Valentines Day and Sickies

One word that pretty much sums up this past week is rain! Are we back in Oregon? It sure feels like it! Wyatt has been sick from the constant ups and downs in the weather, so he and I have been trying hard to stay home as much as possible.

We had a great Valentines day. I was spoiled with lots of love from my guys! We stayed in this year (due to sickies) and had a scrumptious dinner! Wyatt had a great first valentines day complete with applesauce! He loved it!

This weekend the weather was still blah so we spent it organizing...yes, yet again, lunching, and hanging out. sitting like a big boy
Daniel loves to get on the floor (what we have) and play with the little guy on the weekends as much as he can. Well that and watch Texas anything. :)

It is not supposed to rain this week and we are ready to get out and explore!! I am thinking a first trip to the park, several runs, possibly a picnic. How are you guys?

Quick Hunting Trip

This past weekend we decided to take a trip to AR so Daniel could go hunting with my dad. Daniel was able to take off Friday so we had a 3 day weekend with my parents. We got in around 3 am on Friday morning and were honestly exhausted. Friday we didn't do much at all besides relax, laundry, play with Wyatt and go to dinner. Rivertowne bbq is fantastic in Ozark if you are ever looking for a place to eat! :) People come from all over!
My mom got out the my childhood highchair. I think it is very special that Wyatt is getting to use and play with some of the same things in the same house I grew up in! :)
Here he is enjoying peas for the first time.

Saturday morning the guys headed to the preserve. Hershey even got to go hunting and apparently did really well. Makes a mama proud! HA! The guys were gone until dark and had a great time!

We had a birthday party for my dad that night complete with Chicken and Dumplings and my dads favorite- white cake with white icing! We had a great relaxing weekend and Wyatt got lots of snuggles and kisses though it was fast and furious!

We were also able to see the McMillians while in town..and darn it if I didn't get any pictures! They are neighbors and Ben and I grew up with them. They are special to me and love Wyatt very much! Thanks again to my parents for letting us come in and take over..like we always do!
We love you guys and hope to see you again soon!

Daniel is officially finished and I am so proud of him. He may not have gone the traditional route as he enlisted in the Navy, worked, went to school to be a therapist, got married, then we hit the road...but he did it! It has been a challenge to manage work, marriage, traveling, pregnancy, a newborn, the dogs, our friends, etc but he hit it out of the park! We both agree it is time to have some fun....
Daniel I love you and am so excited that now you can just spend time with us! :)

You have brains in your head.
You have feet in your shoes.
You can steer yourself in any direction you choose.
You're on your own.
And you know what you know.
You are the guy who'll decide where to go.
