We had a wonderful Saturday at the Griffin Farms Pumpkin Patch! This was the same one we went to last year and it’s great! I’m so glad that we finally have a pumpkin patch in our area! We went through the corn maze, played in the corn cribs, played with the animals, visited with Mickey Mouse, played in bouncy houses, stepped on a bee in one, slid in the giant culvert slide 975 times, ATE PUMPKIN PIE FUNNEL CAKE!!, rode the zip line, climbed the rock wall, rode the hay ride to get our pumpkins…I’m sure there’s something I’m leaving out but you get it…we had a blast! Stung by the mean ol bee! :( Seriously…I don’t do pumpkin flavored stuff but this was SO GOOD! And we ended the day with a big Bama win!!!! Roll Tide!

Back when Peyton was so sick with Mono, he missed instrument selection night for band at school. Supposedly he wasn’t contagious at the time but he still felt HORRIBLE and I just didn’t feel comfortable sharing instruments with a bunch of other kids just in case. Because mono is the devil and we didn’t want to share. The band director is fabulous and he said he would just test him in class. He wanted to play percussion because what boy doesn’t? But that was full, he sounded really great on the trombone(per the director, he is so excited about this!) so the trombone it is! If you hear scary noises coming from our house at night, no worries, we’re just learning to play! #forrealthough #scary
Before we know it, he’ll be playing some tunes!

We had another fun and busy weekend! On Friday night, Reece and I went to see Mary Poppins at the Bama Theater! It was SO good! We knew several of the actors so that made it even more fun! It was a late night for us, we didn’t get home until after 11, which is WAY past our bedtime!

I really need to find the time to blog. I like to look back and see “what we were doing this time last year” all the time and if I don’t pick back up I won’t be able to do that anymore! :)
So, today it’s an Instagram dump of several pictures!
This was during one of Peyton’s Mono check ups! SO glad he is feeling much better! Because ice cream is THAT GOOD! Our girls are laying machines! This is what we get PER DAY! Daddy/Uncle Josh man handling babies! I love me some Joshua Brett! My little toot! Working on a flip house! This kitchen is on FLEEK! Will have to share some pictures when we finish! One of Reece’s friends moved to a different school so we had a sleepover, complete with Friday night lights! :) Our nephews stayed with us the weekend of Alabama’s opening game! Roll Tide! We counted down the days to Dancing with the Stars..this was premiere night! GO PAULA DEEN! “Excuse me, you’re in my spot!” I’m sure that’s what he’s thinking. Gymnastics beauties in their matching shirts! cough cough. TWO YEAR OLDS… Just some beachin’ boys! This boy and his SHOES…he came to me and said, “Do you promise to still accept me when I show you these shoes I am about to buy?” For reals. Peace out. Roll Tide!

On Saturday we were up bright and early, 4am, to head to Talladega for the Hubby to drive a race car! Dude, that’s super early on my only day to “sleep in”! But, he had a fun time so that’s really all that matters! He drove 6 laps around and could have gone 60 more! ha! His top speed was about 173 mph! He likes to drive fast! :) It was fun to watch him zoom by!Brooks LOVES cars! He is always talking about “wace cars!” He wasn’t too happy when we told him he couldn’t drive! Yesterday, we celebrated my sweet niece’s 8th birthday! It was also my in-laws 40th wedding anniversary! What a crew we have!

The kids went back to school yesterday! I’m really sad about it. I miss them like CRAZY. It’s lonely without them around. Plus, now we have to be responsible parents and make them go to bed on time, do their homework and take regular baths! HA!
