Hey All, Happy-Happy-Happy Tuesday!!!
We are getting back to schedule and business as usual over here because for over the last week we had family out from California. More specifically, my Sister, her two kids and my Tia (Aunt in Spanish) and my brother surprised us from Kansas for mother’s day weekend. It was sort of like a vacation for us as well because we had a waaayyy relax schedule, a lot of hanging out, eating, going to stores on days I usually don’t go to the store (getting crazy) and going on little outings!
One of the things I miss the most is the kids all getting to be with each other. The girls love playing toys together and playing outside and Bryce just can’t get enough of little Jer-Jer.
My Sister and Aunt usually come out once a year around this time and we look forward to it all year! Especially when my Aunt is here, it’s like I have a little assistant in the house and I LOVED every minute, Sunday morning I woke up and was like, oh yeah-this is all you now, ha!
Here a little glimpse of our time spent together…
Straight from the airport we went to Freddy’s!
The people were hungry 😁 and it’s is right next door to a Walmart so my sister & Tia could get some grocery items they needed.
A match made in heaven, Bryce & Jer.
There’s a special cousin bond between them two!
We went to the park one day and had a little picnic lunch
and of course, Maddie found herself a little caterpillar!
On Sunday Uncle Ty surprised my Mom for Mother’s Day and if you couldn’t tell Jer was surprised and just as happy to have his buddy back!
All his nieces and nephews were just as happy too, don’t mind my sister holding the knife, ha, she was in the middle of cutting a watermelon when he walked in!
The girls were little scruffys all week, hair everywhere and having fun!
In the midst of all the fun, my kids still had things going on like swim lessons, baseball practice and summer school.
Trying to get everyone in the picture and looking was hard, sorry Tia, lol!
On Monday before my brother went back, we visited Fantastic Caverns, a local attraction that was so cool!
See these two, this was like Bryce and Jer-Jer when Bryce was a baby. Uncle Ty just wanted to hold Bryce all the time and Bryce always wanted to be where Ty was…
Naomi just couldn’t understand how all that stuff got into that box, she kept asking, how did the coyote get in there?
(I know that animal isn’t a coyote)
This is a little pairing you don’t see very often and it was so sweet.
Maddie got some special time and went with us to the mall while the other kiddos stayed back at the house with Grandma.
Then early-early Friday morning (2:30 a.m.) we lost power all the way til 2 p.m. that afternoon, we had to run on generator so the cows could get milked but…it wasn’t fun times for Jer or my Dad.
This was the first time we had to use a generator that is p.t.o. driven and wired into the electrical pole. It was a learning lessons and now we know what to do next time!
That was a little glimpse into our week of family time and can’t wait for next year when my sister will have one more to add to the mix!
