Memorial Day Weekend

On Saturday, we went to the Kentucky Horse Park, for Vintage Market Days. Tons of vendors selling all types of vintage-y, Joanna Gaines style decor. We bought a few things, but with the boys we ran through there so fast ;)  Joey and I love stuff like that and we both could have spent hours in there, but we were probably in and out in less than 2 hours.

 After we left, we were both giddy about going to Texas Roadhouse. Seriously. We love this place. I don't know if we've been there since we lived in Utah. Breaker was a fan. 
Notice: Joey decided to give Breaker a fruit pouch to eat in his car seat, which he immediately squeezed out all over himself, the car seat, and the car. So Breaker went in Texas Roadhouse with a t-shirt and fat diaper like the classy people we are. I found a pair of old shorts of Major's in the diaper bag that were a size too big, so we put those on him.

On Sunday, we went to Pop Pop's house for Jack's birthday party. 

The sky was so pretty and the temperature was perfect. It never rained.

All the cousins! All boys!

On Monday, we stayed home and worked on the house all day. 

Mainly outside, including getting more veggies planted in the garden. We have tons of tomatoes and onions, cauliflower, cabbage, asparagus, bell peppers, blueberries and raspberries.

The sunset on Monday night was gorgeous. I never take a pretty sunset for granted. I always stop and thank God for giving us pretty things to look at. 

So very thankful for this place to call home, and the men and women who risk their lives giving us our freedom, and their families who also sacrifice so much.

Happy Memorial Day!

Happy Friday! We of course have a full weekend planned. Tomorrow, we are going to Vintage Market Days at the KY Horse Park. Its this big market with tons of different vendors from all over the country. We have to bring the boys with us, so hopefully they are ok and we actually get to look around. On Sunday, we have our nephew, Jack's, birthday party. 
Today is a big photo dump of the last few weeks.

The day Major decided to get out all of his naughtiness in one day. Most notably, getting a paint roller and painting the floor, the coffee table, the dresser, and the fireplace while I was putting Breaker down for a nap. It came out, thank God. Except for the fireplace. 

That evening he was so worn out from driving me crazy that he fell asleep sitting straight up while we were playing outside.

The Bradley's came to play!

After bath hair.

Planting our garden!

Shep went to a birthday party for this little girl from his preschool class.

Birthday pancakes the morning after he turned 5.

Playing with hula hoops at the Berea Makers Market.

I shouldn't have gotten rid of our double stroller.

Shep and his preschool teachers, Ms. Mary and Ms. Kathy! He had a great first year.

Showing off his sweet plate that Ms. Mary made for him.

Nicknie baby!
(Major used to say "nicknie" instead of naked, so now thats what we call it ;)

Haircut boy! I love the view of our street as the sun is setting.

So enthralled in Bubble Guppies.


Love these pictures of Shep and my dad working puzzles.

Baby shower for Veda and Jonathan. We are so excited for them! 

Shep is seriously the sweetest brother to Breaker. He loves him so much.

Getting so big!

Cracker Barrel, Shep did a good job staying in the lines ;)

Another night of falling asleep at 5pm on the couch. This child needs a nap so bad, but I can't get him to take one any earlier. 

Maj and our new neighbor friend, Cruz!

The boys begged us to blow up the bounce house again, so I invited over all of our friends in town and had a big play date.

Cousin sleepover with Matthew! Last night we had a pizza party and movie, and today we are making a lunch trip to see Joey and go to McDonald's!

Have a great weekend!

Shepherd's 5th birthday party!

Last weekend we celebrated Shepherd's 5th birthday with family and friends!
He wanted a Thomas theme, and has spent MONTHS talking about it, planning it, pinteresting it. He was so excited!

However, this birthday confirmed, I am so not a Pinterest Mom. I bought some decorations at the dollar store and Target, and when Jen and Jeremy got there early, I put them to work.

I did make his cake and thought it turned out cute! (Gigi was in charge of icing!)

This bounce house was so much fun! Joey's brother, Casey, owns it and he let us borrow it for the party.

These two sweet boys will always warm my heart. I love their friendship!

This little boy lives across the street and came over to play for the first time at Shep's party. He and Shep were fast friends!

Eli and Shep!

Major was SO TIRED.

Nothing is happening to this baby with Papaw and Natalie around!

We were having so much fun that we forgot to even cut the cake. We sang happy birthday and let Shep blow out his candles after dinner that night.

Exhibit B of Major's exhaustion. But he was still going hard. Too much fun to be had for that wild child.

Exhibit C:
Parties over, everyone has gone home, we couldn't find Major, and look outside and he's about asleep on top of the bounce house. Just can't stop partying!

It was a great day celebrating our biggest boy!
