Heart Attack Inducing Little Turkey...

If I have a heart attack before I'm 30, this Little Turkey is why...

Hail is fearless around the water. He can actually swim, which makes me even more nervous when we're at the pool/lake. My Momma always said, "There's nothing more dangerous than a two year old boy." And I'm believing that statement now, more than ever.


I was having a hard enough time letting my big kids jump off the "plack-ferm."
And then Hail decided to venture up that way....

And insisted on going alone, since he's a "big boy." All two and a half years of him...



You may notice one member of The Storm missing from those shots. Lightning, though most definitely our toughest when it comes to handling pain (and giving it) prefers to relax in the water. He reserves his super hero stunts for the pool....

While Flash Flood hangs out in the shade and calls me over from time to time to kiss all over those sweet rolls....
Hope y'all are enjoying your summer as much as we are!
I've got to go take my daily baby aspirin....

I would think the combination of the 4 boys...well, 5 including Bert, would do it for sure ;) Try a daily dose of Fish Oil pills too...hear those are good for the heart!

Girl, I hear you on that. Addison's fearlessness keeps me on edge too often. Looks like so much fun though!

We probably are related. And your kids' cousins, along with peeing in trashcans and uninviting each other to their (non existant) bday parties, also dump entire boxes of cheerios out on the floor. And ever since I read your entire blog last year, I don't even feel bad about not sweeping them up.

BTW, I've never seen five kids that look more alike, in my entire life. That last pic of Flash? He looks JUST LIKE A HUDSON. Weird.
