Ordinary Days

Ordinary days. Good Days.  Nothing exciting, but also nothing bad. Good days.


I was outside checking out a rainbow and happened to catch the boys driving up.  Always a relief to see them safely home.

I'm pretty sure our neighbors are rich now.

This is part of the pack that runs on our corner.  They are minus 5 of them.

Wren was pulling the 2 cars tied together while the bikers zig zagged in front of them trying not to get hit.......in the middle of the street.....on a hill!  Seems like a safe sport.




 Then it was Iley's turn to pull.  She wasn't impressed.  But what goes around comes around.


Some just for fun pictures of the girls.  There are more of Iley than Wren because Iley actually likes to model, and Wren does NOT see the point.  She lasts for 5 minutes tops so you better shoot fast.

A few with her glasses off so I can see her eyes.











A quick trip to Quinter to see these sweet faces.  The boys were going out to Dove hunt, so I told them I was coming along to go baby hunting.  

Papaw and Dawsee Ree.

Cousin Grace and Dawsyn.

 Under the table looking out the window.



 I've been spotted......game over.

Out for a walk around the farm.  Checking out progress on the trench for water to the goat pen.








 Aunt Kait gave Dawsyn a short ride on the bike.  It was too hard to pedal with a low tire.

 Brentley and Iley swinging.


He was supposed to be sweeping the dirt off but he kept adding more chunks and crumbling them up.


 Who me??

Nicole's Baby Shower

Isaac lived with us for a few months, and he's been friends with Thatcher for a long time.  We have gotten to know his sweet girlfriend Nicole, and I wanted to be part of this special welcome for their little daughter to be.  I drove out for the shower....and back in one day.  A long day, but there are some awfully cute sweet faces on the other end of that drive.  

The shower first......in case I forget when I get to the babies.......It was in Isaac's older sister, Carrie's back yard.



I got there early so went to Thatcher and Kyndahls first.  Dawsyn was sleeping the whole time so I didn't get to see her until after the shower for just  a few minutes before I left.  I didn't get any pictures of her since I was too busy holding her and kissing on her.

Cutest little driver around!












 Finn was ON THE MOVE the entire time.  I just followed him around and kept him from killing himself, and snapped pictures.  He was checking out this little bike...next thing I know he had climbed on all by himself!




These two spend their time fussing over the same toy...the toy that neither of them wants until the other one has it.  Then it suddenly becomes irresistible.







This pretty much sums up my view the whole evening

He had spotted the mower and was on a mission.




He had several pieces of watermelon.......eating all but the green part with much relish and mess.

The much coveted by all.......4 wheeler.  The battery didn't work so they had to push it to make it go.

More watermelon



....and more watermelon....



a scuffle over the 4wheeler.


Icing on the face.

He was SO determined to push her!  It wasn't easy to push.....but he managed to do it.


Lots of grunting.....


 Now you've got it!

The little girl is Carrie and Isaac's youngest sister Lexi.  This is only a small view of the evening.  I didn't sit down the whole time except to eat quickly.  But it was so much fun to kiss on and watch these two.  Next time hopefully I will see more of Dawsee Ree.
