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!

New Farm Friends!

I think I may have a problem. I love ALL the animals. They are so cute and fun and cuddly. The first step is admitting you have a problem, right?

Our Doberman, Niko, passed away last Friday. He was around 8 or 9 and before he came to live with us probably didn’t have the best life. Their life span is only around 10 years, so we figure it was probably old age.

The kids were out of school that day and Reece was with me at work when I found out. We were both pretty bummed. (She was way more upset) I decided we needed a happy and so off to the pet store we went!

We left with this guy…

Meet Peter!20150424_160221_resized

At first she named him RICK! HA! He’s so cute and soft! He loves to be held and we all are doing our best to hold him all the time!

Side note: when we were in the pet store they signed me up for some type of savings card or something. They got my normal info and then she asked, “what type of animal do you own?” I laughed and started naming them off, “dogs, cat, chickens, ducks, goats and now a bunny!” HA!

I have been looking for a male Pygmy Goat for some time now. About a week ago I found one on Craigslist, but he was 2 hours away! I talked it over with the hubs and we decided that Sunday afternoon would be a perfect road trip day! So, off we went, in the Paw Paw truck! (Yes, I call it that in real life!)20150426_104837_resized(YES, he has a passy. YES, you can judge. NO, I don’t care!)      

Meet Jack!IMG_20150426_170757I wonder what the girls are thinking here?!! Haha!

Hopefully, in the next year or so, we’ll have GOAT BABIES!

Celebrating Brooks!

On Saturday, we celebrated our sweet boy with a Barnyard Birthday Bash! He had the best time and so did we! LOTS of his friends came, I think we ended up with 18 kids there! They were all able to take a boat ride, feed the ducks and fish, pet and feed a cow, pigs, goats, chicks, mice, rabbits, horses, chickens, sheep, a llama, bottle feed baby pigs, ride a pony…I think that’s about it! He had a wonderful time!

Before I get to party pictures, on his actual birthday we took Brooks cupcakes to school for him and his little friends and then out to eat that night! IMG_20150422_202133 IMG_20150422_165936On to party pics! DSC_1732  DSC_1755DSC_0003DSC_1752
