Happy 4th!

July 4th, 2014

All of us were excited to celebrate tonight for the 4th and because my brother & sister in law were flying in from California.

Annual fruit flag, homemade pico, and a 4th family selfie!

Once the sun started going down, all the guys started getting serious about fireworks.

The “Ring of Fire” (made with a hula hoop for the perfect circle). Im so thankful Jason and my brother weren’t hurt being in the middle of this. It was hilarious watching them! There were fireworks going off everywhere and sparklers in between them. The pictures aren’t as exciting as it was to be there. We also took video. Nothing like teaching two little boys the art of fire! oh boy!

I love my people!

We opened our back gate to watch the Bedford Boys Ranch fireworks. The parking lot across the street was packed. I love that we can see them from our back yard! Happy 4th of July!

take two!

July 3rd, 2014

Jason felt like we didn’t have enough fireworks so we took another ride out to our favorite firework stand.

sweet summah time!

July 1st, 2014

Summer is still going strong around here. The boys are outside most of the day, swimming and playing constantly.

Our garden is getting to the point where it is almost overgrown. The tomatoes are crazy and so good, although a family of caterpillars moved in. Ugh! They love fennel as much as Ranger does!

summer, 2014

We have our share of grasshoppers too. The boys love them!

2014

We love this firework stand…. It is on the way to Roanoke. Looks like we have started a tradition of buying a few fireworks every year, legal and illegal. We’re so bad!

2014

$600 manager’s special! Hey Mommy can we get this?

2014

We spent the evening with my cousins at Robson Ranch. A little night putting and watching fireworks from a few surrounding cities. My Iphone is quickly becoming my go to camera!

2014

2014

We promised the boys when we got home they could swim and try some of our new sparklers.

2014

We may or may not have set off some illegal fireworks too…. Pretty sure our neighbors were not happy with us!

Playing a new game they call “homeless” they sit and talk about what they need. The Bible & baseball cards were the top two.

My 40ishhhh something Birthday

June 25th, 2014

It’s crazy hearing myself say my age now. I don’t feel like I’m in my 40s at all! Not that I know what it is supposed to feel like, but so far 40ish is pretty OKish.

Peyton and Jayden couldn’t wait for me to open my presents. Excuse the pj pants and bed head, but the boys were not going to let me even finish my coffee before I opened gifts! Don’t you love how they are dressed for pictures? Sneaky boys!

New shoes! (I picked these out about a week ago but let Jason put them away for my birthday). Jason and I have started working out together so these were much needed!

2014

Also much needed, new margarita glasses!

2014

new slipper socks, I’m thinking the boys had something to do with this. They quickly put them on right after I opened them. I haven’t seen the socks since.

2014

2014

Ranger always thinks presents are for him…. He almost had this one open before I could get to it.

2014

We ate breakfast, did our morning workout, then took the boys to the park. Yay for new shoes!

2014

I had a date night with all my sweet guys tonight! They were obviously ready to go….

2014

My sweet dates!

2014

My favorite Bday present!!!

2014

We went to The Cheesecake Factory for dinner, then to the lake since it was so nice outside. I had such a good day! Happy Birthday Me!

Happy Birthday Bunny!

June 23rd, 2014

Between Jason’s side of the family and mine, June is busy with birthdays! It’s fun, but whew we are tired when it’s over. Mom’s birthday was low key but really fun. My older sister and I (she’s older by 11 mths) met at my parents house with our kids to spend a few hours with my mom & dad. It wasn’t as crazy as it seems. (My sister has 6 kids!) Mom opened presents and we had cake. It was good to see her so happy. I know it must get quiet around there.

Best parents ever! Happy Birthday Mom/Bunny!

Basketball camp!

June 19th, 2014

The week after baseball camp, both boys went to basketball camp at Cross Timbers Middle School. I didn’t realize how much I would miss them being gone for 3 hours a day… It really wasn’t feeling like summer without them hanging around the house with me, but they had a blast. This camp was so organized and I love the coach! We will definitely be doing this again next year! Both boys came home with a basketball and Tshirt on the last day. They love their basketballs!

2014

2014

Peyton with his group….

Jayden and Bodey, wearing the same shirt, totally unplanned!

And this is what happens after 3 hours of basketball. God bless him.
