|The 1st swim of the year! May 11th, it was pretty cold but it was a ton of fun and totally worth it. All the kids had a blast and it was really warm outside so that helped at bit with the recovery ;)|
|Fatty Patty & Rachelle|
|For a mother's day afternoon activity we made Oreo Chocolate cookies. It was a blast and a fun new recipe! Highly suggest you try it if you haven't.|
|Amber was having some issues with her horse, so we went for an evening ride to work with her. It was fun and we got to have some good conversations which is always a bonus!|
Soooo this will be a bit of a story....
After Amber and I got home from riding the horses, Amber went to get Soffie off her chain outside but she somehow managed to get lose. We have not had her a really long time and we didn't know if she would try to get our rabbits or not. So to be on the safe side we started to bring them into the garage but their hutch weighed "a ton and a half"! So instead we carried them into another cage we had, mean while the house kinda got woken up. AND 2 bunnies escaped. Luckily we got them all into the garage safely. Then all of a sudden we heard Aimee say something about a frog. Them Amber and I started our toad hunt, and after a bit of screaming and work we caught it. At this point Ty and Aimee where up, and very excited to get in on the fun. We got the toad in a cage and we headed back to get the little's to bed.
When I woke up Sunday morning I could hear the kiddos up talking about a huge moth in the house. Which we now believe to be a Hyalophora cecropia. We caught it and put it in a jar. Aimee claimed it for her own and she named it Sissy. Matthias claimed the toad (even though it is secretly still mine) and we named it Billy Cricket.
|After making breakfast, delivering a mothers day gift and some chores we started some "Moth and Toad" research to see what they eat and where they like to live. So the picture below shows us coloring some pictures of our SPECIAL new members to the family :)|
|Matthias giving me a big kiss!|
|We are really all just kids at heart! At least I am & I know I always will be.|
|I walked outside to find these little shoes of Fatty Patty's on the patio. |
It is truly the small things in life that matter.
|Out hunting for food for Sissy and Billy.|
|A few seconds latter I find him trying to clean him self in the bathroom. There was now mud all over the sink, counter and floor but once again I had to take a photo. |
These are the moments you will never get back.
|Chubby dirty little toes on the counter.|
|Fatty Patty has a hard life :) She is such a sweetie! She just learned how to throw her hands in the air and say YAY! So darling. She also started saying shoes and bottle. :)|
|Making some dessert with the little's. The cutest conversations EVER happen when working together.|
|My 2 favorite youngsters:) Then to find Matthias with chocolate covered fingers trying to catch another moth to add to the collection. Made me smile and wonder what my life would be like without them.|
