Last week we had the privilege of hosting 2 families in our home over the weekend … and following their departure, another sweet girl came to visit for a few days on her way home from Bible school.

We took advantage of the opportunity to pick fresh strawberries at a local farm – and whenย there are strawberries in our home, there may possibly be fresh baked chocolate cake and homemade whipped cream. ๐Ÿ˜€







We love this family farm – they have so many great activities for all ages. ๐Ÿ™‚ The rubber ducky water war may have been our favorite of them all. ๐Ÿ˜€IMG_9200


And how about this slide? I took a few rides down it myself lol.




Later that day we baked fresh chocolate chip cookies – some for a birthday, some for a friend, and some for the police department {thanks to all the guys who made the citizen’s police academy such a fabulous experience}.IMG_9216

Another day, this little bro and I went boot shopping. Talk about a FUNย shopping trip – and guy friendly too! LOL. It was pretty much a blast.IMG_9138

With so many tree trucks in our neighborhood trimming and shredding along the power lines by the road … let’s just say we have quite the collection of mulch piles in our front yard. Make that like 9 truck loads.

Saturday afternoon we worked as a team to cover half of the front yard garden areas. It’s funย how the mulch varies so much – some of the piles are practically all leaves and pine needles. Some of the chips are pink. Other parts are very dark.


We took out about 3 piles on Saturday afternoon. Today we are starting on the other side of the yard. Fun times!

The littlest guy and I went on a run – his first time running a mile on the road. Soon heย will be doingย 5-6 miles with the older ones. ๐Ÿ˜‰
