At MeMe's for Mother's Day

We took advantage of an activity-free weekend by heading to MeMe's house. It has been a while since we have been down to see her and we were anxious for her to meet Hallow....oh and see her great-grand kids as well.

One of the first things we saw in MeMe's back yard was a Heron.


All smiles at MeMe's house.

Our sweet Hallow enjoyed the big back yard. She made herself right at home.


I realized this weekend that I officially take more photos of the dog than I do the kids. Oh well, we have plenty of pictures of the boys right?


Benjamin had fun walking along the bank and collecting shells.


Pretty sure Caleb is thinking about pushing Benjamin in.

MeMe has the best backyard every.

Most of Sunday morning was spent at the kitchen table, coloring.

Enjoying some early morning time outside. 

Pretty girl with a pretty collar. 


The FreeWheel was such a help over the weekend. We love this thing and highly recommend it. If you missed my full review of the FreeWheel (plus a coupon for $100 off) click here.

Being a mom isn't easy but it is good. I'm stressed, but blessed and my heart is full.

Happy Mother's Day.

Fun at MeMe's

We headed to MeMe's over the long weekend. We were overdue for a visit since we haven't been since Christmas. The boys love it there. MeMe has a huge backyard with a tank. Unfortunately the weather didn't cooperate most of the weekend. We had storms off and on but managed to catch a few moments of clear weather.

MeMe has a huge wind chime that Benjamin just couldn't resist. He had to give it a good shake at every opportunity.


I'm getting this look from him a lot lately. I'm not sure what it is. It's like a smile and a smirk mixed together. Notice his hair isn't spiky. So he's decided he wants to "grow it out". I don't know what that means exactly and I have no idea what to do with his hair in the meantime. 

A little bow and arrow shootin'.

After some heavy rain, we headed down the street to the storm drain to watch the water flow.

The boys had a blast racing leaves down the rushing water.

 After watching a small curbside waterfall...we decided to check out a BIG waterfall.
Crazy fast water just rushing over the dam. We have had so much rain recently. Benjamin tried to throw rocks into the water. This is as close as I would let him get.

Daddy and Caleb headed to the top to see the dam from up high.

I don't often take photos of food but I just had to for this. What is "this" you ask. This is a funnel cake sundae! Yummy funnel cake smothered in ice cream and sauces. Yum ya'll. 

Both boys were quite smitten with MeMe's cat. Benjamin pretty much followed this cat around everywhere. 

Caleb got a cap gun at the Dollar Store. This is a boy that hates loud noises and these cap guns are loud! I guess he was cool with it since he was in control of the noise. He had a blast.



My boys.

Free range Benjamin. He likes having room to roam....and run.


A little fun over the water.

My little tree climber.

Christmas at MeMe's

We wrapped up our Christmas holiday at MeMe's house this past weekend. The boys always have a blast there and they were so excited to be going. We usually stay at a small cabin that has been in the family for a number of years.

Benjamin sportin' his new pajamas.

The boys sitting at MeMe's table unwrapping Hershey kisses for me. I needed the kisses to make chocolate pretzels.

Handsome.

Jam session on MeMe's piano.

Relaxin' in the recliner. 

Thumb suckin' in the recliner.

Cousin Laura brought her new baby over for us to admire. Caleb was instantly smitten. He loves babies. 


We celebrated MeMe's 84th birthday while we were there.

A little game fun with Grandpa Joel.

With my boys. LOVE.

At MeMe's

We took advantage of the long Labor Day weekend by taking the boys down to the "farm" (aka MeMe's house). The boys love going there and it has been quite some time since we've made our way down there. We divided our time between staying out on the land and spending time at MeMe's house.

Someone is excited.

Benjamin was definitely in his element. He loved having all this open land to roam and run through. He was on a grasshopper hunt when I took this photo.

The boys met a neighboring horse and donkey.

MeMe has some land with cattle so we took some time to drive around and say "hi" to the cows. We also saw a gorgeous sunset. 

Hi cow.


Our mornings were nice and leisurely. It was a welcome blessing to have a break from our normal routine. 

Surrounded by nature. It really is just beautiful out there.

The boys got to ride around in Uncle Mike's truck.They thought that was pretty cool. Not sure what their poses are about.

He's handsome.

A little bird watching.

The cows were a bit curious about Benjamin but they were so skittish too. 


Benjamin was so excited because he found dozens of cicada shells. Seriously, we came home with a bag of cicada shells. He loved it...as you can see from his face.

The boys had such a great time.


This photo is hanging on MeMe's wall....


.....look like someone familiar? 
Wow.
