'The Look' returns...

A fun weekend all around. Here is Tucker & Daddy getting ready to go to the woods and check Daddy's traps on Saturday morning. Tucker had a ball!And...ever try to fit a Queen size box springs up a staircase??? Mom was determined it would work...we told her we had already attempted. The following pictures how how it WOULD NOT work. What a memory...
C'mon Sep...I'm pushing...
Wait...it's stuck, Sep!
C'mon Sep...just a little more. You can see Sep is resting on the steps while Mom has 'another' idea! lol
Sep looking a little less then thrilled...
Wait, Sep...I think I have another idea!! LOL...it became quite comical...
We amused her...in reality we all had a very funny funny time attempting..but Mom was hilarious!
Rachet that mattress, down....LOVE!!! Toby gives a Daddy a hug for support.
And then, tries to find his space to help push too.
Toby...Daddy needs you to go back to the Living Room right now, please...
Oh, Sep...I think it's stuck!
Connie...I think we're calling it quits!
Yeah!! Now we can have dinner, Tucker says...
Today we went driving in our trusty Tracker on the state land...We got out because we couldn't drive further on this trail and there was a cute creek.
Daddy, Tucker & Toby taking it in. Great picture. Tucker is such a little man.
Crossing the creek on a little bridge another hunter had made. It was great.
Here is Sep reminding Tucker that he HAS to hold Daddy's hand...no options!
Great creek for 4 wheeling, for sure!
They made it across!!!
It was so swampy...I think I could hear the muskrats talking... ha ha
Finding another area to explore...it was so fun!
Sep telling Tucker to hold his hand...and jump at the same time...
Uh oh!! Tucker is giggling!!!!
Mommy look....I got dirty and wet!! Of course you KNOW he was so proud!
The view as we were pulling out...
After our time in the woods we headed on for dinner...'The Look' that Tucker used to give is now given by Toby too. It's hilarious!
Is this one better, Mom??
How about this one, I threw my chin into it too...
tucker played Mommy's trumpet tonight and was actually decent. Then...he played Daddy's guitar too...cute stuff.

Where did the weekend go???

I took ZERO pictures this weekend. I had FABULOUS opportunities for pictures, too!

Friday night while Sep was working, the boys and I buzzed down to Justin & Brenda's and visited/played, for an hour or so until we headed home for bedtime. Saturday morning Mom, Toby & I went to the City Wide Garage Sales in Midland and didn't have HUGE success. I did get a GREAT clock though...ask Mom about it! ;) While we were hitting the garage sales, Sep & Tucker went to Jays and the Amish store for some trapping goodies...

Saturday night we had a very nice evening with our new friends, the Arrowoods. I wanted to take the camera so bad, but since it was our first time to their place Sep didn't want me to freak them out! Tina made us a fabulous meal and then we headed outside to feed the horses and the boys thoroughly enjoyed that. They have 3 kids and they enjoyed showing our boys 'the ropes'. Then, we took a nice walk through the woods and saw the Teepee that Tina made for the kids last year. Man, I wish I had my camera and then we saw the Teepee that Rob made for the kids this year. All Tina said was..."I didn't use power tools". Rob's was quite appealing to the eye probably a meer 12 ft in height....wowee...then just visiting a bit more whlie the kids played in the yard. It was a nice time. (Did I mention that??)

Sunday...Church...Pastor Shannon turned 3-0 and thought his world was over...Pddyer did a good job rubbing it in a bit, but not too much. I heard someone even played taps for him. ha ha Sunday afternoon...naps...naps...I LOVE a Sunday afternoon nap, even if I'm not tired, there's just something about it. Then we went and spent our savings on groceries and our monthly trip to Sam's Club. eek!!!

Finally, to top off our quick weekend (as it seemed) we did one of our most favorite things to do...went to Mom's for nothing. We headed to Mom's and just visited...sat on the porch...enjoyed her company...loved on her...a very easy thing to do; but oh so important to us to do. Of course, Tucker entertained riding the quad around like a race car driver and Sep entertained even more (at least Mom & I) when he let Toby ride WITH Tucker. Yes, you read it right. Once again, no pictures. But, we love to hang out at MOm's for nothing but a cold pop and a swat of a mosquito. She's such a lovable woman. And, she loves us kids so so much...does so much for us...and loves us so so so much. Thanks, Mom. (How about that tribute and it's not even Mother's day, eh?)

Oh, Sep ended his weekend after we all went to bed...he went and ran Coons with a guy from work. He'll have to share that experience sometime...

Gotta Love Little Boys...

My friend Jenn sent this on and it was way too cute to not share. Sep & I both got a good laugh out of it!
--------------------------------------------
Two young boys walked into a pharmacy one day, picked out a box of tampons and proceeded to the checkout counter.

The man at the counter asked the older boy, 'Son, how old are you?'

Eight,' the boy replied.

The man continued, 'Do you know what these are used for?'

The boy replied, 'Not exactly, but they aren't for me. They're for him. He's my brother. He's four. We saw on TV that if you use these you would be able to swim and ride a bike. Right now, he can't do either one.'
