Garden Update

I thought I would do a garden update! Mostly since I can't find one from last year 
and I would like to be able to look back and compare!! :) 

Strawberry (we have some berries growing!) and Cauliflower

Broccoli and Cauliflower

Onions and Brusselsprouts 

Sugar Snap Pea and Peppers





Zucchini, Eggplant, and Squash


I also have Basil, Cilantro, and some smaller varieties of tomatoes in the white barrels!! Everything is looking good so far!! Please excuse the weeds, I have been working hard at it but it truly is a never ending battle!!


Irene, SD Rodeo!!

Last night we went to the Irene, SD Rodeo and had so much fun! we had been wanting to go for a few years, but we are usually in Mississippi. They have Mutton Bustin, but it is luck of the draw (they let 50 kids sign up and only pick 15 of them) so we weren't sure if Merr was going ride or not. When we got there a lady came and found us and asked both boys if they wanted to be in a skit with the rodeo clown, McCoy right away said he wanted to, but Merritt had just woken up (in a bad mood) and was not I took McCoy to rehearse!! He was so excited and fell in love with Goobie the Rodeo Clown! 

Got out of the bad mood thankfully!! :)

Thye called out the 15 Mutton Busters right before McCoy was to perform, and luckily Merritt got chosen! So Craig took McCoy over to the clowns tent and I took Merritt to line up for Mutton Bustin!

game face!

Merritt did so good and got another trophy to add to his collection! 

They had a candy toss and Goobie gave the boys hat fulls of candy!

McCoy and Goobie!! He was over the moon excited!! :)

Musical chairs skit!!

We had such a fabulous time, but of course are all exhausted today!! Hopefully we can get the little monsters in bed early tonight to get some much needed rest for the crazy days ahead!!


This Week!!

Yall I am TIRED and our summer has just barely started!!! I have planned and signed the boys up for so many things, that I forgot to pencil in some down time!!! Here's a few pics of what kept us busy this week...

Cars 3! Soo cute!

Merritt had two days of Nature Camp and absolutely loved it!!

More working with Jakey!!

I love these boys!

While we were waiting to pick up Merritt from camp, I checked out a huge fabric store nearby. They had a play area for kids and I almost jumped for joy!! 

Then we stopped by a park and had some fun!

He even talked me into going down the slide! Mom of the year! ha!

Nature Camp fun!

How cute are their name tags they made??!! Love it! 

We are all exhausted this morning from a rodeo last night (more about that later!) and today we have to wash and clip Jake, along with packing for the horse show and an overnight stay in Omaha where we will pick up my niece!!! Can't wait, but also tired just thinking about it!! Here's to summer!! :)
