i love thunderstorms

it's been dark in the afternoons this past week. the familiar sound of rolling thunder hits just before three and by 3:30 the sun is tucked under dark clouds, taking a snooze right along with avery, ashton and ian. i love these afternoons:

coffee.
rain.
laundry.
blogs.

family walks are a summer evening fave.

this time we had a mission: go pick up the van from hellems (bob hellum is an amazing, hard working, honest car mechanic).
Photobucket

it's about a 30 minute walk from our house and along the way, there is a funny little carpet/flooring store that also sells ice cream.

mint chocolate chip was avery's pick tonight. ash tends to go with big sisters choice.

the girls climbed on a rock and avery was hugging on ash and i was snapping pictures of their cute sisterly moment.

and then in this picture avery is holding her bottom and telling me she has to poop.

so we high tail it to hellems, get the van, and drive home just in time. way to go aves.

I totally agree about Hellems.
He is AWESOME!

I had no idea there was ice cream near by there, though!

Yes, the ice cream place with the huge carpet floor store sign still up! Used to be a hair salon about 6-7 years ago, had my hair done there once, didn't go back.
Still need to stop by and try the ice cream! And where is Hellum's? Never heard of it! Is it on Fillmore?

What was wrong with your van? You just bought it!
