Let's Have S'mores!

There is a little boy who is having his first kids only Birthday Party! He is BEYOND EXCITED and said yesterday on our way home that he wanted his party now. Well he'll just have to contain himself until Sunday. It's going to be a lot of fun I can't wait to see his face on his big day!

Memorial Day Weekend

We went to Maine for the Memorial Day Weekend with Grammy and Grampy. The official start to the vacation season for the coastal communities! It was cold, rainy, windy and snowed in higher elevations but we still had a great time! Brian was suppose to come up Saturday after work but it was torrential rains at home and he happened to catch on to the fact our sump pump was not working in our basement! Needless to say, he did not have a great weekend, but the basement is dry and thank God he figured it out when he did. No carpet to dry out and some water to suck up.

On Saturday Asa kept asking to go to the beach. The temps were in the 40's and really windy. We finally gave in about 3:00 and bundled up in sweatshirts, coats and raincoats. Grampy brought his metal detector and entertained Asa by dropping coins when he wasn't looking and burying them with his foot. Oh the delight when Ace would dig with his shovel and find his treasure. I did not get any photos, it was way too windy, wet, cold and the fact Gracyn would not let me put him down! He was freezing.

We went back on Sunday afternoon. At least the sun was shining! But don't let that fool you, it was brisk. I can't say enough about how much Asa LOVES the "beesh". He could spend days there with his shovel and pail. It's amazing to see how much he relaxes too once he steps into the sand and hears the ocean. I think he gets that from his Mom :)

Looks like a warm day, totally not the case! - LOL

RELAXATION... Man I needed that!
Thanks Grammy and Grampy for a fun weekend.

Peace and Tranquility

We had a peacefully tranquil Mother's Day Weekend, even though the weather wasn't great we did get outside and pick some dandelions. Mr. Asa LOVES dandelions! He will go out of his way to pick a bud just to rub it on his lips and chin (right Ma?), he loves how soft they are, thank God he doesn't have allergies!
Brian is embarrassed about his lawn, he hates that it's not lush and green, but it just started growing!
And here is Farmer Henry's Chicken Homestead! :) :)
check out the photo bombing white Delawares... They kept following me around, they are the rulers of the roost too, they are little bullies!

Crazytown is what our world has been lately. Busy, Busy, Busy... One project after another and work, work, work. We finally got the baby chickens outside in their coop the beginning of last week. They are so much happier! There was a lot of help from friends and dads to get this coop done. Big thanks to all who made it happen. I will take some pics soon, but in the meantime not much house cleaning is happening because we are having too much fun enjoying the gorgeous weather that has finally arrived!
Lots of Popsicle Capers!

and afternoon drives!


These little pale skin boys are almost as bright as the sun... Lots and lots of sunscreen!
