playing hooky

well sorta. Zach has the day off today (yay!) because he had to work a ridiculous amount the weekend my sister was here. We have taken full advantage of the day so far.

We started with a healthy breakfast at Waffle House...yum! Micah ATE UP some scrambled eggs and hash browns. He also managed to take everything off the table and put it on the seat next to him. Then we came back and did a quick house clean up and packed a lunch for the park.

We went to Turner Lake Park for the first time. I don't know how we have lived here for 4 years and not known there was a park/lake/playground/walking trail not 10 minutes from us. Micah and Daisy had a blast walking in the woods and feeding the ducks by the lake...well Daisy just watched while wishing she could jump in the water and chase them. We played for a long time on the playground and Micah went down the big twisty slide all by himself. He's so big.

We didn't bring our camera so I don't have any pictures to share, but I have to admit it was very nice to just relax and enjoy the day instead of thinking 'did I get a picture of that yet?' or saying "Micah please be still for one second and smile!"'s nap time at the 'ol May house...nighty night!

Ever Wonder?

If you are a mother you know that sometimes it is necessary to leave your adorably cute and impressionable child home alone with their father. Every time I wonder what will go on in my absence. I'm never worried about the safety of my child I'm just curious about what they will do to pass the time. When I came home from bible study Wednesday night Zach showed me a picture.

After seeing this I decided that sometimes it's just better to not know!!!!

Southern Belle Farm

Pumpkin patch here we come! My sister Jennifer, her husband Chris and my niece Keelie (or ferfer, dis, and Kiki as Micah calls them) came to visit for the weekend. We all went and visited Southern Belle Farm on Saturday and had a great time. It was a MILLION times better than the pumpkin patch we visited last year. There was so much more to do and the weather was great!We started the visit with the pumpkin patch...of course. Micah loved picking up the little baby pumpkins and the gourds, though he said ewwwww everytime he saw the gourds with bumps all over them.They had great set ups for picture taking with beautiful fall flowers and wagons and tractors. Unfortunately after Micah sat on the tractor once he did not want to get up. We finally dragged him away to go see the animals and thankfully that seemed to distract him enough.

We headed to the kiddie corral to see the cows and donkeys and Micah and Zach took a trip down the slide. I'm pretty sure Zach had more fun than Micah because when we saw another slide later Micah immediately started shaking his head and saying no, no, no!

They also had these cool bike/cart things to ride around a track so Micah and Zach gave them a spin.
We didn't get brave enough to drag two toddler/infants through the corn maze but on the way to go look at it we passed the corn husk air guns. We each took our three shots at the targets and Zach won a free drink! yay for me! After a quick lunch at the concession stand we watched the pig races. Micah liked it ok but wasn't interested enough to warrant making him stand in one place so it was off to the tractor again :)

The last stop of the day was the cow train. As soon as Zach sat in it with Micah he burst into tears and wanted to GET OUT! Keelie braved the trip though and had fun and Micah enjoyed waving to the train as it left and said bye about a hundred times so all was well.
If you haven't been to a pumpkin patch yet I definitely recommend Southern Belle...we will be returning their next year for sure!

firefighting ghost

EXHAUSTION! That is all I can say. This baby has wiped me out! That plus taking care of the other one. I admit I am pitiful when I don't feel good which definitely doesn't help matters alive. I will keep my complaining to a minimum though mainly because it sucks out my energy and it's not the right thing to do of course :)

Today, except for one minor incident, I have felt pretty good. Good enough to do all the laundry, clean a bathroom and make dinner. Wow what a feat...ha! I also got a super cute picture of Micah. He took the liner from his hamper out of the laundry basket while I was folding clothes and then hopped on his winnie the pooh fire truck. I was planning on making him a Charlie Brown costume for Halloween but maybe a firefighting ghost is the way to go!
