Pumpkin Patch Fun!

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!20151003_102242_resized 20151003_123020_resized20151003_103520_resized 20151003_103904_resized 20151003_104430(0)_resized 20151003_110632_resized 20151003_121253_resized Stung by the mean ol bee! :(IMG_20151003_134435  IMG_20151004_123801  20151003_124045_resized  Seriously…I don’t do pumpkin flavored stuff but this was SO GOOD!20151003_113449_resized  20151003_120316_resized 20151003_120424_resized 20151003_110758_resized  And we ended the day with a big Bama win!!!!

Peyton the Trombonist!

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! 2015-09-30 12.58.13 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!

Mary Poppins and Roll Tide!

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!

Vroom Vroom

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!IMG_20150815_075004Brooks LOVES cars! He is always talking about “wace cars!” He wasn’t too happy when we told him he couldn’t drive!IMG_20150815_094506 IMG_20150815_111949 Yesterday, we celebrated my sweet niece’s 8th birthday! It was also my in-laws 40th wedding anniversary! What a crew we have!FB_IMG_1439766009393

Back to School, BOO HOO!

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!

Here they are in all their back to school glory! Griffin started 7th grade, Peyton 6th grade and Reece 2nd!20150813_061814_resized20150813_061909_resized20150813_061455_resized20150813_061546_resized20150813_070335_resized
