Lessons learned this weekend!

I must admit that this 4th of July weekend was not the most fun 4th of July weekend I've ever had.  Personally I thinked it sucked a little!!!  The weather pretty much ruined half of our weekend and the other half there just wasn't shit for us to do because the humidity sucked the life right out of us.  The only positive thing was that we got to spend time together....which is always good and made up for the fact that everything else sucked ass! 
We were supposed to take our boat out on the 4th but the weather fucked that up but we did get to spend the afternoon with Nat, Joe and the kids.  Can't go wrong watching the three terrorists rip shit up!!!

And then today the weather was supposed to be nice so we thought "hey...yesterday was a bust lets take the boat out today."  So we did.  We waited for 45 minutes to launch the damn thing and then putted around for 20 minutes until Nat got there with the kids and loaded them on. 
Here is where I learned four important lessons.  Lessons that I will take with me for the rest of my days!
1.  Never ever trust the fuckin weather douche holes!!!  I already knew that but I was being optimistic!
2.  Never and I mean never take a 9 month old out on a boat when she has had NO nap.  Not a good idea...not a good idea at all.  Apparently they turn into this whole other non human thing!!  And then when it comes time for bed she throws herself around in the crib and terrorizes her poor little bear.  Monster!!
3.  When you see that the sky is black and the tornado sirens go might be a good idea to head back to the dock.  (This one is acutally Justin's lesson....when your wife tells you that she is having a panick attack because of said wall cloud get the hell back to the dock)
4.  Flip flops are not a good thing to run in when you are trying to out run the typhoon that has just attacked I had one kid and Nat had two so we were trying real hard not to eat pavement and make it back to the truck for some kind of shelter from the bowling ball size rain that was pelting us. 
And No.....we had not been swimming!!!  This was a good part of the kids first boating the truck.
Instead of fireworks this year Justin and I went to see Eclipse and now I'm reobsessed with it!  Why is it that after I watch these movies I...1. think they are real 2. wish I could be them and 3. want to do some X rated things with Mr. Edward Cullen??   Yeah I'm almost 29 and I love the whole vamp fantasy.   Sad I know....but this is my excitement....besides poopy didn't think I would go through a post without poopy diapers!!!
Hope the rest of you all had a super fun weekend!!!!  Maybe next year!!!


  1. You have to love when husband's have their own agendas! lol! Love the movie too, but I am aJacob lover!!!! I have a pre-tween daughter so I can use her as my excuse of why we were at the midnight release of it last week!!!

  2. HA! You just crack me up with your honesty. I love it!

    I'm so sorry that all happened - but you're right, maybe next year :)

    I hope your week goes better than the weekend!!

  3. Sorry, it rained you guys out! We had gorgeous weather..apart from the hot as hell melting us all part:) We were lucky though we were on the we alternated between death gripping heat and freezing air conditioning. It made for a nice relief and a super sized headache. In the end, it was all good. Chalked full of s'mores, pools, games, fireworks, lots of good food, and I'm pretty sure a hefty 30 lb. weight gain for the weekend! Damn, BBQ holiday food! Mr. Cullen looks mighty fine in Remember ME ( I watched it yesterday..while trying to get the girls down for a nap) but the movie ends craptastically! But he looks good!

  4. Oh man Nikki, that totally sucks. I hope it is a much better 4th next year.
    LOL, I am 36 and I love that Edward Cullen too! Wowza! :)

  5. I'm sorry you had a shitty weather day and the whole boating experience didn't pan out like you thought. I think those asshats just flip a coin to say if it's going to rain or not because they have no clue what the hell is going on.

    I went and saw Eclipse on Sunday and have to say it was the BEST one yet.

  6. I'm 31 and want to do dirty things to Edward and Jacob. What is wrong with me?

  7. I hate it when weather messes things up! So hard to get over it. Want to throw a tantrum just like a child!

  8. I'm 32 and I want to do dirty things to Jasper. Do we need to form a support group?

  9. Next year will be better... because honestly, could it get much worse?! And now I feel bad that I was complaining about the wind we had on Sunday night during the fireworks.

    Glad you were able to end the night with Edward... I mean Eclipse!

  10. I don't even know where to start here. Don't think I ever do. Bowling ball sized rain? LMAO your posts crack me the fuck up everytime.
