A typical good ol' summer day....

So my children like to remind me daily how "lucky" everyone else is that they get to go here and there and ask me what our itinerary will be for the day....and when I respond with "I have no idea, but all I know is right now I have to do a couple loads of laundry, unload the dishwasher and pay some bills before we go anywhere, so don't bug me!" So they tell me they are going to go make a "list" of all that they want to do when I am done. And I say "That's a great idea...thinking it would be things they wanted to do at home, and "shooed" them off hoping that that activity would take up at least a half hour or so...
And unfortunately 5 minutes later they are handing me these crazy lists...

Here is Fischer's List...(You gotta love the last one Wolmort "Wal Mart")
And then my cute little Merrick's List...Seriously guys, Why Wal Mart????
So this is what happens when we don't fulfill any thing on their lists and end up staying at home all day...GOOD TIMES!!! Poor "Fish"...he just might be seeing this picture again...(when his sisters try to blackmail him) haha

Jen - Seriously - what a sad Summer day for the Peterson kids - all they wanted was a little bit of your time at Walmart! Give it to them! Wol-mart is the Best!

Those lists are so funny. The kids are so creative in the last picture. I can't do anything but laugh and laugh.

The pic is definitely better enlarged :) I fear for my little boy Cougar when he is old enough for his sisters to dress up!! Luckily 2 of mine went back to school on Monday so life (an chaos) has slowed down a bit from our frantic summer schedule!!

Are those panties hanging around her neck!!?? Seriously, would it kill you to take your children to Wal-Mart, buy them a couple goldfish, and a coloring book?? That would knock a bunch of things off of their lists, and buy you some time off!!
