Zoo Fun and Funky Feet

The little dudes and I met a friend and her 20 month old b/g twins at the zoo yesterday. It was to hot this summer so we hadn't been since spring time. Naturally we picked the only 90 degree day this week and I chose to wear a black t-shirt. That's how I roll. It was hot. The boys liked the playground best of all. It's hard to see a lot of the animals from their stroller and they are still young enough they don't really care about them. I managed to take a few pictures at the playground. Barely. My guys like to go in opposite directions. They are not those kids that stay together and play. I envy those parents.














While we were at the zoo my doctor called. I had been the day before and had some X-Rays. I have been having some numbness and tingling that progresses into sharp pain in my toes and the pads of both my feet since I had Olivia (4 1/2 years). Last summer towards the end of my pregnancy with Owen and Carter I started having a lot of pain in the heel of my left fo…

Football and the Harvest Festival

We are big OSU football fans around here. Mr. Mayer graduated from there and so did most of our inner circle. I didn't, but I married into it. Diva is a die hard "Go Pokes" fan and will say anything (including Hooters) orange is the "Go Pokes." She also puts her guns up anytime she sees orange or something OSU. Shrek and Donkey are learning how to raise their arms when someone says "Go Pokes." Silly I know, but it's cheap entertainment. Now that college football is in full swing we spend our Saturday's cheering on our team. This past Saturday was no different. The Pokes played A&M. They squeaked out a victory. Wahoo! We had friends over to watch the game. We ate to much food. Maybe we had a few pre-festival beverages. It was a great afternoon.

A few weeks ago I had seen my favorite bar ever McNellie's advertising their Harvest Beer Festival. They gather a bunch of micro brewers together and set up tents outside and you go from tent to …

WhooHoo!!

So...the day arrived. It's been months in the making. We had one VERY excited little girl. Diva got to go to the Taylor Swift concert. Diva LOVES Taylor Swift. She tells people that Taylor is her sister and she can sing most of the songs word for word from memory. Diva had a new "costume" to wear. Aunt Bets and I went and picked up Amy and Akelah and we went to dinner~sushi. Another very exciting event. They even had kid sushi and kid chopsticks. Very exciting! After dinner we head to the BOK Center with our tickets in hand. Diva made sure that I let her carry her own ticket inside. We go and find our seats. Then Diva and I go for another potty run (does every one's 4 year old pee every 5 minutes!). The line was long. Diva had to go VERY BAD. She was dancing and jumping and doing everything in her power not to pee her pants. Those that know me know that we have really struggled with potty training and Diva peeing in her pants. Her trying to hold it and not pee her …

The Big O-N-E...round 2

Okay, so, apparently I am being ubber productive today. Weird. I uploaded the pics from the boys actual birthday. Again, being the super creative person I desire to be I made them a funfetti cake mix cake. Mr. Mayer and I bought them some little chairs from Pottery Barn Kids for their gifts. The best thing about the chairs for the first week was that we could put Owen in the chair and he didn't know how to get out. He would just sit there until someone got him. We had friends over for dinner that night and we grilled hamburgers and hot dogs. I'm going to tell on myself now. Papa Brad came over for dinner. I was making him a plate and made him a burger and gave to him. A minute later he said "Jayna. Thanks for the burger, but could I have meat on it?" OMG! I forgot to put meat on his burger. He had everything else~no meat. Gah!!! That's typical for me. At least I remember to feed the children. I hope.














Crafty

Those who know me know that I really want to be crafty. I see things and think "Oh, I could make that." The sad reality is that I don't have a crafty bone in my body. I try really hard, but most things come out looking like one of Diva's art projects. Mr. Mayer's default response it "Just go buy it." Grrr....that defeats the point.
Aunt Bets showed me a ribbon wreath off of Pinterestthat I really liked. Again, I decided "Oh, I could make that." So I did. And.....it turned out pretty good. I did run out of the patterned ribbon and had to group 4 of the orange ribbons together. I still think it looks good. I may correct it if I ever get to Hobby Lobby for supplies.





The Big O-N-E

Okay, as promised I have the pictures uploaded from the party. Their birthday falls on Labor Day weekend so I had their party the Saturday after. The day of we had some friends over for dinner. I have some pictures from that I will be uploading one of these days.
We did presents first. Thank goodness these boys had a big sister to help with that. She was all over it. And, yes, the boys are wearing their custom 90210 (their birthday) onesies. The backs have their name and birth order. They are my favorites I think. Thanks Aunt Jackie. Cake followed the tearing of paper. Our good friend DJ made them their little bear cakes. Owen dove right into the cake. He LOVED it. Carter was terrified of the bear. At one point someone moved the cake closer to him and he jumped. We finally had to turn the cake around and break off an ear for him to eat it. I guess he doesn't like his food looking at him. And, I still don't know how to do anything more with my pictures than this. So bear with m…
