Zoo trip

We spent Saturday at the zoo and had a blast. The kids are at the right age to really get excited about the animals. They were so excited about the giraffes and zebras, but Sawyer was most excited about the train ride. We are now officially members so we will be back soon I'm sure.

Thanksgiving in the Country

We just got back from a blessed trip to Virginia for Thanksgiving. Sammy's extended family all lives up there in these gorgeous rolling hills and clear crisp nights. We had a great time down on the farm, driving up the 'holler and seeing turkeys, cows, and of course horses. Sid got her first look at a 6 point buck, of course it was dead in the back of the truck but still counts right? Here are a couple of pics from the trip. Hope you all had a blessed Thanksgiving.

Fun at the Fair

Last Friday, we joined with the rest of Lee county and went out to the annual fair. I love the fair; the greasy food, the greasy people running the rides, just a good ole' time. Sidney loved riding the ponies (of course) and the carousel. Sawyer rode one of the rides and started crying in the middle of it, nothing like a screaming baby to liven up the fun! Midway through the night, the rain came pouring down which gave us an excuse to sit under the food tent and eat a funnel cake and some chili nachoes, yum!

Fall brings Changes...

So, my brother has been getting onto me for not posting in a while. Since the last month we have been packing, moving, unpacking, and getting settled in our temporary home, Grandma's, while we wait for our new house to be finished in November. The kids love it here, they spend most of their time out in the backyard or playing on the carport on their bikes. Plus, they have non-stop access to their Grandparents, which they love.

We also celebrated Sawyer's 2nd birthday here! We had a 'Cars' party and the kids all brought fun riding toys to play on. Only a couple of accidents, so not too bad for a party. Sawyer didn't know what to do with the candle on his cake, he thought if he just stared at it, it would just blow out.

Enjoy the pictures!

Spatula Fighting

My kids have resorted to fighting with spatulas or whatever else they can find out of the kitchen utensil drawer. They are always up to something....

Unexpected Kindness

Tonight we were blessed by the kindness of a stranger. Sawyer and I wandered into Old Navy on this tax-free weekend, it was crowded to say the least. He was on the move and found the big bouncy ball dispenser. He started looking it over and lifting up the lid to see if any would magically fall out. Well, his curiousity attracted some teenagers and we were laughing about it when one of the boys stuck in a quarter and let Sawyer turn the handle until one of the balls fell out. It was such a small thing but to Sawyer it meant the world. I was really touched at the thoughtfulness of this sweet kid and just wanted to share it with you guys. So, thanks out there to all of you that perform random acts of kindness, they really do make a difference.

Early 30th Birthday Trip

My Mom and Jess in the Rocky Mountains

My Brothers crossing the Closed Area, such rebels!

Here we are buying cheesy touristy stuff

My 30th Birthday is fast approaching and I am trying to celebrate it as many times as I can so that it will take my mind off the fact that I will no longer be in my 20's. So, this past weekend I jetted off to Colorado to visit my brother and sister-in-law with no kids. Thanks to my wonderful husband who kept the children while I was gone, love ya honey! We had the best time together and had a fun trip up to the Rocky Mountains. (Thanks Ben and Jess for everything!)
