"Security is mostly a superstition. It does not exist in nature, nor do the children of men as a whole experience it. Avoiding danger is no safer in the long run than outright exposure. Life is either a daring adventure, or nothing. " -Helen Keller

A Kirby vacuum cleaner salesman came by my house on Saturday. I was strong and didn't buy a vacuum. Instead, I got a clean floor and a free car vacuum (plugs into the car). I know some other people have had issues with rude sales people or sales people refusing to take a hint but the people that came by our house were extremely polite and professional.

My wonderful, fantabulous parents came up to see us this weekend. While my mom was at a conference on Saturday, my dad came over and finished most of the work on the treehouse (on stilts) he is building for the boys. Check out this amazing play area the boys now have...

Gabe is a total monkey boy. He thought decided this was the perfect position to wash his hands from...

I found him there when I went to check on him because the hand washing was taking too long.

Go give Sheliza at MomFiles some bloggy love. She's an awesome mom, a good friend, Vent day Wednesday is funny as hell, and she constantly has great giveaways (here's the latest giveaway).
