland experience. 
Hayes stayed behind for sanity's sake. 
I'm not one of those weird Disney people. 
No matching shirts, no detailed plans, no pergola in our backyard with mouse ears.
 But I do see the magic. 
It was fun to see the girls so very happy and I might have teared up a little when we met a certain princess. 
Today we're on a Disney Detox which includes the reintroduction of the word 'no' and weaning Hayes from his short stint as only child.

monsters help people

Once while at Target we heard a loud sound from the freezer section. 
I told the girls it was a monster. 
 Because I'm a great parent, I told them if they stayed close to me the monster would stay away. 
 This whole idea totally freaked Ruth out but she was so perfect for the rest of our shopping trip. 
 She still remembers because kids remember everything. 
I now have the most perfectly behaved children in all of Target. 
Thank you Target monster!

fair day

I'm pretty sure I'm the only human that has ever left the state fair hungry. 
The kids (plus Travis) ate all my goodies.
