Happy Birthday Reece!

Yesterday was Reece's 8th birthday!! I seriously can not believe she is EIGHT! We had her party last weekend. She wanted it at the ice skating rink that she had her party at last that's just what we did!

He had on skates, he's already WAY taller than me! haha!

 She wanted her theme to be the movie Inside Out, so if you haven't seen it you will be totally lost when you look at the cake! ;)

B LOVED ice skating!

Happy Birthday baby girl!!!

Camp McDowell

Griffin and I spent three days last week at the Camp McDowell Farm School!! The farm school is new to Camp McDowell, it’s only been there about a year. We arrived on Monday around lunch and got settled into our cabins…girls in one, boys in the other! There were only 7 girls on the trip so it really wasn’t bad at all! After settling in we ate lunch and then got right to work! The first thing we did was plant some red cabbage in a raised bed. After planting we took a tour around the farm to visit the animals! That night we went on a night hike. In the woods. With NO flashlight…nothing! We hiked and fell down a steep hill and ended up in a cave! It was super cool…we were behind a waterfall…and there were GLOW WORMS in the cave! SO FUN! The next day we had farm chore duty! As in, milking the goats, feeding the goats, feeding the hogs, chickens and everything else! It was fun but it was work! That afternoon we spread several tons of gravel to make a new drive area close to the barn. And by we I mean everyone but ME! haha! The next day we had a farm to table class where we picked things from the garden and cooked. It was fun but I was BEYOND ready to come home!!

I’m very thankful for one on one time with my Griffin!!IMG_20151116_073742
