Weekend Filled with Fun!

This was a very fun filled weekend!!! It was the best of both worlds; we had fun all day Saturday and Sunday with the kids, and on Saturday night, Momma and Daddy had a double more like triple date!!! I think it is important for husband and wives to still spend quality time alone together.  Because in a few short years it will be just you when your kids grow up and either go off to college and/or get married. I don't mean not to spend quality time with your kids, because believe me they DO grow up too fast, but don't forget  your spouse.  Before long it will be just the two of you sitting on the front porch swinging.

Saturday morning started out with me cooking some pancakes and sausage for breakfast.  I think everyone approved!!! Maddie ate two pancakes and two sausages!! She is my little piggy!!

Then we rode on the RZR and just enjoyed our day outside!!!! The weather was great and it felt so good to be outside. I love fall and everything about it!!!

Carter and Chris' toys!!!
Sunday was spent very much like Saturday just enjoying our day outside.

Carter riding Trigger in his RZR!! Ruby thinking she might want to ride too!!

Maddie prissing with her "high" heels!!!!
Saturday night us and 2 sets of friends, Jessica & JT and Christie & Jason went to a festival, called the Bourbon Festival.  None of us had ever been before.  I had seen on Facebook where one of my friends said she was excited for the Bourbon Festival.  So I asked Jessica if they wanted to go and Chris had asked Jason if they wanted to go.  The friend's post that I had seen just so happens to be the wife of the drummer of the KY Headhunters.   You see 2 of the KY Headhunters live less than 2 miles from me, Fred the drummer and his brother Richard guitarist/singer. 
Marla, Jessica, Christie and me
My BFF and I
 We wasn't for sure where the festival was so Jessica text the wife and asked her if it was at the fairgrounds in Bardstown and she said no on the town square behind the Catholic Church!!! When we got there and parked I never imagined this many people in my life!!! It was crazy packed!!!

With the Hubs
  We got a bite to eat and then she text us again asking if we had made it, we said yes and told her where we were and she said I will be right there.  She brought us 3 backstage passes, we told her there was 6 of us, she said come on up to the fenced off area.  When we got there Fred was there and gave us 3 more!!!  It was the neatest event ever!! The Heads may not be your Luke Bryan of today or Kenny Chesney, but it is very neat to say that they are from your hometown, your neighbors, and former ACM Entertainers of Year!! They still "got it"!!!!!  Some of their popular songs are Dumas Walker, Walk Softly on this Heart of Mine, Spirit in the Sky and my personal favorite, My Daddy was a Milkman!

Fun Times, Fun Friends!!!!
 We have declared this to be an annual trip, if you live close to Bardstown, I encourage you to check it out or if the Headhunters ever happen to be in your neck of the woods, it would be worth your while!!! They put on a great show!!!
 My favorite song My Daddy was a Milkman and a little Shimmy Shake from Richard!!!

Sweet Sweet Summer

We had a pretty low key summer. Which is never a bad thing.  The temps here in KY never did get very warm.  But when it did we took every chance we could to get in the swimming pool.  The kids love the water and I love to be a Sun worshipper!!! So it is a Win Win!!!

Maddie loves to play on steps and with her Barbie Dolls.  However she got some of Carter's wrestling action figures out and played with them as well.  Well actually they were Chris' when he was a youngster!  Who knew that Barbie and Hulk Hogan would be swimming together!

Just Floatin!

Yes she is her Mother's child!!! She said look Momma I am getting a tan like you!!! By the end of summer she was the cutest little Coppertone Baby!!!

Spending the day with our Besties at SomerSplash water park!!!! Maddie and Zaylee striking a pose!

When these 4 are together you can bet you will be entertained!!!! It may not seem like fun entertainement at the time, but I can bet we always look back and laugh on it!!! I love how Jessica and my kiddos are so close!!! Notice Carter and Zaylee's hands!!!! There is only 5 years between them...yes now it is a lot but on down the road.....well stranger things have happened!!! ;)

Why Yes I Am Still Here!!

Hello Beautiful Readers!!! I know I have fell off the face of the blog world.  This summer has been a busy one and I am hoping to get back into the swing of things.  So I will do a few posts to get you up to date of our latest activities. 

Let's start with our weekend.  We bought a new Polaris RZR this weekend.  And we LOVE it!!! We went on a ride yesterday and slung a little mud!! What fun!

beginning of the ride, all the SxS's
In the Woods on one of the trails

Our new Ride!!! LOVE!
One Guy had a flat tire, no one had a jack, so we used muscles!
Chris changing out the tire, we told him and all the others they were like NASCAR without the air tools!
And it wouldn't be complete without Carter getting to use his "Turtle Man" Expertise!!!
