Apple Picking

Sunday we went apple picking!
But, we can't just pick apples, we must have some fun too!
Slick examines!
Spike thinks he's got a good one!
Even daddy gets in on the fun!We must take a break, this is hard work!I don't know which part he liked better, being up HIGH,
or tossing the apples to daddy!
This one doesn't go up so high! He's happy to stay with in reach.
Of course daddy wants to go up high too!
Good thing we brought along the big boys! They can pull us for some MORE FUN!
Yep, it was a fun day with friends! 76 apples to can and freeze! Let the fun begin!

So what ever happened to all my peaches?
Well, six bags went into the freezer for smoothies through out the next couple of months,
4 pies frozen (already used 1!),
5 jars of jam,
2 fresh cobblers, (either eaten by the hubby or given away!),
and 3 fresh pies, (again, either eaten by the man or given away!I really enjoyed my work with the peaches! I love to be able to pull a bag out of the freezer and know that I made it!
Now that the peaches are done, I'm on to apples!
Stay tuned!

A little organization, PLEASE!

Just a little peek at what we've been up too! YAY! The hubs has been painting! LOVE it! Finally got a few things back on the walls tonight! The boys are super excited about their own personal hooks! We'll see how long it lasts! In the mean time, I'm enjoying it! Now to just get the rest of it done!

Happy Birthday!

Today's a big day in our house! We celebrate 2 birthdays! Slick shares his birthday with Gramma Dale! Some days he thinks it's GREAT and other days, not so much! Of course today, it was just fine!
Here they are! Happy Birthday, Muzz and Slick!
We started our day with none other then a stop at good old Dunkin Donuts! A big hit, as usual!
He's such a clown! When he wants to, he can really ham it up! He's a ball of energy and very dramatic (not sure where THAT comes from! HAHA!)
Brother got in on the action too! He's not short on the sweet tooth, that's for sure!
Munchkins for a treat at school, can't go wrong there either!
He spent the day at school where he shared his munchkins, his class sang to him and he got to pick from the prize box! What a great day, right!
We then headed off to Dave and Busters! The boys had never been there before, neither had Gramma! Of course, we can't just sit and wait for our food, we must make faces and be silly, right?
Then we got to business! GAMES!!!!!!!!!
Slick wanted a "merican flag" cake this year. I'm really not sure why, but I think Gramma did a fabulous job! Good thing we have her around, right?
Happy Birthday to 2 VERY special people in my life! Can't imagine life with out you!
Love you both!

Demolition Derby

Tonight we spent the night with GREAT friends,
Making great memories,
At my first ever demolition derby!
I have never experienced anything like it! I would have to say it is "bumper cars on steroids!" I think I'd have to say it was one of the funnest things I've done in a LONG time. Being the mother of boys, I'm thinking there will be many more in my future! Here are just a couple of highlights!
The "American flag car" was one of the kids favorites! If you look close, you will see there is no tire on the back wheel! That didn't stop him though! That amazed me!
Pictures just do NOT give you the full effect!
The highlight for the boys, the "Mystery Machine" on fire, TWICE! They really wanted it to win, but if it had to go down, at least it went down burning! They didn't think the firemen were going to do anything all night, but they came through for them!
This is my favorite picture of the evening! Good thing Uncle A came prepared! This was pre-ear plugs, or "plug-ins" as our little princess called them!
It might have been LOUD, but man, it was super fun! Looking forward to the next one!

Coming to an End- Day 6

Yep, I guess that means the end is HERE! Today we headed off to the "first day of school". We had orientation this morning! Counts as a day, but the first OFFICIAL day of FIRST GRADE is Monday! WOW! Here it is!
A little "brotherly love" to celebrate!
All he wanted was a picture with Daddy! Can you tell?
Not sure about the one with Mommy, but ok!
Photography by Slick! Good job, dude!

Coming to an End-Day 5 FAIL!!!!!!!!!

So today, being the last "business day" before school and hurricane Irene, we had some errands to run! I figured we'd finish off at McDonald's with and OUTDOOR playland! Great idea, right?
WRONG!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! This is what greeted us!
The boys were very good about it! But I did think we should do something fun! So cookies seemed to do the job!
Oh well, some things are beyond our control! Speaking of, the boys can't wait to be "in a hurricane!" HAHA! They have NO IDEA! Should be interesting!

Coming to an End-Day 4 Part 2

So being stuck inside did not do well for my creativity! Had to go "old fashioned"!
Pulled out the bubble bath...
and books! (Reading is something daddy usually does with the boys before bedtime! Tonight since daddy wasn't home, mommy did!)
Then, bedtime together in "brother's" bed on the TOP bunk!!!!!Sweet Dreams! (At least I hope!)
