|Silly boy thought he was so silly!|
|Silly boy is handsome, just like his daddy.|
|Here are the happy boys on top of the fire truck.|
|Look! they're getting so big!|
This fun outdoor activity made me realize what a difference it is living out here in the "sticks". Sure, mom and dad have neighbors, but you can hardly see most of them through the trees, so there's no fear of nosy neighbors or traffic or anything. We had so much fun with our mini-car wash yesterday that today, Noah, Witten and I had lunch outside. We've never done this before, and it was so fun!
|Witten was such a big boy! He used his little fork better than his messy brother did.|
Not only is the back yard great for eating, Bebe and Papa pulled out all the stops and purchased an awesome used play set the shape of a boat!
|It's pretty much this, except a bit older and there's a super fun slide|
Stephan put is together yesterday afternoon and we set Noah to exploring it once it was safe. He loved it! Witten wanted very badly to go up in there too, but he's too small, so we just sent him down the slide a few times. Good enough, he loved it.
In personal news, I am trying to adjust to our new circumstances, and I am,but it's still strange feeling. I have lofty plans to resume my former healthy meal-planning and jogging, especially since the circle surrounding mom and dad's house is approximately one mile, but I have yet to get to it because of an inability to find a steady rhythm yet. It has only been a few days, and things like Dr. appointments and spontaneous invitations to play have caused us to be up and out of the house a lot, so I'm going to cut myself a little slack for not diving right into my idealistic health routine. But only a little slack! I will return to a healthy state and soon! I'm going to the beach this September, for Pete's sake!
Also, I have discovered that party planning, no matter how badly you wish and strive for it to be stress-free, is never without it's difficulties. Despite the forecast being dumb and chilly for this weekend, Noah's party will go on and it will be lots of fun, even if it will be much drier than I originally anticipated. And the cake will be awesome. (Seriously, go try any of the baked goods at cafe Tazza. If Jessie Mayes made them, they will ruin you for all other baked goods.)
Well, readers, this has been fun and long, and I now feel like I've caught y'all up on my life, for the most part. God has been faithful and good and will continue to be so. Praise God! goodbye for now.
Be blessed, readers!
