I have a slight obsession with Instagram.  I find myself taking pictures and seeing what pictures other people have taken all the time.  It lets you in on the silly, simple, most memorable times throughout your day. If your like me, I don't always have time to grab the camera  but I do usually have my cell phone very close by. Not sure what that says about me but lets just leave it at that. 

So, here I am linking up with Jeannett from Life Rearranged for her InstaFriday. I was giddy when I first saw this. Such a fun idea. Here is my week in instagram. Show me some grace I am learning as I go. Picture quality not so good! :)

The boys got to watch my mommas dog. I had NO idea they would 
love it so much. Guess who has asked almost everyday for a dog?!

While watching the Olympics this week I decided to revamp our mantel. 
Clear of the clutter. NEW MOTTO: Simple is better. 

The boys love playing downstairs but my sweet Cole bear can play a mean game of 
air hockey. He brings me to tears with how excited he gets. 

Just when you think you know what to expect from this boy...
He wakes up begging to put his shark costume on. Yes, it was 90+ degrees out.

I guess Mason was inspired by the shark costume. 
The next day he wanted to put on his Fighter Pilot outfit before Chris came home. 
He said, "Do you think Dad will think I look cool as a fighter pilot?" 

Yesterday I took the boys to the park. We packed up bikes and scooters and off we went. Notice the circa 1990 tennis racquets? They are Chris' from when he was a kid. The boys loved them and played for 2 hours. 

This boy. Be still my heart. Last night I laced up my shoes and headed out for a run. Before I left the house he was holding this mustache in one hand and a fiber one bar in the other. This boy makes my heart happy.

Today, I took the boys to get haircuts and then off to the grocery we went. 
This was all of our treat for making it through!

Happy Friday, Friends! 
I would love to follow YOU on in instagram.
