Oh, to be Young Again!

The weather was gorgeous this weekend. It was the perfect day to play outside and burn some energy!
 The boys LOVE to play outside!
 They learned some gymnastics...
 ...and did some push-ups!
 They jumped, and jumped...
 ...and jumped some more!
 Pretended to be their favorite Avenger and shot their bow and arrow...
...and just when you thought they were about to crash, they got another wind and off they went! Oh, to be young again.

I'm BAAAACCCKKK!!!! (said in a creepy Poltergeist voice!)

I'm back, been gone for 6 months...but I'm back! Blogger and Google couldn't keep this girl down. So much has changed since I last posted....Jax has started Kindergarten, both boys have had birthday parties, Halloween, Christmas, New Years......seriously, so much! I'm just going to pick up where we are in life and start our story again.

For those that don't know me, I am Shannon from The Mommy Diaries. I love blogging and I'm excited to start a new this new one. I decided that this first post will be a brief (or maybe not) introduction for you to get to know a little about me. So, for your reading enjoyment, some very random facts about yours truly.

*First and foremost, I love the Lord. I am the woman I am today because of his amazing grace. If you have any questions, please email me. I would love to share my Jesus with you.

*My sorority mascot was a squirrel. Yes, a squirrel. Not something mighty like a lion or sweet like an angel. We were squirrels.....and I LOVED it. I brake for squirrels (but I am not a fan of the one that lives in our attic).

*I was a lifeguard during high school and college. It was the perfect job! If I could do it professionally, I would.

*I don't mind smelling skunks. (I know, strange!)
*I watch a lot of TV. We love Big Bang Theory and Criminal Minds. Two total ends of the spectrum. Funny and carefree vs. dark and scary. I feel smart when I watch Big Bang. And hello...Spencer Reid. Need I say more. That is one cute genius.

*I decided to run a half-marathon 2 years ago. I am the slowest human being on the planet, but I am proud that I did it. I am working on my fitness and will hopefully do another one this year (and maybe not be quite as slow).
*These 2 monsters make life so fun and not boring in the least. Be on the lookout for weekly Jackson and Hudson-ism. They say some crazy stuff!
*Jason is my better half. We have been married for 6 years and he isn't tired of me yet. He is a keeper. Who else would dress up like this....
...and not give me too much lip. Love my little Dog the Bounty Hunter!

*I like to smile. Smiling's my favorite. =)

So, that's me and that's it for tonight. Can't wait to get back to blogging.
