Fun Fourth of July and New Farm Friends

We had a fabulous Fourth of July! We spent most of the week at the beach, after getting Reece, Brooks and myself over strep throat! Yuck! There’s really no place I would rather be than watching fireworks on the beach!

You won’t see Peyton in any of these beach pictures. :( We had to make the hardest parenting decision we have EVER had to make and leave him in town. More on that later.

Other than missing Peyton, we had the best time! Playing on the beach with cousins and eating and having beach dates thanks to Paw Paw!IMG_20150705_215657

This kid…SO.MUCH.JOY!IMG_20150702_175630IMG_20150702_181531

After dinner on this night, I rode the Sky Coaster with Griffin! I rode it all the time when I was a teenager and it was time to introduce him! haha! He loves doing crazy things like this just like me so we had FUN! IMG_20150702_211426 Paw Paw called and said he was headed over with Pizza and a PiƱata….so the four of us said, “See ya!” HA!IMG_20150703_171901 IMG_20150704_201533 IMG_20150704_194146

BIG NEWS from the farm!! I mentioned in my last post that we had a pregnant goat. Well, I KNEW she would have them while we were out of town! When we arrived home Reece, Brooks, Griffin and I headed to check on her….we were about halfway to their pasture and Reece squealed, “BABY GOATSSSSSSSS!” Ahhhhhhhhhhh! I practically through Brooks at Griffin because he wasn’t wearing shoes and ran and scooped those babies UP!(Terrible mother, I know.)

Have you EVER???? OH EM GEEEE! IMG_20150705_192650 Y’all!!! I’m so in love! One girl and one boy! Here’s our girl…IMG_20150708_175736   And here’s our boy…20150706_102346_resizedThey don’t have names yet…I’m trying to think of something cute and patriotic since they were born around the 4th of July! I thought about maybe Doodle and Dandy…but not sure yet! :) And since our male is not the daddy…we can keep the girl! :) Hubby says we can keep the boy too(we’ll just have to separate him). So, we’ll see! They just prance and jump and play…so fun!

We are all just smitten! :)

Catch Up!

I need to keep this thing up to date. Sheesh, we are so busy I just don’t have time! We’ve spent a lot of time at the beach this summer! If we aren’t in town working, we’re sitting in the sand!

B LOVES “Supaman”!IMG_20150607_111747 One Sunday evening just after we returned home from the beach we found a little surprise in the chicken coop! We had NO CLUE this was going to happen so it was fun!IMG_20150607_193500

We also have a pregnant goat! She had to of been pregnant when we bought her so we really have no idea when to expect our little kid! :) #goatwatch2015

We snuck away for a few days alone at the beach! Love spending time with my lover love!IMG_20150613_175040

One of our local Chick Fil A’s had Daddy/Daughter date night this past weekend! I had JUST mentioned to Josh that the two of them needed a date when we found out what CFA was doing so off they went! You had to make reservations and everything! They seated them, took their order and brought the food to them! So fun! And then of course they went to DQ for Blizzards! They had fun!IMG_20150620_172616   FB_IMG_1434941681466 20150620_183338That’s about as caught up as we are going to get today!

Memorial Day Weekend!

We had the BEST weekend! Friday afternoon we headed to Atlanta. We had plans for a day of fun at Six Flags on Saturday and a Braves game on Sunday! We thought it would be a great way to end the school year! And it was!This was shortly after we arrived and I was seriously wondering what I was going to do! haha!


After accidentally ending up in the “bad part of town” we found our way to the “good” and had some DIVINE mexican food!

The next morning we were at Six Flags when they opened the gates…and we didn’t leave until they shut them that night! That’s right, open to close. It was the BEST day! There was something for everyone to do and riding rides with my bigs is right up my ally! It wasn’t crowded at all either!
Not many pictures from that day, too busy having fun! And the big boys, they are way too cool for me to take pictures. :(

This was on the train…he LOVED it!







The next day we went to watch the Braves play ball! It was my first game to attend, along with the kids! It was super hot and since it wasn’t sold out, by any means, we moved up farther than our seats to get in the shade…once we did that it was perfect! B even napped!




That’s a WIN for the home team and for a fabulous weekend!

Baseball Champs!

Another season of baseball is in the books for us! Whew. I feel like I can breathe now. We stay SO SO busy during baseball season…go go go go! And that’s just with one child playing! We wrapped up playing last Saturday. We ended up playing two games back to back so we were there for six hours. That’s a lot for a 2 year old. We sat through the blazing sun and the pouring rain but we WON so Champions we are!

This was our Coach’s last year to coach after 14 years and his only 1st Place win! :)IMG_20150516_161022 IMG_20150516_161216 20150516_155308_resized   I have no clue where Griffin was! Ha!20150516_155356_resized20150516_155639_resized Brooks is ALL UP in the coach’s talk! I LOVE this picture. Brother love!IMG_20150519_160531And on a side note…Brooks LOVES LOVES LOVES baseball! He has a bat that he drags EVERYWHERE….in the car, to bed, etc. He has a tee that we were letting him hit off of…then one night at the ballpark some of the kids started tossing it to him AND HE CAN HIT IT! Uh, he just turned 2! He can’t wait to play! :)

Field Trip with Peyton!

Last Thursday I went on a field trip with Peyton to Chattanooga! We left super early that morning and returned super late that night! It was a fun day! He really surprised me because he told me ahead of time he wasn’t going to sit with me on the bus. I have to sit in the front to keep from being sick(still doesn’t work) and he wanted to sit in the back with his friends! WELL, when we got on the bus his “girlfriend” was sitting up front and had saved him a seat!!! He politely turned down his friends and sat with her! OH.MY.IMG_20150423_122154 IMG_20150423_053349 We went to Ruby Falls, ate lunch on the Riverboat, rode the Incline(FREAKY), went to Point Park and the Battles for Chattanooga Museum. I didn’t take a whole lot of pictures because 5th Graders. If you’ve ever had one you know that 30 something of them = WHEW. 20150423_152514_resized

OH. One more thing. When we were in the actual falls area of Ruby Falls, I didn’t stay close long because my hair was getting wet. It’s a large area so the parents kind of let the kids up front. Well, when that part was over and Peyton started walking back towards me he was holding Girlfriends HAND! WHAT? As in, the way the Hubs and I hold hands!!! Her mom was there also and we about died. Right there.

I can’t even.

It was a fun day!
