Every weekend should be like this one

We had such a good weekend!  I wish every one could be like this…it was just so nice.

Saturday the weather was great.  Beautiful and sunny.  We had breakfast at Cracker Barrel and then took our Little Man to the park.

This is the first flower I’ve gotten from my sweet boy!  Of course I kept it…  He’s such a good hearted kid.  He really makes me proud.

Jason had to do some work at the church Saturday evening so it was just me and Rylan for a few hours.

After I mowed and picked up around the yard I took him outside to play.  We hit the sandbox first off and played in it.  Our dog Izzy was making him laugh while she was trying to catch bumble bees in the air.  When he finished with the sandbox we wrestled all the dogs in the back yard and then we had to wrestle them in the front yard too.  He had to look at the chickens and then “ride” the tractor, the lawnmower and the boat.  Since he was in a riding mood I got his 4-Wheeler out and let him ride it all over the yard.  Considering his age he does really good on it.  Then….we did it all again!  By 7:30pm, Mama was worn out and Little Man was getting there.  I brought him back in for a bath, something to eat and finally bed.

Sunday was a rainy day so we stayed inside pretty much all day.  We played, watched cartoons and cuddled.  I didn’t think to get any pictures but it was so relaxing and much needed quality time with the two men in my life.

Today being Monday was back to the grind of work.  It has been a good day though.  Work was busy but not overwhelming and then I had Zumba afterward.  It was great as usual.  I feel so good when we’re finished!  It is always nice to see Anna Ruth and our instructor is just great!  I’m getting to know a lot of other women in the class too and they are really nice ladies.  I’m so glad that I stepped out of my comfort zone and did it.

When I got back home I gave Rylan a bath.  He absolutely loves bath time!  We have these little color tablets by Crayola that turn the water different colors and he loves them!  He also just loves splashing and playing until I drain the water and force him to get out!  Haha!

After his bath he didn’t seem nearly tired enough to go to sleep so we put on music and danced around the house (one of his favorite things to do, the kid’s got rhythm!) for about an hour.  By the end of the hour he stuck his thumb in his mouth and came up to me and hugged my leg.  I picked him up and he laid his head on my shoulder.  I knew it was bed time.

I stayed up long enough to pin a few things on Pinterest and then I was out too.

Blueberry & Blackberry Bushes

I bought some blueberry, blackberry & red raspberry bushes a few weeks ago through Gurney’s.  The blueberry & blackberry bushes came in this weekend so we had to get them in the ground.  I still have some landscaping I want to do around them but I’m so happy that they’re in the ground & I’m excited to see how they do for us.  I hope we get plenty of berries for the freezer as well as for canning!

New Sand Box

We bought Rylan a sand box for his birthday but we are just now getting around to setting it up.  It seems like since his birthday things have been so busy we just hadn’t had time to get any sand.  Yikes.  Anyway, he has it now!

20140804_201141New sandbox, new sand.  Ready for play!

20140804_201148Jersey is always curious as to what he is doing.

He really enjoyed playing in it and throwing the sand we worked so hard to put in out! Haha!

Enjoying May

The weather was perfect today!  We got out in the backyard for an impromptu play/photo session.  I’ll let the pictures speak for themselves!
